With the industry looking to America for one of the season's opening shows, brokerage news was thin on the ground, with many focussing their attentions on the event. While quiet, there was activity in the larger size bracket, with all of the new listings in the 40m+ category.

The week running 17 - 23 March saw two sales completed, three new central agencies announced, and five price reductions made.

Superyacht Sales

The largest yacht to be sold this week was through Merle Wood & Associates and Luxury Yacht Group, with 1986 Heesen built 36.64m No Comment. She was on the market for $7,900,000 with Camper & Nicholsons International introducing the buyer in the transaction.

The other sale completed this week was through Camper & Nicholsons International again – this time representing both the buyer and seller. Michael Rafferty closed the deal on 1983 Lloyds Ships built 34.14m Sentimental Journey, priced at $590,000.

New Central Agencies

There were only three new central agency listings announced during this quiet news week, compared to last week’s nine.

Jan Jaap Minnema at Fraser Yachts has the largest new listing this week with 2012 Benetti built 43.6m Zita for sale at €10,900,000.
