Yacht or not?

Does actor Colin Firth own a yacht? Has he ever publicly expressed interest in owning a yacht? (I am aware he is slated to appear in an upcoming movie featuring a yacht.)

Please help settle a debate that has been raging for at least a week about whether Colin Firth is "a yacht guy."

He and his wife hosted a party on a yacht in 2013 - does that count?

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "yacht"--he's a successful actor, but he's not making Russian oligarch money. He's not from a posh background, he and his wife and kids live in Hampshire and Umbria. He could sail on Lake Trasimeno, I guess. If he had a really big boat, I think we'd have heard about it during the publicity when he was cast.
(In 2007, he went sailing with Pierce Brosnan after Mama Mia!)

to ideefixe's point - most famous people on yachts that you see are partying with someone else or renting it or some combination of both.

It might still be hired but it says it's theirs!
