Prices in order to charter the yacht to charter are unavailable to the general public and information is only revealed through discreet inquiries.
It is currently owned by Ukrainian billionaire and financial services guru RInat Akhmetov – who is the 327nd richest man in the world with a net worth of $7.5B.
The boat underwent a top-to-bottom refit in 2019 and is now on the market for sale and charters by Dynamiq Brokerage.
The owners of the boat describe the vessel to have ‘discretion and privacy at the very heart of the design’.
The construction is such that it manages to conceal the vast amount of space inside. Guests are easily able to be shielded from prying eyes, should they so desire.
The couple flew in on the equivalent in aviation luxury as they took an 11 hour flight from from LAX in Los Angeles direct to Nice on board Bombardier’s $72million Global 7500 aircraft, arriving around lunchtime on Friday in the South of France.
No private jet can match the Global 7500 for range – it can cover 8,860 miles without refueling.
The plane is not just big on fuel capacity, it’s big on luxury too and can be customized to include a plush double bed and a stand-up shower – along with seats that Bombardier claims are revolutionary as standard.
Bombardier’s designers were able to produce a layout that’s an industry first – a cabin with four separate living spaces (a club suite, conference suite with a table for six, an entertainment suite and a lounge suite) and a dedicated crew suite and kitchen.
In total, it can accommodate 19 passengers.
When the couple arrived by private jet in the Riviera on Saturday, an executive shuttle service whisked them to the waiting yacht.
The couple flew in from Los Angeles, where Lopez was spotted sporting a beaming smile outside her offices in West Hollywood earlier this week.
Meanwhile, the potential for an awkward encounter hung in the air, after JLo’s ex Alex Rodriguez was spotted in the exact same area on Friday, cavorting with a bevy of bikini-clad women on a different yacht.
Rodriguez and Lopez officially ended their four-year relationship in March, before she rekindled her romance with Affleck – whom she previously dated back in the early 2000s.
Affleck and Lopez now appear to have fully rekindled their romance, after going ‘official’ in a photo from actress Leah Remini’s Instagram that showed them sweetly cuddling on July 15.

Earlier this week it was claimed by People that she is ‘madly in love’ with on-again beau Affleck and feels they will be together from now on.
The couple have quickly fallen back in love after reuniting just months ago, with a source telling E! News that the celebrity couple is ‘fully committed to each other,’ although they’ve both agreed they aren’t in a rush to get married again.
‘They have been meshing their lives and families and don’t feel the need to get engaged yet or even tie the knot. They have both been there and don’t feel it’s necessary,’ a second insider explained to the outlet.
The couple flew in on a Bombardier Global 7500 – a revolutionary, luxury private jet costing around $200,000. The jet can cover 8,860 miles without refueling and it can be configured to include a double bed (pictured)
The plane has only been in service since 2018 but is top of the range when it comes to luxury and on board amenities
Every seat has an extra-large window and the ambient lighting simulates daylight across time zones to encourage sleeping patterns that will keep jet lag at bay
Entertainment on board is top drawer. Even the standard configuration comes with a TV suite (pictured) that contains a 4K 40-inch high-definition screen, high fidelity speakers and a three-seat divan
The bathroom that comes with the plane is a cut above the average plane toilet
Bombardier’s designers were able to produce a layout that’s an industry first – a cabin with four separate living spaces
‘The Global 7500 business jet has proven itself as the highest-performing aircraft in the industry and promises to revolutionize the market and significantly change the business aviation landscape,’ says Michel Ouellette, Senior Vice President, Global 7500 and Global 8000 Program

‘Bennifer’ is back – and a source says they are ‘madly in love’ and want to ‘make this work’ after getting back together
‘They want to do everything they can to make this work,’ added the source. ‘They are madly in love.’
And it was stressed that Affleck, who has been through rehab, thinks Lopez – who does not drink alcohol, works out regularly and eats healthy – is a good influence on him.
‘She’s wonderful for him,’ said the source.
Lopez’s twins Max and Emme, 13 – whose dad is Latin crooner Marc Anthony – are believed to still be getting to know the former Batman star as he woos their mom.

Meanwhile, ‘Bennifer’ appeared far from ARod’s mind as he soaked up the sun with a bevy of bikini-clad beauties in St. Tropez on Friday — perhaps unaware that the new couple would soon be descending on the area.
The MLB legend, who is set to celebrate his 46th birthday next week, frolicked with the stunning women as they sailed aboard a lavish yacht.
At one point, the ex-Yankees star was rinsing off beneath an outdoor shower with two of the glamorous ladies after using an inflatable slide set up on the side of the vessel.
If Rodriguez is still heartbroken by the split with Lopez, he has come up with the perfect plans to distract himself.
According to Page Six, Rodriguez and his entourage will be spending several more weeks in Europe.

The group will be traveling to Monte Carlo and Ibiza, and there will no doubt be a number of attractive women vying for Rodriguez’s affection, given that he is now an eligible bachelor.
ARod’s yacht outing comes just days after Lopez’s friend Leah Remini posted photos to social media from her 51st birthday party in which the singer and Affleck were seen snuggled up together in a photobooth.
In the black and white photo, Lopez is seen pressing her body against Affleck’s with one hand on the actor and director’s chest.
She stared at the camera with a fierce glare as if to say ‘hands off, he’s mine’.
Affleck posed with one arm wrapped around his girlfriend, pulling her close.
