If you have the money you can get whatever you want. That will now include Johnny Depps’ boat. No, he doesn’t come free with it. After playing the obnoxious yet charming pirate Captain Jack Sparrow in the hugely successful Pirates of the Caribbean movies, he felt like having a boat of his own. And when you are a multi million dollar star, then that boat is a 156-foot luxury yacht.
He even decorated his new boat with the Captain’s signature jewel-toned velvet fabric and a Jolly Roger flag, to be reminiscent of the movie. The steam powered yacht can accommodate 11 guests and 8 crew members. It also is equipped with facilities such as two speed boats, wakeboards, kayaks, water skis and wind surfing equipment. It sure sounds like a dream for someone interested in water sports.
The actor has taken his yacht to Italy, Florida, Annapolis, Maryland and his very own Caribbean island called Little Hall’s Pond Cay. You can do the same with you near and dear ones if you happen to be rich (very very rich). Burgess Yachts is renting Johnny’s yacht for €98,000 (approximately $130,000) per week in the high season and €84,000 (approximately $110,000) in the low season.
Keeping up with his quirky reputation, he has named the boat “Vajoliroja”, a combination of the first letters of the names of each member in his family “Va”, for his girlfriend Vanessa Paradis, “Jo”, for himself, “LiRo”, for his 10-year-old daughter Lily Rose and “Ja”, for his 8-year-old son, Jack.
