FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--On August 24, Emerald Isle, a 126-foot Christensen
motor yacht, will sell at auction at the Lauderdale Marina. The luxurious tri-deck yacht will sell with a minimum
reserve of $2.85 million at the event, conducted by J. P. King Auction Company, the nation’s leading real estate
auction marketing firm.
Originally on the market for $7 million, the 1993 single-owner yacht underwent a $2 million refit in 2009, including a
new micro-command system and a major engine overhaul.
“Emerald Isle was special for us because it was big enough to be roomy, yet it was small enough that we could go
into areas that other boats could not go,” said Bonnie Harvey, the owner of Emerald Isle. “It was like home.”
The motor yacht features amenities such as European fabrics, HD LCD televisions, stone and onyx countertops,
Sub-Zero refrigerator and a sky lounge. A 2009 20-foot Novurania and two 2009 jet skis are also included.
Navigation features include a Furuno 96 nm radar with 72-inch open array and 12kw super high definition radar
pedestal; a Northstar 941X GPS navigation system and a Furuno SR100 weather receiver with a high-speed
network switch and a 17-inch display.
“This is a premier motor yacht with a minimum reserve that would be a great value,” said Craig King, president and
CEO of J. P. King Auction Company. “Its four bedrooms and sky lounge are relaxing and peaceful but also great
for entertaining. This event provides great opportunity to own a vessel that defines luxury.”
The main salon provides opportunity for entertaining and has been updated with European fabric, onyx tabletops,
wet bar and Brazilian Honey Teak cabinetry.
“I loved the privacy and how much time it allows you to spend with your guests. It is like being on your own island,”
said Harvey. “It’s the nicest way to have guests.”
