Camper & Nicholsons's monthly activity report on the yachting market keeps you abreast of brokerage figures and recent trends from within the industry. Discover what's been happening this September.
A total of 17 yachts were sold this September, making it a rather quiet month for brokerage. The largest yacht sold was a 48m (157’5) sailing yacht built by Vitters Holland, followed closely be a 47.9m (157’2) motor yacht built in 1982 but benefitting from an extensive two year refit in 2010.
Although sales figures were down, September was a very exciting month for new yachts brought to the brokerage market. A 78m (255’9) Lurssen, designed by Espen Oeino with an interior by Albert Pinto, which was last sold in November 2010 has just rejoined the market. A 61m (200’1) CRN, boasting a François Zuretti interior, previously sold in December 2012, has also just rejoined the brokerage market. Five new sailing yachts with a total asking price value of 59 million USD also came onto the sales market during September. This big influx of new brokerage listings is typical for September as the industries largest shows, Cannes and Monaco, fall in the same month.
Looking forward into October and figures show that there are currently more than 1,900 superyachts for sale, of which 315 (16.5%) are sailing yachts. Out of these 1,900-plus superyachts for sale, 354 (18.6%) were built during the past four years (2010 - 2014), 586 (31%) were built between 2005 and 2009, and over 50% of the superyachts currently for sale were built over 10 years ago.
