161’/49.07m M/Y Three Forks sold by IYC
IYC is pleased to announce the sale of 161’/49.07m M/Y Three Forks by Mark Elliott, IYC Sales and Charter Consultant, who represented the buyer. This is now the second time that IYC has sold this beautiful yacht, with Mark also having handled her sale for her previous owner when she was named Match Point. Built by Christensen in 2009, as one of the yard’s popular 160 models, this beautiful composite semi-displacement yacht is an excellent example of pedigree American construction. Her exterior design is by the Christensen Yachts team and her interior is by Carol Williamson & Associates.
It is not hard to see why Three Forks was such an attractive buying prospect. Fresh from a high-end refit in 2018, she is in impeccable condition, fully-outfitted and ready for her new owners to begin enjoying her immediately. All main engines, generators and stabilizers were recently serviced, she is ABS classed and MCA compliant, and all class survey work is up to date. With elevator access to all decks and handicap-accessible she is easy for all to move around. Helicopter capability just adds to her accessibility, ensuring easy drop offs and departures.
Three Forks’ interior is luxuriously styled, featuring mahogany finishes throughout, with generous spaces throughout the vessel. Able to welcome up to 14 guests in six cabins, Three Forks carries 10 crew in five crew cabins. The full beam master cabin, which includes a private study and his and hers bathrooms with a solid marble Jacuzzi bath tub in the ‘hers’ bathroom, is a beautiful space that is located on the main deck. A full width VIP cabin and four additional staterooms, all ensuite, are located on the lower deck, accessed by the guest stairwell and elevator.
The main deck is home to the main saloon, with large windows that nearly run from floor to ceiling. This is a beautiful open plan space with seating, an entertainment system, and dining table for 12, leading forward to the entrance lobby and forward again to the master cabin. A modern and spacious galley is located near the main saloon for easy service. The main aft deck connects seamlessly with the main saloon, and is home to a banquette table with seating, a bar and entertainment system and provides easy swim platform access
A second large guest space is the sky lounge, accessed via the bridge deck foyer. Ideal for relaxing in, or enjoying more informal gatherings, the skylounge features a gaming table, L-shaped seating, a large television, and a sunk-in bar with seating for six to starboard. Forward of the skylounge is the bridge, which has guest seating and access to a popular Portugese Bridge space and foredeck sunbed. Aft of the skylounge is an alfresco dining area for 12, with other features including a wet bar, walk around access to the foredeck sunbed/Portugese lounge, and stair access up to the sun deck.
The sun deck is an outdoor hub for guest to enjoy on-water life. Protected by a hard top cover, its many amenities include a full service bar, BBQ, U-shaped dinette, large Jacuzzi with sunbeds, and a versatile deck space that can be used for chaise lounges or tender/helicopter storage.
Powered by twin MTU 12V4000 engines, Three Forks cruises at 14 knots, reaching maximum speeds of 17 knots. With ample storage she is able to carry a large inventory of water toys, equipment and tenders. The Christensen 160 models have enduringly proved themselves as highly popular charter choices, so she will be sure to widely appeal if her new owners ever decide to charter her.
IYC is proud to have played a role in the sale of Three Forks and wishes her new owners many happy years on the water. Three Forks will now be joining the IYC charter fleet where she will be sure to quickly prove a popular addition.
