Ocean Independence sells Paola
by Malcolm MacLean
I call Michael White in the UK office to congratulate him on his and Peter Thompson’s most recent sale, Codecasa’s 34.5m Paola and his only comment is that it should help pay his bills for advertising in Boat International. Actually, he made several other comments, all unrepeatable on a family website. Built in 2000 as Iliki VII, Paola has a master suite, a VIP cabin and two twin cabins. Cruising speed is 12 knots. Mike also confirms that this was an in-house transaction, with no other brokerage houses involved.
