The 157-foot (48m) Oceanfast luxury motor yacht BIG SKY is outfitted with an exceptional outdoor living area and a spacious interior that ensure she is ideal for entertaining on the water.

Built in 2010 and refitted in 2018, BIG SKY is in impeccable condition. In 2020, she received her 10-year Lloyds and Class Surveys. BIG SKY features Quantum zero speed stabilizers to ensure comfort while aboard. She features a shallow draft making her ideal for cruising in The Bahamas and other low-lying islands. BIG SKY has a solid charter history and offers a tested platform for future chartering if her new owner is so inclined.

BIG SKY's 2018 refit focused on her interior spaces. Her owner commissioned Alder & Tweed Design Co. to collaborate in crafting new built-in furnishings and loose furniture for the main deck and skylounge spaces. The guest accommodations also were refinished and rearranged to create an ideal layout for guest enjoyment. The yacht also benefitted from all new soft goods.

The main salon features large aft sliding glass doors that provide ample natural light and offer impressive views. This comfortable space is perfect for pre-dinner cocktails or evening movies and relaxation. This newly minted space features modern touches and a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. Forward is a formal dining area with custom artwork. The master stateroom is found forward on this deck with a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom with a deep sculptural tub. Additional guest accommodations aboard BIG SKY are found below deck. Three queen staterooms and one full stateroom with a Pullman welcome guests. Each is outfitted with en-suite facilities.

The yacht's skylounge features a full, custom wet bar and opens to the aft dining table that easily welcomes 12 for a meal. Paola Lenti furniture farther aft is perfect for cocktail hour or lounging during the day. This space can be rearranged to be utilized for a multitude of different functions. The main deck aft also features a cocktail area and accesses the yacht's swim platform, which is perfect for launching the water toys or taking a dip. BIG SKY's sundeck is a big draw, offering a Jacuzzi and large sun pads well suited for spending the day soaking up the rays. A full bar and a comfortable lounge also are found on this deck. As the sun sets, this area transforms into an alfresco cinema.

BIG SKY runs with 10 crewmembers who are accommodated in four cabins on the lower deck forward and a captain's cabin on the bridge deck.

Full Specifications

The new interior, completed in 2018, was a collaboration of the owner with Alder & Tweed Design Co. The refit included recladding, new built-in furniture and new loose furniture on the main deck and skylounge deck guest areas--both interior and exterior. On the lower deck, guest areas were refinished and rearranged for optimal space.  This redesign, plus the addition of all new soft goods throughout the vessel, delivers a spacious, easy-on-the-eye, tranquil ambience. 

Master Stateroom

On main deck forward, the master stateroom offers a centerline king bed with a nightstand on each side. A desk to one side is underneath large windows which, along with the full-width beam, supply copious light. On the other side is a chaise lounge. Facing the bed is a credenza with marble top and cabinets below, flanked on each side by closets.  The ensuite master bath offers a deep sculptural tub, shower, enclosed toilet and bidet, two sinks each with separate counter space and cabinets below. Heated towel racks are one of the fine details.   

Guest Staterooms

On lower deck aft, three guest staterooms each have a centerline queen bed with night stands on either side, a wide bureau with TV above. The fourth stateroom has a full bed with a Pullman opposite a desk with TV. The ensuite bathrooms to all staterooms have a large shower, toilet, sink with mirror and counter space as well as cabinets below.  There is a passthrough from guest area to crew area.

Main Deck Aft and Swim Platform

This area is set up as a cocktail area with table and chairs by Paola Lenti. Aft against the bulwark is a day bed area for lounging and observing activity on the swim platform and beyond. The swim platform is large and stable, perfect for a waterskiing step-start, diving, tender entry and exit, toy storage, and even as a day lounge close to the water.  

Main Saloon

From aft deck, glass doors slide to create a wide entry into the spacious, full-width saloon with large windows; natural daylight is plentiful.  Deep Minotti couches and comfortable chairs surround a cocktail table to create a large, casual space for conversation, reading, taking in a movie and relaxing.   

Dining Area

Forward of the main saloon, a modern dining table and chairs center the space. On the forward bulkhead a custom art piece by Alex Turco is a focal point. Cabinets offer plenty of storage for dishware, cutlery, and table accessories. On the starboard side, the guest hallway continues forward past a day head, on to the master stateroom.    


Navigation console with chart table on both sides. Raised observation settee and table. Starboard door leads to captain’s cabin with ensuite head.

Sky Lounge

From the bridge going aft, past a day head, is the sky lounge.  The L-shaped lounge area is well situated for relaxation and good conversation as well as TV viewing. Custom, full wet bar with counter-top of prized light onyx and retractable bottle shelving gives this room extra versatility. The bar also serves the skylounge deck, being just inside the skylounge doors. 

Skylounge Deck

At the center of attention is the wood dining table and chairs which easily accommodate 12 guests.  Stylish Paola Lenti furniture aft is arranged for cocktail and lounging purposes. It can be moved for other functions. Wide side decks lead to a guest area forward of the wheelhouse which offers a settee with built-in “double chaise lounge.” A perfect place to feel the breeze and sip a cocktail.


Forward is a Jacuzzi surrounded by full length lounging pads and a curved bar top with four bar stools for hot tub visiting. At the aft end of the deck comfortable lounging and conversation areas are set up. Paola Lenti furniture.  Midway is a full wet-bar with sink, refrigerator and icemaker; a server can stand behind the bar and keep a watchful eye on guests at each end of the yacht. A large screen, outdoor cinema is a special touch for those balmy starlit nights.
