Naomi Campbell Sets Sail on Bleu de Nimes

Call it the summer of the sybaritic supermodels and their superyachts; in the wake of Kate Moss’ voyage aboard Sir Philip Green’s Lionchase, Naomi Campbell has been doing a bit of luxury yachting herself. Campbell and her Russian billionaire boyfriend Vladislav Doronin have been cruising the coast of Turkey in the Bleu de Nimes (above), an ultra-luxe 197-ft. explorer-style superyacht originally built by Clelands of England in 1980 and refitted in 2007. The charter is said to be costing the chic couple close to $300,000 per week. With beautiful wood paneling throughout and classic Asian-inspired décor rife with antiques, the yacht may look a bit dated from the outside, but the inside boasts an incredibly stylish and elegant interior of nearly 6,000 square feet.

She can accommodate up to 12 guests in 9 cabins including a massive master cabin with en suite his and hers bathroom, a study and dressing areas. A crew of 21 including two private chefs looks after the demanding supermodel’s every whim. While lacking a swimming pool, the vessel does have a fully-equipped gym where Campbell can maintain her legendary figure, while Doronin attends to business in the office / library. Boarding in Bodrum, the couple traveled to the seaside town of Datca and are exploring the Greek islands as well.
