Listed for sale in September 2021, the 85 metre explorer Victorious finally hit the water at AK Yachts in April 2021. The long-running project first began life as a 77 metre explorer before it was reimagined by Michael Leach Design. Following the laying of the keel in 2006, the project stalled and did not resurface until a new owner was found in 2016. Customisations were made - including a six metre extension to the stern - before the yacht finally launched. Now, Victorious is fitted out for luxury cruising, with key features including an observation saloon complete with a grand piano and a wine and cigar "clubroom" with a working fireplace. 

Victorious is asking €125,000,000 with Burgess.
