Instead of Going Into Space, David Bowie Chose a Luxury Yacht

David Bowie, known for his refined and impeccable taste but also for his fear of flying, bought the 39m Benetti yacht and traveled on it across the oceans throughout the 1980s while he was touring. After he overcame his phobia of flying in the late 80s and sold the small yacht. Since then, the luxury yacht has had two more owners who actively sailed her across the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.
