If you’ve ever spent a summer somewhere around the beautiful Mediterranean, there’s a small chance that you have seen the Sea Force One. Quite easy to notice, this extraordinary ship measures 177 feet or 54 meters.
It´s really a floating palace, a state-of-the-art fantasy extravaganza, product of the wild imagination of its eccentric genius owner Captain Magic, who gives Johnny Depp a run for his money as self-styled ‘Last King of the Pirates’.
With its attention to detail and astonishing level of luxury, Sea Force One has reduced more than one hard-bitten yachting journalist to a drooling mess of amazed disbelief, grasping for superlatives to relay the sheer awesomeness of this boat; with its 12-foot home cinema, three-tiered waterfall plunge pool, gym with padded leather floor, extensive DVD library, Jacuzzis, DJ setups, sundeck sushi-bar and metallic parrots.
Desgined and built by Luca Dini Design in Italy, SF1 won the 2009 Judged Commendation in the World Superyachts Awards in the 500GT TO 1,299GT (APPROX 50M – 59M) section. SF1 Is able to accommodate 10 guests and 13 in the crew.
Two of the Master Suite’s ‘windows’ double up as hydraulically lowered, glass-bottomed balconies on either side of the vessel, allowing you to sprawl languorously across the gigantic bed with its white seabed sculpture backdrop beneath the quadruple skylights, and gaze out across the open ocean….. Lol.
The onboard art absolutely stunning, the ship is more an art gallery than anything else.
”There are several remarkable pieces, including ones from American sculptress Kiki Smith and Latin American painter José Garcia Cordero, who both takes skulls as their theme. Italian artist Fabrizio Plessi was commissioned to create a sound and vision installation to divide the main deck, a wall of circular watery videos splashing as their light undulates.”
