A SUPERYACHT dubbed the world’s most expensive and unique one ever is wrapped with gold, covered in platinum and sparkling with an aquarium laced wall.

If all those glistening metals aren’t enough to cover the jaw dropping £3billion cost there are also genuine T-rex bone shavings in the main bedrooms.

The yacht, named History Supreme, has long been known as the “king of bling of the high seas” as no other luxury liner has ever got close to beating its mammoth price tag.

Most of the price comes from the fact it is covered in 100,000kg of gold, platinum and dazzling jewels.

The railings, decking, dining area and even the base of the boat is all wrapped in gold and even the anchor was specially made to be dipped in gold.

The dinosaur bone used came from Arizona in the US where it usually costs around £68,000 for a small chunk of the ancient beasts thigh bone but was used to add some very expensive flair to the major project.

Yachts are usually seen as a purchase only the very wealthy can ever dream of but even the History Supreme is way out of most billionaires price range.

The second most expensive super yacht goes to the extremely rich Russian Roman Abramovich.

His boat the Eclipse is valued at $1.5 billion, making it only a third of the value of the History Supreme.

UK designer Stuart Hughes is the brilliant mind behind the one-of-a-kind project that took him just over three years to complete despite its complex features.

The man is known for his work on other luxury items such as iPhones that he wraps in pricey metals.

Standing at 100ft long the mega yacht left no expenses spared and was made with the intention of being the greatest thing to ever set sail.

A spacious deck, dinning area and living room all glow in the yacht but it’s the massive master bedroom that really shines.

The main bedroom is made with platinum accents with an entire wall made out of aquarium stones from a meteor and those iconic shaved dinosaur bones.

Stuart was given a complete blank slate to work from when he was first approached to design a superyacht to beat all other superyachts.

He was given free reign and told to do whatever he wanted to it as long as it looks expensive.

At the time, the History Supreme cost a staggering £3billion to finally finish.

The luxuries didn’t stop when the design elements was finished as the place still needed to be furnished and filled with more pricey goods.

A luxury bottle of alcohol plated with 18.5 carat diamonds – some of the rarest on earth – and an diamond wrapped iPhone were added as extra perks.

The phone was wrapped in 500 cut diamonds with two interchangeable beautiful diamonds fitted over the “home button”, a 7.4 carat pink diamond and a rare eight carat diamond.

The yacht sold for £2.53billion back in 2011 when it was sold to an anonymous Malaysian businessman who never formally introduced himself to Stuart during the landmark sale.

Over the last 12 years, there hasn’t been a single photo taken of the boat making it a mystery of where it is and what state it’s currently in.

Many have been left intrigued by the yacht with some even claiming it’s just a made up story due to the lack of photos ever taken of it.

Only four pictures exist and the diamond encrusted rooms and gold plating can only really be seen from a distance.

The other controversy stems from how the ship would even work.

A yacht that has to handle an extra 100,000kg of weight isn’t likely to stay afloat the second it touches the water as it’ll simply be too heavy.

Boat fanatics do still have hope that one day the mystical yacht will pop up again and the expensive beauty can be admired and pictured a little bit more.

Tyrant Vladimir Putin has an extravagant collection of lavish yachts but even his entire collection is just over £1billion with the most expensive £750million.

A 270ft vessel named the Basrah Breeze is arguably the only yacht that comes anywhere near to the History Supreme in terms of its precious metals as it was completely gold encrusted.

The boat – used by Sadam Hussein – is kitted out with every amenity an Iraqi tyrant would need – including swimming pools, a mosque and a missile launcher.
