Johnny Depp bought a yacht in 2007 that has a pirate-ship theme and can fit 10 guests — take a look
Johnny Depp bought a yacht for an undisclosed price in 2007.
The yacht is known for its art deco-style interior and “pirate-ship” design.
Depp sold the yacht to J.K. Rowling in 2015 for $27 million.
Johnny Depp bought a yacht from Turkish shipyard Proteksan Turquoise yacht in 2007. The yacht is known for its art deco-style interior and “pirate-ship” design.
Depp purchased the Turkish-made yacht for an undisclosed amount and named it “Vajoliroja.” At the time, he was dating Vanessa Paradis. The yacht name is a combination of their names, along with their children’s, Lily-Rose and Jack.
The yacht has played a role in Heard’s testimony against Depp. Heard claimed Depp slammed her against the wall in one of the yacht’s cabins. Heard said Depp was drunk and upset that he had to sell the boat. Depp has denied that he ever abused or assaulted Heard.
Depp hired California-based interior designer LM Pagano to renovate the yacht in 2008.
Pagano, who designed the yacht, said she wanted the 47.6-meter (156-foot) yacht to feel like “the Orient Express on the ocean.”
“There’s so much going on in there, but it all works. I had some of those velvet patterns rewoven for me on original art deco looms!” she told Steinway in an undated interview.
Pagano did not respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
The yacht, which can accommodate 10 guests and nine crew members, has a home cinema and salon.
“I was graced to be working with Johnny, who has extraordinary knowledge and serious appreciation of historic decorative arts,” she wrote in the post. The boat also has a 1930s-inspired dining hall.
The yacht has five large staterooms.
Three of the cabins have double beds, while two have twin beds. All of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, according to Charter Index. In a 2019 Facebook post, Pagano wrote that the bedroom’s decor featured items procured from around the world.
The yacht also has a helicopter pad, swimming pool, and Jacuzzi.
Depp chartered the yacht when he wasn’t using it in 2013.
Depp reportedly charged charterers $130,000 a week during peak seasons and $110,000 during low seasons.
