Editors Comments: Week Ending 27/02/2015

Albeit a statement which is vague in nature, the first report to typify such success stories was Worth Avenue Yachts’ triple bill sale of La Sirena, Domino and Alexandra V. This rapid sale succession came from one of the fast growing brokerage firms of recent years, while the next report to affirm the growth of the brokerage market in U.S. originated from Moran Yacht & Ship.

The global brokerage house successfully sold the new Hakvoort project Golden Age, a truly beautiful yacht which, personally, I greatly look forward to seeing emerge from the yard at the end of this year. This isn’t only an exciting project, but the 3rd sale for Moran and the largest yacht sale year-to-date. Northrop & Johnson also announced the sale of motor yacht Aquila, a grand example of Benetti’s Italian flair and elegance in design.

FYI offered a different style of success report with the announcement that their fleet is expanding in both number and overall length. With a bold move into the superyacht sector ahead, the future of the brand is bright - but the future of the brokerage sector in the U.S. is looking brighter.

Moving elsewhere in the world, the Dubai Boat Show will be opening next week, bringing with it the possibility of more announcements.

The AMELS 272: A Marriage Of Steel & Aluminium

Amels - the luxury yacht arm of the Damen Group - successfully completed the heaviest crane lift ever at its yard in Vlissingen. This complex procedure resulted in the marriage of the 83m hull and 120 tonne aluminium superstructure of the AMELS 272 superyacht.

This bonding of aluminium and steel is now being carefully welded by skilled craftsmen inside the 200m dock, where it will stay until completion. A great example of AMELS’ mastery of modern Dutch yacht building techniques for large superyachts, the AMELS 272 is the brand’s largest project yet. We’ll be bringing you more information as it emerges. 

M/Y Achilles: Bespoke Cruising From Sanlorenzo

“Achilles is the tenth new vessel commissioned by her owner and the uniqueness and knowledge applied to the design concept and transformed into reality by designer Francesco Paszkowski and Sanlorenzo,” explains Mark. “This is evident in every inch of her 150 proud feet of overall length. The owner attended the factory 35 times during the build and every bespoke design “piece” was hand picked during the collaborative effort.”

“Whilst no two Sanlorenzo Yachts ever built are the same ‘Achilles’ has become a stand out in creating a unique owners vessel that allows the nine working crew to move like shadows over her 4 levels providing total privacy whilst the boss and guests are on board. Having personally spent considerable time on board it is immediately evident that the crew are not only committed to Achilles but also the owner, they are happy, vibrant and proud that she shines in every area, even those that most owners or buyers would never see. Achilles has spent the winter in Italy being fastidiously maintained and presented in turn key, fully serviced condition ready for her new summer owners.”

Every deck provides a sanctuary to suit a particular social setting, but particularly the Fly deck with its oversize BBQ, 12 person dining, Jacuzzi, sunbed and lounging areas making Achilles an entertainers delight.

The position and layout of the galley with her twin electric doors providing entry and exit is functionality personified and allows seamless crew transitions to upper decks via internal hidden stairs and dumbwaiters.

“Achilles has never been chartered, but for any potential buyer this London Flagged 499 Gross Tonne, golden hulled motor yacht has been built to MCA LY2 and if entered into commercial flag would become a highly sort after charter vessel. With a price reduction this week to just €19.8 million, the seller now committed to moving on to his next bigger vessel project has shown an asking price that allows a substantial saving on a new build and commits a vessel to the market place that will sell quickly. All offers will be submitted.” 

Tony Castro Unveils New Global Explorer Superyacht

Designed from the outset as a private global exploration vessel, this 68m yacht is for adventurers who want to circle the globe. Her sturdy and heavily outfitted design can withstand any weather conditions whilst providing spacious and luxurious accommodation.

Its distinctive profile holds clear purpose, drawing from the heritage of the offshore supply vessels and long range fishing ships – designs borne out of the worst weather that nature can throw at them. This is a robust ship of proven seakeeping ability combined with a super-efficient hull, created using Tony Castro’s well established Naval Architecture credentials coupled with the latest CFD techniques. Resulting in greater efficiency and vaster cruising range to explore further than typical yachts of this size.

This is a modern ship, but with rugged utilitarian aesthetics. Closer inspection will reveal a modern elegance. With the geometric clean lines and architectural glazing, she will present a commanding presence whenever entering port. With a large carrying capacity for toys and tenders, she is capable of carrying a helicopter in a climate controlled garage, twin limo tenders, car, submarine, jet skis, paddleboards and a variety of inflatables water toys.

Offering amazing levels of comfort and a chic interior in a style to suit the owner, her unique layout holds a full beam enclosed observation deck with opening roof, cinema, beach club, sauna, scuba diving pool, gymnasium, pool, wine cellar and ample space to accommodate a total of 12 guests.

Many of her design features are intended to make exploring a real pleasure, able to see and observe the environment you travel through with large windows providing great visibility to the outside, making you feel at one with the environment.

New Legislation Gives Spanish Yacht Charter New Life

This could be a new dawn for the Spanish superyacht market as Patricia Bullock, Director of Network Marine Consultants, comments; “2014 was a year to remember, giant steps were taken and the brakes came off Spain’s yachting sector. We are now open for fair and commercially-viable business and the industry has started to flourish. Right now at Network Marine Consultants we are busier than ever with plenty of boats going through the process of obtaining their first licence for charter in the Balearic Islands, many of them superyacht sized. Word is spreading, trust is being earned, and we should see a busy summer charter season.”

From a base of absolute zero in 2013, Network Marine Consultants administered no less than 33 superyacht charter licences in 2014. Taking renewals out of the equation, these brand new licences were for 25 motor yachts, four sailing yachts and four catamarans, up to a substantial 52 metres LOA.

Patricia continues, “It’s these superyacht statistics that prove that the new legislation is working and give us hope that the Spanish superyacht charter fleet will continue to expand. Worldwide yachting association, MYBA, estimated back in 2011 that there were around 802 large yachts for rent in the Mediterranean of which only 17 were available in Spain. Taking only our endeavours into account, we’ve already managed to increase this figure by 200%, bringing clients with high purchasing power to the Islands. Spain should welcome with open arms these MLC-compliant, eco-friendly, tax-legal, efficiently-run enterprises that generate employment and economic prosperity to the tune of an estimated five million US dollars spent each year by a 50-metre yacht.”

Official figures from Spanish marine trade association, ANEN, back this sentiment. In its 2014 review, it stated that Spain’s recreational yachting market grew almost ten per cent after six years of decline. Director of ANEN, Carlos Sanlorenzo, believes the market has stabilized post-crisis and attributes much of the growth to the removal of the 15-metre ceiling for charter yachts claiming exemption from matriculation tax.

Supporting Network Marine Consultants statistics, ANEN found the greatest increase in yacht registrations happened in the higher LOAs, with the 16-metre-plus market (52-foot) growing by 48.2% in 2014. Taking into account just charter boat registrations of 16-metre-plus, this figure jumps higher to 157.14% year-on-year. The Balearics still dominate Spain’s recreational yachting market taking 14.78% of boat registrations in 2014 nudging Barcelona into second place with 10.75%.

Worth Avenue Yachts Typify America's Renewed Confidence

La Sirena
Measuring 42.98m (141’) is a Christensen-built motor yacht with classic American style and expert construction spanning back to 2000. With an updated refit taking place in 2013, this motor yacht is immaculately kept and an understandable sale, with help from Dean Anthony of Allied Marine.

Domino
Built by another iconic U.S. builder, Domino is a Westport yacht through and through. This pedigree motor yacht was built in 2006 but underwent a major refit last year - making the (34.13) 112’ Domino a stylish, kept and steady new purchase. This yacht was sold in conjunction with Jamie MacGregor of MacGregor Yachts.

Alexandra V
The Princess-built motor yacht is the third successful sale from Worth Avenue Yachts recently and adds to the notion of a progressive U.S. market; however, the 29.64m (97’3”) 2009 motor yacht is a motivated seller in itself. This boat was sold in conjunction with Dennis Frederiksen of Fraser Yachts.
