Grammy award winning singer Billy Joel has turned his hand to yacht design once again with the 57ft Vendetta

Billy Joel has put his Zurn 57 up for sale with Northrop & Johnson, priced at $1.295m (roughly £870,000).

Vendetta is a 57ft commuter yacht, which the Grammy award-winning singer designed in 2005 to get him from his Long Island estate to the centre of New York City.

A modified V-hull and twin 1,300hp MAN diesel engines mean it is capable of an impressive top speed of 47 knots, despite weighing in at more than 18 tonnes.

Key features include seating space for six in the 1920s-style saloon and an open layout below decks, which includes a galley, settee and heads compartment up in the bows.

Vendetta was presented to the boat buying public at the recent Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Billy Joel has a strong track record with designing motor yachts – his previous launch, a 38ft Zurn runabout, has been reproduced more than 50 times in the past twenty years.
