Is It “So Long” to 85m Motor Yacht Solandge?

Posted on

Word recently came in that one of the largest private luxury yacht charter vessels in the market was just sold.

The 85 meter (279 foot) spectacular Lurssen motor yacht SOLANDGE has been sold.  The deal closed on March 22, and the new owner has already taken delivery.  The buyer was represented by Moran Yacht and Ship, and terms of the sale have not been released.  She was listed for sale by Moran at an asking price of €155,000,000 (yes, boys and girls, that IS 6 zeros!)

The massive yacht was scheduled to participate in the Palm Beach International Boat Show, March 23 -26, 2017.   Needless to say, the new owner saw no need to put the yacht on display, instead choosing to enjoy his new watertoy.

Launched in 2013, Solandge Lurssen motor yacht features the sleek exterior styling of naval architect Espen Øino, with a rich, rather eclectic interior design by Aileen Rodriguez.

“She is an amazing luxury yacht charter vessel,” says Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters.  “Imagine a floating resort with a gym, spa, saunas, and cinema.  There’s even a DJ booth on the party deck, and a 5.5 meter swimming pool on the aft.  Best of all, this floating spa is private – only you and your family and friends are onboard!”

 

Yachtsmen and -women the world over want to know — will we be waving goodbye to Lurssen yacht Solandge…or will she remain in the charter fleet???  Is it Adios –  or just Hasta luego?  Is it Tchau – or just Ate mais, beijo?   Is it Ciao — or Addio?

Often, a new owner will remove the yacht from the private yacht charter marketplace, so he and his family and friends can enjoy her for extended cruising.

“For now, she remains listed for hire, but that could change,” says Sheeder.   “Of course, for the benefit of our clients, we certainly hope she remains in the marketplace.  Only a handful of the world’s largest yachts are available for hire, and motoryacht Solandge stands at or near the top of that elite list.”

Solandge accommodates 12 guests in a 7 elegant stateroom configuration.  Her weekly rate is published at €1,000,000 plus running expenses.   Her current schedule has her available for hire in the Caribbean through Spring, then in the Mediterranean for the summer.

SELLING NEWS IN THE YACHTING INDUSTRY

Megayacht charter customers take heart – the luxury yacht industry is alive and well.  Superyacht sales soar in September 2009.  Without active purchases and sales of yachts, there is no viable luxury sailing charter or megayacht rental industry.  All sales bode well for the future.

 

YACHT SALES BREAK RECORDS

September saw a number of 2009 brokerage sales records broken.  In conclusion, 24 superyachts sell at asking prices totaling nearly 374 million EUROS. This is well above the combined total of July and August of 340 million EUROS.  January to the end of April add to the number of superyachts with new owners – all to the tune of 372 million EUROS.

 

ACTUAL YACHT SALES

A few sample yachts finding new owners include:

  • 59.4m Lurssen OASIS
  • 70.5m Amels BOADICEA
  • 56m Benetti ALLEGRO,
  • 64.5m Amels SHANTI

YACHT MANAGER COMMENT

Charlie Birkett, a yachting employee, comments:

Understandably, expectations for what was once the start of the busiest season for yacht sales were conservative across the industry this year, and major brokerage houses reacted cautiously even to the apparent signs of recovery in August. However going into September we saw recovery consolidated somewhat with sales of the 60m+ yachts of prestigious yards and, speaking to other leading brokers at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show, the mood was certainly more optimistic.

 

Basically, what his quote expresses is that the season starts slowly due to the economy, and as sales pick up, optimism grows.
