Who is Bernard  ArnaultBernard 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. He was born in March 1949. He is married to Helene. He has 4 children.

He is owner of the yacht Symphony.

Who is the Owner of LVMH?

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.

What are the Other 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.

Who Owns 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.

What About 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.

What Was Arnault’s Previous Yacht?

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.

How Much is Bernard Arnault Worth?

According to Forbes Magazine, Arnault is the world's 3rd  richest person. He has a net worth of US$ 100 billion. This makes him the richest man in France.  He is actually the 3rd person in the world with a net worth of (more than) US$ 100 billion.

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.

In April 2019 Arnault announced that he would donate EUR 200 million for the rebuilt of the Notre Dame. The Notre Dame de Paris is a medieval Catholic cathedral on the Île de la Cité in the 4th arrondissement of Paris.

While undergoing renovation and restoration, the roof of Notre-Dame caught fire on the evening of 15 April 2019. Burning for around 15 hours, the cathedral sustained serious damage. Including the destruction of the spire and most of the roof above the stone vaulted ceiling.

Grâce à LVMH, il 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.
