The yacht enjoyed by Sean “Diddy” Combs was purchased from Eric Schmidt of Google.com fame for $65 million but may have cost him as much as $72 million. It is a luxury vessel to say the least. For starters, it is a Lürssen yacht which is one of the highest end brands of luxury yachts. The vessel has a length just under 195 feet.
Combs has thrown many lavish parties on the vessels with a guest list that includes the likes of Adrien Brody, Lily Cole, Guy Fieri, Nicky Hilton, Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Guy Oseary, Ne-Yo, Kim Porter, Tara Reid, Michelle Rodriguez, Benicio del Toro, and Kanye West – to name a few. Combs has an estimated net worth of $550 million and he’ll need it just for the crew and maintenance alone.
The ship has an AquaGlide and other family oriented amenities. Additionally, it features its own night club. A yacht of this size requires a captain at an annual salary of at least $100,000 and an engineer who’ll command as much as $130,000 a year.
A good cook would cost $70,000 a year, but given Mr. Combs’ penchant for exquisite food, that will likely run him much more. The maintenance and cost of ownership will be a significant ongoing expense.
