Super-Yacht anyone?

27 Aug

…hmmm, don’t mind if I do, thanks very much!

So, the man and I are having a pre-baby hol in lovely, sunny Mallorca at the mo and by wonderful coincidence, it turns out that my old school friend Nina is just down the road in Puerto Portals where she is working as a hostess on Super-Yacht ‘TV’.

Not only was it very cool to met up with Nina, but it gave us a great opportunity to go and have a good old nose around the yacht – which was especially brilliant as I had done a bit of work for it last year designing all the on-board stationery and whatnots (a job I feel very fortunate to have got through Nina).

Turns out anyone out there with a spare €30 million can go out and get themselves one of these bad boys:

– that’s 45 meters of luxury cruising – or a €250,000 a week holiday, if you’re not so sure about the commitment of boat ownership…

We got a tour of the whole boat, which was absolutely beautiful and a look at the stationery I had deigned ‘in situ’ (sadly I can’t show any pics of the inside of the boat on here as it is privately owned property).

Each of the cabins had a leather box with all the stationery items inside:

The V.I.P. cabin had stationery in the beautiful wooden bureau:

Boat info all printed onto the stationery is placed on each of the beds before the guests arrive:

And… the best thing about super-yachts – MAHOOSIVE jars of Nutella:

Conclusion: super-yachts are good, but Nutella is better 😀

I’ll post some better pics of the stationery up here when I get home.

    I love mooching round Portals – it really is how the other half lives! My brother has a boat there – but substantially smaller 🙂
