Owning a luxury yacht typically means you’re rich - filthy stinking rich.
It’s synonymous with wealth and is a symbol showing luxury, class, extravagance, and opulence. All of this is due to their very high price point, making them one of the most expensive luxury items you can buy. Many people dream of being able to simply step foot on a few luxury yachts sometime in their life. They imagine partying the day away near an island with fruity cocktails by their side and other luxury yachts surrounding.
Unfortunately, the majority of us will never have this dream come true. Why? Well, unless you have enough money to own one yourself, know someone who does, or just get crazy lucky, it just won't happen. But all of us who love luxury yachts and dream of them daily can still hope, right?
To be honest, I’m not sure there are any many yachts out there that WOULDN’T be considered luxury yachts. Considering how expensive they are (even the cheapest ones) and what they entail, they would still be deemed luxury yachts in general. Either way, let's take a look at some of the most expensive luxury yachts that money can buy.

1. Streets of Monaco
Streets of Monaco is one of the most expensive luxury yachts out there costing a bit over $1.1 billion. Its name gives way to one of the most profound features aboard. The feature I’m talking about is that it's modeled off a section of Monte Carlo in Monaco city. To explain, this astounding, 500 foot luxury yacht portrays scaled down reproductions of landmarks from the billionaire area of Monaco.
Some of these include the notorious Monte Carlo Casino, the Monte Carlo racetrack, Hotel de Paris, and La Rascasse. Streets of Monaco also consists of tennis courts, swimming pools and spectacular living quarters mimicking only the best hotels in Monaco. There are seven guest suites for up to 16 people as well as reception rooms, bathrooms, dressing rooms and balconies.
For the luxurious billionaire who owns the boat, there is a main apartment the size of a luxury penthouse which extends over 4,800 square feet. Additionally, there’s a mini waterfall, BBQ facilities, helicopters, cafe-bar with underwater views, submarines, and room for boats and jetskis to store. All of this combined makes it easy to understand why it’s not only one of the most expensive luxury yachts, but one of the best!
This yacht easily makes our most expensive luxury yachts list coming in at $1.5 billion. Built by Blohm and Voss of Hamburg, the current owner is Russian billionaire, Roman Abramovich. Not only is Eclipse the second most expensive luxury yacht, it’s also the second largest in the world at 536 feet. Due to its large size, there is more than enough space for many awesome features.
A few of those features include 24 guest cabins, some hot tubs, two swimming pools, and even a disco hall. Oh, and don't forget about the mini submarine (able of submerging 50 metres underwater), two helicopter pads, and three launch boats either! Something great this luxury yacht focuses on that other luxury yachts may not is security. It’s fitted with intruder detection systems and a missile defense system. In the bedroom and bridge of the yacht, there’s also fitted armor plating and bulletproof windows.
On top of that, the vessel boasts an anti-paparazzi shield that contains lasers which sweep the surrounding area. If lurking photographers are detected, a light is shone directly upon the camera to prevent photographs from being taken. Lastly, to maintain this marvelous ship, a 70 member crew is required. So you’ll always be taken care of! All together, this is one of the best luxury yachts - especially for those wanting safety and privacy.
3. History Supreme
Out of all the luxury yachts in the world, the most expensive is History Supreme costing a whopping $4.5 billion! Only 100 feet long, this floating extravagance was designed by the famous UK luxury designer, Stuart Hughes. It took over 3 years to fully complete and was then purchased by an anonymous Malaysian businessman.
You might be wondering why it costs so much considering its small size compared to other luxury yachts on our list. To answer you, the insane purchase price is due to the 100,000 kg of solid gold and platinum used to assemble the liner. This gold and platinum spreads the entirety of the vessel from the base to the dining area, rails, staircases, deck and anchor. Another remarkable characteristic of this luxury yacht is the extraordinary master bedroom area. With a wall feature made from meteorite rock and a statue made from genuine Tyrannosaurus Rex bones, this luxury yacht is definitely different from other luxury yachts out there!
Aside from these features, you will find even more on this super yacht. First, there’s a 68 kg, 24 carat gold Aquavista Panoramic Wall Aquarium that adorns the master suite. Second, you will find an extremely rare 18.5 carat diamond liquor bottle worth $45 million alone. Third, and finally, it even boasts an iPhone wrapped in 500 cut diamonds. These 500 diamonds include two interchangeable diamonds over the home button, a 7.4 carat pink diamond, and a rare 8 carat diamond. With its price and all these features, it’s clear why it was one of the most expensive luxury yachts on our list.
