Fraser broker Antoine Larricq, tells SuperYacht Times why Quite Essential and Mirgab VI stand out from other superyachts currently on the market. With more than 60 superyacht sales under his belt, and over 40 years in the industry, Larricq is certainly the man in the know. Photo: Tom van OossanenThe 48.77-metre Mirgab VI, which came on the market in March, was built in 2010 by Dutch shipyard, Royal Hakvoort. She features exterior design by Glade Johnson, her interior design comes from the boards Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design, while her naval architecture and engineering was conceived by of Diana Yacht Design. The 55-metre Quite Essential, ex.Quinta Essentia, was built in 2011 by Heesen Yachts. Her interior was a collaborative creation by Michela Reverberi, while her exterior lines were penned by Omega Architects.

“First of all, they are both vessels with a Dutch pedigree – which speaks for itself. They are built by two renowned shipyards, Heesen and Royal Hakvoort, and also designed by major houses. The future owner of either of these vessels will enjoy a level of quality, engineering and craftsmanship that only Dutch yachts can offer. Additionally, in the current market, there are very few other pedigree yachts of 10 years old or less available for sale.”Photo: Fraser Yachts“Quite Essential and Mirgab VI were both purchased by their respective owners at an early stage in the construction process, which allowed improvements and customisation from the original design. This level of involvement meant that two outstanding superyachts were delivered.”Photo: Tom van Oossanen“Also, both yachts have successfully completed their 10-years class surveys. With fresh class certificates, they have been maintained to the highest yacht standards. A new owner could be on board in time for the summer season 2021. “
How has Quite Essential been maintained over the years?
“Quite Essential is maintained in perfect condition. In addition to her 5-year class survey being completed in Spring 2021 and her standard annual winter maintenance, a particular technical project is identified each year for an upgrade project. Stepping on board for the first time, guests’ reactions to the yacht are that she is ‘immaculate’ and ‘spectacular’.”Photo: Tom van OossanenMirgab VI has seven staterooms, which is considerable for a yacht of her size. Is there potential for conversion of these cabins into alternative spaces?
“For an owner interested in smart upgrades or modifications on board, the master stateroom located on the sundeck aft could be converted into the perfect wellness area – it offers its own private terraces aft and forward. The yacht would work well for family or charter use, for 12 guests, with both VIP staterooms on the bridge deck and 4 guest staterooms on the lower deck.”Photo: Fraser YachtsBoth of these vessels have striking interior aesthetics. How would you describe the interior design of these motor yachts?
“Quite Essential is immediately recognisable from the outside with her wine colour Chianti Classico exterior paint. People would expect the same colour scheme on board, but the owner and Michela Reverberi created a palatial, spacious interior, filled with natural light thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as skylights opening above the dining table, elevator casing and owner’s stateroom.”Photo: Tom van Oossanen“Quite Essential is also incredibly luxurious, decorated with different coloured stone and marble Agate and Onyx throughout, and various materials to recall the four elements. This stunning design is enhanced by luxurious furniture from Kenzo and Fendi, and all TV screens are recessed.”Photo: Tom van Oossanen“Mirgab VI is more classic in style, with restrained and meticulous Art Deco styling. She includes luxurious finishing in Mahogany sapelli, gold detailing, silk and wool carpeting, Mother of Pearl inserts and Honey Onyx. Her floor-to-ceiling windows enable spectacular views of the seascape and a fresh, unimpeded flow of natural light.”Photo: Fraser Yachts“Both yachts share a common point: their respective owners have invested time and money into creating and maintaining refined interiors that will stand the test of time.”
Have these vessels ever been used for charter and would this be a possibility for a future owner?
“Quite Essential is available for charter with a solid track record and number of repeat clients, yet her owner never wanted to overbook her to preserve her condition. Mirgab VI has never been chartered, and she is more the kind of yacht we would suggest keeping for private family use.”Photo: Fraser YachtsQuite Essential is reported to include many unique innovations, can you describe some of these?
“As mentioned, Quite Essential was purchased at a very early construction stage, allowing for upgrades before delivery. Improvements developed on board include a wellness centre on the sundeck, a wheelchair-friendly elevator serving all decks, a unique drive-in floated tender bay with limo tender, glass bulwarks, full-height windows on the main and bridge decks with balconies and a palatial 70m² Owner's suite with skylights and balconies. Plus a main deck jet pool with waterfall, a fully equipped bar on each aft exterior deck, and the expansive foredeck lounge. Most impressively, all these assets are fitted into a gross tonnage of 780 tons.” Photo: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Tom van Oossanen
