Top 5 Celebrity Yachts
Posted by:GJW Direct | Aug 26, 2020
Celebrities can often be an enigma when not on screen, but one thing some celebrities haven’t been shy about is their extravagant lifestyle aboard their luxury sailing yachts. Key names from Hollywood, sport and entrepreneurism have been photographed aboard their leisure boats in recent years.
If you’re looking for design inspiration, price comparison or simply curious which celebrities have customised their own private yachts, we’ve listed our top 5 favourites...
Tiger Woods - Privacy
Famous for winning 15 major golf championships since turning professional in 1996, Tiger Woods has become a world-wide sensation with a net worth of $800 million. Something you may not know about this famous golfer is he can often be found travelling to various golfing tournaments via his luxury yacht, Privacy, priced at $20 million.
Docking at various marinas, he uses it as a home during many of these tournaments and it's not hard to see why Woods prefers residing in his luxury cruiser instead of a hotel. With a large deck bar, a cinema, a decompression chamber for scuba diving, jacuzzi and a gym at his disposal, we wouldn’t want to be anywhere else either!

Interestingly, celebrity tennis player Rafael Nadal has been a longtime lover of yachts and intends to use his new vessel to sail around the coastline of his home in Mallorca.
This yacht owner had the boat customised by the world’s leading designer Sunreef Yachts for his 34th birthday. A full stock of images were released in June 2020 showcasing the level of detail and care taken during its creation. Nadal had a hand in design elements, incorporating his favourite colours, cream, coffee and beige into the colour scheme.
One of its biggest features is the expansive flybridge equipped with a bar, barbecue and lounge area for ultimate luxuriousness.
Roman Abramovich - Eclipse
Best known as the owner of Chelsea, a premier league football club, this Russian billionaire first acquired the team back in June 2003, undertaking an ambitious strategy which led to 13 major trophies. Abramovich’s ambitiousness doesn’t stop there, this drive for excellence can also be seen in the design of his private yacht which measures 533 ft and has been priced at $500 million.

For anyone looking for design inspiration, what could be more luxurious than customising your own indoor swimming pool? Pair that with a lounge area and a landscape window for the ultimate picturesque view over the horizon. Roman Abramovich has the right idea!
Eclipse is considered to be one of the most expensive yachts in the world and it's easy to see why when you catch a glimpse of its luxury interior.
Alan Sugar - Lady A
First launched in 1986 by Nishii Zosen-Sterling, this superyacht was bought by famous tycoon Lord Alan Sugar who remained the vessel after his wife Ann, thus becoming known as Lady A.
Since acquiring this $14 million yacht, Sugar has redesigned elements to better suit his needs. A Jacuzzi and two private lounges were just some of the added features.
With a customised sundeck, complete with its own bar and seating area, no expense has been spared to provide its owner with the perfect place to relax and enjoy those spectacular views.
