MMA champion Conor McGregor has posted thrilling footage of his first spin in his new £2.9 million superyacht, one of only 63 on the planet. Watch below:
McGregor splashed out on the Lamborghini Technomar superyacht back in 2021, but took delivery of his new toy over the weekend.
The top-end yacht can reach speeds of up to 70mph, with two 4,000 horsepower V12 engines, MMA Mania reports.
It also comes kitted out with a fully operational kitchen, dining room, bedroom and bathroom.
Not content with simply having one of the fanciest yachts money can buy, McGregor also reportedly spent a further $500,000 (£390,000) on customisation, mostly on branding the boat with his whisky brand Proper 12.
To this end, the Lambo is the 12th boat produced in the run of 63.
Some of the boat’s raw power was on display in thrilling footage, showing McGregor at the helm of the boat in a questionable hat as it whizzes across the sea.
McGregor previously told MMA journalist Aaron Bronsteter the superyacht was the best purchase he’d ever made, Sunday World reports.
He said: “It's currently in Italy at the minute. It's ready for post-fight. I've a bit of work to be done after this bout, across the United States, and then I go to Italy.
"I'm going to christen my son in Italy with the family and some friends, and then I'm going to pick up my Lamborghini yacht.
“It's some vessel so I'm really excited to get into it and rally it around. I look forward to setting records on it also."
Announcing that he was finally ready to pick up the boat, he posted a picture of his daughter Croia with the caption: “Today is the day!!
"We officially take ownership of our brand new Lamborghini Sport Yacht!
"But first.. the most important meal of the day.”
This comes after McGregor had a war of words with YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul over social media following the historic fight between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano.
Following the fight, McGregor chose to lay into Paul's choice of eyewear of all things, writing on Twitter: "Who the f*** is this jackass in the pink Jimmy Savile glasses?"
Paul, less the impressed to be mentioned in the same sentence as a notorious paedophile, shot back: "I'm the one who has done more for fighters than you ever have; the one who has won five fights in the past two years while you have lost five.
"The one who isn’t owned by Dana White, the one who made the fight you just watched happen, the one who got your hero Katie Taylor paid, that’s who."
Rumours of an eventual Paul v McGregor fight continue to swirl, and all this online bickering will only build up anticipation.
