Argentina's Lionel Messi is recovering on a luxury yacht after his team crashed out of the last eight of the World Cup after losing to eventual champion France.

Argentina's World Cup has been a disappointing experience since qualifying. Even with the best goalscorer in the national team's history, the team somehow made it to the finals, barely qualified for the playoffs, and ultimately crashed out before reaching the quarterfinals.

To relive the disappointing performance of his national team Messi went to Ibiza. There he is tucked away with family and friends on board his Sunseeker 80 Seawater, a 24.72m yacht he has rented for training tournaments.

Seawater rolled off the slipways at the British shipyard in 2015. She has plenty of outdoor seating, including forward and aft dining areas. In addition, there is a large C-shaped sofa on the flybridge with dining tables and a windbreak sheltered from the sun by a bimini top.

The salon and the four guest cabins, which can accommodate 8 guests, have generously sized windows that allow for unobstructed views of the sea. There are also sleeping berths for up to three crew members.

A week's charter price for Seawater starts at €43500.

The boat has a spacious swim platform adjacent to the tender garage which houses a 100hp Williams 385 and a host of water toys such as a wakeboard, paddleboard, water skis and Seabob.

The yacht is powered by two MAN 1800 engines which can propel her to a cruising speed of 24 knots and a maximum speed of 34 knots.
