40m Princess Anka Sold with Tom George Representing Buyer
The 40 meter Princess motor yacht Anka was sold with Tom George Yacht Group representing the buyer and Princess Cyprus representing the seller. Anka’s asking price was £15,995,000. The transaction was noted by Boat International’s Broker Market Round Up as the largest yacht sold during the third week of November 2017.
Anka was delivered in 2015 as the fifth hull of the “M-40” series. With its custom interior, Anka accommodates up to 12 guests with two full-beam master suites, a VIP suite and two twins. Each cabin comes complete with entertainment centers.
The open salon is an inviting atmosphere with welcoming seating surrounding a 55” Samsung television and Harmon Kadron stereo system. The formal dining room has seating for up to 10 guests. Hydraulic balconies on both the starboard and port side enable guests to enjoy a morning coffee or evening cocktail in the open air.
Anka’s sundeck was built for entertaining and comes complete with several chaise lounges, two settees, large sunpads, a full bar, and a Jacuzzi tub. A built-in electric bimini top allows guests to escape the sun or possible rain shower.
Anka is powered by twin 3,460hp MTU diesel engines enabling a cruising speed of 15 knots and topping out at 23 knots. Additionally, Anka comes fitted with Trac digital fin zero speed stabilizers.
While not formally on the market, Tom George working together with Princess was able to seek out a willing seller of the 40 meter Princess motor yacht on behalf of an experienced client with a particular yacht in mind. With only a handful of the award winning “M-40” series yachts made and even fewer available on the market, Tom George went above and beyond to meet the needs of his client.
Within a short turnaround, Tom George flew to Greece to manage the sea trial and negotiate on behalf of his client. Upon closing, Anka received fresh paint in Greece and was shipped to New Zealand. The quickly executed transaction in a scenario with limited product availability is indicative of how Tom George has continually overcome challenges on behalf of his clients through over 30 years of industry experience.
Through decades as a yacht broker, Tom George has been recognized by clients, experienced yacht owners and industry peers for going above and beyond to meet and exceed the needs of Tom George Yacht Group clients. The purchase of Anka is yet another example of overcoming unique challenges while Tom George delivers on behalf of his client.
