She was originally commissioned by a Saudi Arabian as a replacement for Coral Island. He loved the finished product but, when made an offer that was too good to refuse, sold her to the Russian tycoon Roman Abramovich. David Geffen bought her in May 2011. The yacht is the work of two internationally known designers: Tim Heywood, who drew the superstructure and working areas, and Terence Disdale, who created an interior that revels in the informal atmosphere of a beachside villa. This yacht has everything: two helicopter pads, a swimming pool with artificial current, a spa pool, and an owner’s suite with 180-degree panoramic views that opens to a private deck. The quality of the engineering is stunning, with many of the systems, including the bowthruster, being provided with a back-up, while the control of all propulsion units is united in a ‘Lipstick’ that allows a single joystick to precisely manoeuvre the yacht. The vessel is managed by 46 crew, including seven engineers and five personal staff.
