DiCaprio is either borrowing or renting Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s 482-foot yacht the Topaz, worth roughly $680 million, reported the Daily Mail. Sheikh Mansour, who had the yacht custom built in 2012, is personally worth a reported $4.9 billion.
At 147-metres, it is the fourth longest yacht ever built and a mere 15-metres shorter than Roman Abramovich’s Eclipse, which currently holds the bragging rights. Custom built by Lurssen Yachts in Bremen ( Germany ). The yacht’s interior has been designed by Terence Disdale and has exterior styling by Tim Heywood Design. The vessel also boasts a weight thought to be in excess of 12,000 tonnes.
The yacht is owned by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emitates and owner of Manchester City FC. The 43-year-old Sheikh, part of the royal family of Abu Dhabi, does not exactly need the money, with a personal wealth estimated at around £2.9 billion and an estimated family fortune of £90 billion. Sheikh Mansour, who is the half-brother of the current president of the UAE, has two wives and five children.
It appears Sheikh Mansour and the Hollywood star has been in contact about the vessel in the past, as this is not the first time Leo has thrown a party on the Topaz.
According to the New York Daily News, the 100 guests and over 80 crew members were ‘sworn to secrecy’ before the party started.
It has not been confirmed whether the Sheikh is joining Leo and his friends in Brazil for the World Cup. Whoever is paying, if Leo or his guests tire of the football there is plenty for them to do on the Topaz.
