This Floating Beauty Is Tasteful Luxury for the Modern Millionaire and Is Up for Grabs

I like to keep tabs on the superyachts that pop up around the world, and while the Santosh was born before I started my work with autoevolution, it's now up for sale and worthy of some attention.
Folks, the ravishing floating palace you see in the image gallery has been dubbed the Santosh. It's a superyacht that was born back in 2020, saw a refit in 2022, and in 2024, is looking for a new owner. While you might or may not have the cash to actually purchase it for yourself, it's still a vessel worthy of some attention as it delivers a clean and crisp living experience that's worthy of being called inspiration.

Now, since most of us will probably never set foot upon such a ship, let's kick back and take a bit of a daydream through a life lived aboard the Santosh, if only imaginary, and all that starts with you plopped down on the highest deck of this over 108-foot (33 m) ship.

Up here, guests will be able to enjoy moments in the sun on large rear-facing lounge beds and centers, while toward the front, a bar is spotted, and finally, an interior area with a 270-degree view of the outside to cool off or just head down one deck.

As we do, the Santosh presents an outdoor dining area and lounge sitting in the shade of the superstructure above, and from here, it's the delightful and perfectly balanced main lounge that stands out against all other interiors I've seen in recent times.

Eggshell white and cream leathers are balanced with blue fabric pillows and accents, while beige sections of the walls match the light emanating from them. An art deco wooden table stands out against the rest of the lounge, and floor-to-ceiling windows flood the space with natural light.

Honestly, I've seen countless yacht interiors, renderings, and real, and rarely have they been as inviting as the one spotted on the Santosh. Who's responsible for what we see? None other than the folks over at Gulf Craft, a team that's been active since 1997. They're also responsible for the exterior.

As we move further into the Santosh, we can see even more of Gulf Craft's abilities at work. Just like that main lounge, guest staterooms are crafted using simplicity as the key element, and frankly, it's a home run no matter how you look at it.

The most important space is the master bedroom with its beam-to-beam design and that soft pallet of colors once again. The presence of large floor-to-ceiling windows makes this the perfect place to wake up for another day of floating dreams. What more could we want?

Well, if we consider that this is a superyacht, there's plenty that we can demand from the Santosh, and worry not; it can deliver. First off, maybe you're the kind of person that needs to get that blood flowing in the morning. If that's the case, a gym is standing by to help you get the alcohol out of your system.

Hungry? Why not ask any of the crew for some breakfast, or if you've awoken rather late in the day, head back up to the top deck and enjoy a bite to eat served fresh off a Teppanyaki grill? With bellies full, enjoy a bit of sun, sip a mimosa, or head down to the entertainment center and relax before a dip in the sea.

Speaking of dips in the sea, the Santosh is prepared for fun in the surrounding waters, too. Let's start things off with a Wiliams tender to be used for accessing some of those hidden bays you discover along your trips, or maybe the captain knows a few.

Then there are two jet skis and sea bobs aboard, too, perfect for messing around and getting wet. I hope you like sharks. All that's standing by on a beach club deck large enough to also lay down a few towels for catching some sun until it's your turn to ride.

The question is, who built this machine, and who's selling it? Well, regarding the seller, they have chosen to remain anonymous and are working with Northrop & Johnson to broker this deal. As for who crafted the magic of all we see, that's Majesty, the one and the same owned by Gulf Craft. So Gulf Craft for the win here, folks.

As for the question on everyone's mind, how much does this thing cost? We currently don't know. The brokers for this deal have deemed this one worthy of "Price Upon Request." This can only mean that it's bound to empty someone's bank account or trust fund, if you're lucky enough to find yourself among the 1% of the world's richest people, that is. Why not scoop it up and turn it into a business, like most other superyachts? Just a little something-something to drool over. I know I did.
