OFFERED BY BAY ISLAND YACHTS: 1982 Sackett and Pendelbury 100' Motor Yacht,
El Zorro is a beautiful yacht with classic lines that has undergone an eight year restoration, just completed in 2015.
El Zorro was famous in fishing circles, owned by the legendary sport fisherman Jim Edmiston who had her re-built to navigate the globe in search of marlin. Built at a cost of approximately $2,500,000, which equates to over $6,500,000 today, she had a custom built ramp to hold a Bertram 31 sport fish. Jim was serious about fishing!
After his death, El Zorro languished in Trinidad for several years before being purchased by her current owners in January, 2006. Then began the 10 years of loving restoration, culminating in December, 2015. Not a novice in yacht restoration the owner had previously restored a dozen other boats. His expertise shows in the finished product, El Zorro as she is today, a true classic yacht with all the modern amenities you would expect.
The restoration included the installation of twin 825hp Iveco diesels with new gearboxes, a fuel polishing system, new fuel tanks totaling 15,000 gallons (range of 5,000nm), two 48kw NorPro generators, a twin prop 49hp SidePower bow thruster, Maxwell windlass and a 1,500gpd water maker. In addition a fly bridge was designed better comfort and visibility. Also included in the rebuild, the ship was totally re-wired and re-plumbed and all new electronics installed.
In all, El Zorro spent 10 1/2 years on the hard. After a painstaking inspection, in which no defects were found in the hull, she was sanded down and 4 layers of epoxy applied using 18 ounce bi-axle fiberglass. The bottom received 4 coats of Emron 385 plus 2 coats of HammerLock and finally 10 coats of anti-fouling paint.
The elegant interior is finished entirely in solid hardwoods (teak, ebony and juniper) no veneers are used. The craftsmanship is superb as evidenced by the photos. Inside you'll find an expansive master stateroom and 4 guest staterooms, each with access to heads and showers (2 staterooms and master ensuite) plus crew quarters on the bridgedeck and guest head and showers on the main deck aft of the salon, immediately adjacent to the entryway.
El Zorro is currently in a very successful charter program in Trinidad. She can be left in the program if desired, or perhaps moved to a new location and continue in charter. Of course she is also, with her extended range, a perfect yacht for traveling the oceans of the world. The choice is yours.
With her extended range (5,000nm), superb accommodations and separate crew quarters El Zorro would make an extraordinary expedition vessel.
