Currency switch on superyacht April Fool at Burgess and Merle Wood
by Malcolm MacLean
I've reported several price updates on Feadship's 61m motor yacht April Fool recently and here's a new twist as simultaneous emails arrive from joint listing agents Burgess and Francois van Well at Merle Wood & Associates of a currency switch from Euros to dollars.
Built in 2006 with opulent accommodation for 10 guests in five VIP staterooms, April Fool has always been a private superyacht with just one owner. Among her many special features is a five person elevator serving four decks. In its review of this yacht Boat International magazine concluded: “An exceptionally fine, gracious and comfortable family yacht, superbly put together by the Royal Van Lent yard.”
Lying in Palma de Mallorca, April Fool was asking €49 million and is now priced at $69.5 million.
