Her main engines are 4 x MTU 1163 Diesels, which generate 10.064 HP each and enable Carinthia VII to reach a maximum speed of 26 knots.

12 Guests and a Crew of 25

The yacht accommodates 12 guests with 25 crew. Famous yacht designer Tim Heywood was responsible for both interior and exterior design.

Based in Venice

Until recently Carinthia VII rarely left the International Yacht Club of Antibes, but she is now based in Venice Italy.

The Horten Family owned more Yachts

Mrs. Horten and her late husband have owned several other large yachts, all named Carinthia. In 1965, Carinthia V sunk on her first voyage, after she hit an unmapped rock. She was replaced by Carinthia VI, which was renamed The One and owned by Italian real estate developer Francesco Bellavista Caltagirone.

The One

Unfortunately early 2016 The One was destroyed in a fire in Marmaris, Turkey. The yacht Carinthia is not available for charter. But enquire now, for your ultimate charter experience on similar yachts!

Heidi Horten

Heidi Horten is the richest woman in Austria.

US$ 1 Billion Inheritance

She married Helmut Horten in 1966 at the age of 25, while he was 57. In 1987 she inherited an USD 1 billion fortune from him. Her net worth is now estimated at USD 2.8 billion (August 2016).

Helmut Horten

Helmut Horten (1909 - 1987) was a German entrepreneur who built up the fourth-largest chain of department stores in Germany. Horten introduced Germany's first supermarket after a visit to the United States. With the copied business model his group expanded rapidly. In 1968 he floated his group on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. At that moment Horten’s group had 25,000 employees and annual sales of USD 1 billion.

Sold his Company in 1972

In 1972 Horten sold his majority stake and retired from the business, which lost a great deal of value soon afterwards. In 1994 the chain was bought by Kauhof Holding AG, and merged in to the German retail group METRO AG in 1996.
