Some of the most expensive yachts out there

Along with those amazingly hefty pay cheques, the one good thing about being a celebrity is that you get to acquire a number of totally ‘out of this world’ perks as well. This is one aspect that adds to the overall ‘advantage’ of being a celebrity – one that totally lures people into making efforts in this regard. Amongst the many different perks that celebrities get to enjoy, the one that is not just the most sought-after, but the most expensive too, is that of purchasing and owning a yacht. That’s right – although a few of us are fortunate enough to afford a nice boat or two, but shelling out money for the world’s most exclusive, and expensive yacht’s is simply out of the question for all of us. These are simply out of our reach even if we want to rent a yacht in Dubai. To be honest, not even every celebrity out there has the sort of money needed to own a yacht, and end up spending time all through the year over yachts that they rent or charter. But for those who can afford these, here’s a look into the world’s most expensive celebrity yachts:

  1. The Necker Belle – owned by Richard Branson – Cost: $18 Million

Richard Branson is already known to own a number of amazing items – inclusive of a private island and resort that is available on rent for those who can afford paying its over $50, 000 per night price tag. However, his yacht beats them all. The fact of the matter is that the yacht initially did not cost him all that money. No, he just purchased it for about $8 billion. However, he had It refurbished recently, which rose its worth to more than double of its actual price. Totally worth the price for The Necker Belle houses his submarine as well, and is believed to be the fastest, most unique in its class.

  1. Privacy – owned by Tiger Woods – Cost: $20 Million

When it comes to golf, there’s no beating Tiger Woods even with his unfortunate personal choices. If truth be told, talking about golf just cannot be complete without mentioning Tiger Woods. However, apart from golf, there’s a whole lot more to his life that is worthy of being talked about: his yacht for instance. The avid golfer named his yacht Privacy, and quite aptly so. His luxurious yacht is literally packed with some of the most upscale and high-end amenities available at the moment. Measuring around 155 feet, you will find during your yacht booking in Dubai that Privacy has the potential to accommodate more than a dozen guests at a time, and is largely considered as one of the most luxurious yachts around.

How to pick an investment company for investment passport

There are a number of nations whose passports are in great demand these days. One of these is the nation of St Kitts and Nevis. They are able to provide citizenship for people who have invested in the economy of the Island. However, there are many scams in the citizenship by investment industry. Here we will detail five things that you should look for in the organization that you are using to invest.

St Kitts second passport can be obtained either by investing in  St Kitts and Nevis Sugar Industry Diversification Foundation, which will require a non-refundable once the only donation of two hundred and fifty USD, or a direct investment of four hundred thousand USD. Now the organization that is investing for you must be selected through due diligence. The first thing to look for is their online presence and make sure that it equates with their offline, on the ground presence. If they claim that they have invested in a well-known multinational, then you should call the said company and inquire about these consultants.

The second thing to keep in mind is that you should avoid any company that has been blacklisted by reputable investors. No matter what the further outcomes are of the investigation, the very fact that they were engaged in a conflict means that there may be problems in the future as well. So you should stay away from such companies and consultancies.

The third thing to avoid is the use of any firm that is not located in a reputable and high GDP nation. There are many scams where the real address of the company is shown to be in either a low GDP nation where it is very difficult to find, or it is located in a low GDP nation in a place where there is a high amount of corruption. Therefore you should avoid such firms. Most good investment firms have offices all around the world, so they will never claim to have only one office, rather they will have multiple offices around the world and they will allow you to visit any of their offices that you may wish to visit at your leisure.

The fourth and fifth thing to keep in mind is that people will most likely review the company that they are working with. So you should always take a look at the reviews and endorsements that have been posted by other people about the firm that is going to invest to you. If the reviews are not good, it is a red flag and if there are no endorsements that are a red flag as well, and you should stay away.
