Billionaires Mega Yacht Attessa IV Docked in Miami
Miami has been a destination to over 13 millions visitors every year.
Late last month, we were visited by the super yacht Atessa IV, a 337-foot mega-yacht owned by Dennis Washington. Built in 1998, the super yacht has gone through a total redesign and renovation since its purchase in 2007, featuring helipad, a fifth-floor sky lounge and bar, a grand staircase flanked by Henry Moore sculptures, a lit pool and deck that includes a spa, and a completely redone engine room. Four rooms were transformed into a gym, a spa, and a massage room.
The Super yacht was moored at the Miami Bayfront Park adjacent to the American Airlines Arena. There aren’t many choices today for docking a ship of this size other than the Port of Miami in between the cranes.
There is a lot going on in Miami lately, new projects are changing the scene of this vibrant city, yet to debut with super luxury amenities and services cater to the super wealth. We are not talking just about building luxury condominiums but creating a whole infrastructure for a sustainable future.
According to the Knight Frank Report (2015) Miami ranked 6th as a destination for High Net Worth Individuals, and among the many planned projects we have a super yacht Marina underway, Island Gardens.
The Island Garden is an audacious project that will feature a super yacht marina on its 1st phase scheduled for completion late 2015, followed by 2 hotels, world class retail and restaurants for completion late 2017.
The Deep Harbor at Island Gardens will feature 5,000 liner feet of capacity, accommodating an average of 50 yachts stretching up to 550 feet with drafts between 18-25 feet deep. The Marina will include in slip fueling, customs and immigration clearance, 24 hours concierge and dock masters and much more.
According to the developer Flagstone Property Group, the project is scheduled for completion late 2015 for the Miami Boat Show, introducing a new show the Superyacht Miami by Show Management catered exclusively to SuperYachts. The project will contribute to a great economic impact of 98.1 million in sales tax during the first three years.
