New owner for 52m sailing yacht Meteor

Written by Georgia Tindale

The 51.59-metre sailing yacht Meteor has been sold, with Will Bishop from YPI representing the seller and Henry Craven-Smith from Burgess representing the buyer. 

Meteor at St Barths Bucket Delivered by Dutch yard Royal Huisman in 2007, the 51.59-metre schooner features naval architecture from Dykstra Naval Architects in collaboration with John G. Alden, and exterior and interior design from John Munford Design and Pauline Nunns Associates.

Presented fresh from her 2018 refit at Royal Huisman, Meteor was awarded the title of Sailing Yacht of the Year in the 2008 World Superyacht Awards and won the St Barths Bucket in 2009.

During her extensive winter refit at the Dutch yard, the vessel underwent the completion of her ten-year Lloyd’s survey, numerous cosmetic and maintenance upgrades, a hull and rig repaint, as well as an engine room overhaul. 

Aside from her 1,800 square metre North sails wardrobe, the 51.59-metre superyacht is powered by a single MTU 12V2000 M60 diesel engine with a top speed of 15 knots. On board, she offers accommodation for six across one owner's cabin and two twins with a crew of 12 also accommodated for on board. 

At the time of sale, Meteor was listed at an asking price of €15,000,000 (excluding VAT).
