Presenting the largest private luxury yacht built in Britain. The yacht is delivered to the UK’s wealthiest woman, Kirsty Bertarelli. The yacht’s maiden voyage to the Caribbean began.
On Friday, March 2, the 90 meter motor yacht VAVA II left. It went from the Devonport shipyard in Plymouth. The 314 foot superyacht (priced at £100 million) commissioned for former Miss UK. Gift recipient is 40 year old Kirsty Bertarelli. Gift giver is her billionaire husband, Ernesto Bertarelli, 46.
What does Bertarelli do? He is a Swiss pharmaceutical tycoon. The man is reputedly worth £6.8 billion. This wealth makes him the 81st richest man in the world. He is the fifth richest man in the UK. He had megayacht VAVA II built by Plymouth-based Pendennis Plus (formerly Devonport Yachts).
The “big white boat” has many features. For instance, a fold-down beach club, and a pool. The pool can can be varied in depth to cater for guest preferences.
Superyacht VAVA II was designed by Redman Whitely Dixon, with interior styling by Remi Tessier. The yacht is built to SOLAS-36 passenger ship standards and will set a new standard in the charter market for 2012 and beyond.
Kirsty Bertarelli (formerly Kirsty Roper) won Miss UK in 1988 when she was 17. She now lives in Switzerland.

From time to time, we like to take a light-hearted look at the world of yachting. Yacht names inspired by love is always a hoot. We still chuckle at the comments we get about our salmon skin blog [Yes, some luxury yacht charter vessels DO use salmon skin for upholstery. NO, it doesn’t smell fishy!!!].
Let’s have some fun and play a game about well-known NFL owners and their personal superyachts. For every correct answer give yourself 1 to 5 points, depending upon the degree of difficulty. At the end of the blog, we’ll tell you what you win based on your total points. Let’s get started!!!
This is a multiple choice question (3 points):
In January, 2020, presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren takes aim and calls out an NFL owner and his purchase of a superyacht. On Twitter she says,
“This billionaire NFL owner just paid $100M for a ‘superyacht’ with its own iMax theater. I’m pretty sure he can pay my new #UltraMillionaireTax to help the millions of yacht-less Americans struggling with student loan debt.”
Is the owner:
The answer is…
True or False (2 points)
Arthur Blank the owner of the Atlanta Falcons built two tenders to shuttle passengers to and from his superyacht. True of False? Blank named the tenders, “Molly” and “Max,” the names of his parents?
The answer is…
Blank actually built three tenders for his superyacht. Here is his explanation as to the names he selected for his tenders:
“I personally, carefully chose the names of our three beautiful custom Compass tenders. ‘Soul Purpose’ reflects how being at sea stirs the soul to dream of peace and happiness and a higher purpose in life. The other two tenders, ‘Max’ and ‘Molly’ were named in honor of my parents, which is my way of revering their memory and keeping them forever close to me wherever I travel. They both loved the ocean. I am sure they would have gotten a kick out of knowing I lent their names to such worthy recipients.”
Match Game (4 points)
This game is fairly straightforward, but easy to get incorrect. Match the name of the yacht owner with the name of the yacht he owns:
Name of Owner Name of Yacht
Daniel Snyder Kismet
Shad Khan Bravo Eugenia
Arthur Blank DreAMBoat
Jerry Jones Lady S
The answer is…
Daniel Snyder owns motor yacht LADY S
Shad Khan owns motor yacht KISMET
Arthur Blank owns motor yacht DreAMBoat
Jerry Jones owns motor yacht BRAVO EUGENIA
Now, let’s take a look at the NFL Owners Superyacht Club.
