The yacht Planet Nine was delivered by Admiral Yachts in 2018. She is a yacht designed by Tim Heywood. Mlinaric, Henry, and Zervudach in London are responsible for her interior. She is an explorer yacht with a helicopter hangar on the upper deck.
The Planet Nine yacht 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. Her cruising speed is 12 knots. Her range is 6,000 nm.
What is Planet Nine?
The yacht’s name refers to a hypothetical dwarf planet. The planet is orbiting the sun in the outer region of the Solar System. Its gravity could explain the unlikely clustering of bodies that orbit beyond Neptune.
Evidence for this Planet suggests that the gravity from a large undiscovered object is influencing the orbits of the most distant known Solar System objects.
Its unclear if the Planet exists. There is no evidence for planet nine. Efforts have failed to directly observe the ninth planet.
The yacht’s owner is Nat Rothschild.
We became aware of Mr. Rothschilds ownership of the yacht due to the Planet Nato dispute.
Project Nato Dispute
The yacht started as Project Nato. 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. This yard was Admiral Yachts.
During construction at San Marco, an IMO number (1009716) was given to Project Nato. This same IMO number is now registered to luxury yacht Planet Nine.
