The iconic PELORUS is an apex superyacht of unquestionable pedigree. She is a 115m (377.3ft) motor yacht of 5,403GT, with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure custom-built to DNV-GL classification and delivered by Lurssen in 2003. She was designed by two of the world’s most celebrated yacht designers with sweeping exterior styling by Tim Heywood and beachside villa interiors by Terence Disdale. Since her delivery, she has had two significant refits the first at Blohm+Voss in 2008, when her second helipad was added, and the second at Kusch Yachts in 2017 during her 15-year survey.
Exterior features include a sun deck with a large pool with counter-current jets and a jacuzzi, bar and open-air dining. There are no fewer than five balconies and sea terraces across main and lower decks, two of which serve the dining room and main saloon and another spectacularly opens up a lower deck guest cabin. There are helipads on the foredeck and forward on the owner’s deck where a companionway leads to a private terrace.
An elevator serves all guest decks from the lower to sun deck for multi-generational access. The upper deck is designed for entertainment. A huge al fresco space aft has open-air dining and lounges beneath the overhang and plenty of versatile deck space aft, as well as walkaround sidedecks for promenading.
Inside is a panoramic sky lounge with a huge bar and generous lounge and huge screen. The space has nightclub lighting and sound systems and rug rolls away to reveal an illuminated dancefloor. Forward is a tiered cinema with world-class audio visual system.
The lower deck aft is devoted to wellness. There is a large, fully equipped gym with its own sea terrace, massage room, treatment room, hair salon, steam room, plunge pool, hydrotherapy spa and relaxation room.
As well as a private terraces forward and aft, the dedicated owner’s deck has a bedroom suite with 200-degree views, a huge bathroom and dressing room, as well as a vast lounge and study aft and a butler’s cabin. There are VIP and guest suites on the upper deck, two guest suites on the main deck and a further three guest suites complete accommodation for 24 guests in 12 cabins. She also sleeps up to 46 crew including seven engineers to ensure reliability and five personal staff for seven-star service.
Her custom tenders, including 11.2m (36.7ft) limo and 8.5m (27.9ft) sport, both by Vikal, are stowed on the main deck aft and launched on horizontal davits through shell doors. She also has storage for her additional tenders, as well as a huge selection of toys and scuba diving equipment.
