“Present enquiries show optimism for market” says Jean-Marie Récamier of CNI


With the recent sale of 88m Quatroelle and this week’s sale of 62.5m Icon, the 2014 market is shaping up to be one with greater LOAs moving around on the market than in the past. It appears clients are looking for bigger LOAs and larger GTs for their purchases. Jean-Marie Récamier of Camper & Nicholsons International commented “we can certainly see an improvement in the demand of superyachts between 90-100m and remain hopeful that 2014 will see the market stabilise and gain momentum based on the flurry of recent events”.

Whilst “2013 continued to be the year where activity was still on the road of recovery, towards the end, we did see an overall boost of sales” continues Récamier. “The industry continues to face challenging times, with many last minute sales concluded, but only time will tell and become more apparent during the forthcoming industry events taking place throughout the year”.

The week running 11 - 17 February saw three sales completed, 15 new central agencies announced, and 19 price reductions made as the market participates in the Miami Boat Show.
