Dreamscape on These 5 Yachts Owned by Celebrities
The phrase “dream boat” takes on a whole new meaning when we step into the glitz and glam world of celebrities and their yachts. Ever imagine hanging out with David Beckham on the deck of his Riva Argo 90, or on a cruise with Tony Parker on board his Turkish yard AvA Yacht, also known as Infinity… Well, in this post, you won’t have to wonder! In this post, we bring you aboard five yachts owned by celebrities:
- Giorgio Armani’s “Main”
- Jeff Bezos’ “Koru”
- Rafael Nadal’s “Great White”
- Roman Abramovich’s “Eclipse”
- The Edge’s “Cyan”
1. Giorgio Armani’s “Main”
Our voyage through the realm of celebrity-owned yachts begins with Main, an elegant vessel owned by the renowned fashion icon Giorgio Armani. While it might not command the same scale as some of its counterparts, Main measures approximately 65 meters and can accommodate up to 12 guests in addition to 14 crewmembers. The vessel serves as an extension of Armani’s unwavering commitment to aesthetics. Armani designed the interiors himself, taking a meticulous hand with the details to echo the timeless elegance that his brand epitomizes.
2. Jeff Bezos’ “Koru”
As the 3rd richest person in the world, it was only a matter of time before Amazon’s founder, Jeff Bezos, set his sights on an extraordinary nautical venture. Koru is a maritime marvel, with a commanding length of 127 meters, crafted by the renowned shipbuilders at Oceano in the Netherlands.
The superyacht boasts a three-masted schooner design, combining a robust steel hull with a lightweight aluminum superstructure. Koru primarily relies on kinetic energy generated by towering sails, but is equipped with engine power for when the winds calm down. This celebrity owned yacht can accommodate up to 18 guests and a crew of 36 people.
3. Rafael Nadal’s “Great White”
Great White is the yacht owned by tennis maestro Rafael Nadal. Designed by Sunreef Yachts, the vessel reflects Nadal’s pursuit of excellence and his appreciation for respite. At approximately 24 meters, the smaller size of Great White suggests that it’s designed for relaxation and simple exploration, providing a serene escape from the demands of Nadal’s athletic career. Great White can accommodate up to 8 guests across a 4-cabin layout. The interior was designed to feel like home for Nadal, as he aims to merge the comforts of his life on land with his passion for the sea.

4. Roman Abramovich’s “Eclipse”
At 162.5 meters in length, Roman Abramovich’s Eclipse is the largest, privately-owned superyacht in the world and the 3rd longest yacht in the world. Abramovich is a Russian Billionaire better known for his ownership of the Chelsea Football Club. However, Eclipse adds to his reputation as a showcase of his penchant for opulence, setting new standards for luxury and security on the water.
This colossal vessel boasts two helipads, a swimming pool with a retractable roof, multiple jacuzzies, and even an onboard missile defense system. Eclipse can accommodate a crew of 66 and up to 36 guests and can reach a top speed of 21.5 knots.
5. The Edge’s “Cyan”
U2’s The Edge–also known as David Howell Evans – owns the superyacht Cyan. While it might not be the grandest in size, at approximately 49 meters, the vessel exudes a sense of understated elegance and merges the wealth and luxury of yachting with The Edge’s rock-and-roll style.
In place of high-tech security systems and dual helipads, Cyan boasts an intimate atmosphere perfect for creating cherished family memories. Perhaps that’s why The Edge has opened Cyan for charters. The vessel can accommodate up to 12 guests and a crew of 11, and is well-known for having one of the best outdoor cinemas found on a superyacht.
