The luxury 44m (144ft) superyacht LEIGHT STAR has wowed audiences in her debut appearance on the thrilling docudrama Inventing Anna, which has already proven a huge hit after ranking number one on Netflix’s top 10 ‘most-watched TV and film series'.
Inspired by a true story, the show follows Anna Sorokin, a Russian fraudster who fools New York's elite by posing as socialite Anna Delvey, a German heiress immaculately dressed in Balenciaga and Chanel, dripping in designer jewelry, handbags and expensive sunglasses.
A number of scenes take place on board the luxury yacht LEIGHT STAR, which has been renamed ‘Caprilla’ for her debut in this gripping nine-episode drama.
These scenes are set around the beautiful Balearic island of Ibiza, providing the perfect cruising grounds for Anna and her friends to wine and dine, and – most importantly for the fake heiress – close business deals.
Superyacht LEIGHT STAR is an elegant 44m motor yacht, originally built in 1984, with a further refit in 2009. Boasting a beautiful exterior and interior design by Douglas Sharp, the vessel offers flexible accommodation for up to 12 guests in 6 cabins, along with a wealth of convivial spaces primed for relaxation and entertainment.
The superyacht is often chartered by big brands, including the well-known fashion house GUESS, as well as featuring in numerous movies, music videos and advertising campaigns. Her base port is in the prestigious Marina Del Rey, near to Los Angeles, making her a prime choice for screen debuts.
She currently has an asking price of $122,000 for a 7-day charter, although she is also available for day and weekend charters.
The motor yacht belongs to Howard Leight, founder of Malibu Rocky Oaks winery and Howard Leight Industries. The Leight family originally bought the yacht as they were looking for an ideal place to park their helicopters.
As a pilot himself, Howard wanted to avoid landing in airports when doing business so he utilized the yacht as his helipad. Leight’s father purchased the yacht in 1996, with the vessel undergoing a complete refit in 2009, transforming it into a modern chic vessel, perfect for luxury yacht charter vacations.
