Bob Schutte at V-Yachting advises this morning of a further price reduction for the 1982 Benetti, Blue Gold. The new asking price is €10 million down from the previous price of US$18.9 million, representing a drop of US$4 million. “We have to be realistic about the price,” comments Schutte.
In addition, there is the offer of upgrading refits with an estimated value of €1 million. “For example, the hull needs to be repainted and this can be done in a colour of the new owner's choice,” explains Schutte.
Rebuilt by RDM in Holland in 1999, the 50 metre, three-deck ketch has accommodation for eight guests plus two Pullman berths. Blue Gold is currently lying in Australia.
