Yacht Vanish

Larry van Tuyl - Fact Sheet

Yacht Name: Vanish

Yacht Length: 66 m (217 ft)

Guests: 12 in 6 cabins

Crew: 19 in 8 cabins

Yacht Value: US$ 125 million +

Owners Name: Larry Van Tuyl

Owners Net Worth: US$ 3.5 billion

Owners Company: Berkshire Hathaway Automotive

Owners Country: USA

Larry Van Tuyl previously owned the 50 meter Westport Vango.

The yacht Vanish is owned by Larry Van Tuyl. SuperYachtFan comes to this conclusion as some yacht industry sources mention that ‘the buyer of Feadship’s project 809 (which is now named Vanish), used to own a 50 meter yacht, which was recently sold by Northrop&Johnson, had helicopter capacities and a captain named David’.

Westport Vango

This can only be the Westport yacht Vango, which ‘ticks all the boxes’. It is public knowledge that the yacht Vango was owned by Larry van Tuyl. Also the names make sense: Van Tuyl - Vango - Vanish. We do not think that Feadship started the project 809 on speculation so she was probably built for another owner, who decided to sell during construction.

Eidsgaard Design

Vanish is styled by Eidsgaard Design. Some of her features are a three-deck-high atrium, rising from the main deck to the sundeck and a beach club with a permanent view from the transom. The VIP Suite can split into two staterooms. Vanish has a crew of 19.

US$ 125 million Value

The luxury yacht Vanish has a value of at least USD 125 million. Vanish is not available for charter.


Vanish has an helicopter tender, with registration N735VT. The Eurocopter EC135-T3 is registered to Aerohead Aviation.
