What is a SuperYacht?

A superyacht (or super yacht, or mega yacht) is a large and usually, privately-owned yacht, which is professionally crewed and extremely expensive. (A few are owned by state organizations.)

What does a Yacht cost?

A Luxury yachts generally cost more than US$ 10 million, although the most expensive can stretch to several hundred million dollars. Eclipse, owned by Roman Abramovich, is thought to be the most expensive superyacht, and is rumored to have cost more than a billion US dollars. (The actual build price, will probably have been considerably less, around US$ 500 million.)

They are owned by the Richest People on Earth

Most luxury yachts are owned by extremely wealthy individuals. For example someone who purchases a US$ 10 million yacht, will probably have to have a net worth of more than US$ 20 million,  as he will not want to spend all his money on a boat. The larger superyachts (longer than 80 meters or 260 feet) are invariably owned by billionaires.

The Running cost of a Yacht

The yearly running costs of a luxury yacht (including crew, maintenance, insurance and fuel) roughly account for 10% of the build price, or US$10 million a year on a US$100 million vessel. It seems smarter to charter a yacht….

The largest Yachts in the World

Nowadays the largest yachts are owned by Arabs or Russians. The biggest yacht in the world is Azzam (180 meters/590ft) built for the Emir of Abu Dhabi. The second largest is Eclipse (172 metres/564ft) owned by the Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. Abramovich currently has two yachts: Eclipse and Sussurro (although Sussurro is rumored to be owned by his ex-wife, as part of a divorce settlement). Until 2014 Abramovich also owned the expedition yacht Luna, but he sold her to Azerbaijani billionaire Farkhad Akhmedov.

The largest Yacht by Volume (or gross Tonnage)

The largest yachts are not necessarily the world's longest. One of the largest boats measured by volume is Al Salamah. Built for Prince Sultan of Saudi Arabia, it was put up for sale in 2012 (after Prince Sultan died) with an asking price of EUR 250 million (US$350 million). The new Dilbar, built for Alisher Usmanov also seems to be one of the largest yachts in the world. The largest sailing yacht will be ‘Sailing Yacht A’, under construction for Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko. The longest yacht is Azzam.

Modern Yachts

One of the most modern is a yacht called, simply, A that was built for the Russian billionaire Andrei Melnichenko. Another very modern boat is YAS, a 140-meter yacht which Sheikh Hamdan of the United Arab Emirates converted out of a warship.

Famous yachts

The most famous of them all is probably the yacht Kingdom 5 KR owned by Prince Al Waleed bin Talal (a cousin of the King of Saudi Arabia). It featured in the James Bond movie “Never Say Never Again”. The members of the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia own dozens of yachts.

Superyacht Owners - UHNWI

Superyachts are often purchased by UHNWI or Ultra High Net Worth Individuals. A UHNW is some one with net assets over US$ 30 million although some experts calculate with an amount of US$ 50 million. It is estimated that the world population of UHNWI is around 200,000 individuals. Around 5% of these UHNWI, or 10,000 individuals, own or frequently use a superyacht. The mean net worth of a superyacht owner is estimated at US$ 680 million, a figure no doubt influenced by the relative high number of billionaire Russian yacht owners. The average age of a super yacht buyer is estimated around 65 years.

Famous Yacht Owners

The most famous UHNWI yacht owners include Roman Abramovich and Larry Ellison. US Presidential candidate Donald Trump has been owner of the yacht Trump Princess, while the world’s richest man Bill Gates does not own a yacht. He owns a large house though, watch Bill Gates’ house here.

The Yacht Industry

It is expected that the amount spent on superyachts worldwide, is increasing 25% the coming 5 years. There is a trend towards expedition yachts, in stead of (fast) displacement yachts, but also new built yachts seem to grow bigger over the years.


Displacement -  Displacement or displacement tonnage is the weight of water that a ship displaces when it is floating, which in turn is the weight of a ship (and its contents).

Gross Tonnage - Gross tonnage (often abbreviated as GT, G.T. or gt) is a unitless index related to a ship's overall internal volume

Beam - The beam of a ship is its width at the widest point as measured at the ship's nominal waterline. Beam may also be used to define the maximum width of a ship's hull, or maximum width plus superstructure overhangs.

Draft - The draft (American) or draught (British) of a ship's hull is the vertical distance between the waterline and the bottom of the hull (keel), with the thickness of the hull included. Draft determines the minimum depth of water a ship or boat can safely navigate.

Sloop - A sloop is a sailing boat with a single mast and a fore-and-aft rig. A sloop has only one head-sail.

Ketch - A ketch is a sailing craft with two masts. The distinguishing characteristic of a ketch is that the forward of the two masts (the "mainmast") is larger than the after mast

Range - The distance a motor yacht can sail without refueling

Nautical Mile - A nautical mile (symbol M, NM or nmi) is a unit of distance, set by international agreement as being exactly 1852 meters (about 6,076 feet), compared with the 5,280 feet in a statute mile.

Knot - The knot is a unit of speed equal to one nautical mile (1.852 km) per hour, approximately 1.151 mph

UHNWI -A UHNW is some one with net assets over US$ 30 million
