The largest private yacht in the world is the 180 meter-long Azzam, owned by the Emir of Abu Dhabi. Arab sheikhs, Russian oligarchs and American billionaires are battling to own the most luxurious and most expensive ship. The largest private yacht in the world cost around 600 million euros. The Azzam, which belongs to the Emir of Abu Dhabi, is a staggering 180 meters long. And it’s high maintenance - staff, diesel and servicing cost around ten million euros a year. These mega yachts are designed and furnished by top architects, like Philipp Starck. This film takes viewers onto some of the most expensive yachts in the world. Meet Norwegian ship designer Espen Oeino, who has inside knowledge of what this league of luxury really means. His clients’ requests have included a helicopter landing pad, and even a personal submarine on board. Along with destinations like Monaco, Miami and Dubai, yacht owners have recently also begun heading to more adventurous locations, like the Arctic Ocean.

    The 1% gets this life , the rest of us get lockdowns , budget food that is more or less just textured vegetable protein with some artificial flavors and colors and whatever seasonal vegetable is the cheapest , and pay most of our money to rent a house or apartment.

    First of all, that woman did NOT climb the mast. Why her & her husband were bragging that she climbs to the top of the mast every time she gets on a yacht is beyond me. Someone literally strapped her into a harness and hoisted her ass up! Secondly, this entire documentary is about people who have way to much an extremely gross amount of money. Dude filled his entire yacht with ultra expensive art just so the air, sea salt and humidity can destroy it. Guaranteed more than half of those people don't even fully enjoy their vessel or use all the amenities they just had to have on them. Call me crazy but I can have the time of my life on a frickn SeaDoo or on a regular boat...its all about the memories you make and the people you choose to make the memories with! Quality over quantity!

    Had a fancy 3 course meal and a drink today from Wendy's. Started off with the most elegant Idaho potatoes cut length-wise and fried in oil from America. Moved onto a lightly breaded and delicately minced chicken meat from the most prominent chicken factory. Then finished with a hand constructed, layered pastry with 100% beef and various wild greens with a house special aioli. All downed with the most refreshing carbonated drink sweetened with an extract from corn. Paid over 400 pennies but totally worth it for the experience.
