Price reduced!!! This like-new 82' Fantasy Coastal Yacht 2008 will change the way you think about houseboats. Knot Tied Down was designed and built to safely and reliably cruise in salt water and her deep V flared bow and increased freeboard will ensure safe and comfortable passages in Coastal waters. Her fully marinized, commercial grade aluminum hull, twin Yanmar 315hp Diesel Engines, SidePower Bow and Stern Thrusters, and upper and lower dual helms, each equipped with redundant displays and controls for the fully integrated Raymarine G-21 Electronics Systems, including remote Color Video Cameras, GPS/Chartplotters, Radar, Satellite Weather, Autopilot, VHF Radios with DSC capability, and Depth Sounders.

This is a very fuel-efficient vessel that burns approximately 8-10 gallons per hour at cruise speed, so compare this with most other 45' to 85' plus Motor Yachts that typically burn between 30gal. to 60gal. per hour.

The spacious Flybridge has an entertainment center/wet bar with Drop-down TV, JennAir BBQ Grill, Icemaker, Refrigerator, plenty of seating under the upgraded, custom reinforced hardtop that is rated as a Helicopter Landing Pad. The upper observation/flight deck is easily accessible via a spiral staircase/ladder and provides plenty of extra space for stargazing, sunbathing or an extra 50 party guests and is surrounded with a 36” anodized aluminum rail.

Step inside through the commercial grade aluminum framed glass doors, and you can't help but notice the fit and finish of a luxurious home with solid cherry hardwood cabinetry and flooring, custom-made furniture, solid wood window blinds and shadow boxes, tray ceilings, upgraded paddle fans, recessed LED lighting, several HDTV TVs including a complete entertainment center in salon, stainless steel Whirlpool and GE kitchen appliances, solid granite countertops and oversize granite dining table, interior stairwell to flybridge, 3 Staterooms, 2 baths with ceramic tiled showers, plus office/storage/workroom/extra cuddy berth, washer/dryer, and a complete lower helm that retracts under the salon floor with a push of a button. Seller is encouraging offers so if you are looking for a coastal cruiser, consider Knot Tied Down as your next luxury yacht. And don't hesitate to compare this yacht with a traditional motor yacht because at Half The Price, with Twice The Square Footage and living space on 3 levels, you'll only burn approximately 15% of the fuel per hour that a typical 45'-85' plus MY will burn. And, did I mention you’ll experience significantly reduced maintenance as a result of the high quality of construction, easy-to-access mechanical areas, and top-of-the-line internal systems and equipment! Call today to schedule a personal inspection. It will change the way you think about yachting.

Deck and Hull

This 82' Fantasy Coastal Yacht 2008 was designed and built to be cruised in a coastal saltwater environment; unlike most other brands and models of houseboats. "Knot Tied Down" is marinized from the keel up, with a 3/16" thick Aluminum V-Hull, 1/4" Aluminum Hull plating, 5/16" thick Prop Tunnels, 6" Additional Deeper Hull giving it a sea-going draft of 53" but still shallow enough to navigate through the Bahamas and Florida Keys, and a hull construction pattern of 16" On-Center Grid of Structural Ribs, providing commercial-ship quality strength and rigidity. All rails were anodized as an upgrade and 36" anodized aluminum rails were added as an upgrade on the upper deck. The Superstructure walls have upgraded insulation and are 9" Taller than standard, increasing ceilings to 96" heights, and insulated windows have been factory upgraded to ensure maximum energy conservation in all weather conditions; making Knot Tied Down ideally suited for cruising up and down the coast and spending time in any climate you choose to cruise; winters or summers.

The 22' Beam allows for wide side decks so you and your crew can walk all around the exterior of this yacht for line handling and convenience. Four additional Cleats were added to the standard ten cleats, providing plenty of options when docking. The Flybridge roof is upgraded structurally so it is rated as a Heliport and only needs the aft rails to be hinged or removable to serve this function. Additionally, the upper deck (heliport), increases the useable entertainment space so it is easily accessible via a sturdy spiral staircase with high rails from the aft deck of the Flybridge level. Access to the Flybridge level is thoughtfully designed with a staircase aft leading to the Cockpit and another internal staircase with a sturdy and weatherproof aluminum-framed glass door conveniently leading down to the Galley.

Four heavy-duty boarding gates are located on each side of the foredeck and the cockpit, providing options for docking positions and the interior can be entered from the cockpit or foredeck. The foredeck storage lockers that double as seats and floor are covered in FlexTeak, and there is a large hatch with a gas shock in the floor providing access to a storage area below, and the cockpit floor with three large hatches providing access to the engine room, is covered in FlexTeak for easy maintenance and long-lasting durability. There are two cabinets with shelving in the cockpit ideally suited for storage of cleaning supplies, deck brushes, and other engine maintenance supplies. The hydraulic FlexTeak covered swim/dinghy/water toy platform is an upgrade.

The Flybridge deck is attractively carpeted and a Pressure Washer system with 3 outlets makes it easy to wash down and clean the exterior carpets and high-gloss exterior. Built-in seating with Sunbrella covers around the Flybridge Helm allows your guests and crew to gather around the helm when underway. Attractive moveable deck furniture adorns the aft deck, and the center of focus on this level is the granite counter topped entertainment center with JennAir BBQ Grill, Icemaker, Refrigerator, LCD retractable HDTV, and Wet Bar area. This area and the Heliport Deck will provide you and your guests with an incomparable panoramic view of your surroundings and will be sure to be the gathering place of choice at sunset or cocktail hour. The flybridge deck is pre-wired for a 220V hot tub.
