“Meet "Columbus," formerly known as "Life of Riley," a yacht with an intriguing journey and a world of possibilities. In July 2021, this vessel found a new home in the capable hands of a seasoned New Zealand Yachtsman. Embarking on an adventurous transformation, the owner introduced essential enhancements, meticulously provisioned the ship, bid farewell from San Diego, and set sail across more than 7,500 Nautical Miles to reach her new haven in New Zealand.

Over the course of the following year, the owner dedicated an astonishing one million dollars to a multitude of upgrades and improvements, which are meticulously outlined in various sections of this listing's narrative. As you peruse the comprehensive array of photographs in this listing, you'll witness the extensive collection of tenders and water toys, along with numerous enhancements to the outdoor spaces of "Columbus," including the Boat Deck and the luxurious aft "Beach Club."

Notably, "Columbus" underwent a significant refit first at the DELTA Shipyard in Seattle and then at the DELTA yard in Sidney, British Columbia. The vessel also received tender loving care at the CRESCENT Shipyard in Vancouver, BC, where she was originally constructed.

Intriguingly, the seller is open to a unique financial arrangement that presents an exceptional opportunity for the new owner. This arrangement allows you to partake in the journey of a lifetime, joining forces with "Columbus" to return her to North America. It's a rare chance for the new owner, captain, and crew to familiarize themselves with the vessel while enjoying the enchanting South Pacific, complete with its myriad islands and captivating ports of call. Picture yourself setting course for destinations like BORA BORA, The Cook Islands, Fiji, Samoa, The Solomon Islands, Palau, Vanuatu, Australia, The Great Barrier Reef, New Caledonia, Easter Island, and The Hawaiian Islands along the way. The adventure begins here, and "Columbus" is your passport to a world of exploration and delight.
