A billionaire Rothschild heir owns an explorer superyacht so cool that it was featured in a Christopher Nolan blockbuster. Now, he is selling it for $87 million. The five-decker vessel boasts a helipad, an observation lounge, a cinema, and an opulent owner’s deck.


Admiral’s Planet Nine, a stellar expedition yacht with the interiors of a stunning mansion, is now listed for sale by her owner, a Rothschild heir. At first glance, the 240-footer reveals nothing of her inviting interiors, simply exuding stealth with a robust exterior, giving the impression of a severe vessel meant for business—props to Tim Heywood Design Ltd. for this achievement. Inside, however, the 2100 GT boat transforms like a luxury-loving chameleon—thanks to the exquisite interior design by Fitz Interior.

The main saloon.

The beautiful luxury vessel, which once starred in the blockbuster Tenet, boasts an elegant main salon with wraparound windows, walls lined with countless books, and a wonderful al fresco dining area bathed in natural light.


It also features two beach clubs for use in warm and cool climates, a cinema, and nine elegant guest cabins. The most lavish section aboard Planet Nine is undoubtedly the owner’s deck, a private 3,000 sq. ft. apartment with a full suite that includes dressing rooms, a lounge, a study, and a terrace.
