Chanel Iman on Ecstasea
It’s no secret that celebrities love yachts and, from Cannes to the Caribbean, 2015 was full of A-list celebrities spotted on superyachts. But who had the best vacations on the biggest yachts? Click through to relive our favourite celebrity yacht moments of 2015.
Chanel Iman on Ecstasea
American model Chanel Iman has enjoyed some seriously chic superyacht vacations in recent years and almost all of them were on board the 89.95 metre Feadship Ecstasea. She was most recently spotted on board a superyacht during the Cannes Film Festival but it is Iman’s annual New Year’s trip to Dubai which wins her a spot on our list.
Kendall Jenner on Princess K
Model Kendall Jenner posted this snap from the appropriately named Princess K during the Cannes Film Festival 2015 in May. Should Jenner (or her legion of fans) have been particularly fond of the yacht they will be glad to find out the 40 metre Sunseeker is currently listed for sale with Dbeere Yachts.
Mariah Carey on Arctic P
In true diva style, pop icon Mariah Carey was one of the first stars to step out on a superyacht this summer when she treated her children to a Mediterranean cruise on Arctic P in July. The yacht belongs to Carey’s boyfriend James Packer and the singer was sure to make full use of her glamorous Adrian Sassoon-designed surroundings with a series of Instagram posts highlighting the enviable yachting lifestyle.
Kylie Minogue on La Regina d’Italia
Australian pop star Kylie Minogue is a well-documented fan of a superyacht vacation and is most often found on board La Regina d’Italia – the 60 metre Codecasa owned by her fashion designer friends Dolce & Gabbana. Kylie posted this envy-inducing picture from the yacht’s sundeck while docked in Portofino, Italy in July.
Magic Johnson on Amadeus
Any keen celebrity yachtspotter will know where to find Magic Johnson during the summer months. Every year the basketball star famously charters the 70 metre Amadeus for a six-week cruise of the Med where he is joined by a bevy of A-list friends. This year’s guest list included Johnson’s son EJ, Samuel L. Jackson, Lewis Hamilton, comedian Chris Tucker and Tucker’s son Destin.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Power couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West celebrated the Fourth of July in style thanks to a cruise aboard Trinity Yachts' Utopia III. The yacht is owned by the couple's close friends Loren and JR Ridinger, who threw a party to celebrate the birthday of Larsa Pippen - another mutual friend and former wife of sports star and fellow superyacht owner Scottie Pippen.
Nina Dobrev on L’Albatros
Actress Nina Dobrev caused more than few jealous glances when she posted this image from the ultimate girls’ vacation aboard the 43.28 metre L’Albatros in July. Dobrev was holidaying with friends including Hillary Harley, Chandler Bailey and Tess Jantschek in St Tropez and the girls were sure to make the most of the extensive toy box – including a custom superyacht slide and some of the top jet skis on offer.
Stefano Gabbana on Regina d'Italia
Actress and wife of Alec Baldwin, Hilaria Baldwin, took time off from tending to her three-week-old second child to return to her fist love, yoga, in July. Enjoying a relaxing time on board a luxury yacht with her husband, Baldwin captioned this image: "This is called: Carmen's on a play date and I left the fridge stocked with milk for Rafa. Mommy and Daddy are heading out for 2.5 hours."
Jessica Simpson (L), pictured here with friend Odette Annable (R), celebrated her 35th birthday in luxurious surrounds in July with a yacht charter in St Barths. Celebrating with 20 family and friends in the waters off Nikki Beach, Simpson and her guests took advantage of all the yacht's amenities - including some of the best water toys and top jet skis.
