Kindness to the World
Sales broker Dana Cambon at Luke Brown Yachts has been excited about the 95-foot Inace_ Kindness to the World_ for the better part of a decade. He negotiated the original owner’s deal with the Brazilian shipyard in 2003, was with the project through the launch in 2005 and has watched her cruise around the globe not only with that original owner, but also with the current one.
“The first owner, sadly, the boat came on her own bottom from Brazil to Fort Lauderdale nonstop, and he took that trip and did a little bit of cruising, and then his wife passed away and he decided to sell,” Cambon says. “Another gentleman bought the boat and took her to Europe, out into the Pacific, really got out there, and now his agenda has changed and he’s looking to sell the boat.”
Kindness to the World was specifically built for that type of long-range cruising. She has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, plus a fuel capacity of 16,000 gallons that gives her a range of 5,000 nautical miles.
“She’s got the legs to go anywhere in the world,” he says. “She’s got in-line six-cylinder [1,920-horsepower] Caterpillars that are very fuel efficient.”
Also appealing for go-anywhere yachtsmen is the helipad the current owner installed to make use of his Robinson R44 helicopter, which has traveled with the yacht for a number of years.
The one thing Kindness to the World hasn’t needed is a large crew: She has both bow and stern thrusters, which make her easy for three capable people to run.
Cambon acknowledges that the current asking price of $2.9 million reflects the yacht’s readiness for another refit, to augment the general updates made by the current owner in Europe about three years ago. The woodwork is in pretty good shape, he says, but things like fabrics could use a refresh. “It’s not like the boat needs to be gutted or anything,” he says. “It’s got everything it needs to get out there and get serious.”
