Hot on the heels of their most recent sale - their third in just 6 weeks, and reportedly “the world’s 50TH superyacht sale of the year” - YPI Brokerage is now pleased to announce the sale of the renowned Perini Navi 53m ketch: Independence.
“We are very pleased to see her go to some very happy clients and old friends of YPI,” says a clearly delighted Will Bishop, Head of the YPI Sailing Division. “The yacht has now been renamed Jasali II and is just about to go into refit to make her commercially compliant before she is marketed for charter this coming winter season in the Caribbean.”
Launched in 1998 the yacht is testament to the exterior and interior design skills and expertise of the team at Perini Navi. Refitted as recently as 2008, she offers accommodation for up to 12 guests in 6 suites comprising 1 owner cabin, 3 double cabins, 2 twin cabins and 2 Pullman cabins and is capable of carrying up to 12 crew.
“The yacht is well proven,” says Will. “She has travelled the globe carrying guests and crew to remote and exotic locations in complete safety whilst offering all the comforts and amenities of a 5-star hotel with the toys to match.” Independence, or Jasali II, has always been superbly maintained,” adds Will. “That has included regular equipment servicing, replacing any questionable systems, and upgrading to newer technology as and when it has become available. She recently completed the 10-year survey with minimal work required – proof of the thoroughness of the maintenance programme she has been under.” Independence was listed as a Central Agency yacht with Edmiston and Northrop & Johnson.
The team at YPI wish to thank Alex Busher at Edmiston for his co-operation throughout the process.
Independence was listed at an Asking Price of: $24,950,000.
