282′ Megayacht “Seven Seas” visits Ft. Lauderdale

Ft. Lauderdale, FL is certainly the yachting capital of the world.  We have the facilities that can service boats from 16’ to 400’.  Whether you are looking for fuel, crew, insurance, paint work, machinery parts, deep water dockage or are simply looking to buy or sell; chances are you can find whatever service you are need right here in Ft. Lauderdale.  That is why so many yachts, large and small, have made their way to our unique waterways to take advantage of what Ft. Lauderdale has to offer.  Some of the impressive yachts that have spent some time in our fair city include: Paul Allen’s Octopus, Larry Ellison’s Rising Sun, at 289’ the largest privately owned sailboat, Maltese Falcon, and just recently, the largest ever American built Motoryacht at 281’, Cakewalk. Just a few months ago we had another new mega-yacht arrive that is rumored to be owned by a very well know celebrity.  The massive vessel spent a month at Pier 66 Marina just off 17th street.   She is a 282’motoryacht and is named, Seven Seas. She is rumored to owned by Hollywood’s most well know director, Steven Spielberg.  

The yacht was launched early this year and was built by the Dutch shipyard, Oceanco. The vessel was custom built and designed by world renowned designer Nuvolari and Lenard out of Venice, Italy. Seven Seas has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure with a beam of 46’, a draft of almost 13’ and weighs over 2,600 gross tons. She was outfitted with the newest technologies in stabilization and has “zero speed stabilizers” allowing the vessel to remain very stable at the dock or anchor.  This stabilization system also works when the yacht is underway giving her a very comfortable and smooth ride at her cruise at 15 knots, despite the weather or sea conditions.  Her twin MTU engines produce just over 9,000 horsepower giving her the capabilities of reaching 20 knots. Her range at cruise is roughly 5,000 nautical miles.  It is rumored that Spielberg played a large role in the building of the megayacht and it was built to his exact specifications. Despite her size, her dark blue hull and red boot stripe make her one of the sexiest yachts on the water.  The vessel has a very sophisticated interior design scheme with miles of walnut, teak and rosewood.  There are accommodations for 12 guests and quarters for a crew of over 26.  The private owner’s suite is located on the center deck with its own private viewing balcony with Jacuzzi.   

Seven Seas comes equipped with more goodies and water toys than one can imagine. The yacht has a fully equipped gymnasium, a spa and massage room, an indoor cinema and my favorite, a helipad on the bow.  On the aft deck of the vessel there is an infinity pool with a 15’ glass wall that doubles as a cinema screen allowing guests to view movies while swimming or lounging poolside.  I cannot confirm if she is available for charter, but if so, I would estimate the costs per week would be close to $1,000,000.  To build this boat I would imagine Spielberg spent somewhere in the neighborhood of 150,000,000 Euro. 

In other news, led by larger boat sales, the U.S. brokerage market had an upward swing in May.  There was a total of roughly $552,000,000 in total value of boats sold.  This dollar value was up 94% or $267 million from April sales and 67% or $221 million compared to May of 2010.  Although smaller boats sales are still down a bit, boast over 55’ in length increased 39% and the boats that were sold brought in much higher prices.  Year to date, U.S. brokerage sales still remain a bit lower than 2010 as we round the 5 month mark of this year.  However, year to date sales are valued over $100 million more than that of 2010.  As we move further into the summer, hopefully units sold will increase and valuations will continue to increase.
