Launched in 1986, Cedar Sea II’s owner initially commissioned a smaller yacht. “If I have to wait three years for a 40 meter yacht, I might as well have a 60 meter plus version,” was his memorable response when told how full order books were at the time. Cedar Sea II, was commissioned by a jeweler, whose exquisite tiaras had graced most of the world’s royal families. Highly enthusiastic, the owner visited the Feadship yard every 10 days or so to add extra, self-designed touches to the interior. These included a stunning array of precious metals and antique art, which were incorporated throughout the yacht.
