To live a millionaire lifestyle, you can't go wrong with buying a luxury yacht - and you don't have to go far to find one.

Ian Smallridge runs Pearl Motor Yachts in Stratford-upon-Avon and has seen a fair share of celebrities and the super-rich shopping at his yard.

Craig David and Charlotte Church have popped in to find the perfect accessory for their showbiz lifestyles and David Beckham's parents have also considered purchasing one.

Turnover has risen from pounds 3 million in 2005 to pounds 5 million last year and is expected to rise to pounds 8 million in 2007.
