Measuring somewhat close to 58 meters long and about 38 meters wide, its pictures reveal that it is nothing short of a floating mansion on the high sea, spread over three sprawling decks.

It comes with a retractable solar glass roof and further fitted out with a vast spectrum of comforts and facilities. Besides exclusive space for a helipad, the high-tech yacht also includes personal guest suites, sauna, massage room, spa, piano lounge bar, outdoor sunbath area, and a pool that spans over 25 meters.

Vijay Mallya, the former owner of Kingfisher Airlines, has always been a pacesetter and his love for the prized materialistic luxury is evident from his high-end purchases including Kalizma (a 50-meter yacht) and the mega yacht, Indian Empress. Not to mention, he is one of the firsts in the country to kick off this trend of owning luxury yachts. Al though Indian Empress was confiscated in 2018 due to Mallya’s legal battles, this breathtaking 95-metre yacht deserves to be on this list due to its plush features and high-end amenities.

This yacht was originally made for the member of a royal Qatari family, before Mallya owned it by paying a jaw-dropping amount of over $112 million in 2006. It is so expansive and massive that it boasts of a lavish master suite and some 15 plus guest staterooms. Add to this stunning interiors enhanced by an array of glam features like helipad, gym, Jacuzzi, beauty salon, massage room, and spacious deck spaces. Given an ardent party lover, he made this yacht a venue for several prestigious celebrations including the parties during Monaco Grand Prix which was mainly graced by A-list guests.
