Impressive! The 180-meter yacht project "Azzam" left the dry dock just 40 Kilometers away from me.
Note: Azzam is the longest but Dilbar is the biggest (by volume)
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.
In addition to being the largest yacht in the world with a length of 180 meters and with a top speed of over 30 knots, she adds another record in terms of building time: less than three years from steel cutting following one year of engineering.
This enormous achievement was possible thanks to the guidance and leadership of Eng. Mubarak Saad al Ahbabi who is the principal designer and the man who defined the original creative idea based on his in-depth knowledge of the environment.
Azzam‘s innovative and timeless design has been developed by Mario Pedol from Nauta Yachts. The interior design was created by the renowned French designer Christophe Leoni who is excited to have been able to realize a sophisticated and luxurious interior in a turn of the century Empire style.
That private yacht is five meters longer than the cruise ship MS Deutschland
