Yacht Madsummer - Jeffrey Soffer

Jeffrey Soffer was the owner of the yacht Madsummer, which he sold in 2018. He and his family have owned several yachts, all named Madsummer

Jeffrey SofferWho is Jeffrey Soffer?

Jeffrey Soffer is the son of Donald Soffer, founder of Turnberry Associates. Together with his sister Jeffery is co-CEO of the company.

Jeffrey Soffer is a leading real estate developer, active in South Florida.

Turnberry Associates

Turnberry was founded 50 yars ago when Donald Soffer purchased 785 acres of submerged, undeveloped swamp and marshland facing the Intracoastal Waterway in North Dade County, Florida

The swamp was turned into the city of Aventura. The city now has a population of more than 36,000.

The company has created many of South Florida’s signature residential condominium developments, including Porto Vita, Turnberry Ocean Colony, the Tresor and Sorrento towers at Fontainebleau Miami Beach.

The Aventura Mall, also owned by the Soffer family is one of the largest shopping malls in Florida. The mall Mall features a collection of upscale boutiques and more than 300 of the world’s most iconic, recognized retailers.

Fontainebleau Aviation

The family operates Fontainebleau Aviation, based on Opa Locka Airport, near Miami. WE think Jerry Soffer owns a Bombardier Global 5000 with registration N954L. (We are not sure what the L refers to)

Soffer Family Net worth

The net worth of the Soffer family is estimated at US$ 2.2 billion.

Jeffrey Soffer House

Soffer lives in a large mansion on Indian Creek Island near Miami.

Yacht Madsummer

Soffer has owned several yachts, all named Madsummer.

The first Madsummer, was also the largest: 78.5 meter (258 ft) Lurssen designed by Espen Oeino.

The Lurssen could accommodate 18 guests and a crew of 25. The yacht was delivered in 2009. Unfortunately soon after delivery of the yacht,  the Soffer family ran into a financial difficult period.

In 2010 they swapped ownership of yachts with Mexican billionaire Emilio Fernando Azcárraga Jean (who owned a 44 meter Feadship named TV). The US$ 100 million 78 meter Madsummer became TV, while the 44 meter Feadship (valued at US$ 35 million) became Madsummer.

The 44 meter yacht can accommodate 12 guests and a crew of 10. In 2014 the Feadship Madsummer was sold again.

Soon Jeffrey Soffer purchased a 55 meter Feadship, built as Twizzle in 2005. The 55 meter yacht can accommodate 10 guests and a crew of 14.  There are many photos online of Soffer and his (now ex-) wife Elle MacPherson enjoying holidays on the yacht.

Early 2018 the 55 meter Feadship was sold, she is now named Cinthia.

And we now understand why.. We were told that the 95 meter Lurssen Project Fiji is the new Madsummer. She will be delivered in 2019.

Soffer also owned a meter Sunseeker named Mad Summer, which was based behind his home in Miami.
