#2. Superyacht Azzam – $600 million
Yes, this yacht is expensive, and it’s expensive because it’s not only an interior-exterior designer made yacht, but is also world’s largest superyacht. Owned by the president of the United Arab Emirates, Khalifa Al Nahyan, this is world’s second most expensive yacht. German ship-builders Lürssen Yachts took four years to construct the Azzam and its 50 private suites. The price of the yacht is put into context however when compared to Sheikh Khalif’s enormous net worth of $17.9 billion.
Worth more than the last four yachts in our countdown combined, Eclipse is a 536 foot yacht with 24 guest rooms, two helipads, a cinema, hair salon, disco, restaurant and a mini submarine as well. Yes, a submarine! This was purchased by Chelsea FC’s Russian oligarch owner Roman Abramovich in 2010. At that time the 536-foot Eclipse was the world’s largest yacht. It is also rumoured to possess a laser defense to stop paparazzi from photographing guests when they are unwinding on the yacht.
