Sailing yacht Awol Again is now asking almost half of her 2009 price
Price reductions in the millions of dollars or euros on superyachts frequently make the headlines but in many cases they represent a small proportion of the original asking price. Here we present a selection of seriously for sale yachts with significant percentage price drops.
Acadia | 2003 | 25.60m | $3,500,000
In August 2009 the price of the 25.6m motor yacht Acadia was reduced from $8,542,000 to €5.9 million and now, after a series of reductions, she is down to $3.5 million, a massive 59% discount to the original price.
Her listing broker, Mark Elliott at International Yacht Collection says, ‘Acadia is the Rolls Royce of yachts and feels like a country home inside. Built for an owner/operator she is fast and very roomy.’
Acadia was delivered by Lyman Morse in July 2003. This spectacular yacht was built for an owner who was intimately involved with her design and construction on a daily basis with innovative ideas challenging some of the industry’s most proven standards. She sleeps six guests in a master, double and two twins and her planing hull is capable of a 19 knot cruising speed.
Awol Again | 2004 | 27.26m | €900,000
Jim Acher at Ocean Independence has the 27.26m sailing yacht AWOL Again listed for sale and says, ‘She came onto the market in May 2007 at €1,575,000 and after a massive refit in 2008, was increased to €1.75 million in 2009; she is now €900,000, so I make that a 49% reduction from 2009.’
Built by Turkey’s Agantur yard in 2004 AWOL Again combines the style of a traditional yacht with state-of-the-art equipment. This very successful charter vessel has been consistently maintained with no expense spared. With steel construction, proven transatlantic capability, massive volume she has been immaculately maintained. MCA compliant, AWOL Again accommodates eight guests in four cabins.
Paolyre | 2008 | 32.7m | €4,400,000
Since coming on the market in 2009, the price of the 32.7m gentleman’s motor yacht Paolyre has been reduced from $7.9 million to $4.4 million, a 44% drop.
Her broker, Eric Trupheme at Ocean Independence says, ‘The owner of Paolyre is very keen to sell and even at her new price is willing to consider offers.’
Built by OCEA in 2008, she accommodates 10 guests in five cabins. Her aft deck features a seating area with a large table for eight guests, while the upper deck is covered by a fixed sunroof and has six sofas and four dining tables, plus a grill, bar and spa pool. Paolyre is French commercial classed and MCA compliant.
Once Around | 2004 | 28.96m | $2,400,000
Josh Gulbranson at Fraser Yachts has the 28.96m motor yacht Once Around for sale and says of her, ‘Since Once Around was brought to the brokerage market, we have brought the asking price down by 43% in price adjustments. The current asking price is $2.4 million, down from an original asking price of $4.2 million.
Once Around was built by Sunseeker in 2003 and underwent an extensive refit in 2009. She has had her original owner since delivery and has been extremely well kept, with many updates made in 2009. Her spacious saloon and aft deck make her a wonderful vessel for relaxing comfortably with an overnight guest party of eight and she offers the speed to cover ground when time is limited.
Far Niente | 1997 | 35.36m | $4.8 million
The 35.36m motor yacht Far Niente is listed for sale with Michael Rafferty at Camper & Nicholsons International who says, ‘We dropped the price again recently, the fifth reduction in five months. Now asking $4.8 million, that represents a 30% drop in price since we listed her in November of 2011.’
Far Niente is considered to be the finest Hatteras ever to leave the factory because its specifications and construction were carefully overseen by a knowledgeable owner and captain. Upon completion in 1997, the boat travelled to the Palmer Johnson yard in Savannah, Georgia, and a very high level of finish was completed on the interior. Far Niente has never been chartered and she completed a major refit in 2011.
