The sale is among the largest brokerage deals of all time
The 115.1-metre Lürssen-built superyacht Ahpo has been sold in an in-house deal by Moran Yacht & Ship, a mere three months after being listed.
In a statement, Moran Yacht & Ship says: “We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank the seller for his trust in our team over the past 20 years as well as congratulate her new owner on the purchase of this incredible vessel.
“Asking €330m at the time of her sale, and sold in three months, Ahpo is no doubt one of the largest brokerage deals ever completed.”

The vessel will now be renamed Lady Jorgia and will be made available for charter this summer in the Mediterranean.
It’s not known why former owner, Canadian-Jamaican billionaire Michael Lee-Chin, decided to sell up less than two years after the yacht was delivered. Lee-Chin reportedly commissioned Ahpo in 2017, as a replacement for his previous Lürssen yacht Quatroelle. The vessel debuted at the 2022 Monaco Yacht Show, gaining the much-prized accolade of being the biggest yacht on display.
Ahpo was designed and styled by Nuvolari Lenard Design and was sold by Moran Yacht & Shop to a repeat Lürssen client, who previously owned an 86-metre also designed by Nuvolari Lenard.
Features include a fully commercial helipad, a penthouse-inspired two-storey owner’s suite, an eight-metre swimming pool, several Jacuzzis, a 12-seat cinema with LED star-studded ceilings, and a large winter garden on the aft deck that can be completely open or closed.
The garage is filled with just about every water toy you can think of, along with five supporting tenders, including two 12-metre one-off tenders from I.C. Yachts.
