2007 president 660 legend


‘First Lady’ represents a rare and exciting opportunity to own a beautifully built and specified motor yacht in superb ‘turn key’ condition for the discerning cruising couple or family.

A rare opportunity to purchase this magnificent pilothouse motor yacht with a dazzling list of high specification equipment including Caterpillar C12 engines with low hours (820hrs), Northern Lights generator, Wesmar stabilisers, 3 helm stations + Hydronautica docking remote, new Brig tender and ADC crane. Fully aircondioned, superb layout with beautiful joinery, absolutely immaculate presentation, professional management under instructions from a fastidious owner.

This stylish and capable pilothouse motor yacht was delivered new to the Gold Coast in 2007 where she was moored, having limited use but maintained in ‘as new’ condition. After a cruise to the Great Barrier Reef she was then sold to the current owners in 2012, (having only 380 hours on the engines) and brought to Sydney. Since that time she has been professionally maintained and upgraded by Sydney Vessel Management, under instructions from an experienced and extremely fastidious cruising couple.

Now based at the Royal Motor Yacht Club at Newport, ‘First Lady’ has been continuously lavished with attention both cosmetically and in respect to engineering and live aboard systems. She is literally a ‘turn key’ blue water capable cruiser, ready to go.

The luxury of space and finish are the hallmarks of ‘First Lady’. Boarding onto the oversized swimming/tender/fishing platform one enters the transom door to a spacious laid teak cockpit which has a superb dining table for six, a wet bar, and an engine control station. Magnificent stainless steel sliding doors offer a grand entry to the luxurious main saloon, the beautifullydetailed cabinetry finished in high gloss American cherrywood. This area comprises a three seater sofa to port with a large coffee table, and two matching club chairs and side table to starboard. A hidden large screen LCD television with DVD/ Foxtel system is connected to a Bose surround sound system. A generous bookcase is centred in the forward bulkhead with glass fronted, illuminated cocktail cabinets on either side. There are multiple other saloon cupboards for general storage.

Heading forward up three stairs, the chef’s galley awaits, with all the comforts of home. A domestic sized, double door LG fridge/ freezer has chilled water and ice maker. A Schott ceramic glass four burner electric cooktop is paired with a Bosch convection oven/ microwave, Smeg compact dishwasher, double stainless steel sinks with Insinkerator, huge Corian bench tops and generous storage.  A very tasteful etched glass panel separates the galley from the lower saloon but allows the cook to keep pace with conversation among guests.

Just forward of the galley and set where a lower helm station might have been, is a very large U shaped dining area with a superb inlaid compass rose in the high gloss dining table. Plush creme coloured Ultra leather seating has capacious grocery and dry goods storage underneath and the windscreens offer a panoramic view either when moored or passage making. Verosol blinds shield the sun and fully ducted Cruisair reverse cycle air conditioning controls the climate.

A compact lower control station (without helm) to port incorporates Raymarine repeater units, Morse KE 5 electronic engine controls plus the Sidepower bow and stern thruster controls for easy handling. At this lower station the controls for 240/24/12 volt panels are conveniently mounted in glass fronted panels including the operation of the 12 kva Northern Lights generator and shore power systems. On the port and starboard sides of this saloon there are superbly made, aircraft style, watertight doors for easy access to the side and fore decks, which also allow cooling breezes to waft through on balmy days.

The Portuguese bridge has stowage for lines and fenders and separates the foredeck which is functionally equipped with a self stowing, stainless steel CQR anchor and 60 metres of galvanised chain, fitted to a Maxwell 3500 capstan style electric winch which can be remotely operated. Both salt and fresh water wash down systems are fitted, as well as a hot and cold shower on the swimming platform. First Lady boasts magnificent stainless steel bollards and integrated fairleads of an impressive size right around the decks with smaller cleats on the aft platform to deal with tenders.

On the starboard side of the galley a generous internal staircase takes guests up to the fully enclosed and luxuriously appointed ‘Sky Lounge’ pilothouse which incorporates a beautifully laid out dashboard, comprehensively equipped with electronic engine systems paired to large size LG screens to repeat the navigation information from the Raymarine E80 system. This is connected to a remote autopilot control panel in easy reach of the twin Navigator ‘Recaro’ style helm seats. Full Caterpillar electronic engine management systems are fitted. A chrome Danforth compass is centrally positioned in front of the helm and makes an attractive and traditional addition to the helm station. The port side dashboard has a lift up chart table which is excellent for traditional navigation using paper charts, plus excellent storage for binoculars and miscellaneous items. Vision forward and to either side is remarkable through the panoramic windows.

The upper dash panel houses controls for the very effective Wesmar Fin stabilisers, Xantrex 3000 watt inverter, pump and light schematics, and the excellent and accurate Tank Tender system for precise analysis of the various fuel, water and holding tanks. VHF radio and enhanced mobile communications systems are fitted as well as all regulatory safety equipment.

To port is a locker to access the enormous storage opportunities under the dash panel, easily capable of housing deck chairs, life jackets and large ancillary items. Twin aircraft style, watertight side doors (matching the ones below) allow access to the flying bridge wing decks which are a boon for close quarters vision as well as cleaning the windows. Recently replaced Verosol blinds shade all these spaces and have kept ‘First Lady’s’ full gloss American Cherrywood interiors and gloss teak and holly flooring in as new condition.

Aft of the helm station is a generous L shaped guest sofa (also in creme Ultra leather) and table for four so guests can keep the skipper company or have a nap during passages. To starboard is a full counter wet bar with U-Line fridge and sink. An aft door provides access to the upper sun deck which has a full sized domestic Turbo gas BBQ, two ‘steamer chair’ style sun lounges as well as a hatch and ladder access to the lower cockpit. This private upper deck is marvellous for twilight cocktails with a splendid view or for those who wish to sunbathe in seclusion.

Close quarters handling is eased by three fixed control stations; the pilothouse, lower dining saloon (both enjoying excellent vision through the opening side doors), the concealed cockpit station on the starboard side, or the newly installed Hydranautica remote control which operates the engines and both thrusters from any position around the decks. ‘First Lady’ is easily handled with confident dexterity thanks to the visibility, thrust and multiple control stations, including the safety of the covered side decks.

The magnificent below deck accommodations are accessed by a spacious companionway staircase on the port side of the dining saloon and one winds down to a very clever lower foyer area from which all the guest cabins have double sliding doors opening into. The effect is of an enormous length and width (when all the doors are open), from the double island bed in the bow, past the upper/lower twin cabin amidships and the superb queen sized master suite, aft. All the cabins are very generously appointed with camphor lined wardrobes, multiple cupboards and spacious drawers. Tasteful lighting illuminates these three suites, including concealed stairway lighting, individual bunk lamps and overhead fittings. The master cabin has a deluxe ensuite of generous proportions, and the forward double suite and mid twin cabin share a fully equipped shower and head, all in luxury finishes and of a generous size.

The twin cabin to starboard formerly housed the washer dryer (this unit is rarely used by the owners and was moved to the aft lazarette) so both storage cupboards are huge in volume for wet weather gear, linen and towel storage or dry goods, wine and groceries. Plush creme carpets with full underlay enhance the luxurious feel. This open plan layout particularly suits the current owners who enjoy a master suite opened up to all the cabins, dramatically improving the feeling of space and luxury. Large stainless steel portholes bring light and plenty of ventilation to all the lower cabins and it is quite a unique space experience for a vessel of this size.

Back in the aft cockpit an oversized central hatch accesses the ladder to the massive lazarette and the ‘secret men’s business section’, the beautifully spaced and proportioned engine room. Twin Caterpillar C12 turbo charged diesels of 705hp each have only done 820 hours and like all the engineering and equipment, have been well installed and fastidiously maintained by a very fussy owner. The Northern Lights 12 kva generator has done 885 hours and all engines have been professionally and thoroughly serviced in October 2021. Everything is in pristine and immaculate condition.

During a recent slipping ‘First Lady’ had the propeller shafts pulled and new bearings installed, service to the Wesmar stabiliser fins, new AGM batteries for house and engine power, removal and inspection of the rudders, plus inspection and testing of all hydraulic and electric operations. The hull and skin fittings were closely inspected to provide a survey for insurance requirements.

The bilges are clean and dry and the Groco through hull engine intakes have been removed, cleaned and serviced and installed with new seals. The Fireboy automatic fire protection system has been serviced and complianced with a current certificate. A SKW 95 litres/hour water maker augments the 1,135 fresh water tanks and the fuel holdings of 3,785 give First Lady a comfortable range of 550 nautical miles at ten knots allowing for 10% reserve, the fuel burn being 30 litres per motor per hour. Full speed at 2,300 rpm delivers a smooth and impressive 19 knots with the Hynautic trim tabs fine tuning the ride angle.

The lazarette section houses the water maker, LG washing machine, easy to service power steering rams and is a huge full beam carpeted area for water toys, deck chairs and additional safety equipment or engine spares.

The aft platform has a recent improvement of a new ADC 250 kg electric/hydraulic crane to comfortably lift the new Brig Falcon 320 tender, fully equipped with safety equipment and powered by a Honda 20hp with electric start. This is fitted with a full cover. With the tender easily and safely deployed, the huge platform provides a spacious area for keen fishermen, swimmers and their nautical toys, plus new U shaped stainless rails aft partially enclose the area for safety.

First Lady has full clear covers in the cockpit as well as doors to the side decks which enclose the area in all weather. These roll up clears have an additional sun awing for the cockpit, providing a cool and inviting shaded entertaining area on a hot summers day.

First Lady represents a rare and exciting opportunity to own a beautifully built and specified motor yacht in superb ‘turn key’ condition for the discerning cruising couple or family. The list of high end original equipment plus the exceptional list of recent upgrades make her extremely competitive with the latest offerings. Built to comply with stringent US and European standards, thismagnificent President 660 is available for sale with a delivery date after February 2022.
