On board the Soaring, the extra luxury 68 metre superyacht by Abeking & Rasmussen
- 7 November 2022
Yes, the name of the “Quantum of Solace” mega yacht is the same as a 007 James Bond film. But in this case, it has nothing to do with the cinema.
Quantum of Solace is a 72.64 metre long mega yacht, built in 2012 by the Turkish shipyard, Turquoise Yachts. It was designed by the English H2 Yacht Design. It was originally designed for use as a luxury charter, thanks to its ample living space and fabled services. We saw it docked at the latest iteration of the Monaco Yacht Show.
On board are 7 suites, for a maximum number of 12 passengers. The full beam master cabin also includes an office. There are 18 crew members. Passengers can relax in the Turkish bath or in the well equipped spa. The pool is perfect for training, as is the fully equipped onboard gym. Otherwise passengers can relax in the hot tub.
Quantum of Solace has two Caterpillar engines, allowing it to comfortably sail at 15 knots and reach a maximum speed of 17 knots. Its maximum autonomy is 7 thousand miles at 12 knots, thanks to its 204 thousand litre fuel tanks.
There are a number of water toys, like the 6 metre waterslides, two WaveRunners, a Seabob and three tenders, including an 8-metre Limo Tender. There is also a helipad to the bow. Spending a week on holiday on the Quantum of Solace costs 560 thousand euros, plus expenses.
And why was this name chosen? Its first owner, the American billionaire John Staluppi, is a living legend in the boating industry, famous for collecting some of the fastest and most luxurious yachts in the world. His entire “fleet” has one thing in common: all his yachts are named after a James Bond film.
