Harry Potter author JK Rowling is reportedly selling her luxury yacht for £7m less than she paid for it just eight months ago.
The 47m long vessel, called Amphitrite, is believed to have cost the writer £22m when she purchased it in January.
The yacht, once owned by Johnny Depp, is now listed for sale at €17.8m (£15m) with Curtis Stokes and Associates. Depp had the yacht refitted with new lighting and wall hangings, reportedly at a cost of £5m.
Depp renamed it twice - firstly to Vajoliroja, in tribute to the names of his ex-wife Vanessa Paradis, his own name and those of his children Lily Rose and Jack.
Later, when he married Amber Heard, he changed the name to honour her, with the yacht becoming 'Amphitrite' - the Greek sea goddess and wife of Poseidon.
It was built in 2001 in Turkey and can accommodate 10 guests. Rowling is said to have been entranced by the vessel when she and her family stayed on it on a charter trip.
Described on the yacht brokerage website as "a modern motoryacht with classic styling", she comes with five rooms and exterior dining, entertaining and relaxation spaces.
The website also lists the luxury features of each room, including the salon, which offers "two separate seating areas with sofas, end tables and coffee tables port aft and forward, 2 lounge chairs and a glass storage and wine bar cabinet to starboard, a beautiful skylight above, 10 large windows on each side with curtains and shades, carpet and double teak and glass doors to the aft deck."
To charter the yacht this summer cost £100,000 a week.
Rowling has recently returned to the world of Harry Potter with her involvement in the hit stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
However, she has said that after the release of the script of the play, which follows the adventures of an adult Harry and his son, "Harry is done now".
She told journalists: "He goes on a very big journey during these two plays and then, yeah, I think we're done.
"This is the next generation, you know. So I'm thrilled to see it realised so beautifully but, no. Harry is done now."
Asked about the yacht sale, a spokesman for Rowling said they would not comment on private matters.
