Diego Marroquin, head honcho at the New York office of Edmiston & Company, tells me that he has signed the exclusive worldwide central agency for sale of Feadship's 60m Paraffin. Launched in 2001 for owners who run a very successful candle-making company - hence the name - she has proved to be a successful charter yacht. Built by Feadship's Royal Van Lent yard and refitted in 2005 and 2006, she has a 6,500 nautical mile range at 12 knots, making her a true world cruising voyager. An unusual design feature is an upper-deck gym, complete with a small observation "bubble" on top. The interior, decorated in a classic English style, accommodates 12 guests cared for by 16 crew.
