Just like her name says, Diamonds Are Forever is a luxury yacht, inspired by James Bond. Actually, its owner Mr. John Staluppi, who is a big fan of James Bond, christened yacht and made it fit for 007 agent himself. This 61m (200-foot) long Benetti Custom motor yacht, that was built last year,
is now available for chartering!
This superyacht has four decks (complete with an elevator) and can accommodate up to 12 charter guests in 6 cabins, formed by 4 guest cabins (3 doubles and 1 single) located on the lower deck, and 2 full beam panoramic master staterooms (one with an office and both with dressing areas and walk-in closets) forward on the upper deck, both with a 180° view sea view. There are also a full sky lounge, various shaded deck spaces, and an additional sun deck that offers an unparallel view and a large Jacuzzi overlooking a raised dining area and marble topped wet bar with a television. The main deck has a fitness room, sauna, and beauty parlor, which can all be opened to guests or sectioned off to be more VIP exclusive.
Evan K. Marshall/Usonia V, a London based interior specialist who has already designed several yacht interiors for Mr. and Mrs. Staluppi, was in charge for the interior decor and completely custom furnishings on the yacht. Marshall has used cream and white, quality furnishings, Italian marble, onyx, Madrona burlwood, gold and silver leaf, mother of pearl and Marieux crystal, with great attention paid to every detail to achieve maximum visual impact. If we try to describe her beauty in detail, it would take a couple of hours.
Diamonds Are Forever yacht has a maximum speed of 16 knots, a cruising speed of 15 knots and an oceanic range of 4800 nautical miles at 12 knots.
And now, the most important thing: Diamonds Are Forever is available for chartering with the price tag of 329,373Euro ($403,656) – 364,545Euro ($446,760) per week in the summer, when the yacht will take you on a route around the Mediterranean, stopping at places like Italy, France, Croatia, Spain, Montenegro, and Turkey.
