Photos: “Musashi” Super Yacht In Bermuda

October 10, 2015

The 288-foot long super-yacht Musashi – which is reported to be owned by billionaire Oracle founder Larry Ellison — is presently docked in St George’s.

Mr Ellison, who is reported to be worth some $48 billion, is the owner of America’s Cup defending champions Team Oracle USA.

It is unclear if the business tycoon is onboard the yacht, however he did apparently arrive at the America’s Cup racing held earlier this year Portsmouth in it, with the America’s Cup website reporting that he  “arrived in style” to the America’s Cup World Series as he “rocked up off Portsmouth’s shores onboard his superyacht Musashi.”

The America’s Cup organisers previously said that hundreds of boats are expected to come to Bermuda to enjoy the 35th America’s Cup in May/June of 2017.

“We expect visiting yachts to make up a significant component of the visitors who will be in Bermuda during the America’s Cup in 2017,” said Harvey Schiller, the Commercial Commissioner of the America’s Cup.

“With mooring facilities in the heart of the America’s Cup Village, the America’s Cup Superyacht Regatta, the J Class Regatta, not to mention the five weeks of America’s Cup racing, the offering for visiting yachts is very compelling.”

“Superyacht facilities are being offered in the America’s Cup Village in Dockyard as well as in Hamilton Harbor. All boat operators will be able to obtain spectator flags giving them privileged access to viewing areas around the race course area.”

Bermuda regularly plays host to some of the most expensive and luxurious super-yachts in the world, and you can view some of our past coverage of super-yachts by clicking here.

  4. WHAT! says:

    Shaggy and Maxi Priest are performing at the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series. The each of the owners for the America’s Cup are worth over 20 billion and counting, however the tickets for their show are $100. Like really they could have let the tickets go for $50, it’s not like they really need the extra money.

    • BDA Friend says:

      Should Shaggy and Maxi Priest be cutting their performance fees in half as well to please you?

    • Terry says:

      Not even worth a reply.
      Damn I did.

  5. Steel pulse…get steel pulse!

  6. captain obvious says:

    Chingas! Did they say $48 Billion? This guy could pay off our national debt and have some change left over.

  7. wow no fenders says:

    They got so much money the not using fender against that crappy dock.

    • Terry says:

      That port side has “fender” that cost $200,000.
      You have no clue what you speak of.

      • wow no fenders says:

        Oh I did not see any ropes. looks it fenderless in the pictures.

  8. Coffee says:

    It’s a very nice boat , almost as big as the one Cannonier could have bought .

    • bumper says:

      I think this boat is more in the region of $800M not sure who could afford that kinda cash but will get an answer soon.

      • Coffee says:

        I love the way you think ….. 2017 isn’t to far off . If a certain casino deal goes through between now and then, $800 million would be chump change . That nominal fee was about in the region discussed in D.C.

      • That’s how much SpongeBob spent in a year.

      • Coffee says:

        $800 ? Well , he almost had the down payment . If it wasn’t for them sniveling reporters .

  9. just wondering says:

    With all these nice boats that are going to e here for the AC,Govt should do something to entice them. Lower duty etc. It will be a win win for a lot of people, fuel, grocery stores etc.
    Ok go ahead nay sayers.

    • Terry says:

      Your comment makes no sense ‘just’.
      Read what you wrote.
      Shalom.

    • Lois Frederick says:

      I think I heard they are making it easier for visiting super yachts. So I think that has already been considered. Less red tape.

    • Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

      Why would you wanna lower prices for people that well exceed the ability to afford. ..yet you won’t lower them for the commoner…puzzles me.

      I’ve noticed that about people…If Beyonce came into your place of restaurant she could eat steak lobster and shrimps and you probably wouldn’t even charge her but I couldn’t get a peanut butter sandwich if I was a dollar short…

      • I and I says:

        True,true!

        • Its called Special Privilege. Something like white privilege.

          • true onion says:

            Who pays you to say this stuff? You are bent and broken, go outside and walk around. The rest of us are doing our best and you are sitting there….just sitting there.

            • Get your head out of the sand, celebrities get special privilege all over the world, and for white privilege, well that’s a Historical Orchestrated System.

      • just wondering says:

        Just trying to entice more people coming here. I think they should do something for boats in general.For example take the around the island power boat race,it use to be Bermudas most watched sport.If govt would give them a duty break maybe 6 months prior to race more people might spend. Just an idea.

        • Bumper says:

          Spend on what? I can sit on the rocks and watch them. No body in the rest of the world is interested in how fast they can go around, don’t get defensive with me it is true. I bet the ’round de island seagull race is more anticipated globally.
