Eric Clapton

Name: Va Bene
Value: $10 million*

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Eric Clapton owns no less than four of the world’s most expensive guitars – along with one of the world’s most elite superyachts. Dubbed Va Bene, Clapton’s impressive sea vessel was built in the early 1990s by legendary designer Richard Hein. Clapton paid an estimated $10 million to buy it in 2005.

Va Bene is outfitted with twin Caterpillar engines capable of a top speed of 18 knots. Featuring enough cabin space for 25 passengers (including 13 crew members), Clapton actually added additional upgrades including a master suite, jet skis, and kayaks.

And with an estimated net worth hovering around $250 million, Va Bene’s $10 million price tag is a relative drop in the bucket for one of music’s most revered (and profitable) icons. In fact, Clapton consistently ranks among the top dozen richest musicians who ever lived.
