Don’t have $1 million?
Then you can’t charter the superyacht that is anchored in the Burrard Inlet.
But while $1.1 million can still get you a pretty decent condo in Vancouver, it will buy you only a week on Cloudbreak.
The 72.5 metre, German-built yacht sleeps 12 people and includes its own gym, sauna, plunge pool, on-deck Jacuzzi, fireplace, beach club and helicopter pad. If you want a totally relaxing cruise you can also hire up to 22 crew members, although that would cost you extra.
Anchored off the North Shore, it currently sports its own helicopter.
It’s not known why the superyacht is in Vancouver or who has chartered it. It was spotted in Prince Rupert and then, more recently, the Discovery Islands between Vancouver and the mainland.
“There is no need to meet Cloudbreak’s owner to understand that he is young, fit and adventurous,” says an article in Boat International. “Two of the owner’s passions are surfing and heli-skiing and, as every skier knows, a big part of the experience is après-ski. The yacht’s soothing sauna, massage room and chilled plunge pool provide the ultimate in relaxation after a day of biting cold and strenuous downhill action. Cloudbreak also switches into party mode quickly with an array of lights and speakers.”
Custom-built by in 2016, the owner played reportedly played a big role in the design by Norwegian Espen Oino for Abeking & Rasmussen.
Cloudbreak was named after a popular wave for surfers in Fiji.
If you have enough money to charter Cloudbreak, you can also be generous with your time. Don’t expect to get anywhere very fast. Her average cruising speed is 12 knots (22 km/hr) but she can do 16 knots. That gives people in their much smaller boats time for a nice, long look.
