Fountainhead is third in the Feadship XL series, which are the largest yachts yet built by this respected Dutch yacht builder. Seen here visiting Monaco.
Fountainhead is widely reported as commissioned by Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, as a smaller replacement for Rising Sun. The repeated rectangular window design - rather like an office block - certainly looks similar.
Given the design clues in the type face of the name and general modernist design, the name Fountainhead seems likely to be a reference to the iconic architecural design novel by Ayn Rand, written in 1943.
Near sistership Musahi, which was also delivered this summer, was reportedly commissioned by friend Marc Cuban.
