Owners of the World’s Most Expensive Superyachts
There’s competition even among the owners of mega yachts to see who has the best and biggest yacht. These most expensive yachts can be found mainly in the Caribbean and the Côte d’Azur, in places like Monaco and Saint-Tropez. Mega yachts like this are more like floating cities, with a whole army of domestic staff, than they are like “ordinary” yachts. It will not surprise you that the list of the most expensive yacht owners is populated by sheikhs and superstars.

This mega yacht is the proud property of Russian vodka magnate Yuri Scheffler, has a floorspace of no less than 14,000 square kilometers and is 135 meters long. The yacht is divided into seven floors where you will find several indoor and outdoor pools.
4. A – 390 million dollars
