Price of motor yacht Acadia continues its slide at IYC

2012-04-26By Malcolm MacLean

A call to Mark Elliott at International Yacht Collection confirms yet another price drop, this time of $200,000, on his central listing, the 25.6m motor yacht Acadia.

Built by Lyman Morse in 2003 to a Ward Setzer design, this superyacht sleeps six guests in a master, double and two twins and her planing hull is capable of a 19 knot cruising speed.

As I mentioned before, the pricing history of Acadia offers a sobering reflection on the state of the market. In August 2009 she was reduced from $8.542 million to €5.9 million and now, after a series of reductions, she's asking just $3.5 million, a massive discount to the original price.
