The yacht Symphony is not available for charter. Some of the photos of the yacht Symphony on this page by DutchMegaYachts.

Bernard Arnault

The yacht Symphony is owned by French industrialist Bernard Arnault.

Who is Bernard Arnault?

He is the chairman and CEO of the French conglomerate LVMH, the largest luxury-products company in the world. He is Europe’s 2nd richest person.

Bernard Arnault Net Worth

According to Forbes Magazine, Arnault is the world's 4th richest person, with a net worth of USD 84 billion. This makes him the richest man in France.


LVMH Moët Hennessy • Louis Vuitton S.A., better known as LVMH, is a French multinational luxury goods conglomerate headquartered in Paris, France formed after the merger between the champagne producer Moët & Chandon and manufacturer of cognac Hennessy in 1971, becoming Moët Hennessy.

In 1987 Moët Hennessy merged with fashion house Louis Vuitton, 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.

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

Royal Van Lent Shipyard

Through LVMH Bernard Arnault 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 Arnault 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 yacht 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 Mr. Bernard Arnault and his family.

Luxury Yacht Amadeus

Arnault’s previous yacht is named Amadeus. She was built  in 1969 as a research vessel and 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

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

Bernard ArnaultPrivate Jet

Arnault owns a Dassault Falcon 7X private jet with registration OY-FWO. He 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 (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.

Bernard Arnault is the world’s 2nd richest yacht owner

La personne la plus riche d'France

Le yacht Symphony est la propriété de l'industriel français Bernard Arnault. Bernard Arnault est la 2ème personne la plus riche d'Europe. Il est connu sous le nom de président et chef de la direction du conglomérat français LVMH, la plus grande société de produits de luxe au monde.

USD 84 milliards Valeur nette

Selon le magazine Forbes, Arnault est la 4ème personne la plus riche du monde, avec une valeur nette de USD 84 milliards


LVMH Moët Hennessy • Louis Vuitton S.A., plus connu sous le nom de LVMH, est un conglomérat multinational français de produits de luxe dont le siège social se situe à Paris, après la fusion entre Moët & Chandon et le fabricant du cognac Hennessy en 1971, devenu Moët Hennessy. En 1987, Moët Hennessy a fusionné avec la maison de mode Louis Vuitton, créant le groupe actuel. LVMH contrôle environ 60 filiales qui gèrent chacune un petit nombre de marques prestigieuses.

Les filiales sont souvent gérées de manière indépendante. Christian Dior, le groupe des biens de luxe, est le principal holding de LVMH, détient 42,36% de ses actions et 59,01% de ses droits de vote. Bernard Arnault, actionnaire majoritaire de Dior, est président des deux sociétés et chef de la direction de LVMH.

Royal Van Lent Shipyard

Grâce à LVMH, Bernard Arnault est également le propriétaire du constructeur de yachts de luxe Royal Van Lent, qu'il a acquis en 2008 pour plus de 300 millions d'euros. Van Lent a effectivement construit son yacht actuel.

Sonata Yachting Ltd

Nous avons la preuve que Arnault est le véritable propriétaire du yacht Symphony: les Comptes annuels de Van Lent Holding (une société néerlandaise) mentionnent que le projet 808 a été livré à une société dénommée Sonata Yachting Limited à Malte.

Et les comptes annuels de LVMH mentionnent que cette société Sonata Yachting Limited fait partie des sociétés groupées consolidées. À notre grande surprise, la construction du yacht n'est pas mentionnée comme une «transaction par correspondance» spécifique

Luxury Yacht Amadeus

Le vieux yacht d'Arnault s'appelle Amadeus. Elle a été construite en 1969 en tant que navire de recherche et a été transformée en superyacht en 2007. Elle a une coque brise-glace. Le yacht Amadeus a eu de nombreux visiteurs célèbres, y compris l'ancien Premier ministre britannique Tony Blair et le rock star Bono.

Maison Bernard Arnault

Arnault vit dans un grand manoir ou en fait dans un château proche d'une ville de Paris.

Arnault possède également une grande maison de vacances dans une communauté fermée à Saint-Tropez. On dit en outre qu'il possède une île nommée Indigo Island aux Bahamas. Il a acheté l'île pour 35 millions de dollars.

Jet privé

Arnault est propriétaire d'un jet privé Dassault Falcon 7X immatriculé OY-FWO. Il a été livré en 2013 et a un incroyable travail de peinture verte. Pour des raisons fiscales, le jet est immatriculé au Danemark. Un Dassault Falcon 7X a un prix courant de 40 millions de dollars. Auparavant, il était propriétaire d'un Bombardier Global Express immatriculé F-GVML.
