Merle Wood slashes superyacht Fortunato's price
by Malcolm MacLean
I'm beginning to understand why the Americans call this time of the year 'Fall,' as superyacht asking prices continue to plummet - the latest being Merle Wood and Peter Croke's central agency, Feadship's 62m Fortunato as her price is slashed by a cool $10 million.
Built by the Van Lent yard in 2000 to Lloyds class and MCA compliant, this superyacht has every conceivable extra including zero speed stabilisers, a Jacuzzi, elevator to all decks and a helipad. Upgraded in 2007, she sleeps 14 guests in a master and no less than six double staterooms and has a range of 5,800 nautical miles at 13 knots. Formerly asking $69.9 million, Fortunato is now priced at $59.9 million.
