It’s quite a responsibility to name a yacht. You could go for a Lady Something or Other to help smuggle the decision to spend a fortune on a yacht past your long-suffering partner, or mash your kids’ names together or even pull something from classical literature. Or you could choose, in the mould of the owner of this month’s cover boat, to name your gleaming new superyacht after your dog. It’s not as uncommon as you might think. The 62-metre Amels Madame Kate is named after a Maltese – I think I even recall seeing a large painting of the yacht’s namesake in one of the saloons – and the 64-metre Hakvoort Scout takes her name from one of the owners’ beloved rescues. I am honoured to say I have met said dog. He was very nice. King Benji must be a pretty special pooch, too. The new 47-metre Dunya that has taken his name is a beautiful blend of rugged lines and thoughtful, tactile interior. The owner, still in his forties, is typical of yachting’s adventurous new generation. "The goal was to make something that was focused on doing instead of sitting. I go crazy sitting around," he tells us on page 74.
He’s loaded the boat up with every conceivable toy to banish boredom. That big aft deck is a true playground, or even dog park. Following the theme, I would have to name my superyacht Chewie, after my cockapoo named in tribute to the great, snuffling Wookie in Star Wars. Actually, I’m not sure that would look so great on the transom. Lady Lia it is.
