Large yacht sales announced

Dec 17, 2012 by Guest Writer

Freedom Marine has sold the 122-foot M/Y Atlantide owned by Tom Perkins. Broker David Campbell represented the buyer and seller.

Perkins also owns the Perini Navi S/Y Andromeda la Dea,  the 137-foot Herreshoff schooner S/Y Mariette and his former 289-foot S/Y Maltese Falcon.

Atlantide was launched in 1930 by Philip and Sons in Dartmouth, UK, as Caleta. Perkins acquired her in 1998 and she underwent a complete rebuild to bring her back to her originally designed purpose as a gentleman’s motor yacht and tender to a racing yacht.

Atlantide was asking 5 million euros.

The Rodriguez Group has sold the first in its 50m all-aluminum line, the 165-foot Azul, a collaboration between the company and Italyachts Shipyard.

The yacht is powered by Rolls Royce hydrojets and two MTU 2600Hp engines, and it can reach 30 knots with a draught not exceeding 1.75m. The yacht is expected to be delivered in 2014.

Merle Wood & Associates has sold the 110-foot Intermarine M/Y Lady A and the 102-foot Broward M/Y Liquidity.

The firm has added the following central agency listings for sale: the 154-foot Feadship M/Y Charade, the 150-foot M/Y Status Quo by Richmond Yachts, the 124-foot Hakvoort M/Y Perle Bleue (in a joint listing with Denison & Daves), the 116-foot M/Y Deep Blue (in a joint with Allied Marine), and the 88-foot Sunseeker M/Y Selene (in a joint with Atlantic Yacht & Ship).

New to its charter fleet include the 132-foot Westship M/Y Northern Lights, the 125-foot Palmer Johnson M/Y Milk & Honey, and the 87-foot M/Y Watershed II.

RJC Yachts has sold the 130-foot (39.6m) Northern Marine M/Y Magic (Moran Yacht & Ship represented the buyer) and the 104-foot Broward M/Y PG’s Jester (Frank Gordon Yacht Sales represented the buyer and Bob Cury at RJC Yachts Sales represented the seller).

The brokerage has hired broker Michael Strassel. Previously, Strassel spent 21 years at Hatteras of Lauderdale and Allied Marine and 10 years at HMY Yacht Sales.

Fraser Yachts has recently sold the 121-foot (37m) M/Y Fusion built by Peri Yachts and sold by broker David Legrand in Monaco, and the 95-foot (29m) M/Y Safari built by Nordlund and sold by brokers Patrick McConnell and Neal Esterly in California.

New central agency listings for sale include the 193-foot (59m) M/Y Capella C built by Scheepswert in 1968 for $5.8 million, the 99-foot (30m) Benetti M/Y Jazz of Monaco for 4.9 million euros, and the 91-foot (27.8m) M/Y Oyster built by Peri Yachts for 1.8 million euros.

IYC sold the 108-foot Westship/Westport M/Y Special Issues VIII after the Ft. Lauderdale show

Florida-based Northrop & Johnson recently sold the 92-foot M/Y Aphrodite I by broker Joost Goverts.
The brokerage has hired Charter Director Fiona Maureso and Charter Manager Andrea Pothier to lead the firm’s charter division in the South of France. Charter Broker Solenn De Braux remains in the office.
Maureso is a native of England and worked as a deck/stew on a 40m yacht before becoming a charter broker with Peter Insull and Yachting Partners International. She serves as vice president of MYBA and is chairwoman of its IT panel.

Pothier is from Montreal, but moved to the South of France after university and built a career in luxury marketing for high-end real estate and a yacht design agency. She also worked as charter manager with YPI.
