Owning a luxury yacht doesn't have to cost you hundreds of millions. We shine a light on five standout superyachts currently listed for sale for less than €5 million to show you how much boat you can buy for just seven figures...


The 45-metre Immortalis started life as a scientific research vessel in Japan in 1996 and was recently transformed into a luxury expedition yacht following an extensive refit completed in 2021. Built in steel with a range of 7,500 nautical miles, she is a born explorer and is even kitted out with a comprehensive setup of military-grade equipment, while every onboard system is fitted with a failsafe. A knuckle boom crane is fitted to the aft deck for the swift launch and recovery of tenders and toys, while her interior sleeps 12 guests and a further 12 crew.

Immortalis is asking $3,950,000 with Denison Yachting.


Darwin is a 28-metre classic commuter built by Turkish yard Su Marine with a cold moulded wooden hull. Though she was delivered in 2013, her interior captures the essence of a true classic with loft-style white wood cladding and teak throughout. The main saloon is illuminated by large windows with a skylight positioned in the centre and bookshelves along the far bulkhead, while pops of colour work in harmony with traditional styling. Other highlights include an open galley with a sit-up breakfast bar, a shaded sundeck and oversized sunpads on the foredeck. She joined the market in July 2022 following a number of mechanical updates alongside her 10-year RINA survey.

Darwin is asking €4,250,000 with Northrop & Johnson.

El Caran

For those interested in purchasing a piece of history, 39-metre El Caran was once owned by the legendary singer-songwriter David Bowie and joined the market in summer 2022. A rare offering on the brokerage market, this classic canoe-stern Benetti was built in 1977 and benefitted from a refit last year. Telltale signs of Bowie's artistic influence are visible throughout in surrealist paintings, the largest of which hangs over the dining table, and retro-styled furniture in the guest cabins. Her interior is finished in mahogany and sleeps up to 12 guests in six cabins including a full-beam master suite on the main deck. 

El Caran is asking €4,500,000 with Fraser.

Spirit of MK

Another classic from the 1980s is offered for sale following a top-to-bottom refit and is ready to sail away under new ownership. Spirit of MK was built by CRN and delivered in 1980 but features all the amenities an owner could want from a modern 33.5-metre yacht. Stepping through the threshold from the aft deck, guests are greeted by a large saloon with a formal dining table and a wine cellar to starboard, while the master stateroom sits in pride of place forward on the main deck. Her interior is finished in cherry wood with navy cushions and brass accents, with a modern sound system and an outdoor cinema setup.

Spirit of MK is asking €1,990,000 (VAT paid) with IYC.

True North

Lying in Boca Raton, Florida, 26.2-metre True North is a 2007 Pacific Mariner with a four-stateroom cabin arrangement finished in a deep satin Sapele wood with cream furnishings and countertops. The master suite sits amidship while two VIP queen staterooms and a forward twin complete the guest accommodation. A William Garden-designed hull cruises comfortably at 23 knots with a maximum speed of 28 knots and is fitted with Naiad stabilisers for smooth cruising. A second helm station is found on the flybridge deck, while a spread of sunpads on the foredeck creates a favoured sun lounging spot.

True North is asking $2,695,000 with RJC Yachts.
