Talk about splashing out – an anonymous Malaysian businessman has spent £3billion on a yacht made from solid gold and platinum.

The History Supreme was assembled using a staggering 100,000kg of the precious metals.

They were used throughout the boat, from the base of the vessel – which is wrapped in solid gold – to the deck, dining area, rails and anchor.


Expensive: If you want one of these Stuart Hughes luxury yachts, you can wave goodbye to £3billion

The hefty price tag is also the result of an amazingly luxurious master bedroom. It’s adorned with platinum and has a wall feature made from meteoric stone and a genuine T-Rex dinosaur bone.

It's enough to make even Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich turn a distinct shade of green.

He has a £300m yacht called Eclipse that comes complete with two swimming pools, a gym and a submarine - but it's missing the all-important platinum and gold adornments.

The History Supreme is the handiwork of Liverpool-based jeweller Stuart Hughes, who took three years to complete it.

It represents one of the 39-year-old’s more extravagant projects, and this is a man who specialises in turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.


Luxury: The History Supreme's bedroom is covered in platinum and the odd prehistoric artefact

He started his bespoke upgrade service in 2002 with his wife Katherine and has since applied his golden touch to all sorts of objects.

His Aquavista Panoramic Wall Aquarium, for instance, is made from 68kg of 24ct gold and is yours for a cool £3million.

Then there’s Mr Hughes’ iPhone 4, worth a mind-blowing £5m.


Gold standard: The boat is covered in precious metals - even the anchor has been given a special makeover

The Apple device is wrapped in 500 cut diamonds, including two interchangeable diamonds which fit over the 'home' button - a single cut 7.4 carat pink diamond and a rare 8 carat single cut flawless diamond that are together worth more than £4m.

An even bigger diamond still is to be found in his luxury liquor bottle. The D' Amalfi Limoncello Supreme is home to an 18.5 carat diamond, one of the world’s rarest. It’s no wonder that you’ll need to spend £27million before you can take a swig from it.

Other items adorned with precious metals and diamonds that he’s produced include laptops, beds, cars and even a suit.


Hungry for extravagance: The yacht naturally features an exquisitely designed dining area

Any broad that steps one foot on that boat would have to basically let him have his way or face dire consequences.
You don't deny a man who uses T-Rex bone like glitter.

He pretty much had no choice; only the uncouth dare venture out upon the open sea without a dinosaur bone close by.
