The History Supreme is the most expensive yacht in the world. It has surfaces coated with REAL SOLID GOLD and meteorite rock! This is the most updated countdown of the top 10 most expensive yachts in the world.
Luxury yachts are not just modes of transportation, they’re considered symbols of wealth and status by billionaires…
And oh yes…you’ll have to be a member of the billionaire boy’s club in order to own any of these expensive yachts, as the cheapest one amongst them costs over US$300 million!
Most of these mega yachts are owned by oil Sheikhs and Russian oligarchs, they’re the only ones able to maintain these money pits.
These yachts are adorned with obscene levels of opulence…most of them have multiple swimming pools, theaters, basketball courts, helipads, saunas and even concert halls!
These ultra expensive yachts all have plush interiors made from the most exquisite materials on earth and the most expensive yacht of them all, has a bedroom wall made from a material that came from out of space…METEORITE ROCK!
Yachts were not always these big and outlandish, what caused this change in the boat-making industry to create such expensive yachts?
Well…the answer is quite simple…it’s insecurity and jealousy among the world’s elite…
Not all wealthy billionaires own yachts, it’s the insecure ones that do. If one of them acquires a 200-foot mega yacht, the next one wants his yacht to be bigger and acquires a 220-footer, and the cycle continues.
It’s all about competition, it’s all about who has the biggest one. From a psychological point of view, it’s all about insecurity…that’s why men who’re inadequately ‘blessed’ below the belt tend to buy the most absurd SUVs, to compensate for their small size.
Owning a mega yacht is not cheap at all, they’re called money pits for a reason, most of them require a crew of 50 or more just maintain it all year round, even when they’re not in use! The average annual maintenance cost for one of these behemoths, can run up to $7 million US dollars or more…
So, only billionaires with something to prove will end up buying one of these money pits…like the royal family of the United Arab Emirates…they own 3 of the most expensive yachts in the world! It’s truly mind-boggling how much money they carelessly splash around!
Now, let’s get started with our countdown, and discover how much the most expensive yacht in the world, actually costs!
