One of the most expensive yachts in the world has been sitting in the Biscayne Bay since last week.

MIAMI -

Sparkling in Biscayne Bay, built one Stoli at a time, is a $330 million dream named Serene.

The 436-foot super yacht is one of the most expensive boats in the world.
Serene belongs to Russian vodka magnate Yuri Scheffler, who distributes Stolichnaya Vodka.

It's docked in the shadows of American Airlines arena, which has drawn many people out to the water's edge to snap a photo and marvel at the ship's size.

The pictures are free, but for the average person, there isn't much financial peace in getting aboard the Serene.

According to YachtCharterFleet.com, a company that offers charter services for the Serene, one week of chartering will cost more than $5 million. The site said that will fetch someone 48,000 square feet, enough space for 24 guests who will be waited on hand and foot by a crew of 52 people.

Among the many amenities the multimillion-dollar boat boasts are 18 state rooms, seven decks, including indoor and outdoor pools, an underwater viewing area, a rock-climbing wall, two helicopter landing pads and a submarine hangar.

The Serene was last docked in New York, according to tracking site Marine Traffic. Sheffler was reportedly on board. It's unclear who is on the ship in Miami.
