Parades, fireworks, and of course plenty of flags flying high all herald Independence Day celebrations here in the United States. We’ve celebrated it here on our website over the years, too, focusing on patriotic-themed megayachts, for instance. This time around, though, we thought it would be fun to take a look at red, white, and blue superyachts. While they’re not necessarily all American-owned, they do show their colors with pride.
You can’t help but smile upon seeing the bold red accents popping against the primarily white exterior of Forever One. They rim her plumb bow, they’re at her waterline, and they outline other parts of her styling. However, they especially frame her beach club when the transom opens. Her capacious 1,074-gross-ton volume looks and feels all the more voluminous with a generally white interior, though once again bold reds (and some blues) catch the eye.
If you want red, white, and blue superyachts, it’s hard to beat Ipanema (above). The 161-footer (49.2-meter) makes an audacious statement on behalf of a sports-car and motorbike enthusiast. Throughout her interior, further red appears. For instance, the owner has red flames, in bas relief, in his en suite bath.
THE BIG BLUE
A fun-loving family makes the most of cruising this big blue marble of ours aboard The Big Blue (above). They’ve taken their 138-footer (42-meter) to more countries in the South Pacific than most owners visit in a lifetime.
Yes, thousands of yachts are white, but we picked her to be among our red, white, and blue superyachts because of her name. Additionally, we picked her because she’s unlike pretty much any other private yacht. White Rabbit is the world’s largest trimaran, just shy of 276 feet (84 meters) LOA.
WHITE ROSE OF DRACHS
Yet another yacht on our list due to her name and fame. A British couple has owned her since delivery in 2004. Yet, she looks like she stepped out of the past, with a canoe stern. The couple purposely commissioned this 213-footer (65-meter) to keep the multiple generations of their family together. Amazingly, they count nearly two dozen children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
