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.

SCOUT II is one of the first purpose-built exploration yachts, pre-dating the current trend by over 25 years. Built to a tough specification, her exterior is a masterpiece of rugged strength and power. She was delivered by the British shipyard Brooke Yachts in 1993.

Extremely well priced and in excellent condition following a huge upgrade in 2018, SCOUT II is now one of the most interesting deals on the exploration yacht market under 500GT. The upgrade included a 5m extension aft and a 1m extension forward and the installation of a new mast. The bow was reshaped, all key machinery and systems replaced or remanufactured, including zero speed stabilizers, new generators and air conditioning. All work was approved by Lloyds.

SCOUT II has transatlantic range and a proven track record of global cruising.  She has huge outside deck spaces on all decks, large interior areas thanks to her 9.2m (almost 30’) beam and accommodates 9 guests in four staterooms (including two masters). The interior is in true yacht style, finished in limed teak, blues and white. Designed by Terence Disdale, SCOUT II offers a high degree of privacy with crew and guest areas cleverly separated.

NEW CENTRAL AGENCY - SIRONA III
October 2020

NEW CENTRAL AGENCY - SIRONA IIIThe 56.40m I 185'0" Jon Bannenberg design built by Oceanfast

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. The naval architecture was entrusted to Oceanfast’s owning company, the global shipbuilder Austal Ships, known to deliver performance, comfort, economy and reliability.

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.
Sirona III’s layout is versatile and optimizes interior and exterior space. There are a number of original outside entertaining areas: a great exterior forward lounge area on the bridge deck and a bar with al fresco dining on the sun deck. 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.

Built by an experienced yachtsman and maintained in top condition, Sirona has only had two owners and has never been chartered.
Sirona III is asking USD 17,500,000. Currently she is lying in Fort Lauderdale and can be viewed by appointment. Please contact Stuart at +1 954 328 6553 or
Stuart.Larsen@fraseryachts.com . Please note that Sirona III is not offered for sale to US residents while in US waters.

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.

45m (147’) AWATEA SOLDStuarts fifth sale of 2020

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. Correctly priced and in excellent condition, Awatea (former My Trust) had not reached the market, but was based in Antibes. 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.

BLUE TOO SOLD
July 2020

BLUE TOO SOLD 34m performance ketch built by Alloy Yachts

SStuart is pleased to announce the sale of the sailing yacht Blue Too, his fourth sale in 2020. Notwithstanding the unprecedented global health crisis, interest in yachting remains steady, including interest from younger, first time buyers and also due to low interest rates and a relatively stable stock market.

BLUE TOO is a superb world cruiser designed by Ron Holland globally known for his successful maxi-racers and large, performance-oriented cruising yachts. Built in 1998 by Alloy Yachts in New Zealand she has been maintained in mint condition with two full refits in 2008 and 2016. A Patton survey completed in 2019 concluded that "BLUE TOO is a well-built yacht designed for world cruising. She has been proven over her lifetime with many Transocean passages, both Atlantic and Pacific. The vessel has been maintained very well by her present owner and crew with several major refits and up-graded equipment. She is in first class cruising condition”.

BLUE TOO includes state-of-the-art equipment like in-furling booms, bow and stern thrusters and a hydraulic transom with a fold-down stairway to the bathing platform. With a total sail area of 6,675 sq ft (620 sq m) last season she won the St Barths Bucket in her class with three first place finishes and the largest cumulative margin ever recorded in the Bucket's history.

Her performance under sail is only matched by the superb quality of the Redman Whiteley Dixon interior and layout. A very interesting feature is her two-cockpit design.  The spacious central cockpit offers superb seating, sailing comfort and room for al fresco dining while there is a private owner’s cockpit aft with direct access from the master stateroom.
BLUE TOO can accommodate six guests and all staterooms have entertainment centers and en-suite bathroom facilities, while a further two cabins sleep five crew.
BLUE TOO was asking USD 4,900,000.

Stuart is pleased to announce the sale of MAG III, his third sale in 2020 after the 74m Odyssey and the 41m Dreamer.

The swim platform is accessed from the main deck aft. The tender garage doors fold down creating a large area on the water and when the toys are out of the garage the area becomes a beach club.

MAG III accommodates 12 guests in five staterooms. The full beam master stateroom on the main deck is very spacious with a private study, an unusual 270-degree panoramic view from the stateroom, his and her baths, generous closets and storage space. The stateroom opens onto a private veranda forward.
At USD 10,750,000 MAG III was more competitively priced than other Visions on the market which did not offer the same amenities, technical standard and levels of maintenance.

SEA FOREVER – EN-ROUTE TO THE US
July 2020

SEA FOREVER – EN-ROUTE TO THE USScheduled to arrive at the end of July

Sea Forever is returning to the US and scheduled to reach Savannah (Georgia) at the end of July.  She has cruised from Tahiti under her own steam, just one more chapter in her world-class track record.
Built by the Vancouver-based ABD Aluminum Yachts, one of the best regarded aluminum yacht builders in North America, SEA FOREVER (ex. Polar Bear) was designed to cruise in remote locations where the need for room, range, storage and efficiency is paramount. In fact, Sea Forever has more usable volume than any other 93' yacht on the water. In addition, she has a 7.2m beam and an imposing bow rising one-and-a-half decks above the water. The bow improves fuel efficiency and reduces pitching. On delivery, Ed Fry commented that “She’s built to survive 20-foot waves without shipping water.”
 
Launched in 2007, for the next ten years Sea Forever only cruised in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska during summer months. The current owners purchased her in 2017 and stepped up the game. In 2018 she navigated the Sea of Cortez to northern Panama before returning to San Diego for an extensive yard period at Marine Group Boat Works. The last 18 months have been spent cruising through the South Pacific with stops in Perlas Islands, Panama; Galapagos; Marquesas, Society Islands and Tuamotus in French Polynesia.
Sea Forever has a proven track record in good and bad weather and is economical and efficient to operate. She has also been rigorously maintained and shows like new.
 
The interior by David Boudreau is in unstained maple with light fabrics. The overall effect is subtle and airy enhanced by the large windows on all levels ensuring Sea Forever feels larger than her 216 GT.
She can accommodate 8 guests in three staterooms on the Main deck plus the Master suite on the Bridge deck. The master is completely private with large windows on port and starboard and a sizeable personal aft deck.
Sea Forever carries two good size tenders and has an extended beach club with a large lazarette kitted out to store scuba gear.
 
Sea Forever is asking $6,500,000 and will be viewable by appointment on arrival. Please note Sea Forever is not for sale to US Residents in US Waters. For more information contact Stuart at +1 954 328 6553 or
Stuart.Larsen@fraseryachts.com and check out  http://stuartlarsen.com/en/yacht-detail/02-yacht-for-sale/352-sea-forever.cfm .
