Boats & Yachts: Slipstream
, the superyacht
Idol creator Simon Cowell spent his
summer lounging around on is now available for charter with rates starting at about $450,000 per week – though if you want the full luxury package including private chef that Cowell opted for, be prepared to pay around twice that amount. The 196-ft. craft can accommodate 12 guests plus a crew of 14 and features mirrors above a giant waterbed, a Jacuzzi, an observation lounge with panoramic views, gym and a sky lounge with a retractable roof.
Launched last year by France’s
CMN Shipyard, their largest yacht to date, Slipstream is one of the chicest craft on the water. The décor is a super-stylish mélange of modern and nautical, taking full advantage of the yacht’s panoramic windows. The yacht’s interiors are finished in a neo-Art Deco style combining dark ebony joinery and red leather paneling. The sun-deck is kitted out with a spa, sun-pads, bar with BBQ and al-fresco dining area, and the yacht comes equipped with a cutting edge home entertainment system including video on demand as well as a satellite communications center.
