Madame Gu Yacht
There are many incredible luxury superyachts out there, and Madame Gu is definitely at the top of that list. With its unique design and large size, she is a yacht that stands out from a crowd. Although we do not know the current owner of this superyacht, we do know that it costs around $150 million and was the largest yacht built to date in the Netherlands in 2013. Despite it being built in 2013, this record-breaking superyacht still holds impressive feats to this day.
It took around four years to construct the massive Madame Gu in the Netherlands, but she has been quite active and has been spotted sailing to many different places. It was the fourth vessel in the Feadship XL custom series.
Madame Gu has quite the impressive speed despite her massive size. Her fastest speed is around 4.87 knots above average, while her cruising speed surpasses the average by about 0.59 knots. This great speed is thanks to the MTU that powers Madame Gu. It costs around $15 million to run the ship on an annual basis. The superyacht measures 99 meters long, and can host up to 12 guests and 36 crew members in her 30 cabins. Madame Gu also has a Eurocopter Dauphin AS 365N3, an incredible tender with a price tag of about $9 million.
Designed by Winch Design, Madame Gu has a unique and gorgeous exterior style. The hull is a beautiful shade of blue, and the long bow gives her a special charm. When night comes around, there are multi-colored lights on the ship below the waterline, making Madame Gu stand out with its bold, bright color show. It is guaranteed that everyone will know when Madame Gu is docked at the port. Thanks to Winch Design, who has designed the exteriors of over 20 yachts, this superyacht is a stunning site to see.
Similar to the outside, the inside of Madame Gu was also designed by Winch Designs. Winch Designs has planned out the interiors of over 60 yachts. There are many fun amenities on this vessel, but one of the coolest just might be the enclosed helicopter hangar. It is pretty wild to think that a helicopter can fit on a ship, but that is just how big Madame Gu is. Some other neat features of this superyacht are a gym, a jacuzzi, a helipad, elevator, a beach club that wraps around the ship, and air conditioning. Even when you are on the sea things can get hot, so having air conditioning is a much-needed addition.
There are many aspects to Madame Gu that make her distinctive, but her impressive speed and size have contributed to her breaking numerous records. Sometimes it is good to break from the industry standard and create your own thing. Madame Gu has taken motor yacht design to a whole different level, and has definitely been an inspiration for many other superyachts.
