Princess Mariana












Luxury Motor Yacht Princess Mariana was built in 2003 in the Danyard Aalborg in Denmark. She is a 258 ft superyacht which has six decks. This modern and stylish yacht is full of modern innovative features, has an impressive six decks, and can accommodate 12 permanent guests on board.

One of the most impressive features on board Princess Mariana is the Beach Club. This is a dry dock for the custom built tender which can be “flooded” when the tender is outside and forms a 12 metre swimming pool with underwater lighting and steps. In addition to this, the entire length of the starboard hull wall lowers to just above sea level, creating a large teak private sun terrace for the owner’s suite.

There is also a helipad on board - and when the helicopter has left, it becomes a golf driving range with a massive screen showing a host of well-known courses.

Princess Mariana is currently listed for sale with Engel & Volkers Worldwide. You can snap it up for a lousy $100,000,000.....but dreaming about it is free!
