It seems like with each passing year, celebrities are constantly trying to outdo each other when it comes to the lavish parties they throw. From Diddy’s infamous White Parties to the various private jets celebrities have outfitted to cater to their growing entourage, it seems like there is always a new way for celebrities to truly outshine regular folk during their free-time. While it was once an over-the-top bash to throw a massive party at a multimillion dollar home, it seems like the newest fad revolves around luxury yachts and adventures all around the world.
From St. Tropez to Morocco, it seems like there is nowhere that’s off-limits when it comes to celebrity luxury vacations. While they may feel safe from the prying eyes of the paparazzi when they set sail on their luxury yachts, more than a few of them have been caught living the rich and famous lifestyle out on the water. Whether it’s partying with their entourage, relaxing with their celebrity friends or having an all-out bash for a birthday, it seems like money is no option when it comes to some of the celebrities in Hollywood. It’s hard to deny the advantages of having parties out on the water, especially since the women will be undoubtedly wearing itty bitty bikinis and having fun in the sun. Check out our list of the 15 photos of celebs partying on expensive yachts and take a glimpse at how the other half live when they indulge in some fun on the water.
15 Eva Longoria
When Desperate Housewives was first released in 2004, Eva Longoria hadn’t yet become known as a mainstream celebrity. Marcia Cross had already garnered a fanbase from her time on Melrose Place and TV viewers were happy to see that Teri Hatcher was going to be back on television. Yet, Eva Longoria didn’t let that hold her back from becoming the major breakout actress on the series. Once the series came to an end, some of the other cast members seemed to disappear completely from the limelight but Eva Longoria became a mainstay celebrity. She proved her worth behind the lens and showed that she wasn’t just a one-trick-pony. She was often photographed partying with other celebrities and she wasn’t afraid to show off her fun side. This certainly probably helped her when she met and went on to marry Mexican media mogul, José Bastón.
Nigerian singer/songwriter, Wizkid, has actually been making music since he was 11-years-old but didn’t gain mainstream fame until his 2010 hit, “Holla at Your Boy.” While he has garnered attention for himself as a solo artist, he’s also made headlines regarding his numerous collaborations. Collaborating with Drake, Wizkid is a rising star that has even caused talk involving The Weeknd. When The Weeknd released that the name of his album was “Starboy,” many people thought that he was trying to take away from the Starboy brand that Wizkid had built. When Wizkid turned 25-years-old, he made sure to do it up right by throwing a birthday bash on a luxury yacht in Durban, South Africa. Photos from this 2015 White Party were posted online and, of course, he had to make sure to promote that it was hosted by La Vue Luxury boats.
13 Jay Z & Beyonce
As the reigning King and Queen of Hip Hop, it should come as no surprise that they go big or go home when it comes to partying. Jay Z has built his brand to become known as a business mogul and Beyonce is one of the most successful music artists in the industry. They haven’t been shy about showing off their vacation photos or moments while jet setting around the world. Some of the biggest headlines surrounding them as a couple involve the over-the-top gifts they’ve given one another, including an actual island as a birthday gift. Photos of Beyonce’s 32nd birthday showed up online and it looks like parenthood hasn’t made them any else fun. This particular photo was taken on a yacht in Stromboli, Italy.
12 Cristiano Ronaldo
In a world where sports celebrities are treated like movie stars, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that some of the most sought after individuals partying around the world are actually professional athletes. While soccer isn’t thought of as highly in the United States as in other parts of the world, stars like David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo are able to exude their star quality no matter how their sport is regarded. Ronaldo has dated some of the most beautiful women in the world and is known for living the life of a superstar celebrity. In November of 2015, Ronaldo was photographed showing off his diving skills off of a luxury yacht in St. Tropez. He’s already proven that he has the skills on the soccer field but it seems like he might have missed his calling in the diving world.
11 Leonardo DiCaprio
Leonardo DiCaprio has been thought of as one of Hollywood’s hottest leading men, which has garnered him a reputation over the years. He was known for living the bachelor lifestyle and definitely knew how to play the part when exuding the playboy persona. While he was garnering more respect for his talents on the big screen, his reputation wasn’t always thought of as favorable due to his dating habits. It practically became a joke regarding the revolving door of models throughout his dating history. While it may not look good on the red carpet, it sure looks like fun on a luxury yacht. It’s actually quite ironic that DiCaprio has the kind of money that could afford him the same sort of luxury yachting adventures like the character he played in The Wolf of Wall Street.
Rihanna has never been shy about her partying ways and has repeatedly taken to social media with photo evidence of her exploits. Mixed between the glamor shots of her red carpet looks and hints at her upcoming album releases, there have been a number of questionable photos involving her partying habits. She’s made headlines for the incredibly raunchy photos from her nights out at the strip club and she’s made no apologies for any influence she might have over her young fans. As an artist from Barbados, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that she is known to divulge in more than a few yacht parties. She’s often photographed getting her party on in an ultra-skimpy bikini so she definitely knows how to have fun on the water.
9 Sean “Diddy” Combs
Sean “Diddy” Combs is famous for throwing lavish parties that have a theme. From his infamous White Parties to his jet-setting adventures hosting parties on planes, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he has a propensity towards the finer things in life. The over-the-top infamous parties have made headlines over the years but throughout Diddy’s regular calendar, he’s been known to party it up on luxury yachts. From St. Tropez to Ibiza, Diddy’s yachting excursions have been photographed all over the world. With Diddy being such a popular celebrity, he has the kind of personality that befriends all who meet him. His yachting excursions have included everyone from music artists to supermodels since he has become infamous for knowing how to have a good time.
8 Sofia Richie
Although Sofia Richie had already started to make a name for herself in the modeling world, it wasn’t until she started dating Justin Bieber that the world sat up and took notice of Lionel Richie’s other daughter. While people were out wondering how she was able to rope in Justin Bieber as a boyfriend, they should have been taking notice of all the celebrity friends she quietly made behind-the-scenes. In July of 2016, Richie went on a yachting vacation in St. Tropez and was photographed with a number of other models, including Lily Donaldson and Joan Smalls. This was like a specialty treat for the paparazzi because they got to see a yacht full of beautiful models in scantily clad bikinis, dancing and showering like they didn’t have a care in the world.
7 Alessandra Ambrosio
Alessandra Ambrosio is a Brazilian beauty that is best known for her Angel status with Victoria’s Secret but she’s also modeled for some of the biggest designer brand names. At the age of 35-years-old, Ambrosio looks better than women ten years younger than her. Like many other models that have reached her level of success, Ambrosio is often photographed jet setting around the world. As one of the most respected models in the industry, it shouldn’t be surprising that she has garnered a number of model friends. She was photographed in July of 2016 on a yachting vacation with a number of other models, including Sofia Richie. The paparazzi caught her showing off her dance moves and there were a number of great shots of her jumping off the yacht with all of her bikini-clad friends.
6 Kendall Jenner
Kendall Jenner was first introduced to the world as one of the smallest members of the Kardashian/Jenner clan in the early seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Although she was always thought of as a cute little kid, no one could have guessed how stunning she would become. While her sister, Kylie, evolved into a miniature clone of her big sister, Kim, Kendall embraced her natural looks and broke the mold in order to go on to make a different path for herself. While the giant derrieres may make the covers of the tabloids, Kendall has proven that she can make the covers of magazines and walk the runways all around the world. She’s known for partying on a few luxury yachts during her free time and her natural beauty has shown through.
5 Trey Songz
When Trey Songz was making a name for himself in the music industry, his soulful voice and extra quiet personal life created a persona that was extremely likable. Yet, his personal life stopped being so quiet and started making its way onto the front headlines of tabloids. While his social media posts with various girlfriends definitely amplified his fame status, it was the whisperings about his partying habits that truly made people sit up and take notice. One of his infamous house parties made headlines when Keke Palmer claimed she had to hide in a closet in order to get out of being filmed in his music video. Another time included a highly controversial yacht party in January of 2017. Trey Songz was photographed with a number of Giants’ players on a luxury yacht while celebrating in Miami. The media had a field day with it because they should have been preparing for the big upcoming Green Bay game instead of partying on a yacht.
4 Gigi & Bella Hadid
The interesting thing about Gigi and Bella Hadid is the fact that they have a number of things in common with Kylie and Kendall Jenner. Both pairs of sisters went into the world of modeling and both lived a life in front of the cameras. Although Gigi and Bella were already grown up by the time they were featured on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, they seemed to be able to garner just as much fame due to their stellar modeling careers. Rather than clawing at each other's throats, the two pairs of sisters became great friends and have been caught partying together in recent years. There are a variety of photos online featuring Gigi and Bella partying on luxury yachts, whether it’s with a girls-only trip or just an over-the-top event. Oftentimes, they all like to hang around the same circles so many of the parties have involved a plethora of model and celebrity friends.
3 Ryan Seacrest
When Ryan Seacrest was first introduced to mainstream audiences as the host of American Idol, he was nowhere near the megastar he has become today. Yet, he has been able to work his way to the top, with one job after another. From being a respected television host to his radio show to the various productions he has produced over the years, Seacrest has quietly earned a net worth of $330 million and had a $65 million salary in 2015. At one point, Seacrest was the highest paid reality television host in the U.S. and was thought of as a huge celebrity in his own right. While he may be known for working a number of jobs, he’s also known for living it up during his free time.
2 Naomi Campbell
Naomi Campbell is one of the biggest supermodels that came to popularity during the true heyday of modeling and is still thought of as marketable. Over the years, Campbell has made millions from her runway appearances, endorsement deals and television endeavors. Yet, she has also been on the arm of some of the richest and most influential people of the world. While she may have had her own money to pay for her life of luxury, her string of rich ex-boyfriends prove that she knew how to party without ever having to bring her wallet along on the trip. This particular yacht party was while she dated Vladislav Doronin. Her relationship with Doronin made all kinds of headlines because he was still married when he was photographed locking lips with Campbell on yachting trips around the world.
1 Justin Bieber
When Justin Bieber released his first studio album, there were some that saw his sudden burst to fame as a prelude to the craziness that was to come. Achieving fame and money at such a young age can cause some individuals to go a little overboard when it comes to their partying habits. This is exactly the case with Bieber since no sooner did he have a driver’s license did he get arrested for an alleged drag racing incident. There seems to be an endless group of entourage wherever Bieber goes and his luxury yachts are also a favorite for taking women out on lavish vacations. He’s been photographed with some of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, including Selena Gomez and Sofia Richie among others.
