United Yacht Sales broker Matt Condon has just sold and closed on HIGH BID, a Princess Yachts V72 that was located in Panama City Beach, Florida. UYS would like to congratulate everyone involved in the sale of HIGH BID, including Steve Gilliam of Great Southern Yacht Sales who represented the buying party. The asking price at the time of sale was listed at $1,590,000. Matt has decades of experience in the purchase and sales of high-end luxury boats and specializes in yachts for sale in Florida.
“My father taught me the value of being prepared and hard work," said Matt. At the age of 13 years, I was expected to prepare everything on the boat for the upcoming fishing trip. He played a game where he would ask me a thousand questions to see if I forgot a single item or task. At the time I thought it was just a game, but later realized solving a thousand problems before they occur is how you execute well in business.” Matt has had his CPYB (Certified Professional Yacht Broker) designation since 2009.

HIGH BID was an excellent example of the Princess V72 with many upgrades and options included. This is important in the brokerage market for being able to sell quickly and for the highest price possible. Princess is known for their performance, incredible luxury, and comfortable accommodations below deck. These European-built luxury cruising yachts typically don't last long when kept in good condition, feature the amenities people want, and are priced competitively. This particular V72 featured the largest engines offered as well as special designer appointments.
The lounge on the bow is one of the most important areas of any cruising yacht meant for entertaining. Today's boat owners want both a place to sit and an area for sunbathing. While the captain is cruising you down the ICW, you and your friends can be basking in the sun on the large sunpads with adjustable backs. There is a wide walkway between the couch and the sunpads for easy maneuvering while underway. The sound system will keep everyone entertained.
The cockpit is the highlight of the yacht on any express cruiser. The gorgeous teak decking and stainless steel handrails highlight the luxurious appeal of the cockpit. A large u-shaped couch offers plenty of seating and a teak pedestal table expands for outdoor dining. Aft of the sofa is another sunbathing area complete with a retractable sunshade. The cockpit also features a wetbar that includes a sink, coolbox refrigeration, electric stove, and lots of storage.
Upon entering through the aft doors, the salon is bathed in natural light from the large, picture windows, and there is an overwhelming feeling of home thanks to the hardwood flooring with Berber carpet. Another u-shaped couch is starboard that faces a television. The interior is climate-controlled by a Cruiseair chilled-water system for total comfort. The interior helm is raised for increased visibility and has everything you need for ultimate control.
The galley is accessed below deck from a curved staircase and is well-equipped. It is placed portside and is the center of the walkway area between the staterooms and salons. Everything you need to prepare a full-course meal for your guests is here including a 4-zone flush-mount ceramic glasstop range, microwave with convection oven, Waeco refrigeration and freezer, and plenty of storage.
HIGH BID features a 3-stateroom layout, as well as a crew quarters aft. The master stateroom is found midship and features a king-sized walk-around berth, large windows for excellent light and ventilation, comfortable sofa, desk with chair, and lots of storage for clothes. It also has a spa-like en suite bathroom. The VIP is placed forward and is nearly as elegant as the master. It has a queen-sized berth, over-sized port lights, and excellent cabinetry. The VIP also has its own bathroom. The third guest cabin is starboard and features twin berths, as well as private access to the day head.
The engines (seen below) are the big CAT C-32 ACERT 1,702bhp engines that had only 590 hours on it since new. Other mechanical features include ABT-Trac Hydraulic Stabilizer fins, Onan 27kW generator, and a lot more!
