Elton John – $26 Million
Westport is one of the greatest yacht makers in the United States. So, it’s no wonder the iconic Elton John paid them just over $26 million to build his yacht, Wabi Sabi. Reportedly, the legendary rock star paid for the ship with earnings from his famous Coca-Cola commercials – among other profitable promotion payments.
Built to John’s exact specifications, the Wabi Sabi is bright white, has three levels, and can house up to eighteen guests in eight luxury cabins. Under the hood, so to speak, it sports twin MTU engines with 3650 horsepower, giving the celebrity yacht a cruising speed of 15 knots (20 mph). Hey, John’s $26 million ship is a reminder of how far he’s come since his early days as a “Rocket Man.”
