Week in Superyacht Brokerage: new builds accountable for sales success
By Lulu Trask
The week dating 19 – 25 June 2012 saw a drop in activity levels from the previous week. The week saw 12 new central agencies and 10 price reductions, a steady improvement from last week, and with four superyacht sales to report activity was still promising.
Four superyachts were sold this week, with a cumulative length of 190m, three of which were new-build sales. The largest sale of the week was French Shipyard Piriou’s announcement of a contract for a 76.6m explorer ship, scheduled for delivery in 2015.

New Central Agencies
Twelve new central agencies were announced this week, the same figure as for the previous week, though this week two of the additions were sailing yachts. Fraser Yachts was the only brokerage house to boast more than one addition to its sales fleet this week.
The largest addition to the sales fleet was Merle Wood & Associates’ announcement of its joint listing with Marine Marketing of Mondomarine’s 49.4m Zaliv III. The 2011 motoryacht is asking €24 million.

This week saw 10 price reductions (nine motoryachts and one sailing yachts, totalling approximately €14.2 million) this week, six less than the previous week. The largest superyacht to be reduced this week saw the largest reduction by a long way. Burgess announced a currency change on Feadship’s 62m Rasselas. Previously asking €55 million, the 2005 motoryacht is now asking $57.5 million (VAT paid), resulting in a reduction of approximately $11.6 million.
Only two further reductions this week surpassed the €1 million mark. CSO Yacht Sales reduced Italyachts’ 43m 2010 motoryacht Makira by €1.1 million to €10.9 million, and Moran Yacht & Ship reduced Euroship’s 34.8m 1991 motoryacht Miami Blues (refit in 2007) by €1.1 million to €4.5 million.
