Currency switch on sailing superyacht Inmocean at Denison
by Malcolm MacLean
Built by New Zealand yard Fitzroy Yachts to a design by Dubois Naval Architects, Inmocean was delivered in 2008 as a classic modern sloop. Lloyds classed and MCA compliant, an interior by Adam Lay Studio has accommodation for six guests in an owner’s suite forward and two twin cabins, all of them with full en suite bathroom facilities. Constructed in aluminium with a carbon fibre rig by Southern Spars, Inmocean was a finalist at the 2008 World Superyacht Awards.
Earlier in 2014, a four month refit in New Zealand saw her receive a complete topside repaint, new interior upholstery throughout – including wall coverings, carpeting and window treatments – new soft goods, new exterior cushions, full servicing of all machinery including engines and generators, and the deck equipment was serviced where needed.
Under power, a single 600hp Caterpillar engine gives her a cruising speed of 11 knots and the price of Inmocean is down from $11.75 million to €8.5 million.
