(Newser) – Tiger Woods’ new boat isn’t a reward for completing sex rehab—it’s a gift for his wife. The appropriately named Solitude, a custom 61-footer, “is a dive boat and was designed for Elin, who loves the sport,” a source tells People. It was commissioned two years ago, long before Woods’ infidelity came to light—but at a cost of $2 to $3 million, perhaps it will still help soothe his scorned wife.

“Maybe the boat will represent a new beginning for Tiger and Elin,” says the source. "Romantic sea air can do wonders for a troubled marriage"...which may get more troubled, once Elin hears Tiger allegedly got one of his porn star mistresses knocked up. Twice. Click here for more.
