Superyachts are unsurprisingly expensive - super expensive. If one can't afford the 10s or even 100s of millions of dollars it costs to buy one, one can also rent one (below are listings by Burgess Yachts). Not all superyachts are owned by the super-rich, some are owned by companies and rented out with all their crew - there are plenty of things to know about traveling the world by superyacht. If one can afford the expense, superyachts are one of the most incredible ways to travel the world.
