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

Extremely competitively priced and in excellent condition following a huge upgrade in 2018, SCOUT II is now the most interesting deal on the exploration yacht market under 500GT. SCOUT II has transatlantic range, huge outside deck space on all decks, large interior areas thanks to the 9.2m (almost 30 feet) beam, accommodates 9 guests in four staterooms (including two masters) and a proven track record of global cruising.

The upgrade included a 5m extension aft and a 1m extension forward and the installation of a new mast. The bow has been reshaped, all key machinery and systems replaced or remanufactured, including zero speed stabilizers, new generators and air conditioning. All work has been approved by Lloyds.
SCOUT II’s exterior is a masterpiece of rugged strength and power. The interior, on the other hand, 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.

Currently lying in Fort Lauderdale, she can be seen by appointment or click here for details Contact Stuart for more information at +1 954 328 6553 and please  note that Scout II is not offered for sale to US residents while in US waters.

$3.2 M PRICE REDUCTION ON S/Y GEORGIA Available for inspection at Rybovich

Now asking $ 9,750,000 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 eye-catching 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 srl and Butch Design and exterior styling and interior design by Glade Johnson Design, Georgia was conceived as the ultimate family world cruiser. Designed for ease of sailing with a minimal crew, safety and cohesive design was paramount. 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, and there is ample sailing gear storage in belowdeck 50 gallon storage drums. Her centreboard draft allows access to shoal cruising areas. Proven beyond doubt, since 2009 she has covered almost 115,000nm, circumnavigated the globe and won the 2018 St Barth’s Bucket!
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.
When she was launched, Georgia won the Showboats award as the most innovative sailing yacht as well as the best sailing yacht over 38 meters.

Octopus video online I A whole new perspectiveThe most complex and forward-thinking yacht ever built

The 126m Octopus is a feat of imagination and engineering. Still as ground-breaking today as when she was delivered in 2003, there is simply no other comparable yacht in the global fleet. She was built for long-range exploration and research and is uniquely fit for purpose. 

Being equipped with two heli-pads and an aft hangar which houses two large helicopters and the refuelling facilities, she functions as a proper heliport during navigation.

The scope of sea operations is equally articulated. Octopus carries an array of tenders including a Hinckley chase boat, a limousine capable of 30kns, two 9m inflatables plus a large number of smaller craft. The Hinckley is stored in the integrated dock together with a 10-person submersible. Unmanned underwater operations are carried out by the ROV which can operate at depths of 3000m, stream video to the ROV control room on board and collect marine samples with a robotic arm. All online, click on the icon below. 

Her exterior styling and naval architecture is by Espen Oino while the interiors are designed by the Seattle-based Jonathan Quinn Barnett who looked to Mid-century luxury ocean liners and Art Deco design for inspiration.

Octopus will be spending the winter in the Mediterranean. For an appointment, contact Stuart Larsen at or +1 954 328 6553. Please note that Octopus is not offered for sale to US residents while in US waters.

NEW CENTRAL LISTING - M/Y DRAGONBuilt like a little ship, the 80m Dragon merges grace and open vistas with Italian flair

Stuart is pleased to announce the Central Agency listing of Dragon, the new 80m superyacht built by Palumbo at its Ancona facility under the Columbus Yachts brand and delivered in May 2019. 

The brief for the naval architect Hydro Tec Studio specified “a classic all-white boat with a modern design and lots of windows.” Thanks to their 50 year plus experience in commercial shipbuilding, Palumbo was able to reduce the build time and, after constructing the hull in Naples, barged it to their newly acquired superyacht yard in Ancona where it was completed in 20 months. Time-saving methods included modular crew quarters, which were prefabricated and fitted before the hull left Naples.

At 79.5m and 2,210GT, owner and guest accommodations are split over 5 decks, all of which are served by an elevator, with the exception of the sun-deck. The sundeck is undoubtably one of Dragon’s highlights. It features a 7-metre, mosaic-lined pool and shaded Jacuzzi fitted into the funnel with a water blade cascade. A helicopter landing platform for an Agusta 109 or similar is forward on the main deck.
Outside living plays an important role in the design. In addition to outside seating and dining areas forward and aft, the 200 m2 beach club, enhanced by a backlit brilliant blue agate wall, includes a bar, a sauna a Turkish bath, and several relaxation and sunbathing areas.

The sophisticated interior designed with a Provencal twist by Francesco Guida is welcoming and easy on the eye. Dragon has accommodation for 14 guests in 7 cabins and the décor features brushed oak joinery combined with soft bronze or gold accents. The extensive master suite on the Upper Deck forward, has 180° views and includes a private sauna. A full-beam VIP suite is on the main deck, with four other guest suites and there is an extra guest or staff cabin on the lower deck. 
The main salon and dining room feature six panoramic glass windows. The largest of these 40mm-thick panes cover an area of 10 sqm and are supported by the superstructure without additional columns or pillars.

Dragon is powered by twin MTU main engines and has a top speed of 17 knots and a range of 6,200 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots. The state-of-the-art wheelhouse was designed in collaboration with TEAM Italia, the international leader in integrated navigation systems.
A 9.5m custom limo tender built by Palumbo and a 7m tender are housed in a garage amidships on the starboard side while the crew tender and water toys are stored in side-opening compartments under the forward main deck.

Dragon will be on display during the Monaco Yacht Show from the 25 to 28 September on Quai Etats Unis, slip E14.

Imposing at 9,932 GT, her twin domed mast making her instantly recognizable, Octopus can house 26 guests in 13 staterooms. The interior is designed by the Seattle based Jonathan Quinn Barnett and amenities include a large cinema and a recording studio with a specially-designed floor to damp out the low-frequency noise and vibration, a private observation lounge above the owner’s deck, a beach club, pool, gym, and spa with hammam and sauna.
In superb condition having concluded an 8-month refit at Blohm+Voss including her 15-year class surveys, Octopus remains the benchmark for adventure and exploration yachting.
