20 Outrageous Athlete Rides

Tiger Woods

Ride: "Privacy" yacht, 2004

In 2004, Tiger Woods purchased a 155-foot-long mega-yacht as a wedding gift for his then-wife Elin Nordegren. A floating symbol of wealth, the $20 million "Privacy" is built out of material based on a fiberglass composite. Amenities include an eight-person Jacuzzi, two Vespa scooters, two kayaks, three SeaDoos, and a fitness center.

Tiger initially purchased the yacht when it was only 70 percent complete, so that he could dictate specific custom touches to the final product. Due to Tiger's troubles and subsequent divorce, Elin returned "Privacy" to him because she wasn't keen on paying the $2 million annual upkeep for the yacht. Tiger put it on the market for $25 million.
