the pursuit of exellence

FOR ALL ITS LUXURIOUS APPOINTMENTS AND DESIGN FLOURISHES, EXCELLENCE EVOKES ELEGANCE ABOVE ALL. AND FULLY LIVES UP TO ITS NAME. Self-made billionaire Herb Chambers, known for the highend car dealerships throughout New England that have made his name a household word, is one of the great American success stories. He’s also one of the world’s most renowned commissioners of luxury yachts, having just launched his sixth vessel christened Excellence, which has immediately taken its place on the list of the world’s most beautiful superyachts. Built by Abeking & Rasmussen, the legendary shipyard founded in 1907 on the banks of Germany’s Weser river, the 263-ft. craft is immediately recognisable thanks to its slightly intimidating reverse bow; but any hint of menace is offset by massive, multi-level windows that reflect the sea and the…

assault of the falcon

Is your private jet starting to feel like a confined narrow tube with wings? Dassault may have a better option in the form of their Falcon 6X ultra-wide jet. Launched recently at the aviation convention EBACE in Geneva, the 6X claims to have the most spacious cabin in business aviation — allowing you to stretch your legs as far as your portfolio. At 12 metres long, two metres high and 2.58 metres wide, the twin-jet beats out its main rival, the Gulfstream G500 in a measuring contest. Such size allows up to 16 passengers to explore three distinct spaces: a lounge, an office and a kitchen. Now as the result of clientele feedback, the cabin gains a significant amount of natural light thanks to 29 adult size windows, including a skylight…

“A CHALLENGE FOR THOSE WHO GO, A DREAM FOR THOSE LEFT BEHIND.” It’s 1977. French motorcycle racer Thierry Sabine is missing in action in the Libyan desert on the Abidjan-Nice Rally. “I realise that my situation is uncomfortable, difficult,” Sabine later wrote. “Two days later I have no compass or clock, which broke down in a fall while trying to find the lost route. It is now two days and two nights that I am lost in the desert, under a sun that begins to make me lose my mind. The total absence of shadow is an oppressive sensation, which engenders a feeling similar to that of claustrophobia. Then I decide to get away from my bike. In socks and sucking the stones to give me saliva, I realise my life…

paris-dakar days

The early days of the Paris-Dakar were for adventurers. Just ask famed photographer Gilles Bensimon, Maxim’s own Special Creative Adviser. He was there for its anarchic beginning. Before corporate sponsorship, back when it was a race against yourself, the elements, and the locals. Hoping the machinery you had personally wrenched together with your team stood up to the abuse. And that you didn’t break down, get lost, or get murdered en route. Gilles entered the race three times, and finished once. As we’ve perhaps made abundantly clear these races were not for wimps. He went straight from the finish to a plane and back to France. He left his bike. He left his kit. He left everyone. No party. No whooping it up. Just survival. He’d used some money inherited from his…
