As you can see, the filmmaker is not only known for his achievements, but also for his impact on yachting, since he possesses one of the most coveted Superyachts of all time, the Seven Seas. This 282.15-feet custom motor Superyacht was built by Oceanco in the Netherlands and officially launched in 2010, with an exquisite exterior and interior design by design experts Nuvolari & Lenard.

Natural birchwood is the material that obviously prevails, applied to the floors, indoor stairs, Venetian blinds and bulkheads, while the bathrooms are decorated with marble. There’s also an eccentric fireplace in the main deck’s saloon and a galley adorned with retro satin glass. The majority of pieces that are available on this yacht was developed by Armani, and the chosen palette sat on metal grey ceilings and dark green walls, although each cabin features a different colour scheme.
