If you have to ask....lol!

Gorgeous interior, just have a look at the dingy garage, and the tenders!

Heads are a bit flashy with all that chrome and marble .

CRN is Ferreti ownered; Italian design at its best. Love the wood interiors.

I don't like it.

Looks like a stack of lumber. Or slabs stacked up. All straight lines. Looks like it's got too much mass in the middle. It's probably not but it looks a bit bow heavy just cause there's no rise in it's sheer fwd. and the color is good for a wheelbarrow or perhaps a gun.

All that money. And to think they could have made a propper boat worthy of the title "Yacht". It would be best put on land (flat) and used as an office building for lawyer's.

In it's defense. It looks fast. The Darth Vader color will appeal to those that drive big long black PU trucks. Visability seems to be quite good. Windage dosn't seem excessive.

Lol.

Its definitely not as sleek as a willard sheer line, that's true; but taking into consideration the fact that ' money is a great impediment to taste' its quite a refined super yacht; I'm thinking of that huge monstrosity Steve jobs was building: yuck!

I like Atlante's military, "don't F with me", look. It's fairly proportional too. Better than most stylish yachts. Should age well.

Jobs yacht is butt ugly. Looks like something Bolger would've designed in his "shock the Establishment" plywood box series of designs.

I think you're right, fashion goes out of fashion very quickly, whereas workboat lines stay good looking for decades; the lobster boat look has been going for a very long time and still looks great.

Looks like the designers of Atlante got their inspirations from Yacht Skat

Wouldn't want to get caught in front of it...

If I had that kind of money I would have a crew as well as a really good "Sub" Captain aboard. However... I would often act as "The" Captain.

With that said: Flying bridge would be carefully designed into my boat. I LOVE to pilot from an open flying bridge! I can just imagine piloting across "a pond" mid summer, on AP, resting atop of the boat... with my feet kicked up and music playing!

Rustybarge,
Look how far back the anchor is on the Steve Jobs boat. I would use a hiding anchor flush w the bottom of the hull. That dark stem and dark spot where the anchor is sure mucks up the long powerful lines of the rest of the boat .. that make it what it is visually.

Re the aft house it has basic lines very much like the early 20's yachts except for the extreme eaves. The very long and slender foredeck also harks of the early 20's.

Well spotted, I never noticed the anchor; you'd never expect to find one located so far back from the bow.

I do not care for the overall styling of the Jobs boat but the below-deck V-berth/lounge in the extreme bow looks like a very very cool place to hang out. Hope the glass is nice and thick.

I like the design of Steve Job's yacht a lot. Reminds me of the battle cruisers and dreadnaughts of WWI. Photo is the HMS Courageous.

I read somewhere that Feadship had a hull #2 under contract for design phase that omitted the steel segment on the bow and had a true 360 degree window in the bow. Structural engineer earned his keep on this hull. Definitely an interesting boat.

Stand up engine room. Stabilized. Keel cooled. 2500 gallons fuel. 😳

Terrible pictures IMO.

Finally got a couple good pics of the Estrella. Awesome boat.

The owner is in the orange shirt and hes piloting it with a remote in his hand.

I recall the PMM article; it was a very handsome vessel from the photos at the time.

It would appear from the abysmal photos provided that subsequent owners have completely removed the original charm of the boat; trying to make it low maintenance I suppose. No longer a head turner in my view.
