Superyachts are floating mansions, giving owners the ability to instantly pull up anchor and motor off to any far-flung destination. In fact, according to The New York Times, the recent tax cuts have fueled demand for superyachts with a pickup in buying from the United States. Notably, this is despite recent softness in top-end sales of art, cars and real estate, amid broader fears of an economic slowdown.
