Boys and their toys – Super Yacht toys August 20, 2006

Posted by Al in : travel , trackback

Some people in this world earn too much money. In fact it is ridiculous how much money some people must earn in order to own yachts this size. I remember reading somewhere that you could estimate the cost of a super yacht to be around $1,000,000 per metre in length. In which case some of these beauties weigh in at well over $100,000,000 – which is a lot of money. Now figure in the 25-30 string crew and then running costs where instead of MPG you work in Miles per Tonne of fuel – that really is a lot of money.

The slideshow in this report gives you the Top Trumps figures of size and gadgets, and by telling you who the owner is lets you work out whether you may have contributed to this toy. What they don’t show you is the inside, but some people charter their yachts out when they are not using them. So have a look at the inside of the Leander, which somehow got missed out of the slideshow.
