Even though we are only in autumn, summer is quickly approaching.  When summer comes the celebrity actors, musicians, rock stars, fashion designers, entertainers, models and business people and the rich and famous are going to flock to their beautiful luxury yachts in the most amazing vacation spots in Europe.

Yachts are perfect for the rich and famous because they can more easily avoid the paparazzi – if they want to! Smart vacation move for famous and the ultimate in relaxation!  What a superb lifestyle.

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. https://celebritiesonyachts.wordpress.com/2008/06/12/hello-world/

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.
