STRUTH ! Fit for a tychoon
IN his continuing search for the more weird, whacky and wondrous in the world of travel, DAVID ELLIS says that for something totally different you can now hire Rupert Murdoch's 56m (183-feet) superyacht Rosehearty for the holiday of a lifetime.
Whether Rupert has put his boat on the charter market because of tough economic times or just to help defray its running costs we don't know, but Rosehearty comes complete with accommodation for ten guests in five queen-bed staterooms (each with plasma screen TVs,) and if you're the hirer you'll get the Owner's Suite and therefore the opportunity to sleep in Rupert's king-size bed.
There's also a "technogym" with personal instructor, and deep sea diving gear that'll give you a better view of what's under the sea than your snorkelling mask and breathing tube (and again with instructor, of course.)
A chef will prepare the meals you want (just give him an idea in advance of your likes and dislikes,) and there's a bar (with steward) for any necessary liquids to stop the skin cracking under the Caribbean sun (or wherever else you want the yacht delivered to in America, Alaska or the Mediterranean.)
All this will cost you from just $373,500 a week, and hopefully it includes tips for the nine crew who will look after your every need – although if you can afford the charter price we guess the tips aren't going to worry you.
