Inside £3.6 billion superyacht History Supreme covered in gold – but the real reason for its price will blow your mind – The Sun | The Sun08/02/2022
THERE are some things in life you just can’t wrap your head around — this is one of them.
Unless you have a spare £3.6 billion laying around, the closest you will probably ever get to experiencing this 30-metre long vessel is from a distance.
The yacht, named History Supreme, is covered in 100,000kg of gold, platinum and jewels and has a statue made from genuine Tyrannosaurus Rex bones.
Yes, you read right. The master bedroom has genuine dinosaur bone shaved from a skeleton was sourced from Arizona, USA. Pieces of the thigh bone alone come in at about £68,000.
It took world-renowned UK designer Stuart Hughes just over three years to complete.
Mr Hughes told news.com.au that he was quite excited when approached by a friend in the yachting circle to design the luxury liner. He had free reign to construct it how he liked.

The History Supreme has been dubbed the “world’s most expensive yacht”, worth £3.6 billion.
Mr Hughes said much of the staggering sum is owed to its gold and dinosaur bone features.
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.
Also on board is a luxury liquor bottle featuring an 18.5 carat diamond, one of the world’s rarest, along with a panoramic wall aquarium made from 68kg of 24 carat gold.

If that’s not enough some of other on-board features include an iPhone wrapped in 500 cut diamonds including two interchangeable diamonds fitted over the “home button”, a 7.4 carat pink diamond and a rare eight carat diamond.
If you were contemplating a purchase, it’s too late.
The yacht was bought by an anonymous Malaysian businessman for £2.53 billion back in 2011 — Mr Hughes never got to meet him but said he would have like to.
It is unknown if the mystery buyer still has the luxurious boat.
Since the boat’s creation the History Supreme has remained “king bling of the high seas” with no other luxury liner reported to have exceeded its mammoth price tag.
The second reported “world’s most expensive yacht” belongs to Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich.
His £1billion luxury liner Eclipse, has its own missile defence system and a submarine.
There are 24 guest cabins, two swimming pools, hot tubs, a sauna, and even a nightclub.
It also boasts a cinema, conference room, children's playroom and a hair salon.
