$33M superyacht in Nelson


A $32 million super yacht, with an on-board helicopter, has docked at Wakefield Quay.

The super yacht Evviva was built in the United States in 2006 and last year was on the market for US$22.5 million, or $33.3 million in New Zealand dollars. It is reported to be owned by Bayliner Marine Corporation founder John Orin Edson, who is worth more than a billion US dollars, according to Forbes Magazine.

Boat International website says it is 50 metres long and can host 12 guests in six cabins.

“The main saloon is warm and elegant with two large sofas to port and starboard and the requisite 50 inch wide screen plasma television that rises out of the forward cabinet. Further forward a formal dining table in sapele wood with mahogany accents seats twelve guests.

“The lounge on the upper deck of this tri-deck vessel offers a more informal atmosphere, with wonderful views to port, starboard and aft. The lounge amenities include a vista bar to port, a games table, a desk and chair, a 61 inch LCD flat screen television and comfortable television viewing area. There is easy access to the bridge deck aft for al fresco dining under the stars. Twin 3,650hp MTU engines give her a range of 5200 nautical miles at 12 knots.”
