Feadship’s 302-foot Aquarius is one of those yachts that literally takes your breath away. The profile by Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design has an almost retro look with the sleek, pointed hull, but it also has elements of modern design, with through-hull windows and upper decks that look as if they’re floating above full-length panels of glass. The owner, a serial yacht owner and art lover, wanted Aquarius to be awash in as much natural light as possible—partly to create a bright environment but also to show off his private collection.
The owner’s suite has his-and-her bathrooms, a media room, and a private balcony, and the five other guest suites were built to exacting specifications. The owner also made sure his 31 crew members would be comfortably housed in 14 crew cabins, a captain’s stateroom, and two cabins for the owner’s staff.
