Broker Comments

This is an excellent example from Stephens Marine, a premier West coast custom builder. Stephens has frequently been referred to as a “West Coast Burger.” This vessel was the third custom-built Stephens yacht for her original owner and called "Love Affair." Her second owner purchased her in 2010, named her “SEAFIRE” and cruised to the Bahamas annually. Her third owner purchased her in 2014, named her “GREAT SCOTT” and cruised between Newport, Rhode Island and the Florida Keys. In 2016 he put her through a thoughtful refit with extended cruising in mind, but a change of plans has placed her on the market. Her striking timeless styling combine with her efficient sea kindly hull design, 10 knots @ 15 G.P.H. and oversized stabilizers make for a comfortable cruising yacht. A must-see if you desire a traditional pedigree, long-range motor yacht.
