The main event of the superyacht industry, the Monaco Yacht Show is attended every year by hundreds of brokers eager to network, inspect new builds and attempt to gain clients in the process.

Coral Ocean, a 1994-built Lürssen yacht formerly known as Coral Island, has been sold to a new owner. Listed with Moran Yacht & Ship, the 72.54-metre yacht was sold at Monaco Yacht Show with the buyer represented by Ahoy Club. Finalised in just three days, the sale was one of the quickest and largest to occur during the event.

The yacht was bought directly from Lurssen and sold to an Australian Ian Malouf, who is also causing innovative changes in the Superyacht industry. The off-market deal was completed by Ahoy Club, Malouf’s digital marketplace of yachts for charter, inside a mere 72 hours with her new owner leaving the show already onboard Coral Ocean.

Now headed for a refit, Coral Ocean is set to continue its charming history and charter excellence through Ahoy Club in the Mediterranean next summer whilst Mischief will be cruising in Australia on both daily and weekly charters.
