The couple, who have been married for 23 years, looked as happy as ever as they sunbathed aboard the ship and took in the stunning harbor views.

Meanwhile, Lachlan stood out in a bold blue shirt and gray pants as he strolled around the yacht with a drink in hand.

Before that, he had traveled to Australia in February with commentator Piers Morgan.

During the Covid pandemic, it looked like the Murdochs were planning to move to Down Under permanently.

Lachlan and Sarah are parents to sons Kalan Alexander, 17, and Aidan Patrick, 16, and daughter Aerin Elisabeth, 12.

In April last year, the Sydney Morning Herald reported that the Murdochs could stay in Australia “for years, not months as originally believed”.

The couple, who own a Bellevue Hill home known as Le Manoir, married in 1999.

They bought their superyacht Istros earlier this year.

The ship is likely to be moored where the family moved to and recently purchased a $38million ‘boathouse’ in Wunulla Road, Point Piper.

The rebuilt 42-meter Classic Istros from 1954 once belonged to the maritime Pappadakis dynasty.

She won the grand prize for best restored vessel at the Monaco Yacht Club Prada Classic Yacht Show in 2001.

But it fell into disrepair and was little more than a rusting hulk when it was rescued from a Maltese port in 2015, salvaged and rebuilt.

The interiors have been redesigned in a “chic Scandinavian style by Van Geest Design”, according to the Robb Report.
