General Details

A true gentleman's yacht for world cruising, GRACE was built in Holland in 2004. With a 5300 mi. range at 10.5 knots and 13 knots top speed, she is steel hulled and classed B.V. Ice III.

A beautifully finished, traditional interior with master suite on the main deck and four double guest staterooms. Formal dining salon, main deck salon and upper deck lounge and office. Crew quarters for 9.

Dutch commercial ship registration in compliance with merchant Navy rules for unlimited deep sea navigation. Owner has completed his five year cruise and is a serious seller.


        Commissioned in 2004 and newly built in Holland in the style of the early passenger vessels,the 48.35M (158’6”) Grace is a “gentleman’s yacht” in steel and aluminum. Her classic exterior lines, traditional deck detailing, solid teak decks and bronze railings, are skillfully combined with all the modern electronics, technical systems and safety equipment required for safe operation. As a commercial vessel under Dutch flag, Grace is thought to be first purpose built yacht to achieve classification for unlimited world commercial navigation by the Dutch Shipping Inspection and Bureau Veritas.         Careful attention has been accorded to the quality of the on board experience, including insulation, heating and air conditioning, floating floors, double glazing and a silent mooring and anchoring system, resulting in an exceptionally comfortable and first class experience.         Grace’s traditional paneling and period furniture throughout afford the luxury of a country house. Formal dining is available for up to 10 guests in the dining room or alternatively al fresco entertaining is offered on the aft deck, affording stunning panoramic viewing with removable windows. Further open air living, whether entertaining or sun bathing, can be provided for guests on the boat deck under a sun awning, or on the bridge deck furnished with traditional steamer chairs, Or simply enjoy the quiet life – unwinding in the library on the bridge deck.         Accommodation on board is provided for 10 guests in 5 cabins. The owner’s cabin with bathroom en suite is elegantly furnished with the same décor echoed throughout the remaining cabins; two double and two twin, all featuring shower rooms en suite. On the main deck, the spacious main saloon has large windows with low sills for excellent outside viewing while relaxing in comfort.         The ship is fitted with a system of ship’s batteries and inverters that enables totally silent mooring or anchoring at idyllic locations without disturbance. A certified sanitary treatment plant based on bacteriological activity and a bilge water cleaner with electronic controls prevent pollution of the environment.         Grace has Ice Class. Her strengthened hull, propellers and rudders allow certified operation through light to moderate ice.         With reference to the Specifications this is a description of some of the most important technical features of “Grace.” Some features are simply required because of her Commercial Ship (Merchant Navy) registration, some are installed for optimum comfort, ease of maintenance and reliability for world wide cruising.         REGISTRATION - Dutch Shipping inspection and Bureau Veritas have assured compliance with Merchant Navy rules. Dynamic Stability rules and International load line requirements as well as specifications for layout, materials, equipment and fireproofing are all much stricter than yacht standard.         GENERAL - All steel and aluminum constructions and fittings are built in Holland to the strictest quality standards. Ease of maintenance has been considered throughout. All pumps, valves, filters and other equipment are “commercial” grade, bronze and stainless steel and certified where necessary.         As part of its standard equipment “Grace” carries a complete set of medical equipment, stretchers etc. for world wide navigation (list A council directive 92/29EEC).         Documentation: All system descriptions and “as built” drawings are on board. Much attention has been given to ease of maintenance. The engine room is very spacious and all equipment is easily accessible. Most capping rails are painted, not varnished. The 2 component epoxy paint system is durable with egg shell gloss, that is easily repairable. All corners in bathrooms, galleys and laundry are rounded off for easy cleaning.
Hull and Super Structure
        The hull and the main deck super structures are built in certified Grade A shipbuilding steel.         All exterior welding (deck beams, bulwarks) as well as all frames are continuously welded (not chain or staggered) for added strength and corrosion prevention. All edges on deck and bulwarks have stainless trimming. The very fair hull plating, frames and additional ice-frames (frame spacing 25cm) comply with Ice Class III criteria. All steel (In - & Exterior construction, tanks etc.) have been fully sandblasted and were thoroughly conserved with a full Hempel epoxy paint system. Almost no filler has been used. The aluminum bridge deck is continuously welded on Triclad strips.         Ballast tanks of 20 M3 are incorporated in the double bottom, but prove to be unnecessary even in heavy weather in light ship conditions. Large bilge keels (16 M X 40 cm) dampen rolling movement sufficiently to ensure a comfortable ride, also at anchor without stabilizers.         Instead of zinc anodes to prevent underwater electrolytic corrosion, an active impressed current system by MME has been installed.         The cathodic protection is achieved by a micro-processor controlled transmission of current around the hull through two anodes in the aft part of hull. Two reference electrodes forward measure the correct operation of the system.
International Load Line Rules
        The strength of all doors and windows, the height of door sills, the number of door clamps, scupper pipes, drain openings all comply with strict commercial rules.         A double bottom with integral ballast tanks and tanks for drinking water, fuel and sludge runs the length of the ship and can be inspected through man holes.         There are 4 watertight bulkheads. Except for the aft peak watertight door, which serves as the engine room emergency exit and is normally closed at sea, there are no openings in these bulkheads.         There are no openable portholes in the hull and none at all in the engine room. All bronze portholes have steel blinds. All portholes and windows have double glazing. Except for 5 overboard valves in the engine room and 1 in the forepeak there are no openings anywhere in the hull.
Static, Dynamic and Damage Stability
        Commercial vessels have to comply not only with static stability tests but also with rather complex dynamic criteria to show sufficient stability in quite extreme conditions of waves and wind from the beam. Grace complies with these criteria in all loading conditions.         Fire retardant materials are used in the interior. All doors are steel marine fire resistant B15 and A60 doors. The interior walls are TNF self-supporting bulkheads (steel sandwiched high density rockwool) instead of wooden framing.         These walls are the covered with Fipro (fire-proof mineral particle) boards with traditional paneling in selected plane tree veneer.         Walls and ceilings are placed on floating floors for optimum sound insulation resulting in extremely quiet cabins.

Heating and Air Conditioning
        Because of careful insulation and ample capacity of her systems, Grace can be comfortably heated under arctic conditions by built-in radiators as well as warm air. Heating is by diesel oil fired boiler.         Cooling by a 4-compressor Marine Air chiller and 4 quiet Air Handling units (no fan coil units) has been well dimensioned. Warm water boxed in radiators are added for more comfortable, thermostat controlled heating and cooling.         The spacious engine room is certified for unmanned operation. There are bridge controls for starting and stopping engines and generators and for switching the electrical power supply. All important technical parameters are wired for alarm.         Double engine fuel and oil filters enable filter change with running engines. The oversized ZF 4.97:1 gear boxes are fitted with trolling valves for controlled slip of the propeller shafts for slow speed and delicate maneuvering.         The designer has opted for dry exhausts of generators and main engines with large sound dampers in sequence. “Grace” is very quiet and doesn’t suffer from the irritating fumes at waterline level nor from the danger of having seawater enter the engine or generator manifolds. Engine and generator cooling is through closed system heat exchangers in sea chests.         No mistakes can be made and not a drop of seawater can penetrate hull or machinery.
