SY Vertigo was built by New Zealand’s Alloy Yachts and was delivered to her owner in 2011.
The yacht is designed by Phillipe Briand, with interior design by Christian Liaigre. Liaigre also designed the interior of Rosehearty, Murdoch’s other sail yacht.
She is powered by 2 Caterpillar engines. Which bring her a top speed of 17 knots. Her cruising speed is 12 knots.
The yacht’s interior is very child friendly, with a TV-room for the owners two younger children. Vertigo has a gym and a beach club, each featuring large hull openings.
The yacht can accommodate 12 guests and has a crew of 11.
There are rumors on the Internet that Mr. Murdoch is the owner of the SY Vertigo yacht. However, Superyachtfan received a message from Y.CO that Mr. Murdoch is actually NOT the owner of Vertigo.
Superyachtfan is not sure who owns Vertigo. But until somebody sends us an e-mail with the name of the actual owner, we will hold on to Mr. Murdoch. (We must admit that the ‘child-friendliness’ does not really link ownership to Murdoch, but more to Lachlan Murdoch). It is very possible that the yacht is owned by Rupert’s son Lachlan Murdoch. He also owns the sailing yacht Sarissa. Lachlan Murdoch’s net worth is estimated at $ 2 billion.
