Thierry Stern, the owner and CEO of Patek Philippe, has a $90 million superyacht as classy as their timepieces. Named after the watchmaker’s most iconic collection, the 240-foot-long ‘Nautilus’ is an explorer vessel with water toys, a hammam, a massage room, and even a sushi station.

Introduced in 1976, Patek Philippe’s Nautilus is the most iconic and successful collection of the independent Swiss luxury watch brand. It has become a symbol of luxury and elegance, earning admiration from collectors and watch enthusiasts around the globe. The Nautilus line is so treasured by Patek Philippe that the company’s owner and president, Thierry Stern, named his $90 million superyacht after the Gérald Genta-designed timepiece. Currently cruising in the East and West Mediterranean, the Nautilus superyacht was recently spotted near the port of Antibes in France. We are unsure if the vessel’s billionaire owner was on board as the Nautilus is also available for charter in several cruising destinations, with prices starting at $750,000 per week.

Previously named Grace E, it was built by Perini Navi and delivered to her owner in 2014. With an overall length of 73.3 meters, Nautilus was the largest superyacht built by the Italian shipyard when it was launched a decade ago. Engineered and built to cruise across the world, the explorer-type vessel has a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure. Its exterior was designed by Philippe Briand Ltd., while the interior design was done by French designer Rémi Tessier. It offers a unique blend of European elegance with a unique Asian-inspired atmosphere.

The guest rooms comprise four cabins with a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom facilities and one cabin with a twin bed and also an en-suite bathroom. The luxury superyacht is managed by a crew of 20, including the captain. The vessel features an elegantly designed guest elevator that services all decks.

For maximum guest privacy, the crew can access the foredeck and aft tender garages without entering guest spaces. The U-shaped cocktail bar in the sky lounge also doubles as a sushi station.

Designed to explore remote locations, the Nautilus superyacht has an impressive transatlantic range of 7,500 miles and can carry 185,000 liters of fuel on board. It is powered by four Caterpillar diesel-electric engines and Azipods, which give her a top speed of 16.5 kn. The Nautilus superyacht is a true piece of art, just like the legendary watch collection it is named after.
