Rising Sun is a motor yacht designed by Jon Bannenberg, and built in 2004 by Germany’s Lürssen for Larry Ellison, CEO of Oracle Corporation, and last refitted in 2007. Rising Sun has been owned since 2010 by David Geffen, who had bought a half share of the yacht initially in late 2006. It reportedly cost over US$200 million to build.
A gym, a basketball court, a wine cellar and a movie theater are among the yacht’s 82 rooms.
