Registration open for luxury megayacht auction in Grand Cayman this month

On March 30, 2010, Apoise – one of the world’s largest and most distinctive megayachts – will be sold at an unreserved public auction in Grand Cayman. Registration to bid is now open. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime auction opportunity: contact Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers today to register and arrange for a private viewing and sea trial. Apoise will be sold on March 30th with no minimums or reserve prices – which means the bidder with the highest bid on auction day will be the new owner of this unique luxury megayacht.

Visit for more information about the auction and to view due diligence documents. Potential buyers must register on or before March 25th and meet all pre-qualification requirements, including placement of a refundable 2,000,000 Euro deposit.

Only qualified bidders will be allowed to visit Apoise, speak to the entire Apoise crew, inspect documents (including all invoices from the Barcelona and Lürssen shipyard visits and Apoise’s Triton Maintenance Program), inspect the ship’s bottom and running gear, and make a sea trial; they may also send an expert or trusted Engineer or Captain to spend several days on the boat.

Designed by Espen Øino and built by world-renowned Lürssen Yachts, Apoise offers the ultimate cruising experience. At just under 220 ft (67 m), Apoise ranked 89th in Power and Motoryacht magazine’s list of the world’s largest yachts in 2009.

The yacht’s wide beam – close to 43 feet (13 m) – translates into an unusually spacious interior, with numerous large cabins and lounge areas. Although Apoise has been used as a private yacht since it was launched in 2006, it is built to a commercial standard and well suited for use as a charter vessel.

Apoise features spacious suites for 12 guests, six decks, indoor and outdoor dining areas, a Jacuzzi on the upper deck and lounges throughout. This yacht was designed for cruising the world in luxury – and entertaining in style. From the elegant baroque furnishings to the luxurious owner’s cabin, no detail was overlooked in the design and appointment of this vessel.

Situated on the main deck and reminiscent of a five-star hotel, the 1,399 sq ft (130 sq m) owner’s cabin includes a full-beam master bath and private Jacuzzi. The guest suites – the VIP suite on the bridge deck and four suites on the lower deck – offer king size berths and individual ensuite bathrooms, and the crew’s cabins accommodate up to 19 staff in comfort.

Apoise has a cruising speed of 14 knots and 190,000-liter fuel capacity, giving it a 5,000 nm range at 12 knots. It comes complete with several tenders: two 14-person Denship tenders and one 15- and one 8-person Novurania tenders.

Apoise will be sold to a new owner on Tuesday, March 30, 2010 – regardless of price. Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers will conduct the auction in Grand Cayman. Interested buyers can bid on Apoise in person at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Grand Cayman, online in real time at, or by placing a proxy bid in advance. Bidders must register on or before March 25th and meet all pre-qualification requirements, including placement of a refundable 2,000,000 Euro deposit.
