This demonstrates our team’s deeper knowledge of the industry and our ability to find solutions when the on-market has been exhausted. In particular, I would like to thank Henry Smith, who led the way for both sides on this deal. I would also like to pass on my sincere thanks to the Captain and crew for their efforts throughout this process.” Salperton yacht deckPhoto: Merijn de Waard / SuperYacht TimesChris added: “It’s very encouraging to see the continuing uptrend in the brokerage market over the last few months with this being our fifth deal since the end of lockdown. It underlines our belief that quality yachts will sell both on and off the market. We are looking forward to finishing this year on a high.”Salperton yacht sailingPhoto: Merijn de Waard / SuperYacht TimesMes Amis has space for 10 guests over four cabins serviced by a crew of five.
