The concern with the Euro crisis isn’t just affecting the luxury high-street retailers, super-yacht sales and rentals are also feeling the effects of the global economic uncertainty.
The glut of super-yachts for sale coupled with the perceived ramifications should Greece and other countries look to exit the Euro is producing some stunning bargains and price reductions within the super-yacht industry. It is not just yacht sales that are having to readjust due to the global economic uncertainty rentals are also having to be re-evaluated. During a normal year yachts in the Mediterranean are usually booked by late spring. This year will probably see many yachts and boats having empty rental weeks especially during the peak period of July.
Charter companies are saying that many of the customers are holding back until the last minute in the hope of getting a more attractive deal.
Luxury yacht broker Burgess-Yachts recently announced an incredible US$4.75 million price reduction on Sunrise a 173.2 feet Oceano that has only ever seen private use and still belongs to her original owner.
Recently Sunrise returned from a shipyard where she was fitted with quantum Zero speed stabilisers and had other routine maintenance performed on her ensuring that she will be in prime condition for any new potential owner this summer. This incredible super-yacht presents excellent value for a yacht in her size and range.
Consistently maintained to the very highest standards by the same Captain and Chief Engineer since build and with no investment spared, SUNRISE also benefited from a substantial refit in 2010, which included a complete repaint of hull and superstructure and interior upgrades.
The yacht’s exterior provides spacious comfortable decks with two Jacuzzi spa pools and plentiful areas for lounging and dining while huge, deep windows create a bright and elegant interior elegantly styled with limed oak panelling, mirrors and glass that increase the sense of light and space.
The split-level owner¹s suite is a particular feature for a yacht of this size, offering high levels of privacy with a forward facing sleeping area with 180 degree aspect through one-way glass, leading out onto a private owner’s deck with Jacuzzi forward. This suite also has an exceptionally large bathroom to port with separate bath and shower. To starboard, there is a spacious private study which is equipped with all the latest IT and TV/AV equipment. Five well-appointed, light-filled en suite staterooms provide further accommodation for ten guests while an additional cinema / games room is ideally suited for overspill accommodation and could easily be converted into a large additional guest cabin if the yacht was purely operated in a private capacity.
With her Lloyds 10 year special survey completed in 2010, Sunrise is also MCA compliant and would equally make a superb charter platform.
New Asking Price – USD 24,750,000.
