Why travel to the most exclusive, luxurious destination money can buy when you can have it all to yourself in the middle of the ocean? Only a select few, like billionaire business magnates, prime ministers and vodka distributors, can afford a mansion on water. Their mega-yachts are fit with multimillion-dollar amenities such as space for a 50-piece orchestra and 50 guest suites. The extremely exclusive elite who don’t enjoy sharing their extravagant lifestyle and want to ensure no guests disturb their personal, floating resort, opted for features such as sonic guns and water cannons.
