If you have half a million surplus why not spend it on a boat that used to be owned by a famous power couple?
The newly named Illusion Yacht is fast and economical, reaching a speed of 28 knots while burning 20% less fuel than other ships of similar dimensions, thanks to its innovative hull design. In addition, it has an incredible range of 4,200 nautical miles, making it perfect for environmentally conscious sightseeing in remote islands, in the intimate company of family and friends.
Built in 2013 by the Heesen Shipyard, then called the Galactica Star, this yacht was the first to incorporate a new hull shape that was the work of Van Oossanen Naval Architects. Two years after that, the yacht found itself in the possession of Beyonce and Jay Zie, and now it has a new owner, a new look and design and can be rented.
The original interior of the yacht, with relatively small volume, the work of British design firm Bannenberg & Rowel, has remained almost completely unchanged. Its general aesthetics are quite full, using polished steel, leather, Macassar ebony and a large amount of glass. A fair amount of daylight is pouring into the interior, but not every guest may like it.
As for the exterior, there is a 114-square-foot sun deck with two lodges and a perfectly equipped bar next to the large jacuzzi. Thanks to special screens that are painted with a transparent layer of color, you can enjoy your yacht even on the windiest days, without distraction. The yacht comes with 13 crew members who will take care of all your needs, while the large loggia at the rear transforms into a button helicopter at the touch of a button.
An air-conditioned beach club, swim platform and sea terrace will entertain all guests of this yacht, which can total 12. If you do not want to swim in the sea, there is a glass-bottomed pool on the main deck, as an attractive alternative.
The only downside to this yacht is the small number of cabins – there are only six. As for the rental price, this yacht will cost you $434,000 a week, excluding taxes and other costs.
