Tom Brady is celebrating his seventh Super Bowl title in style.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers opted to take the waters around Tampa as opposed to the streets, holding a championship boat parade on Wednesday.
Brady showed up to the parade in high fashion, arriving in his new, reportedly multi-million dollar boat, and was accompanied by a police escort.

The boat, which Brady bought in December, is named “Vida a Vida,” after the environmental conservation initiative started by Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen. Brady ordered the custom made 40-plus foot, state-of-the-art boat, according to TMZ. There is no definitive word on how much the boat cost, but TMZ reported that such a boat is usually worth “a couple million.”
Brady certainly seemed to be enjoying himself during the parade, smiling and waving on several occasions. The quarterback also took time to drive his boat, too.

Brady also made one last pass of the season, throwing the Lombardi Trophy from his boat to someone on Mike Evans’s boat. Brady’s pass was complete, and the Lombardi Trophy didn’t suffer the same fate as the Patriots’ Super Bowl LIII Lombardi Trophy.
The most impressive pitch and catch of @TomBrady‘s career 🤯🏆

Brady isn’t a stranger to parades with boats, taking part in six duck boat parades during his time in New England. Of course, the 73-degree temperature in Tampa on Wednesday is a change to the February weather Brady dealt with in Boston.
“Is anyone working today? No way,” Brady told reporters at the parade. “This is amazing. I’m loving it. I’m so happy for our team. Everybody gets to experience it. This is a very cool day.
“There were duck boat (parades) before, but they were freezing cold. It was nothing like this. 80 degrees. This is perfect weather.”
