BROKER REPORT: "HARBOUR ISLAND" 180' NEWCASTLE SHIPYARD
INSPECTED IN FORT LAUDERDALE

HARBOUR ISLAND
Type: Expedition Yacht Builder: Newcastle Shipyard
Length: 180' (54.9m) Built: Mfg-2011
Location: Florida, USAPrice: 54,900,000 USD
 
During the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show I inspected HARBOUR ISLAND, the new 180/54.9m from Newcastle Shipyard based in Palm Coast, Florida. I also inspected their shipyard two weeks ago. It was refreshing to see a first class large yacht coming out of an American yard.

HARBOUR ISLAND was very well done both technically and cosmetically. She is a very big volume yacht with many clever design features. HARBOUR ISLAND should make a popular charter yacht. I particularly liked the twin master staterooms; the infinity pool and big beach/garage.

Main Salon


Although the yacht took almost 6 years to build you need to take into account that some major changes were incorporated mid build (raising the head room on the main deck; extending 16 among many others). With HARBOUR ISLAND, Newcastle has proven again that they are capable of producing a high quality yacht.

Main Salon 2


During my visit to the Newcastle Shipyard I saw 3 yachts under construction: a 125 Expedition Yacht; a 149 Expedition yacht with some pretty interesting features (Master behind the bridge; wood burning fire place and heli deck) and they were just starting a 177 Expedition Yacht.

Although Newcastle has had some growing pains they have recently completed a yard expansion that approximately triples their capacity. The new sheds are world class, as are the new offices.

If you are interested in finding out more about HARBOUR ISLAND and other yachts in this market such as APRIL FOOL, CARPE DIEM, BARAKA, EXCELLENCE III, TURQUOISE or PRIMA give us a call to get an informed perspective.
