Fraser Yachts announces the sale of Surprise and Aviva, as 11 sales in March become 13
by Malcolm MacLean
Following my blog yesterday about sales reported in March 2009, Patrick Coote, Marketing Manager of Fraser Yachts in Monaco, sends me word that two central agencies on the sales book were sold last month. The first is Surprise, a 35m motor yacht launched by McMullen & Wing in 2001. Co-central agents in the sale were Allan Jouning in Auckland and David Legrand in Monaco. Surprise was specifically designed for a dual role: both for serious expedition adventure cruising and luxurious comfort when simply cruising. She has an excellent charter record centred around Fiji and the South Pacific and sleeps eight or nine guests in four double cabins. The second sale, Monte Fino’s 33m Aviva, was a central agency of Patrick McConnell in the San Diego office. Built in 1996 and refitted in 2007, she can easily be run by a crew of only two and sleeps up to 10 guests in four cabins.
