February brokrage news from Edmiston
Edmiston & Company’s classic yacht specialist, Mike Horsley, in the Antibes office started 2008 with the sale of two significant classic yachts, the 36.5m 1936 Thendara, designed by Alfred Mylne, and 25m 1948 Agneta. Both owners are preparing their new respective boats to race each other in the popular Mediterranean classic regatta circuit.
For those looking for modern comforts under sail, the 30m ketch Persistence is newly listed at €2.3m by Steve Bridgeford of the Cote d d’Azur office. Designed by Sparkman & Stephens she sleeps eight guests and has been thoroughly refitted recently.
On display at the Dubai boat show in March, the 36.7m Sheleila, built by Guy Couach, a development of a high quality military hull, is for sale at US$8.5m. James Auld of Edmiston’s Monaco office will be happy to show prospective buyers her contemporary, sleek interior from Frank Relynaud and Elsa Van Loo at Dubai.
Edmiston’s New York office is expanding with two new faces: Steven Myers, founder of yachtcouncil.org, is a sales broker while Robert Shephard, heads up the charter department in the US as well as acting as a charter broker. A number of impressive large yachts are listed for sale in the New York office, the 50m Amels Malibu, designed by Terence Disdale with Reymond Langton interior, having a price reduction of €4m seriously for sale.
