Most Expensive Hobbies

The world’s most high-priced hobby is Yacht racing. In movies and music videos, speedboats are usually showcased as the utmost expression of richness. Amounting between $30,000 up to $50,000 for standard speedboats is somewhat pricey. Still, their price is eclipsed and restricted by yachts. There are some extremely large luxurious yachts called mega-yachts that cost around $0.8million. It’s because of its whopping price that makes these ultra-rich people urge to buy. In 2010, a businessman named Rowan Abramovich (Russian billionaire) caught the eyes when he bought the mega-yacht Eclipse which was estimated to be $1.5billion.

Nevertheless, these pricey yachts were never used for racing. The J-Class is needed and it is not that expensive like the mega-yachts. It costs between $10 million up to $20 million which is still not cheap. Purchasing one is just a small part of the expenses when it comes to yacht racing. Buying this is not simple, there are only nine all over the world and maintenance of this J-Class yacht can cost around $3 million. Preparing for the race costs around $8 million. This small part is showing you that this hobby is only for dollar billionaires.
