Larry Ellison - Motor Yacht RISING SUN

Larry Ellison - Motor Yacht RISING SUN

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.

Who owns a luxury yacht?

In this section of the site we focus on which famous, wealthy and interesting people own which superyacht.  We are not talking about the charter of a yacht or merely visiting friends on a yacht for a vacation.  Here we are talking about a celebrity who has actually chosen to purchase or build a yacht of a particular style or type for the long term. Someone who has thought long and hard about their boat. Yachts and their owner’s will be added here over time.  Please come back to see it grow. 

The type and style of yacht a person chooses to buy tells you a lot about their personal taste and style; their likes and dislikes.  The type of auto a person drives can tell you something about that person but a yacht can tell you a lot more.  A yacht is a large custom built home and no two yachts are alike.

Everyone would own a luxury yacht if they could.  I would anyway.  Luxury yachts are beautiful things indeed.  Being individually designed by the best designers in the world and then hand built by skilled craftsmen luxury yachts are like huge pieces of living sculpture that glide over the world’s oceans.  When a private yacht is large there is no other yacht the same.  There is no other crew the same and there is certainly no two owners alike.

The type and style of a yacht tells you a lot about that person.  What are their individual tastes?  Modern latest design or older classic? Do they like romantic classic motor boat like Jonny Depp’s yacht?  Do they like extra large yachts like?  Is it and ‘all ocean’ expedition yacht that can explore all parts of the world’s oceans, like Bono’s yacht from U2, or is it a coastal fast yacht design to sip around the fashionable coast lines of St Tropez, Monaco and Capri?  Do they like the sporty sailing yachts which use the wind’s natural forces for propulsion? It also tells you about a person by looking at the yacht they fell in love with.

The interior decoration of a yacht also gives an insight into someone’s likes and dislikes.  Because there are a huge number of yacht types to choose from it tells you about their particular tastes.  Modern interiors are chic, stylish and fashionable.  Classic interiors can be more relaxing – a place for friends and family to get away from it all and feel homely and comfortable: to float away in piece and privacy.

Tiger Woods owns a beautiful new American built motor yacht with relaxed and comfortable interior styling.

What about amenities, extras and water toys?  What can you do on the yacht?  Is there a deck Jacuzzi – somewhere to sip champagne and relax or throw a bikini party!  What type of water toys does the yacht have? Does the yacht have a Jet Ski and water ski speed boat?  What about windsurfers or even a submarine?  Is the celebrity the action and adventure type; is there a compressor for diving?

Microsoft Billionaire Paul Allen loves Luxury Yachts

Paul Allen Yacht

Paul Allen Yacht

Last week, former Microsoft boss and co-founder (with Bill Gates) Paul Allen arrived in Mombasa, Kenya on his super yacht.  Microsoft has made vast fortunes in computer software.

Paul Allen loves the luxury yacht and yachting lifestyle.  It’s an ideal way for a billionaire to spend some of his money as he can trip around the world in complete safety and privacy.

The Yacht is big enough for a floating basketball court.

In fact Paul Allen’s superyacht is an extraordinary example of a private motor yacht. OCTOPUS is a whopping 416 feet (127 m) – long enough to have secured its position as one of the world’s largest yachts in 2003 when it was launched. The luxury yacht’s is presently eighth in the list of motor yachts by length. Super yacht OCTOPUS is equipped with a music studio and a basketball court.

Philanthropy

The other way Paul Allen spends his cash is by giving it away.  Through the Paul Allen Family Foundation, he awards approximately $30 million in grants annually to organizations related to health and human services, and toward the advancement of science and technology.

Kenya

It is interesting that Kenya has been visited by several celebrities lately, not just Paul Allen. Naomi Campbell and previous boyfriend Mr Flavio Briatorre were recently sighted holidaying in the Mida Creek in Malindi, East Africa’s largest mangrove creek.  While Superman’s Dean Cain and The Last King of Scotland’s Forest Whittaker enjoyed Kenya’s internationally acclaimed game parks and stayed in the country’s capital Nairobi.
