When music mogul Pharrell Williams and model/designer Helen Lasichanh got married in Miami earlier this month, it was of course a very stylish affair. The reception was held aboard the supercool superyacht, the 122-foot Never Say Never — which costs $112K per week to charter. The vessel, true to its name, would look perfectly in place in a James Bond movie. Pharrell, clad in a tartan tuxedo, and Lasichanh welcomed guests Justin Timberlake, Usher and Busta Rhymes (among many others) aboard the sleek yacht, which was built by Australia’s Oceanfast shipyards in 1985 and completely refit in 2009. The reception was a prelude to the actual ceremony, which took place in the Kampong National Tropical Botanical Gardens in Coconut Grove.
The yacht offers luxury accommodations for eight guests in four en-suite cabins. The interior, designer by Jon Bannenberg, is contemporary in style with Asian influences. Acres of exotic wood paneling are set off by opulent lacquered furniture, while upholstery and carpeting feature warm neutral tones. The expansive decks feature an al fresco dining area, a swim platform, and a sundeck with a BBQ area and Jacuzzi. Though the wedding guests were content with a leisurely cruise, Never Say Never boasts impressive power, with twin 1960hp turbo engines capable of up to 30 knots.
