Advertised on yacht broker website Curtis Stokes & Associates, Amphitrite is listed as a modern motoryacht with classic styling.

The advert says: "She was built in 2001 and refitted extensively in 2009. Amphitrite offers twin Caterpillar 3406C 480 hp main engines, twin Northern Lights 55 kW generators, 2 ASea shore power conversion units, Quantum Zero-Speed stabilizer system and updated, top of the line electronics and audio/visual equipment.

"Her layout includes a master stateroom on the main deck, 5 total staterooms and extensive exterior dining, entertaining and relaxation spaces, all of which has made her a popular charter yacht."

Rowling reportedly fell in love with the vessel after taking it on a family charter trip.

Depp had spent £5 million renovating the boat in 2008. It was named Vajoliroja after his ex-wife Vanessa Paradis and their children Lily-Rose and Jack.

In 2015, the actor changed the name to Amphitrite after his then-wife Amber Heard.
