ECPY and MYBA superyacht Open Day in Nice on October 9th
by Malcolm MacLean
The ECPY and MYBA are joining forces to host the 11th Superyacht Open Day on Thursday, October 9th, in Nice, France, between 10:30am and 6pm.
The open day takes place in Nice Harbour and features yachts for charter or sale – or both – and always features a good turnout of many very fine yachts. The largest yacht registered so far is the 57 metre sailing yacht Montigne. Built in steel and wood by Turkish yard Aegean Yacht to RINA class, she was delivered in autumn 2009 and is asking $9,950,000 with Worth Avenue Yachts.
Ocean Independence will be displaying their latest listing for sale, the 29 metre sailing yacht Mbolo, built by Dutch yard Jongert to a design by the creative and innovative hand of Tony Castro. Delivered in 2004, she went on to win the 2004 ShowBoats Design Award for best sailing yacht under 40 metres and is asking €4.4 million. Also on show with Worth Avenue Yachts is the 45.72 metre motor yacht Skyfall II. Built by US superyacht yard Palmer Johnson, she was launched in 2007 and recently emerged from a massive seven-month refit to come on the market asking €13 million.
As usual, the day will be rounded off by a networking and cocktail party at 6pm.
