World’s Most Famous Super Yachts
The world’s most famous super yachts are not necessarily the biggest or the most expensive, most of these super yachts are famous for more than just their size and cost. Custom yacht refitting and travels aside, Yacht Management shines a light on some of the most recognizable boats in the seven seas.
The Lady M
Remember that scene in The Wolf of Wall Street when Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) is rescued after watching his wife’s super yacht sink? Well the yacht they used in the movie is still very much afloat and available for rent at a whopping $125,000 a month. The movie dupe, famous super yacht that belonged to Jordan Belfort’s wife, the “Nadine”, she’s still at the bottom Mediterranean Sea. The famous Wolf of Wall Street yacht is 214.90 feet long; it was built and underwent custom yacht refitting in 2013.
The Octopus is known all over the world, and the custom bottom boat paint is clearly recognizable. You will probably even see it in the Fort Lauderdale intercostal from time to time. This famous super yacht belongs to the lesser known co-founder, Paul Allen, who spends a great deal of his time traveling the world in his beloved yacht. The Octopus is 414.04 feet long and she had her last custom yacht refitting in 2008.
And then there’s the Dilibar, a yacht so big it should have its own postal code; a yacht so expensive that there is not even enough space on this blog to type out all the zeros. We are kidding, of course! This famous super yacht is owned by Russian multi-billionaire, Alisher Usmanov, who named it after his mother. The yacht is the 28th biggest in the world, at 360.89 feet long. Although Paul Allen’s Octopus is longer, the Dilibar is much taller.
