‘2014 was hard work with few commitments, but 2015 promising’ says Joost Goverts of N&J


Following what he describes as a “long, hard year with few commitments”, Joost Goverts, director and broker at Northrop & Johnson Palma seems much more hopeful for the year ahead. “I think it’s dangerous to look further forward than May or June this year, given various global markets' instability, but the end of 2014 was much more positive, with three deals teed up for this year so far”.

An experienced yachtsmen, Goverts said the new owner of Mirabella I took the leap into the larger size bracket when he purchased her. “He’s had somewhat smaller yachts, but was attracted by the vast amount of space, strong construction and had an attraction to possibly placing her on the charter market at some point. His main drive however was to be able to enjoy family trips in great comfort”.

The week running 18 – 23 February saw five sales completed, three new central agencies announced, seven price reductions made and one yacht donated to the International Seakeepers Society.

Superyacht Sales

The largest yacht sold this week was through Worth Avenue Yachts and Allenby & Associates, with 2009 Christensen-built 43m La Sirena, priced at $8,995,000, with Allied Marine representing the broker in the transaction.

Dennis Frederiksen at Fraser Yachts, alongside Neo Yachting, have sold 2009 Princess-built 29.64m Alexandra V, on the market at €3,800,000 with Worth Avenue Yachts introducing the buyer in the deal.

Joost Goverts of Northrop & Johnson has sold 1992 Concorde-built 40m Mirabella I. She was on the market for €2,195,000 with Polaris Yachting bringing the buyer.
