March 2023 – Berthon Yacht Sales in Italy and the WCC ARC Bluewater Open Day
March 17th, 2023
The daffodils are coming into bloom at Berthon UK and there is a lot to look forward to now that Spring is just around the corner.
^ Spring has already sprung for Berthon Scandinavia, pictured above.
We are busy finalising our 2023 Yacht Market Report, which is soon to be published. It provides our view of the yacht market internationally as well as carrying articles from expert guest contributors about issues which are key – such as VAT, finance and shipping. We are also super busy preparing for boat shows, both in the UK and in Palma de Mallorca, where we hope to catch up with clients both old and new.
Let us tell you about Berthon yacht sales in Italy – and introduce you to our lovely local brokers Filippo and Raffaele. Working together and forming part of Berthon’s extended family, they have the market experience and expertise to guide you through the Italian yacht transaction process. They also have some smashing brokerage yachts available in the centre of Mediterranean and Adriatic yachting.
Registration is now open for the WCC ARC Bluewater Open Day, which is to be held at Berthon’s Lymington, UK HQ on Saturday 10th June. If you are thinking about taking part in an ARC rally, this is a really useful event. There will be a selection of bluewater yachts here for sale that you can explore, seminars and discussion panels about various aspects of bluewater cruising and advice on how to prepare for ocean crossings. It is also a chance to socialise with sailors that have been there and done it. After a couple of virtual years hosting our ‘Cockpit Conversations’ online, we are delighted to be back for a real time event. You can register here.
Behold the superb Axopar 37 XC Cross Cabin, SISU – now on film! An all-weather, sea-sure, adaptable 4 berth/twin cabin sports-boat. Utterly immaculate, she comes with a super-high spec and punchy twin Mercury Verado 300hp V8 outboard engines, giving her a top speed of 48 knots, and we do not expect her to hang about for long!
We think Discovery 55/041 truly is a COOL CAT. From 2012, we know her well and Discovery fans may remember her as TIMELESS. She benefitted from a substantial refit in 2019 including new sails, Brunton prop, copper coat and much more. These owners bought her in 2020 and have kept up the good work. COOL CAT gleams from every angle and has quite simply, never looked better.
The modern classic cruiser – Nautor Swan 411, KISWALA is a beautiful sailing yacht which has been very well maintained, lovingly cared for and much updated through life. KISWALA combines elegance with performance and seaworthiness. She is in excellent condition and ready for the new season.
With all the cruising amenities – Island Packet 440 JESSICA MEI is now on video. This Island Packet 440 is an ideal cruising yacht capable of crossing oceans but with a draft of only 5’, she will get you to those sought-after anchorages others cannot reach. JESSICA MEI has benefitted from extensive maintenance and recent upgrades. She is fully equipped with all the cruising apparatus that you could possibly want.
News from Berthon Spain
The thing about Programmable Logic Controller systems… Well, where do we start? Luckily, Berthon Spain’s Marine Electrician Leo Laterza is an electronic wizard who understands the importance of this technology, how to install it and how to fix it. The nerve centre of a modern yacht, captain and crew rely on a PLC to access a wide range of essential information relating to a yacht’s systems. If you need assistance with your yacht’s systems and electronics, Berthon Spain have got it covered.
We are looking forward to the boat show season in 2023. Please save the date, and come and see the Berthon Team.
