Bernard Jean Étienne Arnault

The yacht is owned by French industrialist Bernard Jean Étienne Arnault.

He is the chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the French conglomerate LVMH. It is the largest luxury goods company in the world. He is Europe’s 2nd richest person.

Bernard ArnaultBernard Arnault Net Worth

According to Forbes Magazine, Arnault is the world's fourth richest person. He has a net worth of USD 84 billion. This makes him the richest man in France.

Through his holding company he is a real estate investor. He is also an art collector. In 2017 he donated US$ 170 million to form the LVMH Arts Museum. The museum is designed by Frank Gehry.

The Louis Vuitton Foundation promotes art and culture.  It is run as a legally separate, nonprofit entity.


LVMH (Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton S.A. is a French multinational luxury brands conglomerate. The company is headquartered in Paris, France. It is formed after a merger. Between the champagne producer Moët & Chandon and manufacturer of cognac Hennessy in 1971. The name became Moët Hennessy then.

In 1987 Moët Hennessy merged with fashion house Louis Vuitton. Thus creating the current group. LVMH controls around 60 subsidiaries. That each manage a small number of prestigious brands. The subsidiaries are often managed independently. Christian Dior the luxury goods group, is the main holding company of LVMH. Owning 42.36% of its shares, and 59.01% of its voting rights.

Arnault is majority shareholder of Dior. He is Chairman of both companies and CEO of LVMH.

LVMH Brands

The luxury group owns many brands including Acqua di Parma, Givenchy and Guerlain. Other brands are Kenzo Parfums and of course Louis Vuitton.

The company als owns the famous TAG Heuer watch brand.

Royal Van Lent Shipyard

Through LVMH he is also the owner of luxury yacht builder Royal Van Lent. Which he acquired in 2008 for more than EUR 300 million. Van Lent actually built his current yacht.

Sonata Yachting Ltd

We’ve got some proof that he is the actual owner of the yacht Symphony. The Annual Accounts of Van Lent Holding (a Dutch company) mention that project 808 was delivered. To a company named Sonata Yachting Limited in Malta.

And the Annual accounts of LVMH mention that this company Sonata Yachting Limited is part of the Group’s consolidated companies. To our surprise the building of the yacht is not mentioned as a specific ‘related party transaction’.

Update on the ownership of the superyacht Symphony:

In the 2017 annual accounts of LVMH Group it was disclosed that:. “ a Royal Van Lent subsidiary, the owner and operator of a vessel for business use. Was sold to a subsidiary of Groupe Arnault for consideration of 54 million euros. Groupe Arnault has assumed all liabilities and commitments incurred and entered into by the company prior to the sale.”

So they consider Symphony a ‘vessel for business use’. Which is probably why the transaction was not disclosed as ‘related party transaction’.

Groupe Arnault SAS is the private investment holding for Arnault and his family.

Luxury Yacht Amadeus

his previous yacht is named Amadeus. She was built in 1969 as a research vessel. And she was converted to a superyacht in 2007. She has an icebreaker hull.

The yacht Amadeus had many famous visitors. Including former UK prime minister Tony Blair and rock star Bono.

Bernard Arnault House

He lives with his wife Helene in a large mansion or actually a Chateaux. Situated in a town close to Paris. He also owns a large holiday house in a gated community in St Tropez. Further he is said to own an island. It is named Indigo Island in the Bahamas. He purchased the island for US$ 35 million.

Private Jet

He owns a Dassault Falcon 7X private jet with registration OY-FWO. The jet was delivered in 2013. And has an amazing green paint job. For tax reason the jet is registered in Denmark.

A Dassault Falcon 7X has a list price of US$ 40 million. He previously owned a Bombardier Global Express with registration F-GVML.

Delphine Arnault and Xavier Niel

Bernard’s daughter Delphine Arnault has a relation with French billionaire Xavier Niel. Niel is the co-owner of the French news paper Le Monde. And he is founder of Iliad. Iliad is known for the French Internet provider Free.fr.

He is also owner of Monaco Telecom. The net worth of Xavier Niel is US$ 9 billion. In November 2017 French news paper Le Monde disclosed that Niel is the owner of the sailing yacht Phocea.
