New to market! Truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a spectacular passagemaker. This Steve Seaton designed yacht was built with complete disregard to costs (over $5,000,000 spent in construction costs). The result is superyacht quality and equipment in a fifty five foot boat that is easily manageable by a couple. This special yacht offers safety at sea with full array of redundancies, as well as luxurious live aboard accommodations. At the time of her launch, as Que Linda, she was the smallest yacht ever featured by Showboats magazine and probably the most expensive fifty-five foot yacht ever built. The very experienced builders commissioned famed megayacht and passagemaker builder Northern Marine of Anacortes, Washington to build the fiberglass hull and superstructure along with much of the equipment. The yacht was completed at the well respected Vic Frank yard in Seattle. Much larger than other Northern Marines of this size range, this vessel was built based on the Northern Marine 64 mold. The interior was built by Belina Interiors of Seattle (the company that builds Delta interiors). After launch, she was immediately cruised south and through the Panama Canal. After Caribbean cruising and an adventure up the east coast to Nova Scotia, she joined the NAR (north Atlantic Rally) of 2004 and crossed the Atlantic Ocean on her own bottom. Eventually, she returned to the Pacific Northwest where she was purchased by her present owners who have primarily spent winters aboard on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. She is now moored in San Diego to expedite a sale.
M/V Solemates is Canadian flagged but is a US built vessel and will flag easily to for all client nationalities. This is a carefully thought out design, magnificently constructed, fully pedigreed and now ready for her next owners' passagemaking adventures. She is in ready-to-go condition and is a rare and unique offering.

The incredibly thick hand-laid fiberglass hull has a full keel with a bulbous bow (making the LWL the same as the LOA) and a canoe stern which makes cruising very safe and comfortable in following seas. The keel is ballasted with twelve thousand pounds of lead and the bulb has a water ballast tank as well as a water tight crash bulkhead. The keel is protected by a one inch steel shoe that extends from the bow all the way back to the rudder skeg which protects the running gear. She is stabilized by oversized Naiad stabilizers and has an articulating rudder that greatly increases maneuverability and negates the need for a stern thruster. For safety, the hull is divided into sections by four water-tight bulkheads. The hull has molded rub rails with stainless steel caps. The Portuguese bridge offers seating, generous storage, and water deflection.
The vessel was built at the Northern Marine yard in Anacortes, Washington and completion was performed at the Vic Frank yard in Seattle.
