U.S. CUSTOMS DUTY NOW PAID ON SCOUT II
July 2021

U.S. CUSTOMS DUTY NOW PAID ON SCOUT IICurrently available for inspection to US residents

When SCOUT II came back to the market in January, she was the most interesting exploration yacht under 500GT. If possible, she has become even more interesting following the payment of the US Customs duty. Now available for inspection by US residents in US waters, SCOUT II can be viewed by appointment in Maine.

Built by Brooke Yachts in 1993, SCOUT II underwent a multi-million-dollar refit in 2018 and the interior décor was refreshed in 2021. The 2018 refit was managed by Van Aller Yacht and Naval Design and entailed extending SCOUT II’s aft by 5m and forward by 1m, redesigning her bow and installing a new mast; she was also fully repainted. The bow redesign gives SCOUT II a modern look and the increased flare and height makes her dryer forward. In addition, key and machinery (zero speed stabilizers, generators and air conditioning) was replaced, added or remanufactured. 

The exterior and interior of SCOUT II were originally designed by Terry Disdale.  Disdale is renowned for creating refreshingly casual yet chic designs which balance contemporary elegance with relaxed comfort, coupled with an intelligent approach to the use of space. In 2021, the main deck salon and aft were refurbished with new soft goods, furniture and fabrics. The upper deck furniture and fabrics were also refreshed. The renovation was beautifully executed in true ‘beach house not penthouse’ Disdale style.

One of SCOUT II’s most interesting features is her 30ft beam, 4ft wider than is standard for a yacht of her size.  The additional width provides greater stability under way and at anchor and the deck space is increased dramatically, as is the interior volume.
A very seaworthy and capable yacht, SCOUT II has transatlantic range and a proven track record of global cruising.  She accommodates 9 guests in four staterooms (including two masters) and carries nine crew although she can be managed with less.

SCOUT II is asking USD 9,900.000. For more information contact Stuart at +1 954 328 6553 or

SIGNIFICANT PRICE REDUCTION ON SKAT
June 2021

SIGNIFICANT PRICE REDUCTION ON SKAT SKAT is now en route to Toulon, France

Stuart is pleased to announce a major price reduction for the 71m I 233’ SKAT. Formerly asking €56,500,000, the helicopter capable, long range motoryacht designed by Øeino and built by Lurssen is now competitively priced at €49,500,000. SKAT is en route to Toulon, ETA in La-Seyne-sur- mer, Toulon, France, today, June 25.

With her distinctive profile shaped by a succession of flat intersecting surfaces highlighted by the distinctive gray color – the only curved line is the flare of the bow -, SKAT has turned heads since she was launched. Her striking exterior lines are complemented by the timeless, minimalist interior by Marco Zanini.

One of SKAT most interesting design features is the bridge deck glass conservatory which allows natural light to come in from above and below and magnificent views over the ocean. SKAT has six double staterooms plus a child’s cabin which can also be used as an owner’s office. She has an elevator which serves all decks (including crew decks for ease of operations), a gym on the upper deck and a beach club with safe access to the sea.

SKAT was built to maximize comfort at sea and efficiency and is extremely quiet. To reduce noise and vibration, the engines, gensets, compressors and water makers are double-resilient mounted on a massive steel “raft” floating on 28 flexible mounts. The two exhaust systems in the upper engine room are encapsulated in stainless steel. In addition, floors and ceilings throughout the yacht are soft-mounted to eliminate propagation of noise or vibration through the hull and superstructure. 

SKAT carries two 8.5m tenders in her aft garage and has an additional garage for extra toys.

SIRONA III SOLD
June 2021

SIRONA III SOLDBuilt by Oceanfast to a Jon Bannenberg design

Stuart is pleased to announce the sale of SIRONA III, the 56.4 m I 185′1″ full steel and GRP yacht built by the Australian yard Oceanfast. One of the last yachts designed by the legendary Jon Bannenberg, Sirona III is as contemporary today as when she was launched in 2004.

Bannenberg’s collaboration with Oceanfast lasted a number of years and SIRONA III is arguably the best yacht Oceanfast ever built: her fit and finish inside and out are exceptional. Combined with the engineering and architectural prowess of Oceanfast, SIRONA III is a testament to style, safety, reliability, and craftsmanship. Austal, Australia's global shipbuilder, was responsible for the naval architecture.

SIRONA III’s modern art deco inspired interior created by OceanFast’s in-house design team led by Craig Beale. Her hallmark vertical windows offer excellent functionality and superior viewing perspectives compared to horizontally styled windows. She comfortably accommodates up to 16 guests in six cabins. Four staterooms, two doubles and two twins with pullman berths all with en suite bathrooms, are on the lower deck.

SIRONA III is a twin-screw oceangoing full displacement yacht powered by two Caterpillar 1,750hp engines. She is capable of a top speed of 15 knots and cruises at 12 knots. At 10 knots she has a maximum range of 5,200 nautical miles. On-board power is provided by three Caterpillar generators and SIRONA III is also fitted with Quantum zero speed stabilizers.
Marshall Island flagged, SIRONA III is classified by Lloyd’s and, although she has never chartered, is MCA compliant.

SIRONA III was asking USD 17,500,000.

She can reach a maximum speed of 16 knots and at 10 knots, has a range of 8,000nm. She is equipped with dynamic positioning and Rolls Royce retractable zero speed stabilizers.
LUMINOSITY’s remarkable interior features monumental installations like the 18-meter-high stairwell clad with 370m2 of interactive panels. The sense of space (3m headroom in the main salon) is enhanced by 800m2 of floor to ceiling windows, encasing almost the entire superstructure. Clever allusions to modern art are scattered through the 1,600m2 of owner accommodations while the 230m2 “third generation” beach club is simply in a class of its own. POA.

She was decommissioned in the late 90s and converted into an exploration yacht at Jade Yachts. The project was overseen by Gregory Marshall who was responsible for the naval architecture. The exterior lines were redesigned by the UK-based Reymond Langton.

Lloyd's classed, LY3 and Cayman MCA compliant, FELIX has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure and adds up to 1,622 GT. She is powered by two 3512 B Caterpillar engines and reaches a maximum speed of 14kn. At 12.5kn she has an 8,400 nm range.

SKAT AND SCOUT II AT RYBOVICH
March 2021

SKAT AND SCOUT II AT RYBOVICHAvailable for inspection during PBIBS

Stuart is pleased to announce that SKAT and SCOUT II will be berthed at Rybovich’s West Palm Beach Marina and available for inspection for the duration of the Palm Beach International Boat Show from the 25 to the 28 March.

Both yachts are exceptional in their class and stand out for the quality of design and build, level of maintenance and cruising track record.

The 40m I 130’ foot SCOUT II is a purpose-built ocean-going exploration yacht delivered by the British shipyard Brooks Marine in 1993. Robust and known for her excellent seakeeping, she has transatlantic range (4000nm) and a proven track record of global cruising. SCOUT II is powered by 3408-B Caterpillar engines and at 397 Gross Tons, she is unrivalled in her class in terms of volume, performance, deck space and versatility.

Between 2016 and 2018, SCOUT II underwent a multi-million-dollar upgrade and refit including a 5m extension aft and a 1m extension forward. The bow was reshaped and a new mast installed. Key machinery and systems were replaced or remanufactured, including zero speed stabilizers, new generators and air conditioning. She also boasts a sleek new paint job. All work was approved by Lloyds.

Her classic light interior was designed by Terry Disdale. SCOUT II can sleep 9 guests in four staterooms on the lower deck and carries 9 crew. Asking $9,900,000 SCOUT II represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a serious and well proven explorer yacht. View at
http://stuartlarsen.com/en/yacht-detail/02-yacht-for-sale/321-scout-ii.cfm

The 71m SKAT was launched in 2002 and cemented Lürssen’s reputation as a top builder of large yachts. Stark and imposing with beautifully clean lines, when she was launched SKAT broke with yacht design conventions. She remains as cutting edge today as when she was built.

The minimalist interior with ultra-clean lines was designed by Marco Zanini to match the exterior and maximize the use of space. Zanini worked with few materials and colors but achieved an elegant richness. The construction brief called for as much light as possible which is the reason for the glass conservatory on the bridge deck which allows natural light to come in from above and below, also affording magnificent views.

SKAT was built for comfort and performance. To ensure quiet operations, even by the strictest standards, machinery is mounted on double-resilient mounts while floors and ceilings throughout are soft-mounted. Skat can accommodate up to 12 guests in 6 staterooms plus 2 more in a child’s cabin and carries up to 20 crew. She has only been used privately.
Offered for sale by her original owner, SKAT is asking Euro 56.500.000. View at http://stuartlarsen.com/en/yacht-detail/02-yacht-for-sale/370-skat.cfm .

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.

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

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.

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.
