Currency switch and price cut on sailing yacht Selene at Camper & Nicholsons
by Malcolm MacLean
A call to Gaston Lees-Buckley at Camper & Nicholsons brings news of a price switch from euros to dollars on his joint listing with Alex Lees-Buckley, the 56m sailing yacht Selene, meaning an effective price cut of €5 million.
Built by Perini Navi in 2007 and boasting a Ron Holland design, her sleek lines and overhanging flying bridge are hallmarks of their aesthetic style. Her aluminium construction assures speed with uncompromised comfort.
Selene features a very elegant innovation in her transom, which hydraulically opens and reveals a staircase ending with a wide swimming platform for guest access to the sea. Her modern Art Deco-inspired interior won the best sailing yacht interior award at the World Superyacht Awards 2008 and she also featured in the 2008 edition of The Superyachts book.
Selene is now down from €25 million to $25 million.
