It has been widely reported in the press that Jay Z and Beyonce celebrated her 32nd birthday with family and friends on the brand new luxury yacht 'Galactic Star' in Italy this week.
The happy couple boarded the luxury yacht on Monday in Formentera, Spain and headed to the spectacular Italian coast around the volcanic island of Stromboli. The motor yacht 'Galactica Star' is the newest and largest Heesen ever built, at 65m this yacht features a unique 'fast displacement" hull which offers the owner or charter guests the best of both worlds - a very fast yacht with large internal volume and comfort, together with being more more fuel efficient.
E-Online comments "Our yacht expert estimates the purchase price of the brand-new Galactica Star to have been around $50 million, noting that the boat isn't listed among charter companies as an acquirable rental, so Beyoncé and Jay-Z likely pulled some insider strings to gain access". They are correct M/Y Galactica Star is not officially listed for charter by any of the leading Yacht Charter Brokerage houses in the world, or it would be listed on this site, so how is this possible?
Either they know the owners of the yacht and have been allowed to use the yacht for the week, or it is a private yacht which is available for select charters on a very limited basis. There are a few large iconic superyachts which are available to charter, but are never openly marketed, as such and these are only offered to a select few VIPS from the leading luxury yachting companies such as Edmiston, Fraser Yachts, Burgess and Camper & Nicholsons.
