Yachting Goes Ballistic! The Millennium 140'! Review by Carl Camper and Chuck Gneagy Millennium Superyachts, with a stable boasting rakish titles of adventure thrillers -- Thunderball, Octopussy, Moonraker – now has debuted what may be its most Machiavelian superyacht offspring yet, in “The World Is Not Enough.” Boarding this new megayacht at its 15 acre yacht haven in Riviera Beach, Fl, you are struck by the impression that the design itself is so spectacular, so rich in detail, it easily overshadows ts predecessors. But, true to its name, even that is not enough. This superyacht is utterly possessed with the concept of Speed – registering a stunning 75 mph top-end, with a breathtaking 40-knot cruise speed. Not bad for a 140’ luxury yacht! The entire building plan followed a course set in the 1980s by founders John Staluppi and John Rosatti, directing the quest for the supreme superyacht... in the fast lane. According to Millennium’s marketing director John Schmieman, who followed the vessel through birthing pangs in Holland ( Hardinxveld, Giessendam) to its debut upon the international yachting scene, every vital element of the design was conspicuously marked and measured for speed, while draped in ultimate luxury. “Every part, every piece of equipment and gear, every bulkhead, every wall covering, deck, furniture and hatch were especially formulated to provide maximum service with minimum weight, down to the last detail,” Schmieman says. Photo Caption: The new Millennium runs almost entirely "aired-out". This is as close as anyone has ever come to an offshore raceboat... in a luxury yacht.
