A couple of months ago, sales brokers Steve Deane of Luke Brown Yachts and Ron Morgenstein of International Yacht Collection brought their co-listed Offshore 62 Many Waters to the Palm Beach International Boat Show.

They walked the docks, and they looked and looked everywhere, but they couldn’t find a single other boat whose helm station compared with their 62-footer’s.

“There wasn’t a megayacht in that show with an electronics package like the one on this boat,” Deane says. “It has triple redundancy, it has dynamic positioning — it has what you’ll see on a 150-foot Feadship as far as electronics. The owner is in that business, and he went crazy and put in a quarter-million-dollar system.”


To paint this yacht’s helm’s picture, electronics aboard Many Waters include a Garmin GPSMAP 8215 navigation system with three displays each at the pilothouse and flybridge helm stations, a Garmin radar with 4-foot open-array antenna, a Garmin GHP 20 autopilot and an “I Anchor” dynamic positioning system, which is a great onboard asset when you’re waiting for that bridge to open. On the communications, entertainment and safety side of the 62’s tech-gear equation, there’s an Icom DSC VHF/hailer radio, a Standard Horizon Explorer GX1700 VHF/hailer, a FLIR thermal-imaging system, a KVH HD7 satellite system, a KVH V7 satellite phone and Internet with VSAT (You can’t leave home without your favorite shows and the ability to update your Facebook status.), a Wave Wi-Fi booster, a Cisco 24-port network switch (to combine Wi-Fi, stereo, TVs and more), Ocean LED underwater camera and lights, a Gost multi-location alarm and security system, a Fusion entertainment system, a Digital Marine cellphone and antennae booster, Garmin Wi-Fi, weather/audio, depth sounder, AIS and remote displays, Maretron ultrasonic wind and weather instrumets, and a pair of Caterpillar engine gateway monitors.

The current owner built Many Waters in 2013. About three-quarters of the way through the build, Deane says, the owner changed his mind and decided he wanted a high-speed sport boat instead. That’s why Many Waters is for sale and has just 260 hours on her twin Caterpillar C12 engines. The asking price is $2.15 million.

“It’s a brand-new and fully warranted boat,” Deane says. “And he just bought a five-year extended warranty on those engines, and that goes to the next owner. Plus, this guy is the most fastidious, fussy owner I’ve ever met. That boat is in top condition. Look at the engine room: It’s like an operating room in a hospital.”
