History of Blu 470
Blu 470 is an exceptional yacht which has benefited from excellent owners her entire life.
Built as MI GAEA by Feadship in Aalsmeer, (Netherlands) and supervised by the De Voogt Naval
Architects team, she was the queen of the fleet when launched in 1990. Her original styling and
interior design was done by Donald Starkey. Although found in excellent condition, she returned to
Feadship in 2008 as INEVITABLE to complete an extensive refit/rebuild including a 3 meter hull
extension, stretch of exterior decks and a new interior that was designed by Patrick Knowles
and produced my Metrica. As a result she won the best refit award at the World Superyacht
Now Blu 470, under her latest ownership, continues to benefit from this wonderful
pedigree. She went through another extensive refit in 2014 at Rybovich in
Florida. During this time she did an interior refit, again under the supervision and design team of
Patrick Knowles. The owner and Patrick collaborated to bring the interior design and
execution to a modern feel while keeping the wonderful pedigree she has to offer. The interior
speaks for itself with beautiful wood, fabrics and detail to design. She has an open and airy feel
throughout. Her custom built wine fridge proves to be the highlight and a perfect accent to divide
the main salon while still offering a much needed open floor plan.
Other major work was undertaken as well, including all new exterior paint, new sundeck
arrangement and crane, updated galley, upgraded mechanics, AV and electronics, all new tenders
and toys and much more. This refit also resulted in accolades being named a
finalist in the 2016 World Superyacht Awards. A true must see, one will not be disappointed
with the condition, comfort and feel Blu 470 has to offer throughout.
