Pop star Justin Bieber kicked off 2016 in style on board a superyacht in St Barths. Between performing at Leonardo DiCaprio's New Year's Eve party and hanging out with his model girlfriend Hailey Baldwin, Bieber managed to squeeze in some family time on a yacht with his siblings Jazmyn and Jaxon.

However, this wasn't Bieber's first time on a luxury yacht. During summer 2015 the singer caused an Internet storm by posting a naked photo of himself standing on the aft deck of a yacht and weeks later added another photo - captioned 'I caught a big one' - showing off his fishing prowess while standing on the bow of a large yacht. Although it is unclear exactly which yacht Bieber chose for this jaunt, he is known to be a fan of the 37.18 metre Oceanfast yacht Never Say Never, which shares the same name as the singer's 2011 tour.

Pop star Kylie Minogue is no stranger to a glamorous superyacht vacation so when she headed home to perform in Sydney in March 2016 it only made sense that she should make time for a envy-inducing cruise around Sydney Harbour. Looking relaxed and at home on a luxury yacht, Kylie demonstrated why there really is no better way for an international music sensation to travel.
