1. Jay Z and Beyonce - Altitude

Although this power couple has yet to purchase a yacht of their own, they are no strangers to renting the best superyachts on the water. Their last adventure cost them $377,000 for one week at sea.

More about Altitude:

This superyacht also has a dedicated water sports boat with an outboard motor, two wave runners, a catamaran, one sailing dinghy, a 15 foot water trampoline, fishing equipment and snorkeling equipment. And just in case that isn't enough to tire you out,  Altitude has it's own private gym equipped with a spinning bike, cross trainer, running machine, and weights. Altitude has three spacious aft decks with lots of open seating, lounging and dining areas. And just in case the paparazzi show up, Beyoncé and Jay-Z can retreat to their split-level owner's suite, complete with his and hers bathrooms, an observation lounge, and study.

2. Giorgio Armani - Main

Giorgio Armani the fashion designer owns this 213' superyacht that cost him just shy of $60million USD to build. I am not sure what the name means or where it comes from, but Giorgio Armani actually owns another two smaller superyachts so this author assumes he ran out of ideas and kept forgetting what the biggest (main) boat was.

It took 30 months to build at Italy's prestigious Codecasa shipyards and cost him more than $60 million (USD) in final production cost. The interiors are dressed in his favorite suit shades of gray and beige, set off with light birchwood floors and blinds, and dark-green lacquered walls that match the hull. The rigorous Armani pen is everywhere, from the patterned silk wall coverings and Armani Casa furniture in the staterooms to the underbelly of the boat, where the engines are white and spotless and four washing machines are stacked neatly across from four dryers in the laundry room. Aside from parties, the yacht also hosts photo shoots for various high fashion magazines.

3. Robert Cavalli - Robert Cavalli

It seems I missed my calling and should have trained as a fashion designer!? First Giorgio and then Dolce & Gabbana and now Robert Cavalli?!
Fashion designer Roberto Cavalli from Florence, Italy is well-known for his exotic printed designs. His yacht named Baglietto clearly shows Cavalli’s influence in designing. This 41-meter long yacht has a distinctive eye-catcher combination of color that you can immediately notice even if the yacht is a quite distance away.

Named after himself and measuring 42 metres in length, this Baglietto built superyacht has 15rooms and spends its life hosting lavish parties held by the fashion designer and his high class friends.

4. Johnny Depp – Vajoliroja

Our first real celebrity, Johnny Depps' Gorgeous sailing vessel is probably one of the smallest superyachts on this list and yet is without doubt one of the nicest.

JOhnny Depp owns this sailing superyacht

Perhaps he spent too long as Captain Jack Sparrow, or maybe he just loves the ocean and the movie has nothing to do with anything. I prefer the former and I'll stick with that one...
The yacht was built by Proteksan Turquoise in Turkey and is considered to be a modern classic superyacht. It measures 47 meters long and the name of Vajoliroja is a combination of the names in Depp’s family. “Va” is his ex-girlfriend Vanessa Paradis, “jo” is for the actor, “liro” is for his daughter Lily Rose and “ja” is for his son Jack. Priced at $33 million, this yacht accommodates up to ten guests and has a crew of eight. There is a formal dining room, library, outdoor seating areas, master suite, and four cabins for guests. In the toy department, there are tenders, kayaks, windsurfers, water-skis, wake board, and snorkel gear.

5. Steven Spielberg – Seven Seas

This Superyacht is like watching one of his many movies....Amazing, breathtaking and impressive from every angle!

The acclaimed director Steven Spielberg is the owner of Seven Seas, an 86-meter yacht built by Oceanco from a design by the Nuvolari Lenard Design company. At 282 feet long, and priced at $200 million, it boasts luxury amenities for 12 guests and a crew of 26. There is a large master stateroom with a study and private deck, a helipad, indoor cinema, and an infinity pool with a 15-foot glass wall that converts to a movie screen so the director and his guests can take in a film while swimming. The interior is adorned in walnut, teak and rosewood. The Cayman Island-flagged vessel can travel at 20 knots, and a special stabilizing system in the hull reduces seasickness - something that even Steven himself can't escape from.

6. Tiger Woods – Privacy

The way Tiger's golf game has been going lately I can imagine he would struggle to hit the ocean driving from the deck of his superyacht - not that I can talk LOL...

Measuring 155' in length and costing Tiger a cool 20 million, Privacy consists of a main deck where there is a large bar and a jacuzzi that can fit up to eight people.
