I'm On A Boat! - 10 of the Biggest Yachts in the World!

  • Oct 28, 2010
I've always be fascinated by huge yachts and the lifestyle around the rich and famous who own these big ass boats. To give you an idea of how freaking big these yachts are. Number 1 on the list is 200 feet longer than a football field.  So sit back for my version of The Fabulous Life: I'm on a Boat! 

1
Eclipse
Yes. This is the biggest yacht in the world. Owned by Roman Abramovich, this bad boy is packing 11 cabins, 2 swimming pools, multiple hot tubs, a club, 2 helicopters, and a mini-sub. It takes 70 people to crew this boat alone! I guess that's what you get when you own Chelsea FC. Did I mention the Eclipse also has anti-paparazzi laser shields? That's right. If you try to take a picture of Roman on his boat, you get zapped with a laser.

Estimated cost: $1.2 billion US


2
Dubai (yacht)
How bummed are you if you're Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the ruler of the Emirate of Dubai? Sorry man... you only have the second largest yacht in the world. Tack on an extra 20 feet and you might be in the running.


3
Al Said
This awesome boat is owned by the Sultan of Oman. It's kind of crazy to think this thing is about 200 feet longer than a football field. 


4
Prince Abdulaziz
There are a lot of Saudi princes. In fact I've heard there are thousands of Saudi princes. The Abdulaziz might not be in human form but built in 1984 it's been around long enough to earn it's prince-hood! 


5
Al Salamah
This yacht has a hospital on board. That's all I'm saying.


6
Rising Sun
Larry Ellison the CEO of Oracle owned this boat for a while. Reading up on it I found some crazy facts. It has a basketball court, standard I guess. It's engines give out 50,000 horse power and it has 82 rooms on board. Yes 82 rooms!!!


7
Savarona
This is probably the most unique yachts of this list. Built to look like a sail boat with 2 masts, the MV Savarona is a pretty old yacht. It was launch in 1931 and at the time was the biggest in the world. The Turkish government actually owns this yacht and rents it to Turkish businessman Kahraman Sadıkoğlu. If you want to rent her from Turkey it'll cost you a bargain of $200,000 to $400,000 per week.  


8
Serene (yacht)
Not much is known about this boat other than the fact that it's not actually finish and once it is it'll be shipped of to a private owner. It supposedly is the most technologically advanced mega yacht out there today. You can see her in La Spezia, Italy sitting in a shipyard right now.


9
Octopus
My favorite of this list comes in at number 9. Octopus, owned by Microsoft's co-founder Paul Allen is by far the best looking yacht on this list. For some reason boats with a blue hull looks amazing.


10
HMY Britannia
I couldn't make this list without a ship from the Royal Navy could I? The HMY Britannia is now permanently moored but in her heyday she was the Royal Yacht of the British Royal Family. Built in the 1950 she has a lavish look with a blue hull. Little known fact, Charles and Diana took their honeymoon on this awesome ship.


What did you think of this list?

That's insane that all of the boats on this list are privately owned! I feel like it's kinda a waste of money considering that some of these boats are worth more than a small country's whole wealth, but then again, if you've worked hard for it -- then if you've got it, flaunt it. I wonder how often they host guests on these things and how many.... Thanks for sharing!
