While many a thought turns to chocolates, flowers, and jewelry today, we’re thinking about superyachts. Love-themed superyachts, to be more specific. After all, speak with any yacht owner even for a few minutes, and you’ll hear plenty of terms of endearment. They love their yachts, the water, the cruising lifestyle, and everything that comes with it. So, what could be more suitable than turning our attention to yachts named in honor of this most passionate of emotions?
In alphabetical order, here are four love-themed superyachts, along with one honorable mention.
1. Abbracci. What could be more romantic than a yacht whose name translates to “kiss” from Italian? Originally delivered by Christensen Shipyards in 1997, Abbracci underwent a complete refit, with every last wood panel stripped out, in 2012. Simultaneously, she gained more space on her upper deck, especially for a more generous skylounge. The 155-foot (47.2-meter) Abbracci may not hold onto her love-themed superyacht signage much longer, however, since she sold last month. Here’s hoping, though, the current owner keeps the name.
2. In Love. In Love (at top) makes the connection abundantly clear. She’s a custom 117-foot (35.6-meter) ketch, delivered about four years ago. Su Marine, a Turkish shipyard, constructed her of mahogany. If that tugs at your heartstrings, you’re in luck. In Love is both for charter and for sale. She accommodates eight guests.
3. Kiss. In a list of love-themed superyachts, you knew “kiss” was going to be included sooner or later. Delivered by Feadship in 2015, Kiss (above) suitably launched on Valentine’s Day that same year. LOA: 152’2” (46.4 meters). You can’t miss her, due to a black-metallic hull, silver-metallic superstructure, and red bootstripe. The owners have quite a lovely suite, on the same deck as the wheelhouse.
4. Royal Romance. At 303’5” (92.5 meters), Royal Romance is certainly the largest love-themed superyacht on our list. Feadship delivered her in 2015, with most of the facts about her still remaining confidential. However, she does have one hard-to-miss feature on deck. It’s a pool, and a significant-size one at that. Measuring 13 feet (four meters) wide, it’s also 39 feet (12 meters) long. In addition, it’s nearly 4’6” (1.4 meters) deep. As if that’s not enough, a waterfall flows from it down over her transom. It’s quite dramatic at night, thanks to LEDs.
Honorable mention: Quattroelle. What does Quattroelle have to do with love? Everything. The name means “four Ls” in Italian, which the owner says stand for Love, Life, Liberty, and Luxury. Luxury comes into play throughout, such as in the upper-deck lounge. Here, a player Steinway piano keeps guests entertained. But love abounds, starting with one of the Ls so prominently displayed beneath her bow (above), as well as on her mast and elsewhere.
