Puerto Vallarta is a world class destination and has always lured international celebrities from different scenes, who come here to enjoy a destination with a true Mexican taste. Recently, Puerto Vallarta has played host to two magnificent private yachts, whose dimensions and beauty can’t go unnoticed to anyone going by the port. They are without any doubt the largest visitors we have had in recent years.
The fabulous super yacht Cloudbreak is an explorer yacht 73.5 meters in length. It was built in 2016 by the German firm Abeking and Rasmussen. Its military style design is a creation byluxury yacht architect Espen Øino, and the subtly elegant interiors were created by Parisian interior designer Christina Liaigre.
Cloudbreak enjoys a commercially certified helipad, an expansive gym and spa, and its 7 cabins can accommodate up to 12 guests. It has also quarters for the 22-member crew.
If you wish to travel aboard the Cloudbreak, it is offered by SuperYachts Monaco at €750,000 per week.
Our second visitor is the super yacht Atessa IV, a gigantic yacht at 100 m in length, the recipient of the 2011 World Superyacht Award.
In addition to all the luxury it encloses, it is also the protagonist of a very interesting story. Its current owner is not only a lover of luxury yachts, he also likes to rebuild them, as opposed to acquiring new custom ones. It took three and a half years to completely rebuild the Atessa IV, under designers Glade Johnson and the owner’s wife, Phyllis Washington, as well a naval architect Gregory K Marshall.
The reborn Atessa IV sports 2,322 sq m of interior spaces, with capacity for 36 guests and a crew of 21 members.
It enjoys two spas, a huge spa pool and a hanging glass sculpture by artist Dale Chihuly. It also has a helipad and a tender garage. Celebrities such as Bill Gates, who took a family vacation to Belize in 2012, have been spotted aboard the Atessa IV.
The visit from super yachts is something you can expect when in Puerto Vallarta, which is why you are not to miss any opportunity to come over, because Puerto Vallarta will always surprise you!
