Excellence

What do you get if you have two friends with a passion for boats, high-profile automotive careers and cash to burn? The answer is the 153-foot superyacht Excellence , a vessel that oozes speed, has brand pedigree and captures the hearts of all who own it.

Built in 2001 by Formula One racing car driver and automobile entrepreneur Roger Penske, who named her  Detroit Eagle , the yacht combined Feadship ’s Dutch craftsmanship with Penske’s own brand of engine. (Disclosure: Roger Penske is the father of Jay Penske, who owns this publication, as well as its sister publications in the Penske Media portfolio.)

This Wild New 62-Foot Yacht Has Not One but Two Party Decks

“At the time [Roger] Penske owned a company called Detroit Diesel that made diesel engines for boats, and he was also involved with a company that built turbine engines,” current owner and Penske’s longtime friend, Herb Chambers, told Robb Report . “So, he went to Feadship and built a lightweight aluminum yacht with a shallow draft to demonstrate the capability of his engines.”

Excellence

The Feadship was originally built and owned for years by Roger Penske, who wanted a very fast, very luxurious superyacht. Penske installed his own Detroit Diesel-branded engines and then added a 5,600-hp turbine to give the yacht a 10-knot pop at the top end.  Courtesy of Burgess Yachts

The immaculate, polished-chrome engine room, with the diesels painted in fire-engine red, has always been a symbolic indicator of the type of impressive speeds the yacht can reach. The engines are 16-cylinder 4000 series, which generate 3,650 horsepower each. Penske then added something the superyacht world had never seen before–a Lycoming TF-50 gas turbine for an additional 5,600 horsepower.

“The boat can cruise at about 23 knots on diesel engines,” Chambers says, “but if you really want it to go fast, you push a button and the turbine kicks in taking the boat from 23 knots up to around 33 knots. It really is a remarkable vessel.”

Serial boat builder Chambers grew up in the Boston area, spending long summers on the water at his grandmother’s cottage. “I always had the desire to have a boat,” he says, a goal he realized at 24 with a 30-foot Trojan flybridge motoryacht. The Trojan would be the first of five yachts called A-Copy , named after his successful copy-machine business.

“After I sold the copy company and had this windfall of money, I ordered a 127-foot Feadship. The name A-Copy wasn’t of any significance to me anymore so I tried to think of a name that I would like,” Chambers says. “I’m not an avid reader, but I read Tom Peters’s book In Search of Excellence and loved it. It’s about running a good business. I thought Excellence , that is a great name for a boat.”

Excellence

Launched last summer, Chambers’s newest 262-foot Abeking & Rasmussen “Excellence” has a futuristic hull shape, with an eagle-beak bow and large glass panels on the exterior.  Courtesy Abeking & Rasmussen

To date, Chambers has owned more than 40 yachts of many sizes. Some were even sold before he took delivery. The name “Excellence” serves as a constant reminder to his 30-year-long captain for the need to maintain high standards on board, he says. It has also carried through to Chamber’s six most recent yachts. This includes his largest yacht to date, a striking 262-foot Abeking & Rasmussen launched in 2019, on which he enjoys cruising the European waters of Croatia, Greece, Italy and St Tropez. That Excellence won Robb Report ’s 2020 Best of the Best award for interiors.

With its “eagle” reverse bow and triple-height glass atrium, the Winch-designed yacht turns heads wherever it goes. But that’s hardly surprising considering Philip Starck’s opinion-dividing Motor Yacht A was the design inspiration this latest Excellence .

“When I first saw Motor Yacht A , I said, ‘That looks like a submarine. Who would ever want to have a boat like that?’ And the second time I saw it, I said, ‘That boat is pretty nice. I kinda like that bow.’ And the third time I saw it, I thought, ‘I absolutely love that.’ So, that’s where the idea for Excellence ’s bow came from.”

Excellence

While he has recently listed the Feadship “Excellence,” Chambers plans to enjoy the yacht for while he still owns her. He has often owned two yachts—the newer one that is often under charter, and a smaller, faster one that is at his disposal for his “personal use.” 

While Chambers’s appreciation of Feadship has long endured after his first foray with the Dutch shipbuilder, it wasn’t until a 2018 visit to Fort Lauderdale Boat Show that Penske’s 153-foot yacht caught Chamber’s eye. Prized by Chambers for its flexible speed and six-foot Bahamas-friendly draft, it is one of the few yachts that he hasn’t put on the charter market.

“I view the Feadship as a very personal boat,” says Chambers. “It’s only a four-stateroom boat, but you can bring three other couples or family members with you. When I told Roger Penske that I had bought the boat, he said his family was mad at him when he sold it because they loved it so much.”

An extensive 2019 refit of the yacht includes a full paint job, an updated sound system and refurb of the original John Munford interior. Chambers bought the yacht for his own personal use. “Because my boats get chartered, I always love to have a boat that’s available just for me,” Chambers says. “I built a 94-foot Mangusta for that purpose and used it in America when my big yacht was on charter in the Mediterranean or Caribbean. The Feadship can do pretty much what the Mangusta did, but it’s a bigger, more comfortable boat, so I sold the Mangusta at the start of 2020.”

Excellence

The 2001 build has undergone a complete refurbishment of the interior. 

Being a serial owner, Chambers also recently listed the updated Feadship. He plans to enjoy the yacht while she is still available. Will he miss this Excellence ?

“I really don’t know,” Chambers says, pausing. “I would maybe look to build a similar boat, around 150 feet, something that would be fast. But the Abeking & Rasmussen Excellence is still new to me. The time for me to sell a boat is when I still like it.”

That creates a great opportunity for a buyer who wants a piece of superyacht history–a very fast superyacht history.

Excellence is co-listed for sale with Burgess  and Merle Wood & Associates for $16,900,000. Here are more views.

Herb Chambers Yacht: Everything You Want To Know

Ian Fortey

Herb Chambers is an American businessman and a billionaire known for his massive New England and East coast auto dealership empire, the Herb Chambers Companies. His net worth is believed to be somewhere close to $2 billion and, as a man who clearly likes fancy cars and other luxurious things, he spared no expense when it came to buying his own personal yacht back in 2019. The vessel was built by yacht makers Abeking Rasmussen and designed by Winch Design. It quickly became a famous, award winning new yacht thanks to its complicated naval architecture and sleek superyacht design.

What is Herb Chambers Yacht Called?

who owns excellence v yacht

Chambers chose to call his yacht Excellence which, all things being equal, is certainly an appropriate name for this luxury vessel. Captain Ray Shore, who has been Chambers’ yacht captain for 30 years, is the man behind the wheel. We’ll get into some of what we know about its impressive features and amenities soon that really show off why it deserves the title. 

How Much Did Herb Chambers’ Yacht Cost?

who owns excellence v yacht

Excellence is rumored to have set Herb Chambers back a whopping $120 million. No wonder Excellence is in the name. That’s not close to the most expensive yacht in the world, but it does put the yacht in the top 30 most expensive in the world. On top of the base cost that Chambers spent to take this vessel home there’s also the annual running cost. Most of us don’t consider this when we think about yacht expenses but the cost of running a superyacht can be absolutely staggering. It’s estimated that, when you account for fuel as well as operating costs like paying the crew, food and other necessities on board, Chambers is spending between $5 million and $12 million per year. 

What Does it Cost To Charter Excellent?

who owns excellence v yacht

Chambers has made Excellence available for charter and, in fact, he has had several previous yachts also called Excellence. Some of these yachts, of which there have been six, can be chartered as well though most of them have since been renamed. As you might expect, the vessel does not come cheap by any means. If you’re interested, a week will cost $1,150,000, which is one of the most expensive charters you’re likely to find anywhere.

Chambers has gone on record saying having the boat available for charter is important to him because it just costs too much to keep it running. He likes owning it but he doesn’t like paying for it and, really, you can’t fault him for his reasoning. He says, for him, that’s where he finds value in it. It’s worth something to own if he can have it chartered out and make the cost of running it back, which is good business. 

How Big is Herb Chambers Yacht Excellence?

who owns excellence v yacht

Excellence definitely falls under the realm of superyachts. It clocks in at a very impressive 80 meters which works out to about 263 feet in length. That means it’s quite a bit larger than your average yacht, though still a good deal smaller than the mega yachts owned by the likes of Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates.

The largest yachts in the world are, in some cases, twice as big as Chambers’ yacht so it’s by no means the biggest out there. Still, for an individual yacht, this 263-foot monster with a 47.4 foot draft and a gross tonnage of 2,115 tons is by no means small.

The yacht is designed to accommodate up to 14 passengers (though some sources claim 12, despite their being seven cabins) as well as 20 crew (but, again, some sources say 22, though there seem to be just 10 crew cabins).

What is the Cruising Speed of Herb Chambers Yacht?

who owns excellence v yacht

Despite its size, the Excellence still has a pretty standard cruising speed of around 14 knots. It’s powered by a pair of twin 2,029hp MTU (12V 4000 M65R) diesel engines that can get it up to a top speed of 17 knots. Based on that, Excellence has a range of up to 6,300 nautical miles thanks to her 150,000 liter fuel tanks at cruising speed.

What’s the Interior of Herb Chambers Excellence Yacht Like?

One of the most unique and easily recognizable features of Excellence is the bow. Unlike your average vessel, Excellence is sporting a reverse bow and elongated hull which gives the boat the visual appearance of being upside down in the water, at least at the front. Beyond that, there’s also an extremely hard to miss triple-height glass atrium in the center of the yacht. As you can imagine, this enormous glass centerpiece allows the interior to be flooded with natural light while also allowing for amazing views of the outside from all over the vessel.

Throughout the vessel you’ll find much more glass as well as ample marble and Italian leather. There’s also wood accents of sycamore, burr, limed oak, blue ombre and birdseye maple to give it natural and opulent touches.

The top deck of the yacht is actually the private owner’s suite so it features not just the master bedroom suite but a number of other private amenities. To the aft is a sun deck lounging area only accessible to the owner and invited guests. Head forward and you’ll find your private terrace There’s also access to a private deck jacuzzi as well to ensure that, if you want, you can spend your time in luxury fully away from all the other guests.

The entire, luxury master suite also features floor to ceiling mirrored glass. That allows those inside to have a beautiful 180-degree view of the ocean and surroundings while also being obscured from anyone else looking in. In terms of size, at one point this mirror glass wall rises to a height of 6 whole meters or about 18 feet.

Above the owner’s deck you’ll find a large sun lounging area with another jacuzzi. However, if you want to make the most of your time relaxing in the water then head to the main deck where there’s an entire swimming pool which also features a swim up bar. 

For most guests, the main deck is where they are spending most of their time. There are 6 double guest cabins located there plus a lot more. A lounge and dining area can manage the full complement of guests plus extras who may be hanging out for a party. In addition there is a fully appointed gym as well as a spa and sauna for use.

who owns excellence v yacht

Elsewhere on the main deck, guests can enjoy a movie in the cinema space. If it’s a nice day and guests want to head out for fun on the water then heading down below deck is where you want to be.

A large beach club space has a terrace so you can really get out to lounge or enjoy the water. The garage is packed with more toys than you’d think possible. Check out this list of what’s available on board.

  • One 9.8m/32’2″ Hogdon limousine tender, for when you want to head ashore in style
  • Two standard tenders
  • An Angeboat RS 200 two-person sailing dinghy
  • A trampoline
  • An inflatable platform
  • An aquapark
  • A pair of sea kayaks
  • A pair of sea bobs
  • A pair of Yamaha VX cruiser waverunners
  • A training center that can actually teach you how to ride waverunners
  • Four stand up paddle boards
  • Inflatable, towable toys
  • Gear for both snorkeling and scuba diving

The Bottom Line

who owns excellence v yacht

Billionaire Herb Chambers owns the yacht known as Excellence, which is actually one of six yachts he’s owned that all bore the same name. The vessel is believed to have cost him $120 million in 2019 and has an annual running cost of between $5 million and $12 million. To offset those costs, Chambers charters the yacht which costs over $1 million per week for those interested.

One of the most distinguishing and recognizable features of the superyacht Excellence is the reverse bow. The superyacht owner wanted this so it would be clearly different from his previous boat. It also has some of the largest windows you’ll ever see on a yacht, reaching nearly 20 feet in some places.  

Excellence has room for about 20 crew and 14 guests, though these numbers seem to vary. It features a swimming pool, two Jacuzzis and a number of toys.

Superyacht Arience promises to deliver an outstanding charter vacation

Built by Abeking & Rasmussen in 2012, the 196.85ft/60m Custom motor yacht 'Arience' features an interior and exterior designed by the highly acclaimed Reymond Langton Design.

Appropriately named, the award-winning Excellence V is of distinctly German pedigree and was clearly designed with the charterer in mind. Indeed, from her dedicated cinema to her waterfront gym, all of the space has been optimised in order to create the ultimate luxury charter experience.

Exterior Design

Graced with wide side decks and multiple outdoor lounges, the exterior of superyacht Arience is exceptionally well suited for both relaxation and evening strolls against the sunset. Dividing the exterior into 10 dedicated spaces, Reymond Langton Design have provided Arience with three fully stocked bars and an impressive seven lounges- an arrangement sure to satisfy guests who look forward to taking in their surroundings whilst underway or at-anchor. Clearly anticipating charterers who enjoy spending their time outdoors, the beach club has been built amidship starboard for more room to relax and socialise in. Indeed, with the tenders being boarded at the yacht’s stern in the usual fashion, guests are able to work out at the waterside gym or sunbathe on the retractable platform in an environment free of toys and other marine gear. Elsewhere outside, a glass fronted spa pool offers an incredible means of cooling off in the sun whilst still having access to unparalleled views. To warm up again, there’s no better way to do so by taking a dip in the Jacuzzi whilst sampling some cocktails from the adjacent bar. Naturally, dining outside has been given considerable attention by Reymond Langton Design, who have included an expandable table on the bridge deck to allow exquisite dishes and refreshing sea breezes to go hand in hand.

Interior Design

With each of the five decks accessible via a sizable glass elevator encased by a spiral staircase, the interior of Arience is as replete with impressive features as her exterior. Featuring a foyer, a main salon, and a spacious upper deck lounge, guests are able to socialise and unwind whilst being surrounded by a wealth of diverse artwork and subtle design attributes. The dining area found on the main deck allows for a more formal experience than the al fresco arrangement located on the bridge deck, and the attendant decor is appropriately striking. Complete with comfortable theatre-style seating, the on-board cinema benefits from a few extra cushions to ensure that everyone is suitably relaxed whilst enjoying the latest blockbusters. Privileging layers above all else, Reymond Langton Design have combined a variety of textures over multiple surfaces to produce an interior which is at once engaging and wholly inviting. The woodwork which adorns the social and private spaces is equally outstanding- the combination of macassar ebony, golden burl, fiddleback sycamore, stained anigre, and maple showcases an exceptional array of tones and grains. Whilst the general colour scheme is entirely contemporary, balancing white and black throughout, occasional splashes of royal blue and vermillion reveal a playfulness underlying the interior design. To allow for a more discreet service from her attentive crew, hidden panels have been installed throughout the yacht in order for the team of 15 to navigate the various interior spaces without disrupting the overall aesthetic flow.

Guest Accommodation

Committed to using only the finest materials and furnishings, the sleeping options on board Arience scale the very heights of luxury, affording every guest an exceptional environment to catch up on their rest. Located on the upper deck, the Owner’s deck is a veritable penthouse. Private yet informal, the suite can be accessed via elevator from the beach club, meaning that arrival via tender could not be more stylish. With hallways adorned with eye-catching works of art leading out to a private terrace, the primary charterer is able to take advantage of their own sunpads and spa bath. What’s more Reymond Langton Design have placed low bulkheads to allow for uninterrupted views across the ocean. Located on the port and starboard sides are his and hers bathrooms respectively, each with a private Jacuzzi and a walk through wardrobe uniting the two. The bed itself is situated underneath an expansive sunlight which can be blacked out at a moment’s notice, and a private office is situated adjacent for attending to any necessary business whilst out on the water. A further feature of the Owner’s deck is the double cabin located opposite which has been designed to accommodate either a nanny or staff. With convenient access to both the main deck below and the bridge deck above, the guest making use of this deck will find themselves effortlessly navigating between social and private areas of Arience. The VIP and further four double suites are all located at the forward section of the main deck and feature silk carpeting and large windows which can be turned opaque at the flick of a switch.

Onboard Comfort & Entertainment

Replete with space to unwind in, and a number of towable toys and tenders on hand, enjoying yourself on Arience is entirely effortless. Uniquely styled and conveniently positioned, the beach club on-board Arience includes a shaded bar, a lounging space, and open teak decking extending right up to the water’s edge. Not only does this terrace-like arrangement allow for  water side aerobics , but it also makes arriving on-board Arience a memorable experience in itself. As part of the Owner’s deck, a dedicated salon with a generously sized games table is the perfect spot for some after-hours entertaining, whilst the wet bar attached to the lounge on the main deck is fantastic for some midday refreshment. Another standout attraction is unquestionably the sports bar on the bridge deck, an ideal spot for getting a party underway.

Special Features

Due to her size, Arience is able to access the world’s most desirable ports whilst still boasting an interior volume which has been put to great use. As well as boasting a number of dedicated social spaces, the owner’s deck and exterior are all but unrivalled in the charter fleet.  

As well as providing an outstanding space for sunbathing and diving into the water, the beach club terrace provides a generous amount of gym and aerobics equipment to make workout routines as enjoyable as possible.  

Performance & Range

Arience is built with Steel hull and Aluminium superstructure. As a displacement yacht, she is equipped with an ultra-modern stabilization system which reduces roll motion effect and results in a smoother more enjoyable cruising experience.

Superyacht Influencer Interview: Herb Chambers Opens Up About Owning 263-Foot-Long EXCELLENCE

I’ve never met anyone in the superyacht world quite like herb chambers..

Superyacht owners are often, um, how should we say it…pretty aloof. And I can’t say I blame them. But every now and then, I meet a superyacht owner who loves his new yacht, loves the process of designing and building something so unique, and appreciates the incredibly talented designers and engineers and builders who can make his dreams a reality so much that he’s willing to share some of the experience with me–on the record.

who owns excellence v yacht

But I’ve never met anyone in the superyacht world quite like the owner of 263-foot-long EXCELLENCE, which was designed by Winch Design, built by Abeking & Rasmussen, and won the “Best Exterior Design” and “Finest New Superyacht” awards at the Monaco Yacht Show .

He’s a straight-talking American whose smiling face and common sense one-liners are on nearly every billboard near where I live in downtown Boston. His name is Herb Chambers. And he’s on all those billboards because he owns (and is the face of) more than 1,000 car dealerships in New England that bear his name.

who owns excellence v yacht

“Well, I’ve had six yachts,” he says when I ask about how he came to own one of the hottest superyachts in the world. “I built two in Holland and then I started building them in Germany at Abeking & Rassmussen.”

“Why so many?” I ask. 

“It’s fun to build a boat,” he says with a twinkle in his eye. “As a matter of fact, from my standpoint, it’s probably more fun to build them than it is to use them.”

who owns excellence v yacht

“You’re creating something. You’re watching something grow,” he continues. “I think people who develop real estate know what I’m talking about; watching a project grow.”

“I’m in the automobile business, so it’s not quite the same. But building a boat gives you an excuse to go to Europe every three or four months so you see the progress and what’s going on at the yard. And that, to me, is very exciting.”

“Then, you have the opportunity to make a lot of choices.”

who owns excellence v yacht

When it comes to EXCELLENCE ’s design, “choices” may be a bit of an understatement. Chambers’ design brief called for his new yacht to be “extraordinary” and to create a seamless feeling of openness and connection to the outside world. He says, “I also wanted the boat to be what I’ll call a ‘happy boat’. There are many boats out there that are overdone. They become an exercise in excess. I didn’t want that.”

He just needed to meet the designer that could create what he wanted.

who owns excellence v yacht

“So how did you decide to build such a radical new yacht?” I ask.

“We were at a boat show when I still owned my previous EXCELLENCE (a 198-footer also named EXCELLENCE and built by Abeking & Rasmussen), but I was thinking about building something new. Then I walked into the Abeking & Rasmussen stand. And they had a rendering on the wall. And he–” Chambers says, pointing at the man who just sat next to him at the bar on the lower deck of his award-winning new yacht where we are sitting, “had done the rendering.”

The “he” Chambers refers to is Andrew Winch, the founder of Winch Design and the head of the design team that designed every element of the yacht, from the striking exterior and complicated naval architecture to every detail in the interior.

“I was thinking about a boat with lots of glass. And then I stopped and said, ‘I like that boat,’” he explains, pointing at a rendering that was just a concept Abeking & Rasmussen and Winch Design were collaborating on. Soon Chambers was making changes and making his own additions to the design. And not too long after that, the boat was being built.

who owns excellence v yacht

Winch describes the process with Chambers like this: “Herb trusted us to design and build something that was so new, it was way beyond the comfort zone of most people. He had the courage to do it.”

In fact, the team at Winch Design came up with a superstructure that’s so unique, it’s no wonder EXCELLENCE has been so well-received. The instantly identifiable reverse bow and the yacht’s profile built around huge areas of mirrored and curved floor-to-ceiling glass executed brilliantly by Abeking & Rassmussen may point to where the future of superyacht design and construction is headed.

A well-appointed double stateroom, designed for charterers’ children or other supernumerary guests, sits just aft of the master suite, opposite the study.
