During this last weekend Puerto Vallarta has been home to the Seven Seas, Steven Spielberg’s luxurious mega yacht that has been sailing around the waters of Banderas Bay.

Throughout films like Indiana Jones, Amistad and Jurassic Park, filmmaker Spielberg has shown his devotion for adventures, vessels and gigantic creatures. It is therefore not surprising at all that he would also be a die-hard yacht sailing enthusiast and the owner of a “gigantic vessel” with a name that evokes “adventure”.

The super yacht costs around $200 million USD and was custom built for the three-time Academy Award winner in 2010 by Dutch shipbuilder Oceanco while the elegant and modern interiors and exteriors were designed by renowned Italian studio Nuvolari & Lenard, in 2016 it was refitted by Amico & Co.

The 282-feet Seven Seas is a motor yacht that accommodates up to 14 guests and a crew of 26. Among its incredible high-end amenities and equipment, guests can use the helicopter pad, a gym, a spa, a massage room and an infinity pool with a 15-foot glass wall that functions as a movie screen. As for accommodations, the vessel offers 7 cabins, including an oversized master stateroom and study, a VIP stateroom on the main deck, a VIP stateroom on the terrace deck and four more suites.

Many friends of Spielberg have been spotted on board of the Seven Seas, including Blake Lively, Leonardo DiCaprio and Gwyneth Paltrow. Spielberg himself went on a 30,000-mile world tour aboard his mega yacht in 2013, visiting places like China, Sri Lanka and Hawaii.

However, it seems that the iconic E.T. Director thinks this yacht is not big enough to fulfill his needs. That is why he has been trying to sell the yacht for approximately $184 million USD. According to the Daily Mail, Steven Spielberg’s new yacht will be 300-feet long with a cost of $250 million USD. At the moment, the yacht is being offered as a luxurious yacht for charter at $1.3 million USD per week, making it the most expensive yacht charter in the world.

Recent super yacht arrivals reinforce Vallarta·Nayarit as the place-to-visit for more and more yacht owners and nautical enthusiasts, placing our destination as a hotspot of the Pacific Ocean recreational cruising routes.

“Vallarta Lifestyles has readers from Punta de Mita to Mismaloya and beyond, so announcing my business, means the positioning and recognition of my agency throughout the region. The contents of the magazine are very interesting, because they provide relevant information about activities in the destination. I am pleased to see it at hotels, restaurants and galleries, but what excites me the most is to see people with their issue in hand. That is really relevant for us.”

“We started to advertise 7 or 8 years ago and certainly it has helped us position our brand. Now that we have improved a lot in quality, processes and finished products, our marketing in the magazine is precisely to strengthen the leadership we have earned through the 13 years in the area. I also think that we also have grown with the advertisement and that it has been done and it has helped us get to where we are now.”

“We have been clients of Vallarta Lifestyles since 1999, the year in which we arrived to this destination. Back then, it was the only publication where you could really do local marketing. These days, in spite of the arrival of new technologies, we keep advertising, because it is a really important complement for our marketing strategy.”
