The other day we wrote aboutÂ Musashi, Oracle billionaire Larry Ellisonâs new samurai-style 288-ft. Feadship. The impressive yacht was actually launched alongside a nearly identical vessel, at least on the exterior, the 288-ft. FeadshipÂ Fountainhead. Both yachts were designed by De Voogt Naval Architects with interiors by Sinot Yacht Design. Full details ofÂ Fountainheadâs dĂ©cor have not been released, so itâs difficult to say how closely it resemblesÂ Musashi, but observers have speculated that the pair of billionaires got some kind of âtwo for oneâ deal from Feadship, or at any rate saved money by doubling up on the design and build contracts.
Both feature a basketball hoop on the aft deck, in any case.Â Fountainhead features luxury accommodation for 12 guests and 16 crew including a massive ownerâs suite, and is capable of a maximum speed of 19 knots with a cruising speed of 17 knots. As for the name, Cuban is an avowed fan of author / philosopher Ayn Rand, who wrote the book of the same name. âIt was incredibly motivating to me,â Cuban has said of the novel. âsIt encouraged me to think as an individual, take risks to reach my goals, and responsibility for my successes and failures. I loved it.”
