2. Eclipse

Industry Leaders - - Big Ticket -

It seems like Rus­sians have a knack for ex­pen­sive yachts. An­other Rus­sian bil­lion­aire owns the Eclipse which is worth $1.5 bil­lion. Blohm and Voss of Ham­burg have built this 536 feet long yacht. Due to its huge size, the lux­ury yacht can eas­ily ac­com­mo­date two swim­ming pools, two he­li­copter pads, sev­eral hot tubs, 24 guest cab­ins, three launch boats, a disco hall, and a mini-sub­ma­rine which is ca­pa­ble of sub­merg­ing up to 50 me­ters un­der the sur­face of wa­ter. Apart from the lux­u­ries, Eclipse has up­dated se­cu­rity sys­tems as well. The lux­ury liner is equipped with var­i­ous in­truder de­tec­tion sys­tems and a mis­sile de­fense sys­tem. The mas­ter bed­room and the bridge on the yacht are made up of bul­let­proof win­dows and fit­ted ar­mor plat­ing. One of the most as­ton­ish­ing fea­tures is that it has anti-pap­pa­razzi shield which sweeps lasers in the sur­round­ing ar­eas. A light di­rectly shines on the cam­era so that the pho­tog­ra­pher is un­able to capture any­thing.
