Does Tiger Woods need a bigger boat? His yacht Privacy is dwarfed by others in Bahamas

USA Today Sports 1 week ago

Tiger Woods traveled by yacht to the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas this week.

Yes, that would be the $20 million luxury vessel dubbed Privacy.

Woods, who bought the boat in 2004, has taken it around the world, including the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills in New York.

Now, it's parked in the Bahamas, which is not surprising.

What might be surprising is how this 6,500-square-foot craft is dwarfed by other boats in dock. The one on the far left is Tiger's.

The Golf Channel's Dan Hicks quipped that it "might be time for Tiger to trade that in" when comparing Privacy to other absurdly large and much more expensive watercraft.

Notah Begay, a longtime friend of Woods who has been aboard Privacy, joked, "I'm from New Mexico. I don't see many of these things."

Big boat

Privacy sleeps between 10 and 12, has a crew of nine and reportedly costs $2 million a year to operate.

It includes:

  • Large deck bar
  • Eight-person Jacuzzi
  • Scuba-tank fill station
  • Inflatable decompression chamber
  • Cherry woodwork in the interior
  • VIP stateroom with two queen size cabin amidships and a twin cabin
  • Gym with a treadmill, exercise bike and free weights
  • Three-person elevator
  • Theater

Privacy has a 4,000-mile range thanks to a 12,000-gallon fuel tank, and can travel at a maximum speed of 17 knots.
