Yachts for sale under €2 million

30 June 2023 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Buying a yacht doesn't have to cost hundreds of millions. There are plenty of pre-loved, luxury options on the market for seven figures – if you know where to look. BOAT International handpicks eight yachts currently for sale under the €2 million mark.


Gigreca is the first unit in Admiral’s Silent 76 series and the Italian shipyard’s first foray into sailing yachts. Commissioned by a meticulous owner, the 23.2-metre sailing yacht is custom designed by Debenedetti & Fiordi with a glass and aluminium hardtop and a metallic hull. Accommodation is for up to eight guests across four en suite cabins. Gigreca boasts a joystick docking system for easy berthing and a double engine configuration that earns the series its title, delivering top speeds of 13 knots with incredibly low levels of noise and vibration.

Gigreca is asking €1,980,000 with Camper & Nicholsons.

No.6 Texel

This 33.5-metre schooner started life in 1921 as a pilot schooner, inspired by the Baltimore Clippers running between the United States and the Caribbean. She has undergone nearly a decade of colourful ownership, most notably owned by King Farouk I of Egypt after the Second World War, who remodelled her to royal standards. A five-year keel-up restoration starting in 2006 by the Atollvic Shipyard saw her completely overhauled to bring her up to modern standards while preserving the original integrity of the boat.

Sub Zero

Built by Italcraft in 2007 as part of its Maxi Drago 105 series, this 31-metre motor yacht underwent a sizeable technical and cosmetic refit when bought from the new owner in 2021. This involved a fresh teak deck, new Fisher Panda 35Kw generators, anti-osmosis treatment and a brand-new full service Arnesson system. Sub Zero is an all-GRP vessel whose planning hull and MTU engines allow her to reach exhilarating top speeds of 40 knots and a cruising speed of 30 knots. She can comfortably accommodate eight guests across four cabins, including a full-beam master suite.

Sub Zero is asking €1,850,000 with Attica Yachts.

Excelerate Z

Excelerate Z is one of the highest-specced Sunseeker 94s available on the brokerage market. This 28-metre motor yacht was substantially refitted in 2022, which involved a complete upgrade of all communication, navigation, audiovisual and connectivity systems, with the new equipment installed typically found on much larger yachts. Her classic, understated interiors are courtesy of Bannenberg and Rowell, with accommodation for up to eight across four ensuite cabins. Excelerate Z’s top deck is her main convivial area, featuring a bar, Jacuzzi and ample sunbathing space.

Sea Breeze III

This all-wood, 30.8-metre Millkraft motor yacht was delivered in 1976 and was once owned by New Zealand’s wealthiest individual Graeme Hart. Sea Breeze III’s heritage Hollywood style has been preserved over the years, most recently with a visit to specialist refit yard Oceania Marine in 2019. Work lasted throughout the pandemic and involved an extensive paint job, a full interior overhaul and the removal, redesign, and strengthening of four metres of the upper aft deck. She has accommodation for up to six guests, with interiors that still proudly display much of the original mahogany and texturing.

Sea Breeze III is asking $1,700,000 with 36 Degrees Brokers.

De Vrouwe Christina

Modelled after the traditional Dutch Tjalk vessels, De Vrouwe Christina was launched in September 1957 and is the only vessel of her kind to have been built by Feadship. She is in impeccable, seaworthy condition thanks to a dedicated maintenance record and extensive refits in 2002 and 2017. With a range of 1000 nautical miles, her current owners have proven her capabilities by visiting Alaska, New England and South America in recent years. This spritsail barge can accommodate six across three cabins, with surprisingly spacious interiors that include a two-level saloon with stainless steel stairs, a Yamaha self-playing piano and an open galley.

De Vrouwe Christina is asking $990,000 with Camper & Nicholsons.


Elena is a 26.2-metre, all-weather explorer yacht built in steel by Dutch yard Kramer & Booy. A former fishing vessel, she was converted and fully renovated into a private yacht. Elena was completely refitted in 2017, with everything but the hull, superstructure and main engine replaced for the latest available equipment. She accommodates six guests overnight up to thirty for day cruises, plus accommodation for four crew. Design highlights include her spacious sundeck with 360-degree views, a shaded lower aft deck for lounging and easy walk-around decks. While currently under private use, she would also work well as a commercial dive vessel.

Elena is asking €840,000 with Ocean Independence.

Dolce Vita II

Launched in 2000, Dolce Vita II belongs to the sporty Leopard 24 series. She lives up to the Leopard legacy with a planing hull and twin MTU engines that deliver a top speed of 35 knots. She also has an impressively low 0.9-metre draft, perfect for cruising the shallow waters of the Bahamas. Exterior design is courtesy of Paolo Caliari and a fun element to note is the large sun pad aft, which can be removed to reveal a custom Hibachi grill. Accommodation is for seven across three cabins, including a master cabin fitted with a vanity, entertainment centre and minibar.

Dolce Vita II is asking $799,000 with Moran Yacht & Ship.
