To have and have yacht… that is a question because the most expensive don’t look like yachts at all I know them, you know the ones with floaty sails.
So I’m admitting that that’s the first thing which came into mind when I was sent a list of the world’s most expensive yachts.
Now if only it came earlier… I’ve already bought the Scary One’s Christmas present.
And so I have been doing my homework has left me little clearer other than to discover that they are originally Dutch and need to be fun and racy.
I also discovered King Charles II returned back to England on a jaght.
And that he loved to compete with his brother James along the Thames.
The haves and the have yachts
It seems then that yachts are fast fun boats for filthy rich people.
And that’s just what PayDayLoansNet have given us.
The most expensive yacht in the world is History Supreme costing $4.8 billion.
At 100ft long, and weighing in at 220,462 pounds the yacht is covered in 100,000kg of gold, platinum and jewels.
It took over three years to produce, the yacht includes:
A deck, dining area, rails, anchor, all crafted from precious metals.
The vessel’s base is wrapped in a thin layer of gold.
With the master bedroom featuring a statue made from genuine Tyrannosaurus Rex bones.
Almost as old as Bob, who has young bones and is still going strong at 98.
Well, you would with all that luxury around you.
Chelsea FC owner doesn’t normally settle for second as his multitude of managers will testify.
But History Supreme eclipses Roman’s Eclipse.
It costs an eye-watering $1.5 billion.
The luxe yacht is spread across nine decks, featuring two helipads, two swimming pools, 24 guest bedrooms, a disco hall and a mini-submarine.
The facilities aboard Eclipse include a gym, dance floor, underwater lights, beach club, wifi connection, beauty salon, tender garage and deck jacuzzi etc.
And we passed by the mansions of the Great and the Good and their harbours.
Roman, who it’s fair to say likes a yacht, is said to be the billionaire backer of this super yacht.
The Streets of Monaco is said to have cost $1.1 billion.
And it is designed to encapsulate the beautiful streets of the French Riviera onboard.
The 508-foot-long superyacht includes an onboard casino, racetrack, three swimming pools and a mini-submarine helipad.
There are seven guest suites, a mini waterfall and a restaurant with an underwater view.
All of which have stylised interiors that mimic the city’s iconic surroundings.
The ‘Azzam’ is a deluxe yacht that flaunts incredible complexity in its detail and design costing $600 million.
The superyacht can accommodate up to 36 guests with a crew of 60 people is required onboard to maintain the yacht.
At 180 metres in length, it is the longest private motor yacht in the world.
So in a world where the divisions are growing wider it is worth reflecting.
On how the rich live and where you’re only worry is… to have and to have yacht.
