In February 2020 international media reported about Bill Gates Yacht: He is supposed to have purchased Project Aqua, a 112-meter yacht designed by Sinot Yacht Design. This is ‘fake news’: Gates did not buy this yacht.

We were told however that Gates is actually building a new yacht. He is building at a Dutch yard (according to the Telegraph it is Feadship), with a UK based designer. Do you know more about this project? Please do send us a message.

Bill Gates SuperYacht

Does he own a yacht? He ordered a large yacht in The Netherlands. The yacht will be delivered around 2022. He is often linked to large yachts around the world. Media is naming them ‘the yacht of Bill Gates’.

Update: Gates is rumored to have bought a yacht. Media report that it is the 112 meter Project Aqua. But this is incorrect and fake news. Gates is building a large yacht in The Netherlands however. If you have more info on this project? Please do send us a message.

Do Gates’ Friends Own Yachts?

He does have a lot of relatives, friends and business partners who do own large yachts. Therefore he is often spotted at large superyachts around the world

For example, his 1994 honeymoon was on Paul Allen’s yacht Charade. In 2012 he was spotted in Belize on Dennis Washington’s motor yacht Attessa.

Where Does Gates Spent his Holiday?

In 2014 he was having a holiday with his family on board the yacht Serene. Serene is one of the largest yachts in the world. At the moment the yacht was owned by Russian billionaire Yuri Shefler. The yacht is now owned by the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia.

To charter a yacht the size of Serene will probably cost more than US$ 2 million per week.

This is Crazy:

Yachts often wrongly referred to as his yacht are: Octopus (owned by his business partner Paul Allen) and Skat (owned by his other business partner/ employee Charles Simonyi). And Attessa owned by US billionaire Dennis Washington.
