Coffee to go – Starbucks ex-chief’s luxury yacht docks in St George’s
A $120 million luxury superyacht owned by the former head of global coffee giants Starbucks has found a vacation berth in Bermuda.
Pi, a 254ft-long yacht, was spotted docked in St George’s yesterday.
The superyacht is owned by Howard Schultz, who ran Starbucks as the chief executive officer and chairman between 1986 and 2017.
Mr Schultz has a net worth of $5.2 billion and he is credited with turning the company from a Seattle-based company to into an international corporation and the world’s largest coffee house chain.
Pi, originally named Syzygy 818, was constructed in the Netherlands in 2019 by shipbuilders Feadship and designed by Jarkko Jämsén of Finnish group Avian.
She has a top speed of 18 knots, a crew of 18 and can carry 12 passengers.
Pi also comes equipped with a “touch and go” helicopter pad and a glass-bottomed swimming pool.
The $120 million superyacht was originally built for Robert Friedland, an American-Canadian billionaire financier in the mining industry.
