For example, when a wealthy person is able to purchase a US$ 10 million yacht. His net worth is probably between US$ 50 million and US$ 100 million. Similar, when you are able to purchase a US$ 50 million yacht. Your net worth will probably be a few hundred million dollar.
Only the world’s billionaires are able to purchase yachts larger than 80 met. Which will cost more than US$ 100 million. Some billionaires, like the late Paul Allen, even owned more than one superyacht.
