MAN UTD'S potential new owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe owns a breathtaking £130million yacht.
The Red Devils' current chiefs, the Glazers, have put the club up for sale after confirming they are "exploring strategic alternatives".
It was revealed on Tuesday that lifelong Man Utd fan Ratcliffe has formally launched a takeover attempt.
And SunSport has now taken the opportunity to look at the incredible yacht he owns – which is around 78 metres in length and can cater for up to 14 guests.
Within the huge water vessel, named Hampshire II, is a beach club at the rear featuring terraces and views of the ocean plus a helipad.
It is a breathtaking boat fit for the UK's richest man – who is believed to be worth around £15billion.

The yacht also includes posh bathrooms and delightful bedrooms, as well as a wonderful dining room and huge living area.
Ratcliffe first revealed he was interested in Man Utd last summer.
A spokesperson back then said: "If the club is for sale, Jim is definitely a potential buyer.
"If something like this was possible, we would be interested in talking with a view to long-term ownership.

"This is not about the money that has been spent or not spent.
"Jim is looking at what can be done now and, knowing how important the club is to the city, it feels like the time is right for a reset."
Ratcliffe is a petrochemicals tycoon who at his peak was worth around £21billion.
He runs multi-billion-pound chemicals giant Ineos, which owns French club Nice, Swiss side Lausanne, plus a third of Formula One team Mercedes.
Ratcliffe also made a last-gasp bid to buy Chelsea back in May, although his £4.25billion offer was rejected.
His intention was to create a "very fine club in London" at Stamford Bridge.
But the club was eventually sold to Todd Boehly, who has not been afraid to splash the cash during his short time in charge.
Now Ratcliffe, who is a boyhood United fan, is attempting to reignite his bid for Premier League ownership by staking a claim to take over from the Glazers.
