2016 - Lionheart[edit]

The current 90 metres (300 ft) yacht is the third commissioned by Green to be built by Benetti Yachts (project FB 262).[1] With contracts signed in 2012, she is built of steel with an aluminium superstructure. Completed in early 2016, after sea trials off Livorno, she undertook a commissioning run to Malta in May, able to cruise at a speed of 15 knots (28 km/h; 17 mph).

2006 - Lioness V[edit]

Built in 2006 by Benetti, the 63.5 metres (208 ft) former "Lionheart" is now named Lioness V. Custom designed and engineered by Stefano Natucci (her length below 65.0 metres (213.3 ft) allows her to be permanently docked in Monaco harbour, where the Green's reside), her interior was designed by Argent Design. With a steel hull and a aluminium superstructure, she had a contract price of £32M ($50Mmillion). She can sleep up to 12 guests in 6 rooms, including: a master suite; 3 double cabins; 2 twin cabins; and accommodation for up to 19 crew. The yacht has a fast Otam Cigarette 45 feet (14 m) tender named Lion Cub. Still owned by Tina Green's company Taveta Investments, Lioness V is available for charter.[2]

1999 - Lumiere[edit]

Built in 1999 by Benetti, the 49.9 metres (164 ft) former "Lionheart" is now named Lumiere. Custom designed and engineered by Stefano Natucci, her interior was designed by Argent Design. She can sleep up to 12 guests in 6 rooms, including a master suite, 1 VIP stateroom, 2 double cabins, 2 twin cabins and 2 convertible cabins; and is capable of carrying up to 11 crew. Named Cuor di Leone after being replaced by Green in 2006, he sold her and she is now named Lumiere and available for charter.[3]

Lionchase[edit]

The Lionchase is a Mangusta 108, a fast sports yacht which can reach a top speed of 37 knots (69 km/h; 43 mph), with a list price of $12M. Docked in Monaco, she acts as a fast-tender to Lionheart.
