1977 Broward 81 Motoryacht

30 years under one, knowledgable owner.

30 years under the same, fastidious captain.

30 year commitment to care, maintenance and upgrades.

Not in 30 years has this unique opportunity been available.

The Motoryacht Pyewacket is now available for sale.

Pyewacket has given its current owners years of amazing experiences--from the Bahamas to Maine.  She turns heads in every harbor, and is one of the most discernible cruising yachts on the East Coast.    

Reluctantly, the owners have decided it is time to move on to their next chapter in life.  She is currently in the Bahamas but will be headed north for it's usual summer cruising routine.  (And the owners love her enough, that they will charter back for part of the season if the new owner is so inclined.)

This handsome motoryacht offers comfortable accommodations for six, three crew and just delightful living spaces.  From an open flybridge, to an enclosed aft deck, to a formal dining room (that is right, dining room, not dining area), Pyewacket will please the most discriminating cruisers and entertainers.  

She has has been in a consistent program of inspection, maintenance and upgrades.  There is very little on Pyewacket that is original, although all the upgrades have been in keeping with the original and timeless design.  

A partial list of upgrades and condition:

  • Repowered with CAT C12's
  • Upgraded Garmin electronics
  • Rebuilt generators
  • All exterior surfaces have been painted
  • Most interior joiner work has been replaced
  • All pumps and hoses and systems are current
  • Exterior brightwork is finished to a very high standard.

In addition to serving its owner well over the years, Pyewacket has had an amazing charter history, which could be continued on with a new owner.  The accommodations really work and the condition is just head and shoulders above the crowd.

Pyewacket is stunning from afar, but equally stunning in an up-close inspection.  She is simply turn key, and ready for new owners. 

Preliminary listing, full details, exclusion list, current survey and photos to follow.
