The 36.4-metre explorer superyacht Lars has been sold, Fraser has today announced. Conceived in 1995 as the ultimate tug boat, the 36.4-metre vessel was started by the Dutch shipyard Made. Unfortunately, she was not finished at this time, and it wasn’t until her previous owner bought her and took her to Balk Shipyard several years later in 2010 that life really began for Lars

Transformed by Balk, designer Felix Buytendijk restyled Lars’ superstructure, adding a sun deck, and integrating a new swimming platform amongst a number of significant changes, before she was relaunched in early 2012. Her maiden voyage was an exciting one, taking her owners to the North Pole from Spitsbergen to Nova Zembla that year. 

Completing an additional refit last year, Lars was sold in an in-house deal at Fraser. Maarten Ten Holter represented the buyer, with Jan Jaap Minnema representing the seller. She is currently located in Corfu, Greece.
