2014-02-10By Malcolm MacLean

More change now as Kevin Merrigan at Northrop & Johnson sends word that he's taken over the central listing for sale of the 37.18m motor yacht Zeepaard.

Formerly known as Axantha, she was built to Lloyd’s class by France’s JFA yard to a design by Vripack and launched in 2003. In 2011, she completed a refit including a paint job. A proven ocean-going vessel, her owner undertook a three-year cruise around the world on her, covering 50,000 nautical miles and visiting 39 countries.

Zeepaard can accommodate up to 10 guests in five cabins laid out as a master suite and four double staterooms. All have en suite bathroom facilities and she has been immaculately maintained by professional crew. Twin 475hp Caterpillar engines give her a cruising speed of 13 knots and a range of 7,000 nautical miles.

Zeepaard will be available to view during the Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show, lying at the nearby Miami Beach Marina. Her asking price is €11.75 million VAT paid.
