Billionaire James Packer Selling His New 55m/180ft Superyacht Because it’s ‘too small’

EJI superyacht

James Packer’s superyacht EJI could be all yours for $47,929,000 million.

The Australian billionaire has put his brand new 55-metre luxury yacht EJI, on which he has spent the recent European summer on the market, just four months he took delivery of it.

Mr Packer’s friends said the four-decked yacht is simply ‘too small’, Fairfax Media reported.

The news comes just five weeks Mr Packer and girlfriend New York socialite Kylie Lim entertained Channel 9 host Karl Stefanovic and fiancee Jasmine Yarbrough on the vessel off Capri last month.

Built in Netherlands by Amels, EJI is named after Packer’s three children Emmanuelle, Jackson and Indigo to ex-wife Erica Packer.

Currently based in the south of France, EJI comes with an asking price of $42 million Euros.

Styled to create an ‘airy, restful and positive ambiance’, six cabins on board accommodate up to 12 people with 12 crew members.

‘This remarkable yacht has been designed to take the ‘outside-in’ concept to another level,’ the vessel’s advertisement on international superyacht brokerage Burgess Yachts states.

‘She has huge windows in all the living spaces and three folding balconies on the main deck……allowing guests to withdraw with a digestif and enjoy the sunset without breaking up the party.’

The ‘owner’s suite’ has a study, en suite bathroom complete with walk-in wardrobe/dressing room and its own private folding balcony.

The superyacht is an entertainer’s dream with a  bright and spacious bridge deck saloon that opens up to a sky saloon with an al fresco dining area.

Guests will be impressed by the bar and teppanyaki grill, while the 3000-litre jacuzzi doubles as a helipad.

Mr Packer stepped down as chairman of Crown Resorts earlier this year, citing mental health issues before he checked into a private psychiatric clinic in Boston.

He stepped on board EJI in the Mediterranean just one week after its delivery in May, ahead of schedule.

‘I have to say, after building several yachts, I’ve never been able to deliver a yacht a week early,’ vessel captain Christian Power told last month.

‘And that’s all down to Amels’ organization and skills and it’s just amazing that we’ve got there a week early.’
