73m James Bond-Inspired Superyacht 'Quantum of Solace' SOLD For $60 Million

By Heather Collier

Launched by Turquoise Yachts over a decade ago, the iconic 72.6m superyacht 'Quantum of Solace' has been sold once again and is due to be handed over to her new owner.

Listed for sale with Peter Thompson at Ahoy Club, FGI Yacht Group was also on hand to assist with Vice President Frank Grzeszczak Jr representing the buyer.

Quantum of Solace was previously owned by John Staluppi, Founder of Atlantic Auto Group. Staluppi has owned 21 yachts over the course of 30 years, all of which are named after the films in the James Bond Series.

Staluppi's second yacht, Octopussy, is officially the fastest superyacht in the world as of today, with a top speed of 61 mph (98 kph).

Upon her launch in 2012, she was the largest and most technologically advanced superyacht ever built by Turquoise Yachts. As one of the defining projects of the shipyard, she is still inspiring new designs there today.

H2 Yacht Design helped to collaborate on creating her strong graphic lines, flowing curves and an interior, which creates a clean and modern atmosphere when on board.

Built with steel hull and aluminium superstructure, her beam stretches across 12.23 metres to provide an open layout which introduces design elements such as her unique double-height atrium in the main salon.

Other such elements include the spa, which is positioned next to a sea platform which extends 90 degrees over the water to bring owners closer to the ocean. Here, those on board can make the most of a steamroom, shower, spa pool, treatment room and a spacious area for yoga. 

Spread over four levels, she is replete with a range of contemporary facilities including a built-in DJ booth, a touch-and-go helipad, and spacious living areas. On the lower deck, there is an expansive beach club with a fold-down door and access to the Asian-inspired spa.

These open spaces feature a relaxed, comfortable yet modern approach to interior styling, with a mixture of light woods and fabrics with contemporary furniture moving through the various characters of the yacht’s individual areas. Furnishes are highly elegant and rich, as one would expect from a James Bond tribute yacht.

Matching tenders sit in the lateral garages, equipped with cranes and hydraulically activated doors for easy launching and retrieval from water.

Several morel formal and informal dining areas can also be added, both indoors and outside, a private cinema, a small concert hall, and more areas for entertaining and socialising. 

Quantum of Solace offers accommodation for up to 12 guests in 6 cabins; consisting of a full-beam Owner’s suite as well as five guest cabins on the main deck. 

The owner’s suite is located on the upper deck and features his and hers bathrooms, two opulent dressing rooms and a balcony on either side. Six staterooms can be found on the main deck, all with walk-in closets and stunning interior design by H2 Yacht Design.

Superyachts.com would like to extend our congratulations to her new owner and all parties involved.
