She has notably large range of 7,000 nautical miles at a 12-knot speed, making her able to comfortably undertake a trans-Atlantic crossing for European cruising should it be required. She is fitted with two Caterpillar 3516B engines with a combined 3,326 total kilowatt output, allowing a cruising speed of 14 knots and a maximum speed of 17 knots. The rich mahogany interior is a product of Italian-based Studio Dellarole and her 6/7 cabin layout allows her to accommodate 16/18 guests.
The Superyacht Intelligence Agency’s data shows that in 2015 there have been 13 yachts listed for sale between 60-70m with an average listing price of €47.56 million, equivalent to $53.98 million (XE Converter), and the average build year of the 13 yachts is 2002, making it a suitable comparison.
Apogee’s price per gross ton breaks down to approximately $35,079 per GT, which is significantly lower than the average of $43,452 per GT for 60-70m new listings in 2015. The only two with a lower price per GT are the 1965 build Sherakhan at $15,261 and CRN’s New Sunrise at $23,736, showing that she is one of the lower priced yachts in this size category currently on the market.
It is also worth noting that Merle Wood & Associates sold Codecasa’s 65m Lady Lau in August, so the build is likely to be familiar territory for the brokerage firm.
