Calming taupe and cream tones blend seamlessly with a rich array of darker textures and pronounced metals, resulting in a timeless and elegant environment. All furnishings in the main salon, including a dining table for up to 12 guests, are complemented with exquisite feature lighting and ornaments, creating warm and atmospheric spaces that guests will not want to leave.

The impressive full-beam owner’s suite is located forward on the main deck and is wonderfully spacious with multifunctional areas, the cabin also benefits from an abundance of natural light and superb ocean views through opening windows. Tay wood panelling throughout with dark oak framing adds to the sense of grandeur of this calm and relaxed space, with exquisite hand selected marble work in the ensuite and dressing room which features a central bath, two separate showers, twin toilets and his and her sinks.

The full beam sky lounge on the upper deck provides an additional standout area for recreation and entertainment, with sophisticated seating and a bar area with floor to ceiling windows leading straight out onto the upper aft deck. The guest cabins are located on the lower deck and comprise of two doubles, two twins and one VIP cabin which is located on the starboard side of the upper deck.

Heesen launch 55m M/Y Reliance, formerly known as Project Gemini

The 55m steel hull superyacht if due for delivery this autumn and will immediately be available for charter….

Image for article Heesen launch 55m M/Y Reliance, formerly known as Project Gemini

Heesen have announced the launch of YN 19755, formerly known as Project Gemini and now named M/Y Reliance. The yacht began as a speculative venture, and the client, introduced by Arcon Yachts Monaco, joined 15 months into the construction - early enough for Heesen's engineering team to accommodate some essential modifications that allowed the owners to personalise the yacht to their taste and lifestyle.

The changes include an opening window in the master stateroom and a new layout for their bathroom, as well as windows in the transom door to allow natural light into the beach club.

"We are pleased that Heesen was able to meet yet another important milestone in the construction of this 55-metre. The experience of the shipyard in the construction of its Series yachts is an awesome guarantee for our clients. Time is priceless for our customers," says Richard Kaye of Arcon Yachts. "Consequently, for us as the broker, it is invaluable that the shipyard can stick to the schedule. It reinforces our credibility and reassures the client about their choice."

The shark grey hull – a choice of the owners, to imbue their yacht with a strong character – matches the exterior by Frank Laupman and echoes the distinctive ‘shark tooth’ in the overhang of the superstructure – a signature design feature that embellishes the profile.

M/Y Reliance marks the debut of Heesen's collaboration with Luca Dini Design and Architecture. The Italian designer and his team worked closely with the owners and Arcon's project manager to adapt the design to their taste.

Twelve guests are accommodated in six spacious staterooms, with the 82-square-metre owners' apartment traditionally located on the main deck forward and the VIP on the bridge deck. The remaining guest cabins – two doubles and two twins – are on the lower deck.

"I would like to congratulate our incredible colleagues for their commitment to working hard to meet this important deadline," says Rick van de Wetering, Heesen COO. “It is a collective success that we also achieved thanks to the impeccable collaboration with our suppliers, who are an integral part of our success and who we consider part of our extended family.”

MY Reliance is due for delivery in Fall 2022 and will join the exclusive charter fleet of Arcon Yachts.

The 55M Steel model features a Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) and a ‘shark grey’ hull chosen by her Owner to match her strong, sturdy appearance by Frank Laupman and harmonise with the ‘shark tooth’ overhang in the superstructure.  Luca Dini Design and Architecture produced the interiors, working closely with the Owners and their representatives to adapt the design to their aesthetic.

Video: Turkey yacht with 110 tourists catches fire, people jump for life

India Today Video Desk

A fire broke out on a tour boat in Muğla's Marmaris district, resulting in the evacuation of 110 people and leaving four injured, three of them seriously.

Authorities determined that the blaze originated in the engine room of the vessel.

The incident occurred at around 4.30 pm on July 14 on the 20-meter-long tour boat named 'Eagles,' which was anchored at Goat Island.

As flames engulfed the boat, panic-stricken local and foreign tourists jumped into the water. Nearby boats, other tour vessels, and Coast Guard teams rushed to the scene, rescuing many of those who had leapt overboard.

Emergency services quickly responded, ensuring the safe evacuation of all 110 people on board. The injured were promptly taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Across river from lavish Indian wedding, frustration and flooded streets

The extravagant nuptials of Anant Ambani were a national Rorschach test: awe-inspiring showcase of Indian affluence or indictment of lopsided development?

Key takeaways

Summary is AI-generated, newsroom-reviewed.

  • Ambani's extravagant wedding contrasts with Mumbai's infrastructure woes
  • Residents frustrated by government's priorities, lack of basic services
  • Event showcases India's wealth disparity, sparks national debate

MUMBAI — On two streets half a mile apart last week, life in this city was disrupted for two very different reasons.

On one side of the Mithi River, police fanned out to divert traffic and provide security for the wedding of Anant Ambani , the son of Asia’s richest man, and employees in the business district were asked to work from home. On the other side of a busy bridge, entire neighborhoods surrounding the thoroughfare known as LBS Road were submerged under monsoon rains — the perennial result, residents say, of an outdated drainage system and hapless city administrators.

As Indians consumed the wall-to-wall media coverage this past week of the most expensive wedding in history, the Ambani family affair has become a national Rorschach test. Some saw an awe-inspiring showcase for India’s growing affluence and its rising clout. Others called it an indictment of its lopsided development; the cost of the wedding, which was widely reported to exceed $500 million, would eclipse the yearly education budget of several small Indian states.

Here on the far side of the river, in the low-lying alleys and honking boulevards of working-class Mumbai, the most common reaction to the extravaganza was not resentment toward Ambani but frustration — about a system that catered to the whims of the exalted few yet rarely delivered for the many.

Social anxiety can be limiting. There are ways to get relief.

Social anxiety can be limiting. There are ways to get relief.

Naushad Ahmed, a burly, middle-class mechanic who owns an auto repair shop on a flood-prone stretch of LBS Road, wondered how the city could deploy resources for the Ambani wedding but fail to tackle basic infrastructure. He wanted potholes to be filled. He begged for a solution to the knee-deep floodwater that ruined businesses during every monsoon and turned alleys into canals of floating trash.

“Look, Ambani earned his money, and it’s his right to spend it on his own children,” Ahmed said, echoing a commonly heard refrain. Mumbai, after all, was a city that understood hard work and celebrated success. “But it’s no surprise that the government makes everything easy for him,” Ahmed continued. “If the government did as much for us as they did for him, then things could really be great.”

The four-month nuptials, which ended Monday, kick-started in March with a pre-wedding ceremony attended by Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Rihanna. Then came a Mediterranean yacht trip for 800 guests in May. The festivities culminated with the blowout bash at the Jio World Convention Center in Mumbai, a gleaming 18½-acre project developed by Anant Ambani’s father Mukesh, who took partial control of his father Dhirubhai’s business, Reliance Industries, in 1981 and turned it into an empire worth $250 billion today.

On Saturday night, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stopped by to offer his blessings. Former British prime minister Boris Johnson was seen shuffling to bhangra music. Anant Ambani’s groomsmen, including the Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan, took pictures with the $200,000 Audemars Piguet watches that they had received as gifts from the host. And a viral video captured a scantily clad Kim Kardashian milling near Mamata Banerjee, the matronly doyenne of West Bengal politics.

The influx of guests has been so great that during the pre-wedding in March, the Indian air force ordered around-the-clock operations and built new roads, taxiways and immigration counters at a dual-use airfield. This past weekend, Mumbai police closed roads near the wedding venue, and travelers complained on social media that flights out of Mumbai International Airport were delayed by a flurry of private jet traffic.

In a nod to public service, the Ambanis in recent months have thrown large feasts for 51,000 ordinary residents in Gujarat. In a Mumbai suburb, they arranged a mass wedding for 50 poor couples, who received gold jewelry. Reliance, the family conglomerate that has holdings spanning oil, telecommunications, media and retail, has framed the sprawling affair as a celebration of India’s success. “The presence of esteemed individuals highlights India’s economic, political, intellectual, and scientific prowess,” the company said in a statement to Reuters.

But to many in Mumbai and beyond, the contrasting images — of international VIPs paying respects to Ambani and of straining public infrastructure — pointed to a deeper truth about India today. It wasn’t just LBS Road in Mumbai that was flooded in recent weeks. Monsoon rains have paralyzed New Delhi, snapped 12 bridges in Bihar state and even ruptured the roof of an airport terminal in the nation’s capital , sparking angry commentary on debate shows and op-ed pages.

Jayati Ghosh, an economist at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, said the meteoric rise of Ambani and the rest of India’s 200 billionaires, who collectively hold nearly $1 trillion, according to Forbes , could unbalance India’s development at a time when other economic metrics are lagging.

Until recently, China invested nearly a quarter of its gross domestic product on infrastructure at its peak, but India has hovered around 2 percent, Ghosh said. Meanwhile, Brazil and South Africa, two other developing countries with extreme wealth disparities, invest 17 and 15 percent of their GDP, respectively, on social services compared with India’s 9 percent, according to the World Bank and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

While Modi has been widely praised for emphasizing infrastructure and social spending compared to previous administrations, he will have to make up for years of underinvestment.

The bigger issue here, Ghosh argued, was the misplaced priorities of India’s ruling class.

“The fact that you can hire Rihanna or Justin Bieber is supposed to be a sign of India’s strength, but it’s not,” she said. “Why worry about waterlogged roads when you can fly in a helicopter?”

But near the wedding venue, many residents didn’t begrudge the clan often called India’s “first family.” Sweaty welders said they sold contractors 50 tons of steel just to build the event’s awnings and made good money in the process. Outside the gleaming Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Center at Dhirubhai Ambani Square, streets smelled like citrus blossoms. A group of young students huddled under a tree, reveling in the celebrities they saw and the $38 they made working as caterers the night before.

Dev Kanojiya, a stylish 20-year-old college student, said he passed an interview to get the job after proving he was over 5-foot-4, could speak with poise and possessed a basic knowledge of Western liquor. He caught a glimpse of the Kardashian sisters and the professional wrestler John Cena, but he was delighted above all, he said, to see the cavernous event hall decorated in the theme of Varanasi, his hometown, and for the foreign guests to be exposed to classical Hindustani music and traditional Hindu marriage rituals.

Ambani “was not just doing all this spending for his son. He was presenting India in a different way to the world, showcasing India’s culture,” Kanojiya said excitedly. “We grew up hearing India is a very poor country and we can’t afford these things. But today, you see how this is done and who will come.”

Back across the river, Ahmed the mechanic and his neighbor Shareef Khan, a locksmith, stood surveying a stretch of LBS Road where shallow pools were forming again as rain began to fall. At that moment, a bus hit a pothole with such force that every head on the street corner swiveled, thinking there was an accident.

“I know why the roads here are bad,” Khan said. “Politics.”
