BURGESS GEARS UP FOR TWO BLIND DATES!

Burgess have been appointed Joint Central Agents for the sale of BLIND DATE (Trinity) and BLIND DATE (Lurssen). Both yachts have also been signed by Burgess for charter as sole Central Agents and have joined the Burgess fleet of operationally managed yachts.

BLIND DATE (Trinity)

Winner of the Judges' Special Commendation at the 2010 World Superyacht Awards for her innovative layout and build quality, BLIND DATE (Trinity) is one of the newest Trinity 161s. Recently reduced in price to USD 31,000,000, she has superb charter credentials with a strong track record and a solid following.

Available for immediate purchase, the yacht will be exhibiting at the Palm Beach Yacht Show (24-27 March) prior to heading to the Mediterranean for the summer season. This yacht comes with a rare guarantee of USD 1,500,000 charter income in the first year of ownership.

Form, function, colour and texture have been combined to fulfil the owner's brief of fun, relaxed superyacht living. With sophisticated interior styling by the renowned designer Patrick Knowles, a neutral, light palette is highlighted by accents of silver, grey and wood creating a theme of old-school glamour from the Hollywood era.

Designed to maximise outdoor enjoyment, the yacht features a spectacular sundeck with a centrally-located jacuzzi surrounded by enormous
sunpads. Numerous other seating, lounging and dining areas are spread across her spacious decks.

Accommodation is provided for up to 12 guests in five cabins. A stunning forward-facing, split-level owner's suite on the main deck is an entirely private area and contains a private lounge with panoramic views, his and her bathrooms and excellent storage facilities. Elegantly appointed guest accommodation is housed on the lower deck in three double cabins (one with pullman), and one twin cabin (with pullman), which can be converted to a double.

The highly regarded, innovative BLIND DATE (Trinity) represents a superb opportunity to acquire a fantastic yacht with a turnkey charter business in time for this summer.

BLIND DATE (Lurssen)

Lurssen pedigree combines with stunning new interiors from award-winning designer Patrick Knowles on board this 41m yacht. Outstanding engineering and excellent build quality are evident throughout.

Originally built in 1995 for a European owner who housed her out of the water in covered facilities each winter, BLIND DATE (Lurssen) was refitted in 2004/5, during which time the interior was entirely rebuilt to create a calm, 'Zen-like' environment throughout. The yacht has subsequently benefited from the care and attention of an experienced owner together with a thorough, ongoing maintenance and upgrade schedule.

BLIND DATE (Lurssen) has a shallow draft allowing her great flexibility in accessing diverse cruising grounds and anchorages. She also runs to an impressive maximum speed of 22 knots.

Accommodation for 8 guests is provided in a fantastic forward facing VIP cabin on the main deck with 180 degree panoramic views, a full beam (27ft) master suite, which includes its own lounge area and two further double cabins. The interior layout is extremely well conceived and affords a feeling of space that belies a yacht of this length.

BLIND DATE (Lurssen) is commercially registered and is a proven, highly successful charter yacht in mint condition. Her fantastic deck spaces and light-filled interior offer wide appeal to both the private client and charter markets.

Asking Price - USD 9,500,000
