M/Y CUJO: More than a vessel a piece of history

27 Octobre, 2019


Yachtside Group facing a great challenge. It was in early August that Yachtside was chosen to sell an unusual boat, a unique piece that was almost half a century old but did not get a ride. It is the M/Y CUJO, a jewel of the Fayed family

Moody Fayed Ownership

By 2016, Dodi’s side of the family decides to put her up for sale. Several offers are received but in comes Moody, Dodi’s cousin. These two were very close, and the idea that someone could take away Dodi’s baby and all the memories was something he couldn’t allow to happen. Moody makes a counteroffer, which is accepted by the family trust. He saves Cujo at the last minute. An extensive refit gets underway, nothing is left untouched, with a budget of 800’000€, Cujo is reborn, improved and modernized. She regains all her splendor. The result is breathtaking.

Cujo was used extensively by the current owner for the last two summer seasons, mostly cruising in Sardinia and the Amalfi Coast, but having young children and spending more time traveling, and spending time in their home in Porto Cervo, they have taken the difficult decision to sell this little gem. Moody would now like to find a new home for her, someone that will love and cherish her and her legacy.


Thanks to our team and to Art Curial, Cujo will be part of the Racing, Flying & Yachting Retromobile Auction 2020 which will take place 7 of February.
