Ocean Independence completed the sales of an incredible 8 yachts in a 14 day period at the end of July/early August, five of which were to direct clients.
Topping the bill was the magnificent 70m Oceanfast MY Floridian (photo). Delivered in 2003 and refitted with a new helicopter landing pad in 2004/5 this full displacement yacht accommodates 12 guests and 14 crew. A testament to the synergy of the 10-office strong network of brokers and managers, this sale was a team effort, with OCI Monaco’s Marco Vandoni acting on a company referral to broker the deal on the purchasing client’s behalf.
The success continued with the completion of the 32m 2005 Sunseeker Predator MY San Miguel brokered jointly by Geneva based Bjørn Vang-Mathisen and Eric Trupheme from Antibes, the 29m 2001 Dragos MV Megawattthrough Palma’s Jim Acher and the 29m 1995 Hakvoort MY Lady Libra sold by Palma’s Marc Händle. Jim Acher also completed the sale of the 19m 2002 SY Wallyño for his direct client with Marco Vandoni acting for the Seller.
Three OCI central agency yachts were also sold: 35m 1991 Oceanco MY Findings (Peter Hürzeler – Zürich), SY White Garuda a 23m 1981 Jongert (Marc Händle – Palma) and MY Nilo a 21m 2001 Ferretti (Peter Hürzeler and Eric Trupheme – Antibes).
The Swiss-based Management division of Ocean Independence, Ocean Management, is also very proud to announce the addition of three new yachts to their growing fleet of vessels under operational management; 49m MY Anedigmi (ex Altavida), 70m MY Floridian and 49m MY Iman.
Last but not least, the OCI charter brokers have been very busy, signing five new CAs for charter: Monaco’s Janine Hall is responsible for three of these, signing 23m MV Tinkerbell B, 19m MV Sirius of Leeds and 29m MV Megawatt. Palma based charter broker Barbara Müller has also signed two new CA’s, the striking classic 33m SV Sintra, and 25m MV Newflash, highly sought after as she is legal for charter in Spanish waters. More details and photographs of these yachts are available in the charter section of our website.
