Whether in the air or on water, the more luxurious ways to travel allow these high-power influential figures not only to travel in class, but to keep up with their busy schedules, like making it on time to meetings, social gatherings, and parties. As they say ‘time is money,’ and these people have the money to pay for time. So let’s see how these celebrities choose to get around the world.
John Travolta – Boeing 707, Estimated $4.5 Million
The star of “Saturday Night Fever” and “Grease”, John Travolta, is a sucker for aviation. He loves airplanes so much that he had a private airport built in his $12 million home in Florida. He has a pilot’s license which allows him to fly any of his 4 airplanes. That is one expensive collection well worth over $50 million.
But for the highly successful actor who has a net worth of $170 million, the hobby is not a burden on his bank account. John donated this plane, the Boeing 707 to the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society. We love John not only for his talent but also for all of the charity work that he does.
BONO – Kingdom Come, Estimated $22 Million
The lead rock singer of U2 and one of the most influential and wealthy musicians in the world knows a thing or two about comfort. With a net worth of over $900, we are sure that BONO isn’t paying much attention to price tags.
When the winner of 22 Grammy Awards was in the market for a yacht, he chose a 198-foot-long “Kingdom Come” bearing more of a luxury hotel look than that of a ship. The yacht includes a master suite, a huge deck, a marble bathroom, a hot tub, and gold-plated furniture. Why sail in anything but the best when you’re one of the best?
Harrison Ford – Cessna 680 Sovereign, Estimated $18 Million
Harrison Ford is another star with a pilot’s license and has been flying since his days in Star Wars. He has more airplanes than days of the week, 8 to be exact, both airplanes and helicopters.
What we love about Harrison is that he sometimes helps with search and rescue missions when needed. We love to hear stars using their wealth for the good of the public. Unfortunately, Harrison has gotten into multiple accidents, so we sure hope that he has a will and life insurance because flying comes with quite a risk.
Celine Dion – Bombardier Global Express, Estimated $42 Million
Canada-born singer Celine Dion likes deluxe things. She’s got a very impressive $65 Million home and to go along with that, a $42 million luxury jet. When you got it flaunt it, and Celine has got it. Millions of it. Her jet is decked out in complete leather interior, with 14 passenger seats for her family and friends and a kitchen where her personal chef prepares her whatever floats her boat, (or jet). We wonder if she gives her passengers private concerts, and if so, does she customize the language?
Celine can sing in French, English, Spanish, Italian, German, Latin, Japanese, and Mandarin Chinese. Most people would never dare to even dream of having a jet, it’s a cost that will set you back $3 million every year just by its maintenance fees. For one of the best-selling artists of all time though, it probably barely moves her $800 million bank account.
Selena Gomez – Bombardier Challenger 300, Estimated $250K Per Month
Texas-born singer and actress Selena Gomez may be young but as one of the biggest names in Hollywood right now, her bank account is big. From her days as a budding actress in Barney to testing her wizardly powers in Wizards of Waverly Place, Selena has blossomed into a beautiful young woman and an award-winning singer.
It is not known whether she owns a private jet, but rumors quickly swept social media after she shared some pictures on Instagram of her enjoying an extravagant private jet. Selena’s wealth and success have only been on the rise, so we imagine that if the singer decides to purchase a private jet, then nothing is too far out of reach. And we are sure that her financial advisor would approve of the star’s decision.
Matthew McConaughey – Bombardier Global 7000, Estimated $72.8 Million
Another star born and raised in Texas, Matthew McConaughey has been one of the biggest actors in Hollywood since starring in his breakthrough role in Dazed and Confused. The actor, producer, model, writer, and director has had quite a career, and as a show of his hard work, he has a net worth of $95 million
So no loan from the bank was required for this Golden-Globe-winning actor to go ahead and purchase a spanking new private jet. He went with the Bombardier Global 7000 which cost a whopping $72.8 million! His private jet is the longest and largest business jet ever made that has a master suite, kitchen, and much more.
Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes – Utopia III, Estimated $7 Million
Back when they were an item, the Hollywood duo Jamie Fox and Katie Holmes, have not been so camera-shy as they've been in the previous years in their relationship. So much so that they weren't afraid to display their affection toward one another on their $7 million super-yacht. Kind of hard to hide from the paparazzi's lens like that.
Katie had just finished the filming of her latest movie The Secret when they decided to vacay in their luxury yacht off the coast of Miami. Sadly, the two are no longer together. We wonder what they decided to do with the fancy vessel.
Lady Gaga – Boeing 757, Estimated $80 Million
She may be quirky and have outrageous outfits, but nobody can deny her artistic and singing talent. Besides spending her time designing crazy outfits and taking the world by storm with her powerful voice and lyrics, she also loves being in the air.
She purchased a business jet Boeing 757 for $80 million. We just hope she has a good insurance.
Bill Gates – Bombardier BD-700 Global Express, Estimated $40 Million
It is no surprise that business magnate and founder of Microsoft Corporation, Bill Gates, has the most advanced jet on our list. It isn’t the most expensive, but it is complete with all the gadgets and goodies that any tech geek would drool over.
The jet has performance-enhancing systems, touch screens, and wireless internet. We also wouldn’t be surprised to find gadgets in the plane that aren’t yet available to the public. To somebody who isn’t a billionaire, $40 million might be a bit out of reach, but for a man with a net worth of $89 billion, Gates could keep buying planes on a yearly basis without noticing the decrease in his bank.
Beyonce’ & Jay-Z – Galactica Star, Estimated $70 Million
Music power duo with a whole lot of talent, Beyonce and Jay-Z rented the yacht “Galactica Star” and fell in love with all 213 feet of the vessel. And if they fell in love, why wouldn’t they purchase this floating mansion with custom-built VIP guest rooms, a beach club, a swimming pool, a jacuzzi and sauna, a sundeck, and a helipad? And with a separate master suite, it sounds like the most romantic getaway.
This little toy set them back $70 million, plus the cost of insurance and ongoing maintenance fees. But at $900k a week to charter, maybe it’ll be a good investment.
Michael Jordan – Mr. Terrible, Estimated $47 Million
As the greatest player of all time and a man with a net worth of over one billion dollars, Michael Jordan lives a life of complete and utter opulence. Not only does he own a very enormous mansion in Los Angeles, but he also has private jets and this 154-foot yacht. Unsurprisingly, Mr. Terrible is one of the most luxurious yachts that can be found out there on the sea. The yacht can reach a speed of up to 24 knots and has some pretty unique features.
Unsurprisingly, Mr. Terrible is one of the most luxurious yachts that can be found out there on the sea. The yacht can reach a speed of up to 24 knots and has some pretty unique features. For starters, the yacht has an underwater camera, so Jordan and his guests can use it to see what is happening in the waters down below. In addition to that, there is also a bar, an outdoor and indoor dining room with a chandelier, and a beautiful design that was inspired by Art Deco as well as tropical themes. To sum it up, Jordan can afford to pay for the best.
Rihanna – Superyacht – Estimated $250K Per Week
Growing up in Barbados, this pop icon got used to living near the water. While she no longer lives there, she still takes to the water often. Superyachts are the latest trend in the celebrity world.
While they are extremely expensive, if you’ve got the means to afford it, why not? Rihanna loves to try out different luxury yachts, paying anywhere from $125,000 to $350,000 a week. When you’re one of the best-selling music artists of all time, money is of negligible importance.
Leonardo DiCaprio – Topaz, Estimated $1.3 Million Per Week
The “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” star has held quite a few award-winning roles. And with all those awards come fortune and fame. Money clearly isn’t an issue for Leo, seeing as though he is building an eco-resort on his own private island. And if you have an island, then it is absolutely necessary to also have a Superyacht.
The two so clearly go hand in hand. Not only did Leo’s island cost him $1.5 Million, but his superyacht also cost an extra $1.3 million to rent for a week. We are sure that the actor learned how to host great parties from his character, millionaire Jay Gatsby, in The Great Gatsby and there is no better party location than in this 26-cabin yacht complete with three swimming pools, a cinema, and even two helipads.
Angelina Jolie – Cirrus SR22, Estimated $650K
Now we have even more of a reason to love or be extremely jealous of award-winning model slash actress slash humanitarian Angelina Jolie. Jeez is there anything the woman doesn’t do? Not only is she super talented and beautiful, but the three-time Golden Globe winner and mother-of-six is also a fully licensed pilot.
We aren’t sure how she finds the time. She owns a small Cirrus SR22 plane which can carry 4-5 passengers in it. Jolie is featured in the David Attenborough doco “The Queen’s Green Planet.” The documentary shows Jolie co-piloting a small plane over the Namibian desert, which comes after Jolie’s partnership with the Namibian government to create a nursery that will replace dying trees in the area. The story behind her pilot’s license is particularly adorable. Apparently, she promised her son Maddox that she would learn to fly, and in 2004 she got her license. What a star mom.
Roberto Cavalli – Baglietto Yacht, Estimated $40 Million
They say that you can tell a lot about somebody by what their car looks like. If the same is true about yachts, then Italian designer Robert Cavalli is one classy guy. The “Baglietto” yacht is a colorful, custom-built 134-foot-long ship with room for 8 guests and a crew of 4.
An unconventional yacht for unconventional fashion designer Roberto Cavalli. Sounds about right.
Enrique Iglesias – Gulfstream IV, Estimated $3.6 Million
With the five Billboard Hot 100 top five singles, including two number-ones, this musical hottie is still popping out best-selling singles. He is a pop sensation around the globe. Crazy that he is over 40, as he doesn’t look much different from when he first started to produce music.
Enrique is a big fan of planes, so he decided to get his pilot license. When did he get it? He is now certified to fly helicopters and small to medium planes. He owns this business jet, a Gulfstream IV which he purchased for $3.6 million. For a man who probably has many places to be around the world, we are happy that he can do it in a way that is most convenient and fast. We don’t want him to be late to his show!
Tom Hanks – ENIGMA, Estimated $275K Per Week
Award-winner Tom Hanks has starred in some iconic films in very memorable roles. He played Jimmy Dugan in the 1992 comedy movie "A League of Their Own," "Forrest Gump," and "Philadelphia." He is definitely a fan favorite. And how do big stars celebrate wedding anniversaries? They rent a yacht for a romantic getaway.
Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson celebrated their wedding anniversary luxuriously while sailing on a rental yacht named ENIGMA. The two have been married since 1988 and have two sons together, Chester and Truman. They met on the set of the TV comedy "Bosom Buddies," where they worked together from 1980-1982. The lovebirds were reunited in 1985 on the set of Volunteers. Lucky for Rita, the couple can afford to shell out the $275K per week that it costs.
Jerry Seinfeld – Gulfstream V, Estimated $22 million
With a staggering net worth of $860 million, Jerry Seinfeld made big money from his nine-year dedication to Seinfeld in which he played a semi-fictional version of himself. The comedian, actor, producer, and director started his career by doing stand-up comedy in college productions. The now millionaire can afford to live like a king. And live like a king he does.
Seinfeld purchased his private jet, Gulfstream, which is estimated at around $22 million and he was even able to do so without a bank loan. He has been in the comedy business since 1976 and never fails to make us laugh our heads off.
Jackie Chan – Embraer Legacy- Estimated $20 Million
The famed action film Chinese actor holds the Guinness Book of World Records for the Most Stunts Performed by a Living Actor. He has been acting since the 1960s and has become a household name in the Hollywood movie industry.
As a stuntman, it is not surprising that Chan loves to fly. After consulting with his wealth management advisor, he purchased a luxurious private jet, Embraer Legacy. While the insurance for the jet is probably very high, it is clearly no obstacle for Jackie.
Kirsty Bertarelli – Vava II, Estimated $130 Million
Kirsty was crowned Miss UK in 1988. The former beauty queen used to be married to Ernesto Bertarelli, an Italian-born Swiss billionaire and philanthropist. Her now ex-husband is the 6th wealthiest person in the UK, which made Kirsty Britain’s richest woman while the two were still together.
Kirsty can hold her own though, and is a singer, songwriter, and philanthropist. Before the divorce happened, the couple enjoyed sailing in their private yacht Vava II which is worth around $130 million. It is also the 33rd largest in the world.
Simon Cowell – Gulfstream G550, Estimated $61.5 Million
Media mogul who is most recognized as the creator of X-factor in Britain and the overly critical American idol judge likes to live big. This is evident by his $29 million home in Beverly Hills and by his $61.5 million Gulfstream G550.
Apparently, Simon Cowell was once bankrupt. He is far from that now and has amassed a fortune of $550 million. Even with a net worth like that, his private jet seems a bit steep. We hope he is working with a financial advisor so he doesn’t go bankrupt again.
Elvis Presley – Convair 880, Estimated $3 Million
The king of rock and roll, Elvis Presley, purchased this jet for $600,000. The Convair 880 is an American narrow-body business jet constructed by the Convair division of General Dynamics. The jet was designed to compete with the Douglas DC-8 and Boeing 707.
Elvis purchased the jet on April 17, 1975. The king had no problem affording this purchase, as he is regarded as one of the most influential and celebrated musicians of the 20th century. Elvis had the plane decked out in gold-plated bathroom fittings and hired the decorators behind Air Force One. The plane was named Lisa Marie after his daughter and can now be found on display at Graceland.
Justin Bieber – Gulfstream G4, Estimated $60 Million
Justin Bieber is one of the biggest singers in Hollywood. The singer-songwriter will always be known as someone who started a very serious career at a very early age, but he already has a net worth of $200 million.
While he does have a high net worth for somebody his age, it seems like a pretty risky decision to purchase a Gulfstream G4, especially considering the millions he will need to invest in its insurance, storage, and maintenance every year. However, as one of the most sought out celebrities by the paparazzi, especially after recently marrying supermodel and daughter of actor Steve Baldwin, Haley Baldwin, we are sure that the pair prefer to fly privately rather than get bombarded in the airport by fans.
Steven Spielberg – Seven Seas, Estimated $184 Million
Oddly enough, after filming Jaws, Spielberg wasn’t deterred from going near the sea. He purchased this 282-foot yacht, but rumor has it that he’s in the market for a bigger one because enough room to accommodate 12 people is still not enough, you know?
We are sure that the new and improved one will also have a helipad, a spa, a gym, a cinema, and an infinity pool! What a cool guy to be friends with!
Tom Cruise – Gulfstream IV, Estimated $36 Million
When you’re as big a star as Tom Cruise, your stardom often takes you to places all over the world. Tom uses this airborne limo, a Gulfstream IV to travel to wherever his career takes him. There is room for 19 other passengers and a crew of 2.
We hope he’s filling the plane with other people, as we’re guessing it might be lonely up there from time to time.
Donald Trump – Boeing 757, Estimated $100 Million
President Donald Trump used this Boeing 757 frequently before taking his place in the White House. We wonder who used the plane while he was on duty.
The plane is more like a house, with room for 43 passengers, a master bedroom, a dining area, a conference room, and a video room. Now that sounds like a comfortable flight! Donald has a real estate company and invests in casinos and hotels so it makes sense for him to have this aircraft. But as president, we guess it’s less in use now.
Floyd “Money” Mayweather – Gulfstream IV, Estimated $40 Million
Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather has an estimated net worth of $700 million to nearly $1 billion. The champ has made a huge income from fights, endorsements, advertisements, and promotions.
So it’s no wonder that he’s able to afford not one, but two private jets. He uses the bigger of the two when he travels with his entourage and the smaller of the two when he travels for business purposes.
Jim Carrey – Gulfstream V, Estimated $59 Million
Jim Carrey, known for his quirkiness and humor, bought a Gulfstream V which cost $60 million.
The Ace-Ventura actor does have a nice net worth of $150 million, but even for him, the price seems a bit steep. He rents it out though for charter services for $8,000 per hour, so perhaps he purchased it as an investment.
Jay-Z – Bombardier Challenger 850, Estimated $40 Million
We’ve already shown you Jay Z’s yacht. As they say, work hard play hard. Jay-Z uses the Bombardier Challenger 850 Learjet more for business purposes like shows and tours.
The jet is equipped with a bedroom, a kitchen, two bathrooms, and a living room. A living room in the sky? That is pretty amazing. We are wondering if Jay-Z can write off the purchase as a business expense.
Larry Page & Sergey Brin – Boeing 767-200, Estimated $40 Million
The founders of Google don’t technically own the Google Jet, but they do own Google itself. The two entrepreneurs bought an old 767 and renovated it for another $10 Million.
It is equipped with 2 staterooms, a dining area, and room for 15 passengers. Apparently, they use it as a party plane, and Sergey Brin has a king-size bed in his room.
Arnold Schwarzenegger – Gulfstream III, Estimated $35 Million
The former actor turned politician bought the Gulfstream III. While serving as the governor of California, he often had to commute between LA and Sacramento.
With enough cash to last a lifetime, Arnold refused his paycheck as governor which was thoughtful on his end but unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to save the state from bankruptcy.
Tracy McGrady – Falcon 2000, Estimated $27 Million
Tracy McGrady is an American retired professional basketball player. While the athlete did make a nice net worth of $70 million from the sport, it doesn’t seem for a private jet plane.
Perhaps the athlete purchased the jet more as an investment with plans to lease it out. He was the first NBA player to buy a jet and since then, others have followed suit.
Billy Joel – Vendetta, Estimated $1.2 Million
Billy Joel has a passion for music and a passion for boats. Previously, he owned five boats. At the moment, he just held on to his favorite, the “Vendetta.”
Vendetta is a 57-foot-long yacht. It’s completely decked out in all Billy’s essentials. And for a price of $1.2 million, it didn’t break Billy’s bank account or require him a bank loan.
Gisele Bundchen & Tom Brady – Gulfstream G550, Estimated $50 Million
Before their highly-publicized breakup, Brazilian bombshell Gisele Bundchen and Football star Tom Brady often had to jet set around the world together. So what better way to do that than in their own private jet?
They chose a Gulfstream G550 with a shiny black exterior and it looks very sleek. They didn't have to worry about the inconvenience of commercial flights and have privacy at their fingertips. Traveling in style was just a plus.
Peter Jackson – Gulfstream G550, Estimated $68 Million
Peter Jackson made millions from his work as the director of the Lord of the Rings & Hobbit. The movies required him to constantly be on the go, traveling back and forth on a regular basis from Los Angeles to New Zealand.
To make his life simpler, he purchased a Gulfstream G550 private jet. The plane can carry up to 19 passengers or 8 if they’ll be sleeping. To make the most of his time up in the air, his plane is equipped with a small studio so he can get work done during his trips.
Giorgio Armani – Main, Estimated $60 Million
The fashion icon Giorgio Armani’s yacht is the definition of style, which is no surprise. His yacht screams elegance; 210 feet long, it has a gym and a cinema and can host up to 12 of Giorgio’s distinguished guests.
He purchased the baby for $60 million which would break the bank of any normal person. But Giorgio is no “normal” person and has a net worth of $8 billion. So, we are sure that his bank account is doing just fine.
Phil Mickelson – Gulfstream V, Estimated $60 Million
Like many other golfers of his stature, Phil Mickelson leads a busy life; a life which brings him to compete in tournaments all over the world.
In order to make it on time to all of the tournaments, and keep his net worth on the rise, Phil purchased a Gulfstream V. The jet can carry up to 14 passengers, has internet access, a TV, and a media player. After all, if you don’t live like a king with all that money, what’s the point?
Mark Cuban – Gulfstream V, Estimated $40 Million
When you’re a high-class businessman like Mark Cuban, time is of the utmost importance. With the immediate stock trading, and all the Dallas Mavericks games he must attend, Mark prioritizes convenient travel.
The $40 million Gulfstream he purchased was a great investment. He has created an impressive business empire through clever deals while never failing to give to charity or help start businesses along the way.
Seth MacFarlane – Gulfstream, Estimated $50 Million
Seth MacFarlane, the creator of Family Guy, receives frequent criticism that his series is solely for college kids who smoke marijuana. However, nobody can argue with the show’s success.
His show has seen success since its very beginning in 1999 and we can’t imagine that he’ll go bankrupt anytime soon. We imagine that he has a lot of places to be, so he purchased a Gulfstream private jet to get there on time and like a star.
THE EDGE – The Cyan, Estimated $12 Million
This U2 member used the money made by the band’s music to purchase a yacht. Technically speaking, he purchased a superyacht. Better known as The Edge, he bought “The Cyan,” and can sail around with up to 12 guests.
The yacht is equipped with 6 cabins, a gym, a media center, a jacuzzi, and anything else that you would expect to find in the most luxurious of yachts. David Evans not only enjoys the yacht himself but also rents it out to charter trips for only $192,000. So, if you’re looking for a nice getaway, you should call him.
Magic Johnson – Gulfstream G-III, Estimated $40 Million
One of the biggest NBA athletes of all times, Magic Johnson retired from the Lakers in 1992 and later moved on to exercise his business side. He purchased this private jet to allow him to travel in comfort and opulence.
While he had to shell out $40 million for it, with his party days in the past, Johnson uses the plane more like a traveling office than anything else.
Neymar – Cessna 680, Estimated $10 Million
The famous soccer star Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior purchased a Cessna 680 before an investigation into allegations of tax evasion had his assets frozen.
Apparently, he had to take out a mortgage and still purchased another plane (the same model) to use when the first wasn’t available. Or perhaps it was really for him to make his getaway for failing to pay taxes… the world will never know.
Sergio Garcia – Hawker 850, Estimated $16 Million
Another golfer on the list who made good money by playing the sport, Sergio Garcia has accumulated quite a net worth of $70 million. While he might not be at Tiger Wood’s level, he is still pretty talented and has made a name for himself.
Plus, he has a private jet of his own that can carry up to 7 more people. We are reassured to know that he has an easy way to travel and can make it to all his matches, stress-free. And thanks to the custom suite installed, he arrives fresh and clean for his matches.
Diane von Fürstenberg – Eos, Estimated $100 Million
This elegant three-masted lavish sailing vessel is very fitting for its fashionista owner, fashion designer Diane Von Furstenburg.
It is beautiful, expensive, and grandiose, much like Diane’s first husband, billionaire Barry Diller. The ship has room for 16 guests with a 21-member crew ready to serve them. We wonder who she chooses to take along.
Tiger Woods – Privacy Yacht, Estimated $20 Million
His ex-wife got a lot of his money in the divorce settlement, $100 million to be exact. Fortunately, it didn’t do too much damage to his bank account and the most successful pro-golfer in the world still has $740 million.
After recovering from his very public divorce, Woods named his yacht “Privacy” and ensured that in his yacht, he would have total privacy. The boat has space for up to 21 guests, a gym, a theater, a jacuzzi, and a lounge bar. And for fun, there are jetskies and water sports equipment.
DJ Khaled – Gulfstream G2, Estimated $38K Per Round Trip
Considering the $10 million home that he lives in, it is no surprise that DJ Khaled also owns a private jet. He is known for living opulently and for liking nice things.
His son, Asahd definitely gets to reap the benefits of his father. The two love to travel in style. Plus, they rent out their jet for a price tag of $38,000.
Dave Coulier – Beechcraft Bonanza B35, Estimated $815K
Most recognized for playing Joey Gladstone on the ABC sitcom Full House, Dave Coulier has a successful career as an actor, voice actor, stand-up comedian, impressionist, and television host.
He not only owns this Beechcraft Bonanza B35 luxury jet, but he is also capable of flying it. He started flying planes at the age of 15, younger than most people even start driving. He made it official with a pilot’s license at 20 years old.
Michael Schumacher – Falcon 200, $22 Million
Regarded as one of the greatest Formula One drivers ever, Michael Schumacher has 7 World Championships under his belt as well as a net worth of $800 million.
It’s safe to say that he never has to work another day in his life. And we are sure that he enjoys some of his free time on his luxury private jet, the Falcon 200, which is worth around $22 million.
Bella Hadid – JetLux, Estimated $100K Per Trip
Bella Hadid, daughter to former model Yolanda Hadid and sister of Gigi Hadid is a Hollywood It Girl. This five-foot-nine young model posts many pictures in front of luxury jets.
Many of her trips are sponsored, and just posting a picture on social media apparently scores her $100,000. It’s no wonder that she has a net worth of $12 million.
Kris Jenner – O’Ceanos, Estimated $185K Per Week
The world knows that the Kardashians like to live big. Anybody who’s watched their reality TV series, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" has seen that the family lives in an extravagant home and takes five-star vacations.
And they learned it all from their queen and mother of the clan, Kris Jenner. She rented this 162-foot Superyacht during a vacation in Greece, which apparently costs a whopping $185,000 to rent for one week.
Tim McGraw – Cirrus SR22, Estimated $650K
Tim McGraw is a country singer, songwriter, and actor who has released 15 studio albums, 10 of them making it to the number-one spot on the Top Country Albums chart. The singer has made millions throughout his career.
So, it wasn’t a problem for him to purchase his own customized Cirrus SR22 for $650,000. His aircraft wouldn’t be complete with embroidered seats and has a sticker with the name on its window in honor of his equally talented country singer wife, Faith Hill. Not only is Tim a passenger in his plane, but he is also sometimes the pilot. Tim really loves being up in the air, as it allows him free time away from his music and his career.
Dr.Dre – Naia, Estimated $580K Per Week
Dr. Dre is a rapper, producer, and entrepreneur. He has produced albums and overseen the careers of many other rappers you probably know; Eminem, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, and a bunch more. Besides working with top-notch rappers, he is the founder and CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics. So, you might expect him to have a huge bank account, and that he does.
With a net worth of $880 million, this six-time Grammy Award recipient has earned the right to live opulently. Every time he takes a vacation, he rents the 241-foot Superyacht called Naia. It is the definition of luxury, with a VIP suite and entertainment facilities, and costs him $580,000 per week. We are sure that his wife, Nicole young, and their two children also come along.
Rihanna – Boeing 777, Estimated $300 Million
While Rihanna can definitely afford to buy her own plane, she prefers to rent one. She rented this Boeing 777 when she went on tour, in order to have a more convenient (and super fly) way to travel between cities
The tour, like her career, was a major success, and she surely had no regrets about renting the plane and investing the money.
Michael Jordan – Gulfstream IV, Estimated $35 Million
As the greatest basketball player of all time, Michael Jordan is worth almost $2 billion. So, we are sure that purchasing a luxury plane was no hurdle for the athlete. His luxury plane is yet another example that Jordan is a superstar in every sense of the word.
If you have seen pictures of Michael Jordan’s home, you would know that he has his jersey number, 23, on the outside of the gate. On his Caroline Blue colored jet, he has his famous “Jumpman” logo written across.
Justin Bieber – Pearl Yacht, Estimated $450K Per Week
Justin Bieber may be young, but his bank account is much larger than most people 20 years his senior.
He is notorious for renting out yachts and hosting big parties. To rent out such luxury yachts costs about $450,000 a week to party nonstop in style, beauty, and privacy.
Steven Spielberg – Bombardier Global Express XRS, Estimated $42 Million
Steven Spielberg is the biggest movie director in Hollywood. He has made it a few times on this list, due to his ownership of multiple travel vessels. He loves traveling in his comfortable luxury long-range jet.
While the price tag of $42 million is a purchase that is too far out of reach for most of us to even dream, for this billion-dollar director, it was nothing compared to his $3.7 billion net worth.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson – Gulfstream G650, Estimated $65 Million
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson went from being bankrupt to having a net worth of $220 million. A true ‘rags to riches’ story like some other stars we’ve seen on the list, he’s come very far from those days and is now one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood.
To bask in his wealth, he purchased for himself a Gulfstream G650 that is estimated at around $65 million. It must be nice to afford such luxuries.
James Packer – Arctic P, Estimated $10 Million Per Year
James Parker is singing sensation Mariah Carey’s ex-fiancé. He is also an Australian Billionaire who has a passion for investing in luxury properties.
This luxury yacht, the Arctic P, has its own beach club, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and entertainment hub. We could only dream of spending one day on it.
Dennis Quaid – Cessna Citation II, Estimated $600K
Dennis Quaid is known for his variety of dramatic and comedic roles and first gained widespread recognition in the 1980s. He got his pilot’s license decades years ago and has since spent much of his time up in the air. He owns two planes, including this Cessna 421 twin-engine and Cessna Citation II.

Vince McMahon – Bombardier Global 5000, Estimated $55 Million

Tyga – Dassault Falcon 50, Estimated $22 Million
We aren’t really sure how American rapper Tyga could afford himself such a luxury. While the rapper is worth $2 million, that is hardly enough to afford the $22 million price tag on the Dassault Falcon 50.
Tyga loves to live lavishly, whether he can afford the high price or not. He drives nice cars and hosts the best parties. We’re only wondering how he could pay for it all!
Gwyneth Paltrow – SILOLONA, Estimated $108K Per Week
The beautiful actress rents out this 164-foot custom-built yacht, and she’s not the only one. The yacht was manufactured by Konjo Boatbuilders. The luxurious exterior and interior styling were designed by Kasten Marine Design who also did the yacht’s engineering.

The retired soccer legend and former Spice Girls singer owns this business jet, the Bombardier Challenger 600 which is part of the Challenger family along with a few other business jets manufactured by Canadair and by Bombardier Aerospace.

The Boeing 757 is the most loved business jet by celebrities, including Bruce Dickinson. The frontman of the heavy metal band Iron Maiden Bruce loves this mid-size, narrow-body airliner.

Jimmy Buffett – Grumman HU-16 Albatross, Estimated $62K
The Grumman HU-16 Albatross, a large twin-radial amphibious flying boat, and Hemisphere Dancer once made headlines. There is no wonder why legendary singer and songwriter, the late Jimmy Buffet, decided to purchase this aircraft due to its awesome features.
However, the singer once needed a criminal attorney, since Jamaican police shot at the Grumman HU-16 based on the suspicion that the singer was transporting something illegal.
Jerry Bruckheimer – Gulfstream IV, Estimated $32 Million
Film director and television producer Jerry Bruckheimer produced the iconic movie "Top Gun" and the TV series "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation." Jerry has had a lot of success, and at one point in the early 2000’s he had ten of his shows airing on TV simultaneously.
With all of his success, he was able to buy himself a Gulfstream IV for $32 million. We are more than positive that he doesn’t need a credit repair.

Roberto Cavalli is an Italian fashion designer and inventor who is famous for exotic prints and for bringing the sand-blasted look to jeans. With a net worth of $500 million, he can afford to buy nice things. He purchased the Aerospatiale AS 350 Helicopter for about $500K. It is a single-engine light utility helicopter manufactured in France by Aerospatiale and Eurocopter.
The fashion designer chose to invest money in this two-engine helicopter version which is marketed in North America as the TwinStar. Roberto loved the helicopter right away and we can see him often enjoying his most recent flying machine.
Richard Branson – Falcon 900EX, Estimated $43.3 Million
Richard is the founder and CEO of Virgin Group Ltd. His organization owns over 400 companies. Besides the time that Richard devotes to his business, philanthropy, and investments, he also spends time in aircraft, which makes sense considering that he is one of the companies he owns Virgin Atlantic airline.
One of his favorite planes in his aircraft collection is the Falcon 900EX. Richard has a net worth of $5.1 billion so the $43.3 million price tag is a small one to pay.
Suri Cruise – Gulfstream IV, Estimated $7 Million
While the ex-couple Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise have kept Suri’s life very private, she nonetheless became a very famous kid after she was born. While we don’t know so much about her, one thing is for certain; this girl has it real good.
Besides having a killer wardrobe, Suri also has a Gulfstream IV private jet so that she can travel in style while dressing in style.
Sir Philip Green – Lionheart, Estimated $150 Million
The British tycoon is the head of Topshop and the chairman of Arcadia Group, a retail company that includes several chains like Top Shop, and Top Man, amongst others. Green takes luxury living to a whole new level and is known to throw some of the most insane parties like hiring Destiny’s Child to perform at his son’s Bar Mitzvah and bringing Rihanna to perform at his daughter and nephew’s joint birthday party.
We wouldn’t mind being a guest at one of his birthday parties, especially if they look like his 50th birthday celebration in which he flew 200 guests in a chartered airbus to celebrate at a hotel in Cyprus for a three-day toga party. As you would expect, the business mogul rides in top style, and he can do it all without breaking the bank. He purchased this mega yacht, “Lionheart “ for $150 million.

David Geffen – Rising Sun, Estimated $200 Million
American business magnate and producer David Geffen has no problem affording what he wants. This $6.5 billion businessman has an impressive art collection that is worth millions.
We trust that he used what he knows about art when he purchased a 454-foot-long megayacht, named Rising Sun, that is worth around $200 million. We are guessing that price didn’t set him back too much and he’s still able to add to his collection.
Jennifer Lopez – Utopia III, Estimated $10.5 Million
We love seeing how stars take a break from work, especially when it involves their children. We were very happy to see Jennifer Lopez and her beautiful twins Max and Emme enjoying some time together in Miami aboard the Utopia III luxury yacht. J-Lo chose her best friends, children, and nannies to spend time with her aboard the luxury ship. They enjoyed some poolside refreshments and food together.
And of course, J-Lo was looking better than ever while rocking her curves in a blue bikini. The paparazzi didn’t miss a beat and were taking it all in from a distance.
John Legend – Boeing 757, Estimated $120K A Trip
Singer John Legend, and might we say quite the legend, not only treats his wife Chrissy Teigen to around-the-world trips in private planes. In 2015, John chose 50 of his biggest fans to enjoy the “The Legend Experience.”
He gave everybody a private jet tour of 11 days around the world along with himself inside the Four Seasons private Jet. That is one awesome way to enjoy luxury around the world while meeting your favorite star. We are sure that the experience was unforgettable.
Bruno Mars – Gulfstream G550, Estimated $42 Million
Bruno Mars has developed quite the bank account thanks to the hits he keeps popping out. Topping the charts time after time, Bruno has sold over 130 million records worldwide and has produced seven number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 since his career launched in 2010.
He attained his first five faster than any male artist since Elvis Presley. So, it’s no surprise that the 24k Magic singer was able to shell out some serious bucks on a private jet. We just hope that he consulted with a financial advisor because, with a net worth of $105 million, this $42-million private jet seems a bit steep. That said, we are sure that Bruno is making the most of the jet and enjoying it. And, we are positive that the eleven-time Grammy winner still has plenty of his career left.
Soulja Boy – Gulfstream G550 Business, Estimated $55 Million
Soulja Boy was born as rapper DeAndrea Cortez. We are sure that when he was younger, he could never have imagined in his wildest dreams that he would be purchasing for his 21st birthday, a private jet for $55 million!
He went with the luxurious G550 Business, a very baller move if we say so ourselves. Not only that, but he had the jet customized to his liking, to include a high-end bar, cinema, and bed. Sounds like he’s making his dreams come true. We just don’t know how he afforded that price tag with a net worth of $30 million!
Nina Dobrev – L’ALBATROS, Estimated $100K Per Week
Nina made quite the name for herself (and fortune) after playing the damsel in distress in "The Vampire Diaries." Clearly, money is not much of a problem for the actress, as she posted a picture on Instagram of her and friends basking in the sun aboard the St.Tropez sunshine.
The vacation on the private yacht cost her $ 100K a week. She also posted other photos, and we must admit, we’re quite envious. The photos showed her on jet skis, living it up, and sliding down backward on a waterslide from the 13-foot yacht. We sure hope that the star talked with her financial advisor before paying for the vacation.
Neymar – Azimut 78, Estimated $15 Million
Brazilian soccer star Neymar knows how to enjoy the money that he makes from endorsements and his soccer salary. Recently, he moved to Paris Saint-Germain for a record-breaking transfer fee that completely shook the world of football. After consulting with his financial advisor, the star purchased a second-hand Italian yacht for a whopping $15 million.
We just hope that he’s aware of the expensive maintenance fees because those can be pretty taxing on one’s bank account. They can cost more than $500K, so we sure hope that his weekly salary can afford such frivolous expenses.
Cristiano Ronaldo – Aya London,$54K Per Month
Cristiano Ronaldo is a Portuguese professional football player who is often regarded as the best player in the world and one of the best of all time. He is a prolific goalscorer who recently scored another Ballon d’Or award. He was ranked the highest-paid athlete in 2016 and 2017 and has made a staggering $450 million throughout his career.
While money is of no stress to him, he did get in trouble with the law for evading taxes and had to pay a hefty fine. Regardless, Cristiano is still enjoying with his girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, and their children. For $54K per month, they can take to the seas on their Aya London Yacht and spend time in privacy, basking in the sun. With Ronaldo’s bank account, he can clearly enjoy what he wants and live a life of luxury.
Michael Bloomberg – Mooney Bravo, Estimated $169K
While Michael Bloomberg is the 11th richest person in the world, that doesn’t change the humble guy that he is. He is part of The Giving Pledge, whereby billionaires pledge to give away at least half of their wealth. Unlike many other stars on this list, he owns a pretty simple $169K Mooney Bravo. While he does have other aircraft, he loves this one the most. And the former Mayor of New York City is a certified commercial pilot himself.
When he’s not in the air, Bloomberg is a dedicated environmentalist and philanthropist. While a lot of us struggle to make ends meet every month, others like Bloomberg have 13 properties around the world and donate half of their money to charity.
Nicolas Cage – Gulfstream G550, Estimated $30 Million
Born as Nicolas Coppola, the actor, director, and producer has had a long career that spans from 1982. He has seen many box office successes and has won numerous awards throughout his career.
Nicolas purchased for himself a lavish Gulfstream G550 in order to make his career a little less hectic. The jet cost him a whopping $30 million! It can cross 7,301 nautical miles in 14 hours, allowing the actor to keep up with his busy schedule. The interior is also impressive so we can understand why the jet cost so much money. We hope this means that Nicolas has made it through his financial troubles.
Joyce Meyer – Gulfstream G-IV, Estimated $10 Million
Joyce Meyer is a Christian Charismatic author and speaker who encourages others to adopt the Christian religion. Meyer has had quite a successful career and reaps the benefits of her popularity by living a very luxurious life. But she is often the subject of criticism due to her excessive lifestyle, i.e. owning several homes around the world and a private jet.
Her private jet allows her to travel all around the world for her tours and humanitarian projects, so we support that cause. And what better way to get from continent to continent so that she can easily spread Christianity wherever she goes? A Gulfstream G-IV but of course! But with no mortgage debts, it has led to investigations into her organization of tax-exempt.
Wayne Huizenga – de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter, Estimated $7 Million

He owned this $7-million aircraft, de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter, a purchase which clearly didn’t hurt his nearly $3 billion bank account.
Andrey Melnichenko – “A” Estimated $300 Million
Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko is the proud owner of the 11th-largest yacht in the world. The 46-year-old has a net worth of $13.2 billion, so it’s no surprise that he can afford to have a 390-foot-long yacht worth $300 million! Yes, you read that correctly.
His hi-tech yacht, which is also known as A is a luxury motor yacht which was designed by Philippe Starck and engineered by naval architect Martin Francis. A can accommodate 14 guests in its 7 guest cabins and is designed for 35 crew members on board. It is decorated, equipped, and staffed to the utmost luxurious standard. Mirrored surfaces are featured throughout the interior, and there is even a secret room hidden behind mirrored panels. There is also Baccarat crystal used for the glassware, tables, and furniture. Plus the yacht has hosted some of the best of the best of Hollywood, but we won’t get into the names.
James Packer – Sikorsky S-76, Estimated $13 Million
James Packer is the son of media mogul Kerry Packer. He inherited control of the family company, Consolidated Press Holdings Limited, with investments in Crown Resorts and other companies.
The Australian-born investor purchased his own luxury chopper Sikorsky S-76. The chopper is an incredible feat of engineering, with twin turboshaft engines and a retractable landing gear. It must be nice to travel in the skies and avoid all of the traffic down below. But with a net worth of $5.5 billion, James Packer can afford most things we cannot. Sigh...
Kevin Hart – Hawker 400XP, Estimated $2.5 Million
Comedian Kevin Hart is in high demand and his comedic presence is wanted in many locations. In order to satisfy everybody’s needs, Kevin bought a luxury jet, the Hawker 400XP, which cost him a measly $2.5 million. And when he wants to take the family on vacation, he rents a larger luxury jet that has a longer flight range.
With a net worth of $120 million and a good credit score, we are sure that the purchase didn’t even leave a mark.
Britney Spears – Gulfstream G550, Estimated $55 Million
The queen of pop of the early 2000s, Britney Spears, has seen her fair share of troubles in recent years. But all of that hasn’t stopped Britney from being who she truly is; a complete star.
With a net worth big enough to knock all the best baseball players out of the park, Britney continues to accumulate wealth, with record sales and sold-out tours, plus her fragrance and lingerie line. With all that work and high demand, it’s imperative that Britney has an easy and comfortable way to get around. So, the Grammy award winner purchased herself a Gulfstream G550 luxury jet for $55 million. We are sure that her two boys think that their mom is super cool.
Michelle Rodriguez – Ecstasea, Estimated $500K Per Week
Starring in The Fast & Furious franchise made Michelle Rodriguez super-rich. It seems that Michelle has gotten quite used to the life of the rich and famous as she’s been spotted multiple times vacationing aboard the 282-foot yacht Ecstasea which costs her $500K a week to rent.
The star, who is worth $30 million can fortunately afford such luxuries. And luxuries they are, with a full massage room and spa treatment, a huge gym, jetskies, and two helipads. She’s got it good.
Heidi Klum – Nirvana, Estimated $100K Per Day
Supermodel and former wife of the musician Seal, Heidi Klum was spotted with her then-boyfriend Vito Schnabel enjoying a romantic getaway on the Nirvana. The two looked super in love and what better way to celebrate love than being in the middle of the stunning St. Tropez on a very luxurious ship?
Unfortunately, the two have since broken up. We just hope that Heidi consulted with her financial advisor before the trip, as that is one hefty cost! Regardless of the money, it seems like the two had a great time together and we wonder what caused their break up. Plus, we really hope that their bank accounts are doing ok!
Michael Dorn – North American Sabreliner, Estimated $250K
Michael Dorf started as Worf, the Klingon in more than 40 Star Trek projects on television and film. After all that hard work he put in, he’s spending his retirement simply relishing in the money he made. And one of the ways he likes to enjoy post-retirement is up in the skies.
He’s a certified pilot and owner of a T-33 Shooting Star, an F-86 Sabre, and a North American Sabreliner. It seems like he saved up some money in his Star Trek days to be able to afford such a luxury!
Dr. Dre – Gulfstream V, Estimated $36 Million
Dr. Dre recently sold his company Beats to Apple for $3.2 Million. With that sale, he became the 3rd richest hip-hop artist with a net worth of more than $740 Million.
With a net worth like that, he was able to purchase his $36 million private jet like other people purchase a car. Now, Dr. Dre can travel and comfort and in style around the world with family and friends. And we are sure that he has a huge life insurance.
Colin Firth – Sunliner Yacht, $57K per Week
Actor Colin Firth has had quite a successful career since he first started acting in the 80s. His films have made more than $3 billion from 42 releases worldwide. It’s not astonishing that the talented star has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
With all that success, Colin was able to take to the seas on the Sunliner Yacht while on his way to the Cannes Film Festival. It cost him $57K per week. We are sure that the cost didn’t even budge him!
Betsy DeVos – SeaQuest, Estimated $40 Million
Being a member of President Trump’s cabinet is an honor. We wonder if the acceptance is based on being very rich and successful. Betsy DeVos, who has been serving as the 11th and current United States Secretary of Education since 2017, owns this 153-foot luxury yacht SeaQuest.
She purchased this bad boy for a mouth-dropping cost of $40 Million. We can assume that the politician has a bank account to afford such a luxury.
Pierce Brosnan – D’ARTAGNAN, Estimated $25K Per Week
Pierce is most prominent for his role as James Bond. Now that he is retired, he gets to use his hard-earned money for pure enjoyment purposes. He was seen on a romantic getaway with his wife Keely Shay Smith on two luxury yachts - the 65.75-foot motor yacht, D’Artagnan, and the 132.76-foot sailing yacht Solaris.
While it costs $25K a week, we don’t think that it causes any financial strain for Pierce Brosnan.
Lindsay Lohan – Oasi Estimated $400K Per Week
The actress who was made famous by playing twins in The Parent Trap, has been notorious in the last few years as a Hollywood party girl. That reputation has often gotten her into trouble with the law. While she seems to have calmed down in recent years, she nonetheless still likes to have fun and was recently seen renting this super luxurious 193-foot Oasis in Cannes that costs $400K a week.
We aren’t really sure how she can afford such a luxury, as last we knew, her net worth dwindled to $500K. Hopefully, she consulted with a financial advisor and isn’t accumulating loans.
Demi Lovato & Nick Jonas – Bombardier Challenger 300, Estimated $26 Million
While on their Honda Civic tour: Future Now, the two singers were spoiled by NetJets with an exclusive travel feature using their Bombardier challenge to be used during their tour.
How cool it must have been for the two to not have to spend any money from their own pockets but get treated with the ultimate luxurious facilities. We probably would also fall in love with the queen-sized bed featured in these planes.
David Guetta – Cessna 525B Citation CJ3, Estimated $8 Million
One of the most famous DJs in the world, especially in the House music scene, David Guetta, has seen quite an impressive career. He has created some talented music and worldwide hits.
With a net worth of $30 million, the DJ can afford some nice things. He purchased his own luxury jet for $8 Million (which seems perhaps a bit high). We hope he spoke to a financial advisor before making the purchase.
Steve Aoki – Raytheon Hawker 800XP, Estimated $13 Million
Steve is yet another major DJ featured on our list, who has a worldwide fanbase of millions. What can we say? DJ’s ride in style. Steve has been popping electro house music hits since the 90s, and has since acquired a net worth of $23 million. The musician has collaborated with the best artists such as will.i.am, Afrojack, LMFAO, Linkin Park, Iggy Azalea, Lil Jon, Laidback Luke, BTS, Louis Tomlinson, Rise Against, Vini Vici, and Fall Out Boy and is known for his remixes of artists such as Kid Cudi.
Thanks to his success, he recently added a Raytheon Hawker 800XP to his assets, a purchase which set him back $13 Million. We just hope that he also has a savings account and isn’t throwing everything away at toys.
Jenny McCarthy & Donnie Wahlberg – JetSmarter, $9K Membership
When you have enough money, as many of the celebrities on our list do, you can afford to use JetSmarter, which is more or less the Uber for planes.
Jetsmarter is the solution for those who don’t want to deal with the annoyances of commercial flights. It can cost up to $9K per flight. Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are ambassadors for the company’s application, getting free jets in return. It must be nice that they save thousands of dollars in their checking accounts!
Timothy Spall – Princess Matilda, Estimated $350K
If you have seen the Harry Potter films, then you surely recognize actor Timothy Spall. Timothy played Peter Pettigrew in the film. In the muggle world, Timothy likes to sail around Britain with his wife aboard the Princess Matilda, which they purchased for about $350,000.
The two are famous for their sailing trips and were featured in 4 BBC series and 2 books. Looks like owning a luxury boat actually ended up making him more money!

If you think you’re having deja vu, you aren’t. Richard Branson has in fact been featured on this list multiple times. He owns multiple modes of transportation one of them being the Necker Belle which has a price tag of $6.9 Million.
As one of the richest men in the UK and a net worth of $5 billion, the owner of Virgin Mobile has no problem affording what he wants. The boat is stunning and we don’t blame him for purchasing it. It has a gorgeous lounge area and suite. We are sure that his financial advisor is calm, as Richard has the means to afford it.
George Clooney – BD-700 Global Express, Estimated $47.7 Million
George Clooney has had a very impressive acting career, evident by both his income and the awards he has won. The actor is the recipient of numerous accolades; three Golden Globe Awards and two Academy Awards. As a very famous celebrity, we are sure that his privacy is important to him.
So he purchased a BD-700 Global Express private jet which cost him an arm and a leg; $47.7 Million. It seems like he just lives and travels in pure luxury, from his luxurious jet to his castle in France. Unbelievable but you better believe!
Larry Ellison – Rising Sun, Estimated $200 Million
The founder of Oracle is one of the richest in the world, with an unfathomable net worth of $28 billion.
He clearly enjoys living a high-quality life, as seen by the custom-made yacht he had built for $200. Also known as the Rising Sun, the Yacht is the 11th biggest in the world. It measures in at 453 feet. It is the best of the best, just for the tech mogul.
Mel Gibson – Gulfstream V, Estimated $40 Million
Director and actor Mel Gibson has made a lot of money throughout his career, and is most recognized for his action hero roles. He purchased the Gulfstream V for $40 Million. It is deemed one of the safest long-distance business aircraft in the world and is able to reach destinations in record time.
Well, with a net worth of $425 million, the Golden Globe winner and 3 time Academy Award winner can afford such luxuries.
Brad Pitt – Supermarine Spitfire, Estimated $3.3 Million
Brad Pitt is one of the hottest actors in Hollywood and the most desirable. With a net worth of $240 million, purchasing this vintage World War II-era Supermarine Spitfire for $3.3 million was trivial.
Now that Brad and Angelina are no longer together, however, we do wonder who Brad is choosing to bring along.
Nicole Kidman – Sunseeker Manhattan 74, Estimated $2.5 Million
Australian actress Nicole Kidman has made a lot of money throughout her successful career. Her career has made it possible to purchase a private yacht, “Hokulani,” so that the star can travel in utmost opulence.
With a master bedroom, cabins for up to 10 passengers, a swim platform, and a high-quality entertainment system, it’s no wonder that it had a price tag of $2.5 Million. For the actress who has a net worth of $75 million, the yacht put no major dent on her bank account.
Tiger Woods – Gulfstream G550, Estimated $53.5 Million
Tiger Woods is recognized as the greatest golfer of all time. Despite his very public divorce and Tiger having to hand over $100 million in the divorce settlement, he has managed to hold onto his private jet.
The private jet is the most convenient way for Tiger to make it to all his tournaments and promotional events without having to deal with the public. Plus, the $53 Million is one he could easily afford considering that he makes $50-$60 Million a year.
Mariah Carey – Gulfstream, Estimated $40 Million
The Gulfstream is featured numerous times on our list because celebrities can’t get enough of it. When Mariah and Nick Cannon were still married, they often posted adorable pictures of themselves together in the plane.
After their divorce, Mariah dated and got engaged to Australian Billionaire James Packer who probably has many private jets to his name. The two later split and called off the wedding
