IpAuctions selling 10 Fexas designs

IpAuctions will auction 10 yacht designs created by the late designer Tom Fexas and currently owned by his estate.

Fexas was considered a pioneer in yachting design. The Florida resident began his business in 1966 and soon became renowned for unique and somewhat “retro” motoryacht designs.

He created hundreds of individual yacht designs, each tailored to the owners’ needs and desires. Fexas is widely known for his Midnight Lace 44, a retro luxury motoryacht of which Fexas said, “She was fast. She was efficient. She made no wake. It was all there.”

The 10 copyrighted designs offered for sale by Fexas’ estate and IpAuctions include outboard profile and general arrangement for yachts ranging from 65 to 145 feet. Each design includes originals hand-drawn by Fexas, a certificate of authenticity, artistic rendering, copyright, and a one-time use licensing agreement.

Minimum bids begin at $12,500 per design. Boatbuilders are invited to bid, as are boat owners or potential owners. Purchasers can use Fexas’ name for the boat brand. Each purchase includes five hours of consultation with the Fexas design staff to finalize hull design to meet the targeted usage requirements.
