Over the last few months Fraser Yachts has seen some strong recovery signs for the luxury yacht market for vessels larger than 24m. Fraser Yachts’ CEO Hein Velema comments, “After Q4 2008 saw a steady decline in sales volumes across the industry, there’s been a definite turn since the start of this year. January and February saw steady growth with a more significant upturn during March and April. However, worldwide sales volumes are still well below the levels of recent years.”
While the sales are up, Hein stresses that they are certainly not happening at give-away prices. “There are very rarely “desperate sales” situations in well maintained products, like in other asset classes, and there haven’t been any significant distress deals,” says Hein. “We’ve seen prices settling down to around 25-30% less than the inflated ones of 12-24 months ago. We’re coming back to reality where yachts are selling for what they were historically priced at, unadjusted for the “bubble” and the over inflated market that led to the current re-adjustment. Sellers need to understand this market phenomenon and price accordingly when they really want to sell.”
