SUNSEEKER’S largest ever yacht for Formula One mogul Eddie Jordan has been revealed this weekend at Poole Quay.

The 155 foot yacht, reported to be worth £32 million, was painstakingly moved out of the shed by Sunseeker staff on Saturday and took more than an hour to move the short distance into the yard.

Stewart McIntyre, Managing Director at Sunseeker, told a national publication: “This is an extremely exciting time for Sunseeker as we inch ever closer to the completion of the 155 Yacht.

“This is the biggest project we have ever undertaken and since the announcement of its build it has been the talk of the industry.

“We are incredibly proud of what we have created and look forward to showcasing it to the world.”

The impressive accommodation can cater for 12 guests and 10 crew, and has an on board nightclub, a panoramic viewing area, a dining area, bar and its own garage for jet skis.

The 155 Yacht will soon undergo testing and commission.

It will then be ready to be delivered to its owner in the early spring.

£32 million for a cheap plastic boat. If I had that sort of money to spend I would but a properly built one. There are plenty of yards who will build a proper boat for that money

32 Million for a Boat!
The way this country is, the number of people living hand-to-mouth (or worse) I wouldn't be able to sleep at night after spending that sort of money on a **** boat; just think what that money could do.

Instead of a boat with a night club get really.

yer I agree sounds like some people on here maybe a tad envy. If someone can afford it who are you to say what they spend it on. I bet you play the lottery most months in an attempt to win it rather than earn like he has. If were extremely lucky to win it, would you really hand 32mil over to someone else instead of buying your life long dream?

Just wondering how you accumulate that sort of money by working and that is just his pocket money. I worked solidly for over 50 years and I'm still £32 million short of purchasing a Sunseeker like that.

It's not £32mil, when I worked on it, the cost was Est. £20-25mil. Also it's not Eddie's private boat. His company hires out Sunseeker yachts for corporate event's.

So it's an investment, not out of his own pocket.

How about just appreciating a nice object for what it is?

This argument is null and void. Its the same as me saying, you have a £300 k house in Dorset? Why don't you get a £200k one with the same no of bedrooms and buy a homeless person a £100k one. Or why have a £10k car when you could have a £1k one and stock up the countries food banks with the £9k? Granted some people do live on bare min, but many live all the way to their max. Just like rich people want to do.

It will depreciate 10 million the moment it is handed over.

Then five miliion a year, until it is worth about two million in...say.....2019.

I presume his tax lawyer has it registered as a business expense, to write down the capital depreciation loss against income tax?

It is all a fiddle, but local workers made a wage out of it.

Some pathetic comments above, as usual. What right have we to tell anyone, let a lone Eddie Jordan what he or they can do with their money. Why should anyone offer their own money for any cause such as building a hospital, when our own government will not hand out cash for such projects, but would rather send it abroad for aid to countries who sit on their backsides 24/7. Good on you Eddie, and happy sailings.

That seems like a lot of money for a boat, but it is a superb looking boat. And has employed a lot of local people to build. All those employees are paying tax on earnings instead of being on the dole, all the money they spend is taxed, and is going into our local economy, so the overall boost to the local economy is huge. From me, it a huge thank you to Eddie Jordan for buying British. PS, please show it off to all your friends and get them to buy one too!!!

Well the answer is you have to be cleaver, invest wisely, have wealthy friends and business partners.
Also as was said his company own it and will hire it out to those who want the life style but can't afford to buy one themselves. If I had the money I would love to cruise around the med for a few weeks on it.

Back to the dole office and collect your benefits for you then looser... This guy has taken risk after risk in business, not inherited it, employed hundreds of people so well deserved. All the comments for not being a proper boat "green eye".

What a machine to roll out of a Poole ship yard, well done Sunseeker.

Not an 100ft plus Sunseeker available for £2M on the secondhand market idiot. Do your research.

Even a 2004 104 Predator is £5M now. Eddie Jordan's is 155ft, he has been loyal to the brand for years having faith in its build quality.

Don't even know why prats leave comments on here who have no idea about the marine industry.

It looks a beautiful yacht and so it should be for £32 million! I am not sure why anyone needs £32 million yacht if honest - how the other half live and all!
The only positive is that the people who made it got paid for it and that is about it, lol. Two sides here yes if he can afford it then it is his money to what he pleases with it... then I agree with the other augment £32 million could do so much more for others such as investment in jobs or health, education and emergency services...

Totally agree spyinthesky. It's a super yacht not a Vauxhall Astra!

It will probably appreciate the moment it is handed over. A 155ft boat commissioned by Eddie Jordan and available without the 3+ year waiting list. Every Russian oil tycoon's wet dream.

Wealthy People Rules Comments
The following THREE types of comments are acceptable.

1) Comment showing own ignorance about how money was made. e.g. Not well read about the person and how skint that person may have been at one time, or the risks they took.
2) Comment showing jealousy. e.g. Usually doesn't have the grey matter/nonce or get up and go to do it for themselves.
3) Comment asking why they are not more benevolent (when they may actually do a lot unspoken).
4) Comment which proves exception to this rule.

Good luck to him, if you've got it flaunt it, he earned his money from working and not left by his parents like some.
If you read this Eddie I'm open to a trip.
Just wondering how you accumulate that sort of money by working and that is just his pocket money. I worked solidly for over 50 years and I'm still £32 million short of purchasing a Sunseeker like that.
You working for other people then, and not for yourself.
Well I can afford a pound so if you and I club together and find another 31,999,998 people that have a spare pound we can have one just like Eddie - on a time share of course - all aboard !
OK once done, Ive sorted the rota, you may have the boat on 21st Jan 2094 for the morning, back by 12 lunch time for next syndicate member.

Spot on Dorset Logic, 50 plus years as a donkey with people like Eddie Jordan riding along on my back and ending up with an inward curvature of the spine, so much so that I now walk with a 45 degree backward stance.

The only positive is that the people who made it got paid for it and that is about it, lol. Two sides here yes if he can afford it then it is his money to what he pleases with it... then I agree with the other augment £32 million could do so much more for others such as investment in jobs or health, education and emergency services...
£32 million was a good investment in jobs in Poole for Sunseeker employees who are skilled workers and can be very proud of an end product. The taxes paid by the company and the employees and the tax on the money the workers spend (VAT) could help finance a hospital ward.

It will depreciate 10 million the moment it is handed over.

Then five miliion a year, until it is worth about two million in...say.....2019.

I presume his tax lawyer has it registered as a business expense, to write down the capital depreciation loss against income tax?

It is all a fiddle, but local workers made a wage out of it.
i will happily pay 2 million for it in 5 years time!!!!

That seems like a lot of money for a boat, but it is a superb looking boat. And has employed a lot of local people to build. All those employees are paying tax on earnings instead of being on the dole, all the money they spend is taxed, and is going into our local economy, so the overall boost to the local economy is huge. From me, it a huge thank you to Eddie Jordan for buying British. PS, please show it off to all your friends and get them to buy one too!!!
shame all the profits go abroad!

While we condemn the greedy, the irony is that to some extent we are ALL greedy. It only becomes obvious in cases like this, and we only critisise those that are greedier than ourselves.

Investment by a Foreign Company is not always a bad way forward.For instance take Jaguar-Landrover who in 2008 where pretty much on their knees under the ownership of Ford.
Now owned by Indian Tata they have trebled profits to date and Keep 9,000 British workers employed, many who would have became redundant with the inevitable collapse of Jaguar-Landrover. India Tata also have stated this month that they plan to employ a further 2000 workers in the UK.
