MIA ELISE II SOLD
December 2023

MIA ELISE II SOLDWith a stellar reputation for charter, the 60m Trinity is appreciated for her huge interior volume and exterior deck space

Stuart is pleased to announce the sale of the MIA ELISE II, the 60m (197’) Trinity built in 2012. MIA ELISE II is Stuart’s 5th sale in 2023 which also included  the delivery of the 75m/246’ Infinite Jest in June, for a total sales value of $400 million in 2023.  Interestingly, three of the yachts he sold this year (all Dutch-built) had been extended. The aft extensions enhanced their appeal on the brokerage market by modernizing the exterior lines and upgrading the much sought-after beach club facilities.

Back to MIA ELISE II. One of the largest yachts in the world capable of accessing Bahamian waters thanks to her 2.8m (just over 9’) draft, she is built entirely in aluminum with exterior design by Geoff Van Aller and naval architecture by Trinity. Cayman Islands registered, classed by ABS and MCA compliant and equipped with zero-speed stabilizers for comfort at anchor, MIA ELISE II earned a stellar reputation on the charter market.

Powered by twin 3516 Caterpillar engines, MIA ELISE II has a cruising speed of 11.0 knots and a top speed of 18.0 knots. At 11 knots her cruising range is 3,500 nautical miles. Proven beyond doubt, she has completed at least 15 Atlantic crossings on her own bottom.

At 916 GT, MIA ELISE II has an extraordinarily spacious interior for a 60m yacht, thanks to her split deck arrangement and good beam. Her exterior decks are equally out the ordinary, with the sundeck taking pride of place. Divided into three areas there is a sunbathing and relaxation area aft with al fresco dining for 12 guests. The enclosed gym and spa with a sauna and steam room are midships, while the forward deck features a huge whirlpool on the portside surrounded by sun pads and a wet bar starboard.

MIA ELISE II has a well-sized swim platform and beach club which was remodeled in 2022. She carries two tenders and a large fleet of water toys.
Her modern classic interior by Patrick Knowles is decorated in mahogany and Pacific Northwest madrone with cherry burl inlays. She was fully refit in 2022, and the interior was refurbished in 2020 and 2022. Her living areas on the main and Owner’s decks are spacious with large windows and offer different options for dining and relaxation. Like all Patrick Knowles interiors, MIA ELISE II is at once a “plush place of comfort and a most visually stunning environment”, as crisp now as when she was delivered.

MIA ELISE II accommodates up to 13 guests in seven staterooms. The forward-facing master suite with a charming private deck, a VIP and a single cabin are on the Owner’s deck while the remaining four staterooms, three doubles and a twin, are on the lower deck. The single stateroom on the Owner’s deck currently doubles as a private study.
MIA ELISE II can carry up to 16 crew members in 9 cabins including the captain’s and chief engineer’s cabins on the main deck.

Voluminous interior spaces, first class wellness facilities, versatile exterior decks, 9m / 30’ garaged tenders, long range and a proven track record of global navigation and charter.

LADY E can sleep up to 13 guests in 6 staterooms.  The Owners’ suite on the main deck forward includes a large Art Deco study and a grand, full-beam master stateroom. The spacious VIP has an ample bathroom and dressing area while the four guest cabins on the lower deck have an elegant and fresh Palm Beach vibe. There is also a staff cabin for two people on the bridge deck. LADY carries 19 crew.

Compliant for charter, Cayman flagged and classed by Lloyd’s, LADY E is powered by twin Caterpillar engines and has a cruising speed of 14 knots and top speed of 17.4 knots. At 12knots she has a 6000nm range.

November 2023

NEW CENTRAL LISTING - CALLIOPE The highly successful ‘ocean-ready’, large volume semi-custom yacht

 Stuart is pleased to announce his appointment as central agent for the sale of CALLIOPE, the 142’ semi-custom yacht built by Richmond in 2007.

An all-American classic with ocean-going capability and amazing volume, CALLIOPE is a brilliant example of Richmond’s successful strategy focused on semi-custom fiberglass yachts with high-quality interiors and innovative, including thoughtful features not found on competitor vessels.

Space was maximized inside and out - CALLIOPE feels much larger than her 43m /395 gross tons - and her functional layout designed for leisure and entertainment reflects the more informal approach to yachting appreciated by the American market. There is an owner’s open galley and less partitioning than in a European yacht.

CALLIOPE’s all-American build team included the award-winning naval architect, Ward Setzer known for his “go anywhere bluewater ready" yachts.  Her functional interior by Sven Pavlik featuring impeccably book-matched mahogany veneer joinery, can accommodate up to 12 guests in 6 double staterooms, as well as 8 crew members. The master suite with private office, his and her bathrooms and walk-in cedar-lined closet, is on the main deck and two twin and two queen staterooms are on the lower deck. There is a VIP on the bridge deck that doubles as the captains’ cabin when not used by guests.

With al fresco dining on the main and upper decks, one of CALLIOPE’s key attractions is her huge sun deck, built around a central whirlpool. It has a bar and an observation area forward, while the tender storage area aft is used as a sunbathing area when the tenders are in the water.
She carries two RIB tenders, a 16’ Walker Bay RIB tender with a 90HP Yamaha outboard engine and a 10’ AB Lammina RIB with an electric engine. Both tenders were new in 2022.

Built to go anywhere, CALLIOPE has a shallow draft for coastal cruising but is a proven world cruiser and recently completed a three-year circumnavigation of the globe. A bulbous bow was added during the 2022 refit for fuel efficiency. Classed by ABS, although CALLIOPE is now used privately, she has an enviable track-record on the international charter market. 
CALLIOPE is US duty paid and asking USD 15,500,000. she can be viewed by appointment.

NEW CENTRAL LISTING – OLYMPUS
September 2023

NEW CENTRAL LISTING – OLYMPUSOne of the most luxurious Feadships ever built - even by Feadship’s exacting standards

Stuart is pleased to announce the central agency listing of the 55 meter / 180’ OLYMPUS custom built by Van Lent in 1996. Olympus was one of the last yachts designed by the legendary naval architect Frits De Voogt who worked on the exterior design and layout with a youthful Andrew Winch. Winch was also responsible for the opulent and imaginative interior.

Her clean exterior design reflected Feadship’s shift towards more futuristic design while her striking interior showcased the shipyard’s craftsmanship at it best. In 1997, Olympus won the prestigious International Superyacht Society Awards for the best motor yacht over 43m.

Pioneering for 1996, OLYMPUS packs a lot into 881 gross tons. Beautifully built, she is exceptionally spacious for a 55 meter yacht accommodating up to 16 guests in 8 staterooms, including two master suites. She carries two large tenders plus two Sea-Doos on the sundeck and is helicopter capable - another rare feature for a 55 me yacht. Her ‘touch and go’ 3,100kg helideck can land an EC 135 or similar in private use.
In 2023, Olympus underwent a seven-figure technical refit at Monaco Marine in La Ciotat as well as interior upgrades to the crew and guest areas.

Olympus’s interior design has withstood the test of time. Her airy main and bridge salons with cream-colored furnishings by Silverlining have been refurbished in soft pastel blue and pink respectively, giving her an elegant Palm Beach vibe. Her staterooms are equally spacious and welcoming. The forward-facing master suite on the main deck includes a study, hair salon, walk-in closet, bathroom and the stateroom (with a Caesar bed) opening onto the observation area. The second suite on the bridge deck can incorporate the bridge deck salon and aft deck.

Cayman flagged, LY2 compliant and classed by Lloyds, Olympus is powered by two Caterpillar engines. At her cruising speed of 11.5knots she has a 4,000 nm range and can reach a top speed of 17 knots. Asking USD 28.5 million, Olympus is one of the most livable, best maintained and fairly priced Feadships on the market today.

HERE COMES THE SUN SOLD
August 2023

HERE COMES THE SUN SOLD Well-maintained, pedigree yachts continue to command strong interest on the brokerage market

Stuart is pleased to announce the sale of the 89m HERE COMES THE SUN. “While the market has cooled off compared to 2021 and 2022, it remains buoyant in the large yacht segment where demand for quality yachts still outstrips supply”. HERE COMES THE SUN, listed for sale in March 2023, asking USD 195m, sold in only 5 months.

Launched in 2017, HERE COMES THE SUN is the largest custom-built yacht delivered by Amels. In 2021 she was extended by 6m /19’6”. The work was masterminded by her original naval architect, Azure Yacht Design, and carried out by Amels who expertly streamlined Heywood’s original lines.
What makes here comes the sun such a successful yacht? Under 3000 GT, HERE COMES THE SUN combines top build quality, a splendid exterior design by Tim Heywood with a functional interior layout and inspired décor that is perfectly suited for ocean living. She works brilliantly. The vast deck spaces are broken into conversation areas, so they are people rather than design oriented. The layout flows both for the guests and crew.

On board facilities include a deep aft deck swimming pool, a spa with massage and hairdressing salon, a huge beach club open on three sides with a 60m2 swim platform, a cinema seating 10 people and an inside-outside gym and a whirlpool on the sundeck. 
HERE COMES THE SUN sleeps up to 20 guests in 10 staterooms. In addition to the Owner’s 6-room private apartment on the owner’s deck, there are two VIPs and seven double staterooms.  

HERE COMES THE SUN is also extremely capable. Built to LY3 and Cayman flagged, she carries three large tenders, a fleet of toys and a large inflatable marina with a pool. The single ‘touch and go’ heli pad on the bow was deemed inadequate for an 89m yacht so a second pad was built on the sun deck aft so helicopter operations could continue even with one aircraft on board. The heli decks can land and carry a Bell 429 or an EC 145.

Equipped with zero-speed stabilizers, she is powered by twin Caterpillar engines that give her speeds up to 17.5 knots. At her cruising speed of 13 knots, she has a 7,000nm range.  Very few yachts under 3000GT are built to such a high standard, a key factor to her short time on the market.

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 SOLD
April 2023

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.

HERE COMES THE SUN: AMELS\' FLAGSHIP SUPERYACHT FOR SALE FOLLOWING A MAJOR REBUILD
April 2023

HERE COMES THE SUN: AMELS' FLAGSHIP SUPERYACHT FOR SALE FOLLOWING A MAJOR REBUILDby Alexander Griffiths, SuperYachtTimes

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 SUN
April 2023

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.
