Rein Wuerth’s Infamous Buy Is A Luxury Yacht Called Vibrant Curiosity

The recession has hit everyone rather differently. The rich are ok but the poor are getting poorer. Let’s take the example set by German billionaire Reinhold Wuerth. He is number 93 on The Forbes 2009 list and has made all the moolah thanks to his screw manufacturing business. That apart, the man has been in news for laying off his workers by faking a recession. And now, he has gone on to buy a $100 million yacht.

Touted as a convicted tax evader, this man is busy celebrating the christening of his newly-acquired super yacht, the Vibrant Curiosity. This 85-meter yacht was built at the Oceano dock near Rotterdam. Two diesel engines generate 4,680 horsepower and make it achieve a speed of 18.5 knots.

The interior is also very luxurious. There is a large master cabin accompanied by opulent a VIP suite and several other luxury cabins for 14 guests. Wuerth is keeping mum about his new purchase. The liner is impressive but the infamous history of the owner is difficult to ignore when judging this vessel.

    I saw this yacht docked in the Nassau Harbour April 6, 2010. I was on a Carnival cruise and it was in front of our ship. Someone told me it was owned by Beyonce and Jay-z. But found out other wise when I Googled it.

  7. Tony

    This Yacht just pulled in since last night here in St. Georges, Bermuda. Quite impressive. I can’t even imagine sailing on a yacht so large. Boggles my mind!

  8. Jeff

    It is a breathtaking vision to behold!

    It was docked at St. George in Bermuda Tuesday. I was on the Explorer of the Seas and the seas and the winds were making voyaging on the ocean rather challenging for our 1,000+ mega ship. It would have been a rather bouncy ride on something so much smaller. This yacht is like the fancy sports car that looks fantastic just sitting in place. It is a beauty.

    This yacht is currently docked in Malta at the drydocks undergoing repairs.
