The football legend, 46, was joined by his best friend Dave Gardener, 45, as they kicked back on the 93.5ft vessel called Seven.

David donned a pink Inter Miami CF baseball cap, a crisp white T-shirt and dark shades as he soaked up the sun on the top deck of the Italian-made Riva Argo.

It was reported last year that David had ‘treated himself’ to the the luxury vessel which he helped design after being inspired by his maritime jaunts with Elton John and David Furnish – who often holiday at sea.

In the summer, David was spotted at an Italian shipyard Ferretti’s HQ in Forli where he perused the yachts and now the footballer is enjoying his new purchase with his loved ones.

A source told The Sun in December: ‘David had a look around some yachts in the summer, and decided to treat himself. He helped design the boat himself, and has been incredibly hands-on with everything.

‘It’s not an oligarch-style super-yacht, but it’s still pretty plush by anyone’s standards. He was inspired after holidaying with Elton and David on their boat – and loves life on the water.

‘There will be an area for the kids to snorkel, and the boat will be a brilliant base for the whole Beckham clan to have magical holidays abroad.’

David proudly named his vessel after his iconic shirt number he wore for six years while playing for Manchester United, he also wore the number seven for international games for England.

Seven also has a special meaning for the David and Victoria as it is also the middle name of their daughter Harper.

The craft can accommodate up to 10 guests in five staterooms, with four crew members on board ready to serve the famous family’s every need.

The yacht has a cruising speed of 20 knots and goes up to a top speed of 30 knots, while it can travel a distance of 300 nautical miles without the need to refuel.

The stunning vessel boasts an extended swim platform, beach deck and has two engines which generate 2,400 horsepower each.

Alberto Galassi, chief executive of boat-maker Ferretti said of David’s new purchase: ‘There’s so much steel on this boat — and glass. We are surrounded by glass. It’s sort of a little crystal palace.’

He continued: ‘We sell emotions, we sell pleasure, we sell entertainment, we sell a good time, we don’t sell boats. We sell a pleasant way of living.’

Their new boat is moored near the family’s £19million penthouse apartment in Miami.
