Global music superstar Rihanna is holidaying on board the 52-metre Benetti Latitude – and excitedly sharing snaps of herself and her friends through Twitter.

The 2008-built superyacht is hosting the Barbados-born singer and two of her friends in Sardinia, and while most superyacht guests relish the privacy afforded by a charter, the outlandish star is happily sharing her excitement with her 22.7 million followers.

 Latitude’s features include an elevator, private outdoor areas and sundeck gym. With exteriors by Stefano Natucci and interiors designed by Mauro Izzo and Benetti’s in-house team, she sleeps 12 guests and has a crew of 13.

Rihanna’s hits include ‘Umbrella’ and ‘Disturbia’, and she is mentored (and was initially managed) by rapper and record entrepreneur Jay-Z, who has chartered superyachts including the Proteksan Odessa and the Pendennis-refitted Va Bene with his wife Beyoncé Knowles.

The yacht is no stranger to celebrity guests: in this interview with Superyacht World, captain Paul Bickley tells us about one film star guest’s unusual request.
