YACHT OF THE WEEK: The $300 Million ‘Nirvana’ Is A Billionaire’s Dream

Nirvana Yacht From The Side

This is Nirvana.

Designed by Sam Sorgiovanni and built by Oceano, the ultra-luxurious megayacht made its debut in 2012, and at 290 feet long it’s the 39th-largest yacht in the world. It can go up to 22 miles per hour (about 19.5 knots maximum speed).

The “spectacular trans-Pacific cruiser” has also just won Boat International Media’s prestigious award for Best Exterior Design & Styling. Among its insane amenities are a reptile room, on-board spa and fitness centre, interior elevator, and helicopter pad.

The asking price is a cool 230 million euros (about $305,348,000).
