Redskins Owner Daniel Snyder Bought $100 Million Yacht with IMAX Theater

Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder will soon receive a “superyacht” he purchased from Dutch company Feadship for over $100 million, which features the world’s first floating private IMAX movie theater.

Rupert Neate of The Guardian reported details of the 305-foot boat Friday, highlight by a “helipad, four VIP suites and facilities that cater to a wide range of sports, including golf, basketball, volleyball and football.”

The yacht, which is scheduled for a spring delivery, is named the Lady S.

Adding the IMAX cost an additional $3 million, per Neate. Ed Beckett, who works for Burgess, a British company that helped develop the boat. He told The Guardian there were a lot of hurdles to jump to make the request possible.

“You couldn’t have sound from the IMAX drifting into the cabins next door and, more importantly, you couldn’t have the sound of the engines or vibrations coming into the IMAX,” he said. “If they did we would not get the certification from IMAX—and that was the most important thing for the owner.”

The ship also has a helipad, four VIP suites, and two state-of-the-art 8K HDTVs.
