6 of the World’s Most Decadent Luxury Yachts.
6 of the World’s Most Decadent Luxury Yachts.
Many will agree that there is no greater icon of luxury and wealth than a private yacht — even a private jet ranks a distant second. Most people can picture themselves at the helm, tropical breezes ruffling their hair and caressing their skin, or lounging in comfort as a white-uniformed crew panders to their every whim.
But even private yachts have a pecking order when it comes to space and amenities, and some vessels are equipped with the most decadent of luxury provisions. Feast your eyes on six of the most decadent luxury yachts in the world.
1. The History Supreme
Can you say cha-ching? The History Supreme, owned by Malaysian billionaire Robert Knok, is by far the world’s most expensive private floating vessel, with a ticket price of $4.8 billion. This 100-foot-long superyacht took over three years to build and features a dining area, deck, rails, staircases, and anchor adorned with 10,000 kilograms of solid gold and platinum. The Supreme’s master suite showcases a panoramic aquarium and a meteorite rock wall, along with a statue made of an actual T-Rex bone and a liquor decanter sporting a rare 18.5-carat diamond. Even without all the bling, the History Supreme is truly a floating wonder.
2. The Eclipse
With a lowly $1.5 billion price tag and only 533 feet in length, the Eclipse is dwarfed by the History Supreme, but it is still the world’s second largest private yacht. Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich sits at the helm of this floating oasis of luxury when he’s not busy sipping Cristal in one of the Eclipse’s two hot tubs or doing laps in one of two onboard swimming pools. Security is no problem for the Eclipse: the vessel is equipped with armor plating, bullet proof windows, an anti-paparazzi shield, two helipads and a mini-submarine. Luxury amenities include a dance hall and 24 lavishly appointed guest cabins.
3.The Streets of Monaco
You will do a double take if you manage to capture a glimpse of the gorgeous Streets of Monaco. The luxury liner resembles a floating Mediterranean city, replete with a beach and palatial architecture flaunting turrets and spires. The 500-foot vessel boasts a 3-story master suite with a private elevator. Imaging yourself basking on one of the yacht’s many sundecks or cooling off by its waterfall. Go below decks to enjoy an underwater view of the sea, and come and go at your leisure from the ship’s heleport. Priced at a cool $1.1 billion and available for purchase, you’ll get a lot of bang for your big bucks with the Streets of Monaco.
The royal family of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is notorious for its oil fortunes, and at least one member of the family knows how to spend it. With its home port in Dubai, the Azzam is said to be one of the fastest luxury yachts in the world. Owned by a member of the royal family, the yacht is 590 feet long and cost its owner $600 million. The Azzam’s design and decor were created by French interior designer Christophe Leonie, giving the vessel’s interior a decidedly decadent French flair.
This floating jewel is owned by billionaire Shaikh Mansour, UAE deputy prime minister, minister of presidential affairs, and member of the Abu Dhabi royal family. The luxury yacht features eight decks, a massive Jacuzzi, two helipads, air conditioning, underwater lighting, a fully equipped gym, a movie theater and a business center. Priced at $527 million and 482 feet long, the Topaz provides all the luxury and comfort you need for a lavish decadent lifestyle.
6.Motor Yacht A
Four hundred feet long and with a price tag of $440 million, Motor Yacht A is said to be owned by Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko. From a distance, this swanky sea vessel resembles a stealth submarine with its elongated design and sleek lines. But the yacht’s interior reeks of luxury, with a massive master bedroom, an entire floor devoted to disco, a modular design for transforming guest suites into staterooms, and every luxury amenity you could ever dream of.
