$330 Million boat

I’m on a boat: Bill Gates vacations on $330M yacht

These days, Microsoft founder Bill Gates is more concerned with helping to save the world than creating the next big gadget. But when the world’s richest man goes on vacation, he does it like no one else.

The New York Daily News captured some photos of Gates aboard “The Serene,” a $330 million dollar yacht that Gates and his family are renting for $5 million per week.

In addition to its 12 staterooms, the 450-foot, seven deck vessel also comes equipped with its own saltwater pool, climbing wall, library, health spa, outdoor theater and even a nightclub spread out over the boat’s combined 48,000 square feet.

Re: $330 Million boat

But is it a true bluewater boat?

Re: $330 Million boat

The owners are probably Russian so now need to rent it out

Re: $330 Million boat
