NRI billionaires

If you have a brood as big as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, a simple boat wont fit everyone; you need a yacht. And that is exactly what Brad Pitt has done. The hunk recently bought a £5 million yacht for his family and plans to sail near St Tropez in the south of France. He bought it after selling off a share of his French vineyard at Chateau Miraval to winemaker Marc Perrin. Microsoft co-founder and close friend, Paul Allen suggested the couple that they could offset the cost by chartering it out to people when they aren’t using it. The classic 75 ft schooner sleeps 8 and hence is perfect for the family, unless Brangelina decide to have another baby.
