McPike lives on board his yacht Home. The yacht is berthed to a large plot on Paradise Island, Nassau, the Bahamas.
We think he owns a jet, but we have not yet been able to identify its registration number.
The yacht was built at Heesen and was delivered in 2017. The yacht is designed by Omega Architects while Cristiano Gatto Design is responsible for her interior.
She is powered by 2 MTU engines. The engines bring her a top speed of 16 knots. Her cruise speed is 14 knots. The yacht is propelled by an innovative hybrid propulsion package. She can reach 9 knots when powered by her electrical engines only. Her range is more than 3,500nm.
Home can accommodate 12 guests and has a crew of 9. Her features include a spa pool, a gym, and a hammam.
The yacht is legally owned by a company named New Life Ltd. New Life is also the name of his previous yacht: a 28 meters Lazarra 92 LSX. He used to live on board this yacht, before buying the Heesen Home.
The boat is not available for yacht charter. The yacht is not listed for sale.
