OLIVIA SOLD
February 2021

OLIVIA SOLD The 69m conversion of a hydrographic survey vessel into a luxury Explorer yacht with exceptional seagoing capabilities

Stuart is pleased to announce the sale of OLIVIA, the 69m Explorer yacht, originally built as a hydrographic survey vessel.

Custom built for the Russian navy at the height of the Cold War by the Finnish shipyard Oy Laivateollisuus, OLIVIA had to be able “to go out and stay out, no matter what the conditions”. She has fully lived up to the brief. OLIVIA’s capabilities are second to none in terms of seaworthiness and construction. Built to ice class, her controllable pitch propeller is very deep in the water to avoid hitting ice blocks so she leaves almost no wake. She cruises at 12 knots and reaches a top speed of 15.0 kn. Her range is extraordinary – up to 15,000 nautical miles – and her ice class means no area of the world is off-limits.

OLIVIA was fully refit, first at Rouvia Road Yacht Design & Construction in the Philippines and in then in Malta in 2011 to bring her up to yacht standards. The refits included replacing all damaged steel and the installation of new equipment - pumps, generators (three 300kW Cummins) and air conditioning systems – and adding retractable Rolls-Royce fin stabilizers. The original 2,000hp Deutz engine was entirely rebuilt. The hull was faired and painted.

The Italian design company Droulers Architecture remodeled the interior which now includes a cinema and an office on the main deck as well as the saloon and dining room.  The interior is finished in solid rosewood paneling and decorated in neutral colors with minimalist furnishings. The emphasis is on modern, practical comfort but the result is also very stylish while preserving the feel of the yacht. OLIVIA sleeps 10 guests in five staterooms including the owner’s suite and accommodates up to 26 crew.

OLIVIA has a relatively low gross tonnage (1,259GT) owing to her open decks. All recreation spaces are aft of the superstructure and split over three decks. The teak sundeck was reconfigured for lounging and sunbathing. A large spa pool and canopies for shade were added during the refit as well as an articulated swim platform that swings from the retractable gangway. OLIVIA carries a number of large (11m) tenders and will be reconfigured to carry even more toys!

OLIVIA, Stuart’s second sale of 2021, is EU VAT paid and was asking EUR 17,500,000.

SEA FOREVER SOLD
February 2021

SEA FOREVER SOLDTop performing exploration yacht with proven track record

Stuart is pleased to announce his sale of the 28m I 93’ Sea Forever.  It is Stuart’s first sale of 2021 and he represented both Buyer and Seller.
SEA FOREVER was built in 2007 by the Vancouver-based ABD Aluminum Yachts, one of the most highly regarded aluminum yacht builders in North America.
She was specifically designed to cruise in remote locations where the need for room, range, storage and efficiency is paramount. She has more usable volume than any other 93' yacht, thanks to her 7.2m beam. Built to survive 20-foot waves without shipping water, her imposing bow improves fuel efficiency and reduces pitching. Powered by two 500-hp fuel efficient Lugger engines and with a 5,600nm range at 8.5 knots, her cruising record is hard to match.
Sea Forever spent the last 18 months cruising the South Pacific with stops in Perlas Islands, Panama; Galapagos; Marquesas, Society Islands and Tuamotus in French Polynesia. She is economical and efficient to operate and has been rigorously maintained.

Designed by Ed Fry, SEA FOREVER has a minimalist interior with unstained maple woods and light fabrics, designed by David Boudreau. She accommodates 8 guests in three staterooms on the main deck and 2 more in the Master suite on the bridge deck featuring large windows with beautiful 180° views, an office area and a protected private deck.

SEA FOREVER carries two good size tenders and has an extended beach club with a large lazarette equipped to store lots of scuba gear.
SEA FOREVER was asking $6,500,00.

January 2021

NEW CENTRAL AGENCY: ANNA I67m I 220’ De Vries with interior and exterior design by Michael Leach Design

Stuart is pleased to announce his appointment as Joint Central Agent for the lovely 67m Feadship, ANNA I. “What do you get when you place a contemporary interpretation of a neo-classical interior in a timelessly modern exterior? A beautiful Feadship and a highly satisfied owner...”

Launched in 2007 by the De Vries Feadship yard, ANNA I is, if not the best, one of the top pedigreed yachts of this size on the market today.
With naval architecture by De Voogt spanning four decks, her exterior and interior design are by Michael Leach. Recognized as one of the most innovative superyacht design studios around, MLD is known for their well-thought-out general arrangement plans that work properly for guests and crew alike. ANNA 1’s impressive architecture, engineering design and finish won her an award in the Best Displacement Motor Yacht from 1300GT to 2999GT at the World Superyacht Awards.

The well-balanced distribution of open deck spaces includes sunbathing areas, alfresco dining areas and a helipad aft (for an EC 135) to complement the elegant, interior accommodations with 7 spacious staterooms for up to 17 guests. Anna 1’s interior is finished in satin polished burr elm, flame mahogany and decorated with museum-quality handmade furniture in rare woods by Silverlining Furniture.

ANNA 1 has a number of unique design features like the port-side dining room with sliding doors to the side deck where a folding terrace drops down to improve the sea views. The bridge deck saloon doubles as a cinema, with a drop-down screen and projector and there is an enclosed gym on the sun deck.
The master suite has double the normal volume, created by doing away with the roof above the bedroom area and opening it up to double height. Natural light comes into the cabin from windows on two levels. The suite includes a large walk-in dressing room, an Owner's office/library, and a generous bathroom. Stairs lead up to a private panoramic lounge with doors leading to the foredeck and a private owner’s area.
The main saloon can be set up as a disco. The furniture moves to the sides and the Dutch elm parquet dance floor comes alive with the sound and light system from four custom-made Silverlining disco units.

Anna is powered by twin Caterpillar main engines and has a 5,100nm range at 13 knots and maximum speed of 16.7 knots. She is equipped with Quantum zero-speed stabilizers and accommodates 18 crew.

At Eur 53,900,000, ANNA 1 is well priced and seriously for sale. She is currently undergoing an extensive refit including a complete paint job and will be ready for viewings in the Mediterranean in April.

NEW CENTRAL AGENCY: TATOOSH
January 2021

NEW CENTRAL AGENCY: TATOOSHKlaus Kusch exterior design and interiors by Terry Disdale

Stuart is delighted to announce his appointment as Central Agent for the sale of Tatoosh, the groundbreaking 92m (303’) yacht, built in Germany by Nobiskrug. Including Tatoosh, Stuart currently represents 710m (2,329’) of yachts, collectively worth over US$1billion.

The most exciting yachts tend to be built by owners with a clear idea of what they want to do. Such projects also pave the way for new lifestyle features. In 2000, Nobiskrug made its mark on the International superyacht scene with the launch of TATOOSH which, at the time, was one of the world’s largest superyachts. Highly innovative, Tatoosh was commissioned by a forward-thinking owner who signed up yachting legend Klaus Kusch for the exterior design, naval architecture and project management. The interior design was entrusted to another legend, Terry Disdale, known for his refreshingly casual yet exquisitely chic interiors. Both designers were at the height of their careers and willing to push boundaries in the burgeoning world of superyachts.

Tatoosh was built to a scale which has become accepted today but was highly innovative at the time. Built with top-quality materials, state-of-the-art technology and exceptional craftsmanship, she spans six decks and (one of her most distinguishing features) carries an extraordinary range of tenders and toys. She can carry two helicopters; a 43’ Frers designed sailboat and a 43’ Hinckley picnic boat are stowed port and starboard, and three other guest tenders and an array of smaller watercraft round out her toy list. Her beach club marina with doors opening port and starboard is equipped with dive facilities, and a sauna and a hot tub with views aft over the ocean.

MCA compliant, Tatoosh has been a successful charter yacht although she has rarely been chartered. At 3,229 GT, she accommodates up to 19 guests in 11 staterooms plus.  Unusually, the owner’s area extends over two decks with the owners private “apartment like” living area forward on the boat deck and sleeping accommodations below on the main deck, ideally arranged for a family. On-board facilities include a cinema, a family room for games or home schooling, a gym and spa facilities and a large swimming pool on the main deck aft.

Tatoosh is asking Eur 90 million and will emerge from an extensive refit in Northern Germany in early 2021. Please note Tatoosh is not offered for sale to US residents while in US waters.

PRICE REDUCTION ON GEORGIA
January 2021

PRICE REDUCTION ON GEORGIA Now asking USD 7,950,000

Now asking $ 7,950,000 the 49m I 159' Georgia was the world’s largest sloop at the time of her launch in 2000. With her 59m carbon mast and striking burgundy-red hull, she established herself as the trailblazer for a new generation of sailing yachts.

Built by Alloy in New Zealand with naval architecture by Sudio Scanu and Butch Design, and exterior styling and interior design by Glade Johnson Design, Georgia was conceived as the ultimate family world cruiser.
Design priorities included a requirement for four generous guest cabins, a gym PLUS a full width master suite and a large hot tub. In a yacht of this size, ease of sailing with a minimal crew was an absolute necessity, as well as safety for all on board.  GEORGIA exceeded everyone's most enthusiastic expectations. Proven beyond doubt, since 2009 she has covered almost 115,000nm, circumnavigated the globe and won the 2018 St Barth’s Bucket.

The very strict rules for Lloyd's and the then-to-be-adopted MCA rules and regulations were embraced to achieve the highest structural and safety standards and GEORGIA has been maintained to the same standard ever since.
Georgia has a low profile with unusually large windows which allow guests to look down onto the water. The sailing equipment is hidden below deck, a very unusual feature on a sailing yacht. There is ample sailing gear storage in below deck 50-gallon storage drums. Her centreboard draft allows access to shoal cruising areas.

Georgia has a beautiful cherry wood interior and is the only yacht of her size on the market with a full-beam Master Suite and a sixth stateroom or gym. She sleeps 10 or 12 in five staterooms with en suite bathrooms and accommodates 8 crew.

For an appointment to see Georgia please contact Stuart by phone +1 954 328 6553 or at
Stuart.Larsen@FraserYachts.com . For more info check out http://www.yachtsparkbooks.com/georgia/. Please note that Georgia is not for sale to US residents while in US waters.

Stuart is pleased to announce his appointment as central agent for the sale of Sirona III, the 56.40m (185’) custom—built yacht delivered by Oceanfast in 2004.
One of the last yachts designed by the legendary Jon Bannenberg, Sirona III has a dashing profile and streamlined proportions enhanced by her royal blue hull which are as contemporary today as when she was launched.  Arguably the best Oceanfast built, Craig Beale coordinated the design team which included Sam Sorgiovanni who curated the crisp interior styling.

Built to Lloyds classification and MCA compliant, Sirona III has a steel hull and white composite (FRP) low maintenance superstructure. Although full displacement, her hull is relatively shallow and well suited for cruising the Bahamas. Sirona III is equipped with Caterpillar engines, Caterpillar generators, zero speed stabilizers and has trans-Pacific range at 10 knots. At top speed Sirona III can reach almost 15 knots and cruise comfortably at 12 knots.

The sun deck also includes an indoor gym with a steam shower and day head. On the main deck the sliding glass doors of the formal saloon can be opened to create a giant al fresco entertaining area.

Sirona III’s crisp and contemporary interior is decorated in neutral tones with accents of color. Thanks to her large vertical windows, the overall effect is light and airy, with a modern art-deco feel. Sirona III can accommodate 12 guests in a bridge deck owner’s stateroom, four guest suites on the lower deck and a convertible stateroom/salon/TV lounge on the main deck. The four guest suites have extremely versatile bed arrangements such that SIRONA III can sleep up to 16 guests. She carries up to 15 crew.

STUART SELLS TURQUOISE YACHTS 75m PROJECT Project NB69
August 2020

STUART SELLS TURQUOISE YACHTS 75m PROJECT Project NB69 Scheduled for delivery November 2021

Stuart is pleased to announce the sale of new 75-metre Turquoise Yachts Project NB69 confirming the ongoing enthusiasm for yachting which has continued throughout the global health crisis.  
 
A sister ship of NB66, NB69 has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure and is designed by A.Vallicelli & C. Yacht Design with naval architecture by Turquoise and interior design by the Dutch designer Sinot.
 
In mid-July, NB69 was transferred from the Kocaeli facility to the Pendik shipyard for completion of interior installation and outfitting including the top paint coat. She is on schedule for sea trials in 14 months and delivery is contracted for November 2021.
 
Spanning 6 six decks, of which two are dedicated to technical and crew areas, the originality of NB69’s style plays on harmonious contrasts between soft and rigid elements. The styling of the superstructure and the hull is a combination of simple, sleek lines and a powerful, dynamic look. “A tight line starting in the bow area, that then, at the center of the boat, becomes a curved concave line that gently slopes down towards the aft section. With a profile reminiscent of sporty sailing, the low angle of the transom slope and the long forward overhang, make this 75m yacht appear long, slender, and elegant in support of her generous interior volume”.
 
At more than 1700 GT and with a 14.2m beam, NB69 can reach 17knots, powered by Caterpillar 3516C engines. Equipped with Naiad zero speed stabilizers, she is built to Lloyd’s class.
 
Sinot, known for their owner-centered custom designs, has devised some highly creative solutions for the interior including a spectacular pool lounge and spa treatment room.
 
In addition to a 4m pool on the main deck, the yacht features an unusually large “generation three” full-beam beach club which opens on three sides, with the port and starboard shell doors converting into extended platforms on the sea.
Guest accommodation includes the Owner’s suite on a private deck and 5 guest cabins plus a VIP cabin on the main deck. NB69 carries up to 22 crew in 10 double cabins in addition to the captain’s quarters.
 
A touch-and-go helicopter pad is located forward on the upper deck and the large tender garages house a 10m limousine tender as well as the 8.5m multi-purpose guest tender, a 5.5m rescue/crew tender and several wave runners along with Nitrox diving capability.

Stuart is pleased to announce the sale of Awatea, the 45-metre ocean-going motor yacht delivered by Hakvoort in 2008. Stuart acted for the buyer.

Awatea is Stuart’s fifth sale in 2020, confirming strong demand and resilient pricing notwithstanding the current travel restrictions.

With a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, Awatea was designed by Cor de Rover with naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design while Felix Buytendijk was responsible for the interior design.
In 2018, the new owner redecorated the interior, lightening the palette without altering the layout. The current interior is modern classic featuring mahogany panels, superbly bevelled raised panel joinery and classic white painted surfaces and beamed deck heads. The prevailing color scheme includes tones of blue, aqua and white.

Built to Lloyds and MCA, Awatea was the first yacht to be built for chartering under the Dutch government rules for Commercial Cruising Vessels (CCV) and has the perfect length and layout for worldwide family cruising.
Larger than normal for a 45m, her layout makes the most of her 499 GT. All five staterooms are really spacious with en-suite bathrooms and the full-beam master suite, accessed via a private study, has 2.30m headroom.  She sleeps 10 guests with the master suite on deck and accommodates nine crew.
