RISMEDIA, May 26, 2009-The World, the 644-foot luxury liner gracefully appointed with 165 private homes and the only residential community at sea, has selected Christie’s Great Estates for international marketing services.
ResidenSea, the ship’s management company, will now operate as the exclusive affiliate for the oceans and seas of the world. Christie’s Great Estates was instrumental in successfully selling the original offerings of suites and apartments before the ship’s launch in 2002 and has been enlisted once again to provide premiere marketing for the ship’s resale residences. Residences now available range in price from U.S. $800,000 to U.S. $6.5 million, with one unique and exquisite six-bedroom penthouse offered for U.S. $17.5 million.
“We are delighted with our renewed association with Christie’s Great Estates,” says Nikki F. Upshaw, senior vice president, Marketing & Sales. “We look forward to working closely with the Christie’s Great Estates global affiliate network to introduce discerning clients to the unique lifestyle that the cosmopolitan community of residents aboard The World has already discovered.”
“This unprecedented trans-global affiliation is the perfect convergence of corporate cultures,” says Rick Moeser, vice president of Christie’s Great Estates. “Both Christie’s Great Estates and The World specialize in five-star residences to an international clientele in the most spectacular settings.”
