Traveling by yacht is an experience that not many can afford, let alone owning one. Having a yacht lets people know that you’re doing a little better than “just great” in life. However, you can bump it up a notch and have a yacht equipped with a range of different amenities including a swimming pool, elevator, and even a smaller boat! If anyone knows how to live in style, it’s the rich and famous. Check out these 25 swanky yachts owned by some of the wealthiest celebs.
1. Sean “Diddy” Comb’s Maraya
Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, or simply Diddy, whatever you want to call him – he knows how to live. This native from Harlem has had a very successful career in the music industry with no end in sight. It only makes sense that he has the riches to show it. His $65 million yacht dubbed theMaraya is 54 feet long from nose to back and has 10 staff members on its every beck and call.
2. Johnny Depp’s Vajoliroja
Who knew that being a pirate actually pays off? It’s only fitting that the star of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has his own luxurious yacht. This superyacht, builtin Turkey in 2001, is 156 feet long and accommodates up to 10 guests in 4 cabins. And no, this isn’t stolen booty. The boat was sold to JK Rowling in 2016 and renamed Amphitrite.
3. Bono’s Cyan
The frontman of U2, Bono, purchased his 160-foot luxury yacht in 2008 and has since modernized it a bit. This yacht sleeps up to a dozen guests in 6 cabins, has a grand piano, indoor gym, and even a cinema for Bono’s guests to enjoy.
4. Nicole Kidman’s Hokulani
The richest celebrity coming from the Land Down Under, Nicole Kidman’s superyacht is nothing short of simply amazing. Valued at nearly $4.5 million, the Hokulani is equipped with five cabins, separate quarters for the crew, a spacious living area to kick back, and a kitchen and private chef. Nicole loves taking her yacht out during the summertime with her guests and family.
5. Richard Branson’s Necker Belle
Richard started off as a humble Christmas tree grower and seller, but his first successful business venture was his magazine Student. Today, the owner of Virgin Airlines is estimated to have a net worth of just over $5 billion. His love for sailing drove him to purchase the Necker Belle, a 105-foot yacht that housed 13 people and 5 crew members. It was sold in September of this year for roughly $4 million.
6. Steven Spielberg’s Seven Seas
The famous director of E.T. and Jurassic Park owns the Seven Seas – the yacht, not the actual seas (though he could probably afford them). This yacht was constructed by Oceano and measures 292 feet from nose to end. It comes with 23 crew members and houses 12 guests. They can enjoy traveling the seas and a quick dip in the yacht’s indoor Jacuzzi.
7. Steve Jobs’ Venus
The late CEO of Apple was one of the most prominent CEOs in the world, but stocks are where he earned his big bucks. He earned big and he splurged big. One of his most expensive assets was the Venus, a 255-foot yacht with 23 crew members and enough space for 12 guests. To operate the yacht, Jobs had a 27-inch iMac installed in the wheelhouse.
8. Leonardo DiCaprio’s Rising Sun
The Wolf of Wall Street scored himself a huge yacht. It has more than 26,000 square feet of living space and is the 11th largest yacht on the planet. Coincidentally, this yacht used to be owned by Larry Ellison, another man on this list.
9. Nicolas Cage’s Sarita
If he can steal the Declaration of Independence then he can definitely score himself a yacht. This misunderstood actor has owned four yachts while he was at the peak of his career, the most prominent of which was the Sarita. It had enough cabins to house 12 guests, and Mr. Cage has been spotted riding the rough waves aboard the Sarita numerous times. Unfortunately, he had to sell the Sarita in 2008 due to clashes with the IRS.
10. Beyoncé’s Galactica Star
Queen B lives the life of a literal queen. She owns the Galactica Star, a 213-foot mega yacht that is equipped with a spa, helipad, and numerous cabins that sleep 12 people. B and Jay-Z mostly enjoy taking the yacht out during the summer months to just kick back and avoid paparazzi.
