Owned by powerhouse couple Loren and JR Ridinger, Co-Founders of Market America I SHOP.COM, the jaw-dropping 2018, 63 m / 206′9″ luxury motor yacht was built by Rossinavi.

Due to the ongoing restrictions of the pandemic and an overall decline in air travel, the yachting industry has taken off this year.

“There is an interesting phenomenon going on with the yacht chartering industry during COVID times and why it works is appealing,” notes JR Ridinger. “Superyachts offer an amazing solution for affluent or successful individuals and families or business owners to quarantine or social distance in luxury. UTOPIA IV is equipped with a digital office, so you can stay connected from anywhere in your own bubble.”

To provide the safest environment, the Utopia IV team requires that all crew and guests have a current COVID-19 negative test on file with the yacht prior to boarding in order to maintain a COVID-free “safety bubble.”

Over the summer, UTOPIA IV was an in-demand charter by the top billionaire Wall Street titans who wanted to escape the mundane of their homes and safely quarantine at sea—with all the necessities and luxuries available to them throughout their time aboard.

Recently, UTOPIA was reflagged as a United States vessel, honored by the United States Superyacht Association. Currently, the superyacht is available for charter, including sailing in the U.S., The Bahamas and throughout the Caribbean.
