Conor McGregor says today is the day he takes ownership of his 'superyacht'
McGregor previously referred to 4000-horsepowered, dual engine, twin turbo, 'rocket ship' as the best purchase he has ever made
Conor McGregor has declared that “today is the day” he officially takes ownership of his brand new Lamborghini Sport Yacht.
The Dubliner made the announcement in a new Instagram post alongside a picture of Conor Jnr at a breakfast table with a cup with the word Monaco emblazoned on it, adding: “But first.. the most important meal of the day."
Last July, the MMA star posted a picture of the 63-foot long Lamborghini Technomar, nicknamed the “supercar of the sea” that he had purchased for an estimated 3.1 million euro.
McGregor previously referred to 4000-horsepowered, dual engine, twin turbo, “rocket ship” as the best purchase he has ever made.
“I am honoured to secure the Number 12 edition of just 63 to be made,” he revealed on Instagram last year. “1963 being the year Lamborghini first began, and 12 being, well you know Twelve!
"Thank you Giuseppe Constantino and the entire team at “The Italian Sea Group” for your amazing work! Excited to see the finished result during next seasons yachting season.”

When later asked by MMA journalist, Aaron Bronsteter, what was the best purchase he ever made, McGregor said: “I would say my Lamborghini yacht.
“It's currently in Italy at the minute. It's ready for post-fight. I've a bit of work to be done after this bout, across the United States, and then I go to Italy. I'm going to christen my son in Italy with the family and some friends, and then I'm going to pick up my Lamborghini yacht.
“It's some vessel so I'm really excited to get into it and rally it around. I look forward to setting records on it also."
The Technomar ‘superboat’ is a limited edition creation that comes custom fitted with kitchen appliances, a dining area, a bedroom and bathroom underneath, as well as many other features you’d expect for the price tag.
Its pair of V12 engines that weigh 24 tons can power it though the water at speeds of up to 60 knots or nearly 70 miles-per-hour.
It is understood the luxury car manufacturer is only manufacturing 63 of the yachts — the 12th of which McGregor purchased, a nod to his whiskey brand Proper No 12.
The new yacht is also painted a shade of green similar to the bottles used for McGregor’s Proper No 12 whiskey, which is a big part of how he reached the top of the Forbes’ highest paid athletes list in 2021.
Conor was the previous owner of a yacht, The 188, which refers to the amount in euros to social welfare McGregor got, before he became famous.
