One of the biggest yachts in the world visits Curaçao
WILLEMSTAD – If you are in Downton Willemstad today, make sure you check out the harbor. You will see one the largest yachts in the world docked in the St. Anna Bay. The Attessa IV, a 337-foot mega-yacht owned by Dennis Washington is visiting Curaçao.
The yacht was actually built in 1998 and named the Evergreen by a Japanese businessman, but it was purchased in 2007 and renamed the Attessa IV by Washington, a Montana construction mogul with a love of rebuilding yachts. The redesign included lengthening the stern and bow of the ship.
In a recent interview with Forbes, Washington indicates that he had spent three years rebuilding and redesigning the yacht to his liking. Now it includes a fifth-floor sky lounge and bar, a grand staircase flanked by Henry Moore sculptures, a lit pool and deck that includes a spa, and a completely redone engine room. Four rooms were transformed into a gym, a spa and a massage room.
The yacht even has its own helicopter and landing pad.
The boat is used as a charter. The value of the vessel is estimated to be 450 million guilders.
