Although its name speaks of the French culture, Baton Rouge was born in the Netherlands, built by one of the many acclaimed shipyards located there, Icon Yachts. Its majestic silhouette has an instant striking effect, due to its length of 205 feet (62 meters) and six-deck construction.

The owner of this imposing vessel is reportedly Martin Bouygues. According to Forbes, his brother Olivier and him own a billion-making industrial conglomerate in Paris. Born as a construction firm in the ‘50s, the family business would later become the Bouygues Group, expanding its operations to telecommunications and media.

Truly fit for a billionaire with exquisite tastes, Baton Rouge blends sophisticated features with modern amenities. Designed by the famous Tim Heywood, it also flaunts a beach-house-inspired interior, created by RWD.

More like a beach mansion – the master suite unfolds over 1,076 square feet (100 square meters) including not just one, but two private offices and a lavish bathroom with blue marble and a frosted glass shower cabin. The other suites can sleep ten more guests. The sun deck is everyone’s favorite place during the day, with huge circular sun pads forward and discrete sun loungers aft.

In the evenings, guests can either enjoy a clubbing atmosphere on the sun deck, which transforms into a party space with great sound and lighting, or opt for something much more French – sipping cognac in the observation lounge and relaxing in the library.

While everyone on board is having a fabulous time, the Baton Rouge confidently sails at 14.5 knots (16.6 mph/26.8 kph), powered by its twin MTU engines.

The only “downside” is the price – one week onboard this stylish floating mansion costs $500,000 (€455,000) in high season, according to the Burgess Yachts listing. Vacationing in style doesn’t come cheap.
