    NECKER BELLE yacht richard branson
    Since 2010, Richard Branson has rented out his luxury catamaran whenever he's not using it to cruise the waters surrounding his private island retreat.
    That's coming to an end — the "Necker Belle" is up for sale, according to Yacht Charter Fleet. So if you want to spend a week on the luxurious catamaran without buying the whole thing, now is the time to act.
    There's room for 12 people on board, if you put two guests in the queen bed in the saloon, and another two on the "comfy relaxation area" on the upper deck — outside. You can spend your days sun bathing, scuba diving, wake boarding, or chilling out and watching movies.
    The weekly rate for a cruise in the Caribbean is $110,000, or you can spend $12,500 for the day. There's also an extra 25% advanced provisioning allowance, to cover expenses like food, fuel, port fees, customs, electricity, and drinks.The Necker Belle catamaran was designed for Branson's extended family, so there's plenty of room on board.
    It cruises the Caribbean year round.
    There are four cabins on board.
    They're not the fanciest yacht accommodations we've seen, but they're quite nice.
    Each has a flat screen TV, DVD player, and iPod docking station.
    A hair dryer, toiletries, and lip balm are all provided.
    And each cabin has an en-suite bathroom.
    There's room for two more guests in the saloon, on the converted queen bed with a privacy screen.
    If you want to put 12 people on board, two will have to take on the "adventure of sleeping outdoors under the stars on the comfy relaxation area" on the upper deck.

    If you're certified, you can go scuba diving. If not, the Necker Belle's water sports expert can provide half day or 2-4 day courses to guests 10 years old and up.
    There's plenty of space outside to relax and get a tan.
    The yacht's chef makes whatever you want to eat.
    The Necker Belle comes with a speed boat that can hit 40 knots (46 mph) so you can water ski or wake board.
    If you don't feel like game fishing, plop down on the couch and enjoy a movie.
    Hang out in the pilot house, with big windows facing ahead.
    Or steer the Necker Belle from the deck and enjoy the sea air.
    If you've got an extra $110,000, now is the time to book a week on the Necker Belle, before it's too late.
    Now check out a different kind of luxury.
