The yacht Mine Games was built as Bistango. In 2018 the yacht was sold and named Lumiere II. Cline died in a helicopter crash near the Bahamas in 2019.

Who is Chris Cline?Chris Cline

He was born in July 1958. He started as an underground coal miner. He moved to management in the coal industry. And founded the Cline Group. He is sometimes referred to as King Coal. He also owns Gogebic Taconite. He was married to Kelly, together they have 4 children.

Mining billionaire Christopher Cline was the owner of the yacht Mine Games.

How Did Mr Cline Die?

Cline died in a helicopter crash in July 2019. His heli was on its way from the Bahamas to Fort Lauderdale, when it crashed into the Atlantic Ocean.  

Cline and 6 others, including his daughter, died in the crash. The cause of the crash in unknown at this time. A statement from the Royal Bahamas Police Force said the helicopter went missing shortly after leaving Big Grand Cay.

What is the Cline Group?

The Cline Group is the holding company for Cline’s mining activities. The group operated some of the most productive underground coal mines. And was one of the top 20 coal producers in the United States. In 2003 the Cline Group sold part of its operations and founded Foresight Energy.

Foresight Energy

Foresight Energy is a leading producer of thermal coal. With reserves in the Illinois Basin. The company is one of the largest holders of coal reserves in the United States.

Illinois coal is relatively cheap. But power plants using the coal need scrubbers to reduce sulfur dioxide emission. When federal regulations went into effect requiring power plants to install scrubbers demand for his cheaper coal soared.

Foresight Reserves LP realizes annual sales of US$ 1 billion. Foresight went public in 2014 and Cline sold a controlling stake in 2015 for US$ 1.4 billion in cash.

Gogebic Taconite

He also owns a share in Gogebic Taconite. A  iron-ore mining company active in Wisconsin. It is designed to produce low-grade taconite pellets used for steelmaking,

Mine Games Yacht

Cline’s yacht was built as Bistango. For a (we believe) Japan ese millionaire. She was delivered in 2010 by Benetti.

In 2015 she was bought by Cline. Who named her Mine Games (like his previous Trinity yacht). Mine Games can accommodate 12 guests and has a crew of 14. Her opulent interior with marble and gold is designed by Studio Massari.

Her MTU engines give her a top speed of 16 knots. Her cruise speed is 15 knots. The yacht has a range of 8,000nm. She was refitted in 2015. The yacht can accommodate a helicopter on her heli deck.

The luxury yacht was listed for sale, asking US$ 30 million. We think Cline is building a new yacht. The yacht was sold and is now named Lumierre II. The yacht replaces a 50 meter Benetti. Do you know who owns Lumierre II? Please do send us a message.

Trinity Yacht Mine Games (now Amarula Sun)

Cline previously owned a 50 meter Trinity yacht. She was built in 2007. The yacht was also named Mine Games. A reference to Cline mining business. The semi-displacement yacht can reach a top speed of 22.5 knots.

She has accommodations for 12 guests and a crew of 10. In 2013 the yacht was sold to Raymond Craig who named her Amarula Sun. Craig is founder of Critical Solutions International, active in detecting and mitigating threads for security forces worldwide.

Yacht Charter

The boat is not available for yacht charter. And she is not listed for sale.

Chris Cline Net worth

His net worth is estimated at US$ 1.9 billion (May 2019). For a few years he dated Tiger Woods ex wife Elin Nordegren.

In 2012, aspiring actor Vivek Shah was arrested for the attempted extortion of Chris Cline, Harvey Weinstein and three other individuals. Shah threatened to kill members of Cline's family if US$13 million was not wired to an offshore bank account. In 2013 Shah was sentenced to seven years in prison.


He is an active philanthropist through his Cline Family Foundation. He supports sports medicine research. He donated US$ 8.5 million to Marshall University School of Medicine in West Virginia. To create an Indoor Athletic Facility. And the foundation awards scholarships to high school senior graduates from West Virginia high schools.

Cline Private Jet

The coal magnate owns several private jets. His personal jet is considered to be an Embraer Lineage 1000 with registration N760CC.

The jet was delivered in 2015 and has a list price of US$ 55 million.  An Embraer Lineage can accommodate 18 passengers. The jet is actually one of the larger private jets available in the market.

Cline also owns two smaller jets. An Embraer Legacy 500 (N762CC) and an Embraer Legacy 505 (N73FE). Both jets cost around US$ 18 million.

All three jets have similar paint jobs. Cline owns a Agusta 109 helicopter (N613CC). An Agusta 106 has a value of US$ 6 million. The heli was often spotted on his yacht. It was put for sale at the same time of the yacht.

Cline House

Cline owns many houses. But his main residence is a large mansion in Palm Beach. The house is valued at US$ 27 million. The mansion is very large with an area of 33,413-square-foot (3,104.2 m2).

It was built in 2006. It contains 7 bedrooms and 10.5 bathrooms. The house has a pool, a hot tub, an elevator and parking for 26 cars. Cline purchased the house in 2003 for US$ 10 million.

He actually owns two neighboring oceanfront estates. Cline also owns a large 150 acre estate in West Virginia. The estate overlooks a large private lake and features a private race track.


In 1987 Cline lost his first wife Sabrina to cancer. He married Kelly Cline in 1993. They divorced in 2000. They have four children. Two daughters named Candice and Kameron. And two sons named Christopher and Alex.
