“I’m delighted to announce the off-market sale of Artemis,” said Chris Cecil-Wright, founding partner of Cecil Wright & Partners. “This demonstrated our team’s deeper knowledge of the industry and our ability to find solutions when the on-market has been exhausted.
“In particular I would like to thank Henry Smith, who led the way for both Buyer and Sell side on this deal. I would also like to pass on my sincere thanks to the Captain and crew for their efforts throughout this process.”
The New Zealand-built yacht was delivered by Fitzroy in 2007 as Salperton, and features an exterior design by Dubois Naval Architects with luxurious interiors by Adam Lay Studio. This award-winning superyacht has long been a strong contender on the racing scene, and continuous upgrades have ensured that she has remained at the pinnacle of luxury yachting standards.
Now renamed Mes Amis, she will complete the year in the Caribbean before moving over to the Mediterranean for the Summer 2021 season, where she will be available for charter through Cecil Wright & Partners.
“It’s very encouraging to see the continuing uptrend in the brokerage market over the last few months with this being our 5th deal since the end of lockdown,” continued Chris Cecil-Wright, whose company announced the sale of 62m Feadship New Hampshire earlier this month.
“It underlines our belief that quality yachts will sell both on and off the market. We are looking forward to finishing this year on a high.”
