Politics in Yachting: John Kerry Causes a Row Aug 10

Massachusetts Senator John Kerry’s love of taxation is fairly robust, even for a Democrat.  He has often expounded upon the virtues of allowing the government to take a larger bite of every private citizen’s paycheck in order to stimulate the economy of our great nation (since individuals cannot be trusted to invest in America or make spending decisions that are in step with government agendas).  And while he has diligently upheld taxation in his own state, he has recently come under attack for dodging the very taxes he supports again and again, in particular, one that centers on yacht ownership.

John Kerry yacht Isabel


That’s right: Senator John Kerry owns a yacht.  “Isabel” is a 76-foot pleasure craft that apparently set Kerry back a whopping $7 million dollars.  Somehow it just doesn’t seem fair that public servants can afford such luxury, but it appears that marrying up and financing a campaign with the assets of a big-brand heiress can get just about anyone elected.  In any case, people are allowed to live as they please, hopefully within their means, and Kerry clearly has the means to purchase a yacht, so more power to him.  And yet, there is a catch.

Celebrity Yacht Vacations This Summer Aug 05

The hottest trend this year in celebrity summer vacays seems to be leading our favorite entertainment, music, and sports stars out to the high seas.  Rather than jet setting to the most exotic or tropical summer locale, celebrities this summer are enjoying the bounty of the sea and the beauty of the world’s coastlines vis a vis renting out luxury yachts.  In true celebrity fashion, not only do they get to cruise around the world’s oceans, but they get to ride in style aboard these super and mega yachts, steaming in the sauna or swimming in the pool as they pull into port.

The Beckham’s, famed soccer star David and lauded singer Victoria “Posh,” have caught the yachting bug.  The couple borrowed designer Roberto Cavalli’s self-named one hundred and thirty-three foot yacht to enjoy their summer, family vacation.  The yacht is estimated to be worth about thirty two million dollars and has also been rented out to other more than familiar faces like Jennifer Lopez, Sharon Stone, and Mariah Carey.  And like the ship’s owner, the ship itself stands out amongst the crowd – painted in iridescent shades of purple, gold, and green.  And the inside matches the outside, furniture decorated in conflicting animal prints and covered with the designer’s monogram.

YachtPlus – a Designer’s Yacht Jul 23

One of the most famous architects of our times, Norman Foster, decided to design an unusual yacht.

It is made for the wealthiest clients that expect luxury and novelties. Units designed by Lord Norman Foster are constructed for the fractional ownership super-yacht company YachtPlus and its most demanding customers.

The appearance of a luxury 41-meter yacht is the result of 15 months efforts. An entity called the 40 ”Signature Series” is to ensure larger areas of decks and much more comfort than any contemporary yacht of comparable size. In the process of design the most emphasis was placed on quality and quantity of space, outdoor terraces, light and views. For example, the path from the largest of the four decks inside the boat leads through translucent staircase, what increases the amount of natural light that reaches the cabins. Glazed interior finished with wood and best materials should ensure the passengers comfort and excellent conditions during their cruise.
