Cruising in Style: Onboard Tommy Hilfiger’s charter yacht FLAG

By Paloma Shemirani   20 October 2023

With over 3 millions subscribers on YouTube, Enes Yilmazer is known for his video tours of high-end real estate and luxury lifestyle content. In March 2023, he was invited aboard the renowned fashion designer’s motor yacht to review it during a 3-day charter in the Bahamas, starting in Nassau.

Formerly named Faith, Tommy Hilfiger bought the 204-foot vessel by Feadship back in 2017 and renamed it FLAG after his company’s iconic logo. When Yilmazer asked why he had bought a Feadship, Hilfiger simply replied, ‘they’re the best in the world.’ Being so impressed by the boat’s beautiful interiors and numerous special features, Yilmazer’s review certainly endorses this.

Throughout the video, Yilmazer repeatedly praised FLAG’s classical interiors that were designed by Chahan Minassian: having been refitted in 2022, the interiors are characterized by their elegant light wooden paneling which perfectly complements the cream shade of the plush carpets, leather wraps, and natural stone flooring. As Yilmazer pointed out, the boat may be over twenty years old (being constructed in 2000), but her classic designs are truly timeless– ensuring a broad appeal for any and all who wish to charter her. 

With this colour palette, FLAG has a light, airy feel to it, which is enhanced by the large windows and portholes built in throughout the different decks. It also goes perfectly with the red, white, and blue colour motifs seen throughout most of the rooms– a tasteful homage to the Hilfiger brand. 

While remaining classical in style, modern elements like motorized doors and pop-up TV’s were seamlessly integrated into the interiors

In his first full day on the luxury charter yacht, Yilmazer was quick to take advantage of FLAG’s extensive selection of water toys which included SeaBobs, jetskis, and even an ‘aquabana’ which floated on the Caribbean waters by the inflatable water course. Charter guests can even slide into the water from the upper deck using the inflatable slide. Hilfiger had added to the megayacht’s selection of water toys, which have become his wife’s favourite aspect of the boat. 

After a day of fun in the sea, guests can head inside for an exquisite meal cooked by Chef Josh. When interviewed, Hilfiger praised the chef’s freshly-made bread and what he called ‘Nobu night’, which was a delicious selection of sushi and Asian cuisine prepared in the galley’s state-of-the-art facilities. On the sun deck there’s even a pizza oven, meaning that you and your party can experience dishes from across the world in just one charter. After dinner, you can relax in the sun deck’s jacuzzi  with one of FLAG's signature cocktails.

Yilmazer was also impressed by the number of special features on FLAG; this included an elevator which could go between all the floors– a must-have on such a large vessel. When touring round the master suite, the vlogger also remarked on the LED light embedded in the clothing rails to illuminate all your clothes– a feature he had not seen before on either another yacht or even in real estate. Finally, in each of the 7 suites there were independent thermostats which allow guests a truly comfortable and bespoke experience as they can alter the room’s temperature to their unique tastes.
