Update on the sale of superyacht Tu Moana
by Malcolm MacLean
Jonathan Beckett at Burgess asks me to mention that they worked closely with Bertrand Vogele at SeaMinds to find a buyer for the 69m mini cruise ship Tu Moana.
A joint listing with Yachting Partners International, she was built in 2003 by Australian yard Austal Ships.
She was originally built with accommodation for up to a maximum of 78 passengers with 37 spacious twin/double guest cabins with en suite facilities and large picture windows.
Plentiful and well-conceived deck spaces include a main-deck restaurant arranged around a central buffet with a covered outdoor dining/relaxation area on the aft deck. An enclosed lounge bar and entertainment area are on the upper deck, and for outdoor entertainment there is a Jacuzzi spa and bar area on the large sun deck and a four-person spa and built-in seating on the foredeck.
Tu Moana was asking €6.5 million and her new owner plans an extensive refit.
