Albert II, Prince of Monaco Sails into Trogir on Super Luxury Yacht

Lauren Simmonds

As Morski writes on the 15th of August, 2019, the Croatian Adriatic has become mega-popular among the world’s jet-setting elite. While Bill Gates is currently sailing around in the Zadar area, after a visit to Hvar, the luxury yacht ”Arience” carrying no less than Prince Albert of Monaco arrived in Trogir.

“Prince Albert of Monaco is a guest in our city, let it be known!” A reader from Trogir informed Morski.

Albert of Monaco officially visited Croatia on April the 21st, 2009, and met with then-President Stipe Mesić. His visit remained marked in memory by his kind and humanitarian gesture of helping Croatia to clear its remaining landmines.

Prince Albert II. (full name Albert Alexandre Louis Pierre Grimaldi), is the current Prince of Monaco and head of the Grimaldi Dynasty. Son of Rainier III. and Hollywood actress Grace Kelly. Since 2011, he has been married to former swimmer Charlene Wittstock, with whom she has two children, Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques.

Albert also has two other children with two women, daughter Jazmin Grace and son Alexandra Costu, who cannot participate in the legacy of Monaco’s glorious throne because they were born outside of marriage, although Albert readily acknowledged paternity.

Interestingly, he participated in five Olympic Games from 1988 to 2002 as a member of the national bob team. He has been a member of the International Olympic Committee since back in 1985 and is chairman of the Monaco Olympic Committee.

His luxury 61-metre-long yacht, with which he sailed into the Dalmatian town of Trogir, is worth an incomprehensible 80 million US dollars, and the weekly rental of this boat is an equally mind-boggling 650,000 US dollars.

The vessel, Arience, offers accommodation for twelve guests in six cabins. Its interiors and exteriors were designed by Reymond Langton. The luxury yacht also boasts a movie theater, a plateau which acts like its own waterfront by the sea, a large club, a whole deck for the owner and several open plan living areas with spa pools.

It is powered by engines of 2005 HP each, giving it a maximum speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 13 knots. The perfect way to experience Trogir from the sea.
