  1. Lurssen's 180m Superyacht 'Azzam'
    The World's Largest Yacht!

    On April 5th, 2013 Lürssen Yachts launched the World's Largest Yacht, the 180-meter project 'AZZAM'. An industry leader in superyacht construction, the German shipyard has launched many of the world's largest, most notable builds including the 115-meter Pelorus, the 147-meter Topaz and the 138-meter Rising Sun.​

    Under the guidance of Eng. Mubarak Saad al Ahbabi, the technical engineering was developed by Lürssen, the exterior design by Nauta Yachts and the interior design by Christophe Leoni to create what would become the most complex and challenging yacht ever been built. Ahbabi assembled and oversaw a world-class team for the project. Under his leadership, the overall requirements for general layout, size and performance and exterior style were developed. His brief was to build a large luxury yacht with an innovative and timeless design that would be able to travel at high speed in warm and shallow waters while providing luxurious and sophisticated accommodation to its guests.
  2. AZZAM breaks new grounds in terms of dimension, performance and technology. In addition to being the largest yacht in the world with a length of 180 meters and a top speed of over 30 knots, she adds another record in terms of construction time. Lürssen Managing Partner Peter Lürssen proudly said: "When she will be delivered later this year, she will have been in build for only three years following one year of engineering. She truly represents another milestone in not only our history but in yachting history as well".
  3. Nauta CEO Mario Pedol stated: "When I first saw the scale model before the general presentation to the Principal, I was 100% happy with the outcome and so was the Principal. Such recognition made me confident that we had achieved our goal". The design has strength of character and sense of purpose, yet has a timeless elegance, incorporating all the elements of visionary contemporary modern design. The interior decoration was undertaken by the renowned French designer Christophe Leoni who is proud to have been able to realize a sophisticated and luxurious interior in a turn of the century Empire style. "Though Yachting is not my main area of business, I thoroughly enjoyed the cooperation with Nauta and Lürssen and am confident that the final yacht is everything and more the owner expects." he said.
  4. Under the direction of Eng. Mubarak Saad al Ahbabi, the best solutions were found in order to satisfy the specific requirements with regards to design and technology, creating a yacht that met all expectations. The end result is a truly sophisticated Superyacht, even by Lurssen's standards.
  5. Among many other features and firsts, AZZAM has a main salon with a length of 29-meters and a beam of 18-meters with no support pillars in between, creating the largest open floor plan ever conceived on a yacht. Powered by a combination of 2 gas turbines and 2 diesel engines with a total of 94,000 horsepower, AZZAM will travel in excess of 30 knots!
  6. Based in Bremen, Germany, Lürssen is a global leader in yacht building.
