The yacht is named after the greatest samurai ever: Miyamoto Musashi. Miyamoto Musashi was an samurai expert. A Japanese swordsman and ronin who lived from 1584 until 1645.
A ronin was a samurai without a lord or master during the feudal period of Japan. A samurai became masterless from the death or fall of his master. Or or after the loss of his master's favor or privilege.
He authored The Book of Five Rings. A book on strategy, tactics and philosophy that is still studied today.
In September 2013 the yacht attended the America’s Cup. Hosting guests of Larry Ellison. Early 2014 Musashi was spotted in Honolulu, Hawaii.
