Hollywood's richest man and the co-founder/founder of film studio DreamWorks and record labels Asylum Records, Geffen Records and DGC Records, David Geffen’s net worth is estimated at $8.3 billion. He is also known for sparing time for philanthropy, pledging $150 million to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art or donating to the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
In the meantime, the total net worth of the three figures above is combined to over $123 billion.
She cost $200 million to build, according to some reports. David Geffen had co-owned Rising Sun along with Oracle CEO Larry Ellison since 2004, before he bought it completely in 2010.
The vessel can accommodate 18 guests in nine cabins, with the capacity to carry a crew of up to 46. The interior by Laura Seccombe includes a gym, cinema, and wine cellar. One of the most distinctive hallmarks of the yacht, the rear cockpit deck, was designed as a basketball court.
