THE PLAYERS Championship roster as of Friday, March 4 at 5 p.m. ET: He is among the most successful sportsmen of all time, as well as one of the richest in the world.

Tiger Woods usually calls it “my dinghy” even though everything looks like a dinghy: with a cruising speed of 18 knots, it also has an onboard gym where the golfer continues to train. Woods, in fact, prefers to stay on this yacht during tournaments held in New York.
With cherry wood interiors, Privacy also boasts a three-person elevator, a huge jacuzzi, big enough to seat eight, and the inevitable cinema room and bar area.

The luxury is also complemented by three jet skis and two scooters for short shore excursions. Obviously, all this has a price: privacy costs 17 million euros and its annual maintenance amounts to 1.7 million euros.
