2023 ranking: shipyards for sale of used superyachts

The Italians are in the lead


The 2023 ranking of shipyards for the sale of used superyachts

In the lead are the Italians Sanlorenzo, Benetti and Azimut. Considering instead the shipbuilding groups Azimut-Benetti in the lead and Ferretti Group in second place
BoatPro data on second-hand sales of yachts over 24 meters in 2023, to date show a parallel in relation to builders' yards with the data from the Global Order Book, the annual ranking of Boat International's global order portfolio which reports the analysis of yachts under construction and on order.

Going directly to the BoatPro numbers, 338 yachts from 129 shipyards changed hands on the brokerage market this year and among these, yachts from Italian shipyards account for the lion's share of sales on the brokerage market.
As in the latest edition of the Global Order Book (Gob), at the top of the second-hand market rankings we find Sanlorenzo and Azimut-Benetti. Although for just one unit, Sanlorenzo is in first place with a total of 21 second-hand yachts sold in 2023, followed by Benetti with 20 yachts and Azimut with 19 units sold. However, if we were to consider that Azimut and Benetti form a shipbuilding group, first place would go to them with 39 sales in total.
In the next position, equal, we find England and Holland with the Sunseeker and Feadship shipyards respectively, with 13 sales each. However, the comparison in terms of overall numbers (understood as active sailing yachts) sees Sunseeker with 522 boats versus Feadship with only 221, highlights the current vitality of the brokerage market both for medium-sized fiberglass and steel yachts. Dutch construction.
The largest Feadship sold this year – according to the Gob – was the 75-mer Arrow while the largest Sunseeker to find a new owner in 2023 was the 36.8-metre Sullivan's Island.
Returning to Italy and at the level of shipbuilding groups, we find Ferretti Group in second place in this further second-hand classification. Among the brands of the Italian group led by Alberto Galassi, Riva has sold 11 yachts so far. Combining Riva's results with those of the other brands of the Group, 37 yachts would have changed hands. Five other brands have already obtained the following resale results: Ferretti Yachts = 8, Custom Line = 7, Pershing = 5, Wally Yachts = 3, CRN = 3.
Considering the 12 yachts currently on the used market of the British shipyard Princess as 'sold' in 2023, we consider the latter in fifth place in the ranking.
Then turning our gaze towards Asia: Horizon achieved 9 sales and Ocean Alexander 7. The American shipyards follow in the list with 7 sales by Broward Marine and 6 by Westport.
Other sales with numbers close to the previous ones concern the Italian shipyard Codecasa with 5 superyachts from its fleet sold, Nautor Swan 6 yachts sold and Heesen 5 yachts.
Finally, giga yachts: among these the Feadship shipyard stands out as it achieved the best result in sales of yachts over 100 metres, followed by Lürssen with five sales on the used market. The largest and most expensive yacht to change hands in 2023 is a Lürssen and it is the 115 meter Ahpo. Still regarding the other sales of Lürssen's large yachts, we find the 95.2 meter Kismet (now Whisper) and the 95 meter Madsummer.
