The Blohm+Voss-built superyacht, Enigma, formerly known as Eco and Katana, has been listed for sale with Nick Edmiston of Edmiston & Company. The 75m build is currently based in the Mediterranean and has an asking price of €47.5 million.
Edmiston commented, “You know a yacht is iconic when a world-class shipyard still uses it as their main advertisement some 25 years after they built her. That speaks volumes for the quality and the pride the builders took in this particular commission.
“I think some of the other boats in this segment have not been seriously for sale – and when they’ve become seriously for sale, the prices have been adjusted accordingly. But Enigma is sensibly priced in order for her to sell, she was excellently designed and is in like-new condition.”
Enigma was launched at Blohm+Voss’ Hamburg facility in 1991 to a design conceived by Martin Francis. In addition to the panoramic convex windows set into her superstructure, the design brief put forward by the original owner Emilio Azcárraga, CEO and Chairman of Televisa, was focused largely on performance.
The interior is made up of an unconventional layout, comprising accommodation on board for 15 guests across six cabins. Edmiston concluded, “All the guest accommodation is on the main deck with these great windows. Unlike many yachts where you have to get out of bed, stand on your tiptoes and look out a porthole for the views, on here you can do it all from the comfort of your own bed.”
