Palmer Johnson’s 36.9m build Vitamin has had a €350,000 price reduction and is now listed for €6.9 million with SuperYachtsMonaco and Verpeka Dolling. Vitamin has appeared on the re-sale market before; in August 2012 she was sold by Moran Yacht & Ship for $14.9 million (€11,923,143 at the time of sale), so now representing a 42.1 per cent lower asking price, she is certainly a valuable proposition to the market.
Vitamin is a 2009 build and hull number seven of the PJ 120 semi-custom series. She is built entirely of aluminium and features the interior and exterior design work of world-renowned Italian designers Nuvolari Lenard, with the exterior lines indicative of a performance focused design, yet well-balanced with what is a newly refitted, upgraded and contemporary interior, able to accommodate eight guests over a four-stateroom layout.
She is built to a high specification – the only hull in the series to be fitted with TRAC zero speed stabilisers – and has been regularly updated and maintained regardless of cost. She underwent light refit work in 2013, which included all new interior and exterior furnishings throughout, upgraded LANTIC systems and maintenance to other on board systems. In 2014, she passed her five-year class survey with Lloyd’s Register.
Vitamin’s specifications highlight her intended use, which is short-range cruising at a high maximum speed of 28 knots or cruising at 24 knots. At 223GT, her interior volume is 52GT lower than the average for the 35 – 40m motoryacht fleet, she has a fuel capacity (27,225 litres) that is 6,235 litres under average for the same size range, a narrow beam (7.44m) and a shallow draft (1.98m), which is useful for access to local, shallower waters.
