IYC REPORTS A STRONG NOVEMBER
As IYC enters into the final chapter of the year, our team proudly announces a significant number of sales in November and the addition of four pedigree yachts to our global charter fleet. With over 30 vessels sold in 2020, IYC is ranked within the top three brokerage houses in the yachting industry. The sales acumen of the IYC team was demonstrated this month with four high-quality yachts sold within one week.
One of the most successful charter yachts in the industry, 47.24m (155ft) Loon, was sold on November 10 with Katya Grzeszczak representing the buyer and Michael Rafferty and Barbara Stork Landeweer representing the seller. Built by Christensen in 1997 and in immaculate condition, Loon is to be renamed Zeal; she will still be available to charter with IYC as she continues the outstanding program developed by her previous owners and the charter management team. On the same day, Frank Grzeszczak Jr. sold the 35.05m (115ft) Siete, a 2002 Benetti with a strong charter reputation and various versatile living spaces. Siete underwent a comprehensive refit in 2018 to ensure she is in top condition for her new owners and future guests.
Within the same week, Mark Elliott and Kevin Bonnie of IYC completed the sale of 39m (128ft) Revelry. Delivered in 2010 by pedigree Dutch builder Hakvoort with naval architecture by Cor D. Rover, she is in immaculate condition. Another outstanding charter vessel, her shallow draft makes her an excellent option for exploring the Bahamas, with easy access to all anchorages. Her highlights include an impressive water toy collection, an on-deck full-beam master suite, and an incredibly spacious sun deck. Revelry was listed at $13,900,000.
On November 16, 47m (154ft) Africa I was sold with Filip Jerolimov. Fresh from a refit in 2019/2020, this Benetti was on the market for €13,900,000 and offers an excellent investment opportunity to her new owners thanks to her thriving reputation as a charter vessel. Her highlights include an approved RYA water sports center and numerous inflatables and toys to keep everyone on board entertained. Currently based in Croatia, she is also available to charter with IYC.
This year to date, the IYC team has sold an impressive 33 vessels including 72m (236ft) Project Metamorphosis, to be delivered in 2024 by the Italian shipyard Admiral. An innovative design, she will be built to ice class, have a transatlantic range of over 5,500 nautical miles, an aft deck pool, spa and a helipad.
With 107 vessels on its books, IYC manages the largest fleet of charter yachts across the globe. As a result of our team’s expertise, the number of high-quality charter options for clients continues to grow, with several new additions in recent weeks. Two of the sales achieved in November are also welcome additions to the IYC charter fleet, Zeal (ex-Loon) and Revelry. These vessels will both be based in the Caribbean for the winter, and are excellent options for large mixed groups. Click here to discover why you should charter a yacht this holiday season.
Big Easy also joins IYC as a charter yacht. Built by Dutch shipyard Hakvoort in 2002, this 44.58m (146ft) yacht has benefited from various refits throughout her lifetime and remains in immaculate condition. Her interior is the work of the renowned Andrew Winch Design studio, and she offers her 12 guests excellent al fresco dining spaces, a whirlpool jacuzzi, and an exceptional selection of water toys. Another new charter vessel based in Greece, IYC proudly adds a stunning new multi-hull catamaran, 19.5m (64′) Galux One to its fleet. Built in 2020, she is in perfect condition and ready to welcome her next guests. Thanks to her innovative design, she boasts spacious exterior space than commonly seen on catamarans, and four crew to cater to every guests’ needs.
