Why the Mercedes F1 team is getting involved in yacht racing

yacht formula 1

The Mercedes Formula One team has joined forces with British sailor Ben Ainslie in a quest to win the America's Cup for Great Britain's Royal Yacht Squadron.

The America's Cup is the oldest international trophy in sport, predating the Olympics by 45 years, but has not been won by a British team since it was first held as a race around the Isle of Wight in 1851. The Ineos Britannia team, skippered by Ainslie, hopes to change that by working closely with British-based Mercedes team to build a yacht capable of defeating the current holders, Emirates Team New Zealand.

The link-up between the two teams comes via Ineos, which owns a third of the F1 team and is the main backer of Ineos Britannia. The sailing team will be based at Mercedes' headquarters in Brackley, leaning on the engineering resources of various departments via the F1 team's Mercedes Applied Science division.

Mercedes is expecting to have as many as 50 people working on the early design process of the yacht once the regulations, date and location for the 37th America's Cup are agreed in mid-November by New Zealand and Great Britain. Mercedes' chief technical officer, James Allison, who recently took a step back from the F1 side of the company, will be the technical lead on the yacht project.

Shouldn't Mercedes be focusing on F1, not yachts?

While the project has an obvious commercial tie-up via Ineos, Mercedes is also keen to make the project work for the engineering benefit of the F1 team. The America's Cup is often known as 'F1 on water', and clear links can be made between the hydrodynamics that allow a racing yacht to "fly" on its foils in the sea and the aerodynamics that keep an F1 car pinned to the track.

But Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff says the joint project will offer more than just a new revenue stream for the team through Mercedes Applied Science.

"We have had situations where engineers said, we have done this for seven years -- and many were even longer -- with seven world championships and they are asking where the next challenge is," Wolff said. "And it doesn't go any bigger than the challenge of winning the America's Cup as Challenger of Record.

"You are being the underdog, so you need to do an even better job. So that is of benefit because we retain the ability in-house and they are not going elsewhere -- within the industry or outside. Some of the people throughout the departments have said this is a nice challenge that they would like to take up for the next three or five years and gain some understanding, which probably can be deployed back into Formula One.

"It's almost like an activity that is so competitive that you need all your cognitive and intellectual concentration and that becomes an advantage when you are looking back into Formula One and it takes you out of your comfort zone."

Part of the reason the Mercedes team can afford to lend significant resources to the America's Cup campaign is thanks to Formula One's new budget cap this year. The introduction of a $145 million spending cap in 2021 forced the team to make cuts in its design and engineering departments, but by shifting staff to a non-F1 project outside the cap they can continue to work for the team.

"From a cost cap point of view, this team was bigger last year than you could afford in a cost cap this year and that means a certain amount of our resources is able to work on this type of project," Allison said. "As the rhythm of the Cup campaign requires it, hopefully it will intermesh adequately well with the corresponding demands that happen over in F1 land, so all the skill that we have here can be brought to bear."

Mercedes Applied Science also works on other projects, including the design and optimisation of road bikes, running shoes and Ineos' off-road vehicle the Grenadier. Wolff said the decision to diversify the business away from F1 came from looking at the success of sports franchises in the U.S.A..

"We looked at this pretty early because I'm always keen to learn from other sports leagues and when you look over the ocean at the most developed American sports leagues - the NBA and the NFL - these guys have diversified into real estate and into the hospitality business by the sheer fact that they are having a stadium," Wolff said. "And I think for us the logical next step is diversifying into engineering. We have created all this I.P. that we have never deployed on any other vehicle other than a racing car.

"We have never monetised any of the I.P. that exists here, and you are talking billions of spend into technology in a Formula One team, so that's why it sounds pretty logical that other teams are also looking at that space.

"But Mercedes Applied Science is not a commercial engineering entity. We are not pitching actively for engineering jobs, but we want to work with people who want to break records or win championships in land, sea, air and space. We have seen how the most challenging of all racing, the pinnacle comparable to Formula One, and this is not in the pursuit of margin, but more in the pursuit of learning and diversification for the benefit of Formula One.

"In the same way, a great new project for engineers that have learned their laurels in Formula One but they want to look at something different. Having said that, it needs to stand on its own commercial legs.

"It's our way of diversifying into other business areas, but we need to make sure that we are a contributing partner with the same ambition that we have in Formula One racing but without distracting from any of the two activities: they must run in parallel.

"We don't want to read the headline in three years that since we have started sailing we haven't been winning on the road. That must not happen."

How will Mercedes F1 technology make a yacht go faster?

While Allison will be the technical lead on Ineos Britannia's America's Cup campaign, German naval designer Martin Fischer will lead the design concept. As tempting as it is to imagine shapes from Lewis Hamilton's F1 car emerging on a racing yacht, the reality is that Mercedes' engineering know-how will more likely contribute to parts of the boat you can't see.

"Areas which are harder for America's Cup teams to do but are the meat and drink of an F1 team are all the systems that we have in place to know, for example, that if you want to put a hydraulic pipe down a certain length of something, how far away to keep all the other things so it doesn't fret on the pipe and how often down the pipe do you need to support it so it doesn't bounce around so much and the type of equipment that we have to inspect stuff so that we know that what is designed is what we built and are assembling," Allison said.

"All of the design standards that have been painfully learnt and written into a procedure in an F1 team can now be picked up and used by the community of engineers that is Britannia. That sort of stuff is pretty valuable.

"When you want all your good hydrodynamic and aerodynamic ideas to come true - i.e. the things that are coming from the marine folk of the team, backed up by the capable bodies that are working with them - then the boat has to be assembled on time and to the right qualities, it must not break down on the water so the sailors can learn while they are sailing it, so I think the maturity of the Mercedes Formula One team provides a really functional environment for the design engineers to then create designs that ought to be reliable and work.

"Hopefully we then build enough raw performance in to the boat to make it a competitive boat as well as reliable boat."

Allison added: "We hope we properly understand that being good at racing cars doesn't mean you are good at making yachts. What we wish to do is to learn from people that are good at doing yachts the manner in which we can best help.

"So my opening conversations with Martin were to try and assess the strengths and weaknesses of the previous campaign inside Ben's team, the strengths and weaknesses of the campaign Martin was involved with in with Luna Rossa [the runner up at the 36th America's Cup], to try to figure out how we can amplify the strengths and mitigate the weaknesses.

"And to see where there are areas of opportunity, like the engineering standards that we have is stuff that any engineering group can happily pick up and fall on like manna from heaven to just say that's work we don't need to do, can we just use that?

"To specifically try to get the likely key features, because we don't know a location or the timing yet, but what are the likely key features and what sort of level of force are we going need."

These Formula 1 Drivers Are Still Racing Fast, Just on Water

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Sergio Pérez get a taste of the SailGP series and discover that speed is relative.

yacht formula 1

By John Clarke

On a recent sunny September day in Saint-Tropez, where the French SailGP race was taking place, Max Verstappen and Sergio Pérez climbed aboard a speedy high-tech $4 million sailboat.

The drivers for the Red Bull Formula 1 team had little idea what to expect when they took turns settling into the cockpit of the United States SailGP F50 foiling catamaran, one of the nine team boats that race in the global sailing series, now in its third year. Neither man had ever sailed.

With the veteran Australian skipper Jimmy Spithill guiding them, the drivers took turns on the American boat for three exhibition races as they squared off against the Australian boat led by Tom Slingsby . Verstappen, the reigning Formula 1 champion who is on the brink of winning the title again, took the wheel on his turn, while Pérez declined, not feeling comfortable enough at the helm, Laura Muma, a spokeswoman, said.

Verstappen, in a video , appeared uneasy at first as he clutched the sides of the cockpit when foiling and made clumsy, toddlerlike steps across the netting span between the two hulls as the boat turned.

The adjustment to racing on the water and specifically foiling, when the boat lifts out of the water and rides on its hydrofoils, is understandable, Spithill said.

“We’ve had all sorts of athletes on the boat,” he said. “They are all shocked by how weird of a sensation it is when they swap sides when you’re sailing, especially when you’re foiling. Until you get on the water and experience it, there’s nothing you can say to them. But he [Verstappen] did well.”

Verstappen said he most enjoyed the balletic manner of the crew.

“It’s very different,” Verstappen said. “You can’t compare the speed. But when you reach the speeds on the water it feels really impressive. I like to see the guys working together to go as fast as possible and tuning it to perfection.”

Hitting high speeds on the water, where these boats can reach 55 knot s, about 65 miles per hour, feels different than doing the same on the track, Pérez said, on which the racecars go more than 200 m.p.h.

“I never imagined it was this challenging,” Pérez said. “Watching them on TV, it doesn’t look like it’s such an extreme sport. It was something unique. We are doing some racing, but not on the track — on the water. Like every sport, when you see it from the outside, it is so different than when you actually jump into it. It is so impressive. I have a lot of admiration for what these guys do.”

Pérez also noticed how the crew kept calm as they communicated.

“These guys are pretty chilled out,” he said. “The atmosphere they have is really nice. It’s something that Formula 1 misses sometimes. Formula 1 is too focused, and people are too much on their own. Here, everyone is really relaxed and gets on well.”

Slingsby said both sports were similar in that they were extreme.

“I like to think our sport is an extreme sport — maybe not as extreme as their sport,” he said, adding that it might have proven more extreme if they had had better wind on raceday.

The Americans beat the Australians, in light winds. “It was like we were sort of stuck in first gear today. But Max and Checo got a win. Not bad,” Spithill said, referring to Pérez by his nickname.

“It was enough for us,” Pérez said.

The U.S. SailGP team also races under the Red Bull banner. Verstappen and Pérez were attending during a break in preparation for the Italian Grand Prix. The drivers were seeing how the sailors race, communicate and apply the massive amount of data generated by their analytic systems that help optimize performance.

They also wanted to test the validity of SailGP’s claim of being Formula 1 on the water. Russell Coutts, the chief executive of SailGP , said the drivers recognized parallels between the two sports.

“These guys have great experience, and they have the best drivers in the world,” Pérez said. “In that way, they are like Formula 1.”

Spithill said the two sports were now more alike.

“In the past, we couldn’t really say that we were comparable,” he said. But now we are, with the F50, and the speeds we’re doing on the water, and when you look at the tech and data.”

SailGP and Oracle Red Bull Racing, Verstappen and Pérez’s team, rely on the same analytic system to provide data to help improve race strategies and allow the teams to make split-second decisions in real time. Each F50 sailboat has 800 sensors that transmit 3,000 pieces of data per second to the control room, Coutts said.

“There’s a lot of information, and that’s partly why response time is really critical,” Coutts said. “If you slightly blow it with your response time, then you’ll lose. It’s pretty critical that the teams get good at analyzing their data quickly — it’s what the coaches are focusing on now a lot.”

Unlike Formula 1, SailGP shares its data with other teams to make the racing more competitive and the margins of winning closer, he said. Formula 1 teams are famously secretive with their information. “Max and Checo were really intrigued about that,” Coutts said.

“You can always learn from other sports,” Verstappen said. “Communication is a big part of their sport and our sport. You can learn a lot about the way you are talking to people.”

Asked how racing a Formula 1 car and communicating to the pit crew were different from racing a sailboat and communicating to the crew and support team, Verstappen laughed.

“If I had to deal with that, I would have thrown someone in the water,” he said. “It’s just very different. For us, there is only one person in the car. That’s what we work with. I find it interesting how everyone communicates and has their own roles, and try to extract the most out of it.”

For an even swap, the teams have discussed the possibility of Spithill driving a Formula 1 racecar in October at the United States Grand Prix in Texas.

Coutts chuckled at the thought.

“I’m sure Jimmy would like that to happen,” Coutts said “I think it’s more likely he’d just do that on the simulator. You wouldn’t want to send an F50 athlete into a Formula 1 car all by themselves. I’m pretty sure of that.”

Charter Yachts gather for Monaco F1 Grand Prix

By Steph Loseby   24 May 2023

Getting ready for all the thrill and action of the Monaco F1 Grand Prix 2023 , a dazzling fleet of 122 luxury superyachts are gathering in Port Hercules, Monaco ahead of the 80th edition of the world-famous street circuit race through Monte Carlo.

Heralding the start of the Mediterranean summer season, the  Cannes Film Festival began on May 16 and as the glamorous event draws to a close, the high-profile superyachts in town for the occasion begin migrating eastwards along the coast, making their way to Monaco in time for the next big date on the event calendar: the Monaco F1 Grand Prix . 

Taking place across four days from Thursday 25 - Sunday 28 May, the race brings the South of France alive and promises to be a thrilling spectacle for avid Formula 1 fans, with plenty of VIP social events for the SuperyachtSet to enjoy.

yacht formula 1

Demand for the Formula One event has proved so popular that every berth in the glamorous Port d’Hercules has been filled weeks ago, with only a few exclusive F1 hospitality packages up for grabs for those wishing to attend.

Things have changed this year as Formula One has taken control of who issues the berths, and with the number of applications massively outweighing the number of spots available for trackside viewing, only a selection of luxury yachts under 55m were lucky enough to secure a prized berth. 

As normal, the larger yachts of around 70m are berthed at the T-Dock whilst additional larger superyachts are berthed in Zone 2. This area provides charter guests with a much greater degree of privacy, yet they will find they are still surrounded by the electric atmosphere of the event. 

We take a look at some of the most exciting superyachts available for charter at this year’s Monaco Grand Prix.

The largest superyacht charter to soak up the atmosphere of this year’s Monaco Grand Prix is the 126m (414ft) yacht OCTOPUS . Bertherd further out of the port in Zone 2, charter guests onboard this Lürssen yacht will be able to experience the thrills of the race in total comfort and privacy.

luxury charter expedition yacht OCTOPUS

Boasting a large aft swimming pool surrounded by loungers and a full cocktail bar, a cinema suite and superb wellness amenities, the luxury expedition yacht provides guests with an abundance of spacious areas to chill out and relax as they enjoy the race weekend. 


Situated along the T-Dock, alongside an array of larger 70m superyachts, is the  73m (239ft) Lurssen yacht CORAL OCEAN . Home to a voluminous sundeck replete with a pool, bar and plenty of seating, guests can enjoy total outdoor living perfection as they sip cocktails, lounge in the luxe seating area and watch tenders whizz by with show-goers. 

yacht formula 1

Additional yacht highlights include her large beach club and extensive spa facilities which guests can make the most out of during the race weekend. With a crew of 22 on hand to provide outstanding service onboard, superyacht CORAL OCEAN is the ultimate yacht for any luxury yacht charter vacation or event. 

Also berthed along the T-Dock, the iconic 71m (239ft) charter yacht TITANIA is just moments away from the action. Conceived by industry-leading designers, superyacht TITANIA is a firm favorite among her guests and an enduring charter icon.

yacht formula 1

Fusing opulent design with an effortless indoor-outdoor lifestyle and a wealth of modern amenities, the motor yacht is perfectly suited to entertaining on a grand scale and makes a great platform on which to host event charters . Home to an expansive beach club, a full-beam observation lounge and a well-appointed sundeck, there is a wealth of space across her four decks in which guests can relax, dine and socialize, all while soaking up the heady atmosphere.


Bagging a spot trackside in Zone 1, the 54m (176ft) PERSEFONI I is in prime position for the race. Refitted in 2021, the Admiral Yachts superyacht is in turnkey condition to host charter guests at the adrenalin-fuelled Monaco Grand Prix and more Mediterranean yacht charter vacations this summer.

luxury charter yacht PERSEFONI I

For those looking for more privacy during the race weekend, this can be found on her vast upper deck, which features an additional Jacuzzi, full bar and observation lounge, as well as a wealth of convivial social spaces and dining options.


Situated trackside on the straight in Zone 1, the 44m (146ft) charter yacht PANDION PEARL is berthed at an unbeatable location for witnessing the heart-stopping action of the race.

yacht formula 1

Accompanied by exceptional hospitality provided by Captain Jean-Marc and his dedicated crew, the luxurious Sanlorenzo yacht offers guests a sweeping selection of sumptuous living areas laid out invitingly to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere onboard. Combining sophistication and elegance, the yacht is the perfect platform to enjoy the electrified atmosphere from the comfort and ease of a trackside berth. 

Also soaking up the social atmosphere in Monaco this weekend is the 60m (196ft) SCOTT FREE and the 55m (180ft) superyacht LOON who are ready to enjoy the excitement of this year's Grand Prix.

Aside from Monaco, the only other Formula 1 circuit to feature trackside berths is the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix , which takes place at Yas Marina on 24 -26 November 2023. Set to provide a fitting finale to the Formula 1 season, the event is the perfect opportunity to charter a luxury superyacht and witness the crowning of the F1 Champion 2023. With an abundance of VIP hospitality packages and after-race entertainment on offer here too, charter guests can enjoy the race weekend in style.

The SailGP Final Was Held in San Francisco Harbor this weekend

SailGP, the extreme Formula One version of yacht racing, ended its second season yesterday, with the Australian team claiming the championship over teams from Japan and the USA. The final weekend of the series involved multiple collisions, challenging winds and even a whale on the racecourse that forced a restart to the championship final race.

SailGP uses 50-foot foiling F50 raceboats that can reach speeds of 61 mph. Add in the boats’ pinpoint turning abilities, athleticism of the five racers who have to leap across the boat at 55-plus mph, white-knuckle race maneuvers and crashes, and the sport has attracted gatherings of thousands of spectators during its 10-race series around the world.

The SailGP series was set up as an alternative to the much slower sport of monohull racing, modeled after other professional franchise sports like the NFL and MLB with dedicated teams from different countries.

Despite the teams accruing points all season, last weekend’s series was a winner-take-all event.

After two days of racing, Tom Slingsby’s Australia SailGP was victorious. The lead up to the final race was defined by two dramatic collisions: Rookie Spanish driver Jordi Xammar crashed into the stern of the US team’s catamaran and tore a hole in it. That forced the US team to attempt frantic, on-water repairs before the Grand Final. In another race, the teams from France and New Zealand also collided.

“They can sail four times faster than the wind,” America’s Cup guru and SailGP founder Russell Coutts told Robb Report recently . “There’s an element of danger we’re not trying to disguise.”

In the final race, the US team took an early lead, but the race was abandoned after a whale was sighted on the course. In the restart, Australia took the lead and dominated throughout. The team claimed a $1 million prize for the season. “More important than the money is that Australia came out on top and we can call ourselves the best in the world,” said Slingsby after the race. “Money comes and goes and glory lasts forever, I know that’s a saying, but we really feel it right now.”

Jimmy Spithill, leader of the US team, was disappointed but gracious. “At the end of the day you really have to credit the Aussies. They have been the benchmark team all season and to come back and do it back to back. It’s very impressive, they deserve the win,” he said in the post-event press conference.

Part of SailGP’s mission is to promote ocean protection—hence, restarting the race when the whale appeared—and sustainability. An important, secondary contest that took place during the season was the Impact League, which measured sustainability efforts by each team, from the carbon footprint of their boats, to how they travel to events, to measuring use of plastic.

New Zealand’s team claimed the Impact League title, handing over the $100,000 prize to the Live Ocean foundation. Great Britain and Australia won $35,000 and $15,000 respectively for second and third place, and donated the money to their Race to the Future partners.

Season three of SailGP will begin in Bermuda on May 14 and 15. Ten teams, including newcomers Switzerland and Canada, will take part in the third season. Events in Chicago, Plymouth, Copenhagen, Saint-Tropez, Cádiz-Andalucía, Dubai, Christchurch have been scheduled, with the final happening again in San Francisco.

Formula One world champion Fernando Alonso on his Sunreef 60 Power Eco catamaran

Formula One world champion Fernando Alonso on his Sunreef 60 Power Eco catamaran

Formula One driver Fernando Alonso tells BOAT International about his love of the water and decision to purchase a 60 Sunreef Power Eco catamaran, currently in build at Sunreef Yachts.

Was the sea a big part of your life growing up?

Absolutely. I need to have the sea in my life. I grew up in the north of Spain in Oviedo and every summer, or every day that I could, I went to the coast to enjoy the beach and the sea. Now I follow the coast when I choose where to live: I live in Dubai; I live in Monaco; I live in Spain.

What drew you to catamarans?

I discovered catamarans two years ago with Sunreef. It was a catamaran that was more than a catamaran – like a small villa on water. On a catamaran you have these very big spaces inside and compared to monohulls. I started chartering boats in summer in between races and at the beginning, I was just thinking of chartering the boat. Then recently I moved to Monaco, living on the coast again. I watch the port from my window every morning and started dreaming about having my own boat. 

What do you like best about spending time on the water?

I live with very high adrenaline on race days and I'm always in a Formula One car on the circuit or travelling around the world. When I spend time on the catamaran it is completely the opposite. I slow down my life and I go like in slow motion, so I can really enjoy every second of the day and every hour and every meal on board... and every sleep.

Why did you choose the Sunreef 60 Power Eco?

I chose the power version of the Sunreef 60. I do not plan at the moment to go very far from Monaco or very far from the Mediterranean. I will have always a limited number of people on board, only a few friends or family and the Sunreef 60 felt like a perfect size. On the Eco, there was no discussion for me. I think sustainability plays a big part in my values and my thoughts at the moment and I think it makes perfect sense with being in the water and being in the middle of the Mediterranean and taking care of that sea that we love.

What does your ideal day on a boat look like?

Not waking up too early. I like to sleep in the mornings, totally relax have a good breakfast and spend some time in the water. Then, a light lunch, because soon after I will probably get on some of the water toys and spend time playing around with different things. My ideal day ends with enjoying some music with friends and preparing dinner – ideally a BBQ or something on the flybridge.

Where will you take your new catamaran?

My first destinations this summer will be in the Med – South of France, Corsica, Sardinia – potentially Greece. That’s also the good thing about the solar panels on the Sunreef Eco line, you have this unlimited range.

F1 genius Newey reveals SLOWER design in upcoming documentary

F1 genius Newey reveals SLOWER design in upcoming documentary

yacht formula 1

Red Bull chief technical officer Adrian Newey has revealed that he is building a 90-foot sailing yacht alongside his illustrious career in Formula One.

Despite his success in designing F1 championship-winning cars , Newey views yacht construction as a way to challenge and exercise his engineering skills in a different realm.

A new documentary about him sheds light on this lesser-known aspect of the mastermind's life , showcasing his passion for sailing and his pursuit of creating a vessel capable of circumnavigating the world at a leisurely 14mph.

yacht formula 1

Newey: Yacht-building is a different challenge

“We are tailoring an existing design, but it’s for a very different outcome,” Newey said.

“For what we want, which is a boat which is genuinely a blue water cruiser, we could go on cruises, then possibly around the world.

“The beauty about motor racing is that there’s only two things that count – how quick it is and whether it’s reliable or not.

"Building a live-aboard sailing yacht is much more subjective in terms of the overall pleasure versus performance and usability.”

A landmark moment

yacht formula 1

As it happens, this isn't Newey's first foray into the sailing world.

In 2015, the Red Bull engineer assisted Ben Ainslie in his quest to secure the prestigious America's Cup.

Newey says that the inaugural launch of his new yacht will mark a significant milestone in his personal life.

“Seeing the splash after she emerges from the build shed will be a big landmark,” he added. “It’s all personal, and that’s the great thing about building a boat from new.”

The documentary 'Adrian Newey, building my Oyster' is set to be released in January 2024.

This Whole Yacht-Watching Experience For The 2022 F1 Miami Grand Prix Looks Poorly Thought Out

In a desperate attempt to prove america worthy of european racing, there’s a new f1 yacht club in town… in miami, florida… on land.

Image for article titled This Whole Yacht-Watching Experience For The 2022 F1 Miami Grand Prix Looks Poorly Thought Out

Formula 1 in Monaco is a fantastical pinnacle of excellence when it comes to racing and showing off the copious amount of money the European series attracts. Many have dreamed what it would be like to grace the decks of the elite, fancy-ass glass of champagne in hand, to watch an F1 car take the Picsene curve in real time. Many, instead, wish upon a star, wishbone, genie lamp, etc., that they could make friends with one of those yacht owners and make one’s Formula 1 dreams of watching Monaco from a yacht come true.

Instead, we find ourselves always late to a good yacht party, but that’s because we can’t afford a yacht, and no one is extending an invite our way anytime soon. However, if you can afford a yacht in these United States of America, it’s a good time to consider getting one and bank on The F1 Miami Grand Prix’s man-made lake that’ll support yachts. At least, I think that’s what it’s supposed to do.

A photo posted from Front Office Sports on Twitter , originally on the Miami GP’s website , shows a rendition of where these yachts will be chilling. Even though Miami itself runs along the coast of the Atlantic, the track itself is not along that oceanic coastline. So, in the hopping yachting hotspot, planners found a way to include the city’s yacht life, by creating an exclusive club and an accompanying dock along the man-made lake you see above.

Here’s a digital tour of the plan:

While those of you without tickets could look at these yacht prices, gather a dozen of your friends, and find a way to afford this yacht experience, I haven’t been able to uncover how you can do the yacht, without a ticket for the Miami GP.

Also, again, look at that photo. That lake… has a fraction of the yachts you see in Monaco. And there’s another problem: there’s no way to sail in or out. It’s entirely landlocked. So my guess, you rent a yacht and get it dropped into the lake. And the space on that tiny lake is limiting.

Image for article titled This Whole Yacht-Watching Experience For The 2022 F1 Miami Grand Prix Looks Poorly Thought Out

With a closer look – see? There’s a handful of yachts. Maybe we can do a contest to guess how many yachts can fit onto the lake . I think putting any more than those nine yachts rendered there might be a stretch.

Meanwhile, t here’s a dozen sites still offering yachts for your viewing pleasure for the 2022 Miami Grand Prix race in May… but I’m at a loss as to how they can accommodate even those dozens of yachts. There was also a package offered exclusively through F1 Experiences, the Luxury Yacht Dyna , which is sold out. Oddly enough, that package includes a Grandstand seat. Why sit with the lesser folk when you can live it up with overpriced champagne and caviar on your yacht?

Call me jaded because I can’t experience the yachting dream myself, but this whole thing comes off as a poorly planned and  desperate reach to include the elite and make Miami, hell, the U.S., more showy than it really is. For the rest of you rich folk, good luck with your yacht, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

The superyacht world is speculating that Mark Zuckerberg just bought this 118-meter boat

  • The 118-meter superyacht Launchpad made her maiden voyage last week.
  • The yacht world is speculating that her owner is Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
  • Here's what we know about the luxury vessel.

Insider Today

In the world of superyachts , privacy is the most valuable asset. It can be next to impossible to discern the details of a superyacht transaction — and that's particularly true if the vessel in question is worth nine figures.

Yet some in the boat blogging world are speculating that Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg is the new owner of Launchpad, a megayacht currently moored in Fort Lauderdale, Florida after she made her maiden voyage from Gibraltar to St Maarten last week. Launchpad clocks in at 118 meters long, about nine meters shorter than Jeff Bezos' superyacht Koru .

The transaction could not be confirmed, with yacht world insiders declining to share what they know and representatives for Zuckerberg not responding to a request for comment from Business Insider. In the past, reports about Zuckerberg owning superyacht Ulysses have proven false.

Related stories

"It is Feadship's standard policy to never divulge any information about our yachts with reference to ownership, costs, or delivery, etc," Feadship, the ship's builder, wrote to BI. "Whether it is an 18-meter Feadship from the 1960s or a 118-meter Feadship from the 21st century, we do not share private information."

But Zuckerberg's name has been connected to Launchpad for a few months now, beginning in December when reports swirled that he visited Feadship's shipyard in the Netherlands.

Then, earlier in March, yachting bloggers like eSysman SuperYachts and Autoevolution started speculating that he officially snagged the boat, originally built for a sanctioned Russian businessman, at a $300 million price tag. (While that's a seemingly huge amount, it's still less than 0.2% of Zuckerberg's $177 billion net worth.)

Another clue that might point to US ownership is that the yacht bears the flag of the Marshall Islands, a US territory and commonplace for American buyers to register their ships, according to public marine tracking.

If Zuckerberg were to have bought Launchpad, he would join a cohort of superyacht-owning tech billionaires . Along with Bezos, the likes of Oracle cofounder Larry Ellison and Google cofounders Sergey Brin and Larry Page have purchased impressive boats with even more impressive amenities.

SuperYacht Times , an industry publication and intelligence platform, has some of the best images of the yacht. Photos show a swimming pool on her main deck and a large helipad.

While less is known of the interior, a vessel of her size can likely sleep dozens of guests and crew and may have amenities like an expansive gym where Zuckerberg could practice his jiu-jitsu or a spa with a massage area. We suspect there's also space for plenty of toys — which could include his viral hydrofoil foil .

Do you have any details about Launchpad or any other superyachts? Email reporter Madeline Berg at [email protected].

Breaking news, endorsements | missing hiker found dead near monterey county park water fall, endorsements | keeping up with the bezoses: mark zuckerberg buys a super yacht, reports say, a report says that zuckerberg’s luxurious new $300 million vessel was originally was commissioned by a russian oligarch who was the target of sanctions imposed after that country’s invasion of ukraine.

yacht formula 1

Given that Mark Zuckerberg enjoys a respectable 16th place on a list of the world’s richest people, he probably figured it was time for him to acquire one of the ultimate status symbols for the mega-wealthy — a super yacht.

A new report from The Sun said that Zuckerberg is now the proud owner of a $300 million vessel that he has christened “Launchpad.” The 387-foot-long vessel, which comes with a helipad and a $30 million companion boat, was seen docked this week at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with its unique chrome finish reflecting in the sun.

This purchase shows, among other things, that the Facebook and Meta founder and CEO has branched out from buying islands and building an underground complex to help him survive the apocalypse. Perhaps, he wants to cruise the Mediterranean this summer and be among the moguls who can play host to Leonardo DiCaprio.

The yacht definitely grants him admission to the watery playgrounds of such multibillionaires as Jeff Bezos, Larry Ellison, Bill Gates and any of the Russian oligarchs who haven’t been the target of sanctions imposed by the United States or its allies over Russia’s 2022 invasion of Ukraine.

In fact, Zuckerberg reportedly came by Launchpad due to the misfortunes of one of those oligarchs. The yacht originally was commissioned to be built by Vladimir Potanin, one of Russia’s richest men who is on multiple sanctions list, according to a report by Autoevolution.com , a transportation industry site. The yacht was known as Project 1010, and the shipbuilder in the Netherlands was legally barred from delivering it to Potanin when it was completed in 2022, though Autoevolution also said that Potanin was not the yacht’s actual owner.

The Sun reported that the yacht recently received “special permission” to be imported. It has since arrived in the United States, a couple months ahead of Zuckerberg’s 40th birthday on May 14 — which raises the question of whether he meant Launchpad as a birthday gift to himself.

It’s quite a gift: Launchpad can comfortably fit 24 guests aboard. It also requires a crew of 48 and is said to cost $30 million a year for upkeep and usage, according to Superyachtfan.com . But shelling out $30 million for maintenance a year shouldn’t be a problem for Zuckerberg, who reportedly earns between $6 million and $12 million a day, The Sun said.

But as spectacular as Launchpad sounds, super yacht fans might say it’s not as spectacular as Jeff Bezos’s super yacht, Koru. The $500 million sailing vessel features very tall masts, a swimming pool, a helipad and room for a second, smaller yacht. The most noteworthy thing about Koru is that Bezos commissioned a special sculpture to decorate its prow. It’s a “curvaceous winged goddess” that is said to bear a striking resemblance to his fiancee Lauren Sanchez.

The Amazon founder, his wife-to-be and the goddess figurehead spent much of last summer sailing around the Mediterranean, cruising from Spain to Croatia and hosting such famous guests as Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom and Usher. The couple also threw a lavish engagement party off the coast of Positano on Italy’s Amalfi coast, attended by another pack of famous friends, including Kris Jenner, Wendi Murdoch and, yes, Leonardo DiCaprio.
