ESTRELLA - 1988 95' BROWARD Pilothouse
Fort Lauderdale Florida United States
NOT FOR SALE TO U.S. RESIDENTS WHILE IN U.S. WATERS
Environmentally friendly self-sufficient superyacht produces its own energy and drinking water from the sun! This Broward Yacht can stay away from the marina for months or even years. The solar self-sufficiency makes running costs of this yacht extremely low. Yes, she is truly a luxury home on the water that anyone can afford to run.
WILL ACCEPT CLEAN TRADES!
The current owners chose to use the boat as more of a home than a distant cruiser and in doing so decided that making her self-sufficient and self-reliant was paramount. They managed to run the vessel by themselves as the boat was customized to be able to be managed by just the two of them. Being experienced boaters, they were able to run the boat affordably by doing basic maintenance themselves and scheduling the hull maintenance over longer periods of time, by using long lasting hull products as is used in larger shipping. With all their electrical and water needs covered by the sun the only outgoing expense that they have for the boat was propane bottles which they refilled twice a year. Of course, everyone is different, you could do long distances, have a crew of four and stay in the most luxury marinas if you wish. The current owner's aims were different, and they have shown that anyone can run a large “home” on the water for a fraction of the cost of your home on land...and with all the benefits!
The owner and guest staterooms are private and separated from the forward crew quarters by separate private access. The master stateroom is full beam and features a his and hers bathroom with shower and Jacuzzi bath. Located to starboard is a large guest cabin with walk around queen berth and ensuite bathroom. The portside cabin features two large single berths with a stowable bunk berth and ensuite bathroom. A staircase down from the galley accesses the private staircase to crew quarters. There is a double berth cabin located in a forward bow cabin plus two single crew berths with a shared mess and shared bathroom. The yacht’s 20-foot beam is noticeable as you walk throughout the boat. Starting aft at the stern, the swim platform is connected to the aft deck by a staircase at the transom which houses a garage with considerable space and head height. The aft cockpit sundeck is spacious, covered, and flows into the main salon. The salon is large, at nearly 30ft (9m) long and the full beam of the boat, larger that some homes. She has a bar at the far end near a formal dining table area. The on-deck day head is located just forward of the bar to starboard. Moving forward is the wheelhouse, accessed via steps found on both port and starboard side. Flybridge is accessed from a manageable staircase in the wheelhouse and will find an upper equipped helm station with electronic controls at the port and starboard sides for easy docking as well as the normal driving position. The Flybridge also houses entertaining area for 20+ seated guests, a jacuzzi, adjustable lounging beds and a wet bar area. At the aft end of the flybridge you can find an upgraded crane for a jet ski and tender (not included). The yacht has a smart looking country kitchen forward from the wheelhouse with breakfast bar and large dining table just further forward and more than ample storage. Forward of this you find the private staircase to the crew quarters and engine room. The self-sufficient electrical system is such that the boat is virtually silent at anchor and never has the need to run the generator day or night. Making for a quiet and environmentally clean living on the water.
