A hedge fund billionaire striving for even greater decadence has listed his old megayacht for sale.
Apparently not satisfied with his sprawling mansion at sea, British banker Michael Platt has put his 246-foot ship Arrow up for sale to the tune of $150.66 million. The listing comes as the 54-year-old financier collaborates on an even bigger boat with the Dutch shipyard Feadship. According to a source familiar with the man’s yacht holdings, the next vessel will be 360 feet long, or 51 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty. Meanwhile, the comparatively plebeian Arrow will soon be on display at the Palm Beach International Boat Show. Although diminutive in comparison to the beast of a boat the UK’s second-richest person has in the works, Arrow will be the largest yacht on display at the show.
The vessel has six staterooms, a movie theater, a massage room and a bar-equipped sky lounge. There’s a gym, an elevator, a sun deck with a hot tub and “sunbathing areas” aplenty — and an owner’s suite with an office and dressing room. Oh, also, there’s a beach club with two foldable balconies, another bar, a sauna, a dive store and a “toy area.” In addition to upgrading from the excessive luxury of his current seafaring situation, Platt is also planning on making his living quarters even more unfathomably deluxe.
