With the 2014 market firmly on an uptick according to the many brokers we’ve spoken to this year, it appears this year’s show season is bringing much greater hopes than in the past. Mike Newton-Woof of Ventura Yachts recently commented, “the summer market has fared incredibly well. I can’t remember the last time we were this busy!” Sharing similar sentiments to others, Newton-Woof is seeing distinct changes in the market as of late. “There has certainly been an uptick in good quality enquiries, with more yachts being snatched up, the lack of stock and availability on offer now is firming up prices and reducing discounts.”

With MYS opening later this week, he shares he’s feeling very positive indeed. “I’m optimistic that these next few months of shows will be different than past years with plenty of buyers and plenty of options for them to play with”.

The week running 16 - 22 September saw two sales completed, five new central agencies announced, and 11 price reductions made.

Superyacht Sales

The largest sale completed this week was through Mark Elliott of International Yacht Collection with 1982 Pichiotti built 47.5m Piano Bar. She was priced at $3,400,000 with Global Nautica Marine representing the buyer in the transaction.
