Edmiston is the only major broker with a dedicated classic yacht office. Based in Antibes and headed up by Mike Horsley, clients can rely on our expertise and detailed knowledge of this very specialised market.

MALAHNE - For Charter

Having restored 32 metre Bluebird and 90 metre Nahlin, Edmiston has a proven track record in Classic restoration projects. And so it was with Malahne. Built in 1937 at Camper & Nicholsons this gentleman’s motor yacht was transformed from rusting hulk to immaculate award-winner.

The team of exterior designers GL Watson, interior stylist Oliver Laws and shipyard Pendennis was put together by Nicholas Edmiston. 500,000 hours in the remaking, Malahne’s restoration was also managed by Edmiston.

Malahne brilliantly demonstrates how classic and contemporary can be the best of both worlds.

TALITHA - For Charter

Some people think Talitha is the greatest of the 1930s clipper bow classics.

Talitha is beautifully poised and immaculately maintained. New for this year is a funnel deck dining and lounging area that is at the same time secluded but prominent, providing viewsover the entire yacht from lounging bowsprit to cushioned fantail.

Talitha’s crew is one of the most highly rated in yachting. Everything from an outdoor cinema to the elegant dining terrace is set up and served by a team that takes guest service to another level.


Built in 1936, Thendara is one of the most renowned classics on the regatta circuit where she has enjoyed much success.

She is the only gaff-rigged yacht to fly a jackyard topsail on both main and mizzen masts – a feature that makes her immediately recognisable and highly distinctive.

Authentically Edwardian, she has beamed deckheads, mahogany panelling and numerous other period features alongside totally modern technology for technical and entertainment systems. Available for €3.75 million vat paid, the owner is a keen seller and would also consider a real estate part exchange deal.
