Celebrities appear to have it all. They get paid to showcase their talent and are loved by millions for making a career out of something they love. From a spectator’s point of view, the lifestyle of a celebrity is typically dipped in glitter in multiple aspects. While being rich and famous doesn’t always equate to a perfect life, it does come with massive perks. One of these perks includes spending some of their wealth on extravagant yachts that provide the opportunity for grand parties while they sail the emerald seas with shades on and a cocktail in hand.
Are you ready to see some of the most lavish celebrity-owned yachts in the world?
#1 Johnny Depp | Valjoliroja
Johnny Depp’s portrayal of Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean was a cinematic treat that we never knew we needed. In line with his character’s pirate image, it’s only suitable that this award-winning actor owns a ship (yacht) of his own.
His luxurious yacht is named Valjoliroja, which may sound like a tongue twister, but it’s actually a combo of the Depp family names: his ex-girlfriend, Vanessa; his own name, Johnny; his daughter, Lily Rose; and his son, Jack.
#2 Tiger Woods | Privacy
This lavish yacht is 47 meters in length and is owned by one of the best golfers on the planet. Tiger Woods’ illustrious career may have gained some negative buzz when his divorce was publicized, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t deserve “privacy”, just like the name of his gorgeous yacht implies.
#3 Paul Allen | Octopus
When you’re a self-made billionaire who helped build Microsoft, then you should definitely pamper yourself with a yacht that’s the size of a small town. Featuring a set of helipads, this tech genius can access this ship from anywhere. Did we mention that it also has a spa, a hot tub, a swimming pool, a movie theater, several game rooms, a recording studio, and 2 submarines? Sounds like this isn’t a bad place to live on for a few months, right?
