America's Cup yacht diesel bill

Red diesel blues have little impact on America’s Cup winner the Swiss-Italian pharmaceuticals tycoon Ernesto Bertarelli.

The two times winner of sailing’s ultimate prize has just spent £250,000 on a fill up for his 315ft motor-yacht, Vava II, which has a swimming pool, six decks and a helipad.

The £100 million yacht recently left Plymouth bound for the Caribbean with his wife on board, Kirsty, a former Miss UK.
