2018 Merritt 86 Convertible
EXTENDED WARRANTY ON ENGINES TILL 01/07/2024
OWL’S NEST, Merritt Hull #105, is the 8th of 9 custom 86 ft. sportfish yachts designed by Roy Merritt and built by Merritt Boatworks. Not only are the immense interior living spaces and accommodations of superyacht quality, the 86 ft. OWL’S NEST is agile, highly maneuverable, and capable of tournament fishing, cruising, and docking anywhere in the world. She offers a comfortable ride, taking on head seas (and any other direction) with ease, and twin Seakeeper gyrostabilizers provide roll stability. The Merritt 86 is designed and engineered to go the distance safely and efficiently with redundancy of critical machinery and systems, and to perform well with a refined running bottom, powered by twin 2600hp MTU diesels.
OWL’S NEST comfortably accommodates 8 guests/owner and 2 crew members, including captain in 5 staterooms and 4 heads. Merritt’s signature impeccable joinery, high-end appliances, fixtures, materials, furnishings, entertainment systems, along with cleverly built-in storage throughout the yacht, provide everything needed for relaxation and socializing at the dock or underway to remote fishing grounds. The foredeck features a gigantic sunpad with pop-up TV for outdoor socializing, sunning, and entertainment. Her huge cockpit and open bridge with hardtop and tower are well-equipped and outfitted for serious sportfishing. The beautiful distinctive Merritt profile along with graceful, unbroken sheerline, rounded transom, rich teak, and build quality, put Merritt consistently at the top of best sportfish boat lists.
The opportunity to own a custom Merritt 86—one of the nicest superyachts sportfishing boats on the planet, without a near decade build-time wait, doesn't happen very often. But due to the owner’s change of plans, OWL’S NEST is currently available for sale.
