What is the Most Expensive eBay Item in the World?


On February 08 2006 eBay closed an auction for a 50% deposit on a yacht. The deposit sold at the 'buy it now' price of $85,000,000.00, the total cost being $168,000,000.00 USD. The yacht is designed by Frank Mulder and built by 4Yacht of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The yacht, dubbed the 'Gigayacht', will feature a 3000 sq. ft. master suite, luxury office area, salon, cinema room, fitness room,10 multi-level VIP Suites with panoramic windows, eight guest cabins, helicopter garage, retractable elevator, and a 55 X 35 pool off the aft deck. The yacht was bought by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich and is expected to be delivered in 2007. This sale far eclipses the old record of the most expensive item sold on eBay when on August 16, 2001 a Gulfstream II jet was sold to an African charter airline company for $4,900,000.00 USD.
