SEAWAVE sold by YPI

Sailing yacht Seawave sold by YPI

YPI sells Southern Wind SEAWAVE

We are pleased to announce the sale of Southern Wind 102RS SEAWAVE. The deal was managed entirely by YPI’s in-house team, representing both buyer and seller. The sale was concluded within eight weeks of YPI's instruction as central agent.

Significantly optimised since delivery, SEAWAVE is one of the highest specified performance cruising yachts on the water. Fully equipped for racing and cruising with an impressive North Sails inventory, the yacht features a design by Nauta Design and naval architecture by Farr Yacht Design. SEAWAVE accommodates 8 guests in 4 cabins, and 5 crew in 3 cabins.

The deal is the first closed since YPI was acquired by Mercantile & Maritime Investments (MMI), the investment division of the Mercantile & Maritime Group. It continues the strong performance of YPI’s sales team in 2019, including deals closed on S/Y METEOR (52m Royal Huisman Schooner), S/Y MOONBIRD (37m Fitzroy Sloop), S/Y NEPTUNE (26m Fitzroy Sloop) and the 52m New Build Sloop designed by Dykstra Naval Architects.

William Bishop, YPI Sales & New Construction Broker, who acted as the exclusive central agent, commented: “It is a testament to both the quality of the vessel and our commitment to delivering a seamless customer experience that at a time when the luxury sailing yacht market remains challenging, we have been able to conclude this sale so quickly. We are delighted by our recent sales performance and look forward to continuing this momentum through the rest of the year and into 2020.”
