America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #27: Paraffin


#27: PARAFFIN—197'2"

Why would a 400-bottle wine collection be aboard a yacht unless there was a gimbaled champagne holder to accompany them, to prevent precious drops from spilling? Seriously, you’ve got to see the perfectly polished, beautifully inscribed holder aboard Paraffin. Custom made by a Dutch company called Bottler and designed by the same Dutch interior designer who created interior workshop drawings for the yacht, the brass holder adapts to the yacht’s motion while always keeping the Mot upright.
