The stunning 57-footer, VENDETTA was penned by naval architect Doug Zurn and was built in 2005 for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame musician Billy Joel.

Styled in the classic manner of the commuter yachts of the 1920s, VENDETTA boasts ample cockpit space and luxurious interior appointments. VENDETTA features a classic design, with modern mechanicals, electronics, and amenities and massive power.

As the perfect entertainment platform for up to 12 passengers, VENDETTA fulfills the vision of a unique group of yachtsmen striving to create the perfect luxury/commuter boat.

Weighing considerably less than other yachts of her size, VENDETTA glides atop the open ocean at speeds approaching 50 knots on an advanced composite hull built of hybrid Kevlar.

VENDETTA recently completed a 2.5 year refit in 2019. The result is one of the finest examples of a unique, yet practical, custom-designed watercrafts residing on the West Coast.
