The Most Expensive Luxury Coach in the World
It’s a mighty big claim but Featherlite Luxury Coaches has announced its newest motorcoach, the Vantare Platinum Plus, with the claim that it’s the most expensive luxury coach ever built. The Platinum Plus has a triple slide configuration and its spacious interior is defined by the finest grade of finish materials in the world. This most expensive luxury coach designed by renowned interior designer and luxury coach owner Karen B. Horton, the fine detail of every item that has gone into the US$2.5 million Platinum Plus really has to be seen to be believed.
This is the most expensive luxury coach on the market today and is certainly without equal. With the Platinum Plus, Wooley and the Featherlite engineering and design team set out to manufacture the most elite vehicle in the already rarified world of luxury coach conversions. To assist with this, he brought on Karen B. Horton, ASID, to craft the interior of the Prevost shell. Horton, a luxury coach owner herself and the designer of the Beaufort Inn in Beaufort, S.C., brought an “entirely new concept of design elegance and functionality” to the project, according to Wooley.
The salon features a custom Italian sofa with double electric recliners. The most expensive luxury coach salon has a special liquor cabinet covered with sapele veneer and stocked with signed crystal glasses by Michael Weems and decanter from Neiman Marcus. The salon, galley and hall ceiling are covered in custom copper sculpture by Chip Manz. Ceiling lighting shines through Swarovski crystal.
The farm house style sink is one-of-a-kind and hand painted by Marzi Studios in Oregon. It is surrounded by custom copper countertops. The cabinets are Sapele veneer with Lite Core doors accented with a special inlay. The Haviland Limoges place settings are hand-painted by Michael Weems. Flatware is handmade from South Africa. Wine glasses are blown, signed crystal. Pots and pans, serving pieces, linens, and placemats–everything is included.
The stateroom features a king bed with a plasma TV that lifts out of the footboard. This most expensive luxury coach also has a private lavatory with one of a kind glass sink and countertop of fused glass by Seattle artist Mark Ditzler, sports fully lined cabinets with pull-out shelves, cedar-lined closets, Malbar washer and dryer, toe kick lights in the hall for night lighting, a stock of 90 oz. spa towels and spa robes for the gentleman and lady in this most expensive luxury coach.
