Originally launched by Turkish shipyard Halic Tersaneleri in 1997, superyacht Dream started out as a passenger vessel. With an extensive refit undertaken at Greek yard Chalkis Shipyards S.A. and a substantial interior overhaul by Ciarmoli Queda Studio (CQS), which was completed in July 2018, Dream has been transformed into a six-deck vessel of impeccable quality. The refit saw extensive changes to the exterior, including an extension to the bow, adding 13 metres to her original length of 93 metres. The result is a more streamlined shape and modern aesthetic. Dream’s interior offers 23 guest cabins, three formal dining rooms, a business centre, a wellness centre and two bars. CQS adopted a nautical theme for the design, which combines white marble, light-coloured woods, Grecian murals and white leathers to create an elegant and classical environment. This also includes the use of materials such as handmade carpets by Ferreira de Sa, veneers by Tabu and red carpazi marble floors. There is space for up to 28 crew on board. Dream is now the 37th largest yacht in the world.
One of the most famous society venues of the mid 20th century, the Christina O was launched in 1943 as a naval vessel by shipyard Canadian Vickers.

Sold in 1998 to Greek shipowner John Paul Papanicolaou, it was then sent to Croatia for an extensive refit in 1999 (-2001), though many original features remain, such as the swimming pool’s copy of a Minoan mosaic from Knossos.

Formerly named Sun Bay I then Constellation, Lauren L started life as a 100-passenger cruise vessel. She was purchased by Russian oil magnate Mikhail Khodorkovsky to be used, though she never was, as a floating headquarters. The late Andreas Liveras re-named her Lauren L and completely converted her adding a large master suite and spa as well as moving the helicopter pad to the fore deck so that tenders could be stored on the bridge deck aft.
