Rothschild’s yacht Planet Nine, started as Project Nato.
Nat Rothschild is the owner of the yacht Planet Nine.
Nathaniel Rothschild is a member of the Rothschild family. The family is famous for the Rothschild & Co bank. Nat is the heir to the title of Baron Rothschild, held by his father.
The Rothschild bank was founded in 1760 by Mayer Amschel Rothschild in Frankfurt Germany. His third son Nathan Mayer von Rothschild first established a textile business in Manchester and then founded the N M Rothschild & Sons bank in London.
Rothschild is consistently in the top 10 global investment banks for mergers and acquisitions (M&A) advisory. Rothschild's financial advisory division is known to serve British nobility, including the British Royal Family.
NR Investments is the private investment vehicle of Nat Rothschild. His past and current investments include Rusal, Glencore, Volex and Asia Resource Minerals.
His father Baron Rothschild is founder of RIT Capital Partners (Rothschild Investment Trust) , an investment fund listed on the London Stock Exchange with approx US$ 4 billion in assets (and almost do debts).
The net worth of Nat Rothschild is estimated at US$ 1 billion. The net worth of the Rothschild Family is difficult to assess as it is divided among a web of descendants. More in this Financial Times article.
Nat Rothschild is (or at least was) the owner of a Bombardier Global Express with registraton N4T (which reads more or less as NAT).
The yacht Planet Nine was delivered by Admiral Yachts in 2018. She is designed by Tim Heywood, while Mlinaric, Henry and Zervudachi, London are responsible for her interior.
Planet Nine can accommodate 16 guests and a crew of 26. She is powered by 2 Caterpillar engines which bring her a top speed of 16 knots and a range of 6,000 nm. Planet Nine is available for sale, asking EUR 85 million.
We became aware of Mr. Rothschilds ownership of the yacht Planet Nine, due to the Planet Nato dispute.
The yacht Planet Nine started as Project Nano. Her construction started at Cantiere San Marco SRL. At some point during the construction a dispute over ‘progress’ and payments started.
A high court case was started in which it was disclosed that Mr. Nathaniel Rothschild was the owner of the yacht. In 2016 Boat International reported that the unfinished project was moved to another yard (which was Admiral Yachts).
During construction at San Marco a IMO number (1009716) was given to Project Nato. This same IMO number is now registered to Planet Nine.
