Charlotte Church and Gavin Henson's little luxury... their £800,000 yacht

by They're known among celeb circles for their reputation as a down-to-earth couple.

But much as they may enjoy a drink in their local pub or a quiet night in like anyone else, there are things that set Charotte Church and Gavin Henson apart.

One of them is docked in Swansea Marina. It's their £800,000 luxury yacht Sketchy.

The couple are frequently seen aboard the 12-metre-long boat, as was the case this week when they spent the night with their children, Dexter, ten months, and Ruby, two.

Gavin is often been spotted keeping it shipshape since he went on indefinite leave from his rugby club Ospreys to recover from a groin injury.

It's clearly their pride and joy, and a luxury Charlotte has always longed for.

In 2004, shortly after coming into a £5.5 million fortune, she sent her mother Maria to the Southampton Boat Show to see what was available.

A few years later, she admitted in an interview about her spending habits: "I don't buy diamonds anymore. The only thing I would really like is a yacht."

That dream became a reality, with the couple taking their new boat on trips this summer to the Mediterranean and to the Isle of Wight, where they partied at the island's annual festival with friends.
