The secret is an 82 meter (270ft) motor yacht built by Abeking & Rasmussen.
She is designed by Sam Sorgiovanni, while J.W. Harris is responsible for her interior. Harris was also responsible for the interior of Walton’s previous Feadship yacht. M/Y Secret was delivered to her owners in 2013.
She is powered by two Caterpillar diesel engines. Which are giving her a maximum speed of 13 knots. Her cruise speed is 8 knots. She has a range of more than 4,500nm.
She has a steel hull with an aluminum superstructure. She can often be found in Barcelona.
Nancy Walton’s ownership of Secret became clear following a legal dispute in the US between two yacht brokers, about the distribution of earned sales commission. (Nancy Walton was NOT a party in this dispute).
According to Broward County Case CACE11013809. A yacht broker named David Frazer was involved in the sale of Nancy Walton’s previous yacht. Which was also named Secret, to US investor Bruce Sherman.
Frazer was fired by the involved yacht broker before closing the sale. But now he claims a part of the sales commission on the sale.
Listed For Sale
In early 2019 the yacht was listed for sale at Burgess. Her (amended) asking price is EUR 99 million. Nancy and her husband bought the Oceanco yacht Jubilee and named her KAOS.
