Yachts of Larry Ellison

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. He replaced her with the ‘smaller’ 88 meter Mushashi

Yacht Katana

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 a Japanese Millionaire

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.

Larry Ellison

Larry Ellison is an American billionaire and successful entrepreneur.

US$ 60 Billlion Net Worth

He is co-founder and chief executive of Oracle Corporation, one of the world's largest enterprise software companies. In 2016 Ellison holds a 22.5% stake in Oracle, which makes him one of the richest people in the world, with an estimated net worth of US$ 60 billion.

US$ 1,00 Base Salary

His base salary is just US$ 1.00 per year, but his total compensation in (stock) options is around US$ 40 - 50 million per year. Next to this he receives an annual dividend of more than US$ 500 million per year, on his 1.1 billion stocks in Oracle. These amounts sufficiently support his expensive lifestyle with yachts and private jets.  

US$ 38 Billion in Annual Sales

During the 1970’s, Larry Ellison worked on a database for Ampex Corporation. This inspired him to found the ‘Software Development Laboratories’ in 1977. SDL was later renamed Oracle after its successful product: the Oracle database.

Oracle Corporation

In 2015 Oracle Corporation has more than 135.000 employees, realizing sales of USD 38 billion with a net profit of USD 10 billion.

G650 Private Jet

Larry Ellison is the owner of a Gulfstream G650 private jet with registration N817GS. The jet was delivered in 2015. The G650 has a list price of US$ 75 million.

Wing and Prayer

The jet is registered to the company Wing and Prayer Inc, which is owned by Ellison. (Ownership is confirmed in this court document, although the case relates to an older jet also owned by Ellison)

Larry Ellison House

Ellison owns many houses around the world. But his most notable are his Japanese themed house In Woodside, San Fransisco. The 23 acres estate, which was built in 1999, has an estimated value of US$ 200 million. He also owns a golf estate in Rancho Mirage and a house in Atherton.
