An American billionaire is buying a Tiger Woods’ yacht.
Roger and Miriam Woods are making a move from a luxury yacht named “Bubbles,” named after their dog, Bubbles, to the brand new $250 million yacht called “Rig by the Sea.”
Rigbys owner Roger and Miramie Woods bought the yacht for $2.2 million in January 2017.
Rigging the boat was done by the Woodses’ former contractor, Mark Clements, according to a press release from the Woods family.RIGBY will be built in a new, environmentally-friendly construction that includes carbon fiber composite panels, glass panels, and carbon fiber-reinforced glass walls.
The yacht will feature four decks and a pool and will be able to accommodate a total of six guests.
RIGBY is expected to be christened in June 2019.
The yacht is set to be ready to sail in 2020 and will feature a new design and name.
The Woodss are set to use the yacht to raise money for various charities, including the Red Cross and the Salvation Army.
It will also serve as a training vessel for the Navy.
Roger Woods told the press release that the yacht will also “provide an excellent training facility for future generations of sailors and divers, and will also allow us to build a relationship with other companies and organizations, including our local community, to further the mission of the Woods Family Foundation.”
The couple, who own the world’s second-largest yacht fleet, have donated the yacht’s yachtyard and the boats that make up the vessel to the Woodss.
The first RIG by the Seas yacht, named “Big Daddy,” is set for completion in 2019.
