Huge Private Yachts, and a Submarine

The super-billionaires of the world have to spend their gobs of money somehow.  From giant homes to private jets they have the resources to indulge.  The billionaires that like the sea buy the biggest private yachts ever imagined.  They cost tens of millions of dollars, often more expensive than their homes.  The costs continue with the upkeep, crews, equipment and helicopters that go with them.  The super yachts are over 400 feet (130 meters) long .  Most of them are owned by Russian oligarchs, Arab sheiks, Greek shipping magnets and American billionaires.

Tiger Woods has a yacht called Privacy.  But it is minor league in comparison to what the super-billionaires sail.

The first picture is Tiger’s yacht.  The last two pictures is Bill Allen’s (co-founder of Microsoft) behemoth named Octopus.  It is 414 feet long.   The size of many modern navy frigates.
