World’s most expensive pool table allows superyacht owners to play at sea

Bugatti has released the world’s most expensive pool table which will allow superyacht owners to play while at sea.

The £217,000 ‘self-levelling’ table uses sophisticated computer technology to ensure the playing surface remains stable even on choppy seas.

According to the Daily Mail, Sheik Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Emir of Abu Dhabi, is thought to have expressed an interest in buying one for his £400million 590ft (180 metre) yacht Azzam — the world’s largest yacht.

The table is made with carbon fibre that can be optionally upgraded with gyroscopic self-levelling technology to prevent the balls from rolling, even on the high seas.

It was created through a partnership with carbon fibre expert IXO.

The self-levelling technology relies on a gyroscopic sensor to keep the table steady. Each leg can move individually to compensate for the movement of a ship. The system makes silent, vibration-free adjustments in five milliseconds.

Bugatti will begin delivering its pool table in June 2021. Production is limited to 30 units, and pricing starts at 250,000 euros including all accessories, a sum that represents around $300,000 at the current conversion rate.

The French firm will only make 30 limited edition models, which are expected to sell out within days of their release in the coming weeks.

    Very pleased to read that some people have the right priorities. Interrupting a game of snooker just because the boat leaves harbour is really too much.

    I second that motion. Thank God we live in the future.
