WORLD'S LARGEST YACHTS


Check out the top 5 largest luxury yachts in the world.


1. Azzam
At an astounding 590 feet 7 inches, Azzam overtook Eclipse as the world's largest superyacht in April of 2013. With a total horsepower of 94,000, Azzam reportedly hit over 31 knots on her sea trials in the North Sea. The main salon alone is 95 feet long by 59 feet wide, with an open layout and no pillars. Azzam was built by Lürssen Yachts for an estimated 600 million dollars. The owner is believed to be Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President of the United Arab Emirates.


2. Eclipse
Blohm + Voss build Eclipse held the title of world's largest luxury yacht from her launch in 2010 until April of 2013. She is 536 feet in length and has a top speed of 22 knots.


3. Dubai
Dubai comes in at number three with a length overall of 531 feet 6 inches. Dubai, which has also gone by the names Platinum, Panhandle and Golden Star, got off to a slow start. Originally commissioned in 1996, the yacht was started by a partnership between Blohm + Voss and Lürssen but production was stalled for a number of years. She was finished in 2006 by Platinum Yachts after being bought by the government of Dubai, hence the new name. Among her many water toys, Dubai reportedly carries her own submarine.


4. Al Said
In case you didn't notice, she has a helipad. And what you can't see? Accommodations for 65 guests (plus a reported crew of 150), a movie theater and a concert hall for when your favorite orchestra swings by for a visit. Number 4 on the list of world's largest luxury yachts is Al Saïd, yet another build by Lürssen. Al Saïd measures 508 feet 6 inches and was launched in 2008.


5. Topaz
Lürssen sure keeps busy building superyachts. Just 10 inches longer than Prince Abdulaziz, Topaz comes in at number 5 with a length overall of 483 feet 2 inches.
