Beyonce in Dubrovnik

Beyonce & Jay-Z are in town. The world news has reported a little altercation whilst in Dubrovnik last night read here and here. However, I am more interested in the yacht which they have chartered. Va Bene is a 47.8m (156ft) motor yacht owned by Eric Clapton, a fact which none of the papers reported, but my NZ friend used to work as Chief Stewardess onboard. In 2005 my company provisioned 7 times for the yacht, alas without the Great Man himself. My friend gave me a palm tree from the yacht which sits in the living room now, which I called "Eric". It's doing very well, thank you. As for Beyonce & hubby I think they thought they were in Hollywood and not in a little charming Adriatic town ....


  1. Wow, what an amazing yacht!

    That's so neat about the palm tree! Cute that you named it Eric!

  2. Erin, I will photograph "Eric" in the daylight and post next week! He came off Va Bene bedraggled and thin and since 2005 is doing very well ...!
