Conor McGregor has revealed that work on his Lamborghini yacht has been completed as he shared a snap of the vast 63ft liner on Tuesday.
The 33-year-old UFC fighter took to Instagram to share a picture of his finished Lamborghini Tecnomar 63 as it was transported from the construction site.
Conor shelled out an eye-watering €3million on the Lamborghini yacht back in October, with the sportsman proudly revealing he was the proud owner of just one of the 63 boats that were being made.

His brand new vessel, which is priced at around £2.6 million, looked enormous as it was carefully manoeuvred by a team of workers, on top of a large orange trailer.
Penning a simple caption for the image of his new yacht, McGregor wrote: ‘My Lamborghini yacht is ready.’
McGregor initially announced his purchase of the Lamborghini Tecnomar 63 – the Italian car manufacturer’s first entry into the Sport Yacht World – back in October last year.

The Tecnomar 63 has been designed and built by the Italian Sea Group and Tecnomar for Lamborghini – with Conor buying number 12 of the sole 63 yachts that will be made.
The price is a mere drop in the ocean for the sportsman, who has an estimated net worth of around €101million.
The 24 ton, 63-feet long yacht can reach a top speed of 69mph (60 knots) and boasts 4,000 horsepower with its pair of 24.2-litre V-12 diesels.
Inspired by the iconic car, the yacht has an angular and futuristic design with Y-shaped headlamps and the famous Lamborghini logo.
There is also a dashboard based on Lamborghini’s mid-engine hybrid sports car, the Sián FKP 37, a stark contrast to the typical layouts used by yachts.
The yacht’s exterior is inspired by the Lamborghini Miura and Countach from the 1960s and 1970s, the former of which famously appeared in the opening sequence of the 1969 film The Italian Job.
Among the yacht’s other swanky features is a private bedroom space in the lower quarters, offering a cosy spot to relax while the boat cruises through the sea.
Back in October a delighted Conor was seen picking out swatches for his brand new yacht, alongside fiancée Dee Devlin and their children Conor Jr, three and Croia, 21 months.
Conor looked dapper in a navy tweed suit as he proudly posed up at the Italian Sea Group’s headquarters.

Yay: In October Conor was seen picking out swatches for his new boat alongside fiancée Dee Devlin and their children Conor Jr, three and Croia, two after purchasing the liner in Italy, the 12th of just 63 that were being made
Eyes on the prize: In an Instagram post he said: ‘Titled the ”Supercar of the Sea”. I am honoured to secure the Number 12 edition of just 63 to be made. 1963 being the year Lamborghini first began, and 12 being, well you know Twelve!’
Ouch: Earlier this week, McGregor was seen for the first time since his devastating injury as he was released from hospital, after fracturing his tibia in the closing seconds of the opening round against Dustin Poirier (pictured during the fight)
Earlier this week, McGregor was seen for the first time since his devastating injury as he was released from hospital in time to celebrate his 33rd birthday.
Conor now faces a long road to recovery, with UFC president Dana White convinced that the former two-weight champion will be unable to compete for 12 months.
‘I think they just released him right now from the hospital about 10, 15 minutes ago,’ Dana told TMZ Sports.
‘He’ll be in [Los Angeles] for a little while. I don’t know if he’s gonna fly home, or what he’s gonna do.
Keeping his spirits up: Conor was in good spirits as he updated his fans following his release from hospital, confirming he was finally on the mend after the horrific injury
Asked when the sportsman would be back in fighting shape, Dana said: ‘He’ll be back in a year.’
McGregor took to social media after surgery and said: ‘Just out of the surgery room, everything went to plan, everything went perfect and I’m feeling tremendous. We’ve got six weeks on a crutch now and then we begin to build back.
‘A clean break of the tibia and it was not to be. Dustin, you can celebrate that illegitimate win all you want but you’ve done nothing in there. That second round would have shown all,’ he added.
Conor broke his leg while throwing a kick that landed on Poirier’s elbow late in the first round.
His coach John Kavanagh revealed that the athlete had suffered an ankle problem in training camp that could have been a contributing factor.
He said: ‘There might have been something in there. It seems unusual that a young, healthy, fit man can wrap his foot around an elbow without there being something there before.
‘But you can play those sorts of guessing games all day long,’ he concluded.
Cashing in: Despite the difficult end to his fight, it’s thought Conor banked £3.61million for his defeat to Dustin, according to The Sports Daily
Despite the difficult end to his fight, it’s thought Conor banked £3.61million for his defeat to Dustin, according to The Sports Daily.
The UFC do not release fighter pay officially but Poirier reportedly took home £736,000, significantly less than his opponent despite the fact that he won their second fight back in January.
The pay-per-view came in at just under 1.8 million buys globally, making it the second most lucrative in the organisation’s history after McGregor’s infamous fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The fact that McGregor was forced out of the contest after just five minutes with his fractured tibia means he raked in £12,033-per-second of action in the cage.
Back in May, McGregor was ranked as the No 1 highest paid athlete in the world and his earnings from Saturday night will help keep him in top spot, but that will be scant consolation.
He was hugely frustrated and even conducted an interview after the fight while in a tremendous amount of pain from the injury.
