Another price cut on JFA expedition yacht Zeepaard
by Malcolm MacLean
The 37.18 metre expedition motor yacht Zeepaard, listed for sale by Kevin Merrigan and Wes Sanford at Northrop & Johnson, has had a further $950,000 price drop.
Zeepard was built by France’s JFA yard to a design by Vripack and launched in 2003 as Axantha. Lloyds classed, in 2011 she completed a full refit including a paint job. A proven ocean-going vessel, her owner undertook a three-year cruise around the world on her, travelling 50,000 nautical miles and visiting 39 countries. This circumnavigation was rewarded with a prize as joint winner of the Voyager's Award at the 2014 World Superyacht Awards.
Accommodation on board Zeepaard is for up to 10 guests in five cabins laid out as a master suite and four double cabins, and all have en suite bathroom facilities. She has been immaculately maintained inside and out by a professional crew and twin 475hp Caterpillar engines give her a cruising speed of 13 knots and a range of 7,000 nautical miles.
Lying in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Zeepaard is now down from $10,900,000 to $9,950,000.
