SAY IT AIN’T SO

Should we believe the reports?  If so, there’s trouble in Paradis for Captain Jack Sparrow.     

 

JOHNNY DEPP AND VANESSA PARADIS

People Magazine reports Hollywood A-lister Johnny Depp is in hot water. He and his love of 14 years, singer Vanessa Paradis, are calling it quits.  According to People, Depp, 48, and the Chanel model, 39, have not been in public together for more than a year.

 

CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW, YACHT OWNER

To the movie-going public, Depp is a star.  He is best known for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow. The pirate is the central protagonist of the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise.  In the yachting industry, the actor is more familiar.  For instance, he is the celebrity owner of a charteryacht often cruising the Bahamas.

This week’s office water-cooler question: will the split lead Depp to rename his Bahama yacht charters motor yacht, VaJoLiRoJa?

They are casually dressed. He is wearing green shorts, a light blue sleeveless t-shirt that shows his arm tattoo, and a bandana on his head. She is wearing a pink long-sleeved shirt, and her hair is pulled back in a ponytail. The yacht is white with brown shiny wood interior.

BOAT NAME

The boat’s clever name comes from combining the first few letters of each family member’s name, partner Vanessa Paradis, Johnny, and their kids, Lily-Rose and Jack. 

 

JOLLY ROGER

If Johnny drops Vanessa, can we assume the multi-syllabic boat name will shed its current first syllable – leaving us with JoLiRoJa?  We kind of like that – if you say it fast enough it sounds like, “Jolly Roger”  — a perfect name for this 156 foot yacht of distinctive character.

 

VAJOLIROJA

But wait, what if it’s Vanessa forcing Johnny to, “Walk the plank?”  If she keeps custody of the yacht, the new name could be VaJoLiRoJa.   Has a nice sound to it – kinda rolls off the tongue…

 

PROPOSED YACHT NAME

Perhaps the best name for the yacht is RANSOM, as in Depp’s reported $300 gross profit sharing booty from Disney’s Pirates movie franchise.

Famous Superyacht Owner Says He Makes Stupid Money

Johnny Depp, yacht owner

A well known owner of a Mediterranean yacht charter vessel charges nearly €100,000 per week to rent his yacht, but it is his day job that brings him vast sums of money.

Actor Johnny Depp, owner of the 156′ motor yacht VAJOLIROJA, opens up about his staggering paychecks in the November issue of Vanity Fair magazine.

“Basically, if they’re going to pay me the stupid money right now, I’m going to take it,” he admits in the magazine article.  “I have to. I mean, it’s not for me. Do you know what I mean? At this point, it’s for my kids. It’s ridiculous, yeah, yeah. But ultimately is it for me? No. No. It’s for the kids.”

Depp has shot to the top of the list of Hollywood’s highest paid actors, thanks to the stellar success of Disney‘s Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise.   While Depp is mum on the size of his Pirates “ransom,” a recent report puts his total take in the $300 million range, due to a gross-profit-sharing deal brokered with Disney. To date, the four-film franchise has tallied $3.7 billion in worldwide receipts, and Depp is slated to star in a 5th installment.

He is smiling and holding an old-fashioned pistol up by his chin. The words, 75 $ million, are written over the top of the photos.

Johnny Depp yacht, ValJoLiRoJa

It’s believed Depp’s passion for the sea, and his purchase of a mega yacht charter vessel stems from his years of filming the Pirates movies in exotic locales such as the Bahamas.  His yacht, motor yacht VaJoLiRoJa — the boat’s clever name comes from combining the first few letters of each family member’s name, partner Vanessa Paradis, Johnny, and their kids, Lily-Rose and Jack — is a 156 foot yacht of distinctive character, inspired by the classic gentleman’s yachts of the 1930’s. 

The lavishly-styled interior evokes the romance and glamour of a bygone era (with a few pirate-themed hints throughout).
