American Idol Icon Brings Chic to Yachting

Posted on

When it comes to a keen sense for talent, creativity and style, few can argue with Simon Cowell’s success.  The television and music industry mogul has helped launch the careers of dozens of entertainers, while his brutal honesty has made him a household name in America.

Amazingly, his sense of style and panache extends far beyond the entertainment industry, into the realm of the world’s newest and largest luxury yachts, as witnessed by Cowell’s own show-winning vessel, motor yacht SLIPSTREAM.

We first introduced you to American Idol Simon Cowell motor yacht  SLIPSTREAM at the 2009 Genoa yacht show. Built  by France’s CMN Shipyard, their largest yacht to date, Simon Cowell’s yacht SLIPSTREAM is one of the chicest crafts on the water.

Cowell’s yacht décor is a super-stylish mélange of modern and nautical, taking full advantage of the yacht’s panoramic windows. The vessel’s interiors are finished in a neo-Art Deco style combining dark ebony joinery and red leather paneling. The sun-deck is fitted with a spa, sun-pads, bar with BBQ, and al fresco dining area, and the yacht comes equipped with a cutting-edge home entertainment system including video on demand and a satellite communications center.

Like her owner, most often seen wearing a crisp, black T-shirt, the yacht presents a dramatic appearance with her gleaming black hull.

With room to accommodate up to 14 Guests, and 200 square meters of outdoor decks, expect to see this vessel hosting fellow entertainers and celebrities at events like the upcoming Cannes Film Festival 2011 and the Monaco Grand Prix.

Cowell and his U.K.-based production company, SYCO, produces the BAFTA Award-winning show, The X Factor, which has topped the charts in England.  He also produces and judges Britain’s Got Talent.  Of course, here in the states he is best known for starring in American Idol for 9 seasons, and for serving as executive-producer of America’s Got Talent.

In a strange twist, the man who professionally judges style and talent saw his beloved superyacht placed before a jury of judges.  In October 2010, Cowell’s yacht won the prestigious ShowBoats Design Award for Best Exterior Design & Styling.

Prices onboard Simon Cowell’s yacht SLIPSTREAM  begin at 315,000 Euros per week.  To reserve prime yacht charter season dates in 2011, please click https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/ and contact us now.

CLOUD 9 WINS 2 AWARDS

We are pleased to announce CMN Yacht CLOUD 9 received two trophies during the recent ShowBoats Design Awards.

The 60-meter superyacht and her designer Andrew Winch took two tropies. The first, the award for Best Exterior Design & Styling Award – Motor Yachts.  The second, for Best Interior Recreational Area.

THE CEREMONY

The awards ceremony took place in October at the exclusive Mar A Lago Club.  Specifically, ikt is Donald Trump’s private club in Palm Beach, Florida.  The awards are sponsored by ShowBoats International,

A two-day Superyacht Design Symposium was held.  After the symposium, 350 guests gathered for an evening of cocktails, a gala dinner, and anAwards ceremony honoring the industry’s creative talents.  Those awarded specifically  include yacht architects, designers, stylists, craftsmen, and innovators in yacht technologies.

ABOUT CLOUD 9

Cloud 9 catches the attention of the judges for her clean, simple, chiseled elegance.  She is new to the yacht charter market, with just two Mediterranean seasons under her chartering belt.  Judges remark upon her well laid-out decks.  The decks facilitate ease of movement.  Her seamless windows, port and starboard, reflect the sky and sea.

HER LAYOUT

Cloud 9’s aft bridge deck has a huge salon with cinema.  It also offers informal indoor/outdoor dining area.  Judges find an ingenious solution for the 11 foot cinema screen, for instance, the way it rolls into the back of the daybed.  They note that the open-plan style nevertheless allows for more intimate groupings.  Space includes the games table, sofa, daybed, and on the aft deck.

 

RATE AND YACHT CHARTER DESTINATION

CLOUD 9 is available for charter in the Indian Ocean.  Her rate is Euro  €315,000 per week, plus all expenses.
