With a reported price tag of nearly $1.2 billion, the Eclipse is not only the largest yacht, but also the most expensive. The Eclipse was delivered in 2010 to Russian business tycoon Roman Abramovich, who is known worldwide for his opulent spending on everything from super yachts to England's Chelsea Football Club.
The Eclipse has two helicopter pads, 11 guest cabins, two swimming pools, exterior fireplace and a dance hall. The vessel is also equipped with intruder detection systems and a German-built missile defense system, and bullet-proof glass and armor plating in the master suite and bridge.
Abramovich also made news in 2009 when he had an "anti-paparazzi" shield installed, which reportedly uses lasers to detect a camera and ruin any photographs taken by it with a flash of light.
The Eclipse also features a three-person submarine and can accommodate up to 30 guests and 75 crewmembers. Although much of the details of the ship have yet to be confirmed, estimates place the ship between 533 and 557 feet long.
