C&N sells 105m Lady Moura
Camper & Nicholsons has sold the iconic 105m Lady Moura built by Blohm+Voss in an in-house deal.
Camper & Nicholsons has announced the in-house sale of the 105m Lady Moura, the 1990 Blohm+Voss delivery with an asking price of US$125 million. Arne Ploch and Andrew LeBuhn represented the seller and fellow. Sales Broker Fernando Nicholson represented the buyer
Nicholson said: “Three very senior and experienced yacht brokers have been able to achieve one of the great successes in yachting in 2021 thanks to the dedication and organisation of all the departments of C&N, starting from the CEO down. This remarkable sale is thanks to truly solid and experienced teamwork.”
Listed exclusively on the market with Camper & Nicholsons for 554 days, Lady Moura represents the fastest-known brokerage sale of a 100m-plus vessel in the last 10 years, as well as the largest yacht sale recorded by a brokerage house since 2019.
Paolo Casani, CEO of Camper & Nicholsons, added: “I am extremely pleased we achieved such a result and the timeframe in which we achieved it makes it even more exceptional. I would like to thank all the people involved, across our Marketing, CRM, Legal, Brokerage and Management departments. This was a truly joint effort that makes me so proud to work for this company.”
Based in Monaco, Lady Moura was presented to the market for the first time since her delivery over three decades ago. Until her listing, brokers or charter guests had never been welcomed on board and many details about her Luigi Sturchio-styled interiors remained a closely guarded secret.
Joining the world’s top 10 biggest yachts upon her delivery, she has been called the ‘original superyacht’, with a beach club, hydraulic fold-out balcony and tender garage among features. Her 18.5m beam, enormous volume and seven-deck arrangement are among standout features.
Camper & Nicholsons has been appointed as the CA for the sale of Victorious, the 97ft Horizon based in Hong Kong.
