Feadship’s 52m Rasselas is now jointly listed with Burgess and Peter Hurzeler from Ocean Independence. The 1994 build is on the market with an asking price of $19.95 million and is currently based in Fort Lauderdale.

Rasselas was built by the same discerning and knowledgeable client who subsequently built the 62m Positive Carry (formerly Rasselas), overseen by the same experienced build team. Rasselas boasts the strong Feadship pedigree with naval architecture from De Voogt and the interior design eye of John Munford.

Munford has 10 Feadship projects to his name in total. His style is elegant and classic and his in-depth knowledge of materials and furniture has seen him work with some of the world’s top shipyards. Rasselas has been designed to accommodate 12 guests over five staterooms.

M/Y Rasselas

She has been well maintained and had regular refit work to ensure spotless condition for re-sale. Most notably and most recently, she underwent her 20-year Lloyd’s survey at Derecktor shipyard in 2014, which included a full hull repaint and comprehensive engineering work.

She also underwent substantial work in Autumn 2015. Amongst the work included was: a hull sandblast, teak decking repairs, Quantum stabiliser removal and replacements, and maintenance/replacements for engine parts and other internal systems.

The Superyacht Intelligence Annual Report 2015 showed that the average age of Feadships sold in 2014 was 20 years and 10 months, at an average LOA of 54m, and Feadships consisted of 9.3 per cent of total re-sales that year. The average age of Feadships sold in 2015 was 32 years and the average LOA was 43.8m. We can expect Rasselas, at 22 years old, to garner sufficient interest as the demand and popularity for the older Feadships is clear.
