ENCORE has recently completed Platinum Marine's Transformational refit program and presents extremely well with a new interior and freshly painted exterior.
ENCORE completed Platinum Marine’s Transformational refit program and presents extraordinarily well with a new interior. The Transformational refit program offers the revitalization and customization of high quality vessels that are structurally sound and have many years of safe and reliable service ahead. Crescent Custom Yachts originally built ENCORE to Bureau Veritas (BV) class standards, using a proven Westport hull design. Building on this foundation, Platinum Marine made the following major improvements:
- New tri-deck styling and structure with elevated pilothouse, skylounge and sun deck resulting in more interior space and more functional exterior deck space.
- Improved hull and superstructure styling makes the profile and deck design current, functional, and attractive.
- New pilothouse with reverse sheer windows and Portuguese bridge design, featuring state of the art navigational and communication electronics as well as new wing station capability. Visibility and control are excellent under all conditions.
- Brand new custom built, designer-styled interior with new woodwork, new soft goods, new galley and galley equipment, state of the art entertainment electronics, LED lighting throughout, electronic shades, and new Durante furnishings.
- Complete Alexseal paint job
- Replacement or upgrading of ALL onboard systems and equipment, including new Hamann waste treatment and make-up air conditioning systems.
- Addition of bulbous bow and raised bulwarks for improved seakeeping as well as enlarged swim platform for better water access.
In making the above major improvements, every single system and piece of equipment on the yacht was thoroughly assessed and either replaced or updated to put ENCORE in turnkey condition. The following walk-through elaborates on the details of the refit.
Starting with the expansive swim platform it can be seen that this yacht has been prepared for all levels of water sports and careful consideration to boarding from a tender has been taken into account. All decks are finished using Marine Deck’s cork as a substitute for teak in order to drastically cut down on maintenance, costs, and manpower. A large watertight Freeman hatch provides access to the spacious storage in the lazarette underneath the swim platform.
Dual port and starboard stairways provide access to the aft deck which features undercover, custom molded dinette seating, customer inlaid wood dining table, fully retractable entertainment system and highly polished stainless railings and deck fittings. Overhead LED lighting and speakers makes this a very pleasant area to enjoy a meal or simply relax.
Staying on the exterior, a starboard staircase provides ready access to the boat deck above where the 15’ Novurania (90hp Yamaha 4 stroke) and Honda AquaTrax PWC are stored. Launching is easily handled with the fully renovated Nautical Structures hydraulic davit. For larger entertaining functions, the tender chocks are quickly removed from the stainless inserts leaving a clean, flush deck.
Continuing up the starboard side stairwell to the sundeck, you will find a built in 8 person Hydrojet Spa-tub offering fantastic 360° views while remaining protected from the sun via the large custom hardtop. A comfortable padded rattan sectional provides a sociable setting for meals, drinks, or just relaxing in the shade. Also on the top deck you find a large barbeque, refrigerator and sink hosted in a useable cabinet/counter that allows for meal and/or drink preparation. For sun worshipers, additional rattan pods provide various configurations for relaxing or socializing in the sun on the aft portion of this uppermost deck.
Moving inside after returning to the aft deck, the full beam salon gives the immediate impression of a brand new boat. With a creative combination of dark oak paneling and light wool carpets “warmed” with a 50” Synergy digital fireplace, Platinum has created a cozy environment that pleases all senses. Once the large entertainment system is summoned via remote, the salon has access to many forms of entertainment or web browsing. There is also a small workstation area to port for occasional access to emails or the web when necessary. The forward section of the salon incorporates a large 8-person table for formal dining and features the commissioned custom artwork of Christine Breakell-Lee. Custom furniture by Durante using only the finest textiles, down, and memory foam are featured throughout the yacht.
Moving forward along the starboard companionway toward the galley is a day head and access by stair to the bridge and sky lounge. At this point, the interior transitions into a classic New England styled country kitchen with a central island and copious casual seating. There is also a cozy booth option for enjoying casual dining. Galley millwork is finished in classic white that contrasts well with the warmth of the dark hardwood flooring. Cesar stone countertops, a full entertainments system and world-class appliances make this room one of the best in any yacht, featuring brands such as Viking, Subzero, and Miele.
Forward of the galley (below deck) is the large VIP stateroom. This extra roomy cabin boasts a unique ensuite bath with shower, a walk in closet, and full entertainment system all of which combine to provide a very nice room for special guests.
By returning to the salon, we can proceed towards the master and 2 additional guest staterooms through the port companionway. In this hallway is a door leading to a large staff technical space that is very well finished and hosts all of the low voltage systems like the audio visual, wi-fi, satellite controls, FT NavVision, monitoring and many more pertinent components of the ships systems. This is an excellent staging area for any number of projects and provides easy access to all the aforementioned systems.
Further forward along the port companionway, you find a stairwell to the lower foyer which a beautiful entry area that separates the master from the guest staterooms and provides access to the guest laundry. A large separate room on the starboard side holds the Miele guest washer and dryer, additional storage, and a functional work vanity for the cleaning duties.
Forward of the foyer, the master stateroom is in the quietest, calmest part of the yacht: low and centered amidships. Inside you find a king sized bed, his and her closets, copious drawer storage, and a comfortable settee. The his-and-hers bathroom arrangement is beautifully appointed with marble counters and accents as well as modern fixtures. Again a full entertainment system compliments the amenities.
The aft side of the lower foyer allows access to the two remaining guest cabins. The starboard cabin has a queen size memory foam mattress while the port features two large memory foam singles berths that can be joined as a large queen sized berth. Both rooms enjoy spacious ensuite bathrooms incorporating stone counters/floors/walls. Entertainment systems, storage and heated bathroom floors round out the features.
The last guest area of the boat to explore is up two decks where we find the newly constructed skylounge and pilothouse. This space is an excellent example of how to maximize the aesthetic and functionality for both guests and crew. With a state of the art pilothouse, the Captain has incredible visibility through reverse sheer windows and a near-360 degrees line of site. Through 3 flat panel screens, the crew can access a wide array of ship’s information related to every system on the boat while simultaneously monitoring CCTV, the navigation software, and radars. The bridge’s clean look and easy access to information belies the complicated host of systems and information being controlled and accessed by the captain. Within a few steps outside of each wing door, the captain can set up the mobile wing station for easy dockage from a vantage point of perfect visibility for the length of the yacht. Stidd chairs and a custom settee provide seating for crew and guests to relax and/or observe the action.
Separating the skylounge from the bridge is full wet bar for guest service. The skylounge’s large windows allow for fantastic sightseeing, and again this area is equipped with the latest lighting and A/V equipment to meet guests’ needs and expectations. A large 64” LCD screen is perfect for watching a movie while sitting in the comfortable array of Durante furniture. Another 50” Synergy digital fireplace is incorporated under the TV.
The entire boat features automated remote controlled roller shades, state of the art entertainment, and a make-up air system that provides fresh air throughout. Again, there is not a system, feature, or piece of equipment that has not been renewed or replaced on ENCORE. She is readily available for inspection by appointment for qualified buyers.

Using a proven Westport hull designed by Jack Sarin that was originally constructed to BV standards, this particular hull benefits from a more robust stringer and frame arrangement, making the hull stronger and less prone to flexing in rough sea conditions. Paul Frederickson, one of Sarin’s naval architects at the time of development, was used as the naval architect for this transformational refit in order to retain and build upon all of the original BV specifications both in the hull and elsewhere throughout the specification. This continuity lends confidence and validity to the new updated design concept.
The hull construction is cored fiberglass with gelcoat that is painted high gloss white (currently using an Alexseal paint system).
