We’re working ourselves up to the David Geffen or Diddy class and we imagine you’re the same… really, yacht join the fast set like Beyoncé.
One of the many advantages of travelling the world is getting wined and dined in exotic locations.
Where the super rich have been before.
And royalty, with Princess Margaret (Queen Elizabeth’s party-loving wee sis) christening the sea around Tobago on her honeymoon Nylon Pool.
As it’s so clear it resembled nylon stockings.
While we stood on that Caribbean sea bank Mags had probably done and can Geffen or Jeff Bezos or Barry Diller or Diddy.
Well, probably but we reckon if you’ve got the facilities of the world’s most expensive yacht, Geff’s $590m superyacht, you’ll stay on board.
Yacht to party with us
Of course, you don’t have to have the keys to a super yacht to enjoy yourself.
Or be the king and queen of hip hop like Diddy and Beyoncé to enjoy a good oul’ sing song.
Because give me a captain’s hat and a boom box on the Bosphorus and they say my name, say my name.
While whether you’re Bandanaman, Joe or Joanna Public or a diva the sunset is still the same around the Maldives.
And would you get a superstar going off piste and trying to cross disputed territory between Jordan and Israel on the Red Sea?
But because we know you want to look through the keyhole to see how the super rich play we’re jumping on board with Ritzy Charters.
RC scoped Geff’s gaff to show us 82 (count them) rooms.
The yacht can accommodate around 18 guests and 55 crew members.
With a basketball court, wine cellar and an impressive luxurious cinema.
Yacht to see the others
Bezos’s tub on the sea is second most expensive at $500m and is the largest sailing yacht on the planet.
The Y721, also named Koru (Māori for strength, new life and peace) boasts a great-sized pool on its deck.
And accommodation for up to 18 guests and 40 crew members with Māori art to the fore.
Diane von Furstenberg and Barry Diller have a $200 million Eos super yacht rippling the waves.
Now if you’re lucky enough to be one of their 14 guests you’ll be bowled over by their glass staircase, a 14-foot world map, a jacuzzi and a figurehead of Diane.
Now for only $120m the VENUS yacht of Steve Jobs’ widow Laurene Powell ticks all the boxes.
The superyacht can accommodate up to 12 guests in six cabins and 22 crew members in 14 cabins.
And eek, the vessel’s annual running cost is around $10-$15m!
The Diddy of them all
The fifth most expensive celebrity-owned yacht is The Maraya, owned by Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs’ and Beyoncé’s Maraya is only fifth dearest.
And guess what, he rents out the $65 million superyacht for $300,000 per week.
But you can always split that among your 12 guests at a time in six cabins.
And as you’d expect there’s all mod cons such as a sundeck jacuzzi, gym and wellness area, not to mention its very own chef.
Really, yacht join the fast set like Beyoncé.
But if you can’t make the most of what you’ve got.
