Lürssen’s 95m KISMET Sold by Cecil Wright

15th of September, 2023 By Frances Flannagan

After being on the market for only three months, 95m KISMET has been sold by Cecil Wright, with Will Christie of Christie Yachts introducing the buyer. She is an award winning superyacht delivered in 2014, with exterior design by Espen Oeino and a sophisticated interior curated by Reymond Langton Design.

When Cecil Wright first announced that they were to be the central agent for Lürssen's 95m KISMET, Chris Cecil-Wright, Founder of Cecil Wright, commented: 'KISMET is quite simply a masterpiece in today’s market and made more attractive by her asking price which has been reduced by twenty million euros...Coupled with the fact that KISMET is available to start cruising immediately, for private use or on the charter market, she must surely be the best opportunity in the large yacht sector today.'

Listed for sale on the 1st June 2023, Cecil-Wrights' observation of her being the best opportunity in the large yacht sector can be seen, as she has been sold after just three months on the market. Chris Cecil-Wright has commented: 'We are pleased to be able to announce the sale of KISMET and extend our thanks to Will Christie of Christie Yachts for introducing the buyer. Will and his team are a pleasure to work with.' She is a spectacular vessel in every essence, setting new standards in luxury yacht design. She has a wide range of amenities and features and boasts a comfortable yet lavish design, Espen Oeino in charge of the exteriors and Reymond Langton Design penning the interiors.

KISMET’s spaces on board are versatile as well as beautiful, a notable feature being a double-height main saloon adorned in black and gold Art Deco furniture and finishes. Another versatile use of space is a sumptuous and stylish sky lounge, alongside a sports bar that opens to reveal the vast deck aft, with the ability to transform into a nightclub.

There is an abundance of amenities on board that offer the most luxurious relaxation opportunities for guests, including a mosaic-tiled pool with inset jacuzzi on the upper foredeck which offers panoramic views, and a fully dedicated spa with separate hair and beauty salons. KISMET’s ability to cater for all guests can be seen in the use of the helipads; the secondary foredeck helipad can be used as a basketball court, whilst the main helipad on the bridge deck offers another relaxed lounging area.

KISMET's design features represent the pinnacle of comfort, a firepit with an integrated waterfall on the aft deck a notable example of how comfort has been intergrated within her design. Extending this element to her engineering, she features ‘at anchor stabilisers’ which increase comfort at anchor, ensuring that the experience on board mirrors the aesthetics that are at the heart of KISMET's design.

Will Christie, Founder of Christie Yachts commented: 'Cecil Wright is a boutique brokerage who, like us, specialise in the very top end of the market. We are pleased to have been able to collaborate closely with them to complete this sale. KISMET is one of the most recognisable and highly regarded yachts. We look forward to watching the owner and charter guests enjoy many happy years of cruising ahead.'

KISMET will no longer be exhibited at the Monaco Yacht Show following this speedy sale. When asked about the significance of this sale, Chris Cecil-Wright commented: 'Our job is to maintain a relationship with the entire network of brokers, creating a sensible and safe space for all. We rigourously go though every potential customer, and we put a lot of time and effort into getting stuck in and applying business rigour to actions, which always relate to our goal.' This commitment and dedication to the entire network of those involved within a sale has evidently translated to the successful sale of KISMET in such a small amount of time, showcasing the spectacular nature of Cecil-Wright as a brokerage.
