“Meet "Columbus," formerly known as "Life of Riley," a yacht with an intriguing journey and a world of possibilities. In July 2021, this vessel found a new home in the capable hands of a seasoned New Zealand Yachtsman. Embarking on an adventurous transformation, the owner introduced essential enhancements, meticulously provisioned the ship, bid farewell from San Diego, and set sail across more than 7,500 Nautical Miles to reach her new haven in New Zealand.

Over the course of the following year, the owner dedicated an astonishing one million dollars to a multitude of upgrades and improvements, which are meticulously outlined in various sections of this listing's narrative. As you peruse the comprehensive array of photographs in this listing, you'll witness the extensive collection of tenders and water toys, along with numerous enhancements to the outdoor spaces of "Columbus," including the Boat Deck and the luxurious aft "Beach Club."

Notably, "Columbus" underwent a significant refit first at the DELTA Shipyard in Seattle and then at the DELTA yard in Sidney, British Columbia. The vessel also received tender loving care at the CRESCENT Shipyard in Vancouver, BC, where she was originally constructed.

Intriguingly, the seller is open to a unique financial arrangement that presents an exceptional opportunity for the new owner. This arrangement allows you to partake in the journey of a lifetime, joining forces with "Columbus" to return her to North America. It's a rare chance for the new owner, captain, and crew to familiarize themselves with the vessel while enjoying the enchanting South Pacific, complete with its myriad islands and captivating ports of call. Picture yourself setting course for destinations like BORA BORA, The Cook Islands, Fiji, Samoa, The Solomon Islands, Palau, Vanuatu, Australia, The Great Barrier Reef, New Caledonia, Easter Island, and The Hawaiian Islands along the way. The adventure begins here, and "Columbus" is your passport to a world of exploration and delight.

Accommodations

SUN LOUNGE - The main deck is accessed from either the port or starboard side entry doors or an entry door forward from the cockpit. Features include a bar equipped with a refrigerator, ice maker and a breakfast nook settee that seats six around a beautifully crafted, hydraulically operated hi/lo teak dining table and teak deck. A polished stainless steel spiral staircase to port leads to the boat deck. One of the unique features of the sun lounge is the outward opening and sliding glass windows around the perimeter giving a fresh air environment.

SALON - Separated from the sun lounge by electric glass doors which operate either automatically by a motion sensor or by manually pressing an activation button. Similar to the sun lounge, the salon has four sliding windows allowing fresh air cross ventilation. The salon is extremely spacious, taking advantage of the full width of the generous 24' beam. The salon is designed with a formal dining area in the forward section, game table center and a comfortable lounge area featuring an entertainment center in the aft portion. These distinct areas of the salon are beautifully highlighted by the tasteful use of teak and beveled glass, illuminated cabinetry, indirect soft lighting and inset lighting details. One of the signatures of this custom yacht is the reflective ceiling soffit whose design compliments the graceful contours of the cabinetry. Forward of the entertainment center is a games table which seats four and cabinetry featuring built-in surround sound speakers for the television.

DINING AREA - Beautiful dining table seats 8 comfortably for formal dining with custom crafted teak table with golden maple racetrack inlays. Ample storage is provided around the table in teak and beveled glass-fronted buffets. This pass-through is closed off by mirrored teak doors.

GALLEY - Accessed either from the entry door inboard of the starboard companionway, immediately forward of the day

head, or from the port main deck entry door. This allows the galley to have discreet entries and be entirely closed off from the remainder of the vessel and not disturb owner and guests. The galley is equipped with large commercial refrigeration units and has tremendous storage space, two very deep appliance garages, all upgraded appliances and a large U-shaped counter top.

POWDER ROOM - Located off the starboard companionway (On Deck Day Head)

MASTER SUITE - At the forward end of the companionway, there is a king-size bed located on the center line of the

stateroom with the head of the bed positioned on the forward bulkhead.

A settee is located on the starboard side with teak counter tops and stacked drawers beneath. Entertainment includes a TV/stereo. A large walk-in closet lined in Tennessee Cedar is located on the starboard side as you enter the room with a hidden safe. Completing the master suite is the en suite head & shower. Completely new marble and shower and head 2014)

VIP STATEROOM - Contains a queen-size berth positioned on the vessels centerline with large nightstands and

bookshelves on both outboard sides. An entertainment center is built into the forward bulkhead and is enclosed in fine

cabinetry. To starboard, a large dresser and the entry door leading to the en suite head. The stateroom contains the largest en suite bath aboard (new 2014).

TWO DOUBLE GUEST STATEROOMS - Located at the end of the foyer, the staterooms are identical except that the port is equipped with twin berths and the starboard with a full-size berth. Both staterooms contain complete entertainment centers, desk, night tables, dresser drawers and a large hanging locker. The en suite baths are equally pleasing and equipped with enclosed showers (new 2014).

SKY LOUNGE - features a large sectional leather couch and the view forward encompasses the full wheelhouse. This

lounging area is equipped with television and stereo, ice-maker, refrigerator and sink. A powder room is to starboard at the aft end.

FLYBRIDGE - Seating is provided for three on custom built helm chairs with additional seating for six to eight located both port and starboard on the custom molded fiberglass benches. The flybridge has a complete helm station protected by a Plexiglas top and custom fitted canvas. Behind the helm seating is a hydraulically operated mast. Recessed lighting, floodlights, spotlights, aft facing cameras, stereo speakers and communication antennas are all mounted on the mast.
