Kirsty Bertarelli, a songwriter and former Miss UK who recently became the wealthiest woman in Britain, just bought a superyacht for a staggering $100 million, according to the Daily Mail (via Haute Living).

The vessel, which Kirsty bought with husband Ernesto Bertarelli, is the 33rd largest yacht in the world and has a helicopter landing pad, lavish guest cabins and four boats to carry passengers to shore.

Called the Vava II, the ship took over 200 craftsmen over two years to complete.

The Bertarellis are no strangers to the sea. At 96 meters, Vava II replaces their old 47-meter ship, called Vava, the DM reports.

Ernesto, a Swiss pharmaceuticals heir, has twice won the America’s Cup yacht race.

Together, the pair is worth about $11 billion.
