In April last year, the Sydney Morning Herald reported the Murdochs could be staying in Australia ‘for years, not months, as initially believed’.

The couple, who own a home in Bellevue Hill, known as Le Manoir, married in 1999.

Lachlan purchased the superyacht Istros earlier this year.

The vessel is likely to be moored where the family recently purchased a $38million ‘boat shed’ at Wunulla Road, Point Piper.

The 42-metre Istros, which was built in 1954 and subsequently refurbished, was once owned by the Pappadakis shipping dynasty.

It won the grand prize for the best restored vessel at the Monaco Yacht Club Prada Classic Yacht Show in 2001.

But it fell into disrepair and was little more than a rusting hulk when it was rescued from a Maltese port in 2015, salvaged and rebuilt.

The interiors were redesigned in chic Scandinavian style by Van Geest Design.
