1996 Westport/Crescent Motoryacht
Rarely does a yacht that has had this level of updating become available for sale. "Sans Souci" was originally constructed at Westport Shipyard; the hull then was transferred over to Crescent Yachts for completion as “Crescent Lady”. In recent years the yacht has undergone a complete re-power with 1900hp Cats, hull paint, interior; basically she has been rebuilt from the ground up. The hull is a wide 25’ beam with walk-around decks. The fall 2015 haul-out included new bottom paint, descaling of salt water lines, and both propellers were trued and dynamically balanced.
Far too many upgrades to list. "Sans Souci" must be seen to be truly appreciated!
“Sans Souci” has recently gone through a series of refits that has brought her up to new yacht standards. The most impressive upgrade consists of the installation of two new Caterpillar C-32 Acert 1900hp diesel engines. The CAT engines were installed in 2010, however with only 1055 hours of run time, these engines are in "like new" condition. The CAT's are currently under warranty, which may be extended through July 1, 2020. "Sans Souci's" entire exterior superstructure above the waterline was painted with Awlgrip in Sept. 2014. During the last haul-out in September 2015, the bottom was sanded and painted and both propellers were trued and dynamically balanced. The two, 50kW Northern Lights generators are equipped with John Deere blocks. Both generators were overhauled in 2015, which included the installation of new head gaskets, injectors and pressure testing of heat exchangers.
Additional upgrades include:
- New Kobelt electrical controls on hydraulic steering system installed (2013)
- Complete restoration of air conditioning ducting and chiller lines (2013)
- (2) New Elliott 6-Man life rafts installed (Aug. 2014)
- New make-up air handler installed (Oct. 2015)
- New compressor/chiller installed (Nov. 2015)
- New salon bar refrigerator installed (Nov. 2015)
- (2) New clear acrylic see-through tops installed on sea chests (Mar. 2016)
- (2) New emergency back-up batteries installed (June 2016)
- New windshield cover installed (July 2016)
- (2) New uninterrupted power supplies (UPS) installed on wheelhouse (April 2016)
Even more upgrades include: (6) Multi-function flat view screens in wheelhouse, new anchor chain, galley appliances and many, many more. The list of upgrades is simply too long to list. "Sans Souci" really must be seen to appreciate her pristine condition. "Sans Souci" boasts a 25' beam with a full exterior walk-around, which makes her unique in the 115' yacht category.
The covered aft deck has two inlaid wood tables with teak chairs combined with bench-style seating that comfortably allows ample room for eight, and is perfect for al-fresco dining.

AC Distribution Panel
Panel is located in vessel's electrical room. It contains the main breakers for all AC sources as well as the main loads. It is designed as a balanced split bus system allowing the use of any two sources simultaneously. As such the panel is fully interlocked to prevent any possible concurrent supply to the same bus. The main source protective breakers are a combination of instantaneous as well as inverse time trip breakers. All meters are digital to indicate the voltage and current within each leg and frequency of each bus.
The yacht is also equipped with a Maretron electrical monitoring system that utilizes NK2 view display software. The NK2 view is displayed in the control room, main wheelhouse and flybridge. The Maretron system displays individual panel voltage, current, frequency and kilowatt use.
DC Distribution Panel
The main DC panel is located in the vessels electrical room. Within the panels are the DC main switches, fuses and digital metering.

Soundproof and Vibration Reduction: The engine room is isolated from the remainder of the vessel by four inches of soundproofing material manufactured by Peace and Quiet insulation; as well as a layer of lead sheeting. The generators are low RPM (low noise) units, which are mounted on hydro-elastic mounts to reduce vibration while in operation. Both generators are also equipped with sound shields, resulting in a very quiet engine room at dock or anchor. All pumps have isolation mounts for quiet operation. Each underwater exhaust is directed through a 16" diameter Hetron fiberglass pipe equipped with a 10" diameter by-pass.
The exhaust bypass is routed through a silencer prior to exhausting out the transom while at idle speed. Metal piping that exits the engine room into the vessels accommodation areas have vibration breaks to prohibit sound from being telegraphed through the pipes.

Engine Room Ventilation: Air provided for the engine room through two 7,500 CFM tube axial fans located at the aft most corners of the engine room. Air is piped into the engine room from the vessels flybridge deck through heavily insulated columns housing the fans, thus providing dryer air and less salt into the engine room
Interior ventilation: Fresh air is provided to the vessels accommodations by Dometic AT36HVZ-2x1.5kW air handler. Heads are equipped with evacuation fan.
Safety & Fire Protection
The vessel has two separate fire-fighting systems. The primary system consists of (2) Flo Max pumps. One pump is powered electrically and the other hydraulically. Either pump can operate independently as a bilge pump or as a fire- fighting system through (2) three-way PVC ball valves. There are two firefighting stations; one inside the vessel and one located in the port forward locker. The second system is the Halon emergency fire suppression bottle, located in the engine room. The fire-fighting pipes are schedule 40 stainless steel. There are six bilge pump vacuum ports located throughout the vessel, which lead to a header and valve assembly next to the pumps.
