You may have thought all superyachts were created equal. But according to designer Lidia Bersani, there is a gap in the market for vessels targeted at the fairer sex.
No men allowed! Inside the world’s first luxury yacht for WOMEN… complete with Swarovski crystal chandeliers, gold mosaics, ice fountains and a spa.
In case the world’s most powerful women don’t want to splash out on the regular millionaires’ toys on the market, luxury designer Lidia Bersani has created the first luxury mega yacht with the fairer sex in mind.
The sleek white and gold yacht, measuring an impressive 80 metres long, is targeted at female buyers and is designed using crystal, gold, fur and flowers. It is even named La Belle, which translates as “the beauty”.
The superyacht is not for the faint-hearted, or Laura Ashley lovers. It’s a riot of opulent gold mosaics, mother of pearl, Swarovski crystal chandeliers, gemstones, onyx and bespoke wooden furniture.
The boat’s design revolves around soft edges, smooth lines, floral patterns and a large amount of glass, crystal and bright white.
Lidia Bersani’s website says of La Belle: “The yacht is in distinctive Bersani Style, romantic and warm. The colours in white, ivory and gold are predominant. Interior is full of opulent and comfortable elements.”
The vessel could comfortably sleep 12 guests in six deluxe cabins.
The master cabin on the second deck is unsurprisingly decadent; with a round king size double bed and baldachin (a canopy that traditionally sits over a throne or tomb of someone important), private terrace, thick curtains, gold touches and floral carpeting.
There are five other guest suites spread around the boat. If you get bored of sunning yourself on deck the yacht has lounges, dining places and facilities for live music.
In place of darts boards and computer games, you’ll find a spa area with hyrdromassage pool, sauna, hamman, infra-red sauna, snow room and ice fountains; small fitness club with outdoor jacuzzi; library with fireplace; beauty centre, disco club, cinema G theatre, as well as a few bars.
“The idea is to equip this superyacht with ultra-modern stabilising system and state of the art machinery and equipment,” says Lidia Bersani Luxury Designer.

Each of the five decks has an outside area for relaxing, sun bathing and looking our to sea. There’s a lift as well as staircase to take you in between them. A helicopter landing pad sits on top of the vessel, naturally. And in the designs mocked up by Ms Bersani, a gold helicopter sits in board.
Nobody knows just how much the asking price is yet, but one thing’s for sure, it will hurt the hip pocket!
