    $300 Million Superyacht Spotted Off California Coast

    Did you know? $300 million! On Wednesday night, Los Angeles CBS affiliate KCAL's Sky9 helicopter spotted something unusual near Venice. And by "something unsual," I mean "the ninth-largest yacht in the world."

    Her name is Serene. She's 440 feet long and boasts seven decks, 50,000 square feet of interior space, two helicopter pads, 12 staterooms, a massive saltwater pool and storage for a submarine, among other things.

    Nobody knows why the mega yacht, which cost an estimated $300 million to construct and is reportedly owned by Russian vodka tycoon Yuri Scheffler, is docked near Los Angeles.

    Being poor: still sucks.
