Sailing yachts top this week


With the summer months coming into full swing now, the sales market has shown little signs of slowing down. Following consistent sales week on week, the close of Q2 is looking positive with many brokers recently commenting to SuperyachtNews.com on the various reasons for this success. For the majority, it is finally seeing a return to appropriate market pricing for today's clients (and not the pre-2008 dynamic). While for others, it's a matter of the over-saturated market of years gone by finally evening out. Time will tell if the 2014 summer season will see a similar spike in activity to last year and SuperyachtNews.com will be on hand to keep you informed.

The week running 20 - 27 May saw five sales completed, two new central agencies announced, 10 price reductions made and one price increase.

The largest sale this week was through Michael Rafferty and Andrew LeBuhn at Camper & Nicholsons International with 45.7m Hilarium. Completed in 1991 at Feadship, she was priced at $9,650,000 with Expedition Yachts representing the buyer.

Alex Busher of Edmiston has sold 1997 Royal Huisman built 40.68m William Tai. She was priced at €6,900,000, with Camper & Nicholsons International introducing the buyer in the transaction.
