75m Anastasia sold as fleet turns over
Anastasia, the 75-meter Oceanco, was sold earlier this summer at an asking price of €75 million. Built for her serial owner in 2008 in the Netherlands, the yacht had first appeared on the market in 2012, asking €125 million. She will now be named Wheels according to Yacht Harbour.
Launched as Oceanco's hull Y703 in 2008, Anastasia was delivered amongst an uptick in the superyacht market. According to Forbes, she also became the first of a series of 3 yachts that her Russian billionaire owner, Vladimir Potanin would build at Oceanco.
Initially listed on the market in 2012, when her owner took delivery of the 88.5m Oceanco, Nirvana, Anastasia was first asking €125 million. The newly delivered Nirvana was also listed for sale around the same time asking €230 million. After nearly two years, asking prices were first reduced and the yachts were eventually taken off the market as shows the Timeline index.
Made available for charter since then from €600,000 per week, Anastasia came back on the market last summer asking €75 million. Around the same time, the 88m Barbara, an improved version of Nirvana, was delivered to her owner according to Forbes. Now, Anastasia has been sold, switching names to Wheels.
Her asking price makes the deal the second largest to happen in the brokerage market so far in 2018, behind Grace E's €78.5 million sale in April of this year and ahead of the sale of the 68m Lady S.
