Azzam 180m Super yacht the largest in the World

Azzam (Arab. “resolute”) is a private yacht built by Lürssen Yachts. Azzam was launched on 5 April 2013 at 180 metres (590 ft) in length as the largest private yacht in the world. She has a beam of 20.8 m (68’4″) and an unusually shallow draft of 4.3 m.

Azzam was commissioned by Khalifa Al Nahyan, the president of the United Arab Emirates. The yacht is currently listed for charter without the price. According to Motor Boat & Yacht magazine, the yacht is not available for charter, and the charter listing, similar to Roman Abramovich’s Eclipse, is aimed to avoid European taxation (charter yachts are exempt from property tax)

Among many other features, the yacht has a main salon with a length of 29 m and a beam of 18 m with an open plan and no pillars. She will travel in excess of 32 knots powered by a combination of two gas turbines and two diesel engines with a total power output of 70 MW (94,000 hp) through four pump-jets,two of which are non-movable round water outlets in the middle of the stern, and two with thrust vectoring capabilities using moveable duct water outlets positioned on either side of the non-movable ones. The yacht was delivered on 9 September 2013.

At an estimated cost of US$605M, she is more expensive than the second largest motor yacht Eclipse.

The actual gross tonnage of the mighty 180m giga yacht AZZAM has been unveiled, indicating that the world’s largest superyacht – in terms of length – is not the largest superyacht in the world in terms of tonnage. Mega yacht AZZAM’s actual gross tonnage is 13,136 tons, meaning she places second, following the 155m superyacht AL SAID, with 15,850 tons.The 2013 AZZAM yacht boasts stylish and elegant exteriors by Nauta Yachts and interiors by Christophe Leoni.
