Dear friend,
Phillipe Valetoux published a very well documented and illustrated paper, Les
yachts de Jules Verne, in "Le Chasse Marée" 140 (Jan. 2001)p 16-31. In this
paper we can read:

"Dans "Le Yacht" du 18 Juillet 1885, on peut lire "Le steam-yacht Saint Michel
III, qui appartenait M. Jules Verne, a été acheté par M. Marcel Noé de
Nantes." Cet acquereur est courtier maritime (.....) En décembre 1885, le
steam-yacht est revendu à un riche aristocrate. Dans sa livraison du 13 mars
1886, Le Yacht indique : "Le Saint Michel III, recemment entre les mains de M.
Marcel Noé, vient d'être cédé au prince de Monténégro. ...."

So that, the 2 dates given by the biographers are more or less good ... most
of them say that JV sold his yacht to the prince of Montenegro in 1886, in
fact they forgot Mr Noé...

I think that the number of "Le chasse marée" is always available, see the URL
of the publisher.
