Greg Norman’s Yacht Makes Skyscrapers Look Small

greg norman aussie rules yacht

At 285 feet long, Greg Norman’s new yacht is like his own personal portable island – or country. Possibly the largest aluminum yacht ever built, the $70 million “Aussie Rules” was built by Oceanfast and features anything you could want.

“Included in that price tag is a $1 million home theatre, two hyperbaric chambers (to restore your breath after you find out how much this thing costs!), seven auxiliary boats (in this case, one being a sportfish yacht that looks the size of a dingy in comparison!), several jet-ski’s, a work-out gym and rumor has it… some 200 fishing rods,” according to the Boatcatch Facebook page.

Whether or not this thing comes with an 18-hole golf course built in, I know who I want to invite me on their next fishing trip.

Update: Over the years, Norman has owned a veritable armada of sport-fishing vessels and pleasure cruisers.  The yacht no longer belongs to Norman; he sold it for a reported $77 million. But don’t think he couldn’t buy another if he wanted. Bottom line: If you want to travel the seas like this Shark, you’re going to need a bigger boat.

Greg Norman's 87ft Oceanfast Aussie Rules for sale

Aussie rules, the 87ft oceanfast sportfish designed for expedition fishing, now for sale on our sites.

We have to go back 20 years to when our Marine Editor was a callow youth to recount the launch of this stunning 87ft luxury Oceanfast Sportfish built in Western Australia for Greg Norman.

It was circa 1996 and David Lockwood was bestowed the honour of being the first and only Australian journalist to drive this impressive boat, designed with Greg "The Shark" Norman's considerable input.

The 87 footer was intended to spearhead a range of long-range Norman Sports Classic line game boats from 80-120 feet built by Oceanfast.

"I drove Aussie Rules fast down Sydney Harbour at daybreak, the MTUs roaring, the sound system blaring — some of the crew hadn't slept that night and the party was still going — as the towering boat in blue livery with red boot stripe cut an impressive figure before the weary Sydney ferries just booting up," he says.

"It might be two decades ago, but this was a highlight of a boating hack's career. I can close my eyes now and still feel the power... and the energy of the crew including "Flash" partying hard at 5.30am."

Those twin 1500hp MTU engines, and a 18,000-plus litre fuel supply, were central to this boat's design intent — expedition fishing, with luxurious living accommodations for extended periods on the ocean.

The boat has a 28-knot top speed (Lockwood says he reached that on the throttles), cruised at 23 knots and had an 800-1000nm range. Coming out of production US sportfishers, Norman wanted the ability to fish distant locations and Aussie Rules has apparently seen some of the world's hottest fishing spots over the years.

The custom fishing equipment includes a giant winch facing the transom door, huge fish box, lighted aquarium wells, Rupp triple spreader 41' outrigger, bait freezers, Murray Brothers helm chair, aft station, transom fish door with dive access and swim out, Marine Metal Fabrications tower and more.

The watersports and dive gear includes scuba gear storage, cockpit entrance, dive tank storage, bar fridge with ice maker, BBQ grill, rod stowage compartment under lounge, external head and shower and so on.

As things eventuated, this boat was the only model in the adventurous Norman Sports Classic line produced by Oceanfast Marine Group, one of Australia's largest shipbuilders at the time. The promising venture intended to build luxury sportfishers from 80 to 120 feet in length, but Oceanfast ran into financial trouble.

Norman believed there was a market for bigger sportfishers — time has proven him right — and he believed that he knew what people wanted in them.

Back in the mid-90s, Oceanfast CEO John Farrell told the Florida-based newspaper The Sun-Sentinel that Norman (who preferred to fish stand-up tackle) had firm ideas of what he wanted in his boat.

"All of the boats will be built with Greg Norman's name on them and with Greg Norman's input. Norman's influence will be most evident in the boat's size, lines and cockpit area.

"Greg is fanatical about the cockpit layout, the height of the combing, the location of the baitwell," Farrell said back then. "He also has a particular idea on style."

Aussie Rules was the showboat for the range that never eventuated. As such, it has a long list of features and equipment that you won't find on a production vessel. The loaded boat was selling for US$4.9m at the time, but has returned to the market with a US$1.89m asking price two decades later.

Now newly refitted, the interior sleeps 10, plus crew, while the decor — originally Australian silky oak — and updated AV electronics throughout the vessel are said to result in a fresh atmosphere.

At the time Lockwood drove it, Norman's captain Gary Stuve, who skippered The Shark’s boats for six years, said: "You're not going to catch a world-record blue [marlin) on 12-pound line, but it handles good enough that you can catch fish in it."

FORWARD:  Greg Norman, also known as "The Shark", has been a highly successful golf pro on the PGA circuit for a number of years.  His prowess at golf and great popularity has obviously rewarded him well.
In addition to his athletic ability, it is a well-known fact that Mr. Norman is a shrewd businessman.  Furthermore he is very personable which has led to many endorsements. 
You are about to see what kinds of material rewards come to someone as talented as Greg Norman.

Here is Greg Norman's yacht.  Say hello to Aussie Rules as she is called.
Have you ever dreamed of buying your own yacht and putting out to sea to cruise the world?  This story answers the question of what the super-rich do with their money when they decide to have fun.  Most of us have no shot at something this magnificent, but it is pretty wonderful to see what is possible nonetheless.  I suppose some people might criticize Mr. Norman for making his opulent toy so conspicuous, but I don't mind at all.  Indeed, I feel very grateful that I have been permitted to get a peek at this marvelous lifestyle.  I thoroughly enjoy stoking my fantasies!    I am sure that right about now you are wondering to yourself if it is too late to take up golf.  Who would have ever imagined that an odd little Scottish game like GOLF could be parlayed into a yacht as magnificent as this!?!   Wow!
Before we continue, I would like to explain more about this web page.  I have no connection to Mr. Norman.  These pictures were simply forwarded to me in an email from a friend back in 2005.  I was so amazed by the beauty of the yacht that I immediately posted them on the Internet for my friends to see.
It wasn't until I did an update in 2008 that I realized these pictures were taken from a web site titled .  I assume that Mr. Norman had this site created.  Now that I realize the true origin of the pictures, let me state that I will remove these pictures without any hesitation if asked to do so.
I hope that Mr. Norman and his representatives would understand that I maintain this page strictly out of admiration for his floating work of art.  Any cursory glance around my SSQQ web site would show I am not exploiting the pictures in any commercial way.  Mr. Norman certainly has every right to be proud of this beautiful ship and I thank him for sharing its beauty with the rest of us. 

verything about this ship is both colorful and rich as well as tasteful and warm.

 Greg Norman took delivery of his new toy in 2005.  At 69.5 metres (228 feet) in length, it's the world's largest aluminum and composite private yacht.  He named his beautiful yacht "Aussie Rules".
Back w
hen Greg Norman first cruised into Sydney Harbor, onlookers gasped at the immense size of the yacht.  They remarked, "What a massive ship!   Why, it's nearly three times the size of the ferries in the Harbor!"  

Norman had his yacht built for $70 million dollars.  He helped design the yacht himself.  Rumor has it the company meant to build it for him "at cost" in return for the excellent advertising of having him as an owner, but they actually lost money on it.

In addition to being opulent, the yacht is also built for Jacques Cousteau - type fun and exploration. There is onboard diving equipment for 30 people including a decompression chamber and two huge compressors. Dives of all types can be accomplished by operating the Nitrox Mixing Panel onboard, enabling each guest's air tank to be customized with a mixture of gases.
Even the Bridge looks comfortable.  That helps make those long nights of cruising the Pacific Islands more enjoyable. 
The more we see, the more the yacht resembles a floating mansion! 
Very pretty.  As you see, dining can be held outdoors if the weather permits.  
The picture above gives us an idea of the breath-taking views that might accompany a simple morning breakfast at this open air table!    Now check out the sunken cocktail area.  Are you envious yet?
When night falls or stormy weather comes calling, we see that the yacht has an exquisite interior dining room as well.  All the comforts of home but no grass to mow and no property taxes to pay!   What a dream. THE FUN SHIP! Mr. Norman wanted his yacht to be practical in addition to comfortable.  When visiting tropical islands and scuba locations, he wanted everyone to have as much mobility as possible.  To get the people out to those choice dive spots or maybe to visit a deserted beach for a splash in the warm water , the following additional "small" boats are kept onboard: A 42-Foot Custom Built "Game Fisher" c an be launched and retrieved from the deck. Perfect for a 4-person overnight fishing expedition. Has a gourmet galley for cooking up the catch while it's still fresh. There is a 2 2-Foot Novurania Equator with a meager 800 horsepower so you can get to the best diving sites ahead of everyone else. It has beach landing capability as well. Two 18-Foot Hewes Bonerfishers for those special occasions when Norman a n d his friend s wish to maneuver over the sand flats in Key West, Florida .
30-Foot SeeVee for afternoon fishing. Plus a 13-Foot Narwhal Rescue Boat in case someone falls off one of those other boats.
Plus 4 Yamaha Waverunners!!!   Good grief already!  Where do they store it all?  Watching all those boats emerge reminds of a Russian Matryoshka Doll where the little dolls just keep coming out of the bigger ones!  
There seems to be no end to the storage space in this magnificent vessel.  You almost begin to look for a car and a helicopter to emerge as well!   So much pleasure and so much comfort.

Well, now it's time to wrap it up.  Hope you enjoyed the visit.  If you have enjoyed viewing these pictures, you will definitely enjoy seeing even more pictures at the home page for AUSSIE RULES What you see here is only the tip of the iceberg.   There you will find dozens more pictures plus a great deal of explanation about the yacht. As for me, I'm signing up for golf lessons today.   Maybe I will see you on the golf course!      Rick Archer

In conversation with golfing legend and avid yachtsman Greg Norman

greg norman aussie rules yacht

Known worldwide as an athlete and a businessman, Greg Norman has seen international success both on the golf course and in the boardroom. An icon of the sport, Australian-born Norman started golfing at the age of 15 and joined the PGA tour full-time in 1983. He went on to hold the second-longest reign as world number one and win over 90 PGA tournaments, earning him the name ‘Great White Shark’.

Now a successful entrepreneur, Greg is chairman and CEO of the Greg Norman Company, which owns over a dozen businesses worldwide – encompassing golf course design, global real estate award-winning wine, lifestyle apparel, and a diverse investment division. He lives with his family in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, where he continues to be involved in sporting, business and charitable endeavours. An avid yachtsman, Greg has owned multiple superyachts, including the 70m Oceanfast superyacht AUSSIE RULES, which he sold in 2004.

Having sold AUSSIE RULES once as FLORIDIAN and then for a second time as NOMAD at the Monaco Yacht Show (agreeing the deal as yacht horns blared to signal the end of the event), our good friends over at Ocean Independence were keen to learn more about what drives Greg and discuss his love of yachting.

Did you have a connection to the water from an early age?

I grew up in Townsville, close to the beach, and my family had a holiday hut on Magnetic Island, only eight kilometres from the shore, so the Great Barrier Reef was in my blood! Every day as a young kid, I would come home from school and we would go out fishing, surfing, snorkelling, and diving. I would ride my horse bareback along the beach, skim-board, and fish in a little boat with an 18-horsepower motor on the back. My sister and I grew up sailing a little boat called Peter Pan with the Townsville Sailing Club. I was very fortunate – I had a wonderful childhood.

Greg Norman

And how about golf?

At age 15 we moved to Brisbane because of my dad’s work. I lost all my mates, though I was still surfing a lot at Sunshine Beach and Byron Bay. My golf really came on around the age of 16 after caddying for my mum one day. She was a four handicap, so I figured if she could do it, so could I. After that everything else got tossed aside, including water sports, cricket, rugby, and Aussie Rules.

How did you get involved in superyacht ownership?

It came out of my love of the ocean. My dad built me a boat with wood framing when I was about 11 years old, and I thought the woodworking process was amazing. I had watched my dad working under our house and was fascinated by how much work was involved in shaping, and the tools involved. This whole experience really stayed with me.

The first AUSSIE RULES was a 27m sports fishing boat, built by Oceanfast in Australia. My passion for deep-sea fishing and scuba diving were the motivators behind this build: I wanted a platform that would allow me to do both. I shipped it over to the US, and quite honestly it was one of the biggest sports fishing boats there at the time – I was ahead of the game. It was the platform I wanted with the four state rooms and plenty of dive rooms. Great for the Bahamas and the Caribbean.

Then I bought a Feadship, which I enjoyed, but at the same time I knew there was something missing. I needed to have another sports fishing boat to go diving and fishing. I had the idea of building the 69m AUSSIE RULES at Oceanfast, with a combination of all the things I needed. I designed it to circumnavigate Australia, which I really wanted to do. It had a flat bottom, because tidal flows in the northern part of Australia are 45 feet. I got involved with the tank testing, the stringers, all those engineering things – I was fascinated with the build process and I really studied hard. I wrote the specification book before I even went to the yard.

greg norman aussie rules yacht

What did you like about the build process?

All of it! I loved understanding the engine room and the working spaces, the generators, centrifuges and water-makers, all that stuff. There was the question of where we were going to put everything. There is a refrigerated trash compactor in the transom. The boat just grew and grew to be the 230. To build something of that magnitude and sophistication in the late 1990s, we had to be innovative in our mindset. We won the Showboats Yacht of the Year award.

It is very important to remember that the yacht is a testament to Oceanfast, my captain (who was present throughout the build), and all the engineers, the sparks, and the skilled people who did a phenomenal job in Australia. This yacht was ten years ahead of her time. I really couldn’t get to enjoy her as much as I wanted as I was still playing golf. If I had the yacht now, you would never see me working. I regretted the day I sold her!

Tell us about a favourite adventure on AUSSIE RULES

I remember a month in French Polynesia with my family. We almost ran out of fuel as we got back to Bora Bora. We held like 285,000 litres and used the lot on the most amazing experience I’ve ever had: the most beautiful water, great experiences with oceanic white tips and bottlenose whales. Amazing!

greg norman aussie rules yacht

How have your businesses been during the Covid-19 pandemic?

My businesses are global, so it’s not a one-size fits all answer. I think the world is in a confused place right now. From a geopolitical standpoint, there’s so much white noise and media bias. I have this saying: ‘The voice of the critic is far louder than the voice of the advocate’. Nowadays, one person challenging and complaining about a company can change everything. You have to be extremely sensitive to those situations and demands from customers.

Through my travels, I love seeing what happens in different countries. Take Vietnam, a communist country loving free market capitalism! It is a red-hot country – great people, great food, great cities and very safe. The Vietnamese recognise that market capitalism is as good as gold. I was asked to be the Golf Tourism Ambassador in Vietnam, and I accepted wholeheartedly.

All of that being said, I love where we are at and I think we’ve done a very good job of managing the whole process with my consumer products during the pandemic. We are in a strong position. Now we are looking into expanding further into the health and wellness space and looking at new opportunities – you have to be a forward thinker. I never look to the past, always to the future.

Norman takes delivery of $70 million 'Aussie Rules'

Nothing is ever too grandiose for Greg Norman , especially when it comes to yachts.

The Shark took delivery Tuesday of the latest version of ''Aussie Rules,'' a 285-foot craft that was said to cost $70 million and is the world's largest aluminum motor yacht.

''There are many interesting and unique design features that will place Aussie Rules at the top of her category when she is seen in cruising destinations throughout the world,'' Norman said.

Unique might be an understatement.

The yacht has seven auxiliary boats, two hyperbaric chambers and a $1 million home theater. Optional extras include a gym, several jet skis, an outdoor span and a tackle room with 200 fishing rods.

Oceanfast in Western Australia built the craft, which required three years and more than 300 workers.

How big is Greg Norman’s yacht?

Answered by Jim Martinez

Greg Norman’s yacht, also known as Aussie Rules, is an impressive vessel in terms of size and scale. Measuring at a length of 227 ft (69.49 meters), it truly commands attention on the open waters. The yacht’s waterline length is approximately 204.12 ft, further contributing to its grandeur.

When one first steps aboard the Norman yacht, they are immediately struck by its immense size and presence. It is a sight to behold, with its sleek exterior and luxurious design. The yacht’s length allows for ample space and comfort, ensuring that guests can relax and enjoy their time on board.

Having had the opportunity to see the Aussie Rules up close, I was struck by the attention to detail and craftsmanship that went into its construction. Every aspect of the yacht’s design seemed meticulously planned and executed, from the spacious deck areas to the elegant interior spaces.

The yacht’s size also allows for a variety of amenities and features to be included. Onboard, one can find multiple lounges and dining areas, perfect for entertaining guests or enjoying a quiet evening with loved ones. The yacht even boasts a private cinema, where one can catch a movie in ultimate luxury.

In terms of outdoor spaces, the Norman yacht does not disappoint. It features a large swimming pool and jacuzzi, providing the perfect spot for relaxation and taking in the breathtaking views. Additionally, there are multiple decks and sunbathing areas, allowing guests to soak up the sun and enjoy the fresh ocean air.

The size of the yacht also enables it to house an impressive collection of water toys and recreational equipment. From jet skis to paddleboards, there is no shortage of activities to partake in while on board. This adds an extra layer of excitement and adventure to the overall yachting experience.

The size of Greg Norman’s yacht is truly remarkable. Its vast measurements and well-thought-out design make it a standout in the world of luxury yachts.

The MCA and Lloyd's compliant helipad has the special capability of refueling with Jet A fuel onboard. Below the helipad is a massive aft deck which is perfect for large social gatherings. "Unique features are the four Quantum Zero Speed Stabilizers and state-of-the-art electronics package with Wi-Fi throughout the yacht via V-Sat." points out IYC's project manager Mike Napoli. The FLORIDIAN, with a tremendous charter history as the ex Aussie Rules, will be chartering in the Mediterranean this summer for $375,000 per week plus expenses for 12 guests. Amenities include two 22' tenders and a 43' Cabo sport fisherman.

It sure was, but he was rarely aboard. Maybe Wayne will use it more often. I remember being astonished at the size of Aussie Rules when it was first launched. It doesn't seem so large with the new crop of yachts out there. Greg invited us aboard some time ago. We were docked close by. He was a consumate gentleman. His interest have moved away from water and more towards land. He's done quite well with his real estate investments. I can't say I like the deck extension. It lost some of it's expedition qualities.
Sure, the deck extension makes it somewhat more 'normal' i really liked the rear shot prior to the revamp. See here... and here T'was a beautiful rear shot!

I agree, the refit has taken away its main purpose of being an expedition yacht. It was big news down here when it was bieng built so to see it go that way its is a touch sad. Pitty Greg didnt utilise it more.

I think that in a way it is more of an expedition yacht now. A helicopter is probably of more use than a big sportfish yacht at remote places. Anyway, the best is that the red striping is gone....

Cabo tender onboard I also heard about the new "Floridian" carrying a Cabo 43 Flybridge sportfisherman as a tender... but how does this get hosted onboard? Or is it just (as i presume) a towable or "run beside" tender? This Cabo 43 is roughly the same size of the old "No Rules" by Garlington....

I watched the film "Kiss and Kill" with Ashton Kutcher with friends yesterday and recognized that Nomad had a little supporting role in that film! Like Sunseekers in James Bond films since years.
I just happened to watch that myself tonight.

Thanks Nate!  Next pint's on me!!

Greg Norman’s Yacht

The rotors of a helicopter cut through the Florida heat as Greg Norman delivered a speech. Oceanfast built “Aussie Rules” for the pro golfer. It has a helicopter pad for 12 people and two turboprop engines in the rear to help the yacht reach cruising speed. The rotors are so loud that they interrupt Greg Norman’s speech. Greg Norman’s yacht has been spotted in a number of places, including Cabo and Puerto Vallarta.

Greg Norman’s blond hair and aggressive style have earned him the nickname “Great White Shark”. His mother, a Finnish immigrant from Finland, was a member on the PGA Tour when Norman was just 15 years old. He began to improve her game and act as her caddy shortly after. Norman graduated high school knowing that he had the potential to be an international sports star. In fact, he won the 1981 Masters and later went on to win the U.S. Open.

The OCEAN SPIRIT yacht is a high-quality Australian yacht. It cost its first owner US$70million. Since then, Norman has added four Yamaha Waverunners and a Mini Cooper. It has a capacity of up to 24 guests and is capable of sleeping 14 people. Kutayba alghanim, a Kuwaiti billionaire, currently owns the yacht. Norman’s wife Kristen Kutner lives on board.

Greg Norman has spent a lot of money on luxury yachts. The Oceanfast “Aussie Rules”, which cost $70 million, was purchased by Greg Norman. She is 285 feet long and is an expedition-style yacht. A twelve-seat helicopter is also available. Greg Norman’s net worth was estimated at $340 million in April 2022. So, just how much does a golf pro spend on a yacht?

As a golfer, Greg Norman has received numerous endorsements and is an extremely successful businessman. His yacht, Aussie Rules, is named after the Australian game of golf. It is the largest private yacht in the World and has been seen in many locations including Hawaii, Monaco, and Monaco. Despite its high price tag, Greg Norman’s yacht has a huge following.

The golfer has spent a large portion of his wealth on luxury yachts. From 1986 to 1995, he was the top earner on the professional golf circuit, with earnings of more than $10 million. The prize money is not a fixed salary for golfers, but they do get a prize money if they are among the winners. The golfer has a net value of $300 million and has also invested in a company that designs golf courses. Other golfers who have built their own yachts include Tony Finau and Xander Schauffele.

The Nomad yacht: A legendary superyacht

Previously owned by Greg Norman, this superyacht is currently listed for sale. In a recent interview, Norman stated his regret about selling the yacht. It is not the first time he has owned a yacht. He had two other smaller yachts before the Nomad yacht as it is known now.

The process of  Renting a yacht in Dubai  is easy and hassle free.

While chartering the Nomad is not much of an option since it’s a privately owned one, you can rent another yacht similar to the Nomad. At our luxury yacht charter in Dubai , we have a variety of yacht options you can choose from.
