Two Italian Superyachts Star in the Kardashian-Barker Wedding: Regina d’Italia and Fatima

In one of the weddings of the year, Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian got married in style at the Italian Riviera fishing village of Portofino last weekend, famed for its colourful buildings and celebrity visitors. Although the ceremony and reception were on dry land, at the Dolce and Gabbana-owned Olivetta Villa and a 16th-century castle, two luxurious Superyachts hosted some of the festivities the Monday after their big day.

Mr and Mrs Barker chose to celebrate aboard the 65-meter Codecasa-built Regina d’Italia and the 33-meter Fatima by Riva Yachts. They enjoyed their time aboard by jumping off the side of the Fatima in an exhilarating newlywed plunge in the Mediterranean.

Villa Olivetti is owned by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, it is a collection of clifftop villas and buildings in a picturesque part of Portofino overlooking the sea in which the 50-strong wedding party stayed in the lead up to the event.

Regina d’Italia

This 65-meter yacht was delivered in 2019 and should not be confused with the Regina d’Italia II, which was previously owned by Dolce and Gabbana. Details about the interiors of the Regina d’Italia are difficult to come across, but it has a sporty contemporary exterior profile by stylist Domenico Gozzani.

There is a massive lounge and formal dining area on the main deck plus huge alfresco living areas and an impressive owner’s apartment on the upper deck. The sundeck features a 5 by 2 meter swimming pool for cooling off and plenty of deck space for sunning, the entire upper foredeck is dedicated to the owner and acts as a private terrace.

She can fit 14 guests in 7 state rooms with space for 16 crew members and is powered by two Caterpillar diesel engines that give her a cruising speed of 12 knots. The maximum speed is 17 knots but if kept to cruising speed Regina d’Italia can achieve a maximum range of 5000 nautical miles. She is quite fast for a Superyacht of this size.

Fatima

The Officina Italiana Design Superyacht Fatima was delivered in 2018 by Italian Firm, Riva Yachts and features a Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) superstructure and hull. GRP is heavier than aluminium and there is less risk of warping, but aluminium has a greater shear strength, allowing it to move more smoothly through the water.

Of course, when cruising around the Italian Riviera what matters more is the social calendar of those on board and the kind of activities and experiences that can have in this glamorous part of the world are the envy of many. Fatima is the smaller of the two Kardashian-Barker wedding yachts and can only sleep 5 couples, but the cabins are luxurious and all guests are seen to by 5 crew.

The Superyacht’s maximum speed is 26.0 knots and her cruising speed is 23.0 knots, Power comes from two MTU diesel engines. She is a custom design based on the Dolcevita 100 series of super yachts and one of 25 in existence.
