€1 million price drop on sailing yacht Hetairos at Ocean Independence and Edmiston

Marc Haendle at Ocean Independence tells me of a €1 million price cut on the 42.85m sailing yacht Hetairos, a joint listing with Bill Sanderson at Edmiston & Company.

Built by Abeking & Rasmussen in 1993 to a design by Bruce King with an interior by Andrew Winch, she’s a classic wooden ketch of the highest pedigree, designed and built for world cruises and superyacht racing. Still owned by the sailing enthusiast who commissioned her build, Hetairos has been cruising to the four corners of the world, including the Amazon, Alaska, New Zealand, Madagascar, Greenland, Spitsbergen and the South Pacific. The extremely shallow draft of 3.2m allows great flexibility for cruising, while with the centreboard down the yacht has tremendous sailing performance.

Accommodation is for 10 guests in a full beam master suite plus two double and two twin cabins.

Lying in Valencia, Spain, Hetairos is now asking €8.9 million.
