The party season is an excellent time for superyacht owners to take to the water and visit favourite haunts or discover somewhere entirely new. Cruising from port to port will often draw admirers and these five unique superyachts are of particular interest: Whether they were commissioned by Steve Jobs or among the largest charter superyachts in the world, these luxury yachts each have something to seize the imagination.
Captured on camera at Fort Lauderdale, Florida, M/Y AVIVA (ex.AVIVA III) from Abeking & Rasmussen was built in 2007 and has cruised the charter grounds of the Mediterranean as well as the Caribbean & Bahamas. This 68m/223ft vessel has 7 staterooms to sleep up to 16 guests, who are looked after by a crew of 25.
Built by Devonport Yachts (now Pendennis Plus), 96m/318ft VAVA II is the megayacht of Swiss billionaire Ernesto Bertarelli. Spotted while berthed in San Diego, she is currently within the top 50 largest yachts in the world and her 17m/57ft beam creates plenty of space for amenities such as a swimming pool, a fold-down beach club and a helipad.
Oceanco 87m/285ft luxury yacht NIRVANA was snapped in Antibes along the South of France late in December, showing that the charter ground has year-round appeal. M/Y NIRVANA is known to have a top speed of 20 knots and a long list of luxury amenities, including an infinity swimming pool, a helipad, a whirlpool Jacuzzi, sauna, cinema, gym and fold-down terraces off the salon.
Steve Jobs’s 78m/256ft superyacht VENUS returned to the Feadship facilities in Harlingen in early September 2017 for a refit and upgrade of her systems, but that didn’t stop her from crossing the Atlantic two months later to be spotted along the coast of Mustique. There is a crew of 22 to look after 12-14 guests, who have a choice of indoor and outdoor relaxation areas for dining and relaxation.
