The largest privately owned residential yacht on Earth, The World, circumnavigates the globe every two to three years following an itinerary defined by the residents themselves, combining a luxury lifestyle with world travel. With 165 residences, this one-of-a-kind ship brings together a diverse group of people who share a passion for culture, history and global exploration. Now the opportunity to join this epic voyage has come along with the luxury yacht’s Ocean Penthouse hitting the market.
The 4,184-sq-ft penthouse commands a forward position in the ship’s highest residential space, Deck 11. Having undergone a complete redesign and renovation before being listed, the residence has two interconnecting living areas, five bedrooms, a media room, and six and a half bathrooms. At the entrance you’re met by a hallway with a water jet-cut marble Arabesque floor, which leads through to the light-filled living area complete with Macassar ebony bar and floor-to-ceiling windows opening out onto the veranda; wrapped around the ship’s bow, this veranda provides the ideal space for entertaining.
Of the five bedrooms, three are master suites with direct access to the veranda, while the other two come with twin beds. Italian design accents and custom furnishings feature throughout, Macassar ebony cabinets and state-of-the-art amenities fill the kitchen, and a separate media room comes with English sycamore cabinets with backlit onyx counter tops.
Elsewhere on the ship you can dine at any one of its six restaurants; take to the on-board putting greens, golf simulator and PGA Pro, fitness center and full-size tennis court (the only one at sea), swim laps in one of the two pools, and relax in the 7,000-sq-ft spa. In addition to hosting guest speakers as a part of its Nobel Laureate Lecture Series, too, the ship has a library, cinema and games room.
The Ocean Penthouse is one of a number of residences available, which range from $2m to $20m with additional annual ownership fees. Find out more by going over to aboardtheworld.com.
