Aussie Home Loans founder John Symonds is selling Hansa, his super megayacht, with hopes to build a new one in the future.

He's asking around $160 million, which would be $60 million more than Australia's most expensive home, for the 73 metre vessel which was only delivered in 2017.

It has been reported on The Australian's Margin Call that there is heat in the market at the moment.

Symond's son Stephen has been recently using the boat, sailing from New York City out to The Hamptons.

Hansa won award at last years World Superyacht Awards for her exterior lines, large jacuzzi and high-quality finish.

It was built by Dutch shipyard Royal van Lent.

The boat was a big reason as to why Aussie John was listening to offers for his Point Piper mega mansion, given plans he and wife Amber McDonald had to travel Europe on the water.

The listing, referred to as a 'her' in its marketing, is one of the most expensive this year.

It features its own beach club, an eight metre infinity swimming pool, its own gym, hair salon, lift and 10 seat cinema on the main deck.

There's a lower deck wellness centre with a massage room.

An elevator serves the lower, main and bridge decks. 

There are six cabins that sleep 12, with a catering crew of 21.

The owners suite, on the main deck, has his and hers bathrooms, separate dressing rooms, a lounge and a private study.

Its twin MTU diesel engine gives it a top speed of 16.6 knots, around 30 kilometres an hour.

The boat isn't the most expensive however on the market.

That gong goes to Secret, a 2013 built, 82.5 metre yacht built by German boat builders by Abeking & Rasmussen. It is currently on the market for nearly $200 million.

The opulence almost overtakes Symonds.

The interiors are designed by Jim Harris, with the exterior by the acclaimed yacht designer Sam Sorgiovanni.

The boat is owned by American businesswoman Nancy Walton Laurie an American heir to the Walmart fortune.

Walton Laurie has an estimated fortune of US$6.6 billion (AU$9.7 billion).

Harris was also responsible for the interior of Walton’s previous Feadship yacht.

Is is believed Walton bought the superyacht Jubilee.

Walton's sister Ann Kroenke, fellow heir to the Walmart fortune, owns the yacht Aquila.

None of the above mentioned boats come close to being the most expensive yacht ever, which is in the billions.

The History Supreme is worth $4.8 billion, given it is made from solid gold.

Some 10,000 kilograms of solid gold was used by renowned luxury yacht designer Stuart Hughes from the UK. The build of the fairly modest 30 metre yacht took three years.

It reportedly belongs to Malaysia's richest man Robert Knok.

The master bedroom has wall feature made from meteorite rock and a statue made from genuine Tyrannosaurus Rex bones.

It also features a 68 kg 24-carat gold Aquavista Panoramic Wall Aquarium and a liquor bottle featuring a rare 18.5 carat diamond. 

Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, owner of English Premier League football club Chelsea, owns the $1.5 billion Eclipse, the second most expensive boat in the world.

He's regularly on the gigantic 170 metre yacht built by Blohm and Voss of Germany and designed by Terence Disdale. 

It has a mini submarine capable of submerging up to 50 metres underwater.

Abramovich is rarely photographed on the boat, namely due to the fact there's an anti-paparazzi shield which consists of lasers sweeping the surrounding areas.

Australian billionaire Brett Blundy recently offloaded his 74 metre Italian superyacht Cloud 9, according to Margin Call.
