The £3 billion yacht

As our idea of luxury might be getting a ready meal from Marks rather than Tesco, we're struggling to find the right words to describe this.

Back in 2008, a depressingly rich Malaysian businessman comissioned a Liverpudlian jeweller to create the world's most decadent yacht. Quite a challenge as yachts tend to corner that market pretty well as it is.

Three years later and the 'History Supreme' has arrived to make all non-billionaires feel slighted. The vessel is worth £3 billion and before you ask how the hell a yacht could be worth that much, chill out, as we're just getting to all that.

Here's a breakdown:

  • It was made using 100,000kg of precious metals
  • It boasts a solid gold anchor, while the hull is also wrapped in a thin layer.
  • Overall the yacht contains 1% of the world's gold.
  • The sleeping quarter includes a wall made of stone from a meteor and a genuine T-Rex bone.

It's enough to make every charity in the world weep unstoppably.
