CHRISTENSEN 155’ MOTOR YACHT. 1997.
An extensive, 19-month refit that concluded in 2017 transformed LOON from top to bottom into better-than-new condition. In 2018 and 2019, the current owner continued substantial upgrades in the realms of the electronics, mechanics, decor, galley appliances, entertainment systems, flybridge fixtures, and deck installations. Naiad zero speed stabilizers also were added.
Exquisitely finished in a light cherry wood interior, elegant furnishings in neutral shades, and superior stone and dark wood surfaces, LOON is designed with 6’9” headroom throughout. Large, deep windows on each deck level afford wide vistas and a wealth of natural light. Six cabins with ensuite bathrooms luxuriously accommodate 12 guests. The expansive, full-beam King Master is forward on the main deck and a queen cabin is just aft. The four additional guest cabins are below. Day heads are located on the main and bridge levels.
The crew area, forward on the lower deck, includes four cabins with ensuite heads that sleep 8, a crew galley and lounge, laundry facilities, and walk-in refrigerator rooms. The spacious Captain’s cabin with queen berth, ensuite bathroom, desk, and vanity is on the bridge deck, just aft of the pilothouse where three leather helm chairs face a well-arranged console and bench seating is provided for guests.
The main deck salon is an elegant, intimate space with an oversized couch and four armchairs arranged around a coffee table. Formal dining for 10 is adjacent, just aft of the galley that features a large central island with a massive top of Giallo Valenciano granite, oversized windows, and a door to the portside deck for easy provisioning. Professional quality appliances are from Kitchen Aid, SubZero, and Viking.
Wide glass sliding doors provide access from the salon to the lovely, open aft deck fitted with a wet bar and dining for 12. Starboard stairs lead down to the substantially-sized swim platform and up to the bridge.
The yacht’s primary salon and relaxation area is the delightful sky lounge which offers comfortable group seating, a game table aft to port and a service bar starboard. A large screen TV is built into the forward cabinet. Aft, the outside deck is completely shaded by the sundeck above, affording comfortable relaxation and conversation in chairs surrounding coffee tables.
Exceptionally large and partially covered by a hardtop, the sun deck is designed with a helm station and three chairs forward, aft of which is a four-person sunbed, a dining table with oversized settee, refrigerator and sink, and 10-person Jacuzzi. Further aft, the tender deck, which houses the tenders and davits, has been strengthened to accommodate helicopter landing.
Centrally located aft of the guest staterooms on the lower deck, the pristine engine room is serviced by an air-conditioned control and switchboard room to starboard and a workshop to port. The former is equipped with the ship’s central monitoring and alarm stations and the main switchgear with auto parallel and a 200 amp shore service.
Located in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands.
