Motor Yachts For Sale

139' Abeking & Rasmussen 1985 "NO BUOYS"


A superb display of European and American design and engineering, NO BUOYS was built by the renowned Abeking & Rasmussen shipyard of Germany and later completed a massive refit and hull extension by the finest American shipyard, Delta Marine in 2009, at reported over $12,000,000 with no expense spared on equipment and interior detail. The boat was almost never cruised from 2009 until the winter of 2015 and was delivered to her present owner in almost “as new” condition with only 180 original hours on her main engines

NO BUOYS offers 6 comfortable Owner’s and Guests Staterooms and a spacious forward crew area for 6.  

The yacht has excellent charter potential and the legendary Tom Fexas hull design is very fuel efficient and easily driven with a possible 5,500 mile range at 10 knots

Be sure to view NO BUOYS’s detailed VIRTUAL TOUR attached to this brochure.
