Lucia Ferigutti Lucia is BOAT International’s acting luxury editor, and she decamped from Italy to Madrid this spring to spy on the stylish residents of Salamanca from outdoor cafés. She timed her visit to coincide with the reopening of the Mandarin Oriental Ritz (page 59). What impressed you most about the Mandarin Oriental Ritz? How much it feels embedded in the history and culture of the city – the design is a nod to the neighbouring El Retiro Park and the Prado Museum. And you can still feel the buzz of glamorous guests from the past If you had to spend lockdown at a hotel, which would you choose? The Metropol in Moscow. I’ve never been, but in Amor Towles’s novel A Gentleman In Moscow, Count Alexander Rostov makes endless interesting encounters while being confined…

one step closer

Revealing the latest news, trends and tech New construction images show the first 58-metre SeaXplorer taking shape at Damen Yachting in the Netherlands. Due for delivery in 2022, the SeaXplorer 58 will be equipped for polar navigation thanks to an Ice Class hull and was commissioned by an owner keen to undertake globe-trotting exploration, the yard says. Azure Yacht Design has penned the robust exterior, while Design Unlimited was chosen by the owner to design the “intriguing” interior, which will “celebrate the spirit of exploration”. It comes as Damen Yachting revealed the largest SeaXplorer model yet – the SeaXplorer 105. Complete with a weathertight double helicopter hangar, the luxury expedition yacht will carry a 13-metre chase boat and four tenders measuring between eight and 12 metres. damenyachting.com…

The Rolling Stones were in good spirits when hosting a press conference on board a yacht in New York Harbour, on the eve of their 1966 American tour – despite the fact Mick Jagger had collapsed and been hospitalised with “nervous exhaustion” just two weeks before. The US jaunt, to promote their fourth album Aftermath (their sixth in the States), kicked off the following day with a concert at the Manning Bowl in the city of Lynn, Massachusetts. Arrangements were significantly lower-key than later Stones shows: tickets cost between $3 and $5 (compared to about £450 for a standing ticket at their 2018 UK tour – a price that reportedly outraged the band) and the support was a Battle of the Bands between two local groups. Charlie Watts, Keith Richards,…

july news

Lürssen downsizes with the 13800 The launch of 55-metre custom superyacht Project 13800 marks a milestone moment for German yard Lürssen, known for the very largest yachts, in its efforts to establish itself in the smaller 55- to 75-metre size bracket. The Bannenberg & Rowell-designed superyacht hit the water exactly three years after it was commissioned by the owner. Described as “truly bespoke” by the yard, the yacht is influenced by the 1973 Lürssen Carinthia VI, designed by Jon Bannenberg. The designer’s son and Bannenberg & Rowell co-founder Dickie Bannenberg says: “Every centimetre of interior and exterior space usage had to be presented, discussed and agreed with the owners, and this has led to many inspiring discussions.” The launch comes alongside news that the German yard has sold its first superyacht…
