9 March 2023• Written by Nick Jeffery

A €1,000,000 price drop has been announced on the 42.8-metre classic sailing yacht Asgard, listed for sale by Marc Haendle at Camper & Nicholsons.

Built in cold-moulded mahogany by German yard Abeking & Rasmussen to a design by Bruce King, she was delivered in 1993 as a classic-style ketch with a very shallow draft of 3.2 metres which allows extensive cruising capabilities.

She has had two notable refits, one in 2014 and another in 2020. The former of which focused on refreshing the yacht's aesthetics, with improvements including new teak deck and new interior design by Rhoades Young. The 2020 refit focused on a complete mechanical and technical overhaul from the thrusters to the main engine.

The asking price of Asgard is now €9,900,000.

Accommodation is for 10 guests in five cabins, comprising a master cabin, two double staterooms and two twin cabins, all with ensuite facilities. Designed for world voyaging as far as Alaska and the South Pacific and New Zealand, her interior have a classically nautical and warm theme.

The broker pointed out her regatta potential and said, "Asgard’s most notable wins have been the Superyacht Cup and the Spirit of Tradition Class of the Rolex Maxi Worlds."

Under power, a single 985hp MTU diesel engine gives the 152GT sailing yacht for sale a range of 2,500 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 10 knots and a maximum speed of 12 knots.

Asgard is lying in Cape Town, South Africa, and is now asking €9,900,000.
