GoPro founder Nick Woodman likes to tell the story of how the first GoPro camera was inspired by a surfing trip. Now, the billionaire CEO is upgrading his water toys to include a megayacht.
According to people familiar with the matter, Woodman has ordered a 180-foot yacht from Dutch yacht-builder Amels. The boat, expected to be delivered in 2017, is four decks high and comes with a Jacuzzi pool, swim platform, sweeping sun decks and dining areas.
It's unclear exactly how much Woodman is paying for the boat. But a typical 180-foot Amels yacht sells for $35 million to $40 million. The yachtmaker declined comment, citing its strict client confidentiality policy. Woodman also declined comment.
