Luxury for the super rich | DW Documentary

The largest private yacht in the world is the 180 meter-long Azzam, owned by the Emir of Abu Dhabi. Arab sheikhs, Russian oligarchs and American billionaires are battling to own the most luxurious and most expensive ship. The largest private yacht in the world cost around 600 million euros. The Azzam, which belongs to the Emir of Abu Dhabi, is a staggering 180 meters long. And it’s high maintenance - staff, diesel and servicing cost around ten million euros a year. These mega yachts are designed and furnished by top architects, like Philipp Starck. This film takes viewers onto some of the most expensive yachts in the world. Meet Norwegian ship designer Espen Oeino, who has inside knowledge of what this league of luxury really means. His clients’ requests have included a helicopter landing pad, and even a personal submarine on board. Along with destinations like Monaco, Miami and Dubai, yacht owners have recently also begun heading to more adventurous locations, like the Arctic Ocean.

    The first boat at least his is a proper sail boat and he pays his staff an annual salary, I feel better knowing its somewhat for the environment and affords others a living. His penthouse is pretty lame however people must think how tacky his decorative taste is. The other boats are just environmental vandals.

    The rich create jobs, give to charity and are generally classy people. The poor are spiteful, mentally unstable, ignorant, easily led like donkeys and have as much class and social graces as pigs in a mud pit. I'm not rich, these are just my observations.

    Meanwhile people struggle to get by, children can’t go to school, and people die from preventable diseases. A rigged and broken system we have and it’s in our faces. It’s about what we do to change it. Divert resources to where they are most needed. There is a limit and excessive wealth like this where the owners have nothing else to waste their money on is sad tbh. The rich say “lower tax and we will donate ourselves” but that’s not the case. U can’t be responsible enough to carry out our moral responsibility to help those in need so don’t complain when u get taxed.

      @Shaun Cameron people like you for some reason have it in their head that rich people will move out the country and there will be a brain drain if government taxes the rich. Please stop with that bs. It’s just not true and not the case. Stop defending these super rich people it’s senseless. However what is the case is that in countries like the US , UK etc we have right wing leaders who are giving tax cuts for their elite friends and they scaremonger people saying if we increase tax they run away. Come on that’s just not true. I’m not saying tax the rich sky high. That’s unrealistic. What I am saying is tax them so they pay their fair share. For example the UK government is going to increase corporation tax to 25% just after they were the one who said if Corbyn increase it businesses would run away. If that is the case why raise it after Covid. The same goes in the US. Biden will be increase corporation tax and let’s see if it will be a disaster like Venezuela!!!

    My first boat was bought with financial help from Ms Lyra Holt Dean. Sailing is thousands of years old and we continue this long-lasting, intriguing and at the same time dangerous tradition! Throughout history sailing has helped various civilizations to develop and prosper as people sailed accross oceans to settle in new undiscovered areas. Each time we set a sail it’s as if you could feel the same excitement, uncertainty and craving for adventure as it used to be thousands of years ago. In a way sailing is like a bridge connecting us with times long lost.
