“At its absolute simplest, successful sales is about bringing the right people together,” explains Russell Crump, YPI Director of Sales and the man behind the successful closing of both RED SQUARE (now AXIOMA) and the 51m Damen Shipyards Group: UMBRA. “There is such a thing as ‘buyer fatigue’ and it happens when brokers don’t take the time to better understand what their client is actually looking for and how he intends to use it. We don’t believe in wasting our time or the time of our clients whether they are looking to buy or sell. A little bit of understanding at the beginning makes the whole process so much more rewarding and ultimately fruitful for all.”

The 27m Maiora, IFA CANNES was the sale that opened up this year’s Monaco Yacht Show with YPI broker, Gregory Gheraia, acting for both the buyer and seller.  
“IFA CANNES is a stunning yacht,” says Gregory. “She was delivered in 2007 and benefitted from some considerable investment. This is the perfect example of what happens when you bring two people together who share the same interests and aspirations in their yachting.”

Built in 2006 by renowned Italian shipyard International Shipyards Ancona (ISA), with exterior designs byWalter Franchini and interiors by Luca Dini, the luxury yacht AMOIXA (formerly Axioma) is one of the finest light displacement yachts of her kind, accommodating up to 12 guests in six spacious and luxurious cabins and offering a unique and vast air-conditioned watersports facility at sea level.
“When it comes to watersports, the best most yachts this size offer is a garage or lazarette where crew can grab equipment and toys for owners and guests,” explains Russell Crump, Sales Director at YPI and the yacht’s broker for sale. “AMOIXA offers a whole room where everyone can pick and choose their diving gear or watertoys and then launch them directly into the sea from platforms extending out from both sides of the hull. It’s genius!”
AMOIXA also offers a spacious formal dining area seating up to 12 guests on the main deck alongside the Master Suite, Master Salon, main salon and an aft deck lounge area with zero-speed stabilisers for maximum comfort.
“She has a spectacular VIP Stateroom on the sky deck as well as a salon and aft lounge area and a very impressive sundeck for al fresco dining around a large Jacuzzi. Great for entertaining.”
Powered by twin 1752 kW MTU engines AMOIXA can reach speeds of up to 17 knots whilst cruising comfortably at 13-14 knots.
“For those looking for a reliable, performant, well-maintained yacht that is both luxurious and fun, offering features well beyond her size, AMOIXA is a great opportunity. All her surveys are up to date and if required, owner financing is also available.”

AMOIXA is now available for viewing in Istanbul, Turkey and is for sale through YPI at an Asking Price of: EUR 12,500,000.

Launched in 2003, the yacht SYNERGY is the ideal luxury holiday cruiser. Accommodating up to 11 guests in five well-appointed cabins, the yacht underwent a complete interior refit in 2010 which included new entertainment and communication systems and a re-designed look to a modern ‘casual-chic’ Parisian style.

“The yacht has been superbly maintained,” explains her YPI broker, Gregory Gheraia. “And when you step on board and see the facilities and the space on offer, you realise just how well designed this 31m yacht actually is.”

The Master cabin, situated on the main deck, boasts an ensuite shower room whilst the lower deck offers a full width VIP double aft, two twins and a double cabin forward, all with ensuite shower facilities.
“This is a yacht ideal for entertaining,” says Gregory. “She offers a wealth of indoor and outdoor dining space including a bar and ample sun-lounge area – part of the reason why I think she has proved to be such a popular charter yacht ever since her launch.”
Sporting 2 x MTU 16V 2000 M90 engines, SYNERGY cruises comfortably at 20 knots and can reach a top speed of up to 24 knots.
“For someone looking for a fun and fast yacht, ideal for entertaining, offering a superbly luxurious and comfortable interior, correctly priced and with the added bonus of having a very successful charter record…then SYNERGY is one yacht that should be seen. And soon!”
SYNERGY is now available for viewing in Cannes, South of France and is for sale through YPI at an Asking Price of: EUR 2,200,000.
