When he ordered the boat” – the 183—foot sailboat Rosehearty– “he worried,” she will relate in a Chinese accent as pronounced as his Australian one, “people think it’s too extravagant, too much money. I said, “Rupert, don’t worry. All our friends like Tom Perkins or David Geffen, they have like this huge ship, I don’t think you’re extravagant. Your boat is not as spectacular.”
