Diddy has a custom-made app that gives him and his family complete control of his new luxury yacht “Solemates.”
CNN says “Solemates” is the first yacht to have this technology. There are 14 iPads to control all on-board entertainment – including “enough flat-screen LCD panels to tile a roof – and climate settings, as well as lights and blinds. The iPad can even summon the crew to bring passengers refreshments.
There’s even an $80,000 integrated light and sound system that converts a gym into a disco dance floor – all controlled from the iPad.
“You won’t find this app for download in the Apple store any time soon,” Rupert Connor, central agent from chartering firm the Luxury Yacht Group, tells CNN. “The captain hands each guest their own iPad when they board, which they get to keep for the entirety of their trip.”
If this isn’t enough to keep passengers entertained, there also is an “inflatable floating trampoline, jet-powered surfboards, James Bond-style underwater ‘sea bobs’ and an shower that provides aromatherapy in four flavors: eucalyptus, pine needle, citrus, and peppermint.
Not too shabby, especially since CNN says the yacht costs Diddy $850,000 per week.
