IT'S the stuff of dreams, a floating palace worth millions of dollars.

The biggest yacht ever to clear customs in Bundaberg spent the weekend tied up at the Bundaberg Port Marina.

Marina manager Geoff Beyer said the yacht, called Platinum, was 38m long.

He said he did not know who the owner was, but the yacht had a crew of eight.

"It probably cost tens of millions of dollars," Mr Beyer said.

Mr Beyer said the yacht was on its way to the Whitsundays and then on to Cairns and Papua New Guinea.

"They've just done a trip to the islands, Vanuatu and New Caledonia," he said.

According to its website, Platinum is a luxury superyacht now available for charter in the Whitsundays.

It can accommodate up to 10 guests in five staterooms.

The yacht features a spa on the deck and a sky lounge.

To charter the yacht for one day would set someone back $15,000.

Seven days would be a bit cheaper at $69,990.
