Built in 1977, Bowie owned the hulking vessel throughout the 1980s, using it to travel from country to country while on tour, as the Brit was famously terrified of flying for the first half of his life.

The Starman singer had an affinity for all things outer space, and it’s thought that’s why, while under Bowie’s stewardship, the boat was named the Deneb Star.

Found in the constellation of Cygnus, the Deneb Star is the 19 brightest star in all of the night’s sky.

It’s believed Bowie off-loaded the ocean-traversing mansion following the conquering of his aerophobia, which was thought to occur at the end of the ’80s.

Now named El Caran or The Face when translated from Spanish, the mega-yacht was completely refurbished in 2020, which included a respray and new teak deck.

Spanning nearly 40 metres in length, the Bennetti built watercraft features two engines producing 695 horsepower, which equates to a top speed of 12 knots and a total cruising range of 3000 nautical miles.

Features of the exceedingly opulent mode of transportation include a grand master suite, six guest rooms, high-speed internet access and an arresting sky lounge.

$7.28 million may seem like a preposterous amount of dough for most, but for the discerning (and well-heeled) Bowie megafan, this mega-yacht is surely a bargain.
