The luxurious Italian superyacht named “VIANNE” has been on the market for sale since last month, and now its owners say they will accept payments in cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The 52-metre vessel which first went on sale in October is valued at EUR 8.9 million (about Rs 75.4 crore). As buyers could not come after the yacht’s sale, its sales team announced to accept NFTs as payment in bitcoin, ethereum, dogecoin, solana as well as cryptopunks or the Bored app.
Largest luxury yacht ever to accept crypto and NFT Pay, Vianne is complete with a helipad, hot tub on deck, and Ralph Lauren furniture among other amenities. The ship’s structure is designed by Italian expert Stefano Natucci.
The buyer must pay a minimum 10 percent deposit in fiat currency before opting to complete the balance payment in crypto or NFT assets. NFTs are digital collectibles, valued at up to $8.5 million (approximately Rs 63 crore).
The VIANNE can accommodate up to 12 guests in 5 staterooms and is crewed by 12 experienced crew members, led by well-known Italian captain Alberto Zambelli. PR Newswire
