Steven Spielberg puts $185 million yacht up for sale

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg is selling The Seven Seas, a megayacht he bought for $185 million.

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg is selling The Seven Seas, a megayacht he bought for $185 million, because the 282-footer is just not enough boat for him.

"Steven didn’t realize how much he’d enjoy cruising the ocean. Now he’d like to spend more time exploring the seas and bring a few friends along for the ride. So he’s upgrading to a bigger yacht," a friend of the director's told Britain’s Daily Mail.

Built by Dutch shipbuilding company Oceanco, The Seven Seas has amenities that include an infinity pool, a 15-foot glass movie screen, a helicopter pad, a gym, a spa and a massage room.

Spielberg is chartering out the yacht for $1.2 million a month. His new yacht will be 300 feet and cost about $250 million to build.
