Photo Courtesy of Danish YachtsDanish Yachts has partnered with Bang & Olufsen to provide the entertainment system for its new superyacht, the AeroCruiser 38 II, which debuted in U.S. waters at the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show.
The 125-foot superyacht, also known as Shooting Star, premiered first, in May, at the 2011 Monaco Boat Snow. The luxury-latent vessel also received two prestigious awards at the 2011 World Yacht Trophy in Cannes in September.
Along with its sleek lines and dazzling decorum, the AeroCruiser 38 II brims with a cache of high-end audio/video products from B&O that electrifies this ultra-modern $26 million watercraft tenfold. There is a BeoVision 10 and a BeoVision 7 LCD television along with a BeoVision 4 plasma TV and a BeoCenter 2 CD/DVD player and BeoLab 3 speakers.
"The qualities that make Bang & Olufsen stand out at home also offer incomparable experiences at sea," said Zean Nielsen, president of Bang & Olufsen America, Inc., in a released statement from the company on its teaming with the Danish yacht builders with the Skagen-based shipyard.
The Espen Oeino-designed, carbon-fiber-composite motor yacht has an entire cabin reserved for its entertainment center. Yacht-interior designers Art-Line is responsible for the lavish insides of this floating mansion. Twin 4,750-horsepower MTU engines enable the Shooting Star to cruise at more than 47 knots.
In an article posted on Yachts International this past October, writer Jill Bobrow wrote, "The yacht is aerodynamic from the get-go and as snazzy as Lamborghini comfortable." Upon further review of that vibrant statement, the metaphor is good! Actually, it is great. For more information on Danish Yachts and Bang & Olufsen, visit DanishYachts.com and Bang-Olufsen.com.
