Other than expensive jets owned by the elites and celebrities, sea travel has always been an avenue to show off wealth and luxury. From travel cruises that cross oceans, to private yachts for exclusive parties and social gatherings, we’ve witnessed how crossing across oceans in luxury attracts the world’s most elite travellers.
1. The Black Swan
The Black Swan is called as such for its black exterior and graceful aesthetic, showcasing a striking proof of simplicity.
Considered the world's most elegant superyacht, the Black Swan includes a swimming pool that funnels toward the stern and seems to disappear into the ocean. It also includes a sundeck and balconies that are hidden from view, and a rooftop helipad.
Still in its initial design stage, this superyacht will be able to accommodate up to 12 guests across a master suite and six guest suites.
2. The Aqua
Is luxury sea travel possible without the unsolicited environmental guilt to it? That’s the promise of Bill Gates’ hydrogen-powered superyacht inspired by Sinot’s Aqua.
This roughly $644 million-worth 370-foot boat includes five decks, space for 14n gusts and 31 crew members, and even a gym.
Aqua, Gates' latest investment in eco-friendly tech, isn't expected to reach the sea until 2024, but it's already getting a lot of media mileage.

5. Yacht Lauren L 295
Yacht Lauren L 295 can accommodate up to 300 guests across four decks, and her accommodation provides for up to 36 guests in 20 beautifully-appointed cabins.
The lower deck can be used as a sunbathing area as well as a place to board and disembark from the tenders. Staircases lead up to the shaded main deck aft, where there is a broad stern seating area for guests to spend time outdoors with the views,while waiting for transport.
Guests looking for a sheltered outdoor living area will find that the upper deck provides two grand alfresco dining tables on the port side and centre, while the starboard side offers a comfortable lounge overlooking the glass balustrades. The bridge deck aft stores the tenders and larger motorized water toys, which are easily launched and retrieved with the use of a Davit crane. The foredeck is left clear for access to the helipad on the bow, and when not in use the area can be used for observation and hosting events.
On the sundeck, the aft section contains plenty of plush sundeck seating for a large alfresco meal, and there is also a massive Jacuzzi where guests can soak together while enjoying a cocktail from the nearby wet bar. The sundeck forward is fitted with numerous sun loungers for guests to unwind together and take in the forward views.
