Miami18: MY Endless Summer gets second looks

By Lucy Chabot Reed

The 130-foot (40m) Westport M/Y Endless Summer has been getting second looks on the docks at the Miami Yacht Show.

Though it bears the same name as the now-notorious Feadship where a young stew was raped by an intoxicated co-worker three years ago, this Endless Summer is smaller and of a different builder.

Capt. Scott Sanders

“People have said ‘I hate to ask, but …’ and I have to tell them it is not,” Capt. Scott Sanders said during the show. “This vessel was in Greece for nine and a half years, chartering under a Greek flag. This was not the vessel involved in that unfortunate incident.”

On Jan. 30, a South Florida jury ruled that the owner of the other Endless Summer, Island Girl Ltd., was negligent in the incident, and it was ordered to pay the stew $70 million.

Naturally, that got people talking, and wondering if this Endless Summer on display at the boat show is the same vessel. It is not. This vessel left the United States for Greece in August 2008 and returned in October for service and repairs in preparation for its sale. If it doesn’t sell, it already has several weeks of charters booked back in Greece and will return there. The central agency is Athens Yachts in Greece.

This Endless Summer — listed with Merle Wood and Associates for just under $8 million — does have one bit of history worth noting: Built in 2003, it is Hull No. 1 in the famous Westport 130 line.
