In case you have loads of extra money and is a super fan of Morgan Freeman, this could be good news for you.

Like his hit movie Shawshank Redemption, try imagining yourself in the beach of Zihuatanejo as “Andy” waiting for “Red” while living the dream in your celebirty’s sailboat.

Freeman’s 44-foot sailboat named “Afrodesia” has been with him in vacations since it was built in 1996. And now after two decades he’s saying goodbye and selling it; with the net proceeds going to charity. The asking price for the single-engine Afrodesia is $299,500 (Php 15.24 million).

When you’re as rich and famous as the multi-awarded Hollywood actor, your sailboat has definitely seen quite a handful of picturesque waters over the years like Rhode Island and the Spice Island of Grenada to the Caribbean…. and imagine the parties that have happened in it.

Afrodesia is currently docked in the British Virgin Islands. Here are some photos. You wouldn’t believe how spacious and cozy it is inside, it’s like a house that can travel the seas:
