Owner Shahid Khan also owns the Jacksonville Jaguars. It’s a $200 million dollar vessel that can be rented if a person has the money. The last known rate was for about $1.25 million a week. Why leave a boat sit in the water or in a warehouse when it can be out giving underprivileged rich families a taste of the high life?
A family could get lost on the Kismet. It would take a person a week just to find the kids. But with a nice cocktail lounge like the one on the Kismet, it might be better to throw a huge business party and see if some of that $1.25 million can’t be recouped in an evening or two. Cases of the right champagne can make a dent.
Of course, the bathroom would be decked out in all kinds of gold lining. A billionaire doesn’t pay hundreds of millions of dollars for cheap decor. A television in the shower is just par for course. Keep up on the news or watch a round of golf…the billionaire way.
If you’re thinking the Master Bedroom looks better then what a five star hotel would have, you obviously aren’t a billionaire. Everything they have is better than a five star hotel. They own five star hotels. Why would they settle for that type of living?
Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft is owner of this bad boy. The first thing you think of when you look at the features is how many people can fit on it. It definitely could be a floating community. The Navy is jealous.
That’s right! It has a movie theater. It’s not a TV with a couch in front of it. It’s not a small 12″ black and white everyone has to huddle around to hear. It’s a huge movie theater and I would be willing to bet it has popcorn.
Do you know that there are some houses that don’t have indoor pools? Hard to imagine when you’re a billionaire. They have them on their boats. Of course, they have a whole ocean full of water. But, no one said these guys were normal.
If you’re looking through brochures of million dollar yachts, the Serenity might look like one of them. But, put them side by side and you immediately see the difference. It has as many decks as some smaller cruise liners. Put a nice Jacuzzi on the top deck and you have a whole new way to relax.
You feel like you’re on top of the world. Imagine watching a sunset with a drink in your hand while you sit comfortably on the plush leather seats. Then, get in the Jacuzzi. It’s not the best part of the yacht. But, you’d have a hard time arguing that while you’re relaxing in it.
That’s right! This one’s for the guests. Actually, this is just one of the bedrooms for the guests. That bed is actually an optical illusion. It can fit about eight people comfortably. Not your normal King Size bed that can only fit about four or five with enough elbow room.
The Namita has so many impressive layers, you’ll want to spend your time in all of them. That is, if you have enough time. It’s 229 feet! That’s almost an entire football field just to give you some reference that’s more in our world of thinking.
Of course, it has an indoor bar. Are you kidding? But, it’s not just a bar. It’s actually bigger than some nice clubs in downtown Miami. But, this is a Billionaire’s version of a humble bar.
It’s not furnished from IKEA. I can bet on that one. And it’s not just a bedroom. It’s a living room with an office and a dining room. It actually makes Master Suites in Five Star hotels look like a hole in a wall.
You ever meet those people who go into houses and completely design them to make them look as good as possible? This bathroom is like that every day. It’s perfect in every nook and cranny. If you didn’t have the rest of the yacht, you could live comfortably just in here.
Andreas Liveras owns this $116 million beast. It’s big enough that other smaller boats can actually board it. What would that be like? Get on the yacht, take it out a few miles, and then take another smaller boat for a ride around your big one. What a life!
Seriously, billionaires live in a completely different world than the rest of us. If they walked into a regular living room, they’d feel cramped. Look at the piano! Have you ever seen that much couch in a couch? This room is more phenomenal than a lounge at a resort on a corporate owned island.
When a billionaire has a yacht, sometimes that just isn’t enough. They have to have a boat for their smaller boating needs. Then, they need some jet skis when the boat just won’t do. Are you starting to understand how these people think now? I don’t think you are. You need a few more examples to give you better idea.
The name is what it’s about. This is another yacht that you can rent. But, you might have to give up your yearly salary for several years just to enjoy it for a week. In fact, it is “4You” if you can come up with about $318,000 a week.
It comes with a crew that will serve you. So, enjoy the view while drinks are being put in your hands. Worry about what you’re going to do for the rest of your life after you take it all in for a week.
You know you’ve made it when you can sit in the shower. Actually, you could have a party in that shower. It’s definitely an awesome experience to kick back in the shower with the window open in there and watch the ocean go by. Don’t worry! No peeping toms.
It’s definitely different kind of living when you walk into your own dining room area that looks big enough to be a restaurant. You have your own personal waiter waiting on you. That means, you’ll get a refill when you want one and your dessert will finally be on time for once.
This is the most interesting yacht on this list. It gives you the feel that you’re on a pirate ship. But, you’ll love the many amenities. It’s definitely not for pirates. They wouldn’t know how to act.
This would be the greatest experience ever. Imagine you and your friends looking out over the water and catching Pirates of the Caribbean. It would definitely let you know you’ve left normal living behind and you’re in another world. One that knows how to enjoy the good life.
Then, there’s an office that makes you feel like you’re in the top floor of a huge law firm. You can have a banquet in that room in the back. But, you can get your work done, if you have any, right there at that desk where you have enough room for a computer, a phone, a coffee pot, a fax machine…wait a minute! What century are we in?
Nice Center Piece
In front of the sculpture, there’s a table that is kind of reminiscent of the Knights of the Round Table. Go back and to the left, you walk into a nice lounge area with a good view out the window. Go back and to the right, there is entirely different lounge area with an entirely different view. It’s not too much! It’s just too much to imagine right now.
All of a sudden, your eyes have to adjust. You’re thinking, but this one only has one deck. Why is this on the list? Take a closer look and you begin to see why this is still a yacht billionaires appreciate.
This is new. It’s like a couch on the top of the boat. Only it can fit your family and friends, plus a few more if they make some phone calls. It’s not bad living if you ask a billionaire. Sometimes, they enjoy the simpler things in life too.
You don’t see a cabin like this on a smaller sized boat. They normally have single size beds made for one person or two people if they like cuddling and kissing. But this bed is in a room complete with a couch on one side, a desk on the other side, and a closet on both sides. Yep, beats the smaller boats your millionaire friends own.
Back to the cruise liners, or uh the billionaire yachts, this $190 million beast has everything you can imagine. From this angle, you can just about see it all from the many decks, the pool, the Jacuzzi, and everything else you’re missing in your life.
You step up to the top deck with a pool and you have such an awesome view. It feels like you’re on top of the world. Then, you realize that there is still another deck that’s even higher. How high does this boat go?
You’re calling B.S. on this one. You’re sitting there looking at it and calling it a cruise liner. Some corporation owns this and takes the poor on the only vacations they can afford. But, that’s not true. David Geffen of Geffen Records owns this $200 million yacht and it is all his.
Main Dining Area
With 82 rooms, it’s no surprise that it has a Main Dining Area. That means it has other dining areas. That’s so that if you’re on one side of the yacht when you get hungry, you don’t have to walk a couple miles to get something to eat. Just if you want to enjoy dinner in an insanely big room.
You’ve looked at some really nice pieces of art. Now, you’re looking at this one and wondering what makes it so special. The understatement of its design is actually perfect for it. Why make the outside look more than what it is when you can focus on the inside and make it better all around?
Look at the wall! That slate look makes the spa a perfect place to relax. The bronze that completes the vibe is actually the theme throughout the yacht. From the Jacuzzi to the gym and even to the elevators that take you from floor to floor. Elevator? Yes, elevator! One of the reasons why the Barcarella is on the list.
Nasser Al Rashid owns this $210 million yacht that makes it the most expensive sea vessel on the list this far. Look at it! You can see that it stands out just by looking at it in this picture. When they were making it, the builders were worried whether or not it was even going to fit into the sea!
Awe look at that cute little boat beside the Mirqab. Some millionaire bought that the other day and was so proud to take it out for a spin. That is until he met the behemoth Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber bin Muhammad Al Thani bought for a quarter of a billion dollars. Wondering who that is with the long name? The former Prime Minister of Qatar, the nation with the most oil. He’s so rich, settling for a smaller name just wasn’t going to do.
This what they call a fast yacht. It IS actually a yacht. But, it has an engine that might be able to blow some speed boats out of water. Then, you take a closer look at it and you suddenly realize why it’s on a list full of expensive yachts.
Imagine hanging out on that deck. You have a front deck and an awesome back deck with a bar. There is more than enough room to catch a tan. But, look at that communication system on top. That thing looks like it can pick up radios from the other side of the world, steal internet from any house on the planet, and probably get binary code signals from aliens in the next galaxy over.
Then, you go inside and it’s everything you would expect. Huge rooms that embarrass five star hotels. Artwork that is probably worth more than they do in the museums. And plush furniture that you would never find in IKEA.
Russian Oligarch Roman Abramovich bought this beast for a cool $300 million. If you’ve been keeping track, that’s the most anyone has spent on a yacht so far on this list. But, Roman lost this beauty in a divorce settlement. The new owner is none other than the yacht collector himself, David Geffen.
When Carnival has to take a boat to the shop, they call David Geffen. It’s easy to see why Geffen likes these things. They are great for playing hide and seek. Take the jet skis out. Take the helicopter to land. This is how you live it up when you have more money than everyone else.
Those little boats on the top deck of this one look like pieces from Battleship. Some people say it has a humble outside, but a dynamic interior. And that’s about the time you ask, who are these people? Have they completely lost touch with the rest of us?
Forget the movie theaters you go to in malls. You can live in this room watching movie after movie while popping popcorn and filling up on soda. It will make you feel like you’re IN the movie.
Look at that view out the huge windows. What a way to live your life? That bed is more huge than any bed in existence. Relax by the windows and have a drink while you look out over the sea. It’s too much. I would not leave that room if they would ever let me in it.
The design is a little different than any other on the list. But, so is the yacht. It has vintage written all over it. But, it’s definitely a comfortable room that can hold more people than you can on the street in front of your house. And you can get this one too if you would like. Just cough up about a half a million a week and it’s all yours.
