A gold-plated superyacht built for its Malaysian owner is alleged to be worth £3 billion ($4.5 billion), making it the most expensive in the world.
If it’s true, History Supreme is indeed a history-making yacht. ..
UK designer Stuart Hughes claims the 30-metre long 'History Supreme' yacht is adorned with 100,000 kilograms of gold and platinum that covers more than half its surface and even comes with a statue made from the bone of a T-Rex dinosaur.
The base of the yacht as well as the deck, dining areas, rails and anchor are wrapped in solid gold and the sleeping areas are covered in platinum. There is also a wall feature in the master bedroom that is made from meteoric stone and an aquarium made from 68kg of 24 carat gold.
Also on board, a luxury liquor caraf featuring an 18.5ct diamond, one of the world’s rarest.
The 100-foot bespoke yacht was designed by Liverpool-based jeweller Stuart Hughes, 39, who took three years to complete the vessel.
According to reports in The Sun newspaper, the yacht was built in Italy and completed in Malaysia two weeks ago.
