The first thing you notice about superyacht EXCELLENCE from a distance is the heavily reversed axe bow, then, seconds later, the glass, gleaming golden in the afternoon sunshine. Vast spans of mirrored glass wrap around the superstructure and rise an astonishing three tiers high. An engineering and design marvel, EXCELLENCE is finished in silvery-white paint that glints against the sparkling sea.
Stepping aboard, it is clear that this St Barts charter yacht is built for the good life. In the beach club, a skylight beams watery light down from the swimming pool above, and a door leads through to the tender and toy garage, which has a drop-down terrace and its own bar. Up on the aft deck is the shaded counter-current pool with a swim-up bar, while two more Jacuzzis are located on the Owner’s deck private terrace and on the Sundeck. The Upper deck aft is built for entertaining, with a gorgeous dining setting and marvelous breakfast bar and lounge area looking out over the sea.
The interior of EXCELLENCE is a contemporary masterpiece. The three tiers of exterior glass utterly transform the yacht’s interior, drenching the upper levels in natural light and endless sea views. The design centerpiece is the staggering triple-height atrium, through which a glass elevator rises silently, while the sky lounge feels like an observatory, with its wraparound floor-to-ceiling windows.
The decor has been chosen with a delicate hand. Pale wood, ivory carpets, tan leather, and honey-toned marble complement the light-filled spaces perfectly, while a faint touch of whimsy shows through in the owner’s choice of Cadillac-inspired cream couches with metal grille detailing, and colorful Art Deco pieces including a Mickey Mouse statue.
The interior is supremely versatile as a charter yacht, with amenities including a tiered cinema, wellness spa with sauna, and gym with expansive sea views. The master suite is located on its own private deck which makes the most of panoramic windows and has its own private lounge and library. The remaining 6 equally-sized staterooms are located on the main deck, and are stylish havens with large windows and mirror-sheen headboards setting the color scheme for each room.
