In what has been quite a spectacular year for IAG Yachts and following on from some successful shows in Shanghai and Hong Kong, and Fort Lauderdale last year, the Chinese based shipyard has managed to complete sales on their first two production models in 2011, the 127 foot Primadonna to a buyer in Florida and the 100 foot Electra to a buyer in China.

Ensign Yachts International, appointed exclusive international agents for IAG Yachts for Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and Thailand are enjoying rapid growth despite the economical climate in the marine industry and say the next few years are promising to be exciting times with their expansion into the superyacht arena.

IAG opened the new year of 2012 with the sale of another new model which is a 135 foot model to an American client.

'I am extremely happy that we have sold a completely new model besides the two we have at present. It marks that IAG will have a new series production', said Michael Chang, President of IAG Yachts.

'We’re continuing to hear big news that many American buyers are purchasing yachts almost impulsively at this size within the USA market' said Chang. 'It’s been forecasted that America’s yachting culture is mature and recent success particularly within the region demonstrates this.'

The spacious RINA classed KingBaby is built for charter, designed by REDS which is an outstanding Italian design company, and boasts 5 ensuite staterooms sleeping up to 12 guests. With the voluminous owner’s stateroom featuring groundbreaking headroom, a large main salon with dining area, a nice walk around deck on the sky lounge and a very open sun deck that features a large Jacuzzi and bar area, the space on this yacht is unparalleled in any other design in its class.

According to the confirmation from the shipyard, the yacht will be delivered in 23 months to the client, and all the design works are presently developing rapidly at the hands of IAG’s skilled design staff.

The shipyard reveals that the client is an experienced yachtsman who owns a 100 foot yacht at present. Furthermore, the client enjoys being immersed in the design process, therefore the final design of this first 135’ model will be reflected with many ideas from the client directly. The buyer’s expectations in IAG are very high and he is confident that we will meet his exacting requirements.

Ensign Yachts is excited to offer the IAG range to its superyacht buyers, as they too hold a similar belief that these buyers deserve the highest standards of design and construction, combined with the greatest possible value for money.
