Like all leaders in our business, we have gone through a recent period where the yacht industry has been subjected to inquiries from some authorities, but over the past few months, Imperial Yachts has been targeted by numerous unfounded and inaccurate accusations following events that are unrelated to this family owned company and its services.

These events culminated today with the announcement of sanctions on our company by the United States government. The accusations made against us by the U.S. government and in the press are false. We will pursue all available legal remedies to resolve this matter promptly.

Imperial Yachts conducts all its businesses in full compliance with laws and regulations in all jurisdictions in which we operate. We are not involved in our clients’ financial affairs.

We are in the yacht building, management, sale and charter business. That is our focus and what we do. We started this company from nothing, and now, it appears that due to our success, we are unfortunately being targeted by those who would like to bring us down.

We look forward to settling all matters resulting from this turbulent time, as well as disproving the damaging smears made against our company. As always, our focus remains on living up to our established name as an international leader in providing the highest level of excellence for yacht sales, construction, management, and chartering.

Project Lumen: the diamond-coated superyacht

divider

FLIBS 2017 was the opportunity for the Dutch superyacht builder Oceanco to turn the spotlight on another innovative idea originating from their very creative minds. Based on Project Lumen, a 92-metre concept project developed by the yard, a unique paint coating is applied to the superyacht, which is produced using ethically sourced natural diamonds. 

The proprietary Sun King® coating uses a patent-pending process developed by Jean Boulle Luxury, a group that has a long heritage in all facets of the diamond industry. Boulle is working exclusively with partners AkzoNobel to tailor the diamond coating for automobiles, airplanes and yachts. This shimmering luminescent effect stretches across the entire superyacht designed by Adriel Rollins, and marks another innovative first for the yachting industry, after Oceanco introduced Project Moonstone.

Commenting on the new partnership, Bertrand Boulle, CEO of Jean Boulle Luxury, says, “AkzoNobel sets the standards for coatings in the yachting industry, making them the perfect partner for Jean Boulle Luxury’s high-quality diamond coatings. Sun King® Diamond Coating has a number of potential superyacht applications and its qualities are unmatched by any other product on the market”.

“Following the success of Sun King® Diamond Coating in the aviation and automotive sectors, we are pleased to be extending the partnership to the yacht market, says Antonella Donzelli, Global Yacht Director of AkzoNobel Specialty Coatings. This innovative product is now available to superyacht owners as a result of technical insight, innovation and collaborative spirit”. 

The Lumen scale model painted in diamond coating was on display at the Oceanco stand at the 2017 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Project Lumen is a Passenger Yacht Code vessel with accommodation for up to 36 guests. As the name suggests, the defining feature of the yacht is light. The Sun King® Diamond coating is the perfect enhancement to Rollins’ design, which is replete with metal and glasswork.
