Ocean Independence sells sailing yacht Shaman with Grant Saunders

2013-03-08By Malcolm MacLean

Marc Haendle at Ocean Independence tells me he's sold the 26.28m sailing yacht Shaman with Grant Saunders bringing the buyer.

Shaman is a 1997 yacht built in carbon fibre to a Tripp design with hull by Green Marine and fitting-out by Derecktor and this superyacht sloop is exceptionally light and fast, regularly posting speeds above 20 knots.

In addition to her modern hull shape, features such as a carbon fibre rig, retractable spinnaker pole, water ballast and hydraulically lifting keel are incorporated into the design. These features allow for high stability giving greater sailing comfort.

Shaman was asking €1.75 million, tax paid.
