Big sailing fans, the couple’s yacht was the largest sailing yacht in the world at the time she was built in 1976, and held this title until 2004! Benefitting from a  $17 million investment into refitting her, she still looks great.

Phocea can can accommodate up to 12 guests and features a gym on board. She definitely rivals any 5-star hotel on land – just check out her dining room!

The yacht costs over $200,000 to rent…per week! Which sound a lot to most of us, but is not much of a stretch to Tom, whose net worth was estimated at a cool $350 million (in 2014).

Tom and Rita were spotted stopping by the small island of Antiparo in Greece before they travelled to Turkey to continue their 5-star vacation. The couple married in 1988 and have two sons together, Chet and Truman Theodore.

Life looks pretty rosy for the Hanks family!
