Pleasure cruise aboard the ultimate rich man’s toy

If Roman Abramovich thinks he is getting a slice of the action with his £500m investment in Chelsea, perhaps he should take a look at Larry Ellison’s toys. That is because Ellison, who with £10.6bn is 11th on the Forbes list of the world’s richest people, compared with Abramovich’s 16th, actually gets to be part of his America’s Cup yacht-racing team. Every day Ellison clambers down from his super-yacht, Rising Sun, which at 450ft long is bigger than any in Abramovich’s three-yacht fleet, to go racing aboard USA-98.
