Strolling along the T Jetty today at the Monaco Yacht Show, I manage to grab a word with Marc Haendle of Ocean Independence who tells me that his central listing, the 35.5m motor yacht called project Courage, has just sold.
The build was halted due to financial problems but, with a new owner, construction should now take 10 months at Germany's Lubeck Yachts. Says Marc, "She was sold very close to the asking price of €6.45 million. The build will restart next month and we hope to have this vessel ready for the next season."
Being built to Germanischer Lloyd and MCA standards, this superyacht features an interior by Egg & Dart accommodating eight guests in full width master and VIP staterooms plus a further two guest cabins. She's expected to have a range of 3,500 nautical miles.
