World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #22: Lauren L
#22: LAUREN L—295'3"
Last year, when Liveras Yachts purchased this boat, then known as Constellation, we knew the yacht-management company would have her undergo a refit—and what a refit it turned out to be. Her sixth deck was extended fully to become a sundeck and to reconfigure the space dedicated to the sauna, hair saloon, and other health and beauty amenities. She also gained 560 square meters (6,028 square feet) of space dedicated to interior guest areas alone; that figure represents nearly half of the previous space devoted to them. One thing that hasn't changed is that Lauren L caters to grand-scale charter (try 48 overnight guests) and thus commands a grand charter rate: €770,000 per week (about $1.199 million). The price did anything but dissuade one particular client, who booked her for the entire month of August.
