NEW CENTRAL LISTING: the 74.5m (244\') LADY E
May 2023

NEW CENTRAL LISTING: the 74.5m (244') LADY ECustom-built by Amels, in 2020 LADY E was extended to incorporate superb wellness and watersports facilities with AVIT to match

The 74.5m (244’) Lady E was designed with great artistic skill and technical capability by Amels’ naval architects and Walter Franchini who, inspired by modernist art, fused many key elements in her exterior and interior design.

Custom built to a very high standard, Lady E incorporates the latest technology to ensure she is quiet, ‘green’, secure, low maintenance, and offers an easy working environment for the crew. She has been refit and maintained to exceptionally high standards, so age has not taken a toll on her condition or design.

Designed around a central staircase with spacious salons and large windows, Lady E can accommodate 13 guests in 6 staterooms including a full-beam Master suite with library and a large on deck VIP. All guest staterooms have ensuite bathrooms with tubs. There is a guest elevator serving the lower to gym deck.

In 2020, Lady E underwent a 6m (20’) extension to modernize the original “home on the water” concept and enhance the experiential side of ocean living. The already expansive exterior deck spaces were increased by 120m2 (1,292sq ft), adding 55m2 (592 sq ft) to the main deck aft and a 65m2 (699 sq ft) beach club on the lower deck. The yacht’s profile was streamlined, accentuating the long horizontal deck lines, punctuated by short vertical mullions. Her audio-visual complement was totally new during the 2020 rebuild and is state of the art.

Lady E offers the full package in terms of wellness and fitness. The enlarged transom door now opens onto a full beam swim platform with actuated swim stairs. The full-beam beach club is special. It’s finished with nightclub-spec audio and light systems and functions as a watersports platform with a large selection of toys on display plus a bar, television and a large relaxation area. There is additional guest seating and sunbathing on the main deck with an uninterrupted panoramic view through the glass panels framing the aft deck.

The bridge deck was remodeled to include a wellbeing area by Exclusive Living next door to the fully enclosed gym and a new Hammam steam room and day head were added to the bridge deck forward.
Cayman flagged and classified as LY3 by Lloyds, Lady E has an impressive track record of global cruising and is one of the most successful charter yachts in her class.

Lady E is currently in the South of France and is asking €71,500,000. For more information contact Stuart at +1 954 328 6553 or .

ICON SOLDWell-priced, northen Europen yachts continue to command interest in the post-pandemic market

Stuart is pleased to announce the sale of the 67.5m ICON, built by Icon Yachts in 2010. While demand is normalising back to pre-pandemic levels, well-priced Northen Europen ready-to-use yachts still command interest across the market.

ICON was the first yacht to be based on a pre-engineered platform similar to what is used in commercial building. The shipyard was able to deliver a fully customized Dutch-quality yacht in 2/3 of the time normally required. ICON was the first in a trend that would become standard yacht building practice over the next ten years.

Custom built from the waterline up, Jouke Van Der Baan and Kyp supported ICON’s in-house team of naval architects while the exterior styling was entrusted to Redman Whitely Dixon (now RWD). The contemporary interior design was by Studio Linse, known for the “noble simplicity” of their projects.

In 2015, ICON returned to Icon Yachts for a 5m extension, which increased her volume to 1295GT.  ICON now features an aft deck swimming pool and a beautiful beach club built around a state-of-the-art wellness area with a massage room, gym, sauna, and inside and outside showers. The swim platform is furnished with sun loungers and a bar. Very few yachts of her size have such outstanding facilities.

ICON’s innovative layout ensures that the interior and exterior areas come together to maximize the enjoyment of ocean living. Her well-planned interior balances comfort with functionality. ICON sleeps up to 13 guests. Accommodations include an owners’ private apartment across two decks linked by a private staircase. The area can be shut off for complete privacy. There are a VIP and children’s or nanny’s stateroom on the upper deck and four guest staterooms on the lower deck with direct access to the beach club. ICON accommodates 19 crew members.

ICON is powered by twin MTU 12V4000 engines of 2,480hp each, giving her a maximum speed of 16 knots. At her cruising speed of 13 knots she has a range of 6000nm. She is equipped with Quantum Zero Speed stabilizers engineered for peak performance at 15 knots underway and optimum roll damping while at anchor.

Designed for extensive world cruising, flagged in the Cayman Islands and complying with LY2, ICON has been a very successful charter yacht. 
ICON was asking EUR 45 million and is EU VAT paid.

Amel’s flagship 89-metre superyacht Here Comes The Sun has joined the market, with Stuart Larsen of Fraser Yachts and Tim Vickers of Burgess acting as joint Central Agents.

A true modern-day classic on a grand scale and born twice in a decade, Here Comes The Sun was delivered in 2017 as Amels’ flagship and relaunched — even larger — in 2021, following an extensive year-long rebuild. She’s arresting, sophisticated and undoubtedly a “work of art”, as exterior designer Tim Heywood describes her.
The motor yacht for sale was first commissioned by repeat Amels’ clients, to replace their 65.7-metre Ventum Maris (ex. Imagine), the firstborn of the Amels Limited Editions 212 series. For Here Comes The Sun, the same virtuoso design team was deployed — and it shows.

Here Comes The Sun is a truly personal yacht, built around the lifestyle preferences of her current owner and a testament to the spirit of leisure and hospitality. Designed around people rather than an exercise in design for design's sake, her general arrangement is outstanding: the flow just works seamlessly both for guests and crew. She has a calm, radiant character emanating effortless grace – yet her commanding presence also demands great respect.

With Tim Heywood and Winch Design handling her exterior and interior respectively and naval architecture by Amels and Azure, Here Comes The Sun is a true ocean-going superyacht that has the performance to match her appearance. Originals plans were for her to be the pioneering Amels Limited Editions to breach the 80-metre mark but, as work progressed, the project was ‘personalised’ beyond recognition and Amels’ flagship was to remain a one-off. A unique full-custom project.

Here Comes The Sun joined the market in 2019 and was snapped up in less than four months. Her new owner saw her potential, and immediately had plans to upgrade and refine her further.
To preserve pedigree, the yacht for sale returned to Amels in 2020, where the naval architect, Azure Yacht Design, oversaw the rebuild honoring her original character.  Here Comes The Sun was relaunched with an additional 6-metres in length and her volume increased from 2,827 to 2,955 Gross Tons. Her exterior saw two sculptured balconies added on the bridge deck, her steel bulwark dropped by 45 centimeters on main deck, a second helipad installed, and her swim platform extended to a whopping 60 square-meters. She also left with a fresh paint scheme – a Flag Blue hull and Oyster White superstructure with details highlighted in anthracite grey – which is all the more arresting. 

More space brought more amenities and post-refit, Here Comes The Sun now boasts a 7 x 4 meter pool — deep enough to dive into — on the main deck, a full-beam beach club, two VIP staterooms on the bridge deck, a gym on the sundeck and many new lounge and conversational areas. Inside and out, Here Comes The Sun is all about the enjoyment of ocean living, with even the decks arranged to make the most of the view whether you are chatting, dining or just working out.
Some of the notable features onboard this Amels yacht for sale include her many lounge areas, a cinema, and a stunning 70 square-meter beach club. It opens on three sides with fold-down platforms port, starboard and aft with the teak deck remaining completely flush throughout. The adjacent wellness area is complete with a sauna, Turkish bath and chilled plunge pool, plus a massage area and hair salon. Finally, the 245 square-meter sun deck is equipped with an inside-outside gym, whirlpool and a huge relaxation area with a bar and al fresco dining.

Her spacious interior is decorated in blues and white with touches of Dolce Gabbana, creating a wonderful Mediterranean vacation vibe.  New elegantly-carved bleached oak paneling replaces the original dark wood paneling.  Natural materials, clean lines and rounded surfaces offset the interior décor. Soft, brushed and polished Perrera limestone imported from Spain, Sahara Gold and Emperador marble are used throughout the yacht, together with brushed bronze fixtures in the bathrooms. Nothing ostentatious; nothing shiny nor hard, just a design that reflects Heywood’s bold statement: “Here Comes The Sun is a work of art”.

The architecture is as sophisticated as the design. Her main staircase, spiraling round the central bronze and glass elevator which goes from the lower deck to the sundeck, is cantilevered, giving the impression that each step is suspended and floating.
The yacht, Here Comes The Sun, for sale, offers accommodation for as many as 20 guests in 10 staterooms and 28 crew. The 6-roomed owners’ apartment on their private deck, opening onto the bow, is a private place on a private deck. Portside is feminine and finished with creams and mother of pearl inlay. It has a bathroom, dressing room and drawing room that opens onto a large balcony.  Starboard side accommodates His study, more masculine in style with leather furnishing and a club-like feel, enjoying the same spectacular balcony and views.
Her remaining accommodation comprises two new VIPs on the bridge deck – both of which benefit from those 12-metre-long sculpted balconies – and seven staterooms on the main deck. The arrangement is ingenious as four staterooms can be turned into two interconnecting suites with a bedroom, lounge and twin bathrooms.

Here Comes The Sun has two helipads, a touch-and-go on the foredeck and a landing pad on the sundeck, allowing her to function as a heliport even when carrying a helicopter onboard. She can land a Bell 429 or EC 145 on either pad.

She also has a full garage with three tenders, including a seven-meter Nautique GS23 Ski Boat, a nine-meter D-RIB Tender capable of speeds of 40 knots, and a 10.5-metre full-custom limousine that can carry 12 guests, both built by Yachtwerft Meyer.

Constructed with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure and equipped with twin Caterpillar engines, Here Comes The Sun has a transatlantic range of 5,500 nautical miles at 15 knots. Her top speed is 17.5 knots. She’s Cayman flagged and was built to LY3.
Here Comes The Sun is a superyacht that exudes power and stature. Amels couldn’t have put it better “This is a yacht to enjoy the best of ocean life on a grand and timeless scale. ”

NEW CENTRAL LISTING – HERE COMES THE SUNThe most exciting yacht over 80m on the market

Stuart is pleased to announce the central agency listing of the 89m HERE COMES THE SUN built by Amels in 2017.

The flagship of the Amels fleet, HERE COMES THE SUN’s powerful exterior lines were designed by Tim Heywood while the graceful interior was originally by Winch. In 2020 she returned to Amels for a 6m extension masterminded by the naval architects Azure in close collaboration with the owner’s team.

The result is spectacular. The new bold Flag blue and Oyster white paintwork with details in anthracite grey accentuate her sleek lines and curves. Her layout is equally successful. Designed for ocean-living around people rather than design-centric, her well-laid out interior areas and decks flow seamlessly both for guests and crew.

Her exterior deck space has been increased significantly with the addition of a 245sqm sundeck and a 60sqm swim platform. An elevator serves all decks from the sundeck to the lower deck. Other features include two helicopter landing decks, a ‘touch and go’ helipad on the bow and brand new a landing pad on the sundeck. Both can land a Bell 429 or an EC 145.

Her interior has also been refreshed and upgraded. Two large VIP suites have been built on the bridge deck, both with 12m sculpted balconies mirroring similar balconies on the bridge and main deck. Her welcoming main salon and sky lounge, paneled in honey colored oak boiserie, are decorated in blues, cream and white and chic modern furniture.

Her wellness facilities, almost unique for a yacht of her size, include an inside-outside gym on the sundeck, a 7m x 4m pool deep enough to dive on the main deck as well as a spa with a plunge pool, sauna, Hamman, massage and hairdressing area on the lower deck. The adjacent 70 sqm beach club has fold-down platforms on port, starboard and aft.

HERE COMES THE SUN accommodates 20 guests in 10 staterooms plus a staff cabin. She carries 28 crew. The owner’s deck includes a six-roomed private apartment with “his and her” bathrooms and dressing rooms, “his” study and “her” drawing room and a forward-facing master stateroom opening onto the bow with a sheltered private deck.

Built to LY3 and under 3000 GT, HERE COMES THE SUN is powered by two caterpillar engines and, at 13.5 knots, has a 7,100 nm range. Her max speed in 17knots.  She carries three tenders and an array of toys in her full-beam garage.

Built on a grand scale with headroom over 2.20m throughout, HERE COMES THE SUN is a testament to Amels capabilities and the vision of her current owner who transformed her into one of the most exciting yachts of her day.

The legacy of a Legend: Nobiskrug’s 92m superyacht Tatoosh
September 2022

The legacy of a Legend: Nobiskrug’s 92m superyacht TatooshThe yacht that launched both a shipyard and contemporary yachting

The turn of the millennium marked a pivotal moment in the history and heritage of superyacht design. It was a period when a swath of groundbreaking models were delivered and precisely in those few years that wrapped the moment we moved into the 21st Century. Nobiskrug’s 92-metre superyacht Tatoosh is one of the giants that stands proud as a definition of change – and has only grown in prestige since her launch. Her delivery was monumental not only for her builder Nobiskrug, which rebranded itself following Tatoosh as a leading superyacht builder, but for superyacht design more generally.

With Tatoosh now back on the market, SuperYacht Times caught up with Stuart Larsen of Fraser Yachts and Matt Emerson of Burgess who are co-representing her. Having sold her to her current owner, Larsen remembered the project well.

Nobiskrug delivered Tatoosh in 2000, during an era where we flirted with dial-up modems and became aware just how impactful the internet would be in shaping the future. A collection of tech entrepreneurs was driving this future and, more aware than most of how technology would enable them to spend time almost anywhere and continue to be productive, were in search of new frontiers. Many of them turned to superyachts which, thanks to IT, enabled them to combine work, adventure and entertainment. The first wave of US tech moguls were not only new clients to the industry but came with a series of ideas, demands and the finance to drive them. It was the dawn of a new era of superyachts.

One such client and his project manager Claus Kusch approached Nobiskrug – the German shipbuilder with a century worth of boat building under its belt – to construct a custom-built superyacht. This was a pivotal moment for Nobiskrug as, until this order, the yard had only built commercial and cruise vessels; Tatoosh was its inaugural entry into the superyacht sector. It was a large vote of confidence from the owner, but Nobiskrug’s vast portfolio was enough for him to entrust them to build one of the world’s largest superyachts.

“A lot was vested in her success,” Stuart Larsen reflected. “Nobiskrug was a skilled commercial shipyard interested in a new market. They started big and built on that experience gaining a reputation for full-custom new constructions and ingenious building methods. But Tatoosh was instrumental to that process.”

“Claus Kusch, Tatoosh’s exterior designer, was also absolutely pivotal to the project,” Larsen continued. “Kusch pioneered some of the most ground-breaking yachts in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. So, when the client decided to build a yacht, he went straight to Kusch. Claus was hugely experienced, a tough negotiator, chain smoker and workaholic, client-centric and absolutely brilliant.”

“Nobiskrug had the skills, expertise and organization but needed an interface, someone who could guide them through transition to the new yachting market. Claus Kusch was an inspired choice – although he also rode the yard very hard. He excelled at managing the armies of skilled subcontractors, which are part and parcel of all yacht construction, yard and he knew yachting. Nobiskrug got the best of both worlds.” Kusch was a naval architect and project manager by trade but brought a unique approach to his craft. What raised Kusch above a number of his contemporaries, Larsen and Emerson agreed, is that he “would design a yacht from the initial concept, including naval architecture and styling, and then go on to manage the project to the end of the warranty period. Kusch yachts were 100 percent custom made.”

Tatoosh, of course, is testament to this. But then so also is the classic 48-metreLady Georgina (ex Katalina) by Amels, which he oversaw the project management of in the early 1980s. The 75-metre superyacht Meserret III (ex Leander G) by Peene-Werft GmbH, delivered in 1992, was another Kusch-designed predecessor of Tatoosh. Notably this was a similar story to Tatoosh, as Peene-Werft GmbH was a commercial shipyard that worked with Kusch on its first superyacht project. However, unlike Nobiskrug, Leander G was the yard’s first and last new-build superyacht project before it was acquired by Lürssen in 2013.
During the year 2000 another of Kusch’s designs hit the water, the 112-metre superyacht Le Grand Blue, which had proved instrumental to the construction of Tatoosh. Kusch didn’t just pen the naval architecture of Le Grand Blue though, as her exterior designer, Stefano Pastrovich explained, “The control of the entire construction and management was done not by a shipyard but by one man, Claus Kusch”. LGB didn’t look like a yacht on the outside but she’s 100 percent yacht inside.

Following Tatoosh, Nobiskrug has delivered a further 11 superyachts, including the famed 80-metre superyacht Artefact, and the world’s largest sailing yacht, Sailing Yacht A. The yard currently has two projects in-build, the 70-metre Miza which will be delivered imminently, and the highly anticipated 77-metre  Black Shark, which is slated to hit the water next year. But this whole dynasty is based on the Tatoosh bedrock, which grew from the US tech boom and the conversations that spurred on the construction of this 92-metre superyacht.

“Nobiskrug has embedded much of Claus Kusch’s approach in their DNA,” Emerson explained. “The yard is still ‘known for pushing the boundaries and for not being a mass builder, able to embody the unique vision of the owner combined with innovative ideas and advanced technology’. Tatoosh set new boundaries and Nobiskrug became a serious new player in the yachting industry almost overnight.”

Larsen continued, “This fruitful partnership was not coincidental. The owner who built Tatoosh was very well acquainted with Le Grand Bleu and certainly influenced by her capability and range if not her rougher exterior. When he decided to build, he approached Claus Kusch who was responsible for the naval architecture, exterior design and project management of the new build, including the yard’s selection process.” Kusch worked in collaboration with Studio Yacht, the Rotterdam-based studio, on the exterior design of Tatoosh – the duo worked in unison during later years on the design of the 110-metresuperyacht I Dynasty and the 133-metre  Al Murqab. As was in vogue during the period, Tatoosh was penned with long flowing lines which are punctuated by small windows that run the length of her superstructure and which tighten forward at the helm and pilot station.

“Unlike more recent platform yachts, where the exterior design is often driven by fashion trends, the design of Tatoosh’s exterior (and layout) was driven by function,” Larsen said. “Kusch’s ability lay in blending function and aesthetics to create efficient yet captivating exterior lines. The turn-of-the-century industry and billionaires were tech-driven, the first generation to appreciate the scope of cellular phones and the internet, which gave them an appreciation for capability and purpose over fashion for fashion’s sake. As a result, Totoosh’s exterior has not dated, she has simply become a classic.”

Spanning five decks and boasting 3,229 GT of interior volume, Tatoosh was the largest superyacht, by volume, to be destined for waters outside of the Middle East. A superyacht of such grand statute needs an interior that carries her grace, and the highly acclaimed UK-based Terence Disdale Design studio was enlisted for the job. Tatoosh can accommodate up to 19 guests in 11 guest suites, each brimming with that Disdale charm, while her owner is graced with an ingenious twin-level private apartment that occupies the forward section of the yacht across two decks. The owner is offered the same level of privacy as if the suite spanned a full, single deck; however, by offering a split-levelled space, guests don’t feel overlooked as they can still access all decks, without encroaching on the owner’s privacy or feeling that large sections of the yacht are off limits.

The apartment itself is striking and split into daytime and nighttime areas. The former includes a gym, a private study and a large forward-facing observation lounge designed for family use. While the latter, situated on the main deck, is home to a massage room, two VIP or children’s staterooms and the master suite itself. The suite is full-beam with large windows. The central sleeping area has a small salon starboard and a study portside. Access to the large bathroom can be found through his and her dressing rooms.

“Disdale was at the top of his game and the master of the GA at the turn of the century. Trained by Bannenberg, his ‘beach-house not pent-house’ approach was perfect for 21st century yachting. Disdale focused on ensuring yachts were not only beautiful and elegant but livable and efficient,” Matt Emerson said.

Tatoosh was built for ocean-going cruising and long-distance voyages, and Disdale fed this essence into her design-DNA, ensuring that there’s entertainment for all those onboard. To name but a few, Tatoosh has large swimming pool that doubles-down as a dancefloor when not in use, an impressive screening room decorated in rich, red velvet, a wellness suite that’s spread across a number of decks, an arsenal of tenders (all of which are original) and not one, but two helipads, one of which has a dedicated helicopter spares store, a helicopter refueling station and an approved fire station – allowing the yacht to be used like a small heliport.

It’s not only guests who’ll be aboard for those long voyages though, but also her 31 crew. Disdale ensured that their quarters are also generous and a pleasure to be in. “The standard of finish and materials used is high and all crew areas are in mint condition belaying the yacht’s age,” Emerson added. “Crew quarters were not an afterthought to be squeezed in before the days of stringent classification requirements. And in terms of longevity, Tatoosh current crew complement is a testament to her design.”

While Disdale was busy with bringing the comforts for long-range exploration, Nobiskrug had the challenge of actualizing the demand – and the shipyard went above and beyond. When launched, Tatoosh was one of the quietest yachts afloat and she’s since cruised in waters all around the world (name a place and Tatoosh has been there!). Thanks to twin DEUTZ-MWM diesel engines with Visco Masse rubber mounts, she boasts an impressive 7,000 nautical mile range when cruising at speeds of 12.5 knots.
“The choice of Deutz engines was driven by their proven design which ensures high reliability, long engine life and extra-long TBO’s. Maintenance work is required only after many operating hours and can be done quickly without extended downtime. Low fuel consumption makes for low operating costs and low exhaust emissions make for a cleaner environment,” Emerson explained.

Tatoosh has been meticulously maintained and systematically upgraded and refitted over the years, her most recent appointment was an extensive 12-month refit with Kusch Yachts in Germany, completed April last year. Some of the highlights of the works include a 20-year Lloyds Class Survey, a full repaint of both the hull and superstructure, a plethora of mechanical services and the refurbishment of the crew areas. Tatoosh also had a new Audio-Visual system installed and her tenders were serviced and repainted.

“Today, after 20 years of exploration yachts getting more and more hype and exposure, we forget how extraordinary Tatoosh was when she was delivered in 2000,” Larsen concludes. “She not only set a new benchmark for construction, but also opened yachtsmen’s eyes to the boundless possibilities of global exploration prompting them to rethink how they wanted to use and build their yachts. She marks the beginning of contemporary expeditionary yachting, and her influence is still felt 20 years later.”

Tatoosh is on the market, listed with Stuart Larsen of Fraser Yachts and Matt Emerson of Burgess acting as co-central agents. She’ll be on display at the Monaco Yacht Show 2022.
