The world’s most expensive super yachts
If you are looking into the world of super yachts, then you can be thrown by just how much they seem to cost. While the average super yacht is out of the price range of even the most well-paid normal people, some of the most expensive super yachts have gone for the kind of sums of money that even the rich and the famous cannot afford!
What, though, are the most expensive super yachts in the world? Which yachts have gone for prices that you would need to see to believe?
At $150m, the Lionheart is among the most expensive super yachts out there today. It is around 207ft in size, and is known as one of the best super yachts owned by British retail mastermind Sir Philip Green. It was built by Benetti, and has been a regular hosting spot for the richest and most famous athletes, musicians, and media-types around.
Another very popular ship, the Aviva came in at around $150m as well and is owned by Joe Lewis. The boat is known for having a fully sized tennis court and also has some of the most famous pieces of art owned by Lewis in his extensive collection.
The Ecstastea, funny name aside, cost around $200m and takes pride of place in the yacht collection of Roman Abramovich. The former Chelsea Football Club owner was the largest Feadship ever created, and is believed to have a deadweight approaching 585 metric tons. It was, once, an award-winning superyacht.
Built for around $200m for Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft, the Octopus is known for being among the most lavish ships in the world. It is home to a basketball court, a recording studio, and even an outside bar and lounge. It even has two helipads and space for a pair of submarines!
The Al Mirqab was built for around $250m and was designed for Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al-Thani, the former Prime Minister of Qatar. With ten bedrooms, a helipad, and a collection of VIP suites, the Al Mirqab has been home to many big-time meetings and networking events.
The Pelorus sits at around $300m, and was built also for Abramovich. The yacht itself has been owned by others, too, and is currently owned by Samuel Tak Lee. It is known for having helipads and a full-time crew of around 46 professionals all-year round.
At a cost of $320m, the Radiant – owned by Abdulla Al Futtaim – is a truly mesmeric superyacht. It is around 110m in length, and is known for having space for as many as 20 guests and over 40 crew members. Equipped with everything from massage rooms to swimming pools and even an anti-piracy water cannon.
The Dubai, at around $400m, is owned by the Sheikh of Dubai, Mohammed Rashid al-Maktoum. This is known for hosting jacuzzis, helipads, bespoke tiling, and also has space for well over 100 people across its various rooms, guest suites, and social sections.
The Topaz cost around $527m to build and is known for being one of the most impressive in the world. It was developed for Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan and was designed by Tim Heywood on the exterior. State of the art in every way, with conference rooms, landing pads for helicopters, and so much more.
Streets of Monaco
Topping $1bn for the price, the Streets of Monaco is a superyacht that extends over 500ft in size. It will pack on many of the most amenities from the streets of Monte Carlo. From go-karting to mini-submarine launch pads, this will be home to just about everything one would conceive is needed on a new superyacht.
Sitting at around $1.5bn in price, the Eclipse is another Abramovich-owned superyacht. It is known for having everything from elite missile defence systems to armour plating and bulletproof windows. With over 20 guest bedrooms and a mini-submarine, too, this really has left nothing to chance for one of the wealthiest people in the world.
The History Supreme
Easily the most expensive superyacht in the world, the History Supreme is set to cost as much as $4.8bn. This has been designed by STUART Huges, and is regarded as the most opulent superyacht in the world. Robert Knok is the owner, who is the richest man in Singapore. The master bedroom literally includes the bones of a Tyrannosaurus Rex – and a wall made entirely from rocks that came from meteorites. Talk about opulence and extravagance!
