Rowling in the Depp

JK Rowling pays £22 million for a yacht previously owned by Johnny Depp

 

Author JK Rowling has ignored the saying: “If it f**ks, floats or flies: Rent it, don’t buy it and don’t marry it!” and splashed out a cool £22 million ($32 million or €29 million) buying a yacht that was previously owned by the actor Johnny Depp.

The Harry Potter creator, whose fortune is said to top £580 million ($842 million or €771 million), is said to have fallen in love with the Amphitrite – which was previously called the Vajoliroja in honour of Depp’s then wife Vanessa Paradis and their children Lily-Rose and Jack – when she holidayed on it recently.

 

Built in 2001 and refitted in 2008 by Depp, the 156’2” five cabin vessel has the look a 1930s gentleman’s yacht but features state-of the-art technology and toys such as inflatable stand-up paddle boards, waterskis and a two-man kayak. It is described as being styled so as to recreate the “romance of a bygone era” with a “lavish, bohemian interior, pieced together with vintage velvet, Art Deco furniture and objets d’art”.

Those on a slightly more limited budget can charter the Amphitrite through Burgess Yachts. She is available for summer cruising in the Adriatic and West Mediterranean for between £74,000 and £92,000 per week ($107,000 and $134,000 or €98,000 and €122,500) and in the Caribbean in winter months for between £87,000 and £101,000 per week ($126,000 and $147,000 or €115,000 and €135,000).

 

So much for socialism. All hail the new Shemara: JK Rowling is most definitely now the new (Lady) Norah Docker.

  1. It will get her to Hull and back……….We Brits are a seafaring nation, the sea is in our blood, but few can afford it these days. Perhaps she can give me a lift to Amsterdam or Rotterdam.
