Motor Yacht Vanish

The yacht Vanish is owned by Larry Van Tuyl.

SuperYachtFan comes to this conclusion as some yacht industry sources mention that ‘the buyer of Feadship’s project 809 (which is now named Vanish), used to own a 50 meter yacht, which was recently sold by Northrop&Johnson, had helicopter capacities and a captain named David’. This can only be the Westport yacht Vango, which ‘ticks all the boxes’.

Yacht Vango

It is public knowledge that the yacht Vango was owned by Larry van Tuyl. Also the names make sense: Van Tuyl - Vango - Vanish. We do not think that Feadship started the project 809 on speculation so she was probably built for another owner, who decided to sell during construction.

Yacht Vanish Interior

Vanish was built by Feadship and is styled by Eidsgaard Design. Some of her features are a three-deck-high atrium, rising from the main deck to the sundeck and a beach club with a permanent view from the transom.

The VIP Suite can split into two staterooms. Vanish has a crew of 19.

Yacht Vanish Cost

The luxury yacht Vanish has a value of USD 125 million. Vanish is not available for charter, but was listed for sale in October 2018.

Larry van Tuyl

Who is Larry van Tuyl? He is Chairman at Berkshire Hathaway Automotive. Berkshire Hathaway Automotive is one of the largest dealership groups in America, with over US$ 9 billion in revenue and 81 independently operated dealerships with over 100 franchises in 10 US states.

Larry Van TuylVan Tuyl Group

The company was originally known as the Van Tuyl Group, and was founded in 1948 by Cecil Van Tuyl (who passed away in 2012 at age 85).

The Van Tuyl Group became the fifth-largest car dealership group in the U.S, with 78 dealerships selling 240,000 vehicles per year.

In 2015 the Van Tuyl family sold their company to Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway for US$ 4.1 billion.

Van Trust Real Estate

Larry van Tuyl is also a real estate investor through his VanTrust Real Estate. VanTrust Real Estate is a full-service real estate development company based in Kansas City.

The company creates real estate assets for both internal portfolio holdings as well as disposition opportunities.

Larry Van Tuyl Net Worth

The net worth of the Van Tuyl family is estimated at US$ 3.5 billion.

Private Jet

Larry Van Tuyl owns a Gulfstream G280 private jet with registration N711VT and a helicopter with registration N735VT which is permanently based on his yacht.

Larry Van Tuyl House

Larry and his wife Pat van Tuyl live in a large house in Paradise Valley Arizona. They recently (August 2017) bought a large compound in Newport Beach, California for US$ 55 million.

As that main house looks quite outdated we think they will be building a new house.
