I’ve just had a very interesting conversation with Merle Wood who tells me that David Geffen has now taken sole ownership of Rising Sun, the 138m yacht he has co-owned with Larry Ellison for nearly four years.

Both long-standing clients of his, Merle explains that it made perfect sense as Ellison is about to take delivery of his new 88m Feadship Musashi.

Built by Lürssen in 2005 to a Jon Bannenberg design, Rising Sun has in excess of 8,000m² of living space with 82 rooms across five decks. Her features include a gym, a cinema, a wine cellar and a basketball court.

She is currently at the Lürssen yard in Germany where she will spend the winter undergoing some refit/modifications and upgrades for her new owner.
