The superyacht industry has founded itself on a reputation of class, elegance and pure luxury. And, for good reason. Considering the time and professionalism which goes into constructing these works of art as well as the sheer beauty of them, the cost of a superyacht is worth every penny.
Today, we’re taking a deep dive into the world’s billion-dollar superyachts to explore some of their astonishing features as well as their true cost.
So, let’s jump in!
In exploring the world’s most elite and extravagant superyachts, we couldn’t overlook the incredible marvel that is Eclipse. Coming in at a whopping $1.2 billion, Eclipse is among the most expensive superyachts in the world.
The 162.5-metre-long superyacht was built by the much-loved German shipbuilder that is Blohm + Voss.
What’s more, Eclipse’s luxurious exterior and interior is complimented beautifully by a wealth of additional features on board. From water skis to a sunlounge deck, there’s a whole lot of room to enjoy life here.
Built by the industry leading company, Lurssen Yachts, Flying Fox is now the largest superyacht available for charter. With a cost of €700 million / $820 million, Flying Fox remains in a league of its own. At 136 metres in length and with a maximum power of 12,000 hp, Flying Fox is grand in all ways possible.
With its alluring exterior, gigantic size and chic interior, Flying Fox embodies every sense of the word sophisticated. So, it comes as no surprise that this superyacht costs just under $1 billion to buy.
Whilst it may not be within everyone’s budget, the beauty and awe-inspiring nature of Flying Fox is worth simply dreaming about. What’s more, with space to fit 22 guests in 11 cabins as well as a crew capacity of 54 and 25 cabins, there’s plenty of room to enjoy this marvel.
Considered an iconic superyacht, Rising Sun is again a great example of what’s possible when genius engineering and design come together to create a work of art.
Thanks to Jon Bannenberg’s professionalism and vision, Rising Sun employs an incredible use of structural glass and chic finishes.
Owned by Hollywood billionaire, David Geffen, Rising Sun was home to the superstar this April during quarantine. And, looking at this elegant, awesome superyacht, we’re not surprised Geffen chose to self-isolate on such a gorgeous, special and spacious creation.
With an estimate cost of $700 million to $800 million to buy.
Whilst the climate may not be one of immense spending and growth, the pure luxury, beauty and craftsmanship of the superyacht industry is well worth marvelling in.
In exploring three of the world’s most expensive and incredible superyachts, it’s clear the industry is one founded on a mix of professionalism, innovation, design and a pure love for all things yachts.
