I believe the sale is another sign that the market as a whole is doing very well. The interest from potential buyers is on the rise, particularly for large mega yachts, evident by the increased number of inquiries. Meanwhile, we are delighted that the buyer of Illusion is so experienced and passionate about yachting, allowing him to appreciate Illusion’s unique qualities even before her launch”
