Monaco Yacht Show - Ohana


This month's Theme Day is 'graffiti' and whilst this isn't graffiti (but a child's drawing) it sort of fits the bill. The young daughter of the owner of this beautiful yacht at the Monaco Yacht Show drew this design - Ohana means 'family' in Hawaiian. Later, as you see, he had her drawing painted onto the yacht.

Ohana is 43 metres long and is for charter in the Mediterranean in summer and the Caribbean in winter. She's also for sale at $24 million.

It is a great idea to have a child's art on the yatch. Very meaningful!

On the one hand this is a charming story and, admittedly, a beautiful boat. On the other hand, luxury yachts and that sort of thing disturb me. They reflect huge self-absorption and lack of social consciousness. I'm not religious but when I see this I think of Jesus' observation that it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Well, maybe Bill Gates and Warren Buffet would slip through. I know, I'm rambling.

It's interesting.

I thought is said OBAMA at first. A charming take on our theme today Jilly. You never let us down.

It's the best kind of graffiti ... The Livorno really threw me off --- was I on the right blog? The price is a little steep for me by $23,990,000. I saw such luxurious yachts on Croatian coast -- a lot of them from UK.

Hilda said...

That is such a sweet thing to do! The mirror finish of the boat is stunning. And of course, I can't help but think of VP!

Jilly said...

Hilda, yes I commented on VP's Livorno blog and told him there is a little something for him on Monte Carlo DP!

Gunn said...

Sweet, and quite unique!:)

Nathalie said...

Haaaaa I just burst out laughing. Carefully chosen design on a posh gleaming yacht. Is that the worst kind of graffiti you can encounter in Monaco? LOL

No seriously Jilly - any graffiti in Monaco's back streets or none at all?

VP said...

A lovely and creative idea for a wonderful boat. I hope to see sometime this great yacht in her home port...

Mo said...

A great interpretation of the theme

Jazzy said...

cute.
happy theme day!

I think that Bob Crowe's comment is very interesting; apparently hit a nerve with him. Despite the obvious materialism, I certainly do prefer the yacht to mindless graffiti, which this doesn't appear to be but it is again, using someone else's canvas.

Jilly said...

Kate, the father of the child who created the image owns the yacht and doubtless using the drawing is a way (a charming way) of treasuring his child's art.

Sweet! I like this better than graffiti any day.

Ben said...

If I find this, I think I will smile and take a snap. It's kind of fun play as I assume it can be wiped out. Nice find!

Ineke said...

A very interesting and sweet kind of graphic image, very proper for Monaco and of course the yacht is splendid!

Only $24 million. That's a bargain!
