I've been hearing rumours for a while now that Yachting Partners International were to create a new Sailing Yacht arm of YPI brokerage and today Mark Duncan confirms that this has now happened, especially after the company recently listed two Royal Huisman sailing superyachts, the 52m Meteor and 46m William Tai.
And, as a way to celebrate the news, Will Bishop in Monaco has sold a new 30m Southern Wind 100 Raised Saloon sailing yacht to be built at the South African yard.
