The 61-foot (18.59m) DESTINATION is a beautifully crafted Wilbur downeast styled motor yacht with long-range capabilities and a desirable flybridge. The legendary Ray Hunt designed the yacht’s timeless profile. The motor yacht has been professionally cared for and has received numerous upgrades over the years to ensure her exquisite condition.

The luxury motor yacht offers accommodations for up to six guests in the comfort of three well-appointed staterooms. The master stateroom has a separate aft deck entrance for added privacy. The stateroom showcases a centerline king bed, a desk and an abundance of storage. There is also a walk-in closet and head. The additional staterooms aboard DESTINATION include a double-bed and a bunked stateroom with over-under berths well as two heads. Additionally, the bunked stateroom can be used as a crew stateroom.

DESTINATION’s main salon is warm and inviting, creating a desirable space for unwinding and socializing. The space features an L-shaped settee with a custom table providing dining for six and opposite is a built-in dinette as well as ample storage. The main salon also has a flat-screen TV with a sound system. Forward of the main salon, to starboard is the helm, which is outfitted with electronics and navigation suitable for traveling long distances. The helm has great visibility and a side door with direct access to the deck. On the opposite of the helm is a well-equipped galley with granite countertops.

The deck spaces aboard DESTINATION allows for easy movement around the yacht, thanks to wide teak decks and very safe and tall stanchions. The foredeck is a desirable place to watch the sunset while at anchor with its beautiful, varnished seating area and endless views. The motor yacht has an exceptional flybridge that has a canvas Bimini and isinglass at the helm. The flybridge has a comfortable helm chair as well as two companion chairs. There is also an L-shaped settee with a custom table for enjoying alfresco meals, an icebox and a grill.

Owner's Stateroom

Situated aft, the owner’s stateroom has a separate aft deck entrance for privacy as well as an interior entrance to port. The KING berth is installed on the centerline with abundant storage spaces.  To starboard is a bookshelf and cabinet, and forward a desk with reading lamp. Under the sole on port is additional storage. Forward of the stateroom on starboard is the upgraded head which includes a separate shower. Forward of the stateroom on port is a walk-in closet!. This master suite was upgraded with fastidious attention to joinery and detail. The cabin sole is solid teak and holly with the entire cabin finished in beautiful satin-varnished teak.

Main Salon

Entering from the tender deck, a set of teak stairs bring you down into the well appointed main salon.

A luxurious settee with plush custom cushions occupies the starboard side of the salon. A custom table provides ample dining space for six. A built-in side table provides storage for the seating area. Across from the settee is a built-in dinette for additional storage and use as a bookcase. A flat-screen TV complete with sound system is affixed to the forward bulkhead. This space was upgraded in 2015.

Forward of the main salon, to starboard is the helm station, fitted with a complete navigation and electronics package suitable for a yacht of this magnitude to travel long distances. Large front and sides windows allows for absolute visibility from the helm, whether standing or seated on the teak helm seat. To port of the helm seat is a fiddled shelf, suitable for a chart book. A door just outboard of the helm provides direct access to the side decks for the helmsman. And just aft of the helmsman is a navigation station and storage.

Here is a list of some of the major upgrades to Destination performed by Bristol Marine over the last 7 years. Sam is a great customer and also took good care of his boat. As you know, in addition to these upgrades he had us perform routine maintenance, upgrades and service on the engines, generator and all other systems. He also had us either do touch up or full bottom paint annually, along with zincs, Propspeed, buff/wax hull and deck, etc. Furthermore, I know he worked with others to get service in Florida, so there are likely things they did that would not show up on this list.

  • 2014
  • Flybridge modification, with upper galley/grill station on port side. This included a new Corian top, new Viking stainless grill, stainless refrigerator and storage.
  • Re-veneer master bulkhead
  • Forward vee-berth modification for more open arrangement
  • 2015
  • New Awlcraft finish on topsides, with clear coat. This was not a "normal" paint job, but what we call an A+ job with a base color coat, then clear coat on top, and a wet sand and polish to top it off for a particularly smooth finish.
  • Complete bottom strip and recoat with new Sea Hawk Biocop antifoul system.
  • Re-do nonskid paint on flybridge sole
  • Blackwater plumbing replacement in aft stateroom, and new holding tank installation
  • New dinghy and equipment storage box with custom chocks. This was custom designed and built to match the existing styling of the boat, provide a good spot for the dinghy when performing longer offshore voyages, and then double as a sunpad when not being used to store the dinghy.
  • New flybridge varnished teak table with folding leaves (to match style and functionality of lower salon table)
  • 2016
  • Galley modification, with new granite countertop, electric stove, under-counter stainless fridge, modified storage and large underhung stainless sink with faucet 
  • Installation of Arid Bilge system to keep bilge dry
  • Master head modification with new Tecma silence toilet and shower, new sink faucets and shower rebuild.
  • New Northern Lights generator
  • 2017
  • New fly bridge eisenglass enclosure (not made or installed by Bristol Marine)- this year may be incorrect, as we didn't oversee it.
  • Toilet replacements in forward heads
  • 2018 
  • Dinghy hoisting and deploying system, which removed the original boom and manual deployment system and then replaced it with a remote-controlled system for both putting the dinghy on deck and launching it off the side of the boat.
  • Add new, larger holding tank in engine room
  • 2019-2020
  • Teak decking replacement in cockpit 
  • Transom varnish strip varnish, re-letter and clear coat
  • Deck waterway and lower side deck paint with new Awlgrip finish
  • Replace galley and fly bridge refrigerators
