A Closer Look at David and Victoria Beckham's Yacht SeaFair

For years, David and Victoria Beckham have been photographed visiting their celebrity friends' luxury yacht boats and renting a luxury yacht for various trips. In fact, the Beckhams are often seen hanging out on yachts with their children in Miami, the Mediterranean, and even as far as Bali. 

It's not unusual to see people like David and Victoria Beckham hanging out on their celebrity friends' yachts, particularly if they can't afford their own yachts. However, the former Posh Spice and MLS team player definitely make a high-earning pair among their social group.

Perhaps that's why it's not surprising that  the Beckhams aren't content to play on other people's boats  – and who can blame them? They finally purchased a SeaFair yacht of their own, and it's a doozy. This commercial yacht can transform a life and is the kind of boat you'd love to see on a photo shoot.

Here's a look at  David and Victoria Beckham's yacht SeaFair , and the other yachts they've vacationed on. The Beckhams are known as doting parents, so do they spend a lot of quality time on their yachts with their little ones? Let's take a quick look at David & Victoria Beckham's yacht SeaFair to learn more.

Our Methodology

When examining David and Victoria Beckham's yacht, we made sure to do a lot of research. We firmly believe that great research helps transform articles into works of art, and whether you're a fan of the Spice Girls, Posh Spice, Beckham's MLS team years, or simply want to see them photographed visiting various areas, it's important to get the information you want. Here's how we write our articles:

  • Check out our previous articles on a subject to see if they're still accurate
  • Carefully read through each for common grammar and spelling problems 
  • Add new information based on our in-depth research and fix any errors 
  • Examine more sources and integrate them into the article when possible 
  • Continually update the article to make it more fascinating and interesting 

Examining the Beckhams SeaFair Yacht

No matter why you're interested in this subject, we can provide you with in-depth information about Victoria and David Beckham's SeaFair yacht. It's the kind of topic that provides a fun and engaging read to certain people. For instance, it's common to see people interested in lifestyle topics browsing through articles like these to learn more about how the richest people in the world live.

Who are David & Victoria Beckham?

David and Victoria Beckham have amassed  an estimated net worth  of $1 billion and have no problem  spending money  on their family, their friends, and themselves. When the couple isn't running their fashion and other brand companies, they're vacationing with their children and celebrity friends, often on a yacht. But who exactly are these people? Let's start by talking about David Beckham.

Let's Check Out David Beckham

David Beckham  is a former soccer player who's competed in many leagues. Throughout the 2000s, he was the standard bearer for British football and the kind of person you just knew would buy a yacht one day. David retired from the Manchester United Football team in 2013.

Since then, he's had many different roles. He is a UNICEF Ambassador and is co-owner of a new MLS team based in Miami, Florida, as well as an English non-league club. This new MLS team has taken up much of his time, but he's also become something of a fashion designer in recent years. 

In fact, David Beckham has his own fashion and footwear lines and is a co-owner of several companies. Though perhaps not a fashion designer in and of himself, he has hired some of the best in the world to maintain an attractive and appealing look that makes David Beckham popular even now.

The Inside Scoop on Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham  is primarily known as a member of the former 1990s band the Spice Girls. Victoria Beckham was one of the most popular of these singers and was known as a sophisticated lady. In fact, this sophisticated lady was named "Posh Spice" while she performed with the band. 

Victoria Beckham earned the nickname for her sophisticated style with the band. Since then, Posh Spice has kept up with that reputation and become a fashion designer of note. In fact, Victoria Beckham owns her own fashion line and is a constant figure in the fashion world. 

David and Victoria Beckham, Power Couple

David Beckham and Victoria Beckham both have several endorsement deals. For David Beckham, these include  a lot of soccer endorsements , as well as fashionable lines. We already know he works with UNICEF, though he already provides support for other charitable organizations. 

Victoria Beckham  has multiple endorsements, including Armani, Estee Lauder, and Dolce. She has capitalized on her time as Posh Spice with the Spice Girls to cultivate an image of a cultured and sophisticated lady. It's helped them stay financially solvent and worth a lot of money.

What makes them so interesting is that they've stayed together for over 20 years. In fact, they celebrated their 24th anniversary while on vacation with their four children, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz, and Harper. They've been seen traveling throughout the Mediterranean and other areas for years.

Furthermore, the Beckhams have homes in Beverly Hills and London. They split their time between these houses, focusing on things like their photoshoot gigs and their appearances elsewhere to stay current and exciting. But what exactly is the deal with their SeaFair yacht?

The SeaFair Yacht

David and Victoria Beckham have enjoyed vacation time with friends and family on so many luxury yachts that they decided to purchase their own rather than renting. Victoria and her husband David wanted to find luxury yachts that they could show off to their friends rather than always renting.

Apparently inspired by the SeaFair Miami mega yacht that they've partied on and David shot a commercial on in 2016, the Beckhams purchased a smaller SeaFair yach t. Victoria and her hubby showed it off to their friends for over a week, renting out visits with  friends and family members .

The yacht is nicknamed "The Sophisticated Lady," no doubt in reference to Victoria, formerly known as "Posh Spice" when she performed with the Spice Girls in the 1990s. We love that nickname because it highlights the fun atmosphere that Victoria Beckham and her hubby David like showing off. 

The yacht was purchased for a reported $4 million and is similar in design to the SeaFair Miami. It features plenty of deck space and a roomy interior. There is a gym, galley, and salon. Like many a luxury yacht on the market, it provides more than enough room for friends and family members. 

Furthermore, there is plenty of room to host up to eight guests in four guest suites. There are also two cabins for crew members. "The Sophisticated Lady" is 94 feet long and cruises up to 40 mph.

As Victoria Beckham and her husband David tour the world in their luxury yacht, they often spend more than a week with each group, including friends and their children. The Beckhams are known as doting parents who decided to provide their children with a fancy life they didn't have growing up.

When examining a photo of this large commercial yacht, you'll see a few things right away. First, it matches the physical beauty this power pair poses: it simply looks fantastic. Furthermore, this popular pair has been seen on their luxury yacht in London, Florida, Paris, and many other parts of the world. 

The SeaFair Miami

No doubt the Beckhams were inspired to purchase their SeaFair yacht when David Beckham chartered the  SeaFair  mega yacht in Miami in 2016 to shoot a commercial for his company Haig Club Whiskey. This beautiful yacht made Victoria's hubby jealous and clearly excited.

Beckham chartered the yacht in 2016 to film the commercial, which showcased the epitome of luxury with a party aboard the SeaFair Yacht with beautiful guests. Since then, he and Victoria enjoyed it before and after their wedding and explored the coast of many parts of the world. 

Each of their trip destinations included summer fun along various coast areas, including their amazing,  record-breaking wedding . Obviously, the two eventually decided to cut out the middle person and buy a yacht so that they could handle each trip themselves. In this way, they could get lots of sunshine.

Furthermore, David and Victoria took their youngest children out on this yacht regularly, getting them used to spending time on a lavish yacht. But what exactly makes the SeaFair such a lavish yacht? Let's take a deep look at this amazing yacht to get an idea of why David and Victoria loved it. 

Amazing Amenities The Beckhams Couldn't Forget

The Beckhams not only got a lot of sunshine while on this boat. They also spent time with their family, including Brooklyn, Harper, and Cruz. David and his wife Victoria loved taking their family out to Italy, Florida, Spain, and other parts of the world while booking  the biggest SeaFair lavish yacht .

If you've ever been on the SeaFair mega yacht, you'd understand why. It is a charter yacht that can be used as a luxury venue for multiple occasions and events, from business conferences to parties. The supersized yacht was designed by Luiz de Basto and underwent a multi-million dollar makeover.

It received this makeover just before former soccer player David Beckham used it as a venue to film his Haig Club Whiskey ad. After he visited it, he told his wife all about it and told him that they had to get their family on it, even if they wouldn't be buying it. After all, the yacht is worth $40 million. 

Think about that for a minute: a power couple that has over $1 billion to their name couldn't afford this yacht but had to rent it instead. It's not just a boat; it's an adventure. The SeaFair has a unique design and plenty of room to party, especially if you have lots of friends you want to hang out with on the water. 

The  SeaFair is 228 feet long  and features four deck floors, including a sky deck. There are 11,000 square feet of conference space and $10,000 square feet of entertainment space. Let's face it: there's so much to do that you and your 300 best friends probably couldn't get enough. 

In fact, the SeaFair mega yacht can accommodate up to 600 guests in two dining rooms and seven bars. The huge yacht is mainly docked at the InterContinental Hotel in Miami but travels up the coast of Florida to host events. It's no wonder that David Beckham chose SeaFair for his hit commercial.

Recent Trip to Miami

The Beckham family recently took  a much-needed break vacationing  in Miami, Florida, and enjoying time on their yacht. While not quite as big as the massive SeaFair, their smaller version is definitely perfect for Cruz, Harper, Romeo, and Brooklyn. It's a fun and unforgettable way to vacation. 

While in Miami, the family was invited to stay at singer Marc Anthony's estate. Anthony is a good friend of the couple and lives in a posh Coral Gables neighborhood of the city. While here, Victoria and David spent time swimming, exercising, and enjoying Marc Anthony's outgoing personality.

For example, they spent time in Anthony's 12-bedroom Mediterranean estate, as well as  enjoying time on their yacht , cruising Biscayne Bay, and spending time in the Everglades. Exploring this exciting city has always been something they've enjoyed doing, including  spending time with Lionel Messi .

Clearly, the two  love their yacht  and plan on spending as much time on it as possible. Wouldn't you? Along with Cruz, Brooklyn, Romeo, and Harper, it seems like they're poised to travel the world. And with their children getting old enough to get married (Brooklyn specifically), it's likely even more members will join them on their big yacht.

Easter Celebration with Marc Anthony

Their most recent trip isn't the first or last time they've visited Anthony in Miami. For example, they visited Anthony in Miami in the spring of 2018 to celebrate Easter. They  brought along their children  (as usual) and had a lot of fun on their yacht with the Latin American singer.

For example, they enjoyed the break relaxing and playing on a yacht. There is plenty of space to relax and play on the 120-foot yacht. The interior features natural wood and white and blue accents. That natural beauty creates an attractive style that makes it an appealing and modern boat. 

Within its expansive interior, there is a salon, galley, and dining room, as well as two full bars and five guest suites. There's also plenty of deck space with a wide swim platform, lounging areas, and a Jacuzzi. All these amenities make it very comfortable and enjoyable for visitors.

This trip is also not the first time that the Beckhams  celebrated Easter together . They often post pictures of their kids, including Cruz, Brooklyn, Romeo, and Harper, highlighting their growth and development. Their children seem well-adjusted and not at all spoiled by their parents' wealth.

Other Yacht Excursions

The Beckhams are no strangers to spending vacations on yachts. Back in 2009, they were spotted on  fashion designer  Roberto Cavalli's yacht, Freedom. Obviously, their time on Cavalli's yacht must have worn off, and the two are now enjoying their own yachting experience with their family. 

Furthermore, during one long summer, the Beckhams visited the south of France and were invited to join good friend  Elton John , his husband David Furnish, and their children on their 164-ft mega yacht Wabi Sabi. John is well known for his warmth and generosity with people he loves. 

As a result, the families had a great time exploring the Côte d'Azur. They checked out plenty of shore destinations, had some fun at various concerts, and spent time exploring the region together. Like all doting parents, they even  brought along their kids  to make the experience even more enjoyable.

Will there be even more reports of these two enjoying their boat together with friends? Well, the celebrity world is a small one and famous people often spend lots of time together on vacations and beyond. Clearly, it's likely that we haven't seen the last of Victoria or David Beckham and their fantastic and unforgettable boat.

No ground stops in South Florida, but flight delays reported amid worldwide technology outage

Widespread technology outage disrupts flights, banks, media outlets and companies around the world, 2 heat advisories in effect for 10 regions in the area, san francisco 49ers star helps south florida kids get ready for back-to-school.

Kristi Krueger , Anchor/Health Reporter

DAVIE, Fla. – A professional football star with South Florida roots was in town to help local kids get ready for the new school year.

San Francisco 49ers player Jon Feliciano partnered with his alma mater, Western High School, for a backpack giveaway on Thursday.

Hundreds of students and parents in the community gathered to get their free backpacks for the upcoming school year.

“Not having much, this school and this community has always had my back, so when I made it to the NFL I gave back to the school and the community,” said Feliciano.

Feeding South Florida also joined the event as they distributed 300 snack packs to help students learn about healthy eating.

“We’re also here to make sure that kids have food over the weekend, especially during the summer months when it’s difficult to get free breakfast and free lunch at the schools,” said Paco Velez with Feed South Florida.

Exiled Chinese tycoon Guo Wengui convicted in billion-dollar fraud scheme

Prosecutors said guo wengui and his business partner solicited more than $1 billion of investments in various entities and ventures through false statements and representations..

Portrait of Thao Nguyen

Guo Wengui, an exiled Chinese billionaire known for his criticism of the Chinese Communist Party and close ties with American conservatives, was convicted by a U.S. jury on Tuesday of defrauding his online followers of hundreds of millions of dollars.

Guo, who went by multiple aliases such as "Miles Kwok" and "Ho Wan Kwok," garnered a substantial online following through his  YouTube videos  in which he criticized the Chinese communist government. Federal prosecutors in Manhattan accused Guo of raising more than $1 billion by guaranteeing his thousands of followers that they would not lose money if they invested in his various business and cryptocurrency schemes.

Prosecutors said Guo used the money to fund his lavish lifestyle, such as purchasing a New Jersey mansion, a red Lamborghini and a yacht. Following a seven-week trial, Guo was convicted Tuesday of nine of 12 criminal counts he faced, including racketeering conspiracy and wire fraud.

He faces decades in prison, according to U.S. Attorney Damian Williams. U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres set his sentencing for Nov. 19.

"Miles Guo, an exiled Chinese businessman and purported billionaire, brazenly operated several interrelated fraud schemes, all designed to fleece his loyal followers out of their hard-earned money so that Guo could spend his days in his 50,000 square foot mansion, driving his $1 million Lamborghini, or lounging on his $37 million yacht," Williams said in a statement.

"Thousands of Guo’s online followers were victimized so that Guo could live of a life of excess," Williams added. "Today, Guo’s schemes have been put to an end."

$1 billion dollar fraud conspiracy lasted several years

Guo was arrested in March 2023 in New York after federal authorities accused him of operating a "sprawling and complex scheme" between 2018 and 2023, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York. He was initially charged with 12 criminal counts, including wire fraud, securities fraud, bank fraud, and money laundering.

Prosecutors said Guo, along with his business partner Kin Ming Je, solicited more than $1 billion of investments in various entities and ventures through false statements and representations. The scheme involved lying to victims about their investments and promising them "outsized returns" if they provided money to Guo's multiple entities, including GTV Media, the Himalaya Farm Alliance, G|CLUBS, and the Himalaya Exchange, according to prosecutors.

During the trial, prosecutor Juliana Murray said Guo used the illicit funds as his "personal piggy bank" to maintain his lavish lifestyle in the United States. During his closing argument last week, prosecutor Ryan Finkel played videos of Guo pitching investments, including several in which Guo stood on a yacht deck.

Guo and Je laundered the money to multiple bank accounts and made expensive purchases such as a 50,000 square foot New Jersey mansion, a custom Bugatti sports car for $4.4 million, a Ferrari worth $3.5 million, a $37 million luxury yacht and a $62,000 television, according to prosecutors. Guo also purchased furniture and decorative items, including Chinese and Persian rugs worth about $978,000.

Je, a dual citizen of Hong Kong and the United Kingdom, is still at large, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Je was charged 11 of the same charges as Guo but faces an additional 20 years maximum in prison for obstruction of justice.

Federal authorities also arrested and charged a co-conspirator of Guo and Je in March 2023. Yanping Wang, also known as "Yvette Wang," was charged with wire fraud, securities fraud, and money laundering, according to a complaint.

Who is Guo Wengui?

The business tycoon was once believed to be among the richest people in China, The Associated Press reported. Guo left China in late 2014 and came to the U.S. seeking asylum, accusing Chinese officials of corruption.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said Guo has resided in the United States since around 2015 and gained a large online following that "aligned with his purported policy objectives in China and who were also inclined to believe (Guo's) statements regarding investment and money-making opportunities." CNN reported that Guo had amassed his followers through livestreaming events.

In 2017, Guo's lawyer told The New York Times that the billionaire was seeking asylum because his criticism of Chinese officials made him "a political opponent of the Chinese regime." Guo's assets were seized by the governments of China and Hong Kong in 2017 during money laundering investigations, according to CNN.

Guo was also an ally of Steve Bannon, a one-time adviser to former President Donald Trump. During the trial, Finkel showed jurors Bannon promoting one of Guo's ventures at a news conference in 2018, Reuters reported.

Bannon was arrested in August 2020 on Guo's yacht in an unrelated fraud case and was later pardoned by Trump. He was then  convicted  in 2022 for defying a subpoena from the House committee that investigated the  Capitol attack on Jan. 6, 2021 .

Bannon began his four-month prison sentence earlier this month.
