? History Supreme – the most expensive fake yacht in the world? (3.4 billion euros)

The really most expensive yacht in the world is said to belong to an anonymous Malaysian businessman. The size itself is not decisive here, however, because the “History Supreme” should only be around 30 meters long. The building material is the decisive factor here, because the mega-yacht was allegedly built in Liverpool by luxury designer “Stuart Hughes” with a total of 100,000 kilograms of gold and platinum. You read that correctly: The supposed boat designer is said to have built 100 tons of gold and platinum in the luxury yacht in a construction period of 3 years.

Sounds like a big fake? It probably is, because the world agrees that the yacht was never built and that only Malaysian businessman Robert Kuok could raise this money. However, he has not bought it and no one has seen the thing yet. Photoshop Skills> 100?
