The tiny island nation of St Barts once again played host to celebrities, business icons and the world’s largest yachts to celebrate New Year’s Eve 2011.
With fireworks bursting overhead, many revelers made their way to the £59 million island estate of Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich for his annual party. Estimated to cost £5 million (about $7.7 million US Dollars), the star-studded event featured a live performance by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Many stayed on the Russian’s 536 foot superyacht ECLIPSE – the world’s largest private yacht with two helicopter pads, a submarine, and two swimming pools. Other yachts anchored in the harbor or along the quay included the 377 foot motor yacht LUNA, Feadship yacht charter motor yacht DREAM, and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen motor yacht TATOOSH.
Some of the A-list celebrities and guests seen on yachts, and in restaurants and clubs included Star Wars creator George Lucas, designer Marc Jacobs, singer Jon Bon Jovi, media tycoon Rupert Murdoch, and music mogul Russell Simmons and his Australian actress-girlfriend, Melissa George.
Revelers on yachts came ashore in tenders, before being whisked off in chauffeured cars to the various parties taking place across the island.
