A flurry of news ahead of show season


With yachts being primed for display ahead of the autumn shows, the market has seen a significant amount of new listings and while still lower than last year, more price reductions. Following the sale of 30.5m Melimar, broker Rob Newton of YachtZoo spoke to SuperyachtNews.com about the sale and the current American market.

"While it was a bit of a drawn out deal due to weather delays and a busy summer, her new owner is currently very happily cruising in the Bahamas" Newton shares. As for the market on the whole, he maintains a very optimistic view for the road ahead. "I don't know if there are necessarily more buyers, but as prices dipped down this year, more buyers tended to come forward." As SuperyachtNews.com as reported throughout the summer, more brokers are finally seeing more realistic pricing when a yacht is initially placed on the market. "I think more sellers have stopped looking at the market of the past and are focusing on yacht prices for 2013 in order to ensure their yacht is priced correctly" finished Newton.

The week running 3 – 9 September saw three sales completed, 15 new central agencies announced, 10 price reductions made and two other brokerage announcements made.

The largest sale completed this week was 43.3m Princess Sarah. Completed by Richmond Yachts in 2007, she was listed through Scott French of Fraser Yachts at $12,900,000, with Allied Marine representing the buyer.
