Impressive! The 180 Meter yacht project “Azzam” left the dry dock just 40 Kilometers away from me.

Lürssen published some pictures on their Facebook-Page with the underwater ship. There are no Screws. Just water jets. Rumor is talking about two gas turbines and two diesel engines with 94,000 hp and a top speed of 30 knots. Outstanding! I would like to see her in full action.

Another good point is the building time. Just 96 month for the longest yacht in the world? This is very fast. Congratulations to the employees of Lürssen, the design team, and the subcontractors.
