In the stratospheric world of billionaire Tilman Fertitta, extra is extra. And greater is healthier. Contemplate the hospitality mogul’s ever-expanding enterprise empire after which add his latest toy — a superyacht set to splash by means of the waters of the Med in April.
Our curiosity was peaked once we noticed information on a 77 meter (252 foot) Feadship yacht that “was commissioned by an skilled yachtsman, the venture has been designed by De Voogt Naval Architects,” based on Boat Worldwide. The extraordinary yacht’s launch has moreover captured the eye of Tremendous Yacht Instances, Mega Yacht Information, and Yacht Harbor.
The title of the floating behemoth: Boardwalk. The identical title as Fertitta’s 50 meter (163 ft) Westport motor yacht that has ridden the Fertitta household throughout waves of the Mediterranean and the Caribbean for a decade.
A bit extra analysis reveals that certainly the brand new vessel, which is headed this month for sea trials, was commissioned by Fertitta in 2016. 4 years is pretty customary for yacht building from the hull up. It was launched from the Feadship’s Aalsmeer shipyard in The Netherlands and in early January.
With an estimated price ticket of $150 million, the yacht has seven staterooms, a swimming pool, and, after all, a helipad accommodating Fertitta’s favored mode of journey.
The unique Boardwalk stays in Fertitta’s possession and there’s no indication that he’ll promote or constitution it. As he has usually stated, he has no intention of letting anybody however household relaxation their heads on Boardwalk pillows. We’d guess that deep-pocketed Fertitta will maintain the smaller yacht within the Caribbean the place the bigger yacht would have issue maneuvering by means of the waters there.
Within the world of superyachts, Boardwalk is a critical contender however falls wanting the ridiculously enormous mega yachts corresponding to Dallas Cowboys proprietor Jerry Jones’ Bravo Eugenia, which measures 356 ft, or the 351-foot Benetti Lana, which charters for $1.9 million per week.
