Since the last issue of sea&i,the autumn boat show season saw a flurry of activity and a highnumber of significant sales, particularly in the 40m+ (131'+) market. Below this size range the marketcontinues to be weakened by occasional sales of repossessed yachts in poor condition, whoselow sales prices have distorted buyer's expectations. Nevertheless the huge reduction in the supplyof production yachts, as shipyards cut back the number of vessels in build, will also see prices firmingup over the coming year. Many brokers believe we are heading for significant price rises in newyachts as the rising cost of materials, and the consequent increase in the cost of building a yacht,filters through to retail prices. 12Isea&iIWINTER 2011BROKERAGEOna 66m (216'5) Oceanco 2005Asking price at time of sale ?59,900,000Ona has been renamed Natita and is available for charterHigh Chaparral 49.9m (164') Feadship 2004Asking price at time of sale ?31,000,000Available for charter Blue Eyes 42m (137'9) Baglietto 2004 Asking price at time of sale ?9,900,000Ocean Victory II 47.5m (155'8) ISA 2005RECENT SALES FROM CNI.
