Despite its enticing name, this yacht is leaving many enthusiasts hungry for more. The Forbes-ranked retired German industrialist who owns the yacht has not satisfied anyone’s curiosity, preferring to enjoy this spectacular Nuvolari-Lenard design in channels less traveled. A few alert photographers have been able to capture images of the yacht during its travels from Norway to Gilbraltar, but only from afar. Oceanco ushered in a new era with the launch of Amevi, followed by Alfa Nero and Anastasia, Vibrant Curiosity’s predecessors. Azure Naval Architects designed the steel hull, which has twin 4,680hp MTU engines, a cruising speed of 18.5 knots and a range of 5,000 nm. The yacht accommodates up to 14 guests. The owner’s manufacturing-based fortune is estimated at approximately 5.2 billion.
