Known for her penchant for enjoying the fine things in life, I am sure you wonder if Beyoncé has a yacht. A luxurious, 60 meter or so long yacht to brisk her away to the beautiful wonders of the world?
No. Beyoncé does not own a yacht. Beyoncé and her husband have a net worth of over $ 1 billion, so a yacht is well within their means. However, they do not own one yet. Their love for sailing and annual vacations is common knowledge, though.
There has, however, been rumors about them owning one. Keep reading to find out how these rumors started in this article.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s Rumored Yacht
Rumors of the duo owning a yacht arose between 2013 and 2015 when they were spotted in a similar vessel twice. The 65-meter yacht branded Galactica Star became associated with Jay Z and Beyoncé’s vacation by the paparazzi and adoring fans alike. The Daily Mail reveals that the Galactica Star is the second largest vessel that Heesen Yachts has built and one of the most exclusive ever built in the Netherlands. Heesen Yachts is a renowned and exclusive Dutch yacht builder enterprise. The real owner of the yacht is an African oil mogul based in Nigeria, Kola Aluko.
Due to the exclusivity offered to A-list celebrities, the yacht is usually never publicly advertised or listed for charter. But no worries, the yacht still gets some company despite its $900,000 per week charter cost. This is excluding expenses of fueling and food and beverage stocking while on the move. Add another 25% over the charter cost to indicate the true cost. No wonder they don’t publicly advertise.
The amenities, however, are to die for. Money Inc. gives us a brief into the amenities offered by the luxury vessel. There is a jacuzzi and air-conditioned lounging area on the upper deck finished off with a bar area. Whenever the couple gets too tense, a sauna is present to soothe those muscles. There is a glass-bottom pool yacht’s main deck and a sun-bathing deck.
Ready for Round Two?
In July 2018, the Black American hopped aboard another yacht for the summer holidays. The family was now much bigger due to the addition of the twins Rumi and Sir Carter. And the rumor mill took off again. This time, they rented out the 300 feet long Kismet, a luxury yacht owned by Pakistani-American businessman Shahid Khan.
There is no shortage of sleeping space aboard the Kismet. The yacht comfortably accommodates up to 12 guests. The luxury vehicle provides maximum comfort in the master bedroom that is fitted with a his and hers bathrooms. A personal office is available in case there are business needs to be conducted during the vacation.
Entertainment is a must during the long journey to the Mediterranean Sea. The yacht comes with a specialized club room for hosting parties. Just in case the power couple decides to have guests aboard. For the children, there is a dedicated cinema screen as the front deck.
What must have been a selling point for Beyoncé is what is hiding in the lower deck. A dedicated spa and gym room. We all know how Beyoncé loves to work out and take care of that body.
If Wishes Were Horses…
Where would the couple go if they had a yacht? American mogul cum songwriter Jay-Z surprised Beyoncé with an entire private island before they settled down to have the kids. It is reported that the island is located in serene and up-scale Bahamas/ Florida Keys Area, south of Miami. The island has a natural harbor that would be perfect for docking and setting off. A natural harbor will also provide an ideal setting for snorkeling and scuba diving due to the crystal clear waters.
While Bey and Jay-Z do not own a yacht yet, they sure do know how to make use of one. We are sure they will be willing to go on more holidays on a yacht.
