Following the exceptional level of activity in the brokerage market in 2013 with a record 355 yachts over 24 metres being sold worldwide, the yachting industry waited with bated breath to see how much activity the first few months of 2014 would bring.
YPI Brokerage was therefore pleased to announce the sale of the first yacht of the year over 30 metres, the superb 39 metre Sanlorenzo ONYX.
Built in 2009 to ABS class and fully MCA compliant, ONYX is a superb example of the innovative Alloy 40 range with exterior and interior design by the renowned Francesco Paszkowski Design.
“The more you get to know ONYX the more she offers up in terms of technology, great design and performance,” explains YPI broker Gregory Gheraia who acted for the buyer. “She is an exciting yacht and she is going to great new owner.”

Built by Marinteknik Verkstad in Sweden in 1992, the 42 metre tri-deck AMZ is the classic Gentleman’s yacht with a well-lit and spacious interior and lots of exterior entertaining areas. A DNV classed yacht with aluminium hull and superstructure she benefits from a number of upgrade technical and interior refits resulting in a yacht with all the class of a vintage motor yacht but all the offerings of the most up-to-date yachts on the market today.

“AMZ is an exceptionally well built and very reliable yacht with all the space and facilities you could need for some great entertaining,” says her YPI Broker Lucas de Vilmorin. “She already has a superb reputation in the charter industry offering guests plenty of sunbathing and shaded dining areas, Jacuzzi, bar and excellent entertainment system.”
AMZ accommodates up to 11 guests in six cabins (3 double, 2 Twin and 1 single) including the Owner’s Suite on the main deck forward with en-suite marble bathroom, Jacuzzi bath, separate rain shower and superb views through panoramic picture windows.
“Many of the reasons why she is such a popular charter yacht are also important when it comes to purchasing her,” explains Lucas. “Underway stabilisers make her particularly comfortable and she has been superbly maintained by a very experienced crew.”
AMZ is now keenly for sale through YPI at the Asking Price of EUR 3,400,000 and can be viewed on appointment in Athens, Greece.

The Superyacht Design Awards and the World Superyacht Awards are two of the industry’s most lauded annual events. They celebrate and acknowledge the highest levels of achievement across the whole of the yachting spectrum in particular design, innovation, build, technology and, of course, style.
Over the years YPI has been lucky enough to have bought, sold, managed and chartered some of the most popular finalists and winners in both competitions including such exceptional yachts as RAINBOW, MARY-JEAN II, METEOR, LIONHEART and M and this year is no exception with both LUNAR (the first of the new C115 range from the Polish Conrad shipyard) and the highly renowned AXIOMA (formerly Red Square) the first superyacht from Turkish builder Dunya Yachts.

AXIOMA (ex: Red Square)

The 72m AXIOMA is the first yacht built by Turkish builders Dunya Yachts and the largest motor yacht ever built in Turkey. Sold at last year’s Monaco Yacht Show and now chartering through YPI, her lines were drawn by Diana Scott of Sterling Scott in Monaco with her interior created by the late, legendary designer, Alberto Pinto
“When you have good clients who love their yachting, you tend to work with nothing short of the very best in yachts,” says YPI Director of Sales, Russell Crump. “And we are blessed with some fabulous clients who really love their yachting. AXIOMA was a winner even before she left the yard. Her exterior and interior designing is innovative, smart and simply stunning. Sedat Ergun, the MD at Dunya Yachts, oversaw an amazing project with her and we are very pleased and proud to see her reach the Finals this year.”
