Ever wished you could just climb aboard a luxury yacht, forget life’s stresses and sail away into the sunset? Well, if we could, these would be the boats we’d pick! Here’s the 10 biggest, most impressive and most expensive yachts in the world.
1. History Supreme
Price: $4.8 billion
The History Supreme is the world’s largest and most expensive, super yacht. Owned by Robert Knok, it spans 100 feet in length and took three years to build. The wow factor? The structure includes 10,000 kilograms of solid gold and platinum which decorate the dining area, deck, rails, staircases, and anchor. The master suite features a meteorite rock wall, a statue made of Tyrannosaurus Rex bones, a 68kg 24-carat gold Aquavista Panoramic Wall Aquarium, and a liquor bottle adorned with a rare 18.5-carat diamond.
Price: $1.5 billion
Owned by the Russian billionaire Roman Abrahamovic, superyacht Eclipse comes with amazing, if not alarming, features: there are two helipads, a cinema, restaurant, disco, hair and beauty salon, 24 guest cabins, two swimming pools, a dance hall, hot tubs, a mini-submarine, an intruder detection missile system, armour plating, bulletproof windows and finally an anti-paparazzi shield with sweeping laser beams. The boat was built by Blohm and Voss, designed by Terence Disdale and spans 533-foot.
3. Streets of Monaco
Price; $1.1 billion
This 500 feet long luxury yacht is the definition of extra. It includes several miniatures of renowned landmarks from Monaco itself and is called a “floating city” thanks to the three-floor bedroom with a private lift, office, sundecks, balconies, café-bar, mini waterfall, barbecue pit, underwater viewing deck, helicopters, submarines, guest suites, dressing rooms, reception rooms and more.
Price: $600 million
At 590 feet long, Azzam is the longest luxury yacht in the world but also one of the fastest. Owned by a member of the UAE royal family, the interior design and decoration is done in the French style by Christophe Leonie.

6. Motor Yacht A
Price: $440 million
Reportedly owned by Russian tycoon Andrey Melnichenko, Motor Yacht A looks more like a stealth warship or military submarine rather that the luxury yacht it in fact is.
