When: July 2004
When actress Mira Sorvino
married beau Chris Backus, Giorgio Armani not only created the wedding attire for Mira and her groom, Chris Backus, but the famed designer also provided a romantic getaway on his private yacht for the couple after their wedding on the Mediterranean Isle of Capri. They spent 2 weeks drifting away
on 'Mariu" on the cobalt blue water of the Mediterranean sea.
“It’s a minimalist yacht,” Giorgio Armani says of his magnificent teak and titanium yacht, Mariu. Named after his mother’s nickname, the yacht is an exceptionally beautiful custom-made craft equipped with its own elevator, flat-screen TVs in every cabin and high-tech kitchen staffed with three chefs.
The 50-meter long yacht provides luxurious accommodation for up to 12 charter guests in 6 cabins.
There's a fantastic main master suite situated on the main deck with a king bed and His/her bathroom ensuite each with shower and central Jacuzzi.
Almost all of the loose furnishings aboard Mariú are, surprise-surprise, from the Armani Casa furniture line, including black leather box chairs and squarish-beige couches in the saloon, rounded creamy leather chairs with leather-covered end tables on the veranda, and black-lacquered tables throughout.
