Eddie Jordan takes delivery of his $52-million superyacht


Ex Formula 1 team owner Eddie Jordan is now the new owner of the first ever Sunseeker 155 Yacht after officially launching his £32-million ($52-million) new superyacht at a function in Poole.

The Jordan Family Trust worked closely with the Sunseeker team throughout the design process and took full advantage of the bespoke element of the yacht.

Jordan who was boss of his eponymous F1 team until 2005, and famously gave Michael Schumacher his F1 debut back in 1991, said, “I dreamed about building racing cars and then Formula 1 cars and that happened. And then I dreamed about this boat and now here it is. This dream is probably seven or eight years old in my head.”

He added, “I am a big fan of Sunseeker. I cannot tell how much of a fan I am. They are just a fabulous brand, fabulous family and a great workforce. This boat has taken Sunseeker as a brand and British shipbuilding in general to a new level, and it gives them a great opportunity now to roll this out and sell it all over the world.”

Daily Mail reports that Jordan now plans to sail the boat, called Blush, to Monaco where he owns a home, in time for the Monaco Grand Prix at the end of May. The boat will be available for hire for an eye-watering one million pounds a month – and is already booked up for three months.

Jordan is currently a Formula 1 pundit for BBC. (GP247)

    Little Eddie always working the angles. For all his crazy shirts and TV work which he doesn’t need to money for, he does somehow seem to know more about what will happen in F1 than most people.

    How the hell does one finance that?!
    Impressive, for a guy whose team wasn’t paying its bills in the early 2000s.

  • McLarenfan

    Now that is some toy. 5 years and it will have paid for it’s self not that he needs it too.

  • Janjua

    He could have returned Jordan F1 to Formula 1 with that kind of money.

    Smart businessman Eddie. A million a month, twelve million a year. Should recover his investment in three years time.
