‘Tiger Woods pulled up and asked to trade boats. I respectfully declined’: Golfing legend causes a stir as he moors his $20m yacht ‘Privacy’ in marina ahead of the US Open

  • Tiger Woods moored his 155ft yacht at Gurney’s Montauk marina in Hamptons
  • He will be staying on the 6,500sqft vessel as he competes in the U.S. Open
  • Ship dwarfed small boats in the small marina, which locals joked about online
  • Privacy has room for 21 people and features a huge hot tub, gym, and theatre 

Tiger Woods doesn’t need a hotel while he chases his fourth U.S. Open title – he brought his own $20 million pad.

The star golfer docked his 155ft yacht Privacy at the Gurney’s Montauk Yacht Club marina in the Hamptons ahead of the tournament in June 14.

Privacy dwarfed the dozens of small vessels moored in the sleepy harbor about an hour’s drive from Shinnecock Hills where the Open is held.

The dark wood is a theme throughout the yacht’s furnishings along with walls covered in white silk and upholstered leather furniture.

Woods tried to sell the yacht, which has entertained friends including Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, and Michael Jordan, in 2011 but couldn’t find a buyer.
