Outspoken climate activist Steven Spielberg has taken delivery of his $250 million superyacht – Even longer than a football field, the diesel-powered 4,444 ton vessel has two swimming pools and, in all possibility, a plush movie theater and a helipad.


The thing about superyachts is that once you get on them, you never get off. Not literally but metaphorically. It stays in your spirit, features in your holiday plans, and there will never be a better way to unwind. This could be why despite selling the 282-foot-long superyacht Seven Seas for $150 million, Spielberg commissioned another Oceanco yacht, also called Seven Seas (named after his seven children). The original Seven Seas is now called Man Of Steel and is owned by Canadian steel billionaire Barry Zekelman.

This month, the 358 feet ship worth $250 million was delivered to the legendary American filmmaker. The Dutch shipyard, as expected, remained unfailingly tight-lipped about the owner’s identity. Still, it doesn’t take a genius to guess the boat with the same name could only belong to the world-famous director.

“Setting Seven Seas apart is her beautifully proportioned profile and the exquisite use of natural materials and glass on board, offering guests an unparalleled outward-looking experience,” the shipyard said. “Under the unique expertise and guidance of Lateral Naval Architects, the project underwent an extensive optimization process, resulting in outstanding performance and exceptional seakeeping ability.”

What can one expect from Seven Seas, the sequel?
If it bears the name Spielberg, how can it be anything but a masterpiece? On the one hand, Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design lends the boat a striking proportionate exterior with a sleek steel hull, sharp lines, and tapered decks, akin to a casting director who brings good looks aboard. Interiors were handled by Molly Isaksen Interiors, who, like an ace art director, incorporated Seven Seas with an avant-garde aesthetic using natural materials and expansive glass panels.


The $250 million vessel built in 2022 can accommodate 14 guests in 7 suites serviced by a crew of 30. While details are scarce at this point, Superyachtfan has observed a large swimming pool on the main deck and a spa pool on the sundeck. As the predecessor flaunted cabins with wardrobes, desk space, a private bathroom, a ballroom size main saloon, 17 televisions, several spas, and stellar diving equipment, the new pleasure craft will undoubtedly bring more to the table.

The 358-footer gets its power from twin MTU 20V 4000 M73L diesel engines that allow the vessel a top speed of 20 knots. Seven Seas is already setting records as the first LY3-compliant yacht to feature a marine evacuation system. While the luxurious amenities are still sheathed in secrecy, we can ascertain this mammoth will cost the ardent environmentalist $25-$30 million in annual running costs.

Seven Seas is Oceanco’s second-largest build to date-
2023 was an iconic year for the Dutch shipyard Oceanco. They delivered Amazon co-founder, centibillionaire Jeff Bezos’s Koru and Seven Seas, marking the shipyard’s second-largest construction to date. With half the year left and almost three yachts, all more than 330 feet long, under construction, it looks like Oceanco is indeed going full steam ahead.
