The mind-boggling price tag is too good to be true.Which Malaysian has RM15 billion net worth let alone buy a RM15 billion yacht?
Even Robert Kwok, the richest man in Malaysia is only worth US$12.5 billion, which at today's exchange rate would be roughly RM37 billion.Being a very prudent businessman would he spend half his fortune on a yacht, a fast depreciating asset?
Below, the 10 richest men in Malaysia.
Which one of the above is mad enough to blow RM15 billion on a yacht?
Whatever you read on "Forbes Riches Of Malaysia" or the world are mostly paper worth, in another word they are "unrealised wealth".These wealth are based on what is known publicly such as stocks,bonds and other tangible assets minus his debts.That would be his net worth.
A man could be richer than what is known publicly if his private holdings are kept secret.
A good example is Daim Zainuddin, whom most people know is very very rich but no one can evaluate his wealth.His private holdings are not opened to the public.
The most expensive ocean liner is the Royal Caribbean’s "Oasis Of The Seas" which only cost US1.24 billion and is 1,180 feet long, and carry 6360 passengers. It’s the most expensive ship in history, and it’s longer, wider and taller than the largest ocean liner ever built, (Cunard’s QM II), 43 per cent larger in size than the world’s largest cruise ship, (Freedom of the Seas) and remarkably, bigger than any military ship ever built, aircraft carriers included.

One hull of a price tag: Luxury yacht that would make even Roman Abramovich jealous sells for £3bn
Talk about splashing out – an anonymous Malaysian businessman has spent £3billion on a yacht made from solid gold and platinum.
The History Supreme was assembled using a staggering 100,000kg of the precious metals.
They were used throughout the boat, from the base of the vessel – which is wrapped in solid gold – to the deck, dining area, rails and anchor.

The hefty price tag is also the result of an amazingly luxurious master bedroom. It’s adorned with platinum and has a wall feature made from meteoric stone and a genuine T-Rex dinosaur bone.
It's enough to make even Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich turn a distinct shade of green.
He has a £300m yacht called Eclipse that comes complete with two swimming pools, a gym and a submarine - but it's missing the all-important platinum and gold adornments.
The History Supreme is the handiwork of Liverpool-based jeweller Stuart Hughes, who took three years to complete it.
It represents one of the 39-year-old’s more extravagant projects, and this is a man who specialises in turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.

He started his bespoke upgrade service in 2002 with his wife Katherine and has since applied his golden touch to all sorts of objects.
His Aquavista Panoramic Wall Aquarium, for instance, is made from 68kg of 24ct gold and is yours for a cool £3million.
Then there’s Mr Hughes’ iPhone 4, worth a mind-blowing £5m.
