Alfa Nero is from £698k per week according to the above page.

Does that make it any more affordable?! hehe

I think I’m right in thinking that doesn’t include the fuel, food, mooring fees if you want to go elsewhere and the tips at the end.

Sometimes this thread is laugh out loud excess. It's much enjoyed, whatever smile
I didn't know men could build such things.

Madness. Stunning though.


Erm... what happens to the water in the pool?
It just sits below the deck. The moving deck has a small gap around it which allows the water to flow past as it rises up on hydraulic rams and locks at deck level. The pool underneath is ready for use once the floor is lowered again.

I like the bit where it says "check availability" like it's going to be booked.

Are these £1m per week yachts actually booked more than once or twice a year?

I’ve installed several raising floor pools in houses. They really are spectacular. Never done one on a boat though!

It’s quite common. The hull below has already been strengthened to carry the weight of water above. The floor has side rollers to carry an6 sideways forces due to the boat movement. They even did the same (non-moving of course) with the Canberra when it was pressed into service as a troop transport during the Falklands war.

An EC145 MAUW is about 4 tons. A typical yacht pool will contain about 40 tons of water, though in reality these pool/deck/helipads are rarely used as such due to the FOD risk from all of the aft open deck area.

A friend has one in her house - the floor rises and it turns an indoor swimming pool into a ballroom. The only issue is that, when you get loads of people bopping, the water underneath starts to slosh around and splashes up through the gaps..

I think I’m right in thinking that doesn’t include the fuel, food, mooring fees if you want to go elsewhere and the tips at the end.
But the reality is these yachts aren’t rented. They are listed such that they can run most costs as a business. Billionaires don’t pay tax wink

When I looked after QUATTROELLE she was $1m US per week to charter. The same family chartered her for 3 weeks in the Caribbean and then 5 weeks in the Med.

The yacht that I have an interest in sleeps 8 and is £40k for the week, all inclusive. Food, Fuel and VAT. Tapping in to the UK Staycation market and running out of Gosport for the 2021 season.

Sure, there are exceptions. Has Flying Fox ever been rented to a legit third party? I'd be surprised if it has given who owns it. Clearly some yachts are rented.

Much as I like the UK - I would rather charter a boat in sunnier climes. £40k a week in Croatia and I would be considering a charter with some friends

If I owned a large yacht there's no way I would be letting anyone else get time on it this summer after a year of lockdown!

Ah! I'm just used with you referring to Black Pear as "yours" per-se, and thought you were referring to her.

Have to admit, the idea of the Black Pearl being £40k for the week blew my mind, briefly hehe
