This guy went from working on a yacht to owning the AK Royalty superyacht.

What’s more, he did it in a relatively short amount of time.

The man achieved his success by exploiting a gap he’d seen in the market.

Aaron Fidler spent a lot of time on yachts, working all kinds of jobs, including some engineering jobs.

After spending so much time on board, he realized that there was a gap in the market when it came to top-notch furniture on yachts, especially when it comes to furniture that incorporates technology.

He started Furrion, a company that makes cooktops, entertainment systems, speakers, TVs, and power cables, specifically designed for RVs and yachts.

It took off big time, and it has made him a millionaire.

By 2021, the company was making $200+ million every year in sales.

After leaving Furrion, Fidler started a new company, this time entirely devoted to luxury, and he owns a 136-foot yacht named AK Royalty, and a matching Lamborghini SVJ Roadster.

The boat is finished using a special type of paint, which uses actual 24-karat gold mixed into the color.

In a way, it almost reminds us of the BMW glass yacht, not in terms of the shape, but because of the unique colorway.

The same gold paint is used for the Lambo, for also for the jet skis parked in the garage of the yacht.

Aside from the garage, the yacht also has a beach club with a pool and a waterslide, a DJ booth, and a foredeck cinema.

The AK Royalty superyacht is actually available to charter, at a cool €164,000 ($178,000) per week.

Not as expensive as other superyachts, such as the Black Pearl for example, but still a good chunk of change.
