You may have thought all superyachts were created equal. But according to one designer, there is a gap in the market for vessels targeted at the fairer sex.
In case the world's most powerful women don't want to splash out on the regular millionaires' toys on the market, luxury designer Lidia Bersani has created the first luxury mega yacht with a female in mind.
The sleek white and gold yacht, measuring an impressive 262ft, is targeted at female buyers and is designed using crystal, gold, fur and flowers. It is even named La Belle, which translates as 'the beauty'.
The master cabin is unsurprisingly lavish with a round king size double bed and baldachin and its own terrace with panoramic views
The 80-metre superyacht is not for the faint hearted, or Laura Ashley lovers. It's a riot of opulent gold mosaics, mother of pearl, Swarovski crystal chandeliers, gemstones, onyx and bespoke wooden furniture.
The boat's design revolves around soft edges, smooth lines, floral patterns and a large amount of glass, crystal and bright white.
Lidia Bersani's website says of La Belle: TheYacht is in distinctive Bersani Style, romantic and warm. The colors in white, ivory and gold are predominant. Interior is full of opulent and comfortable elements.'
The vessel could comfortably sleep 12 guests in six deluxe cabins.
If you get bored of sunning yourself on deck there are a few lounges, dining places and facilities for live music on board
