CABERNET was custom built to DNV Classification (Det Norske Veritas) by Sensation Yachts (Hull #26) in New Zealand and delivered in 2006. 

She sleeps 12 guests in 6 cabins including a private owner's deck on the upper level complete with private exterior deck that is only accessible from within the master cabin. Crew accommodations sleep 9 including a large captain's cabin located off of the wheelhouse.

CABERNET has both interior and exterior design by Evan K. Marshall with Naval Architecture by Phil Curran.

Twin "Clearance Tunnels" were moulded into the aft end of the hull allowing the running gear (Struts, Shafts, & Props) to be recessed into the hull giving her a maximum draft of 6'11" to allow her to comfortably cruise the Bahamas. 

Key features found onboard included private owner's deck, designated cinema room, commercial grade galley, high top speed of 25 knots, long range of 3,500nm at 12.5 knots, spacious garage area, and glass elevator that is not only functional but a focal point in her design.

She has extremely low hours for her age having gone relatively unused for years until her current owner purchased her back in 2016. She immediately underwent a multi-million dollar refit with both cosmetic & mechanical upgrades. 

Now back on the market CABERNET is looking for a new owner offering fantastic value considering her volume, condition, and features. 



Starting all the way back aft CABERNET has a spacious tender garage with larger door that opens upward. Highlights of the garage are a full work area for the engineer & crew, full size washer & dryers, full size refrigerator/freezer, davit in the overhead for launch/retrieval of tender if the owner choses to keep on in the garage (currently not by the owner). 

Direct access to the engine room. Excellent space for storage of water sports toys, supplies, provisions, etc

Moving forward up to the aft section of the main deck you will notice teak decks found throughout some of which need replacing like on the upper jacuzzi deck & bow areas. The aft deck has a massive sitting area that can easily seat up to 12+ for dining or tables can be separated for more casual gatherings. Full walk arounds to both port & starboard lead towards the bow and have entrances to the interior both for guests and crew.

Entering the main salon through sliding glass doors your eyes are immediately drawn to the center line glass elevator that services from the lower guest accommodations to the upper deck.

The salon itself has 2 large settees that run the length of the room below large glass windows. Forward of the seating area you reach the elevator and circular staircase. Forward to starboard you have a companionway that leads to a private lounge/cinema room with bar found to port. Just forward of that you have a large formal dining room and a commercial grade chef's galley. All the way forward is where you find the VIP cabin which is an en-suite.

Heading down to the guest area you have 4 additional cabins all en-suites and accessible either via the elevator or central staircase. 

Moving up a level you have the private owners deck which you can arrive to direct by elevator. The is a massive space with en-suite with jacuzzi soaker tub, shower, his & hers baths & walk in closets. The cabin itself has a center line king berth, sitting area, and direct access to a private exterior deck which is only accessible from the master cabin itself.

Forward on this upper deck you have the wheelhouse & captains cabin. If you continue to the bow area on the exterior you have a great use of space with massive sunpads, two sitting areas with umbrellas, and davit that launches/retrieves 2 jet skis all the way forward.

The center staircase leads you up to the sundeck that has a jacuzzi deck forward and sitting area back aft.            

Crew accommodations found on the lower level combined with the generous captain's cabin on the upper deck sleep up to 10 if you have 2 in the captain's cabin.
