Tiger Woods is looking to unload the lavish 155-foot Privacy Yacht, originally purchased for ex-wife Elin Nordegren as a wedding present. Tiger is seeking a whopping $25 million for the extravagant vessel that he reportedly paid $20 million for in 2004.
After Nordegren didn’t want it ether as a part of her divorce-settlement, the yacht with a permanent crew of 13 is now looking for new owners. The yacht which costs over $2 million a year to maintain was sailed to dry-docked in a yard at Fort Lauderdale for 2 months for painting the hull and re-surfacing for the deck. Wood’s could be selling the yacht to earn a bit of extra cash after dishing out a hefty $100 million divorce settlement to his ex and losing $100 million a year in endorsements.
The Privacy is a 155 Trideck fiberglass motor yacht with a 29.5 foot beam. Propulsion on the yacht is from a pair of 1,800 hp MTU/Detroit Diesel motors while two 99 kilowatt Northern Lights generators provide electrical power. Fluid capacities are 12,000 gallons of fuel and 2,000 gallons of water, and Tiger Woods’ yacht usually carries three SeaDoos, two ocean kayaks and two Vespa scooters. On the boat’s deck is a large bar and a 8 person jacuzzi. The yacht also has a station to fill scuba tanks and an inflatable decompression chamber. The interior of Tiger Woods’ yacht is filled with cherry woodwork. The VIP stateroom is aft with two queen size cabin amidships and a twin cabin. The second twin cabin has been converted to a workout room with a treadmill, exercise bike and free weights. The sweeping staircase has transparent stairs and a cherry handrail. The main living area is an open floor plan with only a single divider between the saloon and the dining room. Along with a staircase there is an elevator that will hold three people.
Woods recently bought a 62-foot diving boat, Solitude, for $3.1 million which he plans to use for trips with his children. [The Palm Beach Post]
