Rich people, meet the yacht of your dreams: the J’Ade. It’s so luxurious that it even has a garage for a speedboat. Read on and find out all about it.
Don’t you just hate it when you can never find a good parking spot – in the middle of the goddamn ocean – for your speedboat next to your super yacht? It’s a problem that, fortunately/unfortunately (take your pick), not many of us have.
But it’s a very big (first world) problem nonetheless – a problem that the J’Ade has seemingly solved: it has a drive-in garage for its own speedboat.
Hailed as one of the most expensive luxury yachts in the world (at an estimated $60 million), the privately owned 196-foot J’Ade is the living embodiment of luxury living at sea.
It was built by CRN in Italy and delivered to her unnamed owner in 2013 who has, quite naturally, been the subject of envy for the past three years.
While swimming pools, helipads, and Jacuzzis are all common features on luxury yachts (which, by the way, are all naturally included on the stylish yacht), the J’ade is the first ever to feature a hydraulic-operated hatch which can store a Riva Iseo speedboat. And no tender lift’s required to hoist it out of the water – you simply drive it into the hatch (which can be used as an indoor ocean pool when it’s not being used by a 27-foot speedboat). It’s, essentially, a floating garage.
But that’s not the only reason it’s been making waves – get it? Making waves?
The yacht’s luxurious interiors – which include jade green accents (to make you feel “at one with the sea”), hardwood floors made out of wide strips of Afromosia, and white Tai Ping carpets – have been lauded at the 2014 Monaco Yacht Show where it was nominated in the Best Interior category only to lose to the Perini Navi yacht Grace E. It did, however, win the World Yacht Trophy at the 2013 International Boat Show in Ancona, Italy.
It took three years to build and features five cabins – a master cabin and four VIP cabins – as well as a gym, a mosaic-tiled hammam room, and an aquarium.
The J’Ade, which can accommodate up to 10 guests, has several indoor and outdoor living areas across all four decks, a dining area for 12, a central stairway, and an elevator, while a white Yamaha piano takes center stage in one of the many living spaces.
Meanwhile, the cabins feature terrace balconies and oversized windows that take advantage of the panoramic sea views.
The yacht was designed with the owner’s specific tastes in mind, and features a round bath in the marble master bathroom.
The J’Ade, which has space for up to 14 crew members who will attend to your every need, is the very epitome of luxury living at sea. And while owning a couple of luxury yachts is not uncommon among rich people all around the world, we can’t help but wish this one in particular belonged to us.
