On 7 April, two 45m+ builds came onto the market. SuperYachtsMonaco and Worth Avenue Yachts have announced a new joint central agency in the form of 45.7m M/Y Grey Matters. She has been listed with an asking price of €14 million and is located in the Caribbean before she makes her way over to the Mediterranean for mid-May.

The second new central agency listing is Heesen’s M/Y Lady Petra, which is for sale with Ocean Independence and Fraser Yachts for an asking price of €22.5 million. She is currently based in Spain and available for inspections.

Grey Matters is the ultimate high performance sport yacht, featuring a distinctively sleek profile. She was delivered in 2007 by Palmer Johnson to a Nuvolari Lenard design.

With a semi-displacement hull, she provides an equilibrium between efficiency and performance. At 395 GT she offers more stability than the majority of planing hulls, which average 361 GT in the live 42.5 – 47.5m motoryacht fleet. In addition, she is roughly 100 GT smaller than most displacement hulls in this segment – that are refined to stay below 500 GT – adding the ‘sport’ element to her profile.

Further to being continually upgraded, Grey Matters had a substantial refit in 2014/2015. The work included: a new engine configuration, fresh paint, new teak decks, three new Seakeeper Gyro stabilisers, a reconfigured sun deck that incorporates a Jacuzzi, wet bar, new AV, BBQ and open-air conditioning. The interior has also been entirely upgraded and refinished.

Vanquish and Vitamin, two builds in Palmer Johnson's smaller PJ 120 series, are also for sale with SuperYachtsMonaco, with the latter being reduced in price earlier this year.

47m Lady Petra – the second new central agency listing – was delivered in 2012 and is the Dutch yard’s eighth steel full displacement yacht. She was commissioned as a family boat for the founder of Heesen.

Her exterior work was completed by Omega Architects and boasts 240 square meters of deck space over three levels, with an 85 square meter sun deck. The spaces harmonise with the exceptionally well designed and simplistic interior work of Bannenberg & Rowell Design.

With the master suite on the upper deck, the main deck has space for a full-beam media lounge (below).

There is accommodation for 12 guests on board over six staterooms (four doubles and two twins), comprising a master suite that occupies the entire aft half of the upper deck and also features a private deck. The suite has a breakfast lounge with a custom built lacquered table that rotates through 180 degrees.

As with all of Heesen’s late models, Lady Petra’s hull is optimised for fuel efficiency and allows for an impressive range of over 4,000 nautical miles.
