How the Spectacular Superyacht Scout is Making Waves

Named for one of her owners’ dogs, Scout is a base from which they can explore the world.

By Ellie Brade

In 2019, over 150 brand-new superyachts were delivered; one of the standout designs of the year was the 209-ft yacht Scout , built for owner James Berwind and his partner, Kevin Clark. Named for one of her owners’ beloved dogs, she is set to be a semi-permanent base from which they can explore the world — canine companions  and all.

The story of Scout begins with a simple napkin. “We started with a sketch on a napkin before interviewing any designers,” say Berwind and Clark. “Our wish list was to have a capable, comfortable explorer to travel the world, and we got a long-range ice-classed yacht with ample crew and guest areas, advanced systems for fuel efficiency, telecommunications and responsible waste management.” From the moment of that very first sketch, the couple was extremely hands on throughout every stage of the build, resulting in an incredibly personal yacht. “During the build we were involved 110%, in every aspect of the project,” they say.

Once they’d developed an initial concept for the yacht, a range of designers were approached, with UK-based H2 Yacht Design eventually being commissioned for both the exterior and interior design. “Jonny Horsfield was a fantastic collaborator; he and his team executed our vision impeccably,” say Berwind and Clark. The decision was made to build at Hakvoort Shipyard in the Netherlands; Scout is now the biggest yacht that the 100-year-old yard has built to date.

Scout ’s fun detailing and a quirky design approach, paired with a contemporary and practical layout, make the yacht eminently usable while still bursting with personality. “ Scout ’s design was influenced by Fritz Lang’s Metropolis , the interiors of Jules Verne’s Nautilus submarine, every James Bond villain’s lair, with a touch of Looney Tunes ,” say Berwind and Clark. “Everything about the interior focuses on the outside views with abundant windows and sliding glass walls.”

Her distinct exterior design pairs hardy explorer capabilities, striking lines and a hint of trawler influence. While this sounds slightly odd on paper, in real life it works in a stunning way. This is a yacht with her own style — inside and out — that turns heads wherever she goes. Distinctive design elements include a high freeboard, exposed tenders in the bow with cut-down bulwarks and integrated forward-sloping windows.

Her gray hull and white superstructure are complemented by playful pops of yellow. “She is a very unique vessel that really captures the owners’ passion for being on the water and their fun outlook on yachting,” says Captain Kynan McDonald. “It’s been an exciting project to be a part of.”

On board the yacht, in addition to her owners, Scout is able to welcome up to eight guests in four cabins, each with its own nautical-inspired theme. The main deck is a focal guest space, with a beautiful main saloon that includes an LCD ceiling that mirrors the outside scenes. Complementing the main saloon is a large winter garden — a social hub that is perfect for year-round use, thanks to frameless glass panels that provide shelter when needed and retract when not in use, plus full air conditioning.

The winter garden space features a cocktail bar for sharing fresh beverages and a dining table for 14; it’s no surprise that this is a favorite spot for hosting. Aft of the winter garden is an intimate C-shaped fire pit that’s ideal for gathering around as the sun sets, with atmospheric flames flickering in front of the horizon.

A beautiful private owner’s apartment is accessed via a library studded with nautical-themed artifacts. The apartment is a stylish retreat with multiple spaces including an observation lounge forward — this characterful space includes a hidden bar area within a globe structure, seating around stone-topped tables inset with constellations and a carbon fiber squid sculpture by British artist Alistair Gibson hanging from the ceiling. The owners’ full-beam bedroom suite has two large bathrooms, walk-in closets and frosted full-length windows to port and starboard.

The master suite leads out to what the owners affectionately call “Puppy Park,” a custom-designed garden area for their two dogs, Scout and Brio, to enjoy. With their pets set to be on board for long stretches of time, it was very important to design the boat with this specialist usage in mind. “The dogs have their own ‘yard,’ all materials on board are pet-friendly, and all access points, such as the gates, scuppers and door sensors, are ‘puppy proofed,’” say Berwind and Clark. This passion for animals also extended to the construction of the yacht itself. “As animal rights activists, we used no animal-based materials — no fur, no hide, no bone, etc. — on board.”

Above the main deck, the bridge deck is home to the modern bridge, which has sophisticated operating systems and comfortable seating for those wanting to watch the captain at work. This deck also features another very personal space — dubbed the ‘greenhouse’ — which has been designed around the owners’ passion for gardening, and includes its own potting shed, sink and gardening equipment.

Outdoors, a favorite spot has proved to be the vast, multipurpose sundeck. “We live up there with our guests and dogs, and we also love the open fore to aft space,” say Berwind and Clark. The sundeck is an impressive open space, even by superyacht standards, with features including an inviting Jacuzzi and sweeping views across the ocean.

A helipad on the foredeck allows guests to arrive and depart in style by chopper, while an impressive crane ensures easy deployment of the vessel’s two 26-ft tenders. A packed lineup of toys and water equipment ensures that Scout ’s guests can enjoy their ocean playground no matter where they cruise. The yacht’s custom limousine tender, built by Cockwells, has been finished in the same color scheme as Scout and can carry up to 10 guests while reaching a thrilling top speed of 37 knots.

While the average superyacht is used for just six weeks a year, Scout will buck the trend, with her owners hoping to spend up to seven months of the year on board: It will be a true home away from home. “We plan to use Scout as our primary home for the next several years and hope to travel extensively wherever, whenever, with safety as a primary concern,” say Berwind and Clark.

“Bucket list locations include the British Isles, the Far East and Hawaii .” With her ice-classed hull, very little of the world will be off limits, and there is no doubt that her owners are set to enjoy cruising on board just as much as they enjoyed the build process. Scout truly embodies the endless possibilities of custom yacht building where, if you can dream it, it can be made a reality.

Real-life Succession in Kinsale as Billionaire's €80m superyacht pulls in for a pint at the Dock

Owner James Berwind is a fascinating character with a big story - and that's not a bad little boat

If you're missing the mega-hit TV drama Succession - you should take a trip to Kinsale to have a look at the real thing, in the form of the superyacht Scout and its billionaire owner, heir to a massive, shared family fortune.

The gorgeous yacht 'Scout' is tied up in front of the famous Dock pub this morning, taking up quite a lot of the Castlepark Marina as it becomes the first super-yacht of the summer to visit Cork Harbour.

The Scout as an impressive 209ft superyacht built in Holland in 2019 - originally, it is believed, to a design specified by the members of the Heineken family (yes, THAT Heineken) but bought by American James Berwind in 2020 for a price believed to be around €80m.

A deep ocean cruiser, she can comfortably cater for up to 10 guests and 14 staff and with its classic lines and relatively subdued design (for a superyacht at least) is considered one of the coolest yachts in the world. The fact that it has amenities including a fully equipped gym, cinema room, 3 bars, and a huge sun deck with a jacuzzi also helps on the desirability front.

However, it's the story of the owner, James Berwind (believed to be in Kinsale with his beloved Scout, named for one of the family dogs) that is even more fascinating.

The Florida-based Berwind is an heir to a vast, shared family fortune and with his brothers and sisters, part owner of an international global corporation - but he has forged a very different path in life to his father and grandfather before him.

His famous forebears Edward Julius and Charles Frederick Berwind were the founders of the Berwind-White Coal Mining company in America in the 1860s, which became a vast mining conglomerate that it still privately held in a family trust today. It has diversified from mining into areas including manufacturing and real estate. The Berwind Corporation's real estate holdings alone are worth around $3bn dollars.

However, while the family made its fortune in fossil fuels - James Berwind and his long-time partner Kevin Clark have devoted themselves to philanthropy, mostly focused on animal welfare and environmentalism, a path that could hardly be more different from that chosen by his coal-baron forebears.

His father Charles Graham Berwind was in the coal business and kept up the family passions for pastimes like Polo and Yachting.

With a personal fortune estimated to be around €500m and as a part of the family trust overseeing the Berwind Corporation, James Berwind is an architect who - along with his siblings - runs the international philanthropy foundation Spring Point Partners , supporting projects and people involved in environmental and community development worldwide.

Their mission is equality, justice and protecting the environment, a far cry from their forebears who made their vast family wealth in the coal mines of the United States.

And James himself, who sold his Palm Beach, Florida water-side mansion for $26.7m in 2021, has founded and runs several animal shelters and charities that protect vulnerable animals.

He is reported to have made the yacht Scout a 'semi-permanent home, to be used to explore the world" along with his long-term partner Kevin Clark. And you might see the man around Kinsale over the coming days, the yacht has dropped in after a visit to Dublin and will be on its way again shortly.

Billionaire John Berwind superyacht moors in Belfast

  • Northern Ireland
  • Thursday 22 June 2023 at 5:41pm

Billionaire's superyacht docks in Belfast.

A $65million superyacht owned by an American billionaire has docked in Belfast.

The Scout is owned by John Berwind. It arrived in Belfast, docking just beside the Odyssey after sailing from Dublin.

Built in 2019 in the Netherlands, the vessel is 63metres long, and styled as a "rugged explorer" style yacht.

It has a crew of 11 and can accommodate 14 guests. It has four guest bedrooms as well as an owner's deck. Other features include a helideck, cinema, gym, three bars as well as an expansive sun deck complete with large Jacuzzi.

The yacht was commissioned by the Heineken family, it is reported before being purchased by Berwind.

It is said to cost in the region of £5m a year to run.

Berwind's family established an American mining corporation in Pennsylvania in the 1800s before moving into manufacturing and real estate, pharma, chemicals and plastics.

The company also includes the TASI Group which controls businesses worldwide including Sepha which is based in Dundonald.

Berwind is an architect and understood to be holidaying in Ireland. He reportedly named the yacht after his beloved dog.

He and partner Kevin Clark use it as a semi-permanent base to allow them to explore the world, it has been reported.

They have dedicated their lives to philanthropy, environmentalism and animal welfare.

Recently the US billionaire Nancy Walton's £300m superyacht docked off the coast of Bangor.

A mammoth €80 million yacht could be on its way to Galway by following what's known as the Cool Blue Route, having docked in Cork.

The superyacht which is called "Scout" would not look out of place in the hit HBO show, Succession, and it's the first mega yacht to dock in the rebel county, this Summer.

The incredible yacht is currently docked at Castlepark Marina as its billionaire owner enjoys the sights and sounds of Cork.

Measuring it at an impressive 209ft, the superyacht was built in Holland in 2019 for the Heineken family, but has since been purchased by the American James Berwind in 2020 for a price believed to be around €80m.

The yacht can cater for 10 guests along with 14 crewmembers and it certainly has an understated look and design when compared to other superyachts.

Those onboard will be living the life of luxury as facilities include a fully equipped gym, cinema room, 3 bars, and a huge sun deck with a jacuzzi .

What are the chances of the yacht heading north and visiting Galway?

An insider told Galway Beo: "Already been to Dublin, now Cork - if it's following the Cool Blue Route (if you haven't heard about that - worth a story in itself - alternative route for cooler billionaires who want to avoid the crush in the Caribbean/Med) - it will call to Galway next".

James Berwind may not be a name that a lot of Irish people are familiar with but he is an heir to a vast, shared family fortune and with his brothers and sisters, part owner of an international global corporation.

His famous forebears Edward Julius and Charles Frederick Berwind were the founders of the Berwind-White Coal Mining company in America in the 1860s, which became a vast mining conglomerate that it still privately held in a family trust today.

Representing Hakvoort ’s largest motor yacht built to date, the 63.72m (209’) superyacht SCOUT has been delivered to her proud American owners, leaving Amsterdam on the 16th April 2019. The yacht features striking timeless exterior lines and elegant interiors, both designed by H2 Yacht Design . SCOUT is the new flagship of the shipyard, spreading 11.6 metres in a beam with a draft of 3.36m, offering great spaces on board with naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design .

Constructed for an accomplished yachtsman, the shipyard, owner’s team and designers closely cooperated on creating SCOUT’s bespoke exterior design and interiors, resulting in a significant vintage maritime aesthetic that respects the owners’ authentic vision.

“The client was closely involved throughout the whole process and had a very clear idea of what aesthetic he was looking for both inside and out,” explains Jonny Horsfield, Founder of H2 Yacht Design in London. “The overall interior aesthetic can best be described as Jules Verne meets Ian Fleming meets Fritz Lang. We were inspired by the underwater world, sea creatures, and this industrial, nautical design philosophy – with a hint of a Bond villain’s lair.”

The exterior feature a unique high bow with exposed tenders in the bow with cut-down bulwarks and incorporated forward leaning windows. The yacht features fabulous attention to detail with everything on the yacht styled to achieve a perfect harmony of the design philosophy. The main style is industrial, with onboard elements such as the industrial-style stairs, heavy looking bolts running through the exterior or the exterior bar area on the man deck that was inspired by the engine room vents.

Great level of attention has also been applied to her interior areas: adds Horsfield: “Inside, the design is a little off-the-wall – we’ve never done anything like this before. The main saloon is a particular talking point with a huge bespoke polished nickel coffee table sat below an interactive LCD ceiling that mirrors the outside environment. Throughout the corridors, we have pulsing, flashing lights in the ceilings which is a nod to the pulsing lights of the power source of the submarine in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Each guest cabin is styled the same with a different theme, and down to the door handles which look like repurposed cleats, everything is true to SCOUT’s design philosophy.”

“The owner didn’t want a regular white boat, and we’ve really stood up to the challenge of creating a very unique vessel. The owner challenged all of us at the studio and the yard to think outside of the box, and the result is one of the most interesting projects of my career.”

SCOUT is fitted with two Caterpillar 3512C Diesel engines, reaching a top speed o 14.8 knots with a cruising speed of 12.5 knots. She has an ICE CLASS hull and an autonomous range of 4,800 nautical miles at 12 knots with great ocean-keeping.

In addition to this exciting new delivery and with 2019 marking Hakvoort’s 100th birthday, the shipyard is also proud to announce the signing of a contract for a new 61m superyacht as well as additional two yachts currently under build.

Scout Yacht 101: An Insider’s Guide

Ian Fortey

The Scout yacht was built by Hakvoort Shipyards in the Netherlands back in the year 2019. Both the interior and exterior design work was done by English design house H2 Yacht Design with naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design. Ownership of the yacht actually changed hands during the construction process in 2018. It started life as Project Zeus and then was changed to Project Brio when a new owner took over, before finally being christened Scout when it was finished. 

Who is the Scout Yacht Owner?

superyacht scout owner

Scout is owned by James Berwind, philanthropist and heir to the Berwind Corporation. His net worth is estimated at around $500 million and, along with his partner Kevin Clark, he purchased the Scout for them and their rescue dogs. The name of the yacht is not one that sounds unusual at first, especially for an expedition yacht but it’s actually named after Berwind’s dog. One of the features of the yacht is actually a custom sculpture of Scout the dog.

Unlike some yacht owners, Berwin and Clark spend a lot of time on this yacht,essentially living on it as it suits their outdoor and travel-loving lifestyle. Berwind has said that the idea for the yacht came to him and Clark during a conversation about what they’d want and sketching it out on a napkin, well before they even spoke to a designer.

How Big is the Yacht Scout?

superyacht scout owner

The Scout is an expedition yacht that clocks in at 209’1” in length. Not nearly the longest yacht in the world but definitely something that qualifies as a superyacht based on the length alone. In addition to the length, it’s got a beam of 36’9” and weighs in with a gross tonnage of 1,461 GT.

How Much Did the Scout Yacht Cost?

superyacht scout owner

The Scout Yacht cost its owner a tidy sum of about $85 million back in 2019. It’s been reported that the annual running costs for the yacht are somewhere between $5 million and $8 million which is not unusual for a yacht of this size at all.

Is Yacht Charter A Possibility with the Scout Yacht?

At this time the Scout is not available for charter. 

How Fast is the Scout Motor Yacht and What Engines Does it Use?

superyacht scout owner

The Scout has a cruising speed of 12.5 knots and it has a top speed of 15.2 knots although some sources report this a little bit lower at around 14.8 knots. It has a range of 4,800 nautical miles which it can achieve thanks to a pair of Caterpillar diesel (3512C) 1,575hp engines running at 1800 rpm. The yacht has 159,000 liter fuel capacity as well.

What’s the Interior of the Scout Yacht Like?

superyacht scout owner

Because Berwind and Clark use the yacht as a home more so than simply a luxury toy, the interior design of the Scout is very comfortable and inviting. You’ll notice in the photos that, even though it does have that look of luxury, there’s also something a little more like a penthouse apartment than a fancy hotel feel. Things like the plush master suite and the on board garden show that there’s an interest in making this yacht a home more than what you might see on other luxury yachts and especially on charter vessels which have to be a little more impersonal. 

None of that is to suggest the Scout doesn’t have a lot of those great luxury features that make superyachts so enticing. Quite the opposite, in fact. There’s a lot going on with this vessel. It has room on board for 10 guests across five separate cabins.

The Master suite is accessed through a personally curated library of books, antiques and nautical-themed features that have appealed to the owners. It’s roughly the size of a studio apartment in Manhattan and stretches the full beam of the ship. It features two full bathrooms, walk-in closets and frosted, full-length windows at port and starboard. There’s also a private terrace for taking in views of the sea. The terrace also serves as a place for the owner’s dogs to play and get some fresh air on board.

In addition to the master suit, there are two VIP suites for guests as well as 2 double staterooms. 

Berwind and Clark were hands-on during the entire design process of the yacht and ensured that there were some serious pop culture influences at play. Berwind has stated that the design aesthetic was influenced by Fritz Lang’s classic science fiction film Metropolis, the interiors of Jules Verne’s Nautilus submarine, every James Bond villain’s lair, and even Looney Tunes cartoons. You’ll probably never find another yacht with a similar pedigree.

Amenities and Features

superyacht scout owner

  • The owner has hand-picked artwork throughout the yacht including many pieces by New York artist William Steiger
  • A custom-designed one of a kind greenhouse can be accessed from the puppy park and features a wide array of hanging and potted plants tended by Berwind himself.
  • A custom, high-tech security system, details of which are obviously not available, was installed to keep the vessel safe as it travels to all parts of the world and could potentially face some dangerous situations.
  • A guest elevator to help navigate between decks
  • A helipad at the foredeck allows guests to come and go via helicopter even when the vessel is at sea
  • The steel hull over aluminum superstructure is built to be ice class, meaning it’s stronger than a typical yacht and can handle travel in sub-zero temperatures. This also means the propeller and rudder are designed to be more robust and capable of navigating frigid Northern waters as well. 
  • There is both an on deck pool and sauna for relaxing located on a massive sundeck
  • Like many similar yachts, the Scout features a gym, fully equipped with the latest gear, for working out.
  • A cinema room for movie watching
  • Both formal and casual dining areas depending on mood and occasion 
  • The yacht was designed with an eye towards running greener and more sustainably than some other yachts. To that end the engines have improve fuel efficiency and waste management systems are also highly advanced to cut down on the yacht’s overall footprint
  • The upper deck features a large sunbed and then features a large area for parties, dining, or just lounging
  • The ceiling of the main saloon is an LCD screen that mirrors the exterior view, making it seem as though you’re outside despite being in
  • The Scout has a pair of 26 foot tenders that can be brought on board or lowered into the sea viz the on-board crane system

The Scout also houses a number of nautical toys but a full list of things such as jet skis and seabobs has not been made public to allow us to know the extent of the items on board.

The Bottom Line

superyacht scout owner

The superyacht Scout was built by Hakvoort yachts and is owned by James Berwind. It was launched in 2019. An expedition yacht with a hull designed to handle even the coldest temperatures, Berwind spends a lot of time living on the yacht with his partner and rescue dogs. This includes a dog named Scout, who the yacht was named after.

At just over 209 feet it’s a large yacht, though far from the biggest, and it’s believed to have cost Berwind $85 million. It has a maximum speed of just over 15 knots. Because it’s used not just as a pleasure boat but as a home, it has many features that make it more unique than a typical yacht which includes a lot of custom facilities designed to handle dogs, such as a puppy garden on an observation deck. In addition, there are features such as a garden that grows hanging and potted plants year round.

49m yacht Asteria in motion ice

Owner's logbook: the upcoming European adventures for Asteria and King Benji

Every month, superyacht owners reveal where they are in the world and share their future plans. This month, BOAT speaks to an owner about a new-build project with zero regrets and an owner who is lucky enough to do once-in-a-lifetime cruising twice...

Owner of Asteria

Length: 49m Year: 1970 Location: Norway

What have you got planned for this summer? We’re heading up to Norway, starting in Stavanger and we’re going to keep going north, up to the Lofoten Islands and ultimately Svalbard. My good friend Espen Øino , a native of Norway, has given us some amazing ideas of things to do in Norway. We love these kinds of latitudes. 

We’ve done the west coast of Greenland and the entrance to the North West Passage in Asteria , and in January we went on Le Commandant Charcot passenger ship to Antarctica, which was incredible. So we’ve done a lot of these places, but never Norway and Svalbard, and we thought it’d be pretty cool to tick off the Antarctic and Arctic in the same year. We had been considering South East Asia this year, but we didn’t feel like sending the boat through the Suez and down into the Gulf of Aden, which has become a lot riskier lately.

Tell us more about Le Commandant Charcot ... It’s the most amazing boat in the world. It’s a true state-of-the-art ice-breaker and is only three years old. It can plough through two metres of pack ice! I’d thoroughly recommend it. The amenities on board are amazing. This was a kind of research trip so we were able to visit some very remote places such as the Larsen B ice shelf, which is uncharted territory.

What draws you to these places? I feel like we only have a few years left to visit these places before they disappear, or it’ll be forbidden to go there. My boys are eight and 10, so I want to do it now and show it to my kids. I don’t want to spend all summer in the Med – it doesn’t appeal. We did spend a lot of time in Greece last year and had a wonderful time there exploring the villages and different landscapes, but I barely saw a single fish. The wrecks are fun to dive, but there’s no wildlife left beneath the water.

What are your longer range plans? We would love to go back to the South Pacific. We spent three or four years there with Asteria and loved it. Cocos Island is incredible; we loved Polynesia. My favourite spot was the southern part of Fakarava, an atoll in the west of the Tuamotu Islands. I also want to go back to Vanuatu. These are once-in-a-lifetime places, so we’re very lucky to get the opportunity to go back. And there aren’t many boats. It’s a huge commitment to send your boat there, and if you do, you really need to spend a few years there. It makes no sense otherwise.

Do you take guides with you? Not always. We will have someone with us in Svalbard, but we’ll be following Espen’s plan up the coast of Norway. We might engage some guides for shore excursions. When we dive, we always have a guide, as that way  you guarantee you get the best from the experience. We can’t wait to get going on this trip. But I should mention that we have some availability on our luxury charter yacht in July in Norway, if anyone would like to spend some time on one of the world’s most capable explorers!

Josh Golder

Yacht: King Benji Length: 46.7m Year: 2024 Location: South of France

What’s on the agenda for your first summer with the boat? We’ll head to Croatia and Montenegro. We also want to visit Albania, as we’ve never been there but hear it’s the new up-and-coming hotspot. I love those Adriatic islands. At the end of the season we’ll probably head back west and across to the Caribbean but stop off at Madeira on the way.

You’ve only been on the boat a few weeks, but have you got a favourite spot on board? I love the breakfast bar next to the open galley. There’s a huge window right next to the table, so we can eat informally and watch the world go by. I love interacting with the chef and seeing what he’s preparing. We’re also spending a lot of time in the main saloon.

Is there anything you would have done differently? In almost every project I’ve ever been involved with, I’ve always come to the end and thought there was something I should have done differently. But with King Benji , I can’t think of a single thing. There’s a few little cosmetic items, like the handles of the cupboards, but as far as the layout and design are concerned, the boat has exceeded all expectations. We went into such detail in the preparation phase that this doesn’t surprise me – we built a 1:1 mock-up of the interior to make sure we got exactly what we wanted.

What were the project’s absolute prerequisites? Seamless floors was a massive one for me. I hate it when you have a lip or sill between indoor and outdoor areas. I just feel like it ruins the connection. I wanted a really easy transition between the spaces. I also wanted to make sure there was no wasted space – there is nowhere on board where you think, “Oh, we already have this.” But really the whole project emanated from the big aft deck. We can carry a 12-metre Nor-Tech chase boat, jet skis and all the other toys. It all stemmed from there.

You were looking to buy 45-metre Big Fish before embarking on a new build. Are you glad you didn’t? I am very glad we didn’t succeed in buying Big Fish because I would never have known how fun a new-build project can be – putting the team together and collectively creating something totally new that’s never been seen before. I think we’ve moved the explorer game on.

What are your long-range plans with the boat? I don’t really think long term. The truth is, we could do anything with this boat. It really just depends on how we’re feeling. I would like to go to Alaska with her, but that’s as far as that thinking has gone! I would like to build a bigger series of these boats, incorporating everything we’ve learned. But right now, having no plan is the plan.

Billionaires like Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg spend six figures a year maintaining their superyachts. Here's how.

  • Superyachts  are one of the most expensive assets money can buy.
  • The true cost of ownership is even more, adding up to millions a year.
  • Here's how much it costs to own a superyacht — and what that money is going toward.

Financial advisors are quick to warn prospective owners that a boat is nothing more than a hole in the water in which to throw money. When it comes to superyachts , you'd better have bags and bags of cash.

As one luxury agent told Business Insider at the Palm Beach International Boat Show: "Buying a boat, it's a huge purchase — and nobody needs a yacht."

A superyacht, generally over 30 meters long, is one of the most expensive assets money can buy, with the largest costing more than a lot of real estate or a private jet. Billionaires like Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, and Steve Jobs each spent nine figures on their megayachts.

That doesn't include operating costs. Owners should expect to pay about 10% of a yacht's new-build price each year, experts told Business Insider. That's tens of millions of dollars annually for the most luxurious boats.

"It's a small-to-medium-sized business in its own right," said Jeffrey Beneville, a senior vice president at insurance company NFP, where he specializes in consulting clients about yachts.

Unlike many smaller boats, superyachts need staff, not just a captain. Some superyachts have space for dozens of crewmembers , including a chef, engineer, and masseuse for the guests onboard. Each gets an annual salary — the highest-ranking members earn six figures — and benefits. Eric Schmidt's yacht fits a crew of 28 for a ratio of about two crewmembers per guest.

Then there's fuel, dockage fees, routine maintenance, and insurance. The latter hinges on everything from the reputation of a yacht's shipyard to where an owner wants to take it (if a vessel is taking frequent trips to the South China Sea, for example, expect to pay a higher premium). If a superyacht has a support yacht — or a support superyacht, in Bezos ' case — expect to pay another 10% of that boat's price annually.

"The cost to maintain a yacht is so high that they just think that money's getting lit on fire," Matthew Fleissig, the CEO of wealth management firm Pathstone, told BI of his clients who choose to charter rather than own.

One of his firm's clients who does own has a 23-meter yacht valued at $5.2 million. The annual cost to staff, maintain, dock, and insure the boat is $346,297, according to documentation provided to BI. The lion's share is spent on marina fees ($95,970) and maintenance work ($88,408.) While not exactly a Sunfish, that boat is too small to count as a superyacht.

At 106 meters, the Amadea, owned by a sanctioned Russian oligarch , definitely does. The $300 million yacht, which was seized in 2022 and is docked in San Diego, cost $922,000 a month to maintain, a court filing showed: $360,000 for crew salaries, $75,000 for fuel, $144,000 for insurance, $178,000 in dry-docking fees, and $165,000 for maintenance, waste removal, food for the crew, and miscellaneous expenses.

"And that's an inactive yacht that's in the water," NFP's Beneville said.

If it were operational and carrying guests, the costs would be about twice that, or between $20 million and $30 million a year, he added.

Of course, it makes more financial sense for the non-obsessives to charter, and many of Fleissig's clients do. And some owners choose to offer their yachts for charter — the most luxurious cost as much as $1 million a week — to offset the costs.

"If you charter the boat for 50 days a year, it's going to help a lot," Anders Kurtén, the CEO of brokerage firm Fraser Yachts, told BI.

Then again, the running costs don't matter as much at a certain point. "If you're worth $30 billion, it's nothing. And if you're worth $117 billion — and these are the guys we're talking about — they're in it as long as it's still enjoyable for them," Beneville said. "It's not a money thing."

Byc sunkist series.

The Sunkist Series, hosted by the Balboa Yacht Club ,  includes one-design racing for Inside Classes on four Saturdays and PHRF and one-design racing for Outside Classes on four Sundays spanning a four-month (Nov. – Feb.) period. The Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) Regatta is a fundraising event that uses the November Sunkist Series races to provide an opportunity to compete for additional awards and contribute to CHOC.

These events are open to members in good standing of clubs or organizations affiliated with Southern California Yachting Association (SCYA) or any national authority associated with the sport of sailboat racing.  There is no fee for entering the one-design races.

The racing area is primarily inside Newport Harbor with races starting and finishing at the BYC Race Tower. Sunkist Series awards will be presented on the final day of the series with “daily” awards presented at the conclusion of each racing day.

Once ‘Flight of the Snowbirds,’ today’s Flight of Newport Beach sailboat race carries on 85-year tradition

Lasers navigate into position at the start line of Flight of Newport Beach sailboat race in Newport Harbor on Sunday.

  • Show more sharing options
  • Copy Link URL Copied!

Sunday found local sailing enthusiasts vying for bragging rights in the 85th annual Flight of Newport Beach, but one did not need to be a sailor to appreciate the stirring vision as the race got underway on the south side of Balboa Island.

”You’ll never see that many sailboats on a start line at the same time,” said David Beek, race chairman. “They all line up and want to be the first one across the start line.”

Beek’s father, Balboa Island resident Seymour Beek, began racing in the event in 1941 when it was Flight of the Snowbirds. He was 7 years old and captured the award for the youngest skipper.

Today at 88 he continues to enjoy sailing and seeing familiar faces competing next to him in his Laser named Big Jim.

Over the years, the senior Beek has not only competed in a variety of sailing races but has also served as principal race officer for the Flight of Newport Beach.

“This event is a single race spectacle, the only one of its kind,” he said. “It’s a lot of fun for a lot of people and as a yacht race shouldn’t be taken too seriously.”

Flight of Newport Beach race chairman David Beek keeps watch on the Sunday race from his boat. With him is Bronny Daniels.

Irvine resident Rich Luttrell, who has been racing Lasers for 25 years competed this year with his wife, Karen for the first-place “Married Couple” award. He agrees the event is all in fun.

“Twenty percent of the people are out there to win a race,” Luttrell said. “But with so many boats, most people are trying to either beat the boat ahead or stay in front of the boat behind.”

The event is the longest running continuous race in Newport Harbor. Sponsored by the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce, Commodores Club, and hosted by the Balboa Yacht Club, Beek explained that the event is free and open to all ages.

“Along with the no age limit and free to enter, there is no yacht club affiliation,” he said. “A lot of kids come out and sail without experience. We encourage everyone to come out.”

Sailing his Laser, Big Jim, Seymour Beek, 88, competes in Flight of Newport Beach sailboat race on Sunday.

The race continues to evolve by keeping current with vessel changes.

The premier race started as the Flight of the Snowbirds in 1936 and became one of the largest small sailboat races in the world, with 200 boats entered at its height of popularity in 1950.

A Snowbird is a small wooden boat class with an 11-foot hull and was once the most popular boat in Newport Beach.

In the early 1970s the race became Flight of the Kites, an American recreational sailing dinghy with wooden mast and a fiberglass hull that was nearly a foot longer than the Snowbird.

In 1979 the race then became the Flight of the Lasers. The Laser boat is constructed of fiberglass and was built with an emphasis on simplicity and performance.

It has become one of the most popular dinghy classes in the history of competitive racing. The lightweight Laser is 13.9 feet and can accommodate two sailors.

Today the race is called the Flight of Newport Beach, officially named by the Commodores Club in 2019. With the trend for better and faster boats there are 100-plus boats in three different classes, Harbor-20, Lasers and a new class of high performance, O’pen Skiff.

With the addition of Harbor 20-boat type, a 20-foot-long, 900-pound contemporary daysailer that can hold up to eight people.

The 9-foot-long O’pen Skiff, with a self draining hull of polyethylene, attracts younger sailors and can hold a couple of people.

 Jane Hoffner Horst, Merry Cheers and Susan Jennings compete for the Balboa Yacht Club.

Newport Beach resident Jane Hoffner Horst and her all-female team raced a Harbor-20 boat. Although Horst has been racing for about 40 years, mostly in Long Beach, this was only her second time entering the Flight of Newport Beach.

Horst, a member of the Balboa Yacht Club, coaches an H-20 sailing clinic for women at the club on Monday nights.

“It’s a really fun regatta” she said. “It’s basically a tour of the Newport Harbor, while mixing it up with a lot of different boats.”

Balboa Yacht Club begins acceptance of Requests for Invitation for 56th Governor’s Cup

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Wednesday, February 8, 2023

Governor’s Cup will be July 24-29; World Youth Match Racing Champion commits to attend; World’s other top match race skippers under 23 invited to apply

NEWPORT BEACH, CA (Wednesday, February 8, 2023) Balboa Yacht Club has posted all the information necessary for requesting an invitation (“RFI”) to the 56th Governor’s Cup International Youth Match Racing Championship, July 24-29, 2023. Information is found on the event website (www.govcupracing.com) under “Race Documents.”

Governor’s Cup 2021 winner and reigning Youth Match Racing World Champion, the host club’s Jeffrey Petersen will be back to try to get his second GovCup, after a runner-up finish to New Zealand’s Jordan Stevenson last year. Petersen, now ranked 6th in the World Open Match Racing rankings, which is not age-limited, is one of a contingent of young U.S. Match Racing skippers and teams who have emerged in recent years to challenge the international teams that have won seven of the last ten “GovCups.” A rivalry has developed between Petersen and Jack Egan of San Diego (3rd last year) and continued to the U.S. Intercollegiate Match Racing Champion, where Egan defeated Petersen to win his second straight championship. BYC hopes that rivalry continues this year.

Also, a possible entry will be Sweden’s Marius Westerlind, who made quite an impression in the Cup last year after his runner-up finish in the Youth MR World Champion behind Petersen. He lost to Egan and ended up in 4th place in 2022, but his “learning curve” from his 12th place finish in 2021 was truly remarkable. His sense of humor was also obvious at the Cup. When asked if his dad was coming to watch as he did in 2021, Westerlind said, “No, he made other plans because he didn’t realize I had gotten good!”

The Governor’s Cup is presented by Disc Sports & Spine Center and is an invitational event for sailors that have not reached their 23rd birthday by the last day of the regatta. It is the world’s oldest international youth match racing regatta and “alumni” have competed in, and won the America’s Cup, the Congressional Cup, Olympic medals, the World Match Racing Tour Championship, and perhaps surprisingly given the difference in the sport’s disciplines, the Round the World Race (now known as the “Ocean Race”).

“Last year felt more like a typical Governor’s Cup with concerns about COVID somewhat lower, allowing international travel again,” said Christine Gribben, Chair of the event. “This year should again be great and our committee and BYC can hardly wait.”

The event will be a “Grade 3” event, but after the selection of teams, the Club may reapply for retroactive regrading if the quality of the sailors continues to be excellent. Grading of events by World Sailing is based primarily on the “Open” (non-age-limited) rankings of the skippers. In 2018, the Governor’s Cup was retroactively regraded to Grade 1, the first youth match racing regatta to achieve that level, normally reserved for events with mostly or all professional sailors.

The Cup is sailed in identical “Governor’s Cup 22” sloops provided to the competitors by the Newport Balboa Sailing & Seamanship Association and BYC. They were designed by famed yacht designer and BYC Staff Commodore, Alan Andrews, and feature fractional rigs, flat top mains, and masthead spinnakers. They have proved perfectly suited for racing in wind speeds of as little as 4-5 knots, but also perform well and are exciting to sail in the 18-20 knot conditions prevalent in the 2021 Cup.

Grunion sports, grunion sports | on the water: alamitos bay yacht club’s youth sailing program aims to welcome all, the club’s sailing director, carter brock, has an impressive resume.

balboa yacht club racing

The goal of the Alamitos Bay Yacht Club’s youth sailing program is to develop crews that are comfortable in and on the water, which can be a challenge for many. Luckily, the club is headed by a man who knows the struggle.   

The club’s sailing director, Carter Brock, has an impressive resume. He was on his high school sailing team and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Northeastern University, where he was on the sailing team.

He also served as the weekend dockmaster and assistant sailing coach at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and for six years he taught at the Casino, a yacht club in North Haven, Maine. The Casino is home to the North Haven Dinghy, the oldest racing class in America, founded in 1887. So, he knows a thing or two about dinghy sailing.

On keelboats, he will be racing in the California Dreamin’ series this weekend, April 6-7, as a part of skipper Nick Kofski’s crew – who he raced on board with for Butler Cup.

Reading Brock’s resume, you would think that he was never less than comfortable on the water, but that isn’t true.

When he was about 8 years old, his father took him out on a Laser, and the unsteadiness of the small boat “freaked” him out, he said

“I just wasn’t ready for it and I didn’t get on a dinghy again until seventh grade,” Brock said in a phone interview.

In his second on-the-water experience, he said he capsized right away but was able to swim around and right the boat. Once he realized capsizing was not the horror he thought it would be – and the fix was easy – he said he became passionate about the sport.

Now, he says he wants to help everyone feel comfortable sailing and is appreciative that Alamitos Bay YC’s summer program is open to non-members, with needs-based scholarships available through the Alamitos Bay Sailing Foundation.

“Non-members are always welcome to our sailing programs, for both youths and adults, and sailing is a sport that everyone should be welcome to learn,” Alamitos Bay YC Commodore Gabe Ferramola wrote in a text. “It’s a wonderful sport that one can enjoy the environment while learning about physics, weather, responsibilities, problem solving, independence, teamwork and much more.”

This first class in the program is for sailors looking to start their sailing journey. The reliable sail cube boat will help young sailors develop their independence and confidence in Alamitos Bay. The class stresses safe habits around the water and fun drills.

Over the two-week sessions, students will have plenty of time to get comfortable in the boats, learn new skills and make lifelong friendships.

“Participants learn to rig their own sailboat, sail on their own, and eventually participate in a race,” Brock said. “They also learn how wind, weather and current work. Sailors will learn to sail in Alamitos Bay in ‘sail cubes,’ a plastic version of the Optimist.”

The classes run Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and cost $800 per session.

The program runs four two-week sessions: Session 1: June 17 through June 28; Session 2: July 1 through July 12; Session 3: July 15 through July 26; Session 4: July 29 through August 9. There are no classes on June 21, July 4 and July 19.

“Cube sailors will graduate to the Optimist or the Naples Sabot, both one-person boats for children younger than 15,” Brock said. “Classes will also be offered in the Club Flying Junior, a two-person boat for teens, and the Laser, a one-person boat for teens.”

Boats and equipment are provided for all classes, although students are welcome to bring their own. For details, visit ABYC.org.

California Dreamin’

This weekend, April 6-7, Long Beach Yacht Club is hosting the fourth and final stop of the California Dreamin’ Series (CDS). It will be raced in the Long Beach Sailing Foundation’s Catalina 37s.

The first three match-racing regattas were held at San Diego Yacht Club from Jan. 27 to 28 in J/22 type boats, Balboa Yacht Club from Feb. 17 to 18 in GovCup 21 type boats and St. Francis YC from March 16 to 17 in J/22 type boats.

The skipper with the highest series score will be declared the winner of the CDS, and the LBYC stop must be counted as one of the scored events if the skipper wishes to receive an invitation to Ficker Cup 2025.

This means that the winner of CDS might not necessarily receive an invitation to Ficker Cup, because it will only go to the highest scoring skipper who included LBYC in their series points.

St. Francis Yacht Club’s Nicole Breault took top honors in the 2023 CDS, and as a result, earned her 2024 Ficker Cup berth. The top three finishers in the 2024 Ficker Cup will earn berths in the 2024 Congressional Cup.

Taking design cues from Enata’s “flying yachts” Foiler , Foiler USV , and Vatoz , the first 55-footer will feature a sleek carbon hull that ensures both strength and speed on the high seas. The yacht will also incorporate materials such as kevlar and titanium that are sturdy yet lightweight. The exterior combines angular, futuristic lines with organic structures. The superstructure is adorned with a dynamic glass dome inspired by intricate bird skeletons, according to Mirrari. The dome enhances structural integrity and ensures the interiors receive plenty of natural light.

“This collaboration resonated with my passion for unique materials and design concepts,” Bozca adds. “Rashed sought not only innovative design but also a distinctive sensory experience.”

The living quarters showcase contemporary furnishings, striking lighting, high-end materials, and a subtle neutral palette. The upper deck is home to an indoor-outdoor salon, a dining area, and the helm, while the lower deck is outfitted with two full-beam en suite cabins, a galley, and a small lounge. Heading outside, the aft deck is equipped with a BBQ and bar, the stern sports a large sun pad, and the bow is lined with more plush seating.

The inaugural Mirarri yacht is currently under construction, with delivery scheduled for 2025.

“I can’t wait for the first Mirarri to be revealed to the world,” said Al Shaali.

Orcas again sink yacht near Strait of Gibraltar as high-risk season looms

Two people were rescued after orcas hit the roughly 50-foot Alboran Cognac 14 miles off the coast of Morocco, the 26th orca encounter in the region this year.

The boat-sinking orcas are back.

Around 9 a.m. Sunday near the Strait of Gibraltar, two people on board the roughly 50-foot Alboran Cognac reported blows to the vessel’s hull and saw damage to the rudder as water flowed into the ship, Spain’s maritime rescue agency said.

An unknown number of killer whales had struck again, after hundreds of such encounters in recent years.

Over the radio, responders told the two individuals to put on their life jackets, make sure their GPS locaters were turned on and prepare for emergency evacuation. In the meantime, Spanish and Moroccan rescue agencies began urgently working to save them, locating a nearby oil tanker and electing not to dispatch a helicopter.

After about an hour, that tanker rescued the pair 14 miles off Cape Spartel in northern Morocco, the Spanish Maritime Safety and Rescue Agency (SASEMAR) said in a news release. The boat was left adrift and soon sank.

Spain-based Alboran Charter confirmed its ownership of the sunken vessel and said the individuals were customers. The company declined to say more about what happened or who the clients were.

Iberian orcas sinking a ship is not new. Over the past four years, at least 15 orcas have interacted with hundreds of boats sailing in the waters off Portugal, Spain and Morocco, sinking a handful of vessels in seemingly coordinated ambushes. Some ships have been found with teeth marks; others appear to have been rammed by an orca’s head or body.

On average, there have been 168 interactions each year since 2020, according to Grupo de Trabajo Orca Atlántica, or GTOA, a research group studying the region’s killer whales. GTOA has tracked 26 interactions so far this year, down from 61 through a similar time frame in 2023.

It’s not clear why the orcas have recently bumped, bitten and sank vessels. Some scientists say they are simply being playful, or maybe are curious, or perhaps are coming after boats because of a loss of prey. A handful say the actions could actually be gratifying to the whales.

A leading theory, though, is one of vengeance.

This idea, advanced by a scientist who has studied the encounters, posits that a female orca suffered a traumatic run-in with a boat that led her to start attacking the vessels. And because orcas are intelligent marine mammals that learn behaviors like hunting together, others followed.

But there is disagreement over this theory.

Some scientists argue that the incidents shouldn’t be called “attacks” without knowing the whales’ motives. They fear that label could prompt retaliation by boaters, calling it potentially “harmful” to the critically endangered species with just a few dozen members.

“Science cannot yet explain why the Iberian orcas are doing this, although we repeat that it is more likely related to play/socialising than aggression,” a group of more than 30 scientists wrote in an open letter last summer. “ … When we are at sea, we are in the realm of marine life. We should not punish wildlife for being wild.”

The letter explained that orcas have been observed developing “cultural ‘fads,’” including carrying dead fish on their heads, and the incidents with the boats may be nothing more than a “fashion trend.”

SASEMAR warned that the risk of the encounters is highest between May and August, recommending that boats avoid the area between the Strait of Gibraltar to the Gulf of Cádiz to its west. It added that if a boat comes across orcas, it should not stop moving, and instead should head toward the coast and shallower waters. People should not approach the side of the boat and are barred from using measures that could injure or kill the whales.

“It is possible the behaviour, as previous fads have,” the scientists wrote, “will disappear as suddenly as it appeared.”
