Yacht Surveillance


There is no question that the last 12 months have been exceptional in terms of global yacht sales over 24m. Month-on-month compared to the last 2 years the sales have been significantly higher across the board (see chart).

There have been some incredible sales, including 2 x 100m+ yachts. The late Paul Allen’s iconic 126.20m Lürssen, OCTOPUS (2003 / 2019), asking EUR 235,000,000, sold this August and the Monaco stalwart, the 104.85m Blohm + Voss, LADY MOURA (1990 / 2020) was sold in June, asking USD 125,000,000. Of the 55 pedigree Northern European sales, particular standouts were the 76.61m Amels BOADICEA, (1999 / 2020) — which then joined the Cecil Wright charter fleet — and the 75.40m Lürssen, BELLA VITA (2009), sold asking POA. I am delighted to say that the largest Feadship sale of the last 12 months once again was by the team at Cecil Wright & Partners — 62m, NEW HAMPSHIRE (2005 / 2018), asking EUR 39,000,000.

The run of sales looks set to continue as the replacement rate of new yachts coming onto the market is almost on parity with those being sold. The 97.20m Lürssen, CARINTHIA VII (2002 / 2017), asking POA, is the largest addition to the global sales fleet, followed closely by the 92.42m Nobiskrug, TATOOSH (2000 / 2017), asking EUR 90,000,000. The 86m Oceanco SEVEN SEAS (2010), asking EUR 131,000,000, is the newer of the opportunities to come onto the market of her size, followed closely by the 85.65m A&R, C2 (2008 / 2019), asking EUR 90,000,000, which sleeps an incredible 31 guests in 15 cabins*. The largest sailing yacht to come onto the market is the stunning 85.90m collaboration between Oceanco and Vitters, AQUIJO (2016), asking POA.

Feadship News

Since my last article in mid-November 2020, there have been 13 Feadships sold. The 2 largest by both length and value were sold in near record time: the 60.35m, BLUE MOON (2005 / 2014), asking EUR 43,900,000, sold after 46 days, while the 57.45m, HALO (2015), asking EUR 64,000,000, sold after just 45 days.

In addition to the above mentioned sales there have only been two withdrawn from the Feadship market in these last nine months. Aside from BLUE MOON and HALO, the other significant sales are the 44.65m, GLADIATOR (2010 / 2018), asking EUR 16,900,000, and the 44.20m, MOONSAND (2015), asking EUR 29,950,000. Other sales of note include:

- 49.80m, BLU470 (1990 / 2014), asking EUR 14,000,000

- 49.13m, MQ2 (1990 / 2015), asking USD 9,000,000

- 45.77m, ANCALLIA (1984 / 2014), asking EUR 14,000,000

- 42.60m, FULL MOON (2003 / 2017), asking USD 15,900,000

Of the 35 Feadship yachts for sale currently, 16 have come onto the market in the last 9 months, including some familiar faces. The 67.00m, ANNA I (2007 / 2021), asking EUR 53,900,000, is the largest addition. Following a fairly extensive refit including new paint and a freshened-up interior, she comes back onto the market with a price reduced by EUR 5.1 million. She is a great opportunity in top condition and is well priced. Also returning to the market with a reduced asking price is the 60.35m, ROCK.IT (2014 / 2019), asking EUR 52,500,000. Next on the list is the 49.99m, HANIKON (2004 / 2017), asking EUR 22,900,000. She is one of the most successful charter yachts in her market segment and commands a premium which she happily achieves. Of a similar size is the 49.70m, HERCULINA (1998 / 2021), asking EUR 17,500,000 (VAT paid). She has been extensively refitted in the last 5 years of ownership with over EUR 10 million being invested, mainly in upgrading her technical / mechanical systems. Among her most recent works she has had her hull painted a striking blue. Another Feadship that has had significant investment in refitting is the 47.10m, MARY A (2001 / 2021), asking USD 19,500,000. Having just completed her special survey last spring, she is a truly turnkey opportunity. Last but not least is the relatively small yet mighty 33.90m, MOON SAND TOO (2016), asking EUR 15,950,000. She was the 3rd of the 5 Lagoon Series yachts built. Featuring remarkably high deck heads throughout and four well-proportioned guest cabins, with the Feadship build quality, she stands head and shoulders above anything else in her market segment. Other phenomenal Feadships for sale are:

- 62.30m, FLAG (2000 / 2012), asking USD 46,000,000

- 61.87m, SEA OWL (2013), asking EUR 89,000,000
