The inside of the pleasure craft is covered in marble and gold, and it has a helipad and an incredibly luxurious owner’s suite. It would be perfect for a billionaire with a lot of money.
The Vice President of Equatorial Guinea, Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, has put his beautiful 296-foot yacht, Ice, up for sale. The Russian oligarch Suleiman Kerimov used to own the eco-explorer ship that was made by Lurssen. The structure of Ice, which has won a lot of awards, is what makes it stand out. The first yacht to use Azipod drive units instead of shafted diesel was the eco-explorer. Because of this, the ship has very low emissions and vibrations, which was a must for Augusto Perfetti, the Italian billionaire who paid for it. Tim Heywood did a lot to make the Ice Motoryacht famous.
On the other hand, renowned designer Terence Disdale used neutral materials like limestone to add a minimalist design language. Boat International says that the five bathtubs on the ice luxury vessel were carved out of such big solid blocks that the whole yacht was built around them. Instead of being in front, where it usually is, the helipad is behind the ship, which is different from how it usually is. Ice has seven staterooms where 14 people can sleep in comfort.
The 2005 Lurssen yacht has 27 crew members who take care of its maintenance. They have done a great job because 18 years later, it still looks great and is for sale for $127 million.
