Brokerage storms the sales market.

Following a difficult period, our sales brokers have been transacting frantically, selling large yachts and adding new yachts to our rich and varied sales fleet, as Richard Lambert explains


'It's been a refreshing couple of months for us,' says Head of Sales Richard Lambert. 'After the enforced calm of COVID, we're now in an invigorating storm of brokerage activity, including an open day for brokers in Monaco last Thursday, slightly modified naturally, for virus safety.

'We've sold six yachts, all between 40m (196.9ft) and 100m (328.1ft), consolidating our global position as the large yacht specialist,' adds Richard. 'Three are confidential sales but we can talk about the sale of the 73m (239.5ft) Feadship HASNA, a yacht we sold to the owner in 2014, built, managed for charter then sold again. That was closely followed by the 40.8m (133.7ft) Bloemsma Van Breemen performance sloop VALQUEST, insured by Burgess since 2014. Both of these yachts changed hands at the start of August.

'Just this week we sold TRIPLE SEVEN, the 68m (223.1ft) Nobiskrug that we have managed for charter since 2013. We've also just closed the sale of a 60m berth in Marina Genova Aeroporto to an owner looking for a permanent base with great facilities in the Med. It's so good to be busy again!’

To replenish the sales fleet brokers have signed up four quality new yachts in the last month.

First is the dazzlingly impressive FLAG, a 62.3m (204.4ft) yacht delivered by Feadship, Royal Van Lent in 2000. 'She was completely refitted in 2012 to award winning acclaim and now has iconic interiors by Chahan Interior Design,' says Richard. 'She's a tremendously successful family charter yacht under our management, impeccably maintained, relentlessly upgraded and ready to take a new owner and 17 other guests cruising this summer, or return to commercial operation. She is asking USD 46,000,000.

'We're also delighted to welcome the 58.2m (191ft) UNBRIDLED, built by Trinity Yachts in the United States and delivered in 2009 and still under original ownership. She's another sought after Burgess charter yacht and after an extensive interior refurbishment in 2015 and a full repaint and extensive interior upgrades in 2019, she's a very exciting opportunity for us asking USD 24,999,000 with US duty paid. At 803GT, she has huge deck spaces with many outdoor lounge areas, a large sun deck pool and interiors with plenty of natural light.

'Next is CYNTHIA, also a yacht we represent both for sale and charter. She's a 55.5m (182.1ft) yacht by Feadship, De Vries, delivered in 2005 to award winning acclaim but now fresh from a multi-million dollar refit in 2018, also award winning, and sporting an exquisite maritime inspired interior by Claudette Bonville. Asking USD 25,900,000, she's another yacht with high volume for her length, at 782GT, and has a great mix of interior and exterior spaces.

'Our fourth yacht is the 46.8m (153.6ft) LA POLONIA. Built in aluminium to ABS classificaton by US yard Swiftships, she was delivered in 1999 and had a major refit in 2014 during which her main engines were replaced and following comprehensive maintenance including a hull repaint in 2018, she past her latest class survey in 2019. There's abundant versatile deck space for her 10 guests, al fresco dining on the bridge deck aft and the owner can choose between two full beam cabins, one forward on the main deck and another on the lower deck. At EUR 5,950,000 with EU VAT paid, she is priced to sell and ready for inspection in the south of France.


'Whatever you're looking for, we have it,' confirms Richard, 'from the 126.2m (414ft) legendary Lurssen explorer OCTOPUS to the 33.3m (109.2ft) Gulf Craft coastal cruiser MYKONOS. Perhaps the biggest opportunity is the scrupulously maintained 82.5m (270.6ft) Abeking & Rasmussen SECRET. She's listed with us for EUR 99,000,000 by a highly motivated seller, ready to consider any sensible offer. Get in touch to find out more about SECRET or any of the 80 yachts in our sales fleet.'
