SEAGULL OF CAYMAN, a well-owned, well cared for Classic Canoe Stern Feadship, through all her life.
She was built as “ENTEPRISE III” then “ALMA”,”CAMDEN” and “BIG EAGLE” before becoming “SEAGULL OF CAYMAN” with the same owner for more than 20 years. With 6 staterooms, including an on deck Master, and fly bridge, she is truly a delightful and rare yacht. It is obvious she has been blessed with a knowledgeable owner and crew, and perhaps most exciting of all; she is a classic yacht that has been upgraded with care and forethought.
SEAGULL’S interior is one of quiet elegance with an interior volume that feels much larger than her 131’. The main salon, with her original rich wood finish, creates the feel of a luxuriously appointed home.
A formal starboard entrance is amidships, opening to a beautiful curved bar and bar seating. Forward is the entrance to the galley, access to the pilothouse stairs and the lower crew quarters/engine room. Further forward, well separated is the entrance to the on Deck Master Stateroom. A Day Head is conveniently located aft of the Bar area.
MASTER SUITE, upon entering, consists of a large private bath area with stall shower, vanity and sanitary facilities, all done in a beautiful marble. The center-line king bed has a panoramic view from both port and starboard windows, while directly forward is entertainment and two large walk in closets.
MAIN SALON and DINING SALON, are both considerably larger than one would expect in a yacht this size, and are located amidships aft, with the Dining Salon offering both guest dining with storage for the various fine china, crystal and silver.
A few steps aft to the Main Salon, with original Feadship joinery, and featuring a beautiful long lether couch, matching arm chairs on port. An original curved, built in bookcase by Feadship is on the aft section of the port salon. To starboard of the salon is an entertainment center, and desk. A custom silk carpet adorns the sole. Access to the guest accommodations is by a curved staircase, located on the starboard aft corner of the salon.
The Aft Deck opens from double teak and glass doors, which serve to make these expansive areas even larger. The now open aft deck, still offer the option to be open or air-conditioned at ones choice. In the center of this expansive space resides a round glass topped table with seating for 10.
LOWER DECK, GUEST STATEROOMS:
Five Guest Staterooms are located in this area:
After going down the traditional Feadship staircase and proceed forward, there are two mirror image staterooms, port and starboard. These offer the option of either twin beds or with a quick adjustment, a king bed stateroom. Both have entertainment centers and large ensuite bath with stall shower.
Aft of these staterooms is the smallest of the guest staterooms, with a pair of single berths arranged in an over/under fashion. Regardless of being the smallest, this area still offers a large closet and ensuite head with stall shower.
In the passage way aft there is both linen and towel storage, as well as a large and proper wine cellar.
Opposite the staircase is the Fourth guest stateroom, which like the two forward staterooms offers the re-arrangement of the beds to be singles or full king. Ensuite bath and large closet.
The aft most stateroom is one that is traditionally found on a canoe stern yacht, which follows the curve of the hull. This allows for large single beds on both sides, an ensuite bath and two large closets, while also offering the most floor space of any the guest staterooms.
The entire guest stateroom area is finished to Feadship standards and woodwork.

The engine room is entered from aft of the crew quarters. Upon entering the engine room, you immediately understand why Feadship are considered as the best built yachts. From the placement of equipment, the quality of material used and the excellent access to all-important areas of the machinery spaces, a Feadship engine room has no rival. It is apparent why marine engineers prefer to work on these yachts. Beyond the normal high quality machinery spaces, SEAGULL’S engine room has been maintained to the highest standards possible and shows the high level of pride taken by the chief engineer, Captain, and owner.

Refit project 2015/16/17
Since November first 2015, “SEAGULL OF CAYMAN” has started a multi million Euro long shipyard period for a full refit, inclusive of all necessary steel work in her bottom, tanks and piping ETC.
All temporary double plates have been removed and steel has been cropped and welded as per Class requirement.
All tanks have been opened, cleaned, sand blasted and epoxy coated as necessary.
A new Hamann black water treatment plan is installed, 2017 MARPOL specification, to replace the existing Microfor system.
95% of the engine room pipes has been replaced, engine room bottom plating still in good condition has been sand blasted and epoxy coated.
All pumps, valves and electric motors in engine room were replaced or serviced.
3 square meters fins, zero speed stabilizers are fitted for modern comfort at anchor.
A full new Awl grip paint job, from top of the mast down, with in depth treatment of corrosion, many stainless steel insert have been added for even better than new protection.
A new huge sun pad has been installed on the upper deck, with new cushion all around the boat.
New flat screen TV and Fusion entertainment center throughout.
Many, many more technical renovations have been done and are still in progress.
The aft deck is now open, in a more European style, also giving “SEAGULL” a much nicer profile…
During last summer, “SEAGULL” performed sea trials and testing of all repaired or new systems to insure proper performances and services.
Last phase of the refit is the interior décor restyling that has been given to Patrick Khayat creator of Blanc Bleu.
The new interior is a “modern Classic” using noble material like silk carpet, leather and brass for a perfect harmony with the yacht style.
