$1 million price reduction on superyacht Marco Polo at Fraser
by Malcolm MacLean
A call to Josh Gulbranson at Fraser Yachts in Fort Lauderale over the weekend brings news of a $1 million drop in the price of his central listing, the 44.8m motor yacht Marco Polo.
A high-quality, long-range explorer motor yacht designed by the UK's Ron Holland, she was built in China by Cheoy Lee in 2007 and is Lloyds classed and MCA compliant. With a distinctive green steel hull, this superyacht has a GRP superstructure and accommodates nine guests in a master, VIP, double, twin and single cabins. Two independent Caterpillar propulsion packages give a range of 6,000 nautical miles at 10 knots.
Marco Polo won the 2008 Showboats International Design Award in the 40m+ class and is now asking $20.5 million.
