whos that billionaire?
£3bn gold yacht is world's most expensive | The Sun |News
THIS gold-plated superyacht is said to be the most expensive on the planet — worth a staggering £3BILLION.
The British-designed vessel is adorned with 100 tons of gold — covering more than half its surface.
The 100ft craft, which has been billed as the world's most unique yacht, has sleeping quarters covered in platinum and a statue made from the bone of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

The deck, dining areas, rails and anchor were also made from precious metals including platinum. The History Supreme — designed by Liverpool jeweller Stuart Hughes — puts even Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich's swanky yacht in the shade.

The billionaire's 533ft Eclipse, which has its own missile defence system and escape submarine, is the world's biggest private yacht — but at £750million it is a snip compared to this creation.
Stuart, 40, who took three years to build the History Supreme for a Malaysian businessman, said: "It was probably the most mammoth task ever."

Stuart — who also made a £5million diamond-wrapped iPhone — added: "I've covered all sorts of things in gold but this has got to be my most ambitious project yet. This will never be topped.
"The businessman just approached us and asked us whether we could do it. He wanted a plane doing as well, but the thing would never take off if we did.
"So he said, 'Can you do the yacht?' and I said, 'We'll give it a crack.' Then it was pretty much a case of can you make this gold, can you make that gold?
"We just did what we were told and are delighted with the result."
The yacht was built in Italy and completed in Malaysia two weeks ago.
