World’s largest yacht, Project Azzam, spied in Germany
The world’s largest at the moment, the gorgeous 536 feet Eclipse, owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich is due to be dethroned soon. There’s a new massive yacht currently under construction, reportedly named “Project Azzam” – a 590 feet long superyacht that’s going to be 54 feet longer than the Eclipse.
The details about this magnificent build are quite few – some believe it has been commissioned by some Saudi Royals, but it’s only an assumption. The project has an estimated worth of over $620 million (£400 million) and is currently undergoing assembly at the 170 meter dry dock at Lurssen’s yard, a German shipbuilder.
The vessel, as it has obviously increased in sizes during construction, is now in need of a bigger dock. It was recently moved to a 220 meter long dock. One of the interesting features that unmask its humongous size is the 1 million liter fuel reservoir. Furthermore, it is said that the Azzam will be able to host a total crew of 50 members – another characteristic that proves the magnificence of this project.
