What’s better than wearing a Yacht-Master? Having a boat to take it on! Here at Everest Bands we want to help you with that and provide some inspiration for boats worthy of the stunning Yacht-Masters from Rolex. So let’s just dive right into it!
Starting off with one of the classic Yacht-Master 42 in white gold on oyster flex, this is a sporty yet elegant interpretation of the watch.

The white gold is heavier and more lustrous than stainless steel and exudes luxury, while the rubber strap gives it a sporty feel and shows that the wearer is not afraid of getting wet. The Pure One from Leopold is the perfect yacht for the wearer of that watch. Clocking in with a top speed of 34 knots, not only is the Pure One sleek and luxurious (able to house 12 guests in 5 cabins), it is also fast to boot.

The Pure One measures 46.2 meters and features a theater and jacuzzi, it also houses 8 members of crew so you don’t have to lift a finger, maybe just your wrist to tell the time. The one downside is it costs 8,700,000 Euros or $10.6M US dollars, but you get a beautiful yacht for all that money.
The next watch is one of my personal favorites, the Yacht-Master II with its regatta timer.

For this watch the choice is easy, sticking with the boat racing heritage of this watch, the clear choice is a sailboat and the Thalima fits the bill perfectly.

The boat sports a navy blue and white color scheme which perfectly matches the blue and stainless steel of the YM II. This boat handles brilliantly and is bred for racing, the same as the YM II. Much like the watch this boat is comfortable in the heat of a regatta or just cruising and exploring the world’s oceans. It comes in at 33.7m long and can house 8 guests in 4 cabins with a crew of 5. Some amenities feature a double cockpit for ease of steering, a study area, and a walk-in closet so that you don’t leave the comforts of home completely behind. The boat costs 5,900,000 euros or $7.2M making it the “cheapest” yacht on this list.
The final watch and boat pairing is one of pure luxury. Coming in at a cool $275,000,000 the 126.2m long Octopus is a behemoth of a boat. Much like the watch, there’s more to it than what meets the eye.

On the outside the Octopus features a navy blue hull with red and white accents perfectly matching the dial of the blue dial platinum and steel Yacht-Master 40. However, it’s what’s on the inside that matters. The Octopus features 2 helicopters, 6 tenders, and even a 10-person submariner. The Octopus can accommodate 26 guests in 13 rooms and includes a recording studio, beach club, and diving deck.
The Yacht-Master 40 likewise has the specs to back up the looks. It features Rolex’s 3235 movement accurate up to -2/+2 seconds a day with a power reserve of 70 hours. Additionally, the platinum in the watch gives it a weight worthy of a mega-yacht. The Yacht-Master 40 exudes luxury and class, much like the boat. You would be hard pressed to find a better pairing for this watch.
