  • Ulysses, owned by New Zealander business tycoon Graeme Hart, stopped on the Costa after crossing the Mediterranean from Montenegro

At 116 metres in length and with a capacity for 66 people, Ulysses was an imposing figure in Malaga port on Sunday.

Considered one of the most luxurious private cruisers in the world, this spectacular mega yacht, valued at more than 200 million euros, was moored in the port's Muelle 2 for 24 hours for a technical provisioning stopover after crossing the Mediterranean from the marina of Tivat (Montenegro).

The ship is rented out by the week and to get an idea of the fortune required to do so, among its most illustrious past guests is the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg.

The ship, which was built in 2018 on behalf of New Zealand business tycoon Graeme Hart, is usually berthed in Gibraltar according to the Marine Traffic ship tracking website and sails the seas under the flag of the Cayman Islands. It boasts a helicopter and a 'modest' 24-metre yacht, as well as a 4x4 vehicle, several boats and a hangar where there is space for jet skis and other 'toys' to have fun at sea such as, paddleboards, flyboards or wakeboards.

It has seven decks which between them have a swimming pool and a jacuzzi. In addition, it has a cinema, a wine cellar and different rooms to ensure you have an enjoyable stay.
