Rooms with the utmost comfort, multiple swimming pools, dance floors, cinema halls, bars and lounges and an endless array of amenities fit and welcome the billionaires who own the world’s most expensive superyachts.

Each of these yachts is powered by some of the world’s best engines and constructed from materials of the finest quality, and they slice through the seas at high speeds with their owner feeling no discomfort, justifying their high prices. Without any doubt, every yacht is a rare work of art.

The biggest yachts in the world are famously dubbed superyachts because of their size, luxurious amenities, and, of course, their heavy price tag.

According to TheRichest, below are the most expensive yachts in the world. In order to purchase these, however, you’d need to have a net worth of hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars.


10. Pelorus – $300 million

This superyacht was rebuilt in 2003 and is considered one of the largest yachts in the world. Its current owner, Hong Kong real estate tycoon Samuel Tak Lee, is rumored to have paid at least $1 billion to acquire it from a member of the UAE royal family.

The 115 meter long yacht was named Pelorus from the Greek word pelorio (πελώριο), which means vast. One of its most remarkable features is a private deck attached to the master bedroom, which cannot be seen from any part of the vessel.


9. Al Said – $300 million

Al Said is owned by the Sultan of Oman and is the seventh longest superyacht in the world with a length of 159 meters. Superyacht Times reports that Al Said can accommodate up to seventy guests and more than 150 crew members.

The vessel was built by Lürssen in 2008. Details of its luxurious comforts are unknown, but one of its most famous features is a concert hall that can house a fifty-piece orchestra.


8. Radiant – $320 million

This luxurious superyacht was built in 2009. It is currently owned by Abdullah Al Futem, a multi-millionaire from the United Arab Emirates.

Radiant is the thirty-second largest luxury yacht in the world, and it has enough space to accommodate twenty guests and forty-four crew members. Its luxurious amenities include a gym, sauna, hammam, sauna, massage room, garage, movie theater, and jacuzzi on the deck.

The decks are made of teak wood, and its exterior is made of aluminium.

It has also been reported that the ship is armed with a powerful water cannon that can repel potential pirate attacks.


7. A or Motor Yacht A – $323 million

Motor Yacht A is reportedly owned by Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko.

Its unique exterior design resembles a stealth warship, more particularly the Zumwalt-class destroyer of the US Navy. Launched in 2008, it was built by Blohm+Voss and designed by Martin Francis and Philippe Starck.

Motor Yacht A is 122 meters long and considered one of the largest luxury yachts, as the vessel has a glass-bottom swimming pool above a disco, in addition to two swimming pools.

A helicopter hangar and a speedboat measuring around nine meters are also part of the yacht. Additionally, it houses six guest suites.


6. Serene – $330 million


The engineering and design of this yacht’s stunning appearance is the creation of Espen Oeino, a world-renowned yacht designer.

The state-of-the-art vessel was built in Italy in August 2011. Yuri Scheffler, a Russian vodka tycoon, commissioned Fincantieri, an Italian shipyard, to build it to his specifications. One of the largest superyachts in the world, Serene can carry up to about 64 passengers.

It is currently owed by Mohammed bin Salman, the Crown Prince of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and one of the world’s most powerful men.

The vessel, which is famously dubbed the “Floating Palace,” has a snow room, a steam room, an outdoor cinema, a pool with seawater, a Hammam beauty center, a piano room, an observation room, a beach club and a dance floor among the many luxurious facilities. There is also an underwater viewing room inside the boat to observe marine life.

Dubai is reportedly owned by the Prime Minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The yacht was constructed by Blohm+Voss in 2006.

It measures 161.8 meters and is one of the most extravagant superyachts in the world, equipped with a mosaic swimming pool, several sunbathing areas and jacuzzis, a split-level owner’s deck, a helipad, and a circular glass staircase, which changes color when lit from above.

Formerly known as Topaz, this superyacht measures 147 meters and has two diesel generators that provide power to the stabilizers for all onboard systems in case of an emergency. It is currently owed by UAE’S Deputy Prime Minister Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan.


3. Azzam – $600 million

The 179-metre-long vessel has held the title of the world’s largest private yacht since 2013. Built by German shipbuilder Lürssen Yachts, the boat combines luxury with technology.
