Bill Gates just loves the Adriatic Sea. The founder of the Microsoft Corporation is on a family cruise with his wife, Melinda, and their three children on the Adriatic coast of Montenegro.

After visiting Dubrovnik last year, Sibenik in Dalmatia a few years ago this time Bill Gates has decided to go further south to Montenegro where is cruising on the luxury yacht Lady S. The second richest man in the world with an estimated fortune of $95 billion is cruising on the newly launched 93 metres ling Lady S which costs an amazing #1.4 million a week to charter.

According to Jutarnji List Gates and his family have been enjoying a rather adventurous break, with explorations into the wild mountains of Montenegro where they have been rafting on the Tara river and zip-lining. Understandably security has been tight, with a host of bodyguards, and the billionaire hasn’t commented to the media or indeed allowed any photographers close.


Lady S is currently on anchor of the shore of Montenegro near Budva and according to reports Gates and the family spent some time in the luxury resort of Porto Montenegro where several guests of the five-star Regent Hotel saw him playing tennis. Guests of the hotel reported that Gates and his group were very unassuming.

Bill Gates earned his vast fortune by founding Microsoft, and today he works with his wife, Melinda, for humanitarian causes. According to the August 2018 Forbes magazine, Gates is currently worth $95.4 billion, making it the second richest person in the world behind Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos who is reported to be worth $114 billion.

Whether Gates will continue his cruise into Croatian waters is so far unknown, however after his trip to Sibenik he was quoted as saying that Croatia is ‘’his ideal place for summer holidays.”
