The rich and famous certainly have a different lifestyle from us regular folks, but we love to see how extravagantly they live. Once they make it to a certain status, owning a yacht is like second-nature, or a rite of passage.
Some of the glamorous amenities onboard those yachts are unheard of, but having all that money can buy pretty much whatever their heart desires.
A love for the sea is what all those celebrities have in common, plus a need to escape constant snapshots from paparazzis. On their own private yachts, they get to relax and be themselves, also spending some quality time with their friends and family.
Have you ever dreamt about sailing on a luxury yacht? Most likely, we all did at some point. And since we like to delve a little deeper into our favorite celebrities’ lives, we thought a good way is by making a list of the luxurious yachts they own.
Without further ado, here are the 25 most incredible celebrity yachts in the world.

If you know how the hip hop star runs, it’s no surprise he took things up a notch aboard his own yacht.
23. Axioma – Kendall Jenner’s Yacht
One of the world’s highest paying models is one of the most famous women in the world. Part of the Kardashian family, she rents out the Axioma regularly. Not the actual owner per se, it costs her about half a million dollars a week. She spent her 19th birthday onboard this yacht while vacationing in Monaco. The boat has a few jacuzzis, a steam room, a gym, a cinema, along with many other amenities.

17. Rising Sun – Leonardo DiCaprio’s Yacht
DiCaprio is one of the highest paid actors in the history of Hollywood, which makes him also one of the most famous.
