He has owned several superyachts:

* the 88 meter Feadship motor yacht Musashi. This is his current yacht.

Musashi Yacht

Musashi was built by Feadship and was delivered in 2011. The yacht is designed by De Voogt Yacht Design. She has a length of 88 meters (287ft). She is a sistership to Fountainhead, which is owned by Eddie Lampert.

Musashi is powered by 4 MTU diesel engines. Which bring her a top speed of 21 knots. She has a cruise speed of 18 knots. Her range is 6,000nm. She has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure.

Her interior is designed by Sinot Yacht Design. The superyacht can accomodate 18 guests and a crew of 24.

Rising Sun Yacht

Rising Sun is a 138 meter (454ft) yacht built in 2004 at Lurssen. She has a displacement of 7,841t, which makes her one of the larger yacht around.

She is powered by 4 MTU diesel engines. Which bring her a top speed of 28 knots. Her cruise speed is 26 knots.  She can accomodate 16 guests and a crew of 45.

Ellison actually sold Rising Sun, as he considered her too large. She is unable to access interesting yachting destinations. He replaced her with the ‘smaller’ 88 meter Mushashi. The yacht is used as support vessel at the america cup.

Katana Yacht

The yacht Katana was built by Blohm Voss as Eco for the Mexican media billionaire Emillio Azcarraga. He was founder of Televisa.

Azcarrage died in 1997. He actually died on board his luxury yacht near Miami. His family sold the yacht after a few years.

The yacht is powered by 2 Deutz diesel engines and one General Electric gas turbine. The combined power is 28,497hp. These bring her a top speed of 35 knots. Her cruise speed is 19 knots. She has a range of 3,500nm.

The luxury yacht can accomodate 14 guests and a crew of 19. The yacht has a steel hull and a composite superstructure. Her interior is designed by Francis design.

Izanami Yacht (now Ronin)

The yacht Izanami was built in 1993 at Lurssen yacht. Her comisisoning owner was based in Japand. He sold her to Ellison in 1999.

The 58 meter (192ft) yacht is powered by 2 MTU 16V595 engines, with a total of 12,000hp. These bring her to a top speed of 30 knots. Her cruise speed is 18 knots. She has an aluminum hull and superstructure.

Ellison in his turn sold Ronin to Venezualan banker Victor Vargas. He is owner of the Banco Occidental de Descuento. In 2013 Ronin underwent a refit at Lurssen Yachts.

She was later listed for sale, asking US$ 16 million. We think she was not sold and is now delisted.
