Superyachts are arguably the ultimate symbols of wealth. Complete with luxurious amenities such as comfortable rooms, multiple pools, dance floors, cinemas, bars, and lounges, the world’s wealthiest individuals pay millions for these maritime emblems of wealth.
Each one of these yachts is powered by some of the world’s best engines and constructed from materials of the finest quality. Every superyacht is a blend of engineering excellence and artistic endeavor.
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 RankRed, 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.

The 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.
