The 25 Largest Yachts in the World, From Merely Enormous to Humongous

From the exceedingly large to the downright gargantuan, the top 25 largest yachts in the world continue to impress. Built by shipyards all over the world—from the Netherlands to the United Arab Emirates, Italy, the United States, Greece, and the United Kingdom, to name just a few—new launches and refits are delivered each year, at the request of owners around the globe. Some yards, such as Germany-based Lürssen, complete more than their share of the largest yachts. Of the top 25 featured here, the company has built 13, and that’s not even including the two built by Blohm+Voss, which it acquired. The below list changes a little every year, but some of these vessels have remained on the list for years. Here are the top 25 largest yachts in the world to date.

The Design Concept for the New Boeing 737 Max Jet is Out of This World

Boeing is known as a major producer of commercial aircrafts all over the world, but they also have a little side gig going that many aren’t aware of. It’s called the Boeing Business Jet program, and the luxury jets it produces are often referred to as BBJs for short.

Before you dig out your company checkbook, you might need a reality check on the chances of owning one. Even the cheapest selection in the lot is priced at just under $100 million.
