Split kite-boards : 

Excellent for traveling, the board splits in half and can fit in your luggage. Among many split kite boards, FLYSPLIT is a good one to consider.

KING BABY Motor Yacht

The 140-foot (42.7m) IAG luxury motor yacht draws influences from rock’n’roll history and the edgy jewelry line she is named after. With five chic and contemporary staterooms offering accommodation for up to 12 guests, KING BABY is the perfect yacht for an exciting holiday in the Caribbean. Guests will enjoy a full-beam master suite on the main deck, which has a sumptuous his-and-hers en-suite bathroom, three superbly styled en-suite king staterooms and one large twin stateroom below deck.

With interior and exterior styling by the renowned Evan K. Marshall, the aesthetic of KING BABY is bold and slightly provocative.  Her unique style makes her a standout. On board KING BABY guitars are used as pieces of art, custom tables and doors are inspired by kings of rock and vintage hood ornaments set a truly alluring tone. Furthermore, the owners curated an inspiring collection of classic rock photos and iconography throughout the decks of the yacht. All of this is made complete by modern amenities that ensure total comfort while cruising.

Luxury with a rebel spirit is what KING BABY is all about.

MAIN FEATURES

 

Fantastic charter-savvy crew under the command of Captain Peter Spinelli
The largest composite IAG Yacht ever built in China
Show-stopping rock iconography throughout
Guest accommodations for 12 in five beautifully designed staterooms
84-inch TV in the skylounge with a mega sound system for the ultimate cinema experience
Custom-built Jacuzzi with a three-tiered waterfall surrounded by a stylish bar on sundeck
Upper aft deck features alfresco dining for 10 with AC panel for comfort

Evan K. Marshall is responsible for the swooping exterior lines and the relaxing interior, a mix of hand-crafted black walnut woodwork offset by lighter upholstery. Big windows really open up the shared guest spaces, and there is plenty of headroom, too (the owner is over six feet tall). The guest spaces benefit from some monochrome images of a variety of latterday rock stars and icons – Keith Richards, Pattie Hansen, Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, Debbie Harry and Bob Dylan among others, and there’s even an electric guitar on a stand in the sky lounge, should any guest feel the need to jam. The rock theme adds a cool vibe to the yacht, and perhaps indicates the interests of her owner.  – Superyachtworld
