Unfortunately, that was only a few weeks after badly breaking his leg against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 on July 10th. That didn't leave much time for boating, and it appears McGregor has stayed mostly in the U.S. undergoing rehab while his boat has sat idle in Europe.
Now that McGregor appears poised to return to the cage, he took time off in Italy with family to run his new toy through its sea trials.
The boat is pretty slick. Despite a hefty $4million U.S. pricetag, it packs a righteous amount of horsepower and luxury features. Which is exactly what you'd expect when Lamborghini gets into the yacht business. McGregor has rightfully dubbed it his "supercar of the sea."
The 63 was a joint venture with yacht-maker Tecnomar, and McGregor cleverly purchased production slot #12 of 63 as an ode to his Proper 12 Irish whiskey brand.
The boat is even outfitted with nearly $500k in unique Proper 12 finishing touches, the most obvious of which is the custom green colour scheme.
In an Instagram post showing McGregor and family enjoying breakfast alongside his daughter Croia, the brash Irishman wrote: "Today is the day!! We officially take ownership of our brand new Lamborghini Sport Yacht! But first... the most important meal of the day."
McGregor also shared some pictures and video as he appeared to be learning the ropes of operating twin diesel V12 4000 horsepower monster. The boat packs a top speed of 60 knots (70 mph) and a cruising speed of 40-45 knots (45-50 mph). The boat is modeled after Lamborghini's new hybrid Sián Supercar, but also has old school kickbacks to the Countach and Miura of the 60's and 70's.
McGregor isn't the only MMA star with a love for boating. Former UFC women's champ Meisha Tate also hit the water in Canada recently.
