Bill Gates jumps aboard the US$330-billion yacht Serene
Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates was spotted holidaying off of the coast of Sardinia aboard the US$330-million yacht Serene.
Gate’s reportedly splashed out in the region of US$5 million a week to holiday in style with his family. Serene, owned by Stolichnaya vodka magnet Yuri Scheffler was delivered in 2011 and has been loosely on the charter market ever since.
The 133-metre yacht is one of the largest in the world and has an impressive array of amenities. The real head-turning points are her two helipads, indoor climbing wall, fully equipped spa, three swimming pools and below deck, an underwater viewing room plus space for its large submarine. Her lavish selling points don't end there though with, for those who like to party a dance floor complete with bandstand; for the foodies, Serene offers a wood fire pizza oven and a Teppenyaki grill. If you fancy a movie night, the guest cinema is the place to head.
She can accommodate up to 24 guests across 12 staterooms divided up in to a master suite, one VIP, seven double and three twin cabins. And with over 40 staff available on board, Gates and his family’s every whim will be taken care of.
