Did you know that Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana of Dolce and Gabbana fame owned a yacht? The Regina d’Italia II, formerly known as the Regina d’Italia was recently sold. Although the asking price was €18 million, it was sold at a reduced price of €13.5 million via Edmiston and Torrance Yachts.
The yacht is exquisitely designed. It has three decks, several lounging areas, and 360 views. The interiors are inspired by high fashion living, and combine aspects of minimalism as well as luxury. They have been designed by Lazzarini Pickering Architetti. The décor is embedded with rubies and sapphires taps, gold veined marble floors and animalistic prints prevailing as a texture. All the precious materials on-board are genuine, whether gold, mink or crocodile skin.
The owner’s suite has a large dressing room, private gym, a VIP stateroom, two double staterooms and two twin cabins. Each of the four guest bedrooms is named after exotic animals: giraffe, rhinoceros, elephant and crocodile. The yacht is made to ideally host 12 people.
The yacht features top speed of 18 knots and cruises comfortably at 15 knots at the range of 4600 nautical miles, with the power of two Caterpillars of 2448 HP each. It also has a zero speed stabilization system which reduces roll motion effect. We are not sure who bought the yacht, but we’re guessing the new owners are going to have a smooth and exquisite ride.
