Conor McGregor Freaked Out After Seeing One Of The World’s Biggest Yachts In Ibiza
McGregor has done plenty of partying and traveling in the past few weeks, and he recently found himself on a boat in Ibiza with some family and friends. While drifting in the Mediterranian, he encountered a slightly bigger vessel owned by a Russian billionaire that managed to blow him away.
According to the caption on one of the pictures he shared, merely coming across the boat was enough to keep McGregor motivated to keep building his fortune in the hopes that one day he might be able to own a $480 million superyacht:
That was a mad scene. I only posted "race to the next yacht" two days ago and then this one pulls up right out my back garden. The biggest one of all. This is an eye opening level of opulence to witness first hand. To me, it is truly motivating. I'm starting to think I don't have a wealth belly just yet. I'm more just rich fat now. I must keep eating. I wonder if my lunch is ready. Happy Tuesday
McGregor shared plenty of snapshots of the ship, including one of him getting up close and personal to provide some perspective on how huge the boat really is:
The 360 million dollar "sailing yacht A" pulls up out the back garden this morning . "Sailing yacht A" its called. That's how you know the owner doesn't need to give a bollox about anything. Sailing yacht A. Most expensive sailing yacht in the world. 360mill. Owned by a Russian billionaire. Google it. Crazy!
The vessel is owned by Andrey Melnichenko, who creatively dubbed it Sailing Yacht A. If you’re impressed by the pictures, just wait until you hear some of the details. According to Business Insider:
[T]he 142.8-metre vessel… boasts 300 ft masts that are taller than Big Ben, and counts eight decks (connected by a series of lifts), a free-floating spiral staircase, huge swimming pool, and underwater observation pod among its stunning features.
McGregor briefly mentions this in his post, but I think it’s really worth stressing how amazing it is that Melnichenko dropped more than a third of a billion dollars on a boat and decided to call it “Sailing Vessel A.” That’s the kind of guy that names his children “Son 1” or “Daugther 2.” That is truly the sign of a man who gives no bollox.
