Tour the World’s Biggest Superyacht

By Tim Nelson

superyacht in the water

If you’ve seen one superyacht, you’ve seen them all. At least that’s how it can feel when so many of the world’s largest privately owned seafaring vessels play it safe, offering little more than slight tweaks on the same cookie-cutter look. Hoping to break from those stale conventions, one ambitious designer has introduced a strikingly innovative concept for what would not only be the biggest luxury superyacht in the world but also undeniably the boldest as well.

It’s called Valkyrie , and its purpose is to shatter preconceived notions about the size, shape, and fundamental purpose of superyachts. The long-gestating project of Chulhun Park, chief designer for Riga, Latvia–based Latitude Yachts, the Valkyrie project aims to be a 751-foot floating entertainment hub, unlike anything the world has ever seen. If completed, it would shatter the superyacht length record of 591 feet currently held by Azzam , a boat that's believed to be owned by Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan, president of the United Arab Emirates.

a look at the side of a yacht in the water

The 751-foot-long Valkyrie would far surpass the length of the 591 foot-long yacht, Azzam , which currently holds the record for the world's biggest superyacht.

At first glance, Valkyrie seems to take its aesthetic cues from science fiction rather than existent superyacht design tropes. Its sleek yet surprising shape was inspired by deconstructivism, a postmodernist architectural movement that eschews harmony and symmetry in favor of warped unconventionality. Park says his interest in the work of deconstructivists, like that of the late Zaha Hadid, predates his career in yacht design, which might explain why he was able to effortlessly integrate its aesthetic hallmarks into the shape of Valkyrie . “Having seen too many conventional white yachts, which were vertically stacked like wedding cakes, I was determined to design a visually unique yacht which would stand out from a fleet,” Park says. “I was interested in manipulating a structure’s surface to create non-rectilinear shapes, which appear to distort and dislocate elements of shape.”

Valkyrie ’s exceptional design is made possible by cutting-edge tech that grants Park additional freedom and flexibility to play around with the yacht’s shape without sacrificing performance. If created, Valkyrie will incorporate a steel or aluminum Trimaran hull (in other words, a multihull vessel) first engineered by Palmer Johnson Yachts (where Park previously worked as a senior exterior designer) for use in its super sport series. This unique below-the-waterline construction minimizes drag during high-speed travel and boosts fuel efficiency by up to 50 percent, all while creating up to 30 percent of additional interior and exterior space. Additionally, the extensive use of Palmer Johnson’s carbon construction technology throughout Valkyrie reduces weight and allows for better sight lines from inside the boat.

man holding a model superyacht

Chulhun Park, chief designer for Latitude Yachts, holds a model of the Valkyrie superyacht.

Valkyrie would serve as a multifaceted space where guests can come aboard to explore things like a casino, theater, gallery, restaurants, and convention space. Park’s design will also incorporate elements such as “large windows and open areas” that offer the chance to experience the beauty and luxury of nature in addition to the onboard amenities. This concept achieves the dual purposes, which will be good news for anyone ready to spend the estimated $800 million price tag for owning the vessel.

Though Valkyrie is still in its conceptual stage, Park emphasizes that there is “genuine interest” in the project. And with ongoing advancements in design and technology, the largest, most distinctive superyacht might be ready to welcome you on board sooner than you’d think.

  • Share via Email

By Editorial Team   28 April 2020

Take a closer look inside the yacht from Below Deck Mediterranean Season 5, Spain edition: the 184'5 (56.2m) superyacht  'The Wellington' .

With some truly unique features including a cigar lounge and quirky 1920's interior theme, The Wellington  (also known as the Wellesley) is one of the most impressive yachts ever to feature on Below Deck Mediterranean.

She is also the largest yacht ever to star on the hit Bravo TV series.

Curious to take a look around? The Virtual Tour below will give you a sneak peek inside   Below Deck Mediterranean Season 5 superyacht the Wellington .

Virtual Tour inside superyacht The Wellington (aka The Wellesley)

The yacht was launched in 1993 by prestigious Dutch shipyard Oceanco.  A complete refit in 2016 ensures she remains modern, fresh and is equipped with all the latest facilities and technology to ensure a relaxed yacht charter vacation . 

She is the perfect host for the new season of Below Deck Mediterranean, as Captain Sandra Yawn explains in the video below. She is accompanied by Bosun Malia White and Chief Stewardess Hannah Ferrier as they give a tour of the yacht.

What's the real name of the below deck mediterranean season 5 yacht.

For the purpose of the show, the yacht in Below Deck Med Season 5 is called 'The Wellington.' In real life, the charter yacht is actually 'The Wellesley'. Often the names of the yachts on Below Deck will be changed; read our article  'Below Deck Yacht Real Names and Cost to Rent' for more information.

Great Gatsby-style Interiors

As you can see from the virtual tour, the yacht's interiors are seriously stunning. 

They have been created by world-renowned designer Donald Starkey, and the Art Deco theme is reflected across all areas of the superyacht.

The yacht's main salon can be found on the upper deck. An elegant nameplate greets guests when they step inside via the aft deck, and black and white photos on the wall add some character to the living space.

A color palette of light gray and cream creates a soothing ambiance, while wide windows let in plenty of light and air during the day. On the forward wall, a large TV screen with a range of on-demand movies allows the space to function as a movie theater.

Forward of the main salon is the formal dining salon, which seats up to 10 guests. 

The Club Lounge

guests who enjoy the finer luxuries in life will make great use of superyacht the wellesley club lounge where they can drink scotch as they cruise mallorca

The piece de resistance is a bespoke, glass-encased humidor which displays a range of vintage cigars.

On the bridge deck above, the yacht's classic club lounge is a beautiful and unusual touch not often seen on yachts. The salon has a timeless theme, with leather seating, a warm coffee color palette and noir photographs depicting historical icons smoking. 

The piece de resistance is a bespoke, glass-encased humidor to port. It showcases a huge variety of vintage cigars, and is flanked either side by decadent whiskey cabinets with snakeskin embossing and crystal glasses.

The space is more intimate than the main salon below, and benefits from an entertainment system and small study space.


The motor yacht offers accommodation for up to 12 guests in five cabins.

A master cabin on the owner’s deck offers incredible views, a king-size double bed and a walk-in closet. A small vanity and bijou lounging area ensures the principal charter guests are totally catered to.

Adjoining the master cabin is a decadent en-suite finished in gold-veined black marble with a sit-down shower and his and hers sinks. Not including the en suite and walk-in closet, the master suite spans 40 square metres.

Close to the Owner's cabin, the nanny’s cabin is also conveniently located on this deck. It features twin beds and ensuite bathroom.

The remaining cabins are situated on the lower deck and include a 30sqm full-beam VIP Cabin with king-size double bed, a spacious walk-in closet and a generous bathroom en suite including a separate shower and a separate head.

There is a Queen- size cabin to Starboard and Twin cabin to Port; both benefit from ensuite facilities.

even the vip cabin in superyacht the wellington is awe inspiring with a delicate styling that will make all of her guests relaxed and feel at home as they cruise the Mediterranean on a luxury yacht charter vacation

Sundeck pool with waterfall feature

The yacht has one of the largest volumes of open deck space for a yacht of her size class, and one of the favorite spot while on charter is the sundeck.

Here, a large pool offers the perfect spot for lying back and soaking up the sights. It has an innovative 'spillpool' feature, with a waterfall that feeds fresh water into the tub. 

As ever, we can expect to see the yachties from Below Deck Med enjoying the jacuzzi to the fullest after big crew nights out!

As well as the pool, the sundeck also boasts a large alfresco dining arrangement, a variety of sunloungers and a barbecue. 

Outdoor barbecue

The Wellington is one of the few Below Deck yachts to feature an alfresco barbecue grill on deck. We're keeping our fingers crossed that new chef Kiko Lorran will be putting it to the test and whipping some gourmet delights on the barbecue.

Ample alfresco areas including generous beach club

Guests on Below Deck Mediterranean will find no shortage of places to enjoy the sunshine on board the Wellington. As well as her sundeck, she also has a large lounge area on her upper deck aft, which is adjoined by a  sunpad spread.

 There is an alfresco dining set-up on her main deck aft, where guests can enjoy their meals while still feeling connected to the sea and their surroundings.

The finishing touch is the beach club, which is a welcome retreat where guests can sit back and relax in the shade or bask in the sun on the swim platform. 

The yacht has an excellent selection of water toys and accessories, which includes Seabobs and Jet-skis. All of these can easily be accessed via the swim platform, and will ensure hours of fun splashing in the water.

Virtual yacht tours.

Published 10 February 2022

Burgess was ahead of the curve and, as ever, leading the industry when we started exploring virtual 360 yacht tours in 2017, to give our clients a more enjoyable, engaging digital experience. You can walk the decks without taking a step on dozens of yachts for sale, at your leisure or with an expert broker leading the tour, sharing their knowledge and fielding your questions.

yacht inside tour

Whether on-screen or using a VR headset for the fully immersive experience, these tours enable you to navigate your way through every guest space on every deck, inside and out. This means you can appreciate the spaces for yourself, how they flow together, the interior design, what facilities there are, what features you might want to add and where you could add them, and how well the yacht has been looked after.

While you are free to tour the yacht on your own, we strongly recommend a broker-led tour. The broker knows the yacht inside and out as they have been on board and have access to our global yacht database. The broker knows the provenance and maintenance history, they know the captains and their operational knowledge of the yacht, the time and cost involved in refitting, upgrading or refurbishing the yacht - a huge number of insights relating to potential ownership. These are just some of the advantages of a broker-led tour.

Our digital tours are just one of the reasons why Burgess is the world's No.1 yacht broker . Owners who want to sell come to Burgess because our knowledge of the yachts and ability to market them creatively in so many ways helps them achieve the best possible outcome. It's what we do.

  To arrange your broker-led 360 virtual tour of one of our yachts for sale, please contact a broker via the usual channels. If you would like a virtual tour of a yacht that has yet to be shot, do please let us know and we can either arrange for a shoot or organise a live virtual walk-through tour with the captain and broker.

Alaska is a world-renowned sport fishing destination, and Southeast Alaska provides year-round fishing opportunities for a variety of species.  And if catching Alaskan rock fish, halibut, or salmon is on your bucket list, look no further.  Your crew knows these waters inside and out and can provide access to waterways, hidden coves and inlets that larger vessels can’t reach.  All gear, tackle, and expertise will be provided and your chef will happily prepare your catch for dinner that evening.

Whale Watching and Birding Beyond Your Imagination

If whale watching is on your Alaska ‘wish’ list, you’ve discovered the perfect venue for seeing these magnificent creatures up close.  Southeast Alaska is well known as feeding grounds for a number of whale species including orcas, humpbacks, gray whales, and the occasional minke whale.  Bubble net feeding is more common here than in most destinations, and the sight – and sound – of a whale breaching is a spectacular sight you’ll never forget.

Alaska’s Inside Passage is also a birder’s paradise as there are hundreds of different species to discover.  In addition to almost-daily bald eagle sightings, spend some time next to a bird rookery and see how many species you can check off your list.  Colorful puffins are a favorite though you may also see oystercatchers, goshawks, guillemots, murres, gulls, and more!

Get up Close to a Glacier!

No visit to Southeast Alaska is complete without spending some time near a tidewater glacier, and your private vessel, the M/Y Golden Eagle, can provide this up-close experience like no other.  Imagine a wall of ice, hundreds of feet tall before you as you take in its sheer immensity.  Keep your eyes peeled as you wait for the glacier to calve as huge chunks of ice break off and splash into the water below.  This is a sight – and sound – like none other you have ever experienced!

Take in these views from the yacht’s expansive viewing deck, with a glass champagne in hand.  Or for an even closer view, board a kayak and paddle around as you encounter icebergs floating in the sea.  With luck, you may even see some Alaskan harbor seals sunning themselves on them!

Explore Alaskan Wilderness on Foot: Tongass National Forest Hikes

When you’re ready to stretch your legs, a guided hike into Alaska’s lush forests is just the thing.  Surround yourself with the flora and fauna that make the Tongass National Forest their home with a secluded hike along a ridge.  Perhaps a beachcombing excursion along a secluded beach is more your style? Go for it!  There are even some natural hot springs hidden in the forest.  Soak in their warm waters as a reward for your day of active adventure before returning to your private yacht for one more evening of fine cuisine, hosted by your crew.

Disembark in Petersburg

Your private yacht journey on the M/Y Golden Eagle concludes today as you return to Petersburg.  Enjoy one last gourmet breakfast before bidding your hosts ‘farewell.’  A private transfer will be provided to the Petersburg Airport to begin your next adventure or for travel home.

Yacht Vessel

This 102-foot motor yacht provides the private, luxury experience of Southeast Alaska you’ve always imagined.  The Golden Eagle was custom built with a semi-displaced hull and underwater hydraulic stabilizers to ensure you travel through Alaska’s Inside Passage in comfort and style.  From its beautiful teak wood decks, to its 360-degree viewing points you are sure to enjoy all the luxury this private yacht has to offer.  The large, plush salon offers plenty of seating, or you may choose to visit with the captain in the fully-enclosed flybridge with wraparound seating.

Your private yacht features four gorgeous staterooms, each with walk-in closets, build-in dressers, and spacious en-suite bathrooms with full vanity and walk-in showers. Three staterooms have queen beds with an optional fold-down twin bunk.  The fourth stateroom has two twin beds and a third fold-down bunk if needed.

yacht inside tour

Departure Port

Most M/Y Golden Eagle itineraries begin and end in beautiful Petersburg Alaska.  Located on Mitkof Island, Petersburg is accessible by air and sea only – there is no road connecting it to the rest of Alaska.  Nearby LeConte Glacier, just 25 miles east by boat or floatplane, is Alaska’s southernmost tidewater glacier and the waters nearby serve as summer feeding grounds of hundreds of humpback whales.  Petersburg is the perfect starting point for an chartered adventure in Alaska’s Inside Passage.

Culinary Highlights

Your culinary experience will start as soon as you arrive to the ship, with a champagne greeting along with hors d’oeuvres to celebrate the journey ahead. Fresh seafood will be featured throughout the cruise, and you may even help to catch the seafood yourself!

Your Alaskan adventure will not only feature spectacular wildlife and scenery viewing, but will also provide a uniquely Alaskan culinary experience. The on board professional chef will prepare one culinary delight after another for you. Everything is prepared on board, and with the limited number of guests the chef can cater to any special food needs, diets, or allergies. You will enjoy learning from the chef as they prepare your meals, the galley is open to guests and interaction is encouraged.

Activities & Adventures

When not fishing or cruising, your personal, highly-trained crew will take you on many other adventures. From kayaking in hidden coves to hiking to remote waterfalls, there are activities for all. All of the adventures are custom tailored to meet the needs of each guest. Not a hiker? No worries, go for a shoreline exploration in one of the small boats while others hike. Never kayaked? Great! That will just make it that much more fun as the head guide with years of kayak experience takes you out and shows you the way to paddle. Guests from age 6 to 90 have kayaked, and all come back smiling.

Other possible activities (all included) are: beachcombing, birding, wildlife viewing, fishing, hiking, hot springs, kayaking, shrimping/crabbing, photography, flora, whale watching, and glacier viewing

I visited the Royal Yacht Britannia, the royal family's luxurious private cruise ship known as a 'floating palace.' Take a look inside.

  • The Royal Yacht Britannia was the royal family's private yacht from 1953 to 1997.
  • The ship is now a museum open to the public in Edinburgh, Scotland.
  • The tour shows the Queen's bedroom, state rooms used for entertaining, and crew bunks.

The Royal Yacht Britannia was the royal family's private yacht from 1953 to 1997.

yacht inside tour

With its many royal family vacations and official tours, the yacht logged over 1 million miles , the equivalent of one trip around the world for each of its 44 years at sea.

The Queen once said that "Britannia is the one place where I can truly relax."

yacht inside tour

The Labour government decommissioned the ship in 1997 due to its high operation cost of £11 million each year, Reuters reported . That's equivalent to about $23 million today.

At the decommissioning ceremony, the Queen  shed a rare public tear .

The ship has made several appearances in Netflix's "The Crown," including season five .

The yacht is now a museum open to the public in Edinburgh, Scotland.

yacht inside tour

On a recent trip to Scotland , I booked a ticket for the Royal Yacht Britannia museum, which costs £18.50 ($23) for adults.

The entrance is located inside the Ocean Terminal shopping center in Edinburgh.

Before boarding the yacht, visitors walk through a museum detailing the boat's history and connection to the royal family.

yacht inside tour

The five-story ship was a royal residence as well as a Royal Navy ship, with a full-time staff of more than 240 royal yachtsmen and officers.

The museum displays photos of the royal family's life aboard the ship, as well as items like crew uniforms.

Then, a walkway with more photos leads to the deck of the boat.

yacht inside tour

The ship is docked on the water just outside the shopping center.

I listened to the audio tour of the ship on my phone by scanning a QR code.

yacht inside tour

There were also separate listening devices available.

Each room of the ship had a number that you could type in and press "play" to hear about your surroundings in an array of languages.

The first stop was the bridge, the main control point of the yacht.

yacht inside tour

In this small space, officers navigated the seas and recorded data in the ship's logbooks.

Outside, the flag deck is the highest point on the ship.

yacht inside tour

Britannia had three masts, and different flags were used to communicate with other ships on the water.

The admiral's cabin and suite is the most spacious on the ship, aside from the royal apartments.

yacht inside tour

The admiral's accommodations featured a day room, bedroom, bathroom, and pantry. The sofa and armchairs in the dayroom are over 100 years old and came from the previous royal yacht, Victoria and Albert III.

The royal family often sunbathed, played deck hockey, or swam in a collapsible swimming pool on the Veranda Deck.

yacht inside tour

Part of the yacht's royal quarters, the deck was also used for receptions and group photos.

Prince Philip occasionally set up his easel on the deck to paint.

Overlooking the Veranda Deck, the Sun Lounge was one of the Queen's favorite rooms on the ship.

yacht inside tour

Queen Elizabeth would often take her breakfast and afternoon tea in the Sun Lounge.

The Queen's bedroom on the Royal Yacht Britannia featured bed linens that once belonged to Queen Victoria.

yacht inside tour

The embroidered silk panel above the Queen's bed, commissioned in 1953, cost £450 ($560, or $6,250 in today's money).

Her sheets were embossed with "HM The Queen."

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip had separate bedrooms connected by an adjoining door.

yacht inside tour

Each room had its own bathroom.

Philip's bedroom featured red linens, and he requested pillowcases without lace trim.

yacht inside tour

A button next to each of their beds would summon a royal steward.

Across the hall, the Honeymoon Suite was the only room onboard with a double bed.

yacht inside tour

The double bed was requested by then-Prince Charles when he honeymooned with Princess Diana in 1981.

The room was also used as a nursery when the royal children were young.

The Anteroom served as a recreational space for the officers, off-limits to the rest of the crew.

yacht inside tour

Officers would spend their time here listening to the radio and playing board games.

The royal family occasionally dined in the adjoining Wardroom.

yacht inside tour

Britannia's 19 officers ate meals here, accompanied by the Royal Marines Band.

Britannia has three galleys, which are still working kitchens today.

yacht inside tour

The galleys prepare food for the Royal Deck Tea Room and events hosted on the ship.

The Royal Deck Tea Room offers an extensive menu of soups, sandwiches, scones, and other treats for visitors to the museum.

yacht inside tour

The royal family once used the space to entertain guests and play deck games.

The state dining room is the largest room on the Royal Yacht Britannia.

yacht inside tour

Winston Churchill, Margaret Thatcher, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, Nelson Mandela, and many other world leaders dined here with the royal family.

The placement of each utensil was measured with a ruler.

Just off the state dining room, the Queen's sitting room served as her office.

yacht inside tour

Here, the Queen would meet with her press secretaries and prepare for royal visits.

On the opposite side of the hall, the Duke of Edinburgh had his own sitting room.

yacht inside tour

Both Philip and Charles used the room as a study. Philip kept a model of his first naval command, the HMS Magpie, above his desk.

The telephones connecting the sitting rooms to each other and their private secretaries' offices are identical to the phones used in Buckingham Palace.

The large Drawing Room and connecting Anteroom could accommodate up to 250 guests.

yacht inside tour

The Drawing Room featured an electric fireplace and cozy floral furniture. When it wasn't being used as a reception space during formal events, the royal family used it to relax and play games on the card tables.

Petty officers and Royal Marine sergeants kicked back in their living quarters, also known as the mess.

yacht inside tour

Petty officers would occasionally entertain the Queen and other royal family members here.

The crew bunks weren't as glamorous as the royal apartments.

yacht inside tour

Each bunk folded up into a seat, and crew members stored their possessions in lockers.

Britannia's NAAFI (Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes) shop sold souvenirs and sweets, as well as essentials like toothpaste.

yacht inside tour

Diana once bought Prince William a Britannia souvenir shirt from the shop. Today, it sells homemade fudge to museum guests.

The ship's sick bay and operating theater still feature the original furnishings from the 1950s.

yacht inside tour

The ship's doctor attended to crew members, while the Queen's royal surgeon traveled with her on voyages.

Britannia's laundry room could reach temperatures of 120 degrees Fahrenheit as it washed up to 600 shirts in one day.

yacht inside tour

The royal family's laundry was done on different days than the crew's laundry.

All of the clocks onboard the Royal Yacht Britannia are stopped at 3:01 p.m.

yacht inside tour

The clocks are frozen at the  time the Queen stepped off the ship for the last time  during its decommissioning ceremony in December 1997.

The tour concludes in a gift shop full of royal souvenirs.

yacht inside tour

Amid the Britannia-themed mugs, pens, and aprons, the gift shop also sold replicas of royal jewelry.

There's even a photo-op at the end of the tour where you can practice your royal wave.

yacht inside tour

The tour was full of surprising facts about royal life and travels, and I couldn't believe that we actually got to see inside Queen Elizabeth's bedroom on the ship. It's definitely worth a visit.

The new Four Seasons yacht will set sail in 2026.

Four Seasons has long set the gold standard for luxury accommodations on land and is renowned for its exquisite hotels that offer unparalleled comfort and service. Now, this legacy of luxury is extending its reach to the seas. In a groundbreaking move, Four Seasons Yachts , in collaboration with Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings Ltd and the esteemed Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri, is introducing an ambitious venture into luxury sea travel. Scheduled to set sail in 2026, this initiative promises an experience that transcends traditional cruising, offering voyages across the mesmerizing waters of the Caribbean and the historic coasts of the Mediterranean.

Alejandro Reynal, President and CEO of Four Seasons, expressed enthusiasm about bringing the brand's hallmark of guest-centered luxury to the high seas. According to Reynal, this expansion into yachting is a natural extension of Four Seasons' commitment to providing personalized, elegant, and comfortable experiences. The aim is clear: to redefine luxury hospitality, but this time, against the backdrop of the world's most stunning seascapes.

The suites are breathtaking.

The inaugural season of Four Seasons Yachts is poised to offer something truly special. With ten unique voyages planned, travelers will have the opportunity to explore over 130 distinct destinations across more than 30 countries and territories. Each itinerary has been meticulously crafted, allowing guests the flexibility to design their own sea adventure. From the lively atmospheres of Caribbean islands like Saint Barthélemy and Martinique to the cultural richness of Mediterranean gems, including the Greek Isles and Croatia, these voyages promise a blend of well-loved destinations and hidden treasures.

The spacious cabins have incredible views.

Accommodations aboard the yacht are set to be a marvel in themselves. Ninety-five suites, conceived by the creative minds of Fredrik Johannson at Tillberg Design of Sweden and Creative Director Prosper Assouline, are designed to be sanctuaries of tranquility at sea. Each suite, envisioned with elegant interiors, expansive views, and a residential feel, aims to provide guests with a sense of being at home away from home. Among these, the Funnel and Loft Suites stand out for their sheer luxury and space. They offer unique features such as splash pools, outdoor showers, and breathtaking panoramic views, setting a new benchmark for luxury accommodations on water.

The pool deck features a bar and lounge chairs.

Beyond the exquisite suites, the yacht will feature various amenities designed to cater to every guest's needs. With eleven dining options, a comprehensive spa and wellness center, a state-of-the-art marina, and an innovative pool area capable of hosting events, the yacht ensures a variety of experiences that enrich the journey.

“We’re building a stunning seafaring venture that will be enjoyed as a yacht experience rather than a cruise experience," says Thatcher Brown, chief commercial officer and head of joint operations at luxury shipping specialist Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings, the joint owner/operator of the Four Seasons Yachts brand. "The intrinsic value of Four Seasons brand leadership in luxury hospitality combined with the passionate pioneering spirit and expertise of the project team is manifested in the creation of truly special Four Seasons Yachts experiences."

Inside ex-MLB LF Gary Matthews Jr.'s former $22,000,000 custom-built Newport Beach mansion ft. infinity-edge swimming pool & yacht-filled waters

F ormer Los Angeles Angels left fielder Gary Matthews Jr. paid $3 million for land in Newport Beach in 2013, which he used to build a mansion with the help of architect Carlton Graham. In 2023, he put the mansion on the market for $22 million.

The entire house has beautiful, perfect matte finishes, with clerestory windows, imported limestone, and high-beamed oak ceilings. The four-bedroom, seven-bathroom property features a contemporary center-island kitchen, an open-area common room with a wall fireplace, and light-filled living areas.

A wine cellar with a tasting area, a glass-enclosed trophy room, a wet bar, and an office are located in the lower-level lounge inside the mansion. An infinity-edge pool, with a small courtyard entrance and spa, completes the lounging area outside the mansion.

Matthews has other homes in the same area, one of which is a single-level home in the Cameo Highlands that he put on the market for sale in 2014, with an asking price of $3.55 million last year.

Take a look at the video tour:

When Gary Matthews Jr. discussed the pressure of playing in the MLB

Gary Matthews Jr. is the son of Gary Matthews Sr., who played 16 seasons with five different teams in the big leagues. Sr. earned his career's only All-Star nod in 1979 and then joined the broadcasting team of the Philadelphia Phillies after hanging up his cleats in 1987 with the Seattle Mariners.

Speaking on the "Major League Beginnings" podcast in 2021, Matthews Jr. talked about how he handled the pressure of playing in the MLB after his father's amazing career:

"One of the really cool things my parents did for me at a very young age was they seperated family from the game. My mother explained to me that this is family business but the most important thing is family."

Furthermore, he thanked his parents and said:

"So, when your parents kind of set that up for you at 10 or 12 years old, it gives you an opporunity to see that look [this] is great but at some point this is going to end."

Gary Matthews Jr. spent 11 seasons in the MLB playing for seven different teams and produced some amazing highlight reels in the outfield, showcasing his athleticism and agility in the left field.

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

All aboard S.S. Facebook.

Mark Zuckerberg has reportedly gifted himself a $300 million megayacht, dubbed “Launchpad,” ahead of his 40th birthday.

The staggering 387-foot-long vessel was seen floating at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., after arriving at its berth earlier this week, The Sun reported Thursday.

Mark Zuckerberg.

The multi-layered luxury ship’s sleek exterior was designed by Espen Øino International and boasts a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure, according to SuperYacht Times.

Reportedly ranking as the 45th largest yacht in the world, the interiors are just as aesthetically pleasing and reportedly executed by Zuretti Interior Design company, a France-based company specializing in unique and custom yacht design.

The breathtakingly beautiful floater stands out with a navy blue theme matching an American flag perched proudly on its wood-paneled stern.

There are several outdoor areas where the social media maven will be able to relax with his family and the indoor levels feature glass paneling allowing for tons of natural light.

There also appears to be a helipad perfect for whenever the Facebook co-founder wants to travel to his vessel by air.

The Feadship-built yacht, built in 2022, can comfortably fit 24 guests aboard, requires a crew of 48, and is said to cost $30 million a year for upkeep and usage, according to Superyachtfan.com .

Boatworld insiders have been buzzing with speculation that Zuckerberg is the owner of the newly minted mega-cruise ever since it made its main voyage from the Netherlands last week.

The tech titan was spotted touring the Russian-commissioned megayacht in early March, though the impressive boat didn’t arrive stateside until this week due to sanctions, according to The Sun.

The website reported that Zuckerberg purchased the pricey yacht – along with its own $30 million partner boat — most likely as an early 40th birthday present to himself.

Mark Zuckerberg on a paddle board.

The boat reportedly traveled to Florida after being granted special permission to be imported just weeks ahead of Zuckerberg’s birthday on May 14.

Zuckerberg’s yacht is just 30 feet shorter than the length of fellow billionaire Jeff Bezos’ 417-foot megayacht Koru, which the Amazon boss snagged for a whopping $500 million.

Zuckerberg’s rep did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
