Sales, Shows & Outlook
Dear customers, dear friends, dear yachties,
A successful, exciting and eventful season is drawing to a close.
The first year in which all Boat Shows were again able to take place without any major restrictions, was characterised by lively exchanges, many reunions and new acquaintances.
The current global developments present us all with new challenges, which we would like to meet with determination and confidence.
At the same time, we are grateful for a very successful year so far, which has once again shown that the basis of trust with our clients and partners is the indispensable foundation for long-term success in our industry.
Below we would like to present some of our highlights of 2022. In addition to a short recap of the successful Boat Shows of the year, we would like to present a selection of the deals we have closed this year.
Good to be back – THe first Boat Shows 2022
The 2022 show season kicked off with the Miami International Boat Show, the largest yacht show in the world.
Even though we are mainly active in Europe, it is also worth to consider the US market. Due to the weak euro, we expect growing interest from US customers in the European yachting sector. The establishment of a direct flight connection from New York to Palma, which was active for the first time this summer, also suggests more visitors from the USA to the Balearic Islands.
The show in sunny Florida is always a good way to start the new yachting year and to exchange ideas and meet clients with numerous international brokers.
The Palma International Boat Show, held in April in the port of Mallorca’s capital, marks the start of the European yachting season every year. As one of our “home ports”, the show provides an annual opportunity for us to meet with long-standing customers and colleagues, visit boats and expand our network. On site, we offered our customers, among other things, tours on the Custom Line Navetta 33, which is one of our personal favourites from the Custom Line range. A model built in 2020 is currently for sale and can be visited if interested. More Info here.
The Hamburg Ancora Yacht Festival is our event in the north. The Bay of Lübeck offers a refreshing contrast to the usual yachting areas of the Mediterranean and the opportunity for many German yacht enthusiasts and water sports aficionados to experience the presentation of numerous models in the water. Our customers were able to inform themselves about our brands, such as Ferretti Yachts, Custom Line and Pershing, while enjoying a glass of wine at the Sieckmann Yachts stand. This experience was complimented by our valued partner, the traditional jeweller Rüschenbeck, who presented exclusive pieces of jewellery and luxury watches in our shared lounge.
The Salone Nautico in Venice is a very special event for visitors and ourselves every year. As a maritime hub, the former naval port of the lagoon city offers the ideal backdrop for the presentation of the latest developments in the Italian yacht industry and combines tradition and modernity in an impressive way. In addition to the presentation of numerous models of the Ferretti Group such as Ferretti Yachts, Custom Line, Pershing, Riva and Wally, visitors could again enjoy the art exhibition Biennale Arte 2022, which could finally take place again after a three-year break.
Delivery Ferretti Yachts 850
We are also pleased to announce a sale from the portfolio of our partner, the Ferretti Group.
The Ferretti Yachts 850 uniquely combines luxury, performance and style. The large windows flood the interior with natural light, the four cabins and five bathrooms offer the owner and his guests plenty of space and maximum comfort.
The yacht was delivered at the end of March in Cattolica, Italy. She was then transported to Mallorca via Malta together with the owner, his captain and us.
We are very happy about the smooth course of the sale and delivery process. We would like to thank the owner for the trust he has placed in us and wish him and his family much pleasure with his new ship.
Sale of JONGERT 39M ‘LUCIA M’
At 39 metres, the semi-displacement yacht from the Dutch shipyard Jongert combines clean, elegant lines, seaworthiness and maximum comfort for its owner and guests.
The 5 cabins of the aluminium yacht accommodate up to 10 guests. The owner’s cabin uses the full width of the ship and offers plenty of natural light via a large skylight, which can be darkened electrically if desired. At the front of the ship is the gym and a steam bath.
The outdoor area offers numerous possibilities for relaxation or joint activities. The spacious, semi–covered flybridge offers a lounge, bar as well as a sun deck.
Powered by twin MTU 16V 4000 M90 diesel engines, the Jongert LUCIA M reaches a maximum speed of an impressive 28 knots. At 12 knots, the ocean-going yacht has a range of 2,400 miles.
The sale was handled by the former owner’s side in cooperation with Cornelius Kistler of Breeze Yachting. We are delighted with this successful transaction and wish the new owner, a long-standing and experienced customer of Sieckmann Yachts, safe journeys and much pleasure with this special vessel.
Sale of Sunseeker 105 Yacht
In less than 90 days of the Smooth Operator being for sale, we successfully brokered the yacht to her new owner.
This 105 yacht was custom built in 2003 for an experienced Sunseeker client, with many additional features added over time. The master cabin is located in the standard wheelhouse position and thus offers an impressive 180° panorama. A total of four cabins, each equipped with TV, entertainment centre and en-suite bathrooms, offer comfort and relaxation for up to 8 guests.
The spacious fly deck with generous bar opens up impressive views and plenty of room for casual entertainment.
Two MTU 16V 2000 M91 engines give the Smooth Operator an impressive range of 1,500 nautical miles at 12 knots.
We are delighted with the successful brokerage of this special yacht, which has attracted many looks in the ports of the Mediterranean for years. The yacht was transferred by us to Palma de Mallorca, where the ship will receive a comprehensive refit and new paintwork. We wish the new owner and his family a wonderful 2023 season and safe cruising at alle times on the Smooth Operator.
La mer – Yacht Shows on the Cote d’ Azure
September is the month when yachties from all over the world are drawn to the French Riviera. The late summer bathes St. Tropez, Cannes and Monaco in bright colours and creates a special atmosphere in the harbours.
Selected customers were able to attend the launch of new models at the Ferretti Group Private Preview at the Yacht Club de Monaco, accompanied by an exclusive dinner by celebrity chef Massimo Bottura and Grammy award-winning funk guitarist Neil Rodgers.
At the Monaco Yacht Show 2022 we were jointly participating for the first time with the German superyacht association Deutsche Yachten. We very much appreciate the cooperation with Deutsche Yachten and look forward to many more joint events in the coming years.
The events on the Côte d’Azur were also a great success this year. With numerous new customer contacts and exchanges with suppliers from all areas of the yachting industry, we were able to expand our network and initiate various brokerages that are currently being handled. For example, a pre-owned Sunseeker 76 yacht, for which we could broker a deal in the course of the Cannes Yachting Festival.
Sale Of Sunseeker 76 Yacht
The 76 Yacht (2019) from Sunseeker offers the owner and their guests everything you would expect from the iconic British brand. The deep-V hull design of the 76 Yacht demonstrates exceptional seaworthiness and the intelligent layout creates a spaciousness that is among the best on the market in its class.
The numerous glass surfaces provide plenty of natural light and the main deck allows impressive views of almost 360°. The outside decks offer an unrivalled level of flexibility and space to suit the owner’s needs.
At the stern is a beach club with a barbecue, fold–out seating and a rain shower – perfect for entertaining on board with family and friends.
The smart layout continues on the foredeck, where large double berths, as well as forward and aft seating, ensure the best use of space for any occasion.
The contract for the Sunseeker 76 Yacht was signed during the last weekend of the Cannes Yachting Festival. We have had a trusting relationship with the new owner for many years. The handover of the vessel took place at the end of October.
