Sportsmen, pop stars, businessmen – they all have one thing in common when it comes to yachts: nothing in common will do. There is something special about all of the following superyachts, however, and it’s not just the price.Jeff Bezos’ alleged “flying fox”
This one is, by far, the most controversial because it would have been held by the “space cowboyâHimself, but the rumors have not been confirmed. It is also doubly famous because, aside from the alleged owner, it is the yacht chosen by iconic couple Beyonce and Jay-Z to celebrate the beloved singer’s 40th birthday last month. Photos shared by the couple from their month-long vacation in Europe showed some of the luxury of the 466-foot (142-meter) beauty, the 14th tallest in the world.
Built by Lurssen Yachts, the Flying Fox has not one but two helipads, in addition to a generous swimming pool, a gym, a spa and a cinema. With access to a master suite that unfolds across the entire upper deck and 55 crew members, there’s no doubt that Beyonce and Jay-Z received very special treatment on board. For a yacht that costs four million dollars a week to charter, that’s to be expected. “Solaris” by Roman Abramovich
The owner of Chelsea FC already owns the world’s most expensive mega-yacht, the Eclipse. But Solaris, which was completed at the Lloyd Werft shipyard in Germany earlier this year, is touted as one of the most technologically advanced yachts. The 460-foot (140-meter) mega-yacht was designed with eight decks and 46 cabins. She is powerful enough to reach 18 knots, and she is equipped for longer voyages in remote areas, such as an explorer type yacht.
Of course, it has the classic beach club, a helipad, a huge swimming pool and a jacuzzi. But what sets Solaris apart is its advanced security system, including armored protection, bulletproof windows, and even a radar-controlled missile detection system. After all, when you buy a custom yacht, you decide the priorities. And that’s what Abramovich did, for an advertised price of $ 610 million.Tom Brady’s “Viva La Vida”
Not the first smaller Wajer yacht, but a second model from the same Dutch luxury builder, which is 77 feet (23.5 meters) long. The successful quarterback said a larger boat would allow him, his wife Giselle Bundchen and their children to enjoy more frequent weekend trips to exotic locations. Wajer is known for its technological innovations, and the new Viva La Vida also combines ultra-comfortable layout with modern features, such as an automatic roof, cooled deck and a hybrid protection system for the hull. In addition, she was designed to be the quietest yacht in her class.
Unlike other celebrity-owned yachts that were intended for big parties with many guests on board, Brady’s $ 6 million yacht offers a much more intimate and relaxed atmosphere, perfect for a family vacation. Sleek and fast (reaching 30 knots), the second Viva La Vida also has a wide range of water toys, which is not surprising considering that Tom and Giselle are both very sporty. “Maraya” by Diddy
Legend of the R&B world and the music industry in general, Sean Combs (known as P. Diddy, Diddy and several others) is one of the few famous millionaires who have remained loyal to a yacht for long enough. After owning Oasis, a yacht from Lurssen, he bought Maraya, built by CRN Ancona, a subsidiary of the famous Ferretti group, in 2018.
The magnificent superyacht, which he also took advantage of this summer, cost him around $ 65 million and is almost 54 meters long. Maraya is both a heavenly oasis for relaxation, with a master suite that includes an office, a private balcony and a luxurious spa-like bathroom, and the perfect place to party, thanks to the disco area that cradles a bar, a screening room, and several dining rooms. Diddy and his guests can relax in the wellness area or choose one of the many water toys on board when they’re not partying.Jeff Bezos’ Shadow Yacht “YS 7512”
Yes, once again Bezos – the name of the space race billionaire was linked not only to the Flying Fox, but also to a mysterious Project 721, a 417-foot (127-meter) Oceanco yacht, which is said to be Holland’s tallest. But what’s even more interesting is that Project 721 comes with a ghost yacht. This is a recent trend in the superyacht world, where all crew and support equipment are transferred to a second support vessel which follows the mothership as an assistant.
Built by reputable Yachts Damen, YS 7512 is believed to be the ghost yacht of Bezos’ Project 721. Both are still in development and are slated for delivery in 2022. If you own a $ 500 million superyacht, it’s no surprise that the Shadow Yacht would be a 246-foot (75-meter) model with a price tag. estimated at over $ 50 million. Everything from the hardware store to the interior design is always luxurious. The main difference compared to a conventional yacht is that the support vessels have a special layout, with extra room for tenders, toys and helicopters, as well as features that allow for a faster and safer launch.
Ranging from sleek family boats to breathtaking massive models, celebrity yachts never cease to arouse our curiosity and allow us to peek inside a world of luxury.
