Everyone who visited IMPETUOUS on the day we were there was truly impressed by this custom 120’ Crescent yacht, built in 2004, and her delightful crew. IMPETUOUS is a superbly maintained yacht that warmly welcomes guests of all ages and is ideally equipped for charter families and friends.
Captain Jim Lynn explained that IMPETUOUS is constantly being upgraded by a conscientious owner and it shows. The furniture is newly upholstered, newly varnished tables glisten and fresh wallpaper adds a contemporary flair. The AC is fully upgraded and there is iPod accessibility throughout the yacht with interfaces (within cellular range) for wireless Internet accessibility.
The gracious main salon is designed in golden tones with plush furnishings that beckon relaxation. We proceed past the formal dining area to reach the spacious eat in galley equipped with both counter stools and generous banquette seating. This is a great place for the kids to help make the pizza or gathering together for a late night snack.
Marvelous aromas are in the realm of Paul Stevens, Chef extraordinaire, who is endowed with gourmet cooking talents and a keen sense of humor. He busily prepares a selection of delicacies that include delectable dates wrapped in bacon stuffed with goat cheese.
A handsome spiral banister of braided leather leads to the staterooms on the lower deck. The stately master features ample built in storage, a huge shower and aromatic walk-in cedar closet. The guest staterooms are luxurious and the forward V-berth is placed comparatively low for comfortable access. Cedar closets fragrance the rooms and ensuite facilities are lovely and spacious. This very kid friendly yacht also has an adorable twin stateroom to delight any child.
IMETUOUS has a pocket exercise room with a story. Here the wall features a meticulously hand painted photo reproduction of the Owner in his race car. Captain Jim Lynn explains, “he was one of the first Americans to race with the Porsche racing team back in the 1950s. Shortly after the picture was taken he drove into the wall doing 170mph and miraculously walked away from it. He won a lot of huge races across Europe, he placed second in Le Mans, he was first in Sebring, he won the Mille Miglia in Italy, and he won the Nuremburg Ring in Germany.
About fifteen years ago he went around and found all of his old (race) cars, had them completely restored, and maintains them in one of his garages. He is also doing vintage races, two years ago at the Porsche race reunion. We took the yacht up there and it was quite amazing. He won first place best in show, racing the same car that he raced back in the day.”
His story left little mystery as to the name IMPETUOUS, and indeed there is an infectious aura of spontaneity and excitement on board this superb yacht, which is presently available for charter in New England.
