Yacht Drizzle - Inditex Chairman

Who is Amancio Ortega Gaona?

He is the owner of the yachts Drizzle and Valoria B. He is the founder and controlling shareholder of Inditex. Inditex is a Spanish retailer. It is known for his Zara brand.



Amancio OrtegaInditex

Inditex is the biggest fashion group in the world. The company has more than 7,200 stores. It realizes more than US$ 25 billion in annual sales. Inditex has more than 162.000 employees.


The company started life as Confecciones GOA. It was a modest workshop making dresses and quilt dressing gowns for distribution. In ten years, the workforce grew to 500. In 1975 he opened the first Zara store. Zara products are sold over the world.



Massimo Dutti

Massimo Dutti is a clothes manufacturing company. It is part of the Inditex group. Massimo Dutti has more than 4,000 employees. In the early years the company only sold men’s clothing.



Amancio Ortega Net Worth

Ortega holds 1.8 billion shares or 59% of the share capital. He holds the shares through his personal holding company Pontegadea Inversiones SL.


In 2016 the company received more than US$ 1.2 billion in dividends. That was EUR 0.60 per share. He uses the dividends to invest in real estate. He owns several luxury hotels, including a hotel in Miami.


The net worth of the Spanish billionaire is estimated at US$ 57 billion. This makes him the richest person in Europe. He is almost as rich as Bill Gates.


For a short time he was the richest man in the world.



Amancio Ortega House

He owns several houses. He is said to frequently use a country house in La Coruna, Spain. His daughter Marta married there in 2012 with Spanish equestrian Sergio Álvarez Moya.


He and his wife Flora Perez also own a large town house near the marina of La Coruna.



Philanthropy

Ortega is an active philanthropist through his Amancio Ortega Foundation. In March 2017, the foundation pledged to spend $344 million. That was to acquire the latest breast cancer-screening technology for public hospitals across Spain.



Private Jet

Up to a few years ago, he was using a Bombardier BD-700 jet with registration EC-IBD. The jet was operated by Gestair. We are not sure which private jet he uses now. But if you know please send us a message.



Update: He uses the Gulfstream G650 with registration EC-LZU. The jet was delivered in 2014 and has a list price of US$ 65 million.



Yacht Drizzle

The yacht Drizzle was delivered by Feadship in 2012. The 67 meter yacht is designed by De Voogt Naval Architects. The yacht is a replacement for the smaller (55 meter) yacht also named Drizzle.


The new yacht was styled similar and proportioned accordingly to the first Drizzle. The two yachts look like sisters. In the summer of 2017 the owner and his wife Flora were pictured by The Daily Mail. They were having a holiday on board their yacht Drizzle.



Yacht Drizzle Interior

Redman Whiteley Dixon is responsible for the interior of motor yacht Drizzle. She can accommodate 10 guests and has a crew of 19.



Yacht Twizzle

The 55 meter yacht was built as Twizzle. We think for UK business man Michael Bradfield. The yacht was sold to Ortega and named Drizzle. Upon delivery of the new Drizzle, the 55 meter was sold to  a Japanese. He named her Issana.


The Japanese owner sold Issana to US real estate developer Jeffrey Soffer. Soffer named her Madsummer.



Yacht Valoria B

Several Spanish news sites mention that the Feadship Femke is Ortega’s new yacht. We were in doubt at first. Since Femke does not seem to be a logic name for a Spanish billionaire.


But Femke is now named Valoria B. And that makes sense as he used to own a smaller yacht named Valoria. So indeed the Feadship Valoria B (built as Femke) is his new yacht.



Yacht Charter

The boat is not available for yacht charter.
