VENDETTA is a 17.5m (57.4ft) motor yacht of composite construction delivered in 2005 by the American builder, Derecktor Shipyard. This classic style yacht has the character of a 1920s commuter yacht with modern technology and amenities. Designed by the naval architect, Doug Zurn, this one-of-a-kind yacht was refitted in 2019 and presents in immaculate condition.
VENDETTA was originally built as a luxury commuter yacht for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame musician, Billy Joel. She was designed to be the fastest Long Island Sound commuter yacht, with the range and stability of a much larger yacht. Now owned by an experienced yachtsman, she has been upgraded and maintained to the highest degree.
The semi-enclosed cockpit is surrounded by windows, giving an outdoor feel while providing protection from the natural elements. During the 2019 refit, the aft deck was redesigned with entertaining in mind, including wraparound seating finished in Italian leather and a removable awning for sun or shade as required.
With ample interior space, VENDETTA provides the perfect platform for entertaining up to 12 guests for a day on the water. Her elegant interior features a bright and open dining and lounging area finished with high gloss mahogany cabinetry and new teak flooring. Forward of the saloon is a bathroom with shower.
Powered by twin MAN 1,300hp diesel engines, VENDETTA can reach a maximum speed of 45 knots and cruises at 35 knots. Her composite hull glides across the water and provides ultimate stability and exhilarating performance.
We are delighted to present this unique and versatile yacht for sale with an asking price of USD 1,695,000. She is lying in Newport Beach, California, where inspection can be arranged. Please contact a Burgess broker to find out more.
