Matt Emerson of Burgess represented the seller in negotiations and Andrew Bond of Fraser represented the buyer.

When she hit the market in 2019, the Australian studio commented: “Her long, wide hull line accentuates the vessel’s large dimensions, while her sleek and rounded superstructure represents a truly unique style, timeless yet elegant.” Photo: BurgessSam Sorgiovanni proposed a four-meter shorter design, but it was lengthened so that “the owner can have a large dining table forward and wide seating on the main deck aft, and a large beach club aft of the tender garage,” explained Sorgiovanni.

As a result, she is full of uncompromising charm. JW HARRIS, the interior studio, has given a modern touch to the Art Deco era, making extensive use of bold and irregular patterns, infusing all the modern trappings expected from a yacht of this caliber and class.
