Max Verstappen is a big hitter in the Formula 1 world. His salary has allowed him to live quite the luxurious lifestyle, including a swanky apartment in Monaco. He even has his own plane to jet around the globe.

Now, it seems Verstappen might be adding another fancy toy to his collection. A yacht. Yeah, you heard it right. A yacht!

Gazzetta dello Sport, an Italian newspaper, spilled the beans. They reported that Verstappen was spotted at a shipyard in Viareggio, Italy, last Friday. The reason? To check out a yacht.

He wasn’t alone, though. Alongside him were a bunch of employees and his partner, Kelly Piquet. Must have been quite the entourage.

But here’s the kicker. Verstappen hasn’t actually bought the yacht yet. At least, that’s what the Italian newspaper says. He’s still mulling it over.

And you know what’s funny? Verstappen is actually pretty good at driving a boat. There’s this video from Red Bull Racing that proves it. It’s from a while back, but it’s still pretty cool.
