Peter Antonucci was a commercial litigator in the New York City offices of two of the largest law firms in the world -- Weil, Gotshal & Manges, and Greenberg Traurig -- before retiring from his partnership at age 52. 


For his next chapter, Peter became a co-owner and Member of the Board of Directors aboard The World, the world’s largest residential yacht. Spending nine to ten months a year at sea, he has explored over 100 countries -- sometimes visiting all seven continents, as well as Antarctica, in consecutive years. Peter holds a Guinness Book of World Records certificate for having been a passenger and part-owner of a boat that traveled to 78°43’-99.7” S, 163° 41’ 42.1” W in 2017, the southernmost point ever reached by a vessel. His travels inspired his critically acclaimed series, Billionaires at Sea. The first book, Billionaire’s Paradise: Ecstasy at Sea was released in 2019. Scandal at Sea: Billionaires in the Deep was released in 2022, and became a bestseller that same year. The third, and final, installment in the trilogy, Tides of Betrayal: Scandal on the Waves, was released in December 2023 and became an instant bestseller. Peter’s trilogy – and his travels aboard The World – were recently featured on CNN, Business Insider, The New York Post, and a dozen other news sources.

As an attorney, Peter served as national coordinating counsel in class action consumer fraud cases, antitrust and bankruptcy law, was a national expert in punitive damages – a field in which he was involved in cases before the United States Supreme Court - and served as special counsel to several major US companies in areas of corporate governance and criminal/internal investigations.

Peter has two children, Alexander and Nicole. He currently resides in Palm Beach, FL and Ridgefield, CT with his wife, Tami, and their dog Daisy, and their horses, Vera & Lucy.
