Did Bono Buy The Cyan?
Several sources are reporting that Bono, the charismatic and charity-minded lead singer of U2 has picked up a new toy, the yacht Cyan. The Cyan, formerly known as the Renalo, was built in 1997 by Codecasa yachts and went through a major refit in 1997. The 140-foot yacht has six cabins with room for 12 guests. Other features include an on-deck Jacuzzi, swim platform and a garage full of water toys. The Belfast Telegraph reports that Bono, his wife Ali Hewson, and their children vacationed on the yacht last summer.
The Cyan charters for between €140,000 and €175,000. It was not listed as being for sale but the estimated asking price is expected to be over €15m. Reports in the Italian media say Bono has repainted the yacht in blue and put in a new stereo system. Pictures of the Cyan from her charter listing are in the gallery below.
