The 164-ft. Heesen superyacht Man of Steel (above) is for sale via global online luxury marketplace JamesList for $50 million. Built in 2008, the tri-deck ship with helipad takes its name from the use of hot rolled steel threaded seamlessly and worked in elegantly throughout the yacht. The main stairway floats off of the wall, supported on a steel column, while the stairs themselves are created out of steel with carpet inserts. Steel is also a notable element in the reveals of the maccasar ebony cabinetry. That and the floating glass floor over a bed of black river rock encountered upon entering the yacht mark it as one-of-a-kind among ultra-luxury cruisers.
The full-sized glass owner's suite has 240-degree views and a bed that rotates to take them all in. The owner's balcony contains a private negative edge spa and its own sundeck. The lower level and "pop-culture" themed family room are Moroccan-inspired with bright colors and a specially-commissioned Bisazza tile mural. Key elements of the modern Art Deco-inspired salon space include maccasar ebony, period-correct sterling silver, crystal, and a platinum color scheme. Asian and Zen influences can be seen in the custom platforms for the furniture, the square proportions of the cushions, and the glass encased black river rock floor.
