– PLEASE READ THE UPDATE AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS ARTICLE ON THE AICON YACHT AUCTION –

131ft (40m) ALUMINUM SUPERYACHT UNDER CONSTRUCTION

This 40m Alloy was left before completion and we are offering for sale with a plan to finish and a preliminary budget done. The yacht is considered to be about 45-48% finished. Considering the value of the acquisition and the preliminary budget we have calculated to complete the project at the expected superyacht quality standard it is not an understatement to say a prospective client could get this finished for much less than a new built-in of this size and quality would actually cost.

Another great off-market opportunity to acquire a state of the art full aluminium vessel with an incredible spec sheet and really modern design. The vessel is a great example of the well-known Dutch yacht building quality we all know and love. Only two of these were ever made for very discerning super yacht owners. This vessel was designed by Vripack. We very much feel the designer name speaks for itself.

Full survey available (End of November 2017)  valued the yacht at over €1M and the auction will start at €200k on February the 7th thru the 21st. 

Finance can be arranged through our company of choice Lombard Marine Finance for UK customers.

The Infinity 501 is currently in Honk Kong however delivery to the client desired destination can and will be arranged by our team if needed.

The Infinity 501 is built by Holterman Shipyard in The Netherlands and designed by Vripack. There are absolute no compromises made regarding the areas of safety, reliability and comfort. This manifests itself in her sailing behaviour at high speed, but also in her perfect manoeuvring capacities. Equipped with 2 Glass bridge Raymarine panels, AIS, Generator, Radar, Autopilot, tender garage and even an Williams 285 Tender. Let yourself be convinced by a viewing on the yacht. 2017 full survey report available.
