Inside Hollywood royalty Grace Kelly's honeymoon yacht fit for a princess – where YOU can stay for a hefty price | The Sun

A YACHT gifted to Grace Kelly for her honeymoon has had an extensive makeover and is now back sparkling on the water.

The 147ft beauty has had a glamorous history and is once again fit for a princess after major renovations.

The yacht was a wedding present to the Hollywood star-turned princess and the Prince Rainier III of Monaco from shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis in 1956.

M/Y Grace – as it's now called- takes 16 guests around the Galapagos Islands and the Grace Kelly suite aboard is priced from £17,000.

The magnificent boat now has renovated staterooms, an upgraded bar, a new lounge and kitchen and both indoor and outside space has been maximised for 360º views.

Grace's upgraded engines, generators and propellers allow guests to sail the islands faster, in more comfort and with less fuel consumption while traveling at 15 knots.

"Combat aged on her, but benefactors like Aristotle Onassis, John Issa, and Prince Rainier ensured she was kept in the style to which she was accustomed.
