When you’re Simon Cowell, a yearly holiday get-away means sunbathing on a £275,000 per week super luxury yacht in St. Barts.
The 196 ft. floating palace sleeps twelve people, two are ex-girlfriends Sinitta and Mezhgan Hussainty who seem to get along famously. A staff of fourteen is employed to take care of the vacationers.
According to CharterWorld.Com:
The motor yacht SLIPSTREAM is a superyacht of noteworthy proportions. This 60 m (197 ft) luxury yacht was the work of at Cmn Yachts (Cmn Group) in 2009. Superyacht SLIPSTREAM is a superb yacht that is able to sleep a total of 12 guests on board and has a total of 14 crew. The naval architecture office whom authored the design work with respect to the yacht was Cmn and Andrew Winch. Andrew Winch was also the one who saw out her interior design.
The yacht offers over 500 sqm of living areas and 200 sqm of outdoor decks and is the largest motor yacht ever launched by CMN shipyard (France), and the second unit of a new line of Motor-Yachts developed by the shipyard in cooperation with Andrew Winch Designs. SLIPSTREAM has a dramatic appearance with her black hull and her metallic-grey superstructure. The yacht is finished in a neo-Art Deco style combining dark ebony joinery and red leather panelling.
There is no need for Simon or his guests to go to shore, because the yacht has every amenity on board. As for guests, he footed the £22,000 bill for business class flights to get everyone to the island paradise, while his mom is staying in a nearby £2,000 a night hotel suite.
Don’t be concerned for poor Simon and his expenses. He’ll be able to swing the three-week holiday on his upwards of £225 million personal worth.
Oh those long cold winter doldrums! Some people just know how to make them completely go away.
