Super Yacht Radiant visits Vilamoura
The Super Yacht Radiant arrived at Vilamoura yesterday but you won’t see her in the Marina, she’s too big being 110m long!
She has a crew of 22 to look after the 20 guests she can accommodate.
The owner, a car dealer from the United Arab Emirates paid 280 million dollars for her including the helipad, gym, spa etc. and the extreme security systems, allegedly being fitted with an “escape” launch a speedboat capable of 75 knots, an arsenal of sonic guns that fire low frequency sound waves to pierce the eardrums of approaching assailants and a military water cannon capable of sinking an approaching boat at more than 100 meters.
Originally commissioned by Boris Berezovsky in an attempt to upstage Roman Abramovitch he allegedly didn’t keep up the payments and so she was sold on.
Norton & Mackenzie offer a comprehensive portfolio of property management, long term rentals and quality holiday lets in Vilamoura.
In addition we are fully conversant with the new law regarding renting out holiday properties in Portugal should you require advice about getting a license and being compliant. Previously there were no active checks carried out, no action actually taken and hence no penalties transpiring. Under the new regime the newly appointed authorities (ASAE) have full transparency from analysing internet advertising to physical visits to properties to check who is in residence. More importantly they have the resource to do this which the local councils never had. There is evan a liaison between the tax office and utility Companies to cross check consumption in “empty” properties.
