Have you dreamed of sailing around the Mediterranean on your own majestic yacht, enjoying every comfort and convenience while visiting exotic ports and out-of-the-way destinations? Six couples will achieve that dream.

Formerly known as the Kismet, the M/Y Whisper is a world-renowned 312-foot superyacht that was built in 2014 for businessman Shahid Khan, owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars and Fulham F.C. Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt purchased the yacht in 2023.

Whisper embodies the essence of luxury and perfection, seamlessly blending an interior design by Reymond Langton with an exterior by Espen Oeino. This yacht is a timeless masterpiece that marries technical excellence with innovation and comfort.

Crafted with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, Whisper boasts an array of amenities. Picture the mosaic-tiled pool with an embedded Jacuzzi on the upper foredeck, offering guests an unparalleled vantage point to gaze out to the sea and coastlines. The secondary helipad moonlights as a basketball court, while the main helipad transforms into a serene outdoor lounge. A fire pit with a waterfall complements al fresco dining.

Based on a “Champagne & caviar” theme, the interior features a double-height main salon, reached via a sweeping staircase. Guests can have jazz tunes coming from the grand piano or light one of the two fireplaces for a cozier vibe. With a large sports bar that opens out across the vast deck aft, the space easily transforms into a nightclub.

The Master suite on the upper deck comprises luxurious features, including separate bathrooms, roomy wardrobes and a private Jacuzzi, while an attached office caters to business needs. The main deck houses two generous VIP suites with Art Nouveau influences, while other staterooms showcase Art Deco and Japanese themes, providing a stunning array of sleeping options.

Whisper knows a thing or two about fun on the water, with an extensive selection of action-packed water toys and accessories: three Yamaha WaveRunners, waterskis, seabobs, wakeboards, kayaks, fishing equipment, scuba diving equipment and much more. When it comes to tenders, Whisper has you covered with three tenders, including a nearly 33-foot  Hinckley Limo Tender.

The winning bidders will find themselves living in ultimate luxury surrounded by turquoise waters in the Mediterranean for one full week. Working with the ship’s captain, the itinerary will be customized to your interests based on where the ship is located during the selected dates. Whether you are dreaming of the French Riviera or the Amalfi Coast, this lot promises to be an unforgettable adventure.

As one of the largest and most sophisticated superyachts, Whisper is the ideal choice for anyone looking to experience a premier luxury vacation while enjoying the very best in design and amenities. Bid high and make it yours!
