Which billionaires own the most expensive yachts in the world? With news that Jeff Bezos is about to receive his yet-to-be-unveiled $500 million superyacht from Oceanco, the same company that designed the unique pirate-inspired Black Pearl, it’s the perfect time to see what other billionaires are up to in the world of luxury yachts. From Russian billionaires like Andrey Melnichenko to actual royalty like Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, the ultra-wealthy definitely aren’t on a budget when it comes to luxury sea-fairing vessels.
There’s the History Supreme, a massive superyacht decked out with actual gold and platinum, and there’s even David Geffen’s Rising Sun which features its own above-deck basketball court. Some yachts have their own submarines, others have waterslides, and a lot of them have multiple pools– because being surrounded by the ocean just isn’t enough. Whether it’s the futuristic Sailing Yacht A, which features three massive masts, or the submarine-inspired Motor Yacht A, these ships accommodate tons of guests in VIP cabins and cost millions annually in operation costs. You’d have to be a billionaire to even think about being able to afford one of the beauties.
One yacht features stones from a meteorite and T-Rex bones as decor, another called the Dubai has color-changing spiraling staircases and nightclubs, the Azzam superyacht is both the largest and the fastest in the entire world, and the Eclipse superyacht has a missile defense system. But which billionaire do you think owns the best superyacht? Click play and let’s find out.
