Usher

in comedy series Entourage

When US comedy series Entourage was given the Hollywood treatment in 2015 it was only fitting that the party-loving boys should be seen living the high life on a glamorous yacht.

Delta Marine’s 2007 launch Usher (ex-Mr Terrible) took on a starring role by hosting a yacht party in the film’s opening scene, before lead character Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) embarks on a disastrous career directing movies.

M3

The ill-fated Wolf of Wall Street superyacht

M3 (previously Lady M) played a crucial role in 2013 film The Wolf of Wall Street. When Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) hits the big time, he splashes out on the luxury yacht and names it Naomi after his second wife (as played by Margot Robbie).

However, the film takes a disastrous turn when the superyacht sinks during a stormy passage between Porto Cervo and Capri — a scene that closely mirrors Belfort’s real-life yachting disaster in 1997. Directed by Martin Scorcese, The Wolf of Wall Street was one of the most successful movies of 2013, grossing more than $116 million at the box office.


Ocean Emerald

The extreme sports superyacht in Point Break

When American film director Ericson Core set about remaking the 1991 extreme sports movie Point Break, he turned to the world of superyachts to give his 2015 version an extra helping of glamour. Ocean Emerald, the 41 metre from Rodriquez Yachts, was used as a key filming location, with a skateboarding ramp fitted to the bow, for some spectacular stunts.
