After closing on the sale of 35m Burger built Cynthia last week, broker at Northrop & Johnson, Wes Sanford shared that “the buyer is extremely happy and looking forward to cruising this summer. Burger’s custom builds rarely come on the market and I have never seen one as meticulously maintained and upgraded as she has been”. She was listed through BYS with Sanford introducing the buyer in the deal.

As for the wider market, Sanford commented that “overall the market momentum right now is very exciting. We are selling larger yachts at a rate far above the three year moving average right now and are seeing no signs of things slowing at the moment.” Sanford concludes, “it’s hard to predict what the autumn will bring but the current trajectory looks very promising”.

The week running 1 – 7 July saw two sales completed, four new central agencies announced, and four price reductions made.
