At 107-meters long and rumored to cost over $100 million, New Zealand businessman Graeme Hart can probably boast that he has one of most badass super yachts on the planet. And after watching this video it would be hard disagree with him:
The yacht is named Ulysses and was delivered to the billionaire in 2015 by the Norwegian shipbuilder Kleven Maritime. It is a MT5006 Expedition Support Vessel designed by Marin Teknikk, a naval architecture and marine engineering company that has its roots in offshore oil and gas vessels.
Ulysses is specially designed for longer expeditions in rough water, with a diesel electric propulsion system, a helideck and hanger, swimming pools, all the water toys you can imagine, and a large tender mounted on the bow. So basically everything you need to go anywhere in the world.
And if you’re not jealous already, just think that Hart is actually building a second yacht that is even bigger. 116 meters to be exact.
