Four new deliveries for sale in 2015

By Mike Orchard, Sales Broker, New York

There is nothing like the feeling of owning something ‘brand new’. Whether it is a uniquely designed watch, a pair of handcrafted Italian shoes or a limited edition supercar, that sensation of unlimited potential you get when you first put on or get in your new, coveted acquisition is hard to beat. In yachting, this sensation can be magnified ten-fold, but it doesn’t happen instantly as the yacht build period can last for three or four years.

From time to time, however, a shipyard will be in a position to start a project on its own, or a build owner will decide to move to pastures new. When this happens, a rare and exciting opportunity is presented: a buyer can take delivery of a fully warrantied vessel in a dramatically reduced timeframe, or immediately in some cases.

In addition to Feadship’s Project 809 below are four such enticing opportunities, which will not be around for long. To enquire about pricing for the projects below, please contact your Burgess broker.

Benetti 54m (177ft) - Lady Michelle
Available for immediate delivery, this is a chance to be part of an Italian shipyard’s 140-plus year history. Built in steel and aluminium, with a lovely Francois Zuretti-designed interior, this is a ‘go anywhere’ turn-key solution to that adventure bug.

Christensen 50m (164ft)
The immaculate Christensen Shipyard just outside Portland, Oregon has grown to become a major player in the American yacht-building industry. Christensens are in demand, and the fact that this model is one of the few sub-500 gross ton designs, with six staterooms, a lift and a helicopter pad only adds to the appeal. The Christensen 50m (164ft) project is available for a June/July 2015 delivery.

Benetti Crystal 140 43m (140ft)
A relatively new evolution in Benetti’s composite, full displacement fleet, this yacht offers everything you would expect from this Italian shipyard: plenty of access to the water and the open air, excellent outdoor areas and significant interior volume for her length. This yacht is available for delivery in May 2015.

Mangusta Oceano 46m (151ft)
This full-displacement tri-deck broadens the scope of Overmarine’s capabilities. Maintaining the sexy styling found in its renowned line of fast boats, the Oceano 46m brings these aesthetics to the long-range cruising world. The project allows for a customised interior tailored to its new owner, with delivery before the end of 2015.

Of course, whether you’re selling to upgrade or are a first-time buyer, the main issue is finding a good quality yacht that matches your needs.
