When the ultra-rich splash out on a new superyacht, they expect it to come with all the latest accessories. And that’s exactly what they get with the 223ft Explorer, which comes with its own helipad, infinity pool and plenty for space for supercar and jetski storage.
With space for 12 lucky guests on board, the concept yacht from British yacht designer Tony Castro is the ultimate toy for the extremely wealthy and has been dubbed the ‘Range Rover of the seas’.
It was designed to withstand any weather conditions and is sturdy enough to circumnavigate the globe – all while looking incredibly stylish, of course. When it comes to transporting all those extras any cruising millionaire needs to hand, there’s plenty of space for all of them.
The company explains: ‘With a large carrying capacity for toys and tenders, she is capable of carrying a helicopter in a climate controlled garage, twin limo tenders, car, submarine, jetskis, paddleboards and a variety of inflatables water toys.’
But of course, the life of the ultra-wealthy comes at a cost. According to Tony Castro Design, the superyacht costs approximately 40million euros (around £29million/$43million) to build, which means it is likely to cost even more to purchase.
While the yacht has been designed with ‘rugged utilitarian-looking aesthetics’, it is actually a sumptuous retreat at sea. For the 12 guests, there is space on the yacht for 15 crew, ensuring there is nothing always someone on hand to make sure the journey goes smoohtly.
The designers explain: ‘Her unique layout holds a full beam enclosed observation deck with opening roof, cinema, beach club, sauna, scuba diving pool, gymnasium, pool, wine cellar and ample space to accommodate a total of 12 guests.’
And of course, there are all the other luxurious finishing touches you would expect to find on board. The guests of honour can enjoy accommodation in the Master Cabin or VIP suite, while others can choose between four other double guest cabins.
There are also plenty of ‘terrace’ area, with sunloungers, giving the impression of sitting on the beach as the water laps the sands. In reality, the wooden areas just out into the sea with ladders down so guests can take a dip to cool off whenever they wish.
And the entire design is offset with panoramic windows offering views across the ocean.
