One of the first new build charter vessels specified for the Australian market, 32-metre Oneworld arrived in Australia in 2018 and attracted a loyal and diverse charter clientele along the east coast, specialising in corporate and event charters on Sydney Harbour and liveaboard charters for longer stays in the Whitsundays.

The new owner has retained the long-standing captain and crew and Baily Marine Yachts Australia (BMYachts) will represent Oneworld to the international charter market.

Hannah Baily, Charter Manager & Broker at Standen Group represented both vendor and buyer in the process and said she is elated at the result and proud to have been involved in the successful sale of what is one of Australia’s most revered charter vessels.

“Having extensive knowledge across the industry enabled us to achieve a premium result for our client and subsequently, deliver an established charter business for our buyer who is thrilled with purchase,” she said.

Oneworld was one of the first vessels built specifically for the Australian charter market. We have a long history together. Through BMYachts we managed all aspects of the yacht’s operations and charters after her arrival into Australia from the Gulf Craft yard in the UAE.

“We will continue to manage the charter business for the new owners and are excited to see where we can take the business next.

“In terms of 5-star charters, Oneworld is at an echelon of its own and we look forward to sharing her hospitality with charter guests from around the world.”

The former owner stated that the entire sale process was “project-managed with skill and meticulous attention. The Standen Marine team was thorough and professional in their management of the various aspects of the brokerage transaction.

“They achieved a premium outcome for us, working with a number of prospective buyers and subsequently securing the best possible offer. Hannah Baily kept us informed at every step, which we found to be completely reassuring.

“As the progression of the sale involved a number of parties over several months, we were very pleased to see that the normal operations of Oneworld were not adversely impacted, particularly as the scheduled annual maintenance period occurred during the final stages of the deal, adding a layer of complexity to the negotiation.”

A head-turning superyacht on the harbour and waterways of Sydney or cruising the azure waters of the Whitsunday Islands, Oneworld is in demand for her innumerable unique attributes.

She was the first Majesty 100 to feature a partially enclosed flybridge, allowing guests to enjoy breathtaking views and connection with the water with the added luxury of indoor comfort and protection from the elements.

Oneworld can accommodate up to 12 guests in five staterooms, each with ensuite, and there’s a crew of six on board.

Powered by two 1,900 hp MAN engines, Oneworld has a maximum speed of 23 knots. The superyacht’s superior engineering and hull design makes her very fuel-efficient, enabling long-range travel.

Built to RINA Commercial Yacht Charter Class, Cayman Islands LY3 (Short Range) and AMSA NSCV Code Class 1E & 2C, Oneworld was specifically optimised for the Australian charter market.

Following the sale, Tavis Standen, CEO of the Standen Group commented, “It is wonderful to see such headway being made by experienced female brokers working in high-end brokerage,” he said.

“Hannah secured a tremendous outcome for our clients and we are proud to have been entrusted with the sale of one of Australia’s most iconic superyachts.”

Oneworld recently completed her annual maintenance period at Gold Coast City Marina and Shipyard where Standen Marine has its Gold Coast headquarter and the yacht is now ready to return to charter ahead of a busy summer season.
