The Sacks Group Yachting Professionals Highlights For Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Fort Lauderdale, FL – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine

The biggest boat show of the year always is an exciting time for The Sacks Group Yachting Professionals (TSGYP). This year, two exceptional yachts will headline the fleet at The Sacks Group’s display in Las Olas Marina, Dock A, at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Sh ow, October 28 – November 1, 2010. Both TSGYP Central Agency Listings, they are the 124-foot Delta SEA OWL and GOOSE BUMPS, a 78-foot Hargrave Flybridge Motor Yacht.

The custom megayacht SEA OWL (ex-LADY LINDA) was launched by Delta Marine in Seattle to worldwide acclaim, including being named ShowBoats International’s “Best Motor Yacht of the Year”.

From her tank-tested naval architecture and high-tech composite construction to her state-of-the-art VSAT communications package, SEA OWL is outstanding in every detail. Professionally managed by IMA Yachts of Fort Lauderdale, she has been impeccably maintained and extensively updated. Recent refits and upgrades include Quantum Zero Speed stabilizers, exterior paint, full W-6 overhaul of her 1,800hp MTU/DDEC diesels, KVH Fleet 55 Satcom with 24/7 Internet, Kaleidescape audio/visual entertainment system with flatscreen TVs throughout the boat and a state-of-the-art security package.

SEA OWL features a classic interior design by Claudette Bonville & Associates with updates by Patrick Knowles Designs. Highlights include American cherry joinery with rich burl inserts and an eye-catching stonework package by Jeff Homchick. The yacht accommodates eight to 10 guests in four luxuriously appointed en suite staterooms, including a full-beam master suite with king bed, main-deck VIP and two queen cabins. Adding to the versatility of the layout is a sky lounge that can be converted to a fifth stateroom, complete with full-size bath and shower. The large crew quarters accommodate eight crew members, permitting a one-to-one guest/crew ratio if desired.

Representing an unparalleled value, SEA OWL is listed at $10,500,000 USD. This yacht is not for sale or charter to U.S. citizens or residents while in U.S. waters. The name SEA OWL is reserved for the current owner.

GOOSE BUMPS is one of the most innovative custom yachts Hargrave Custom Yachts has ever built. Commissioned by an owner who was downsizing from a much larger yacht, she was designed to be efficiently operated by a crew of two. GOOSE BUMPS has one of the largest fly bridge decks available on a yacht of this size, perfect for entertaining, sunning and relaxing in the six-person spa. The upper helm station, wet bar and table seating eight guests are sheltered by a large custom hardtop and surrounded by isinglass, creating an alfresco dining area with 360-degree views.

Yacht Interiors by Shelley created a classic interior design for GOOSE BUMPS that features Mozambique mahogany woodwork contrasted by neutral carpet and furniture with occasional bursts of color. The open salon looks and feels much bigger than is typical on a yacht in this size range. There is a casual dining area in the pilothouse, forward of the well-equipped galley. Below, the flexible master stateroom has a king berth capable of being converted into two single beds, plus his-and-her heads connected by a large shower. Six more guests are accommodated in three ensuite staterooms, including a VIP with queen berth, a twin cabin and a bunkroom that’s ideal for kids. All the guest areas are served by high-end entertainment systems with Crestron Gateway controls. The yacht also is equipped with a full Furuno navigation suite, including 1954 Black Box system.

This immaculate Hargrave has been maintained to the highest standards. She comes with full-extended factory-transferable warranties on the Caterpillar C-32 main engines and twin 27.5kW Onan generators. GOOSE BUMPS is listed at $3,350,000 USD.
