Vanity Fair: The world's largest wooden sailing yacht, CREOLE

Tuesday, 13th February 2018

The world’s largest wooden sailing yacht, Creole, owned by the Gucci family, is being offered for charter for the first time. Built in 1927, she’s a whopper at 65.3 metres. And she has a chequered history: requisitioned as a mine hunter in the Second World War; refurbished by shipping magnate Stavros Niarchos, whose wife myseteriously died on board; sold to the Danish government to train naval recruits; and since restored by Maurizio Gucci, the last of the dynasty to run the brand, who was gunned down by a hitman hired by his ex-wife. No matter her past; under full sail, off the coast of Monaco, there is no finer way to move around the Mediterranean.
