Designed by Italian firm Nuvolari Lenard, Kismet 2.0 is 88 feet longer than its predecessor and weighs twice as much. The behemoth has an interior volume of 5,500 GT, in fact. Even at such a size, Kismet showcases harmonious proportions and sleek, elegant lines. The mast and bow, for instance, were modeled after a leaping jaguar and to ensure a distinctive profile.

Kismet Superyacht

Khan once again enlisted U.K. studio Reymond Langton Design to bring the interior to life. The billionaire is known to have very specific and clearly quite lavish taste. He requested the interior of the original Kismet reflect a “Champagne and caviar” theme, for example. The second Kismet is equally extravagant. A two-level open-plan entrance area with sweeping video walls leads to stylish living quarters that span some six decks.

The layout includes between eight and nine cabins for up to 12 guests and cabins for 36 crew. In addition, the owner’s suite comprises a spacious stateroom, dual bathrooms, two dressing rooms, and a private terrace with a Jacuzzi. Above, the owner’s office offers panoramic views, a conference table for up to six, and a dedicated pantry.

“The owner’s brief was challenging,” Peter Lürßen, managing director of Lürssen, said in a statement. “However, we believe that with our technical expertise, we have fulfilled the owner’s wish and vision for a yacht that will still be timeless and ahead of its time for many years to come.”

The best part? Kismet will be available for the 2024 charter season for €3 million (roughly $3.3 million) a week. Contact the Cecil Wright team for more information on availability, charter rates, and cruising locations.

At 95.2m/312'4", iconic charter yacht Whisper features a compelling line-up of living areas and modern amenities and abounds in luxury and comfort

Delivered in 2014 by Lurssen, the 312.34ft/95.2m custom motor yacht Whisper (ex-Kismet) features an interior designed by Reymond Langton Design and an exterior styled by Espen Oeino.

Bringing together a team composed of award winners, superyacht WHISPER is unquestionably the realisation of both luxury and uncompromised perfection. Timeless whilst still lightyears ahead of her time, WHISPER couples astounding technical quality with innovative design work.

Exterior Design

Featuring the pioneering styling of the acclaimed Espen Oeino, the exterior of superyacht WHISPER has been gracefully shaped in order to meet the owner’s brief for a yacht which would be an unrivalled charter choice and a premier entertainer. Built with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, she is sleek, and replete with all of the amenities necessary for satisfying the modern charterer. One such conversation point regarding her exterior is the mosaic tiled pool with an inset Jacuzzi on the upper foredeck. Due to its position, this Jacuzzi affords guests the perfect observation platform from which to overlook the sea and coastlines whilst underway or at-anchor. For those who prefer to remain dry whilst taking in the sights, four Stidd chairs have been strategically placed around the Jacuzzi in order to provide the same scope without obstructing the view of those taking a soak. To get even higher to secure an unparalleled photo opportunity, a winding staircase a short distance away provides access to a dedicated observation deck which can be enjoyed throughout the day. Bearing a walkaround layout, the team at Espen Oeino have recessed all of the storage compartments to allow for an undisrupted flow when navigating the various outdoor spaces of WHISPER- a decision which likewise provides the perfect excuse for taking an evening stroll to coincide with the sunset. Another uniquely impressive addition to the exterior is the secondary helipad on the foredeck which nicely doubles up as a basketball court, whilst the helipad on the bridge deck is easily converted into an exceptionally relaxed outdoor lounging area. Keen to keep guests entertained at night as well as by day, a fire pit with an integrated waterfall has been installed on the aft deck to provide just the right amount of heat for guests who want to enjoy their meals al freso at the dining table just a short distance away. Of course, it goes without saying that the four foot black jaguar resting on the bowsprit of superyacht WHISPER is very much the finishing touch to such a superbly arranged exterior.

Interior Design

Asked to create a compelling and distinct interior based on a ‘Champagne & Caviar’ theme, Reymond Langton Design have arranged both the social and private spaces to remain suitable whether guests are throwing a glamorous party or simply relaxing over a few drinks. Similar to the innovation found outdoors, the interior of superyacht WHISPER features a double-height main salon which spans the main and upper deck aft. Reached via a sweeping staircase, this area is infused with a colour scheme and architecture reminiscent of the Art Deco movement. Indeed, the juxtaposition of blacks and golds creates a strikingly luxurious ambience which is perfect for indulging both after-hours champagne and morning coffee. Nicely flexible, guests can have jazz tunes coming from the grand piano if they’re entertaining, or light one of the two fireplaces if it’s a more cozy vibe they’re after. The skylounge, meanwhile, exudes a more casual atmosphere thanks to its beach house style decor. Yet, with a large sports bar that opens out across the vast deck aft, the space easily transforms into a disco nightclub.

Guest Accommodation

A veritable masterpiece, the owner’s suite of superyacht WHISPER occupies the forward half of the upper deck. Featuring his and hers bathing rooms, room-size wardrobes, and even a private Jacuzzi, this suite comes with a personal office for attending to any necessary business whilst away on vacation. The two generously sized VIP suites on the main deck reflect the Art Nouveau influences which can be traced in the interior social spaces, whilst the remaining staterooms adopt Art Deco and Japanese themes to provide a stunning array of sleeping options. Ultimately, whichever room guests find themselves resting in on-board WHISPER, they can be assured that they’ll be doing so in total style.

Onboard Comfort & Entertainment

As well as providing a cinema screen on the foredeck, a party-friendly and spacious main salon, and a wealth of lounging spots on her exterior, WHISPER also offers a range of  possibilities for enjoying some activities. Storing her impressive range of tenders and toys in a garage which doubles up as a spot for some waterside aerobics and yoga, superyacht WHISPER is also fully prepared for the more adventurous charter guests who are keen to get out on the water and in amongst the action.

Special Features

Designed in conjunction with a sports loving owner, WHISPER features a dedicated club room which can also be converted into a comfortably sized cinema. What’s more, the staircase leading into the main salon is flanked by two full-height video walls which mean guests can enjoy some drinks and company whilst keeping up the game. With an eye for greener alternatives to standard engineering, superyacht WHISPER features an innovative ‘closed loop system’ which allows the pool, Jacuzzi, and other sources of water to be heated via her exhaust- yet further evidence that she is a yacht at the forefront of design.

Located on the lower deck, a fully dedicated spa area features both a beauty salon and gymnasium to take care of guests whilst they’re away on vacation. Consistent with the intricate design work found elsewhere on-board, this space boasts hand-crafted and commissioned artwork, tailored furnishings, and incredibly soothing textures to create an effortlessly relaxed ambience.

Performance & Range

As a custom displacement yacht, WHISPER also features ‘at anchor stabilisers’ which work at zero speed, increasing onboard comfort at anchor and on rough waters. With a cruising speed of 14 knots, a maximum speed of 17 knots, and a range of 6,000nm from her 220,000 fuel tanks, she effortlessly marries performance with luxury.

Whisper knows a thing or two about fun on the water, with an extensive selection of action packed water toys and accessories for you and your guests to enjoy whilst on charter. Guests can experience the thrill and adventure of riding one of the three Yamaha WaveRunners. Another excellent feature are towable toys offering fun and adventure. Additionally, there are waterskis that are hugely entertaining whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro. If that isn't enough Whisper also features a seabob, wakeboards, kayaks, fishing equipment, scuba diving equipment and much more. Whisper features three tenders, but leading the pack is a 10m/32'10" Hinckley Limo Tender to transport you in style.

Why Charter Whisper

As one of the largest and most sophisticated superyachts available for charter, WHISPER is the ideal choice for those looking to experience a premier luxury vacation whilst enjoying the very best in design and amenities. Truly dynamic, WHISPER allows guests to relax or entertain in unparalleled style and in a distinctly unique setting.

Whisper and her crew are available for charter this summer for cruising within the Mediterranean. She is already accepting bookings this winter for cruising in Bermuda and the Caribbean.

As you can see, luxury motor yacht Whisper offers guests the very best onboard experience, from its sun-kissed top deck down to its standout waterside beach club promising truly memorable vacations that you"ll want to repeat again and again.

KISMET Yacht – Extraordinaire $200M Superyacht

With a value of approximately $200 million dollars, the weekly charter rate costs the incredible US $1.2 Million per week.

She was bought in 2014 after she was launched by Luerssen from Hamburg, Germany.

She has won several awards for her unique design including The World Superyacht Awards in 2015 and she was finalized for the ShowBoats Design Awards in 2016.

The name KISMET stands for the word for “destiny” or “fate” in Urdu which is the owner’s native language.

kismet behind

KISMET yacht interior

Inside the KISMET yacht is just as luxurious as you might expect. The interior was designed by Reymond Langton , an award-winning design company that specializes in luxury yachts.

The owners Pascale Reymond and Andrew Langton have completed a wide range of significant projects since they founded their company in 2001.

Some of the yachts they worked on include AVIVA, TITAN, SERENE, and KAOS. 

Based in Bath in the United Kingdom Reymond Langton says of themselves that they prioritize balance, proportion, and emphasis in all of their designs.

KISMET is a prime example of their high-quality work that is tailor-made to every project they uptake.

KISMET yacht is equipped with state-of-the-art luxury amenities such as a spa, movie theatre, a grand piano, large pool, sauna, jacuzzi, and barbecue area.

She was designed in the style of a luxury five-star hotel with a “champagne and caviar theme” including a black marble deck, a full gym, helipads, and an elevator. 

Of course, there is high-speed internet available on board allowing guests to be connected wherever they go.

One of the bathtubs is made of solid onyx and there is even a retractable fireplace with an integrated waterfall and a winter garden deck.

The main saloon is constructed at double height and features full-length video walls allowing for incredible movie nights. 

This yacht can welcome up to 12 guests in 7 cabins. There is a lavish owner’s suite, a master bedroom, two VIP suites, two standard double rooms as well as two twins.

28 crew members find space in below-deck cabins. The owner’s suite includes walk-in wardrobes, a private jacuzzi, and his and her bathrooms. This yacht is designed for entertaining and events. With several salons and a lot of deck space, she is ideal for hosting lavish parties and celebrations.

The aft deck is directly connected to a sports bar which can even be transformed into a dance floor reminiscent of a luxurious nightclub in the evenings.

High-quality wood, leather, and marble decorate the interior of the vessel with influences of Art Deco design.

This yacht truly achieves its design goal and lets guests feel as though they were staying in a luxurious hotel.

Intricate wall designs and custom-made marble flooring take this yacht to the next level and provide true luxury.

Specifications

KISMET yacht measures a length of 95 meters (311 ft) with a 13.8 meter (45.3 ft) beam and a 3.75 meter (12.4 ft) draft.

Since she barely lies under the 100-meter mark, she is currently considered the 63rd largest motor yacht in the world. Manufactured from steel and aluminum, this yacht is durable and versatile. 

Her two propellers are diesel-type 3516C-HD engines with an impressive 5438 horsepower. At a weight of 2928 tons, she can reach cruising speeds of 12 knots and maximum speeds of 17 knots under ideal conditions.

Her fuel tanks allow her to have a range of up to 6000 nautical miles, which is considerable for her size.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is DJI_0570-1-1024x683.jpg

The beautiful exterior of KISMET was designed by Espen Oeino, a renowned name in the world of superyachts.

Forbes has described him as the “superhero of superyacht design” in the past. His studio is based in Monaco, although he is originally from Norway.

She is one of his most famous projects and played a significant role in his career as a naval architect and designer. She features a large pool with mosaic tiles and an adjacent jacuzzi on the upper foredeck.

This area of the vessel provides breathtaking views over the ocean and nearby scenery. Even further up, there is a separate observation deck perfect for taking photos or watching the sunset. The large helipad on the bow can also be used as a small basketball court allowing for an unforgettable match. There is a secondary helipad on the bridge deck that can be used for sun lounging.

Underwater lighting and modern stabilizers are additional features that the KISMET yacht provides. This vessel was designed with eco-friendliness in mind despite its high energy usage.

KISMET features a so-called “closed-loop system” that heats the pool and jacuzzi using energy from the engines. This system is incredibly efficient and sets her apart from other vessels in her size range. 

The bowsprit is decorated with a four-foot jaguar statue that ties the exceptionally luxurious and unique design together.

It symbolizes the NFL team Jackson Jaguars which belongs to the current owner of KISMET.

Toys and equipment

As a charter yacht, the KISMET yacht is equipped with an array of toys to entertain those onboard.

Several jet skis, scuba diving, and snorkeling equipment, as well as four tenders, are always at disposal of the guests.

She also provides towable water toys, which are consistently among her most popular during the charter.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 89161380-1024x682.jpg

KISMET is far from a standard yacht. She has actually been featured in the Netflix film 6 Underground starring Ryan Reynolds.

On past charters, the yacht has welcomed A-list celebrities such as Beyonce and Jay-Z making her one of the most popular charter yachts in the world. 

Of course, this popularity isn’t unwarranted. The KISMET yacht provides her guests with incredible luxuries and leaves nothing to be desired.

This comes at the steep price of US $1.2 Million per week for charters, which doesn’t include provisions and docking fees.

Brand new super-yacht Kismet arrives in Troon as its first port of call on a round Scotland cruise

Updated: 7 days ago

Ayrshire Daily News reader Ian Downie alerted us to the arrival in Troon of a genuine superyacht.

Luxury is an adjective that barely describes this sailing palace.

Ian said “I was having a coffee by the shore at Seafield this afternoon when I saw a large ship sailing north towards Troon. The ship tracking App showed it as a luxury yacht called Kismet. Apparently it will be available for charter in the Mediterranean for upwards of a cool 3 million euros per week.”

Information online shows the 122 metre (400 feet) long Kirsten was launched earlier this year and replaced the previous 95 metre long Kirsten which was built in 2014. The superyacht website cecilwright.com says Kismet “was built by the renowned German shipyard Lürssen with exterior by Nuvolari Lenard and an interior by Reymond Langton Design, KISMET is a symbol of uncompromising luxury and sets a new standard for excellence in the industry.

Accommodating up to 12 guests in 6 cabins, KISMET offers exceptional entertainment amenities, a wide range of culinary experiences from the huge kitchen area and boasts a full suite of water sport toys and tenders.

The ultimate luxury yacht has a dedicated gym and yoga studio which boast opening sea terraces and are complemented by a juice bar for refreshment. It even has a chromotherapy bathtub. Kismet has crew accommodation for between 30 and 40 people.

“KISMET represents the most exclusive luxury yacht charter experience on the planet” says the Cecil Wright company.

Kismet was built by the world renowned German company Lurssen and according to them “highlights include a two-level open-plan entrance area with video walls, a Nemo cinema on the lower deck featuring a 150-inch television and an underwater seating area, and a luxurious 7-star wellness area, among other exquisite features.

Kismet is owned by the American billionaire Shahid Khan. It is believed to have cost $360 million and will cost about $30 million per year to operate. The yacht recently completed sea trials off the coast at Kiel, Germany and Troon is it’s first berth on its first sailing.

Shahid Khan is one of those billionaires whose life story could be turned into a successful film. His rags-to-riches story began in Pakistan, where he was born, and took a decisive turn when he arrived in the U.S. as a teenager.

According Forbes magazine the business tycoon, who is currently worth more than $8 billion, used to work as a dishwasher while attending the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Years later, he would go on to become the owner of auto parts supplier Flex-N-Gate.

Mr Khan is known today mostly for his ownership of sports clubs. He owns the American football team Jacksonville Jaguars and in 2014 he brought Fulham football club the famous Egyptian born Mohamed Al-Fayed.

Mr Khan became successful as an engineer who designed a one-piece truck bumper. He now also owns several companies in the entertainment industry and has come very far from his early days.

Mr Khan and his very welcome guests are expected to enjoy the Ayrshire sunshine over a long weekend. Perhaps he will take a trip to Glasgow to watch the Old Firm football game today or maybe some guests will enjoy the world class Ayrshire golf courses. It is quite a recognition for Troon harbour owners Associated British Ports that the Kismet has berthed at Troon on its first ever journey.

We doubt the berthing fees will be quite as astronomic as Monaco where Kismet is likely to spend more of its future.

Ayrshire Daily News is very happy to welcome Mr Khan and guests to Ayrshire and hopes that it will be the first of many visits to Scotland.

Whisper was realised by two leading names in yacht design – Espen Øino International for the exterior and Reymond Langton Design for the interior. Exceptional features include not one but two helicopter pads, a private observation platform with an outdoor bed created for stargazing, which can be locked off to other guests and crew.

Eric Schmidt was supposed to buy a yacht once owned by a Russian oligarch. Here's the one he bought instead.

  • Eric Schmidt backed out of buying the Alfa Nero megayacht last year.
  • He instead purchased the Kismet, formerly owned by Shahid Khan, and renamed her Whisper.
  • The ship — one of the biggest yachts owned by a tech billionaire —was listed for about $161 million.

Insider Today

Last year, Eric Schmidt made waves in the yachting community when news came out that he was the soon-to-be owner of the Alfa Nero, an 81-meter megayacht that belonged to a sanctioned Russian oligarch .

The former Google CEO, who is worth $32.1 billion, per Bloomberg, was to pay $67.6 million for the yacht, which was being auctioned off by the government of Antigua and Barbuda , where the ship had been moored since February 2022, the month Russia invaded Ukraine. The small Caribbean nation had been spending $28,000 a week simply to maintain the mammoth boat.

But as the sale proceedings went on, legal challenges piled up as people laid claim to Alfa Nero, and Schmidt backed out of the deal.

It didn't take long for him to rebound, though. In September 2023, just three months after he won the Alfa Nero auction, the billionaire purchased Kismet, renaming her Whisper, Business Insider has learned.

A spokesperson for Schmidt declined to comment to Business Insider.

The 95-meter-long yacht, built by the renowned German shipyard Lürssen and delivered in 2014, was formerly owned by the Jacksonville Jaguar's billionaire owner, Shahid Khan — hence images of the cat featured on her figurehead and throughout her decor.

Whisper, which can fit at least a dozen guests and a crew of 28 features a master deck with a private jacuzzi, as well as a full-service spa, lap pool, hammam, and outdoor fireplace. Made for entertaining, the megayacht has a cinema, a grand piano, and two helipads — one of which doubles as a basketball court and the other than transforms into a disco.

Her interior was designed to "create a feeling of relaxed opulence, based on a 'Champagne & Caviar' theme," according to the brokerage that sold the ship.

While the yacht's final sale price was not public, she was listed for 149 million euros (about $161 million at current exchange rates).

At a charity auction in January, one week aboard the ship went for $2.4 million, according to industry outlet Yacht Charter Fleet — a steal, considering she typically goes for $3 million a week.

Locals left amazed as luxury £288million superyacht Kismet docks at Scottish harbour

The £288m megayacht named 'Kismet' arrived in Troon, Scotland, on its maiden voyage after being constructed at German shipyard Lurssen. The vessel is reportedly owned by Fulham FC owner Shahid Khan

The megayacht Kismet docked at Troon harbour, Scotland

Locals at a Scottish harbour were gobsmacked to see a £288m megayacht dock at the weekend.

Kismet was spotted by local and keen kayaker Mark McInnes. He says: "I'm from Troon, a short walk along the road to the beach to launch the kayaks. Myself and my girlfriend Dawn decided to paddle out to the harbour on Saturday morning to get a closer look at the yacht.

"Not every day these are in Troon and it was such a lovely sunny calm morning on the water. It was amazing to see it up close, so new and clean. There was even a man abseiling off the side of it to clean the windows. We would have loved to get an invite on board but that didn't happen, so we will just have to imagine what it looks like inside."

Featuring interior styling by British designer Reymond Langton Design, Kismet can host up to 12 guests in eight cabins. Passenger are able to arrive by helicopter and can enjoy a dancefloor, beauty salon, spa, elevator, underwater lights, beach club and gym.
