Top 10 Things Money Can Buy When You’re Rich and Famous

They say money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy A LOT of other awesome things! Here are a few of the things that your money can purchase that will go a long way toward helping you be happy:

1. Private Yacht

You may have to drop $300 million on this bad boy, but there’s nothing quite like a 390-foot private yacht. Motor Yacht A is owned by Andrey Melnichenko, a 42-year-old Russian billionaire and industrialist. Talk about sailing in comfort!

2. Mansion

Whether you want to live in Beverly Hills, Malibu, Miami Beach, or Aruba, a mansion is one of the best ways to say, "Look at all this money I have!" With private beach access, a helipad, dozens of rooms, and even your own indoor pool, bowling alley, and ballroom, it doesn’t get better than this! 

3. Helicopter

Say goodbye to all that pesky traffic! The cost of a private helicopter hovers (yes, pun intended) in the $120,000 to $300,000 price range, but boy, is it worth it to never have to wait in line ever again!

4. Amphibian Quadski

Imagine being able to drive the same vehicle on both land and water! You’d never have to worry about off-roading again. The Amphibian Quadski is a vehicle designed for both sea and shore, and it can zip around at up to 45 miles per hour. At $42,000, it’s a total steal.

5. Fancy Car

Imagine being able to own your own Ferrari, Bugatti, Lamborghini or Maserati - a dream come true for most of us, right? Or, you can go old school and drop a few million on a classic car - like the $10.9 million 1961 Ferrari 250 GT Spyder California SWB once owned by James Coburn.

6. Luxury Bathroom

Tired of the same old shower day in, day out? Why not install your own private bathroom waterfall? Or, place the bathroom outdoors in your own private tropical garden? Set a hot tub in the center of the bathroom floor, or build the bathroom in the top floor of your own personal skyscraper.

7. Fancy Food

Would you ever pay $200 for a hamburger? If it was made with white truffles, Wagyu beef, a saffron-dusted bun, pata negra ham slices, balsamic vinegar that has been aged for 8 years, lamb’s lettuce, Cristal champagne onion straws, and pink Himalayan rock salt, you would! 

8. Penthouse Suite

The top floor of any skyscraper could be your new home! A penthouse at The Arch, a Hong Kong skyscraper, is estimated to cost roughly $28.8 million. It has its own private swimming pool, offers a stunning view of the Victoria Harbor below, and is the single most expensive apartment (cost per square foot) in the world. 

9. Painting/Sculpture

If you think you’re the kind of person who can afford the finer things in life, why not drop a few million dollars on a piece of art? The 1919 painting Le Bassin Aux Nymphéas by Claude Monet cost one lucky collector a stunning $80.4 million. Definitely not an impulse buy! 

10. Jewelry

You may not be able to purchase the famous Pink Panther diamond, but there are many other diamonds and items of jewelry for sale. For example, a 72.22 carat diamond was auctioned off in Hong Kong, selling for $10.26 million!
