A Luxury Yacht for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie?

Angelina and Brad walking down the dock.

Around the middle of last summer reports began to surface that superstar actor couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were looking at purchasing a new luxury yacht to be built for them in Italy. (http://www.actressarchives.com/news.php?id=5016 ) Further later reports have stated that these rumors are inaccurate.  Does anyone know whether the famous couple are actually planning to own a superyacht? 

We truly hope they are going to own a boat as a private yacht would be ideal for them to escape the media and paparazzi and enjoy vacations of peace and solitude with their beautiful young family.  Like other famous celebrities, such as Tiger Woods, Eric Clapton, U2’s Bono and Johnny Depp, Brad and Angelina are sure to discover the benefits of a floating paradise away from the crowds.

Here is an extract from actressarchives.com back in April 11 2007:

“Now, it looks like Brangelina are going to start living the rich life on their own, as rumors are swirling that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will purchase a luxury yacht valued at roughly $137 million.

Despite the fact Angelina Jolie has added another child to the always-growing family in the form of Vietnamese toddler Pax Thien Jolie, she and Brad Pitt are reportedly ready to make the big-ticket purchase of a 240ft-long three-deck luxury yacht, according to Monsters and Critics. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have reportedly ordered the massive luxury liner from a company located near Rome.

Perhaps Brad Pitt, an architecture enthusiast with an environmentally-friendly mind set, is preparing his family for the possibility of living on the boat, as the yacht comes more fully equipped than many houses do. The £70 million yacht will come complete with six ensuite bedrooms, complete with marble and gold fittings throughout. The massive yacht will also come complete with a helicopter pad, though there is no indication Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are buying a helicopter for their new yacht. As well, the 240-foot yacht will house a swimming pool and a full gym.

A&C reports that professional boat builder Mario La Via has confirmed the Privilege Yard near Rome has received an order for a luxury vessel with those specifications, though he would not say whether Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were the people who had ordered the vessel.”

The couple actually tried out some yachting last summer around the time of the Cannes Film festival on a friend’s yacht (Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s yacht “Tatoosh), and the images of that can be seen here. http://celebritiesonyachts.wordpress.com/2008/06/12/hello-world/

Brad and Angelina are no strangers to yachting.

Brad and Angelina are no strangers to yachting.

Here at Celebrities on Yachts we sincerely hope that Brad, Angelina and family are indeed planning to try out the pleasures of luxury yachting.  We are sure that a superyacht will fit their busy lives ideally and provide the perfect respite and privacy. 

If anyone has any more recent information related to Brad and Angelina and luxury yachts, please make a comment below.

Abramovich meets James Bond to counter pirates!

Megayacht ECLIPSE will eclipse all other luxury yachts.

Megayacht ECLIPSE will eclipse all other luxury yachts.

Update: Superyacht Eclipse has now been launched.

Mr. Roman Abramovich has a James Bond approach to the largest private yacht in the world.  I found this article at LiveYachting.com so you can read more there.

Roman Abramovich has a fantastic solution for keeping pirates and other unwelcome visitors at arm’s length – a huge megayacht with all the toys imaginable! The Motor Yacht in question is to be called ECLIPSE and she will be the biggest yacht in the world!

eclipse

Somalian pirates are a serious threat to commercial shipping presently. Mr. Roman Ambrovich is a very well known patron of the yachts and his solution is creating a motor yacht (megayacht ECLIPSE) which is complete with a missile detection system.

First, it will have radar designed specifically to warn of incoming rockets. And of course there will also be armored protection around the wheelhouse and the billionaire’s cabin – along with bullet proof windows.

If pirates do in fact do breach the security cordon and climb on board the beautiful superyacht and Abramovich, 41, can escape through secret corridors to a submersible submarine that is launchable underwater and can dive away to safety, up to 160ft in depth!

Some of the serious hardware on this massive yacht!

Some of the serious hardware on this massive yacht!

Motor yacht Eclipse will be the largest private yacht in the world and is rumoured to be about 508 feet (155 m) to 525 feet (160 m) long – even larger than Ambrovich’s the others in his impressive collection of yachts, such as the 37 foot Pelorus or Sussurro and Ecstase. The motor yacht is due for delivery next summer and is reported to be costing around £200m. She is currently under construction in the Hamburg, Germany by the shipyard Blohm + Voss that produced the famous World War II naval vessel the Bismarck.

Billionaire Roman Abramovich is famous for, amongst other things, being the owner of the Chelsea Football Club.

If you are surprised that such project will still go ahead in this economic climate, then be prepared for more surprise. So far the credit crunch has had little effect on the world of mega-yachts and according to ShowBoats International Magazine, 916 new private luxury yachts longer than 80ft are on order in 2008. This is an 18% rise from last year!

Larry Ellison owns 5th largest yacht

Larry Ellison owns a private luxury yacht – The fifth largest in the world, in fact.  She has a length of almost 138 meters (453 ft) and reportedly she cost over US$200 million to build.

Despite RISING SUN’s huge size she is actually sleek in profile and doesn’t blot out the sun like many luxury yachts this size.

Larry Ellison is the ninth richest man in the world and founder and CEO of Oracle. He’s worth around $18 billion, so he can afford to have a boat of this magnitude, even if it costs millions each year to just maintain it…

The yacht provides a gymnasium/spa and sauna, an extensive wine cellar, a private cinema with a giant plasma screen, a basketball court (like Paul Allen’s yacht) on the main deck which can be used as a helicopter pad if necessary.

Tigers Woods Wants Luxury Yacht PRIVACY

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods

Well its probably not surprising that famous pro golfer Tiger Woods owns a luxury motor yacht being a leading world sportsman.  Tiger named the superyacht PRIVACY because he and family and wife can enjoy the ultimate privacy onboard when they sail away from the media and fans.  Giving him valuable time away from the media buzz, PRIVACY may be one of Tiger’s most important pieces of golf equipment – even more than his putter.

Tiger Wood's Luxury Yacht PRIVACY

Yacht PRIVACY was built by Christensen Yachts. She is 155 ft long with stabilizers, a Jacuzzi pool and is made from composite material.

However, when you put down $20 million for a luxury yacht and call it “Privacy,”  you probably expect a little discretion from the company that sold it to you. So you can imagine why Tiger Woods was less than impressed at the Vancouver Shipyard Company for allegedly breaching a confidentiality agreement and braging to the world about the golfer’s purchase of the swanky megayacht.

Anyway, all is well now and Tiger and family enjoy cruising the world in privacy and safety.  Interestingly, another famous golfer Greg Norman also built and owned a large luxury motor yacht which is now called FLORIDIAN. It seems both legendary sportsmen have a little more than just golf in common.

Tigers Woods is a professional golfer who has more career major wins and career PGA Tour wins than any other active golfer.  His amazing achievements to date rank him among the most successful golfers of all time. Currently the World No. 1, he earned an estimated $122 million from winnings and endorsements in 2007 making him the highest paid athlete in 2007. Woods has actually won more pro major golf championships than any other male, and with 65 PGA Tour events he is the third all time in that respect.
