The Internationally acclaimed French creator, designer and architect, Philippe Starck is one of the most celebrated figures in the industry due to its capacity to work in a wide variety of disciplines. Starck has actually worked on many luxury yachts, and today, we are going to feature the best of them. These vessels showcase his true versatile mind and his enduring passion for the sea.
This yacht was one of the earliest yachts that Starck had worked on. Virtuelle was launched in 1999 by Tencara. Starck worked closely with naval architect Andrea Vallicelli. Accommodating up to six guests, this 24-metre all-GRP sailing yacht is notable for her extensive use of curved teak decking.
The interior design of this magnificent yacht features some of the best trademarks of Starck, including a luminous superyacht staircase and an assortment of bespoke furniture. She can accommodate 12 guests.

Launched in 2008 by German shipyard, Blohm+Voss, the Motor Yacht A was commissioned by Russian owner Andrey Melnichencko.

Commissioned by the late Apple founder Steve Jobs, this stunning yacht was launched by Feadship in 2012. Her sleek exteriors feature a notably large proportion of glass, while her voluminous interiors are believed to total around 1,500GT.
