When the 71 metre motor yacht The One was launched in 1973, she was one of the most admired yachts of that decade, strongly influencing subsequent yacht designs. Her development was also the first design project of these large dimensions for Jon Bannenberg – often dubbed the godfather of modern yacht design – who developed many of the well-known yachts in operation today. One of the yacht’s outstanding characteristics was the combination of speed, style and luxury in a way that had never existed before. She reached 28 knots, – amazing for a displacement of 650 tons. And to this day, she has not lost any of her striking visual appeal in the slightest.
