What do usually the children collect? Nowadays, collecting several types of Legos is the most widespread among many little boys and girls; in the past coloured, figured napkins or decorative wipes or postcards were enough, gladly swapping with them. But what do adults collect? Most of them are usually fan of different kinds of electronic equipment, computer games, books, cookware, and gastro accessories or even antique things. And what do billionaire adults actually collect?
The most popular “toys” for them are typically the luxury cars or motorboats, ships and superyachts. For their wallets, it is not stressful to operate a superyacht that could be much larger than the average man’s family home, equipped with every imaginable or unimaginable piece of equipment and accessories. For example, one or more swimming pools or Jacuzzis, helicopter parking, and many luxury rooms are the basic facilities. Even all of them is provided and maintained by a huge staff and the most modern security system.
Let’s know some information about the 10 biggest and most expensive luxury ships in a private property
1. The Maltese Falcon sailboat has an 88-meter hull, being powered by two 1,800hp diesel engines, having a top speed of 36 km/h. Its value is approximately HUF 33 billion. A staff of 18 is responsible for the safety of the sailboat while providing and managing all the luxury comfort.
2. Venus was designed by Steve Jobs. The price of the unique, modern, basic designed luxury ship is estimated at HUF 35 billion, having a top speed of 40 km/h; the total length is nearly 80 m and of course, it is equipped with numerous Mac displays and accessories.
3. Seven Seas is probably the most popular ship in the common knowledge and everyone has probably heard of it since its owner is the famous Steven Spielberg, whose estimated wealth is over HUF 950 billion, so it is no wonder that this 86 m mega yacht is worth HUF 54 billion. Of course, he needs to maintain a permanent staff of 23 people, but that is actually not a problem for himself. Spielberg has personally traveled 45,000 km with the boat, which is in his permanent use, but if he were not on board, he would gladly allow to rent it for HUF 280 million a week.
4. David Geffen’s name may also be familiar, who is able to exceed Spielberg’s ship. The HUF 54 billion Rising Sun is nearly 140 meters long, having a top speed of 52 km/h, which is really huge number for a ship of this size, having 8000 square meter, 5 floors and 82 luxury rooms. A crew of 45 is really needed for this ship.
5. Dilbar is privately owned 110-meter ship by a Russian businessman, valued at HUF 71 billion. It has practically everything we can imagine or more than a human is able to imagine…
6. The total number of crews of the 5 ships listed before is not as huge as the Alsaid’s staff with 154 permanent people employed. The length of the “toy” is 155 meters. It was built in 2006 for the Sultan of Oman. It could only be reached by private helicopter.
7. Yacht named “A” is also linked to the name of a Russian businessman; the length is 119 meter and its worth is HUF 87 billion. Of course, according to the Russian custom, the submarine as basic equipment is as standard as the plenty of security cameras, doors and motion sensors.
8. Yas is the owner of a Sultan from the Emirates. The estimated value of the ship is almost HUF 100 billion. For example, the Venus is dwarfed by the others.
