Built-in 1929 and recently restored to her original elegance, Vida Mia has been host to intimate affairs, bustling parties, and unforgettable moments on the water for decades.
The worldly 61-foot wooden yacht has traveled the California coastline and crossed the ocean to Hawai‘i, where she currently resides at the private Waikiki Yacht Club. If her teak could speak, it would tell stories of celebrities like Louis Vuitton, Elizabeth Taylor, and the Travoltas sipping champagne in the lee of Diamond Head.
Built for luxury, the Vida Mia served her country during World War II, when she was commandeered by the Coast Guard to patrol the San Francisco Bay. She arrived in Hawai‘i after serving as an unofficial escort of the famed Transpac sailing race in 1963, although it’s said perhaps the Transpac racing fleet was really escorting her.
“Vida Mia” translates to “my life,” a term of endearment in Spanish, and is the perfect venue for a romantic evening for two or an intimate wedding, or the private charter of your choice.
