General Details

This is the finest example of a 68’ West Bay Sonship.  Her beautiful styling, exceptional performance, and enormous volume make her one of the most capable  mid-sized yachts on the market today.  Her 20’ beam provides superior accommodations equal to many larger models.  Her desirable layout provides a full width master suite, full width VIP stateroom, and a third double stateroom.  Aft of the engine room is a fourth stateroom or perfectly situated crew’s quarters.  She is powered by reliable 3412 E CATS providing a comfortable cruising speed in excess of 20 knots, and a maximum speed of 26.5 knots.  Her bow and stern thrusters, coupled with excellent visibility from the flybridge, pilothouse, and stern docking stations, makes maneuvering in tight quarters a breeze.  Wide safe side decks ease the task of line handling.  She’s one of the few motoryachts featuring a high end natural wood interior coupled with a rugged low maintenance exterior.


Accommodations Overview

Broker Comments
I've always been a big fan of West Bay Sonships.  I just sold a West Bay 78 which will be the fourth West Bay Sonship our firm has sold this year.  Quality sells, even in the toughest of times.  With an abundance of product on the market, there's no excuse for a buyer to not seek out a quality yacht.  This just listed 68 footer has had only one owner and captain since new.  She has been beautiuflly maintained, smartly outfitted, and continually updated.  I do not know of another vessel on the market today that provides more spacious accommodations or better performance under seventy feet.  She has been priced to sell!
