Speculation is rife about the mystery owner of a $100 million superyacht docked at the Port River in Adelaide.

The yacht – named The Felix – boasts spas, beautiful bedrooms, an elevator, gym, cinema and helicopter pad for its high-profile guests.

The ship was previously owned by a French billionare Bernard Arnault and known as Amadeus. 

Valued at $100 million when it was sold to a mystery owner in 2016, it was renamed Felix and can host at least 12 guests in six cabins plus 18 crew members.

City of Adelaide clipper ship volunteer Jill Maden told Daily Mail Australia the ship was originally built in 1998 as a German research vessel called Komet.

‘I don’t know who currently owns her but apparently she’s based in the Caribbean and is hired out for private charters,’ she said. 

‘She has a crew of 18 and currently has eight guests on board.’ 

Ms Maden said she’d been told by a passerby the owner used to belong to Kerry Packer but added: ‘Apparently that’s not true’.
