New Central Agency M/Y PODIUMThe most interesting 60m on the market today
By any standard, Podium is a very special listing. Built by a yachting enthusiast for long range cruising in all climates, she is the result of the now legendary Oieno/Lurssen collaboration. She is a modern classic with sleek sporty lines, a well-thought out GA and versatile deck space. The panoramic lounge on the Sun Deck can be opened up or fully closed, depending on the weather.
Maintained and operated to exacting standards by the same Owner and Captain for the past 7 years, Podium underwent a multi-million euro refit at Feadship, Makkum in 2015. Key equipment and machinery were serviced and a new paint job and interior refit ensured her superb overall condition, inside and out. Matthew Trustam oversaw the interior refit to refresh the original Zuretti decor. Although Podium is built to Lloyds and MCA, she has never chartered.
Podium is asking USD 42.500.000. For more info, check out http://stuartlarsen.com/en/yacht-detail/02-yacht-for-sale/248-podium.cfm
ON BOARD PLANET NINE A taste of future yachting
Much has been written about Millennials and the future of yachting. If we look back to the 90s and the first generation of IT and hedge fund entrepreneurs, the majority moved into yachting only their after businesses had been consolidated. In a break with the past, and rather than buying into the glitzy champagne Med life-style, they focused on adventure yachting projects. They wanted yachts that could do things, go places and accomplish some form of new and exciting ground-breaking activity.
Millennials will undoubtably continue this trend – in a few years when their businesses claim less of their attention. Planet Nine is a forerunner of this market. She has range and capability. She is intimate and versatile with numerous areas which can double as something else depending where Planet Nine is and how she is being used. She is equally at home in hot and cold climates. She was built for sharing, planning and exploring far-flung regions.
