Yacht Description

"Midnight Contessa" is a 1987 Cheoy Lee 83' Motoryacht that has been with the same family for decades.  She has six cabins and six heads, a spacious salon with a dining area, and a large fly-bridge for outside entertaining.

Powered by twin 870HP Detroit Diesel engines, she will cruise in the teens and hit over twenty knots at full throttle.

Both engines are reportedly rebuilt and running well.  Both the generators have been replaced.

Forward past two separate engines rooms, are guest staterooms to port & starboard, one with a double berth. the other with two singles. Both have their own heads.

Continuing forward past the washer dryers, generators & workshop, there are steps up to two further staterooms / crew cabins. Also with another head.

Back on the main deck, forward from the salon is a galley with a day head to the port side. Forward of the galley is a pilot house with full controls.

The interior is crafted in ash wood throughout.
