I am a thousandaire, which is a far cry from a billionaire. Thousandair's aspire to own a ski boat or a fishing boat while the billionaire drops more money than I will ever see in my life on a massive yacht worth $300 million.

This yacht is owned by the Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko and measures 394-feet long. That length is hard to put in perspective, it's as long as a football field and a basketball court set end to end. Yeah, it's big.

Inside the yacht is lots of mirrors and gaudy appointments proving rich doesn’t mean you have taste. The ship is festooned with electronics and gadgets that are hidden and only come out when activated by a remote. The ship even has a hidden "nookie room" which is just what Tiger needed to keep himself out of trouble.
