His newest venture, Fleet Miami, lets members purchase blocks of credits to be exchanged for charter across a fleet of luxury yachts, many of which are part of Saylor’s personal collection.
Buy in to rent the 154′, five-stateroom “Usher,” the acclaimed 147′, Feadship “Harle” with its crew of nine, the 87′ “Moksha” or the more manageable 35-passenger, 36′ “Julia” for a quick cruise around Biscayne Bay. Crave a trip, not just a three-hour tour? Buy a seven-day charter through the Florida Keys for $70,000-$280,000, depending on yacht selection.
Carbon-fiber body panels have been fitted to give two extra inches of width, while wider fender flares allow for 23-inch wheels that have been forged, ceramic-coated, skinned with low-profile rubber and fitted to a lowered suspension. Plastic bumpers for the front and rear can be placed with or without the wider fenders, and the addition of a three-piece roof spoiler sits at the back. The 3.0-liter twin-turbo diesel V6 engine has been modified to now give an extra 31 horsepower equaling 323 hp and 501 pound-feet of torque. This allows it to reach 0 – 62 mph in 6.9 seconds rather than its original 7.2 second time. A wide range of interior modifications are also available from Startech.
Murdoch is buying the top four floors of new Manhattan luxury condo One Madison for $57.25 million. The 60-story glass tower on E. 23rd St. offers amazing New York city views, including clear views of the new World Trade Center. Murdoch’s new “quadruplex” penthouse includes more than 10,000 square feet, features five bedrooms, 5½ bathrooms, a spiral staircase and wide-open living areas, all wrapped by floor-to-ceiling glass. The condo also has an internal private elevator.
For adventurous couples who may have already inducted themselves into the Mile High Club at 35,000 feet, Oliver’s Travels has adapted a leisure submarine with luxury furnishings and “sound-proof living accommodations” as part of their Mile Low Club.
The underwater marine hotel called “Lovers Deep” can be moored near the coral reef off the coast of St. Lucia or near a sunken battleship in the Red Sea.
But love at the bottom of the ocean doesn’t come cheap. You’ll need to cough up $292,800 USD per night for a stay on the submarine vessel.
Aston Martin is debuting a new special edition of the V8 Vantage at this year’s Geneva Car Show, the race-inspired N430. Available in a coupe or roadster, the new N430s will feature a new aerodynamic kit, tweaked suspension, a bolder exhaust note, and a new series of racing-inspired exterior treatments.
