9 Issues You Didn’t Know About ‘Victorious,’ a 252-Foot Superyacht With Its Personal Fire and Indoor Pool

Victorious might look shiny-new, tied to her superyacht dock at this week’s Miami International Boat Show. But it took more the 18 years to get here.

Rewind to 2006. The steel-and-aluminum shell of a 252-foot explorer yacht is sitting in a shipyard in Santiago, Chile, with no money to complete. Kiwi serial yacht owner and billionaire Graeme Hart puts in an offer, and has the yacht towed to his native New Zealand for completion.

After two years of work, Hart switches his attention to his new superyacht project, the 380-foot Kleven-built explorer called Ulysses. Eight years later, he sells the yacht in 2016 to Turkish entrepreneur Vural Ak. After having the yacht towed to Istanbul, Ak he creates a shipyard, appropriately called AKYacht. The yard extends the hull’s length 18 feet and creates a beautiful interior. Victorious is finally completed in 2021. The following year it receives a “2022 Robb Report Best of the Best” award.

After three years of circling the globe, Victorious is now looking for a new owner, with an asking price of $129 million.
