William Bishop of YPI Brokerage is pleased to announce the Division’s latest CA appointment - Royal Huisman’s multi-award winning 52-metre schooner Meteor. This renowned sailing yacht, handled by YPI with the welcome support of Kevin Merrigan and his team at the Florida and San Diego Divisions of Northrop & Johnson, was built in 2007 to a design by Dykstra & Partners. She was the recipient of an unprecedented three awards at the World Superyacht Awards in 2008 and carried off the winning trophy at this year’s St Barth’s Bucket.
“Put quite simply, she is an absolutely stunning yacht,” says her YPI Broker and Sailing Yacht specialist, William Bishop. “Built and refitted in the yard they call “the super sailing yacht dream factory” now celebrating their 125th Anniversary, Meteor is one of the finest examples of the sheer talent and skill Royal Huisman is so renowned for today.”
With ample space for 6 guests in 3 cabins and a Crew of 12 in seven cabins, all beautifully arranged within the classic John Munford interior, Meteor has earned herself a reputation for being one of the best appointed sailing yachts on the market today. “She has quite a traditional, relaxing feel about her,” says William, “but make no mistake…she is packed with modern technology, design and sailing prowess.”
For those wishing to inspect Meteor, YPI Brokerage is also pleased to announce that she will exhibited at this year’s Fort Lauderdale Boat Show where she will be lying at the Hilton Marina, easily accessible by water taxi from Bahia Mar Dock.
