Yacht equals luxury that equals diamonds, that after all equals to the $ 59,500,000 Luxury Yacht “Diamonds Are Forever”.
The name, that probably makes you remember of the classic James Bond movie starring Sean Connery, Diamonds Are Forever, feets perfect, mainly after you see it’s interior. And by the way, this catchy name just suits perfectly to a luxury item like a yacht.
Now that you understand why the name it’s perfect, meet the responsibilities of this luxury masterpiece – Evan K. Marshall. The Diamonds Are Forever interior has two panoramic master suites and four guest staterooms, a guest elevator to all decks, a full beam sky lounge and vast open and shaded deck spaces. And to become even more unique, it has an additional top deck located above the sun deck, which forms a very private, panoramic deck.
The lower deck guest cabins are a good example of this. The twin and three doubles feature Madrona burr woods, gold and silver leaf, embossed leather bed-heads and marble en suites. When work began on Diamonds Are Forever, the doubles were designed to fit queen-sized beds, but for the US market, in particular, king-sized beds were necessary. They pushed out into the unused space, making more usable room without increasing the gross tonnage, which is measured to the hull side. This practicality was also central to Marshall’s décor. It may be rich and complex, but it doesn’t get in the way.
The central main-deck foyer is spectacular but its elements are firmly built in. The onyx floor is centered with a hand-beaten glass inlay by Dutch company Marieux. Mounted in chrome frames are paintings of sultry women, their jewelry highlighted with diamanté studs, while fixed side-tables support Jeanette Staluppi’s Erte sculptures.
A unique Yacht, Diamonds are Forever was sold by Worth Avenue Yachts for the amount of $ 59,500,000 in December of 2013. The superyacht has 61 meters and was built at the state-of-the-art Benetti shipyard in Livorno, resulting in a yacht with a superb layout and sophisticated styling.
The “Diamonds Are Forever” may be forever a landmark on luxury yacht design.
