151 Palmer Johnson "Dione Sky" for Sale (ex Turmoil, ex Putty V)
The exceptional Expedition Yacht Dione Sky was built by Palmer Johnson in 1996 and has proved her worth
having voyaged almost 200,000 trouble free miles including the honour of being the first motor yacht
to circumnavigate the North American Continent, unaided, with a successful transit of the North West
Passage from East to West in 2001 with her first owner, and at least as far again with her present owner
who has done a figure of eight passage around all the Americas north and south.
VI/Dione Sky has always been maintained to the highest standard and is in turn key condition. The
vessel is of excellent construction and engineering and is known to be extremely quiet and vibration
free. In 2007 she received a major overhaul/rebuild, by Vripack Yachting in The Netherlands, to ensure safe and trouble free
cruising for the years to come and her present owner has had the yacht in Derecktors Ship yards in
Connecticut and Florida for upgrades and service 2010 and 2013. The 2013 work included a major overhaul to the Caterpillar main engines bringing them to "zero time" specifications. ABS and MCA Classed.
Completed Cayman Islands and ABS annual surveys March 2014.
