A little under halfway through the yea, and the most expensive yacht of 2023 has sold for just shy of $151 million. The boat, ARROW, was on the market for 10 weeks and was listed through yacht brokerage company Fraser. “With luxurious amenities and state-of-the-art technology, ARROW caters to every indulgence and ensures an unforgettable experience for all guests on board,” reads the superyacht’s listing page.
Spanning 246 feet, the massive ship is the size of three tennis courts. ARROW was built by Dutch shipyard Feadship and delivered in 2020. Designed with a steel and aluminium body, the ship is crafted with hybrid technology “enabling the most efficient use of energy with the lowest possible impact.” London-based studio H2 Yacht Design worked on the interior and exterior designs, creating a mix of contemporary lounge and bedroom spaces and opting for a classic nautical style for the decks. Feadship de Voogt was responsible for the naval architecture.
Complete with six staterooms, the ship can accommodate 12 guests and 19 crew. Onboard, yachters will find a collection of luxury amenities including a hot tub, fully equipped gym, and cinema. The beach club, a lounge and swim platform area, is completed with a bar, sauna, massage room, dive store, and toy area. Boasting expansive glass bulwarks, the yacht offers sea views from all sides.
ARROW was rumored to belong to Michael Platt, an investor and founder of BlueCrest Capital Management. Michael Tabor and Brandon Kummer of Kitson Yachts represented the buyer of the most expensive yacht of 2023, though they were not disclosed.
