The owner of the latest Buccaneer yacht had been secretly traveling to South America behind his wife Sylvia’s back. All was revealed on Valentine’s Day when he brought her to Miami to see a brand new 95-foot motor yacht. On the transom was painted "Sylvia’s Surprise."
The well-received gift had just arrived in the States for the Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show, traveling on her own bottom from the Inace shipyard in Brazil. She reportedly made the 3,200-nm journey with ease, her exceptionally high freeboard, steel-and-aluminum construction and stable full-displacement hullform demonstrating excellent seakeeping qualities. She is the young company’s second build and current flagship.
Sylvia’s Surprise also marks the beginning of a new era for the owner couple as they gracefully make the transition from sailing to power cruising. Their sailors’ taste and mentality can be seen in the clean interior design that features a traditional teak-and-holly sole, rounded corners throughout and conveniently placed handholds for maneuvering in rough weather.
The five-stateroom yacht boasts the interior volume of a much larger vessel. The tri-deck design, with a beam of 23-and-a-half feet, affords space for an on-deck, full-beam master suite; four guest cabins belowdecks, including two king-bed staterooms; and a skylounge behind the upper deck’s wheelhouse – which is large enough to host both navigators and spectators. In addition, the vast top deck is able to accommodate at least 25 seated guests around the wet bar, barbecue and sun-splashed aft dining/cocktail tables.
Luxurious amenities and detailing go hand-in-hand with the yacht’s rugged seaworthiness. Warm mahogany and liberal use of granite is featured throughout, enhanced by exquisite inlays. The master suite includes his-and-hers baths and cedar-lined closets. The skylounge’s centerpiece is a 50-inch plasma high-definition TV.
Built to ABS standards, Sylvia’s Surprise features user-friendly systems that were selected for their serviceability. The well-conceived, high-headroom engine room is where Buccaneer CEO Janusz Leczynski showed his extensive engineering background. Twin Caterpillar 3406C engines, rated at 440 horsepower apiece, provide a 4,000-nm range. Top speed is 12 knots.
