Yacht Like Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck

Well, if an award goes to best traveled, it’s got to go to Bennifer 2.0. Among other awards, like “couple we’re cheering for the most” and “wow, how the heck did that happen?” trophy. But we digress. These two just crushed it this year in travel and they’ve only been back together for four months. Here are the details on their yacht vacation, so you, too, can travel like Jen and Ben.

A Summer Cruise on the Med

When you’re in the middle of a pandemic or the hottest it couple right now, you want some privacy. So naturally, the couple took to a mega-yacht for their vacation. But even being physically offshore didn’t deter the paps from snapping pics of the two lounging on deck. Yeah, we all saw that pic of J.Lo’s 52nd birthday tribute that made them Instagram official. But some things are just photo worthy. Especially a $130 million boat.

You’re on a (Big) Boat

The 280-foot Valerie, which J.Lo was the first to charter, used to be the vacation toy of a Ukrainian billionaire. Until the Valerie finds a new owner, the stunning superyacht will be available to rent from Dynamiq Sales & Charter, who also happen to be the brokers in search of a new owner. If this is too much of an investment to buy, the Valerie can be rented for $1.12 million per week.

The Details

And there’s no doubt why Bennifer 2.0 chose this yacht. Designed by esteemed architect Espen Øino, the Valerie is considered one of his most beautiful boats. Rest assured, there are no cramped quarters on board. At 2,775 gross tons, the Valerie has nine cabins for up to 17 guests. And of course, a magnificent master suite.

A Small Army

The crew of 27 takes care of everything. You have your own chef to cook a feast, and therapists to run the private wellness room. The upper deck features two full-size pools and a helipad. Inside, the leather-lined elevator has details like butterfly-inlaid brass. Meanwhile, elements like the $100,000 Schimmel Pegasus grand piano are made for late-night sing-alongs.

The 7 1/2-foot floors ensure that full-size windows give complete ocean views. A patio dining area for up to 14 allows everyone to eat and enjoy the scenery together. The Valerie is a spectacular show of luxury. The art deco interiors are designed by Reymond Langton. J.Lo looks like she does for a reason; there’s also Technogym and hammam spa. So for a cool mil or so, you, too, can vacation like Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck.
