Larry Ellison owns 5th largest yacht

 

Larry Ellison - Motor Yacht RISING SUN

 

Larry Ellison owns a private luxury yacht – The fifth largest in the world, in fact.  She has a length of almost 138 meters (453 ft) and reportedly she cost over US$200 million to build.

Despite RISING SUN’s huge size she is actually sleek in profile and doesn’t blot out the sun like many luxury yachts this size.

Larry Ellison is the ninth richest man in the world and founder and CEO of Oracle. He’s worth around $18 billion, so he can afford to have a boat of this magnitude, even if it costs millions each year to just maintain it…

The yacht provides a gymnasium/spa and sauna, an extensive wine cellar, a private cinema with a giant plasma screen, a basketball court (like Paul Allen’s yacht) on the main deck which can be used as a helicopter pad if necessary.

Larry Ellison is a great patron of yachts and yacht racing.  He owns an America’s Cup sailing team called BMW Oracle. BMW Oracle is currently battling Team Alinghi in the courts over the fairness of Alinghi’s organisation of the next event.
