Awesome Superyachts: Nero

Its been a while, but I thought I would continue my little series on impressive superyachts. This is one that is very different to the first one (which was the ultra modern SeaForceOne). The absolutely beautiful Nero is however not old. Just not modern. She is in fact brand new, having been constructed in 2008 […]

Awesome Superyacht: SeaForceOne

With summer behind us, I feel its only fair to keep spirits up with a little series about superyachts. Of course I have written here before about, amongst other things, Mukesh Ambani’s yacht. But lets focus on some more. The first is called Sea Force 1. She is owned by a London banker who wanted […]

These items in particular interested me: The world’s most expensive watch […]

The Athena in Sydney Harbour

If you were in Sydney for New Year’s Eve you will not have missed the Athena. Owned by serial entrepreneur perhaps best known for co-founding Netscape, Jim Clarke, the Athena is a clipper-bowed 3 masted Gaff Rigged Schooner (apparently, at least according to this wikipedia entry). There are few man made things that can hold their own […]

Depp’s Yacht, and why its called VAJOLIROJA

As a hollywood legend, its not surprising that Johnny Depp has a pretty rock’n’roll yacht. But its the name of his boat that is especially cool. Take the first letters of each of the names of his family. Of course his wife is Vanessa Paradis, (“Va”), himself (“Jo”), his daughter Lily Rose (“LiRo”) and son […]
