Eddie's yacht club at €3.5m sale price

Eddie Irvine has just purchased a Yacht Club in the Bahamas paradise of Exuma Cays, for the apparently knockdown price of €3.5m, and plans to use it as a stopover point for the billionaires who sail their gigantic yachts through the area.

So how did he get it so cheap? "I was on my way to my island one day," said the ageing lothario, "and I was able to get together with the lady who owns it and do a deal."

Good to see that Eddie continues to mix business with pleasure to such good effect...
