Below Deck star 'Valor' is actually named 'BG'

This 33-year-old superyacht ‘BG’ comes from the world-renowned Dutch shipyard Feadship and features their classic exterior lines. She was built back in 1990 at their De Vries shipyard in the Netherlands and has since undergone refits in 2015 and 2022. She has a length of 46.9m, a beam of 8.8m and she sits in the water with a 2.9m draft.  

This world cruiser has a steel mono hull, topped by an aluminium superstructure. Her design and naval architecture is the work of award-winning Frits De Voogt. With a gross tonnage of 515, she is propelled through the water by her twin CAT 3508 DITA diesel engines (905 hp each) at a top speed of 15 knots. When cruising at 12 knots she has a max range of 5000 nautical miles with a fuel capacity of 69,800 litres.

Her interior design was the work of New York based McMillen Design, and her later reconfiguration is courtesy of Toronto based Dee Dee Taylor Eustace, founder of Taylor Hannah Architect Inc. She features high-end finishes in dark woods contrasted against refreshing bright whites, creating a beach house vibe that’s straight out of the Hamptons.  

BG can accommodate 12 guests in 6 spacious luxury cabins. The Master cabin and VIP cabin are full beam and are situated on the main deck. The 4 guest cabins are situated on the lower deck. All cabins have en suite bathrooms. She also has accommodation for 11 experienced crew members.

The huge upper aft teak deck serves as a spectacular sun lounging, al fresco dining and entertainment area, aswel as the boat deck, with its twin deck cranes. Aft of the mast, you can retreat to her stylish jacuzzi, or lounge on her luxurious sun pad forward of the mast, to enjoy panoramic views from the sundeck. Sensational views can still be found indoors when enjoying the spacious main deck saloon or the aft sky lounge with its 180° windows on the bridge deck.  

In amongst the meticulous craftsmanship, notable state-of-the-art amenities include an outdoor deck jacuzzi, a gym, outdoor projector screen, a hydraulic swim platform, plus an exquisite wine cellar in the salon containing 120 bottles.

BG was previously named Charade. She is Feadship’s 110th-largest yacht, and she is the 1181st-largest yacht in the world. In 2016 she was a finalist in The World Superyacht Awards for ‘best refitted/rebuilt yacht’. Not only that, but she is a TV star after appearing in several seasons of Below Deck where she was named Valor for the show. 

BG stands for the owner's initials; Bobby Genovese, a Canadian self-made businessman. The entrepreneur is the founder of BG Capital Management Corporation, BG Signature, and BG Capital Group Ltd. Back in 2014, the motor yacht was purchased for 11,990,000 USD. Then in 2022, the motor yacht was for sale with an asking price of 16,900,000 USD. She has since arrived at the prestigious marina at Sentosa Cove, Singapore, where she moors outside the distinguished ONE°15 yacht club.
