Following his recent sale of 45m Madsummer, Ross Tannock, broker at Moran Yacht & Ship shared with that “the process was actually very straightforward … the buyer knew that there were few quality yachts on the market, and being a Feadship, Madsummer was at the top of his list”. As for the 2014 landscape, Tannock commented that “2013 was strong for brokerage sales; the best in years. This momentum has carried on into the first quarter of 2014 and we expect it to continue through the summer season”. However, he has also noticed that there has been “a decrease in supply of large quality charter yachts … [however] the 94m Lurssen Kismet II will join our charter fleet in September, filling a void in the market”.

The week running 23 – 28 April saw five sales completed, three new central agencies announced, and four price reductions made.
