An anonymous leading Malaysian businessman has spent £3 billion (USD4.25 billion) on a yacht made from solid gold and platinum. Named 'History Supreme', The 100-foot bespoke yacht was designed by Liverpool-based jeweller Stuart Hughes, who took three years to complete the vessel.
"The businessman just approached us and asked us whether we could do it. He wanted a plane done as well, but the thing would never take off if we did," Hughes said.
"So he said, 'Can you do the yacht?' and I said, 'We'll give it a crack.' Then it was pretty much a case of can you make this gold, can you make that gold?"
"We just did what we were told and are delighted with the result."
A circa of 100 tonnes of solid gold and platinum were used to build the History Supreme, from the gold-wrapped base to the deck, dining area and anchor.
