Top celebrity yachts you can rent across the world

Fancy cruising like a celeb? What about reliving iconic moments in pop culture while on board fancy boats?

Then say hello to GetMyBoat, the Airbnb of boat rentals.

These guys share the top famous yachts available from their site, that have been chartered by the Big A-listers like Brangelina, starred in blockbuster films from James Bond to The Pirates of the Caribbean.

We are already packing our bags and jumping on board to sail the seas in a slice of luxury (and maybe in the hope of rubbing shoulders with a celeb too).

To narrow down the choices, the team at GetMyBoat have selected the top yachts you can rent, that have been used in famous movies like the Rum Diaries, Casino Royale, and The Pirates of the Caribbean, and not to mention music videos, television series, and chartered by Hollywood A-listers.

The yachts can be rented by the hour or by the day, making it more flexible and affordable for those seeking a luxury yacht experience, without the burden of having to buy their own.

Is your boss the Executive of the Year?

We tried to nominate ourselves for this award, but apparently ignoring the boss and pretending to be your own boss doesn’t actually make you CEO.
