Susan and Chip Fitzpatrick with champagne aboard the Zephyr Deux

Zephyr Deux to Join the Cruise Annapolis Fleet!

The Cruise Annapolis team has just returned from a busy 5 days at the Miami International Boat Show, and in addition to the general excitement of the show, we were also able to celebrate some fantastic yacht deliveries! One particular celebration involved Susan and Chip Fitzpatrick and their new Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 490, Zephyr Deux, which will be joining the Cruise Annapolis fleet!

Susan and Chip have been a part of the Atlantic Cruising Yachts’ family for a long time, and when they decided that they were ready to upgrade to something new, the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 490 ticked all the boxes and they knew this was the yacht for them. One of the most exciting things about this purchase? This is hull #2 of the 490 model! This new fleet addition is a 2018 model which features 3 cabins and 2 electric heads. The innovative design of the 490 features inclined side decks which slope down toward the cockpit floor, allowing for obstacle-free movement about the deck.

The Fitzpatricks took advantage of our Business Yacht Ownership® program and so, will be able to offset 80%-100% of the cost of their new Jeanneau 490 through tax advantages and charter income. They will be working with our Waypoints® team to handle the charters and will keep Zephyr Deux in Annapolis during the summer months, and in the British Virgin Islands for the winter months, allowing them to enjoy their new yacht in the best climates all year round.

Chip Fitzpatrick will be onboard for the delivery of the yacht to Annapolis! This is a fantastic addition to the Cruise Annapolis fleet, and this model is already so popular, garnering awards and accolades including the Innovation Award at the Miami Boat Show, that there are already confirmed charters, even prior to her arrival in Annapolis!

Congratulations to the Fitzpatricks and we can’t wait to welcome Zephyr Deux to Annapolis!
