100 Luxury Yachts

From Sea Monster Boats to Seashell Vessels

— September 18, 2011 — Autos
While the recession hit many consumers hard, you'd never know it by looking at the vast array of luxury yachts on the market. It seems that although many individuals are credit crunched, opulence and lavish design lives on for an elite group of people.

Among the vast array of vessels featured in the gallery are ships with rotating decks that give those aboard a 360 degree view of their surroundings and even ships that run on solar power or have zero emissions. After all, grandeur should not come at the cost of the environment; the wealthy have obligations to Mother Nature as well.

These luxury yachts are the epitome of ritzy design and upper class splendor that roam the seas throughout the globe. Owning one of these vessels would certainly cost a pretty penny.
