2. Rising Sun — Price:$ 200 million.
Length: 138.4 meters
We can say that it is a floating hotel with 82 luxurious rooms, which also has a basketball and a helipad. Happy owner of a yacht — David Geffen, the music producer. To buy such a boat need to be the same as Geffen, apply online for a loan in cash in all banks or rob a bank (just kidding!). Although credit idea is very good, but all the same boat is likely to be modest.
Let’s start this off by spending $200 million. Just for reference, many sports teams purchased in the 1990s cost about as much. It’s the same price as many large skyscrapers and older sports stadiums, and it’s more than the gross national product of a handful of small third world countries – but we’re spending it on a boat, and not just a boat but the cheapest boat on this list!
So what does our hard earned cash buy us? Well it bought David Geffen a large yacht that was originally owned by Larry Ellison, the CEO of Oracle. There’s a basketball court on it which can also be used as a helicopter landing pad, a movie theater, a wine cellar, and a total of 82 rooms scattered across five floors, all filled to the brim with opulence.
