‘Buyers stepping up’ shares Kevin Merrigan of N&J


Renamed Spirit of the C’s, and showcased recently at FLIBS, Felicita West was sold solely through Kevin Merrigan of Northrop & Johnson and will run as the flagship yacht for the sailing charter fleet. Merrigan shares “she’s the perfect yacht for her new family who plan to refit her interior and A/V system, adding new toys which will compliment her extensive mechanical, rigging and exterior refit recently completed at Rybovich”.

Although she was on site at FLIBS a few weeks ago, the contract for sale had been in place and was featured to highlight her charter capabilities. As 2014 begins to wind down, Merrigan thinks it will go down as a success overall. “Our partnerships are working well, the website has been a hit, our marketing team is doing an outstanding job and our sales and charter brokers are, as always, working their hearts out. I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished this year”. Not only this but, he feels the market overall has seen a surge from the post-2008 years. “Sales were up in brokerage and new construction and I think buyers are stepping up and realizing the value in a beautiful, well-maintained yacht” he concludes.

The week running 11 – 17 November saw two sales completed, six new central agencies announced, and six price reductions made.

Superyacht Sales

The largest sale this week was, as mentioned, the 64m 2003 Perini Navi built Felicita West, sold solely through Kevin Merrigan of Northrop & Johnson with a price tag of $25,000,000.
