The amazing yachts owned by sports stars, from McGregor's £2.7m Lamborghini Tecnomar 63 to Woods' 'Privacy' worth £15m

FORGET chartering – these sports stars are SO wealthy, they've splashed the cash and bought their own private yachts.

The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Conor McGregor, Michael Jordan aren't content with paying tens of thousands of pounds for a week's worth of travel.

Instead, they are kings of the ocean, cruising around in luxury vessels they own themselves.

Here's what they've spent their millions on.


Back in June, the Juventus legend decided to buy his own yacht – spending £5.5million on the Azimut Grande.

Built in the Versilia shipyards of Azimut-Benett, it boasts five luxury cabins and six stunningly decorated bathrooms.

There's also a modern kitchen onboard, as well as two relaxation areas, a huge lounge, and a lavish dining room.

Previously, he rented the Africa I yacht from a charter company before buying his own.

This summer he was able to take his family, including missus Georgina Rodriguez ,out on the Azimut Grande as they sailed along the Tyrrhenian coast.


The Notorious recently parted with £2.7million for a rare Lamborghini yacht.

The Tecnomar 63, dubbed the 'Supercar of the Sea', is one of only 63 of the yachts that will ever be made – he scored the 12th edition.

McGregor took to social media to show his off his latest lavish purchase.

He wrote in a caption with a picture of the yacht: "Lamborghini’s first entry into the Sport Yacht World comes in the form of this 63foot, 4000bhp, duel engine, twin turbo, rocket ship!"

It is believed to be the second yacht McGregor owns alongside a £3million Prestige 750.

The 32-year-old's new boat has been designed and built by the Italian Sea Group and Tecnomar for Lamborghini.


In 2004, Woods didn't mess about. He bought a "dinghy" yacht, as he called it, and named it 'Privacy'.

Incredibly, it measures 6,500 sq ft and can sleep ten guests in five state rooms.

The 155ft vessel also has a fully-equipped gym on board, a three-person elevator to get between floors, a massive eight-person Jacuzzi and a bar.

There is also a scuba station and still room on the yacht to carry three jet skis, two ocean kayaks and two Vespa scooters.

Unsurprisingly, it costs £1.5million a year to run.


The 13-time French Open winner has long been a seaman.

And when he sold his 76-foot Italian-built MCY 76 motor yacht for £2million, he found the perfect replacement.

He spent £4.5million on a customised 80 Sunreef Power catamaran that boasts some incredible features, including a waterfall-fed spa pool, jet ski garage and on-deck bar.

Nadal's master suite, which is also on the main deck, offers sea views, as well as natural light thanks to the skylight overhead.

It has an en-suite bathroom with a shower, a spacious closet and a desk.


The richest sports star ever — worth around £1.5billion – wasn't going to miss out on owning a yacht.

Chicago Bulls legend Jordan has a Viking Sportfish 80 that cost around £6million.

The 80-foot long vessel is called 'Catch 23' after his famous number – and if you look carefully at the design you'll see his Jordan Brand elephant print along the side and a panther on the stern.

A keen fisherman, Jordan often takes part in the Big Rock Fishing Tournament in North Carolina.

And the NBA icon caught a 201kg blue marlin back in June competing in the competition.


The legendary Aussie golfer is used to being a dominant force.

That's where Norman probably got the inspiration to call his former yacht 'Aussie Rules'.

At the time he bought it, it was the world’s largest privately owned aluminium and composite yacht at 228 feet.

Aussie Rules boasted luxury cabins for 12 guests, two hyperbaric chambers, a £1million cinema, a pool and outdoor spa, a gym and a tackle room with 200 fishing rods.

In 2004, Norman sold it for an outrageous £54million.
