Don’t you hate it when one of your friends invites you to come aboard his yacht for the weekend and then you get there and the yacht barely has three bedrooms? The white wine hasn’t even been chilled yet, there’s hardly enough cocktail sauce for the shrimp that’s planned to be served. Why not just throw a dumpster into the ocean and let me float around inside that?
Well if you’re tired of being disappointed by your friends and their so-called “yachts” then show them how to do high-class right with one of these insanely luxurious yachts.
OKTO, Caribbean/Mediterranean: $500,000 per week
For a mere $500,000 you can rent out this bad boy for a whole week. This yacht is better than other yachts because it includes a helicopter landing pad (yes, only one helicopter landing pad, sorry,) an elevator, jacuzzi, pool, gym, and speedboat.
But if you don’t feel like spending half a million dollars then don’t worry, you can bring nine of your friends because they have five suites available. So that would make the price a measly $50,000 each. Just have your friends Venmo you or something.
There is also a crew of 17 people there to serve you, but I don’t know where they sleep, maybe in the water?
Enigma XK, Antarctica: $454,000 per week
Tired of slumming it in Antarctica? Then this yacht is for you.
In fact, you don’t even have to be in Antarctica because you can take a private jet straight there. Once you land you can chill out in the jacuzzi on the deck or hit the gym to show those penguins whose boss. There’s also a helicopter landing pad, so feel free to bring the helicopter on the private jet so you’ll have something to fly around there. You’ll even have WiFi so your Instagram is sure to stay popping.
There are 21 employees on the yacht ready to cater to your every need, and for $454,000 I assume they mean every need.
You, of course, can hike and kayak amongst the beautiful glaciers that make up Antarctica but you can even swim in pools that are warm from volcanic rocks below. Or you can throw the crew in the water and laugh. Why not? You’re rich!
M/Y Passion, The Galapagos: $95,000 per week
Look, Charles Darwin did a lot of great things, and I don’t want to belittle him, but come on, the guy vacationed like a dork. You don’t go to a beautiful place like the Galapagos to write a book, you dummy! You go on vacation to relax in style on yachts. That’s where M/Y Passion gets it right. This yacht is 48 meters long and is made to get you close to volcanoes, sea lions, giant tortoises, and iguanas. There’s even a panoramic sky lounge in the jacuzzi. Who needs Charles Darwin when you can be Charles Ballin?
Lamima, Papua New Guinea: $169,000 per week
This is the largest wooden sailing yacht in the world. I guess that’s worth taking for a spin. Check out the beautiful Papua New Guinea while in the spa quarter so you can get your sweat on and even do a yoga class led by a therapist on board. Or you can dive and snorkel some picturesque coral reefs or you can just get drunk and chill. The world is your oyster when you’re chilling on the world’s largest wooden yacht.
