The global private members club and concierge service Quintessentially has announced that it is to build the “world’s largest superyacht” – called Quintessentially One.
The 220-metre vessel will only be open to the “global elite to tour the world and attend the world’s most desirable events,” according to details released by the company.
It will cost £250 million to build and will serve Quintessentially members as a seaborne private members club.
“It will be the world’s largest floating private membership club,” said Quintessentially’s co-founder, Aaron Simpson.
“Where the traditional cruise model is to go somewhere, dock and get off; we will dock and people will want to get on”, he stressed.
No builder has yet been announced for the superyacht.

According to the Quintessentially One website, the vessel will have 11 decks, 10 residential suites and a crew of 490 to cater for the guests on board.
A boutique hotel on the lower decks will provide 112 berths, with prices expected to start from £2,000 a night.
The superyacht, which will have a gross tonnage of 45,000 GRT, will be Norwegian-registered.
The cruising speed of Quintessentially One has not been revealed.
“This is a wonderful way to cater and meet the demands of Quintessentially’s global members when they all descend on the same high-profile events which currently don’t have enough supply,” explained Simpson, who says the vessel will visit events such as the Monaco Grand Prix, Cannes Film Festival and Rio Festival.
Five unnamed billionaires are reported to have paid £8.5 million each towards the build cost, and will each receive a private suite.
The superyacht will be 40-metres longer than the world’s biggest private vessel, Azzam, which was launched by Lürssen Yachts in April 2013.
It is set to make its first voyage in 2019-2020.
