At 100 feet long, The History Supreme may not be the largest of the most expensive yachts, but when you have a yacht built of 10,000 kilograms of solid gold and platinum, you are sure to have the priciest yacht within any point at sea.

No details were spared by the owner, a wealthy Malaysian businessman named Robert Knok.

Gold and platinum can be found on nearly every feature of the yacht from its decks and railings to its staircases and bedrooms.

#2 Eclipse – $1,5 Billion

At 533 feet long, The Eclipse is the second largest mega yacht found throughout the entire world. The Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich has equipped his vessel with technology able to detect intruders and deadly missiles.

With two helipads, bulletproof glass, and a mini-submarine that can be deployed down to 50 meters, this yacht may just be one of the safest on the list as well.

#3 Streets of Monaco – $1,1 Billion
