With the team currently processing some sales, Turner shares the future remains uncertain. “I fear the current market activity may not last, however varying global markets, including a low euro at the moment, may help move things along”.
The week running 24 - 30 March saw three sales completed, 10 new central agencies announced, and nine price reductions made.
Two sales from Peter Thompson at Worth Avenue Yachts this week: the largest yacht sold was the 1993 Oceanco built 49.8m Anedigmi, priced at €8,500,000 and completed in house; while the sale of 2007 Palmer Johnson built 45.7m Skyfall II was sold with a price tag of $13,000,000 with SuperYachtsMonaco bringing the buyer.
As mentioned, the final sale this week was through Simon J Turner of Northrop & Johnson with 1990 Renaissance Yachts built 35.05m Signe, priced at €1,600,000 with Dolphin Yachts introducing the buyer in the transaction.
