Mark Duncan at Yachting Partners International has been promising me this news for awhile and here it comes as company CEO Bertrand Vogele signs the 69m mini-cruise ship Tu Moana for sale in a joint listing with Burgess.
Built in 2003 by Australian yard Austal Ships, Tu Moana represents an opportunity to purchase a proven vessel ripe for conversion into either a luxury mini-cruise ship or a unique luxury yacht.
Says Bertrand Vogele: 'Tu Moana is the perfect project for an owner who wants a large, well-built 69-metre, 1,697 ton vessel offered at a very low price but with unlimited potential when it comes to refitting her. For the right owner, she is an amazing investment.'
Originally Bureau Veritas classed, Tu Moana is presently out of class and can now be seen in Tahiti, asking €8.5 million.
