Asking Price

In Japanese philosophy, there are five elements, of which Mizu or water is one. It represents all things fluid and flowing but also relates to adaptability, flexibility, and magnetism. Renamed by her current owner in 2013 and extensively refit in 2016, the 53m MIZU represents many characteristics attributed to her name. Her striking and almost military exterior exudes character and adventure. Her contemporary interior spaces are calm yet vibrant and an impressive range of entertainment features, including an on-deck jacuzzi and basketball court, invoke guest interaction and energy. With an exhilarating top speed of 28 knots and an impressive long-range cruising capability, this ocean-going, transoceanic yacht lives up to her name.


The 53m yacht was custom built-in 2004 by Oceanfast in Australia & was last refitted in 2016 with well over $5m USD spent. Sam Sorgiovanni is responsible for her beautiful & unique exterior & interior design. Originally named Sea Bowld, “MIZU” is built to explore the world's oceans in style & comfort. Constructed with an Aluminum hull & Aluminum superstructure, she is capable of cruising at 24 knots, a max speed of 28 knots & affords a range of 4,500 nautical miles. “MIZU” is built to some of the highest standards in the world, giving her a perfect combination of luxury & grit.
