The 66.7-metre Triple Seven was built by the German shipyard Nobiskrug and completed in 2006 to a design by Newcruise. The 55-metre Sovereign is a fully American yacht built by Newcastle Marine in Palm Coast, Florida to a design by Murray & Associates. After changing hands one year after delivery, in 2012 Sovereign was renamed from Harbour Island and received a new coat of grey hull paint and several other modifications on board.
