I never had imagined that after all these years of being the owner/captain of this yacht, that I would offer her via an Auction to a potential new owner.
I have had her for sale via Edmiston for 1.200.000, – Euro in her glory days and even with price reductions to 850.000, – Euro and 450.000, – Euro, they have not been able to sell her.
Afterwards my Central Agent, became West Nautical, where the yacht is still visible on there Website and just had a price Reduction from 450.000, – Euro to 200.000,- Euro.
I’m writing these Terms and Conditions, to make it as transparent as can be for you to understand the actual situation.
At the moment the Yacht is in Porto Montenegro and I have not been able to pay the Port Fee for her Berthing. These Fees have accumulated to just over 30.000,- Euros and are my concern and responsibility.
The Port Fees will be taken care of by me, once a winning bid have been taken place, and immediately after full payment have been received. Yacht Registration will be handled simultaneously while contract and Yacht Registration need to be signed and send by post (DHL, UPS or Fedex) if the new owner is not able to come here for this transaction.
The main Reason, why I have to sell the Yacht via this Auction is that Porto Montenegro have been very coulant up until the begining of this year but need to see some movement in Ownership and have the old Port Fees paid by me.
