The favorite expensive toys of the rich and famous are their luxurious yachts. They love to sail and travel the world on them. Some of the expensive yachts are in the possession of world famous designers.
Giorgio Armani “Main”
Three words that can describe Giorgio Armani are luxury, elegance, and class. And those three words can describe his yacht too. Dark green boat with sharp edges is the place where this famous designer spends his free time. Famous Italian company “Codecasa of Viareggio” was responsible for making this yacht, and it took them 30 months to finish it. The cost of the yacht was $60 million, without the interior.
There can be twelve guests on the “Main” and fourteen crew members. The yacht has six cabins, two saloons, an elevator, spiral staircase, jacuzzi, a gym, and a movie theatre.
Giorgio hosted many parties on this yacht, and it was also used for shooting editorials for world-famous magazines.
Roberto Cavalli “Roberto Cavalli”
Another Italian designer went a step further and named his yacht by his own name, Roberto Cavalli. The interior of this yacht is specific and inspired by Roberto’s brand. There is a lot of animal print, leopard and snake print to be exact. But the best feature of this boat is it’s changing color, it can go from gold to purple. Even Cavalli said he doesn’t know the exact color of his boat.
A world famous company “Baglietto Yachts” made it, and it cost around $40 million.
The boat is famous for some luxurious parties organized by Roberto. But he also rents it for his friends to throw their own parties there.
Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabanna “Regina d’ Italia”
The designer duo, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabanna hired the same company like Giorgio Armani to make their superyacht, “Codecasa of Viareggio”. They also hired a company that is specialized for yacht exterior “Della Role Design” and for the rich gold interior they hired a studio from Rome, “Lazzarini Pickering Architetti”.
The exterior is minimalistic but the interior extravagant, the floor is gold-marble and there are also some details made from gold, decorated with sapphires and rubies. There are four guest rooms, and they all have names from animals: giraffe, elephant, crocodile, and rhinoceros. On this yacht, you can also find a slide, a jacuzzi, and a gym.
They have the boat from 2006, but to this day the exact price of it is unknown.
Valentino Garavani “T.M. Blue One”
One of the first designers to buy himself a yacht was Valentino Garavani. Back in 1988 he hired an Italian company Perini Navi Group to make him a boat. The boat is called “T. M. Blue One”, and the T and M in the name stand for the first letters of the names of his parents, Teresa and Mauro. The exterior is design by Gerhard Gilgenast and the interior by Valentino himself. The interior is luxury but simple because Valentino likes to relax on his boat and not organize parties. The interior may be simple, but the walls are decorated with paintings from Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol.
There are five cabins on the boat and there can be ten passengers, plus eleven crew members. The best thing on the boat is Valentino’s personal chef. A few lucky ones that had a chance to sail with Valentino say that they ate the best pasta and seafood and that the food is always bought from local fishers, no matter where they are in the world.
