Fraser Yachts sells Capella C


In five days this summer, Fraser Yachts sold the 195-foot (59m) M/Y Capella C sold by broker Richard Earp in Monaco, a 145-foot (44m) yacht under construction at Crescent Yachts in Canada sold by Neal Esterly in San Diego, the 125-foot (38m) Sunseeker M/Y Evil Zana by Antoine Larricq in Monaco, the 116-foot (35m) Benetti M/Y Paradigm by broker Michael Selter in San Diego, and the 89-foot (26m) M/Y Elena B built by Cantieri di Pisa and sold by broker Oscar Romano.

“This is clearly excellent news not just for us but for the industry as a whole,” said Fabio Ermetto, chairman of Fraser Yachts. “There are a number of economic concerns at the moment but our brokers are continuing to work hard and close deals. What is especially important for us is that these sales are taking place all over the world and for all different types and sizes of yachts.”

The brokerage has also sold the 293-foot (88.8m) M/Y Illusion, built by Pride Mega Yachts and the largest superyacht to be built in China, by broker Jan Jaap Minnema. It is due to be delivered in October 2015.
