Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta Platforms and renowned billionaire, has reportedly treated himself to a lavish gift: a $300 million super yacht named "Launchpad." The impressive vessel, measuring 287 feet, recently made its debut in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, after completing its inaugural sailing.

Constructed by the prestigious Dutch yacht builder Feadship, Launchpad boasts a sleek dark blue hull and multiple decks for luxurious amenities. With a gross tonnage of approximately 5,000, it can reach speeds of up to 24 knots, offering an indulgent cruising experience.

Only a select few motor yachts exceeding 100 meters are currently in existence, with Launchpad joining the ranks of exclusive maritime luxury.

While some belong to fellow billionaires, Mark Zuckerberg's acquisition of Launchpad reportedly came with a hefty nine-figure price tag, according to The Sun.

Zuckerberg's personal fortune, valued at around $178 billion as per Forbes, underscores his success as the co-founder of Facebook, which later evolved into Meta Platforms.
