Fils de Grace sold by BCR and AB Yachts
by Malcolm MacLean
Hearing that the 54.75m superyacht Fils de Grace has been sold, I contact her central agent, David Price of BCR Yachts and he confirms that the transaction is completed, with Jean Jacques Soete of AB Yacht acting for the buyer. Currently in the middle of a major rebuild, she was built in 1968 by E.J. Smit & Zoon as a cable laying vessel and has already had €3.4 million spent on her rebuild. Planned to accommodate 12 guests, she still needs a total interior fit-out, electrical rewiring, audio-visual systems and so on. Fils de Grace was asking €4 million and her new owner plans to complete the work at a Turkish yard.
