Delta Marine, Caterpillar Financial Services Corporation (Cat Financial) and Rick Obey of Marine Consulting in New York have sold superyacht Project Monarch. Construction of this 151-foot motor yacht began at Northern Marine in Anacortes and was completed at Delta’s yard in Seattle.
With exterior styling and interior design by Jonathan Quinn Barnett, this 151-foot semi-displacement motor yacht has an impressive 30’ 9” beam and offers a balance of elegance and strength, form and function, performance, range and comfort. The flared hull design has a hard chine to deflect spray and a high sheer line that captures a full beam arrangement forward of amidships. Her bulbous bow increases efficiency. Powered by twin Cat 3512 B series engines, she can reach speeds of up to 21 knots, with a range of 3,000 nautical miles at 12 knots. The yacht is ABS and MCA certified, under 500 gross tons and wheelchair navigable, with extra wide doors, spacious walkways and a centrally located elevator providing convenient access to all four decks.
Monarch was offered at $ 31,900,000. She is now back at Delta for a few minor changes and additions for the new owners just in time for the summer cruising season.
