When A-list stars want to get away from it all, they choose these yachts for charter.

July 23, 2014

Yacht Altitude

Beyonce and Jay-Z: The hip-hop power couple regularly charter megayachts worldwide. One of their sightings was aboard the 180-foot Benetti Altitude, a 12-guest yacht that boasts a helipad, on-deck hot tub, gymnasium and at-anchor stabilizers. The lowest weekly base rate is $225,000.

Gwyneth Paltrow and yacht Silolona

Gwyneth Paltrow: This movie star isn’t afraid to go exotic, having chartered in Indonesia with her family aboard the 164-foot Phinisi-style sailing yacht Silolona. She’s also been spotted cruising in Italy as a guest aboard director Steven Spielberg’s 280-foot Oceanco Seven Seas.

yacht Ghost 1

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: Brangelina don’t need the biggest superyacht in the world. They went for the Warren 87 Ghost I in Sydney Harbour, Australia, when they wanted to enjoy some charter fun in the sun with the family. (The kids were spotted living it up on the foredeck sunpad.)

Leonardo DiCaprio and yacht Topaz

Leonardo DiCaprio: The man who brought the sinking of the charter yacht Nadine to life in the film “The Wolf of Wall Street” went high-profile for the recent World Cup in Brazil, where he reportedly either chartered or borrowed use of one of the world’s largest yachts, the 482-foot Lürssen Topaz.

yacht Phocea

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson: Tom Hanks may not have looked too happy on the water in his most recent film, Captain Phillips, but he and wife Rita Wilson picked a heck of a charter yacht for exploring the Turkish coastline when they booked the 246-foot sailing yacht Phocea.

Entourage cast and yacht Usher

Adrien Grenier, Kevin Connolly and ‘Entourage’: The boys of HBO stardom brought the whole cast (along with plenty of babes in bikinis) aboard the 154-foot Delta charter yacht Usher for scenes that will appear in the upcoming “Entourage” movie.

William and Kate and yacht Sea Stream

Prince William and Kate Middleton: In the Maldives, the Royals reportedly did some island-hopping during a charter aboard the 76-foot Ferretti Sea Stream, which just happens to be the fastest yacht available for charter in that region. (Great for fleeing the paparazzi.)

Lindsay Lohan and yacht Oasis

Lindsay Lohan: When the actress wanted to live it up in Cannes, France, she stepped aboard the 193-foot Lürssen Oasis, whose sundeck converts to a disco with state-of-the-art audiovisual systems throughout the guest areas. Perfect for a little karaoke.
