Overview

SOVEREIGN is a fantastic yacht that was built to rival the quality and capability of the Northern European pedigree shipyards. She was built by an experienced yachtsman who made sure the build included every opportunity to be successful by providing the finest supervision, engineering, designer, time and quality available. Time of build was of no concern and quality was number one priority. The owner spared no cost in getting the vessel perfect before putting her in operation.

Her second and present owner has been the perfect custodian offering SOVEREIGN the “state of the art” upgrades, annual surveys both maintenance and class, providing the vessel with whatever was needed. A listing of the upgrades are found further in the listing spec.

SOVEREIGN has the volume of a 60m plus vessel. Her 180’ (55m) length and 34’ (10.4m) beam give her the platform that measuring 1,100 gross tons further this volume offers SOVEREIGN with a floor plan of over 8,000 square feet (750 square meters) provides an exceptional living area that accommodates two master staterooms, an additional four guest staterooms below and room for 14 crew. The exceptional spaciousness is most notable in the panoramic skylounge where the vaulted ceiling reaches greater than 10' high.

Below deck there are four (4) guest staterooms, consisting of a VIP stateroom with king berth and his and her baths, a large guest stateroom with king berth and spacious head and two (2) twin staterooms, each with a full, twin and Pullman berth. From the below accommodations there is a service passageway through to the crew. The crew areas accommodations support up to fourteen crew members in seven cabins total.

When you enter the yacht’s main aft deck you will find a very large seating area with multiple tables and settees comfortably hosting any size group. Through the main aft doors and past the marbled foyer is an expansive main salon and separate dining area which conveniently resides next to the main deck pantry and ship’s galley. The forward part of this deck is home to one of the 2 master staterooms. In the middle of this deck you will find the large open stairwell next to the elevator which gives you two ways to access all other interior decks. The elevator goes from the tank deck where freezers and provision are found to the bridge where the second master and skylounge are found. 

The upper deck has a panoramic sky lounge area featuring greater than 10' of headroom at the center. The sky lounge salon is double the size of the main salon and serves as the primary social area of the yacht with incredible views, a large bar, a nearby service pantry and quick access to the upper aft deck. The upper aft deck has a large, circular alfresco dining table for elegant outdoor dining. Aft of the table are several large lounges and tables to relax outside in privacy, out of view from the dock.

Bilge and Fuel Transfer Pneumatic Valve System

All bilge valves are DC Electric/Pneumatic and can be controlled by any SiMon Station (when enabled).
All fuel transfer valves are DC Electric/Pneumatic and can be controlled by any SiMon Station (when enabled).

Fuel Service System

Bulkhead mounted fuel tank to gravity feed fuel to all machinery. Fuel is transferred from large aft tanks (with the added crossover valves opened, this equates to one large tank, accounting for half of the total capacity) to the gravity tank by the Alfa Laval (fuel purifier). The gravity tank overflows back to the large aft tanks, thus constantly keeping the gravity tank full to supply fuel to all machinery. This constant fuel exchange between tanks through the Alfa Laval makes the fuel very pure and clean. The Alfa Laval has a sump pump and tank which operates automatically to collect all sludge. There are another two (2) back up fuel pumps piped for the same purpose. The emergency generator, located on the sun deck, is also piped to the pumps and the Alfa Laval.
