BANYAN has benefited from several large refits, so much so there is very little of her mechanical systems that date back to her original build. Upgraded often and at a significant cost. During her 14’ extension (running gear extended) BANYAN was treated to a complete reportedly 5 million dollar mechanical refit including engines, generators, AC plant, hydraulic thrusters and windlass, Seakeepers, etc.
Available with the balance of a lease purchase the new owner will benefit from partial interest free financing and get a boat that is ready to cruise immediately.

BANYAN is a true flush deck style cockpit motor yacht that has many updates to her classic lines making her appear more modern.

Black water tank
Grey water tank
Main Engine Room panel w/the following equipment:
BANYAN has benefited from several large refits, so much so there is very little of her mechanical systems that date back to her original build.
Built at 88’ she was stretched to 102’ at Lauderdale Marine Center in 2009. At that time new 4 cycle CAT C-18’s detuned to 875 HP were installed. Hydraulic, electrical, anchoring and stabilization systems were replaced with new at that time.
Subsequent refits in 2015 and 2017 saw rebuilds of her main engines due to a design error in 2009 exhaust system design, keel area replating as needed, new polypropylene sea valves and a Delron isolator kits on stainless steel sea valves, all tanks cleaned, sandblasted, pressure tested and recoated. (2) New Sea Keeper gyros in Lazarette, which have been recently serviced, etc., etc.
As recent as 2020 her bottom was stripped and recoated, stabilizer fins dropped, actuators rebuilt, etc.

It is hard to imagine a more up to date 40 year old motor yacht!
Upgraded often and at a significant cost. During her 14’ extension (running gear extended) BANYAN was treated to a complete reportedly 5 million dollar mechanical refit including engines, generators, AC plant, hydraulic thrusters and windlass, Seakeepers, etc.
Continually cared for since, she shows like much newer yachts.
Available with the balance of a lease purchase the new owner will benefit from partial interest free financing and get a boat that is ready to cruise immediately.
