Leonardo DiCaprio watches World Cup from fifth largest superyacht

World famous Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio has been spotted watching the 2014 football World Cup in Brazil. According to reports, the star of the recent film Wolf of Wall Street along with over 20 friends is currently using M/Y Topaz (147m), which is berthed in Rio de Janeiro.

M/Y Topaz, said to be worth over 400 million pounds, is owned Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who is the deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emitates and owner and massive fan of Yeovil Town FC. The luxury superyacht is the fifth largest superyacht in the world having been custom made for Sheikh Mansour in 2012. 

DiCaprio reportedly attended the opening game of the World Cup between Brazil and Croatia in Sao Paolo and was spotted in the stadium for Germany’s clash with Portugal on 18th June in Salvador. Unsurprisingly the star tried to keep a low profile as he watched the opening game of tournament, seen wearing a Brazil scarf around his neck, sunglasses and a hat.

Constructed by German shipyard Lurssen, M/Y Topaz boasts the ultimate in luxury facilities including a helicopter landing platform, tender garages, swimming pools, a fitness hall, cinema and large conference room. Though very little else is known about the interiors and facilities on the superyacht, its exterior was designed by famous British designer Tim Heywood.

It’s not the first time that the 39-year-old actor has been on board the luxury vessel, with reports DiCaprio threw an 80s-themed party on board in mid-April for 100 guests, which included Jamie Foxx and Orlando Bloom.
