What Does A Billionaire's Bucket List Look Like?

Monaco

The rich have bucket lists, too, but instead of a simple sky dive or running a marathon, the financially well-endowed have their sights set on things that are much bigger and much more exotic-- and there’s no need to wait until death is nigh.

There’s a bucket list just for this year, and it’s full of upcoming things, newly available for 2018 that the rich are anxiously awaiting to get their hands on or jump into.

Here’s our Top 10 list of 2018 bucket breakers for the well-do-do:

#1 Around the World in 22 Days

We’ll start with a the most expensive item on the bucket list: An around-the-world trip that hits nine countries by private jet, spending your nights in luxury Aman hotels in each destination. The entire trip takes 22 days and costs $120,000 per person and is run by Aman and Remote Lands luxury travel designer.

Passengers travel on an Airbus with the capcity to fit 126 people but will carry only 18 because it’s been fitted with private rooms and bathrooms. The first trip started on April 15 this year, taking off from Tokyo, and visiting Italy, Greece, Montenegro, Bhutan, Vietnam, India, Thailand and China.

#2 A Ride on the Crystal Sky Private Jet

How about hiring out an entire Boeing 777 that’s been swanked up for the super-rich by Crystal Cruises? They just started taking reservations for private flights that cost $57,000 an hour, but the blankets are cashmere, and there’s fine dining, of course, because this is a journey of “bespoke luxury to exotic worldwide destinations”.

#3 Roughing It, With Money

Perhaps the Crystal Sky private jet can get the wealthy to the first destination on the 2018 bucket list: The Shinta Mani Wild ‘glamping’ resort in Cambodia, which opens its doors this summer and promises to be billionaire-friendly. It’s tucked away in a rainforest and is billed as a high-end eco retreat.

It opens in October 2018, and no one knows how much it costs yet.

#4 The North Pole on Steroids

For the budget billionaire, there’s the $30,000 voyage to the North Pole in June. The trip lasts 14 days and includes a hot air balloon flight and helicopter sightseeing. Related: Markets Bounce Back As Geopolitical Fears Subside

The adventure is offering by Quark Expeditions, and most of it takes place on the world’s most powerful nuclear icebreaker, the 50 Years of Victory.

#5 Yachts Are So 1990s

Personal submarines are the ultimate play toy for billionaire boys, and nothing beats the 3-person $4-million Aston Martin-Triton Submarines’ Project Neptune, coming soon.

#6 The Most Coveted SuperYacht

So, if submarines are in and yachts are dated, the superyacht can still cut it—and this one should, priced at $16 million (for starters). This one is a collaboration between Porsche and Dynamiq, a Monaco-based yacht-builder. And they’re only producing seven of them, so this is a competition for exclusivity.

#7 No Summer Without a Convertible…

Meet the top contender for any convertible on the millionaire-billionaire bucket list: The Aventador S, roadster version, by Lamborghini. It’s only $450,000—for those who can’t afford a submarine or superyacht.

#8 When a Convertible Isn’t Enough

But a convertible won’t do you any good on adventurous, rough terrain and billionaires aren’t likely to spend their entire summer on the flat top. The ‘practical’ addition to the collection would be Lamborghini’s new luxury SUV, the Urus, which started production in February and will start at $22,000.

#9 The Ultimate Supercar, for Downtime

The bucket list collection is concluded with the ultimate supercar, Bugatti's 2018 Chiron—by far the expensive (and fastest) car on the market. But it’s to speed of 288 mph comes at a price tag of almost $3 million.

#10 Cold Picnic

Sometimes the simple things in life are the best, though. That’s when the ultra-wealthy might just choose to go on a picnic. What better way than a $7,300 helicopter lift to a week-long glacier picnic offered by Ski Verbier?
