LONDON, ENGLAND - JULY 09: Jay Z and Beyonce watch on as Serena Williams of The United States and Angelique Kerber of Germany play in the Ladies Singles Final match on day twelve of the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club on July 9, 2016 in London, England.

On Friday (Sept. 4), Beyonce turned 39 and celebrated by chartering a megayacht. Beyonce, alongside Jay-Z, was photographed aboard the luxury yacht with their children while sailing through the Mediterranean, as Rap-Up reports.

The Carters’ LANA vessel, which is noted to be one of the most luxurious superyachts around the globe, is longer than a football field and can hold up to 12 guests, not including the 34 crew members.

The amenities include eight in-suite staterooms and seven VIP staterooms, a helipad, sun deck pool, theatre, spa, and gym, as TMZ reports.  The massive boat also includes jet skis, wakeboards, SEABOBs, water skis, and inflatable paddleboards.

The boat, which was built in 2020, can be rented for approximately $2 million a week. Jay-Z also hired two private chefs from Italy’s Ristorante Quattro Passi to prepare a special birthday meal for Queen Bey.

“What a unique and indescribable experience, having once again had the opportunity to cook for Beyoncé and her family on a private island for her birthday,” wrote Michelin Star Chef Antonio Mellino.
