8 of the World’s Most Expensive Yachts Ever Purchased


“The trend is typically that no billionaire seems to be fulfilled until
they’ve purchased their own superyacht. Actually, it has been discovered
that the everyday billionaire invests roughly $22 million on their
yachts, according to Wealth-X and UBS Global Billionaire Census from a
November report.
Wealth-X’s newest study rates the priciest deluxe asset purchases of all
time, and it’s likely not surprising that 8 of the top 10 investments
are put into yachts.”

Why is it nearly all of these are owned by Russians? I thought all the big yachts were in Southampton :p


Serene, $330 million – This 440-foot Italian-designed yacht belongs to the Russian vodka
