Purchased from Speer by Italian motorsports entrepreneur Flavio Briatore for £68.2m, she was given a refitted interior designed by Celeste Dell'Anna, and given a blue exterior.

Available for hire at a rate of $250,000 per week, in 2009 at the Monaco Grand Prix, she became the location of a meeting between the FIA and Formula One Teams Association to resolve proposed regulation changes for the 2010 Formula One season.

Force Blue was seized by Guardia di Finanza (Italian Customs Officers) in May 2010 in La Spezia, near Genoa. On the authority of a local prosecutor, the state claims that the vessel’s owners, Autumn Sailing Ltd, that there is outstanding Value Added Tax owing which should have been paid on the fuel used by the yacht. The amount evaded is estimated to be around five million euros.
