450EX_3 450EX_1 450EX_2

Rolls-Royce and Yachts. That is how high rollers roll on both Terra firma and Aqua fluida. So why not blend em both into a single entity to make a splash (quite literally) in the luxury scene? That is what Stefan Munro has attempted with his Rolls Royce 450EX yacht concept. With a 14.5m length, the 450EX is intended as a daytime luxury cruiser with the prestige of the luxury marque. His internship at Rolls Royce seems to have helped Stefan to seamlessly embed the design DNA and principles of the RR styling on to a different platform. The subtle exteriors that reflect the sober English etiquette blends smoothly with the aggressive looking exposed parts. o well that it feels like a cup of earl grey spiked with Red Bull. The Phantomish nose, the stance, the body lines all speaks the RR connect. Of course, in a controlled voice, like gentlemen do. As expected, the interiors are elegantly luxurious. The design also proposes features like monocoque chasis and suspended interiors for added comfort. Pampered with the stylish aesthetics and luxurious features of 450EX, the only thing left to do would be uncorking that champagne bottle and letting the spirit of ecstasy flow overboard.

Greek Cypriot industrialist and art collector Dakis Joannou who green-lighted American artist Jeff Koons and Italian yacht designer Ivana Porfiri to create for him this mega yacht, ’Guilty.’ The stunning looks and amenities of this 115-feet long ship, inspired by the naval camouflage used by Britain during World War I, Guilty’s yellow rhombuses, pink triangles and blue polygons become even more amazing when reflected off the water. Onboard there are 180-degree views of the envious and awestruck rest of the world, along with plenty of bedrooms filled with museum-worthy works of art.

Featuring the 10th most expensive yacht in the world is the Lady Moura, custom built by Blohm + Voss shipyards in 1990 for Saudi Arabian businessman Nasser Al-Rashid.

On board the 344-foot Lady Moura is a pool with retractable roof, a helicopter and a 75-foot Viscount Linley dining room table. However, the Lady Moura’s most remarkable feature is, without a doubt, the unique sand-covered hydraulic platform that slides out of one side of the yacht which can be adjusted to sit right at the waterline. Not only does this floating oasis boast real sand and deck chairs, but also palm trees for a truly authentic experience. The Lady Moura also features a Mangusta 80 boat or 48-feet Sant Juan boat, as well as a S76B helicopter. Finally, the yacht is capable of accommodating up to 30 guests and carrying 60 crew members.

There is nothing unique about the name of this luxury liner however, the 400-feet long Superyacht A does boast an original design. Reminiscent of a stealth warship or submarine, it was designed by  Blohm + Voss of Hamburg and named after the first initials of the fortunate owners, Andrey and Aleksandra Melnichenko, the Russian billionaire and his wife.

4. Azzam – $650 million

Lürssen Yachts is behind this luxury liner which was recently delivered to fortunate Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nayan, President of the United Arab Emirates and Emir of Abu Dhabi for no less than $650 million. This makes it the world’s fourth most expensive luxury yacht with the makers boasting that the Azzam is “the most complex and challenging yacht that has ever been built”. However, not only has the Azzam been dominating the headlines for its hefty price tag but also due to its immense size. Measuring in at 590 feet long, this floating extravagance boasts the largest private yacht in the world thus knocking the Eclipse, belonging to Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, off the top spot. In addition, this impressive superyacht is expected to be one of the fastest reaching speeds of more than 30 knots, or 35mph. The luxury interiors were designed by French interior decorator Christophe Leoni which has been described as “sophisticated and luxurious in a turn of the century Empire style”. For the moment little else is known about the Azzam. Now the only question remaining is, with the world’s billionaires constantly competing to own the largest superyacht, how long will it remain at the top?

3. Streets of Monaco – $1.1 billion

As the name indicates this luxury yacht comprises a floating replica of the city of Monaco. To be more precise, the Streets of Monaco is modelled on a section of Monte Carlo and expected to cost  over $1.1 billion. The reason for such a hefty price tag is that, unlike your more traditional luxury liner, this extraordinary 500-foot superyacht by Yacht Island Design of Derbyshire County in England, features scaled-down reproductions of landmarks from the billionaire playground of Monaco. They include the famous Monte Carlo Casino and racetrack, as well as Hotel de Paris. Cafe de Paris, La Rascasse and the Loews Hotel. Streets of Monaco also boasts swimming pools and tennis courts in addition to sumptuous living quarters imitating those featuring in Monaco’s finest hotels. They include seven guest suites (accommodating up to 16 people) with accompanying receptions rooms, bathrooms, dressing rooms and balconies all located in the Atrium, the ship’s centrepiece. Similarly, the Atrium houses the main apartment of the fortunate billionaire owner, approximately the size of a luxury penthouse, spreading over three floors and extending over 4,800 square feet. Finally, on board the Streets of Monaco there also BBQ facilities, a mini waterfall, a unique café-bar boasting underwater views, helicopters and submarines. The only question that remains is whether they will find a billionaire with enough money to turn this dream boat into a reality!

2. Eclipse – $1.5 billion

Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich is proud owner of the Eclipse, the second most expensive yacht in the world.

1. History Supreme ~ Price: $4.5 billion

Finally, boasting the world’s most expensive yacht is the History Supreme. This pricey 100-foot  vessel was designed by world-renowned UK luxury designer Stuart Hughes, took over 3 years to complete and was purchased by an anonymous Malaysian businessman  for a whopping $4.5 billion dollars! This staggering sum is owed to the solid gold and platinum used to assembly this luxury liner which features no less than 100,000 kg (220,000 Ibs) of these precious metals. They adorn the entirety of the boat right from the base of the vessel, coated in a thin layer of solid gold, to the dining area, deck, rails, staircases and anchor.

McLaren Helps Design Boats.


You are looking at renders of the world’s largest sailing trimaran. It is called the CXL Trimaran Concept and it features a garage for your personal McLaren MP4-12C.  The 158-foot-long trimaran superyacht was designed by manufacturer UltraLuxum. It features retractable outer hulls designed by McLaren Applied Technologies.  Its impressive storage facilities necessitate its massive shape, coming in at 48 meters in length and 60 meters in height.  Ultraluxum maintains its interest in and commitment to the environment despite CXL 160’s massive measurements.  The company points out that it is a wind-powered vessel and that it will be further propelled by a battery operated system.

Yacht Concept “Cronos”.


This elegant yacht concept called Cronos was designed by Simone Madella and Lorenzo Berselli, Italian students. Cronos Yacht Design concept has received a special mention in the “Young Professional” category during the Millenium Yacht Design Award (MYDA) with special quote “interesting experimentation in expressive language applied to interior architecture, with particular to the value of wood and its use forms”. Stunningly intricate woodwork seems to grow from within the opulent interior and extend across spacious decks before pouring over into the water. Minimal and at the same time futuristic interior and exterior make this luxurious yacht an ideal for traveling.

The Superyacht You Can Control With An iPad?


The iPad can control all kinds of devices, from your Apple TV or remote desktop or AR.Drone, to slightly more bizarre things like a robotic prison guard. Given that, it was only a matter of time before someone used it as part of an overall badass project, like the Adastra Superyacht.

The $15 million Adastra Superyacht is a 139-foot-long yacht built by Hong Kong billionaire Anto Marden and yacht designer John Shuttleworth. The boat itself looks futuristic, but the coolest part is that you (or somebody) can control it using an iPad. With the iPad control system, someone can guide the yacht from up to 164 feet away.

I imagine it’s a bit like controlling a toy boat, only it’s friggin’ huge. The chassis of the 47-ton superyacht is made out of carbon fiber, with a glass and Kevlar foam sandwich hull. Adastra can travel at its optimum speed of 17 knots–which is around 20mph–for up to 4,000 miles.

While I don’t know much about what’s onboard yet, it would be interesting to see what other tech the boat uses. A fully automated wet bar, perhaps?

The ‘WHY’ Concept By Hermes & Wally.


A luxurious on-ground villa, that offers to its residents the comfort, spaciousness and interior flexibility but yet immobile?  Or a limited in space and wavering but at the same time capable of transferring you to any place you want yacht?  That could always be the question faced by clients of the luxury leisure sector.  Trying to address this issue while simultaneously implementing the know-how and craftsmanship of both companies, the Monaco-based yacht maker Wally and the luxury French brand Hermès, created WHY – a state-of the-art vessel, for which the idea of the hull was initially taken from a seismic vessel, and was redesigned and adapted to the needs of the sea. The outcome was a super-luxurious yacht which measures 58 meters long and 38 meters wide and can accommodate 12 guests and 20 crew members.

The interior of the yacht follows the high standards of the design companies and is fitted out with water resistant leather, whereas wood is used in most of the interior areas of the vessel.  The total 3.400m² guest surface areas, is divided into three different levels containing all rooms that could be found in a luxury villa such as lounges, dining rooms, libraries and spa areas.

The yacht has been tested under various conditions and the outcome is that under unfavorable weather conditions it remains more stable than any other of its type, and when anchored it creates a flat surface behind it where swimmers feel as if they are in an Olympic-sized pool.  Since the aim of the project is to create a boat that imitates the specifications of a luxury villa but also has the advantages of a boat, it also means that the vessel must be so stable so that the guests can engage in the same activities as they would on the ground.  WHY’s ability to offer this, is probably proved by the fact that it carries around it a real jogging track inspired by coastal paths.

Colorful Designs.


Design’s love affair with bold color inches one step further with the application of graphic art into everything from tables to chairs, bookshelves and even yachts. Cappellini gave Adam Goodrum’s ‘Stitch’ chair the colour treatment with blocks or red, blue, white and black applied to the segments of the aluminium folding chair. Designer Enzo Berti recasts the humble bookshelf as a canvas for graphic prints with his Bar Code Street shelves. London based artist Anna James, who transforms pieces of 20th century furniture into contemporary art works, applied a clean graphic to her Genoa table. And of course who can forget Jeff Koon’s ‘art’ yacht, released last year, which is still wowing onlookers on the Mediterranean.

The Sunseeker 155 Yacht.


UK yacht builder Sunseeker presents the new flagship tri-deck motor yacht Sunseeker 155, which is currently in build and is due to be launched in 2014.  With a 4500 nautical mile range, this is the first ever semi-displacement, round bilge and long keel hull from Sunseeker.  This yacht will reportedly have 40 percent more interior space than the company’s current flagship, the Sunseeker 40M.  Sunseeker will allow personal customization, with owners being able to make their specifications and requests with regard to the superstructure as well as the interiors.  With a top speed of up to 26 knots the 155 Yacht will accommodate up to 12 guests and 10 crew members.

A Look At Steve Jobs’ Unfinished Feadship Superyacht.


Steve Jobs was designing his own Feadship superyacht at the time of his death. The vessel had been in development since 2009.  The design is said to be sleek and minimalist, naturally, with 40-foot-long glass walls and was to be built at Feadship’s facility in the Netherlands.  “Sometimes, word gets out about one of our yachts,” Feadship tells Super Yacht News regarding the report.  We often build for captains of industry, royalty and other leading individuals. Understandably, our clients value their privacy greatly and consequently we never discuss our owners’ identity. We choose not to comment.”  So what would Job’s yacht look like? Feadship’s Breathe concept, first unveiled at the Monaco Boat Show last year, is probably a good indication.  Drawing inspiration from biomimicry, which imitates forms found in nature, it is one of the most radical Feadship designs to date.

The Space Yacht.


We’ve talked about a few spaceship-looking yacht concepts here before, but this one from John Shuttleworth Yacht Designs takes the cake. Why? Well, because it’s not a concept (it’s actually being built in China for a couple from Hong Kong).  Dubbed Adastra, this super-yacht comes from 5 long years of design work. When it’s completed it will stretch 139-ft and cruise along at about 22.5 knots. There will be room for about 9 passengers and crew of up to 6. Pushing this spacecraft through the sea will be a 1150hp Caterpillar C18 engine along with smaller, 110hp engines on the outer hulls.

The interior features everything you would expect to find in a yacht of this caliber, a dining area, bathroom, sunbed, lounge, bar and bedrooms. With all that luxury onboard engineers have gone to great lengths to make sure the boat remains light enough for low fuel consumption. For instance, things like cabinetry have been built with honeycomb style wood rather than solid pieces and many of the yacht’s components are made of carbon fiber.

The Maxi Racing Yacht.


The boys at Wally have created a breakthrough yachting concept with the launch of a completely new idea. The Wally//Otto is the only One Design Maxi racing fleet.  Otto has been designed to sail with a limited crew and limited sail inventory to minimize campaign costs and maximize enjoyment.  The Otto also features a unique aft ’guest experience’ area where guests can enjoy the racing in comfort and safety, removed from the operations of the racing crew.

When not racing, the Otto can quickly transform into a comfortable and easy to sail ‘day-cruiser’, extending the enjoyment of the boat across the whole season.  As a One Design fleet, the Otto can expect greater racing longevity. Otto has also been designed with the necessary headroom and bulkhead positions to successfully convert into a spacious Wally cruiser-racer, with salon, galley and three guest cabins.

Yeah, Thats A BOAT.


Not too long ago, I was in Miami for work (and play), and I had the immense please of getting to see the “Never Say Never”.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with awesomeness, the “Never Say Never” is the boat on which the SNL comedy sketch ‘I’m On A Boat’ was filmed.  I don’t typically get star struck, but for some odd reason, seeing that particular boat was mesmerizing.  That being said, this post is about a boat that dwarfs the “Never Say Never” in every way possible.  The 55 metre superyacht Quinta Essentia, the largest vessel ever launched by the Netherlands’ Heesen Yachts, has been listed for sale for $100 million.  With sleek exterior lines by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, the yacht’s most striking feature is a grand swimming pool on the aft deck complete with a waterfall.  The yacht has a very modern interior by Ken Freivokh Design and Michela Reverberi with metallic silver accents.

Boating Around The Port Of Maimi.



99% of the time I travel, it’s either for business or for vacation.  Rarely do I ever mix a trip up with a bit of both, but my recent voyage to Miami was just that.  My assistant and I stayed up the entire night before to leave at 3 in the morning, jumped on our plane before the sun came up, made a short trip to Texas, and got into MIA before night fall.  Immediately the next morning we got up and started drinking before grabbing some food at the beach and getting down to business.  Most of our days were like that until our last, where some friends and one of my cousins linked up and took an interesting, and very relaxing trip on a private boat around some of the water ways of Miami.

Aside from a few dolphins that were chilling by our boat, some of the highlights of that morning were some of the sights around Star Island.  We peeped out one of Diddy’s cribs, saw one of the original MTV Cribs houses, and even swung by a MONSTER boat owned by the prince of some Arab nation… and his “shadow boat” that was equally as big, required 30 crew to operate, only carried his cars, smaller boats, and other various toys, and who’s sole purpose was to follow his main boat around just in case he needed some extra entertainment.  (Baller).  I took some pics of a couple of other attractions.  Check the method below.

The $22 Mil. Yacht where they filmed "I'm On A Boat".

The most photographed house in Miami... The mansion where they filmed Scarface.

The pool house of Al Capone's Maimi compound.

And once again, an infinite thank you to Kamekia, Danny, B, Ash, and Jay.

The Red Square Yacht.


The Red Square Dunya Yacht is inspired by the Red Square in Moscow. It is 72 meters long, knows how to combine modernity and elegance. With up to 12 guests and crew, with 3 red teak decks and all the amenities of rigor, it unfortunately still no official price.

Wanna Rent a Super-Yacht?


For $1 million per month you can now charter the world’s coolest super-yacht, the 164-ft. Exuma built by Perini Navi, in the South Pacific.  The Exuma, the first motor yacht from the world-famous builder of the Maltese Falcon, and can accommodate ten guests in five luxurious staterooms.  The aluminum-hulled Exuma is the first model in the Picchiotti Vitruvius series, a collaboration between Perini Navi, Vitruvius Ltd. and architect Philippe Briand.  Interior furnishings were designed by Perini Navi’s in-house team with a focus on classic maritime style tradition, using oak, teak and Italian marble.  The sleek ship has a range of 5,500 nautical miles at 12 knots and comes equipped with a fully customized 16.4 ft. amphibious vehicle and a Hov Pod 12 ft. hovercraft housed in two tender garages with gull-wing doors.  The Exuma will also be available for charter on a weekly basis for $250,000.

The ‘Remora’ Super Yacht.


UK-based design consultancy Claydon Reeves has unveiled an 80m superyacht christened ‘Remora’ at the 2010 Monaco Yacht Show.  The sleek craft is characterized by a narrow plumb bow, highly resolved, dynamic, taut surfaces and concave glass angling to its tapering stern.  The elaborate structure of the sundeck is a nod to Spanish Modernisme architect Antonio Gaudi and an indication of Claydon Reeves’ aesthetic ambitions.  A strong emphasis is placed upon the interplay of concave and convex surfaces to create intriguing reflections and highlights.  From the front the Remora resembles the Philippe Starck-designed superyacht ‘A’.  The yacht’s interior consists of vast architecturally interesting spaces including a double height main deck mezzanine, soaring forward public areas and duplex guest suites.  The Owner’s suite features a private deck aft of the bridge for a truly seigneurial experience.  The yacht’s high tech looks are matched by the equipment in its engine room: a state-of-the-art diesel electric propulsion system mated to a pair of azimuthing drive pods…  I’m on a boat b*tch.
