Another price drop on sailing yacht Lochiel at Northrop & Johnson

13 September 2012By Malcolm MacLean

Ann Avery at Northrop & Johnson sends word of a further $855,000 price cut on the 31.7m sailing yacht Lochiel, making a drop of $1.3 million so far this year.

She’s the well-known ex-Coco Chanel, designed by William Garden and built by Alloy Yachts in 1985. In addition to sea kindliness, she offers an enormous on-deck pilothouse and outside lounge areas.

Below deck Lochiel has three staterooms plus an office for owner/guests, a raised saloon, galley and crew quarters forward. The stand-up, walk-in engine room is a real advantage, encouraging good maintenance.

Her current owners bought her for a five-year journey around the globe. While a great platform to begin with, along the way they improved the efficiency of some systems, upgraded others, and maintained her well, culminating with a refit at the Delta yard in Seattle in 2010.

Lying in Antigua, Lochiel is now down from $2.85 million to $1,995,000.
