The highest-paid athlete in the world is enjoying his vast wealth. On Tuesday, UFC star Conor McGregor, who earned $180 million last year, unveiled an extravagant acquisition: a $3.6 million Tecnomar for the Lamborghini 63 speedboat.
“My Lamborghini yacht is ready,” McGregor announced in an Instagram post as he recovered from a horrific leg injury sustained in his third fight with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 on March 10.
Known as the “supercar of the seas”, the Lamborghini 63 is (as the name suggests) 63 feet long and powered by two MAN V12 engines, each capable of producing 2000 hp. With this power, the 24-ton vessel can reach a speed of 60 knots, making her one of the fastest vessels in her class.

- 63-feet long
- 4,000 horsepower
- 70-mph top speed
- 24 tons, Up to 60 knots
The yacht is 1 of 63 that were made, with McGregor receiving #12 in honor of his Proper 12 whiskey.
In addition to the boat’s performance, the exterior embodies Lamborghini DNA. The green hull is the same color as the Lamborghini Sian, and the carbon fiber bodywork (to keep weight down) features angular windows reminiscent of Lamborghini’s famous hexagons.
The cockpit is also a nautical interpretation of two Lamborghini models, with leather pilot seats from the Huracán Evo and a steering wheel inspired by the Aventador steering wheel.
The collaboration between Tecnomar and Lamborghini was announced in June 2020, just as 63 boats went into production, commemorating Lamborghini’s founding in 1963.
According to TMZ, McGregor placed the order in October at Tecnomar’s headquarters in Italy and was awarded yacht number 12 in honor of his Irish whiskey company, Proper No. Twelve, which he founded in 2018 and sold for $150 million in April.
“I’m honored to be doing the 12th edition of only 63,” McGregor said in an Instagram post last fall.
The boat is just the latest addition to McGregor’s luxury collection. On his Instagram page, he notoriously shows off his Lamborghini Aventador Roadster and Urus.
He has also displayed his McLaren 650S, Rolls-Royce Ghost, Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé, Bentley Continental GT, and BMW i8. The MMA icon also owns a more modest Land Rover Range Rover and Land Rover Discovery to take his kids to and from school.
For now, though, Conor McGregor may have to wait a while before he can bring joy to his Lamborghini 63.
He recently had surgery to repair his broken tibia and fibula, and it is expected to take at least six weeks to heal from his sea bone.
