It has a price tag that your average oligarch would baulk at.

But somebody splashed the cash leasing a 240ft-long, €120m yacht which docked in Kinsale, Co Cork yesterday.

The Grace E — which costs a cool €700,000 a week to hire — comes with an open air jacuzzi, a sauna, a gym, a hydrotherapy bath, and a pool.

It is not known who is on board the luxurious vessel.

Built in 2013 in Italy, she also has a beauty salon, a meditation room, a sun- bathing area, and a massage room, and sleeps 12 guests in six suites.

Grace E comes with a crew of 20, a cruising speed of 14.5 knots and various watersport options from powerboats to kayaks.

If that isn’t enough to entertain you, there is also a film library, satellite TV, iPod docking stations, and wifi internet access.

The yacht even boasts a sushi bar on the upper deck.

Five-deck Grace E is managed for charter by Burgess but is believed to be owned by Florida-based coffee billionaire Bob Stiller.

Mr Stiller made his fortune selling coffee and K cups, the now ubiquitous single serve coffee pods.

The Grace E is a breathtaking displacement vessel, built by the prominent Italian shipyard, Perini Navi.

The yacht boasts naval architecture by Philippe Briand and exterior styling by Vitruvius Yachts.

Main features of the yacht include a five-person guest elevator serving four decks, as well as its ultra-luxurious accommodation in spacious staterooms.

The Grace E has many innovations to reduce her footprint on the areas she will visit, from systems to mitigate the exhaust fumes to those for trash management and storage. She is known as the “greener” superyacht.

Boasting a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, the 73m Vitruvius yacht Grace E (hull C.2189) is run by twin diesel-electric engines, reaching a top speed of 16.5 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots.

The luxurious crew quarters include a 70sq m lounge.

The yacht won Motor Yacht of the Year at the World Superyacht Awards 2015.

The yacht is low profile yet she rises five decks high.

She is anything but deceptive in her performance, capable of crossing an ocean more than once on a tank of fuel.

With a fuel capacity just shy of 49,000 gallons, Grace E can explore further and farther than many of her contemporaries.

She can cruise at between 10 and 15 knots for as far as 7,500 nautical miles without requiring a re-fuel.

The famed French designer Remi Tessier conceived Grace E’s contemporary and relaxed interiors, which emphasise the use of light- coloured wood and leather finishes, as well as onyx, ebony, and stainless steel.
