It's all happening at YCO as Lisa Peck tells me that the company has signed three luxury yachts for sale. Firstly, Anthony Rees has been appointed central agent for sale of Eurocraft's 37.6m Madhuri. Launched in 2008, she has very low engine hours, accommodates eight guests and cruises at 28 knots. Her asking price is €5.5 million.
Anthony's also signed Falcon's 32.5m Harlequin for sale. Built in 2001 and refitted in 2007, she sleeps up to 10 guests in four cabins and her 40m berth in Port Vauban, Antibes is also up for sale as a combined package at €6.5 million. The yacht is available separately at €2.5 million.
Meanwhile, I called Ben Bartlett, head of YCO Sail about his latest project, the 33.5m Aeroyacht 110 catamaran. Apparently designer Gregor Tarjan has worked with Morelli & Melvin to take their knowledge from the record-breaking Playstation Maxi Cat to produce what promises to be the world's fastest cruising yacht.
A groundbreaking initiative is the option to have a two-seater Icon A5 amphibious sports plane aboard as a striking alternative to the traditional tender. Currently the interior accommodation is configured with four spacious staterooms, but Ben says this can be easily modified. Ben goes on to say: "We'll be naming the yard in the next few weeks and will then also be able to give an indication on price."
