    Thought it would be a good idea to start a thread on "Fountainhead" instead of discussing her on the "Musashi" thread. Pretty much the same vessels though.

    After finally noticing the logo to this one, is it perhaps a hat tip to Ayn Rand?

    If this has been discussed previously, I must have missed it.

    I'm going to go ahead and speculate that both Musashi and Fountainhead were built by and for the same owner. the owner of Musashi has been widely reported but I have not seen any reports of who owns Fountainhead.

    They seem to be identical in almost every aspect including the basketball net on the aft deck. Masashi's owner definetely has the means to purchase two $200 million yachts (net worth upwards of $40 billion).

    To me it seems like a similar situation to Emilio Azc√°rraga's owning of his two identical Feadships back in the 80's - Paraiso and Azteca. He liked having one yacht in each hemisphere.

    I passed Fountainhead, and made a little movie while passing it.

    Could be possible, but don't forget Musashi's owner tends to name all his yachts with Japanese-themes. Plus, if he would own both, why were they spotted both in South of France/Monaco this past July?

    I heard a different rumor saying the owner was a close friend of Musashi's coming from Mexico...

    Care to say why you think it is an 'interesting' name?

    At the risk of being attacked by Cap. ED...fountainhead is the name of a very famous book by none other than that GREAT writer Ayan Rand...

    Several sources have quoted Cuban as saying about Rand's The Fountainhead, "It was incredibly motivating to me. It encouraged me to think as an individual, take risks to reach my goals, and responsibility for my successes and failures. I loved it."

    What, I wonder about both of these yachts which are very similar, "Musashi" and "Fountainhead", are the interiors. We already know what the interior of Musashi looks like, however, Fountainhead?

    Gorgeous video of Fountainhead!! I think it is very(!) interesting and informative... I have never seen something before. By-the-way you can see some parts of the interior particulary parts you usually do not see in features. For some of it is nothing special but for a newbie like me it is awesome!

    Nice find. I hope the OP releases the rest of the videos. Seems like she has a different bridge than Musashi.
