Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour buys world’s fourth largest yacht

Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed, the owner of Manchester City, spent £500m buying a yacht so huge it barely fit inside the Etihad Stadium, the city’s stronghold.

According to the British newspaper The Sun, the huge yacht has two helipads to transport guests to and from the beach.

The giant yacht was named “Blue” in honor of the champions of the English Premier League.

The fourth largest yacht in the world, the yacht contains four entertainment decks, 40 staterooms that can accommodate 48 guests and a large outdoor area including a clubhouse and pool.

The newspaper indicated that the yacht would have 80 people to operate it and provide all its services, with a maximum speed of 21.8 miles per hour.

The newspaper added that the cost of fuel at one time to fill a tank is as high as £500,000.

Sheikh Mansour, 51, is a member of the Abu Dhabi ruling family and Deputy Prime Minister of the UAE.

Through his group at Abu Dhabi United, he bought City for £210m in 2008 and the team has won six Premier League titles to date.

In addition, Sheikh Mansour owns 5% of Ferrari and 9.1% of Daimler AG, the company that owns Mercedes.

Manchester City have won the English Premier League title in the 2021-2022 season in one of the local championship streaks the team has achieved in the most famous leagues in the world.
