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

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.

Sirona III’s layout is versatile and optimizes interior and exterior space.

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.

STUART SELLS TURQUOISE YACHTS 75m PROJECT Project NB69 Scheduled for delivery November 2021
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
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.

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. A tender garage for a 7.6m tender and all her water toys keeps her decks clear for owner and guest relaxation.

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

NEW CENTRAL LISTING: M/Y SKATThe iconic helicopter capable motor yacht by Lurssen
SKAT was and remains one of the most remarkable yachts afloat. And not only for her radical design by Espen Øino: her engineering, construction and systems are as forward thinking and detailed as her styling. Her maintenance program is second to none, managed by her captain who has been onboard since delivery.
Stark and imposing with beautifully clean lines, when she was launched SKAT broke with yacht design conventions. Not being a slave to trends or fashion, 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. Optimization of the bulbous bow design produced a 15% fuel savings. Similar optimization of the rudders and stabilizers produced an additional 9% saving.
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. Please note that SKAT is not available for sale to US residents while in US waters.
