This $150 million behemoth is the Rolls-Royce of superyachts

It has a helipad. For your helicopter, of course.

THE PALMER JOHNSON World is one of the most advanced superyachts ever conceived.

Co-designed by Rolls-Royce Marine and the master shipbuilders at Palmer Johnson, the 267-foot-long World will feature some of the world’s most advanced and environmentally friendly marine technology.

With the World’s “ice operating” capability, the mega-yacht will be able to operate in just about any environment, including the Arctic and Antarctica, while coddling its occupants in supreme luxury. Currently under construction in Norway, the World has room for 12 guests and a crew of 27.

The yacht’s broker, Moran Yacht & Ship, has not listed an official price, but CNN reported the price to be around the $150 million mark a couple of years ago.

To protect its well-heeled owners, the yacht is equipped with a thermal imaging system to spot pirates and a pair of water cannons to deter them. The World can even be equipped with an LRAD or Long Range Acoustic Device that can be used as a sonic weapon.


The yacht’s aft deck includes a swimming pool with waterfall features and access to the ship’s helipad. Because you would have a helicopter, of course.
