‘Pacific Provider’ for sale; global adventure awaits in this superb Explorer vessel
‘Pacific Provider’ is ready and waiting for her next global expedition. With a vast 12,000 mile range, steel hull, 7000 gallon-per-day water-maker and 35ft wide beam ensuring safety and sailing comfort, this explorer class vessel is ideally suited to satisfy the needs of the most adventurous travellers.
Built by Blount Marine, ‘Pacific Provider’ was generously refitted in 2015 and transformed into a luxury yacht beautifully equipped for global cruising. Featuring naval architecture by Rolls Royce, and ABS classifications, additions to the existing superstructure include new guest staterooms, crew quarters, bar areas (indoor & outdoor), sun deck and a huge galley.
This vessel is offered for sale at $3.85 million which represents exceptional value for money, particularly when considering the large floor space, quality of the refit and opportunity for multi-use chartering.
Explorer vessels have the capacity to draw intrigue and interest, whereas comparable super yachts may seem inaccessible and aloof. ‘Pacific Provider’ oozes old-world charm with warm and comfy colonial interiors granting a subtle nod to classic high-sea adventurers such as Jacques Cousteau.
Maritime environmental concern has never been more acute, and the opportunity to conduct Oceanography research aboard is tremendous. Whether it be collecting data or collecting plastic, the ‘Pacific Provider’ could be of significant and tangible benefit toward ocean conservation.
Adventure tourism also has the capacity to educate visitors, and to highlight and promote the most pressing environmental and social needs. This vessel could equally be used to deliver humanitarian aid (which additionally offers a tax-break on fuel), such as the acclaimed work of MY Dragonfly in the wake of the devastation of Cyclone Pam in Vanuatu, 2015.
With a whopping 91,000 gallon fuel capacity, ‘Pacific Provider’ can sail further than similar sized boats and is sufficiently self-contained to remain at anchor for extended periods of time.
Destinations and itineraries are only really limited by your imagination; even the most inaccessible atolls and island chains are well within reach.
Perhaps an unforgettable North-to-South Pacific crossing? Make your start in wild and untamed Alaska, with wildlife aplenty and unparalleled views to be glimpsed in Kenai Fjords National Park. Sail on toward the Sea of Cortez, stopping off at the El Vizcaíno Biosphere Reserve at the center of the Baja California Peninsula.
Finally, follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin and experience the untouched beauty and immense bio-diversity of the Galapagos islands. With your appetite for adventure growing stronger each day, why not just keep going!? The ‘Pacific Provider’ provides ample opportunity to complete a World Circumnavigation in style and comfort.
