He said at the time: “It’s not Bono’s yacht at all, it’s mine. Bono doesn’t know anything about boats. For years, I had dreamed of owning a yacht, but to be honestly, that was a little out of my reach. So myself and a few friends got together, contributed and bought the Cyan. I don’t know where the story that belongs to Bono came from. ‘
His wife Morleigh Steinberg oversaw the yacht’s overhaul, which took place in St Tropez in 2008.
The Edge explained, “It has now been totally renovated and we are really happy with it. Morleigh has totally supervised all the work on board and it’s great. So it’s now a really trendy ship!
The boat lacks absolutely nothing when it comes to luxury, with all the necessary comforts for the guests. CYAN features a state-of-the-art music system, on-deck Jacuzzi, swim platform, expansive dining area and bar.
