Large yacht sales announced


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.

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.

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.
