10. Al Said Yacht — $300 Million

Rumor has it that the Al Said Yacht is owned by a prominent member of the very wealthy Oman royal family. It is worth mentioning that the sources of these rumors are very credible.

As many as 70 guests can be hosted onboard the Al Said. That’s not all; it can also accommodate a 50-piece orchestra and up to 154 crew members.

What more could anyone ask for? How about some security to protect the guests and the crew?

The Dubai luxury yacht is owned by a member of the UAE royal family, who decided to remain anonymous. According to trusted sources anyway.

6. The Flying Fox – $400 Million
Owner: Imperial Yachts, NOT Jeff Bezos
Rumor has it that Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon, bought this Superyacht in 2020, but that is one of the biggest myths in the superyacht world, but it is not as big as the one at the end of this blog post. This yacht is said to be owned by the makers, Imperial Yachts, and it was created to be the biggest charter yacht out there.
The Superyacht is the 14th largest yacht on Earth, boasting 136 meters in length. Designed by the award-winning designer Espen Oeino, the Flying Fox features a stunningly eye-catching hull, as well as an exquisite interior.

The price to charter this yacht for a week is… Only $4 Million
5. Motor Yacht A — $440 Million
Owner: Andrey Melnichenko
Andrey Melnichenko is a Russian business tycoon with a lot of cash to spare. One of the things he splurged on was the Motor Yacht A, which cost him $440 million.
This yacht looks more like a warship than a luxury yacht, but looks can be deceiving!
It was designed by Martin Francis and Philippe Start and was built by Blohm and Voss. They all did a great job on this vessel, as the features are nothing short of amazing.
Inside this 400-foot yacht, you will find a disco club, six guest suites, and a master bedroom. It even has rotating walls, which can transform guest suites into staterooms at the push of a button!
4. NORD – $500 Million
Owner: Alexei Mordashov
formerly known as Project Redwood and then Opus, Nord is one of the most controversial superyachts. Its design is not for anyone as Russian Owner Alexei Mordashov wanted something completely different from what the world is used to.

2. The Azzam Yacht — $600 Million
Owner: Owned by a member of the royal family of the UAE
It seems members of Arab royal families like to keep their expensive purchases discrete, as another anonymous UAE royal pops up on the list with the Azzam Yacht.
$600 million is not a small sum of money so that you can imagine all the luxuries on board this piece of machinery.
It is ranked as one of the fastest yachts in the world, and it is laced with the very best of French interior designs.
Christophe Leonie is a world-renowned interior designer, so you shouldn’t expect anything less than a magical interior.
1. The Eclipse — $1.5 Billion
Owner: Roman Abramovich
Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich sets sail aboard his $1.5 billion Eclipse yacht. And it is the second-largest luxury yacht in the world.
Security is guaranteed aboard this vessel, as it features a state-of-the-art intruder detection missile system. The entire body is armor-plated, and all the windows are bullet-proof!
It also has 24 guest cabins, two helipads, two swimming pools, several hot tubs, a dance hall, and a submarine.
Now for one of the biggest myths in the Superyacht’s world,
Myth: History Supreme Yacht —Worth $4.8 Billion
Owner: Robert Kuok
Said to be the most expensive Superyacht globally, built-in 2011; history supreme is supposedly worth $4.8 Billion.
It is said to be covered in gold.
Even though it is a lovely small yacht for some, this story is completely fake, but I can see why it broke the internet and went super-viral.
Even BusinessInsider fell for it and reported this story as accurate.
Anyways, please don’t fall for it guys, now you know that History Supreme doesn’t come close to the big boys on this list.
So, whose yacht do you like the most, and why?
Is the Flying Fox worth $400 Million, Abramovich’s armor-plated $1.5 billion yachts, or Alexei Mordashov’s $500 Million Nord?
