When Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and their six children wanted a day of serious fun in Sydney during their recent vacation to Australia, they chartered one of the area’s most exclusive superyachts, the Ghost II. The 120-foot Warren Sports Yacht, built in 2009, is a high performance vessel capable of outrunning the paparazzi with a top speed of 26 knots thanks to its twin 2,400hp engines. The yacht, said to be the most luxurious and modern vessel available for charter in Australia, features luxury accommodations for up to eight guests in four cabins, as well as six crew members in three separate cabins. The superyacht’s interior design is one of the world’s best, with staterooms paneled in exotic fine-grained Makore timber and soft cream-colored leather, set off by bold stainless steel detailing.
The vessel's interiors are modern, sleek and nautical in style with an Art Deco flair, and was designed by naval architect Peter Lowe and Anthony Starr Design (which did the interiors and exterior scheme). The Ghost II's main saloon features an open dining area with seating for eight guests, with various al fresco lounging and entertaining spaces as well. Chartering at about $90k per week, not including extras like a private chef and security detail, the luxury yacht is also available for outright purchase for about $10M.
