Luxury Sailing Yacht for Sale |
27.84m (91ft 4in) | Brooklin Boat Yard | 2018 (2021)

INSTANT BOOKING
The 27.84m (91ft) Sonny III was constructed at thThe 27.84m (91ft) Sonny III was constructed at the Brooklin Boat Yard in Maine, USA.  Launched in 2018, she was built for an experienced owner and subsequently acquired by a well-known figurehead of the superyacht industry who had a new vision for her future. 

The initial concept was for Sonny III to be a high-performance cruiser, but the new owner envisioned a complete upgrade of all systems, to further refine her with a top-of-the-line racing package. The works spanned several months and were completed by the experts at Brooklin Boat Yard in late 2021, at a cost of over $2.5 million. In addition to adding significant racing elements, Sonny III received a full paint job and many other upgrades.

Boasting a new custom carbon rig and all new “cloth” from North Sails, Sonny III joined the racing fleet in St Barths for the 2022 Bucket. Her magnificent shear-line, varnished toe-rails and ventilator boxes, pristine teak decks and new sails drew many admiring looks from fellow race participants and spectators. As usual, she turns heads everywhere she goes. 

Sonny III’s interior provides an extremely comfortable living space.  The yacht is equipped with first-rate components for everything from the galley equipment to her fixtures and soft furnishings.  Her classic Herreshoff interior style is highlighted by white and cream paintwork, contrasted by beautiful American cherry joinery, leather upholstery, and a teak and maple cabin sole.

This sailing yacht has accommodations for eight guests in four cabins.  There are three guest suites forward of the main salon, and access to the full-beam master stateroom is either through the portside passageway, through the galley, or via a direct entryway from the helm cockpit on the aft deck. 

The open-plan saloon features a large elliptical dining table with a curved bank of seating, a built-in settee along the port side, a state-of-the-art navigation station, and a large, functional galley to starboard.

On deck, Sonny III’s twin cockpit configuration provides safe seating for guests amidships, while all sail handling is controlled from the aft helm. 

The foredeck area is carefully laid out with flush deck hatches and stainless dorades for proper cabin ventilation.  There is a sail locker in the bow, windlass winch, dual anchor rollers, and a removable pulpit for proper sail management when racing.

Sonny III has a hydraulic fold-down swim platform for access to the water, and a full-beam lazarette that’s been outfitted with custom shelving to assist with organisation of her loose equipment, parts, and cleaning supplies.   

This sailing yacht promises the best of both worlds, fit-out for racing but with the ability to serve as a wonderful weekend cruiser for family adventures.  Sonny III cruises with effortless capability, and the gears easily change-up into racing mode when desired. 

Sonny III is available with through a well-known “lease with purchase option” process, essentially providing interest-free financing for a portion of the funds.
