Yachtzoo has completed its fourth sale in six days, amassing 162.5m of sold superyacht. Three of the finalised deals were completed in-house with the Yachtzoo team representing both the buyer and the seller.
On 12 May, the 50m Heesen vessel, M/Y Galactica, was sold in an in-house deal for €19.5 million. She is part of the successful ‘Pelican Bow’ series and was the Dutch yard’s flagship vessel at the time of her launch. Galactica is an all-aluminium design with a semi-displacement hull. She features the naval architecture and exterior work of Heesen’s in house team, with Omega Architects providing a contemporary interior with large living spaces as per the owner’s request.
On 16 May, 32m M/Y Battleship was sold in an in-house deal for $3.2 million. Battleship was built in GRP by Lazzara Yachts and delivered in 2003. She is able to accommodate 10 guests in four cabins, which can become five with the addition of a convertible private office. The interior is high-gloss African cherry wood, with fine carpets, custom fabrics and granite. She is currently based in Fort Lauderdale.
On 18 May, the 43.9m sportfish motoryacht Marlena was sold in an in-house deal for $4.9 million. Upon delivery in 1998, the all-aluminium build, then measuring 38.4m, was the largest sportfish yacht in the world. She was built by Trinity Yachts for an avid fisherman, who sold her in 2003, before the second owner took her to Spain for an extensive refit, including a six metre hull extension. The slender design’s planing hull and low gross tonnage permits for a cruising speed of 23 knots and a maximum speed of 26 knots, powered by her two Paxman 12V P185 engines.
Also on 18 May, 36.6m M/Y Aspen Alternative was sold for a final asking price of $4.75 million, with the Yachtzoo team representing the seller and Talbot Freeman & Associates introducing the buyer. She was delivered by Sovereign Yachts in 2002 and features the exterior work of Setzer Design Group with the interior design of Patrick Knowles. She is a popular yacht for charter, with spaces primed for entertainment over the expansive flybridge and main deck aft.
