FORTUNA - 1999 100' PALMER JOHNSON
Fort Lauderdale Florida United States $3,900,000 USD
Fort Lauderdale Florida United States
Fortuna is a bespoke yacht that has many features not usually seen on a vessel of this size. The aft deck has full sliding glass doors which pocket away when the climate is warm. The stern has a very large swim deck, excellent for diving, boarding, or sunning. Because of the houseboat style design, the boat deck is enormous and allows for Al fresco dining in comfort, jacuzzi spa for 6 and plenty of space for tenders and toys. Fortuna has long range capability, shallow draft, all the bespoke features of a large yacht in a compact 100' size. A proven vessel that has traveled from Alaska to Nova Scotia. A complete interior refit, paint, electronics and wiring in 2014.
FORTUNA sleeps six / eight in three cabins aft, all with ensuite heads. The two twin bed guest cabins have Pullmans, creating the ability to sleep three in each cabin as required.
Crew quarters sleep as many as six in three cabins with two full head showers. However, for all practical purposes, four people run FORTUNA quite adequately.
FORTUNA’s interior is a finely finished, light anigre with makore and maple floors throughout and accents of polished granite for counters.
An innovative and unique feature of FORTUNA is her infinitely functional aft deck, which, with sliding side doors, can be fully enclosed and heated, air conditioned or left totally open.
FORTUNA's pilothouse is a command center with fully integrated equipment, from the real time Sea Space satellite weather computer, to its Transas chart plotter and forward/side scanning sonar. The captain can oversee all of this and have a CPlath follow up joy stick, from a custom Stidd chair, at his fingertips. FORTUNA's flybridge sports a new, sturdy fixed Bimini top that covers the forward bridge back to the mast.
The flybridge is very large with a helm position forward, two dinettes port and starboard aft, wing controls midships, a sunpad area on the centreline aft with a big hot tub under it, tender and toy storage all the way aft. There is an aft control station on the aft deck, plus a forward control station on the foredeck that is interchangeable with a small cocktail table.

FORTUNA represents the epitome of pedigree, from her sea kindly deep V Hunt hull in rigged aluminium construction, to world class standards by one of American’s finest builders. Structural integrity and fine design are ideally complimented by a stunning interior featuring hand crafted woodwork accented by fine granite work and beautiful fabrics.
With just six foot draft, and a keel to protect her props, FORTUNA can safely negotiate areas where other yachts of her size cannot go. Her Hunt hull provides her sea keeping abilities not available to even smaller yachts.
