It typically takes several years to commission, design and build a mansion-sized yacht, and Hollywood heavy hitter Steven Spielberg took delivery of his custom-crafted 282-foot-long Seven Seas in 2010. Now, after a decade of ownership, not to mention reports dating to 2015 that he’d commissioned an even bigger boat, Spielberg’s Seven Seas is available with a breathtaking asking price of €131 million, about US$160 million at today’s rates.
According to online marketing materials, Seven Seas was built to the owner’s exacting specifications by the Dutch shipyard Oceanco with interior design and décor by Nuvolari & Lenard and Molly Isaksen. The standard set up for the four-deck, Beverly Hills mansion-sized behemoth accommodates 15-20 people in seven (and potentially nine) cabins over four decks. Specifications indicate the navy-blue-hulled boat, which is nearly 47-feet wide, has a maximum speed of 19.5 knots (about 22 mph) and a crew of 28, carries 45,000 gallons of fresh water and 77,000 gallons of fuel that at a cruising speed of 15 knots allow it a range of 5,200 miles, more than enough for a transatlantic crossing.
