Many celebrities are so ridiculously wealthy that they often don’t know what to do with their riches.
Most of them collect houses, cars, designer items, and expensive jewels, but even after all that, they have enough money left in their bank accounts to splurge on other expensive habits — vacations being one of them.
And what better way to spend your free time than lounging around an expensive yacht that costs more than a house?
Well, to common folks, buying a yacht might sound like an unnecessary expense but celebrities don’t think twice before making a purchase, and why should they?
And these aren’t just any regular vessels, they are multi-million dollar yachts which have everything from bathrooms with hot tubs to helipads to basketball courts, and Jacuzzis too! We really can’t compete with that.
A yacht is definitely not something that can be bought by anyone. You have to be stinking rich to charter one, let alone own it. We are not talking about the small basic yachts many can purchase with years of saving. We’re talking boats that cost $20-million and upwards that are luxurious, and huge!
Many people have gone broke trying to own vessels they really can’t afford. Let’s face it; if you don’t own a home, you have no business buying a boat. Leave this kind of luxuries to people with millions and billions.
Some of these celebrities don’t just own one but several yachts, and literally wake up in the morning having a hard time one.
Giorgio Armani is a fashion icon with not one but two yachts. He has a main yacht and a side yacht. Yes! In his world there exists the idea of a side yacht.
Most of us don’t even have two cars. “Main”, his central vessel, is about 200 foot and his side yacht is 163 foot long. You see how you wake up and try to decide what shoes to wear? Armani tries to decide whether to take his main or side boat on a cruise.
Roman Abramovich may not be a famous Hollywood star or fashion icon but he owns a football team. And that counts.
This guy was valued at $11 billion in 2018 by Forbes magazine and might just be the richest in Israel. The wealthiest man in Israel is definitely going to get the second largest private yacht on earth.
Ever watch The Titanic? Now imagine you own that ship! And it’s private! His yacht, called Eclipse, takes 70 people to manage, has 24 cabins, a few helipads, and swimming pools. Several! It has an under-glow kit too! A sight for sore eyes.
The well-known Cristiano Ronaldo has a yacht too. This guy is paid millions to kick around a ball so he’s definitely going to buy a boat with all that money, which he has. And that too, a superyacht. For someone who makes $100 million a year, chartering a yacht for $50,000 every month is nothing.
David Geffen is another fella with an enormous boat. This film producer worked his way up from a mediocre life and now has a really big boat.
Even people who have no interest in yachts know about Jon Bannenberg’s Rising Sun which is easily the biggest vessel there is. Designed for Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, this spectacular vessel has changed ownership over the past few years and is currently in possession of David Geffen.
The mammoth of a vessel contains 82 private rooms with 82 Jacuzzis! Did we say celebrity yachts are bigger than a home? We meant 100 homes!
If you aren’t impressed already, the Rising Sun also has a helipad, wine cellar, and basketball courts. Honestly, this boat makes us hate our life.
Of course, when it comes to all things wealth, Richard Branson cannot be left behind. Branson’s yacht, Necker Belle, is a masterpiece in its own rights — simple, yet elegant just like its owner.
Although we admit he could have an even bigger boat, given his $4 billion net worth, this still works. It’s stylish, simple and stunning.
