Camper & Nicholsons sells sailing superyacht William Tai with Edmiston
by Malcolm MacLean
Alex Busher at Edmiston tells me he's closed on the sale of the 40.67m sailing yacht William Tai, with Fernando Nicholson at Camper & Nicholsons representing the buyer.
Designed by Ted Fontaine, William Tai is a world cruising sailing yacht launched by Royal Huisman in 1997 as Surama and substantially upgraded in 2009 and 2011
Her original owner was a thoroughly experienced yachtsman whose exacting demands helped created a jewel of a superyacht. William Tai has been continually maintained and in 2011 was extensively upgraded with a new teak deck, complete repaint, fresh interior and exterior upholstery as well as a complete service of all technical systems and rigging.
With accommodation for eight guests in three cabins, William Tai was asking €8.75 million.
