There has been very little new fleet activity to report this week (3rd – 9th July), with only one launch recorded – 77m La Datcha. This Damen build is the 12th longest yacht to be launched or delivered in 2020.

There was a slight upturn in movement however, within the second-hand market, when compared to the week before. Four sales were recorded, although again, this was at the bottom end of the market, at a mean average LOA of 34.1m and an estimated value per vessel sold of €5.0 million (based on The Superyacht Agency’s proprietary in-house valuation model).

There was little correlation between the two vessels coming onto the market, the 30.9m 2004 Custom Line build, Imagine, and a 1989 48.1m Maccarini Brazil-built sailing yacht, Peacemaker. The Superyacht Agency values these new listings at €2.6 million and €1.8 million respectively.

Indeed, using our proprietary model is one of the most powerful tools to evaluate who the market favours at any one time (buyer/seller). Interestingly, if we take new market activity to be represented by new central agencies and new listings, the market valued its new inventory at €73.8 million. Based on the valuation of this same inventory, we place the same inventory at a cumulative value of €73.3 million, further affirming last week’s assertion that stability is returning to the sales market following the sharp slowdown triggered by the COVID-19 crisis in H1.
