10 Super Yachts That Will Suit Your Taste

,

Yacht ownership is a status symbol that shows the world you have a pocket as deep as the ocean. On one hand, it’s one way to reveal your personal preferences. So whether you are a chic chick or a thrill-seeker, there’s always a yacht that will suit your taste.

If you are a billionaire…

Maltese Falcon is for you. Considered by many to be the finest yacht on sail, it has a length of 88 meters and is as tall as the tablet in the arm of the Statue of Liberty. Owned by Silicon Valley billionaire Tom Perkins, this yacht is stocked with every luxury, gadget and sleek interior detail that only $130 million can afford.

If you are a boy who likes toys…

Brand new Xanadu heaves with the latest gizmos for 12 guests. There’s a gym on one of the three sundecks, alongside with a Jacuzzi, bar and a Teppenyaki grill. On board also are the hippest party equipment on the seas, from cinema screens, karaoke machines and a disco to hovercrafts, waterskis and wakeboards.

If you are an entertainer…

Sherakhan appears to be a classic beauty on the outside. The vast interior, though, is a total show-off, truly designed for 21st-century partying. There’s a spa, gym, library and a glamorous staircase to swish down in an evening dress. Sea-lovers could also enjoy its Laser sailing-boat as well as a harp and Bechstein grand piano, plus professional musicians to play on them.

If you are a fashionista…

Candyscape isn’t the biggest (only 44 meters long) of all yachts, nor the best. But what makes it standout are the impressive details that will wow any label-conscious guests: interior designs by Candy & Candy, 600-threadcount sheets custom-made in Italy, crew in Alasdhair Willis-designed uniforms, Louis Vuitton monogrammed wallpaper and a master bedroom with black Baccarat sconces and a grand black-marble bathroom.

If you are a glamour-puss…

Talitha G, owned by the Getty family, is one of the most old-fashioned glamorous vessels at sea yet she’s all polished wood, swags, silver and quilted upholstery, with 18 staff to look after just 12 guests. By day there are two graceful wooden Hacker tenders to play on and at night more than 1,000 movies to watch on the outdoor cinema screen after a dinner by chef Michael Sawa.

 

If you are a minimalist…

Parsifal III is both built for speed as well as style. Sailing at 12.5 knots, it is one of the most stylish of cruisers. This sleek, clean-lined 54-meter Perini Navi ketch has the space for sunbathing, endless pale decks and a lot of privacy.

If you are a traditionalist…

Christina O has been guested by VIPs like JFK, Jackie Kennedy, Winston Churchill, Frank Sinatra. Refurbished many times, this is more ship than yacht, with 18 staterooms, Michelin-star food, a Six Senses spa, mosaic-lined pool, plus a helipad.

If you are a serious sailor…

Hamilton II is one of the newest, sleekest sailing yachts on the market. This minimalist boat features acres of pale wood finishes and simple furnishing. Its lifting keel allows it to go into shallow waters and has a range of extras (kayaks, skis, fishing equipment and wakeboards). It can accommodate eight guests and a crew of six who are up for flying through the waves against the wind.

If you are adventurous…

Senses isn’t the most beautiful boat from the outside: plain white, clunky and broad. But the advance engineering on this superyacht gives it advantages that make it ideal for exploring and for taking to the high seas. Perfect for family getaways, given the amount of space, relaxed décor and unrivalled watersports toys.

If you are a lover of the new…

40 Signature Series fits perfectly for you. This 41-meter model is not to eveyone’s taste – ultra contemporary and with acres of window. But it does appeal to those who want sunlight streaming through every wall possible. A 50-sq.-meter upper saloon, with a 53-sq.-meter owner’s suite will appeal to those whose idea of luxury is simply space and more space.
