Larry Van Tuyl previously owned the 50 meter Westport Vango. In December 2018 Vanish was sold, she is now named Hampshire. Vanish was considered an ‘intermediate’ boat, as Van Tuyl had plans to order an even bigger yacht. His new 72 meter Feadship will be delivered in 2021.

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.

Van Tuyl Group

The company was originally known as the Van Tuyl Group. And was founded in 1948 by Cecil Van Tuyl. He 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.

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.

M/Y Vanish

The motor yacht Vanish was 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’.


She is powered by 2 MTU engines. Which bring her a max speed of 18 knots. Her cruise speed is 12 knots. She has a range of more than 5,200nm. The yacht can accommodate 12 guests and a crew of 17.

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 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 17.

Vanish Boat Cost

The luxury yacht Vanish has a value of US$ 125 million.

Is She Available for Yacht Charter

The boat is not available for yacht charter but was listed for sale in October 2018.


She was sold in 2019 and is now named Hampshire . This name could indicate that she is added to the fleet of Jim Ratcliffe. Do you know more about the current owner of the yacht? Please do send us a message.

Update: She is the new yacht for Andrew Curry. He is a director at Ineos and business partner of Jim Ratcliffe. His net worth is US$ 4 billion.
