Lady Moura Superyacht
Piano Bar Superyacht
Princess Mariana Superyacht
RM Elegant Superyacht
The word ‘yacht’ alone is enough to evoke feelings of refinement, quality, wealth and taste. But like with any commodity, there are ‘yachts’ and there are ‘super yachts’. With so many to choose from, discovering the best luxury yachts can be a daunting task. To support you on your campaign to soon be seafaring the most illustriously elegant, exquisitely refined and breathtakingly beautiful yacht money can buy, Façonnable have pinned down their five best luxury yachts.
Consistent with her name, this glorious yacht exudes royalty, opulence and splendour, and those seeking the definitive in luxury yacht chartering will by no means be disappointed with Princess Mariana.
Built in 2003 in the Danyard Aalborg in Denmark by the naval architect Espen Oeino, this ultra-modern and chic yacht’s interior was designed by Francois Zuretti and is packed out with innovative features. But the most remarkable feature of this stunningly stylish yacht, which can accommodate up to five guests, is the Beach Club – a dry dock that can be flooded to form a 12 meter swimming pool.
Not a name one would normally associate with a yacht, but this majestically royal vessel is named after one of its large decking areas, which has been converted into a bar with a grand piano. And grand is an appropriate word to describe this magnificently graceful yacht. Being a striking 156-foot long boat, the Piano Bar consists of large staterooms, various entertainment areas, a large outdoor kitchen, a hot tub and several lounging areas. With all this room to stretch out and relax, although the Piano Bar can accommodate up to 12 guests, the yacht never feels full or crowded. It stands to reason that a yacht so elegant in its design and of such high quality was manufactured by Picchiotti and brokered by Fraser Yachts.
RM Elegant – Luxury Charter
For those favouring the jet-set, party-hard lifestyle the RM Elegant most definitely should be their luxury yacht of choice. With 15 king-sized bedrooms with cable TV, several spacious dining rooms, a beauty salon, massage rooms and hot tub, this elegant boat, with its 30 plus staff dedicated to answering to your every whim, is the ultimate party yacht and can accommodate up to 30 revellers seeking sun, sea and sumptuousness.
Built in 1991 for the Saudi prince Nasser al-Rashid, the stunning Lady Moura is 354-feet long, has a swimming pool with retractable roof, an artificial beachfront and a crew of 60. Given this, it could be fair to surmise that Lady Moura may rival the RM Elegant in the ultimate charter yachting party stakes.
In boasting two helicopters, several smaller boats and a ten-person submarine, the Octopus may be going a little too far in the extravagance stakes. Created by Paul Allen, the 416-feet long Octopus has a crew of 40 and really is the quintessence of luxury yachts.
