Overnight comes news from Kent Chamberlain at Chamberlain Yachts of a $2 million price cut for the 43.6m motor yacht Starship.
Built in the Netherlands by Van Mill in 1988, she was stripped to the metal during a thorough $14 million refit in 2006 with all new systems and the entire interior replaced. More recently she has had Quantum Zero-Speed stabilisers and new generators fitted. Her sumptuous award-winning Bonville interior accommodates 10 guests in a master, VIP, two doubles and a twin cabin. A popular charter yacht, she carries a Novurania tender and an exhaustive range of watersports toys, and comes complete with a Bell Jet Ranger helicopter.
This latest price reduction comes in the wake of the near-$4 million price cut I reported in October - an indication of how serious the seller is. Starship is now asking $7.95 million.
