One Direction

The boy band - Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik - resorted to drastic measures to escape screaming fans in Florida by hiring the luxury 90-foot custom-built boat and sailing around the ocean for the day.

The 'Little Things' hitmakers are set to start the US leg of their Take Me Home world tour tomorrow on Thursday, but took a well deserved break by soaking up the sun on the lavish cruiser, which comes with four walk-around decks, a movie room and four rooms - which sleep up to eight people.

The lads finally arrived on deck after a relaxing day to be greeted by a group of adoring teen fans eager to meet their musical heroes.

One fan in particular was blown away by Harry's caring nature, telling the Daily Mirror newspaper: "When Harry saw a fan in a wheelchair with multiple sclerosis, he went over and introduced himself and gave her a kiss on the cheek. It was incredibly sweet."

The band then headed back to their beach-side hotel in preparation for their concert in Sunrise City on Thursday.

The Take Me Home world tour lasts until October 30.
