Price reduction on motor yacht Polycarpus at Ocean Independence

11 October 2012By Malcolm MacLean

Axel Douque at Ocean Independence in Zurich tells me the owner of the 34.6m motor yacht Polycarpus is a realistic seller and wants her sold now, with a price drop of €800,000.

Polycarpus has a long history, having been built by France’s Arsenal yard in 1949 as one of a series of 10 sturdy tug boats. In 2003 her buyer took this strong hull to Holland’s Gielen yard for conversion into a superyacht with modern systems, equipment and finish. Today Polycarpus sleeps 12 guests in six cabins and has every conceivable amenity, including an open top deck with Jacuzzi.

Lying in Palma, Polycarpus is down from €3.75 million to €2.95 million.
