Luxury 54m Motoryacht Visits Cork City Marina

5th September 2013
Luxury 54m Motoryacht Visits Cork City Marina

#Motoryacht - Luxury motoryacht M.Y. Fortunate Sun which has luxurious accommodation for 10 guests and 12 crew docked at the Port of Cork's City Marina yesterday, writes Jehan Ashmore.

As previously reported, the 851 gross tonnes vessel on a call to Dublin Port in 2011 became the largest vessel to transit through the Samuel Beckett swing-bridge. On her visit to Cork, the vessel is moored along the pontoon off South Custom House Quay.

She is registered in the Caymen Islands and the charter vessel  has a steel 54m long hull on a beam of 10.60m.  The streamlined aluminium superstructure and also interiors are the work of Tim Heywood Design.

The decade old vessel completed by Oceanfast of Australia is powered by 2x 1737kW MTU 12V 4000M70 diesel engines. This delivers a flat-out speed of 17.3 knots and a range of 5,000 nautical miles.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
