Superyacht Pelorus sold by Merle Wood

Merle Wood at Merle Wood & Associates calls me with the extraordinary news that he’s just sold the 114.5m motor yacht Pelorus, often referred to as the most beautiful yacht in the world.

The buyer is the ubiquitous David Geffen who in October 2010 bought out Larry Ellison’s share in another major superyacht, Lürssen’s 138m Rising Sun. As Merle says, Mr Geffen now owns two of the highest pedigree, coolest superyachts on the planet. And not only that – both yachts are in the top twenty of the world’s 100 largest superyachts.

Launched in November 2003, Pelorus was built at Lürssen’s Krogerwerft facility. She was originally commissioned by a Saudi Arabian who sold her to Russian tycoon Roman Abramovich. The yacht is the work of Tim Heywood, who designed the superstructure and working areas, and Terence Disdale, who designed the interior. Pelorus has two helicopter pads, a swimming pool, a spa pool, and an owner’s suite with 180-degree panoramic views and a private deck.

I’m sure you’re asking yourself what the price was. Well, Pelorus wasn’t on the market so there was no asking price but Merle says a figure of $300,000,000 wouldn’t be far off the mark.
