VENDETTA is a 17.5m (57.4ft) motor yacht delivered in 2005 by the American builder, Derecktor Shipyard. This classic style yacht has the character of a 1920s commuter yacht with modern technology and amenities. Designed by the naval architect Doug Zurn, this one-of-a-kind yacht was refitted in 2019 and presents in immaculate condition.
VENDETTA was originally built as a luxury commuter yacht for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame musician Billy Joel. She was designed to be the fastest Long Island Sound commuter yacht, with the range and stability of a much larger yacht. Now owned by an experienced yachtsman, she has been upgraded and maintained to the highest degree.
With ample interior space, VENDETTA provides the perfect platform for entertaining up to 12 guests for a day on the water. Her elegant interior features a bright and open dining and lounging area finished with high gloss mahogany cabinetry and new teak flooring. Forward of the saloon is a bathroom with shower.
The semi-enclosed cockpit is surrounded by windows, giving an outdoor feel while providing protection from the natural elements. During the 2019 refit, the aft deck was redesigned with entertaining in mind, including wrap around seating finished in Italian leather and a retractable awning for custom sun protection.
Powered by twin MAN 1,300hp engines, VENDETTA can reach a maximum speed of 45 knots and a cruising speed of 35 knots. Her hybrid Kevlar hull glides across the water and provides ultimate stability while producing an exhilarating performance.
