LIFE looked to be plain sailing for David Beckham as he took to sea on his new £5million yacht yesterday.
The ex-England and Manchester United ace went for a first cruise on his mega-boat with wife Victoria and family, including her parents
The vessel is named Seven — matching his shirt number for the Red Devils and as his country’s skipper, plus the middle name of ten-year-old daughter Harper.
Unshaven Becks was on the crest of a wave as he laughed and joked during the sun-kissed Florida jaunt while dressed in black shorts, white T-shirt and baseball cap worn back-to-front.
An onlooker said: “David looked ecstatic as he took to sea on board his gleaming boat. He’s wanted a yacht for a long time and couldn’t be happier with his new toy.”
The Sun told last month he was helping to design the Italy-made play-thing.
The father of four, 46, splashed out on the 93.5ft yacht following a visit to the Ferretti shipyard in Forli.
It was presented to proud Becks near its mooring, close to the star’s £19million penthouse in Miami.
He took to sea alongside Posh and her parents Anthony and Jackie Adams, as they were served drinks from a silver platter after four attentive crew readied the vessel.
Floral displays and fluffy white towels were dotted around the boat as the group happily chatted on the upper deck, sat on comfy cushions.
Victoria, 47, arrived for the trip in a revealing black mini-dress and sunglasses before changing into a warmer outfit.
Social media snaps also show other family members having fun including Harper, the couple’s second son Romeo, 19, and his partner Mia Regan, also 19.
Also on board were youngest son Cruz, 16, Libby Adams, Victoria’s 20-year-old niece, plus friend Ahmed Al-Sibai.
The yacht can accommodate ten guests in five state rooms. And the millionaire’s status symbol has a nippy top speed of 30 knots. It also boasts an extended swim platform, beach deck.
Alberto Galassi, chief executive of boat-maker Ferretti said of Becks’s yacht: “There’s so much steel on this boat — and glass. We are surrounded by glass. It’s sort of a little crystal palace.”
He added: “We sell emotions, we sell pleasure, we sell entertainment, we sell a good time, we don’t sell boats. We sell a pleasant way of living.”
Becks is in the money after finalising a ten-year, £150million deal to promote this year’s World Cup finals host country Qatar.
However, he was roundly condemned for taking the money as the country has an appalling record on human rights.
