78.4m superyacht Madsummer sold today at Moran Yacht & Ship
by Malcolm MacLean
A call to Robert Moran at Moran Yacht & Ship brings news of the largest sale ever reported in this column and certain to have a major impact on the final quarter's sales figures, as the 78.4m motor yacht Madsummer was sold today.
Launched by Lürssen in 2008 to a barrage of superlatives from the yachting press, this superyacht was designed by the fabled Espen Øino, with an interior by Alberto Pinto.
She was built to entertain a large number of guests with plenty of space for different saloons, dining and relaxation areas. The dedicated spa area expands onto a large fold-down sea terrace which allows the guests to go from a swim to the sauna, on to massage treatments and to the hammam and inside/outside gym activities, all in a matter of seconds. She has an array of special features including a very large owner's deck with its own Jacuzzi and sunbathing areas, and a helipad which also incorporates a fuelling station.
Madsummer was a finalist at the World Superyacht Awards in 2009, and features in the 2010 edition of The Superyachts book. Her asking price was €135 million and Robert Moran concludes, "It's great news for the industry that the most expensive boat on the market is now sold."
