The Santa Cruz de Tenerife Port has recently become a focal point for luxury yachting enthusiasts, drawing attention with its remarkable vessels. Among these, the Carinthia VII stands out, boasting features that underscore its global stature as a luxury yacht.
Priced at 95 million euros, the Carinthia VII is a 97.2-metre marvel, a collaboration between the famed Tim Heywood and Lürssen, launched in 2002. This yacht is a symbol of maritime sophistication, combining Lürssen’s naval architecture with Ellerhorst and Kreuter’s interior design expertise.
Constructed with steel, the Carinthia VII has a gross tonnage of 3,643 and spans six decks. It’s distinguished by its sleek, elegant design, especially notable in the “Carinthia Blue” hue of its hull. The yacht features discreetly hidden windows on the main deck that become visible as one draws nearer.
Powered by four 10,060 hp MTU diesel engines, it achieves a cruising speed of 20 knots and a top speed of 25 knots, with a range of 5,000 nautical miles at 18 knots. It also includes a touch-and-go helipad at the bow and accommodation for two dinghies.
The Carinthia VII, primarily intended as a family yacht, has been privately used by its original owner. It impresses with its spacious deck, measuring 18.8 metres in beam, and glass bulwarks that offer both safety and panoramic views.
Inside, the yacht features a practical and adaptable layout with bulletproof glass windows, 2.25 metres of headroom, and separate elevators for guests and crew. The lower deck includes a comprehensive spa and wellness area with direct water access.
This vessel can comfortably house up to 14 guests in eight opulent staterooms, including a dedicated owner’s deck, a VIP stateroom, a private study/lounge, a beauty salon, and six additional cabins. It is also equipped to accommodate up to 40 crew members.
