Larry Ellison has owned several superyachts: the 58 meter Lurssen yacht Ronin designed by Norman Foster, the 75 meter Blohm and Voss yacht Katana (now named Enigma), the 138 meter Lurssen yacht Rising Sun (which is now owned by David Geffen) and currently Ellison owns the 88 meter Feadship motor yacht Musashi.
Rising Sun was Too Large
Ellison actually sold Rising Sun, as he considered her too large to access interesting yachting destinations. The yacht Katana was built as Eco for the Mexican media billionaire Emillio Azcarraga, founder of Televisa. When Azcarrage died in 1997 (he actually died on board his luxury yacht near Miami), the family sold the yacht after a few years.
Izanami was built for Japanese
Ellison’s yacht Ronin was built in 1993 as Izanami for a Japanese millionaire. Izanami was sold in 1999 to Ellison. Ellison in his turn sold Ronin to Venezualan banker Victor Vargas, owner of the Banco Occidental de Descuento. In 2013 Ronin underwent a refit at Lurssen Yachts.
