I have read just now about a new superyacht that is to be in the works that if built is to take the title from the 590-foot "Azzam", the current largest yacht in the world. In another six months or so they are expected to decide which European yard will build this yacht. Of course that could only be one of 2 or 3 yards. In addition to being the longest private yacht in the world at 222 meters (728.4'), the yacht will have a beam of 24.9 meters (81.69'), and a draft of 4.8 meters (15.78'). This yacht will be no slouch in the speed department either, as its top speed will be in excess of 30 knots (35 MPH). To get to that speed, she will be powered by triple gas turbine engines making over 100,000 horsepower. The yacht also has no rudders, as electric podded propulsion units (think The Queen Mary 2) will handle maneuvering. Owner And Guests Live Like Royalty - The owner's suite, at 275 square meters (2960 square feet) over two stories, will encompass nearly one full deck of space in the seven-deck yacht, and offer unparalleled views. It will feature two staterooms, and will include private access to a helipad and an elevator from an exclusive drive in dock, as well as all the luxury amenities you would come to expect. The owner's suite also offers a private gym, office and study, private dining area, butler's stateroom and more. Onboard guests will be similarly pampered in four VIP suites of 90 square meters (968 square feet) apiece, and 12 guest suites, each at over 60 square meters (645 square feet). All guests will have access to the yacht's two pools, one indoor, one outdoor, multiple Jacuzzis, spa facilities, full time masseuse, hair stylist and barber, as well as all the water toys the yacht can carry. Who Would Buy A Yacht Of This Size? - "It takes a person of vision, someone with a dream to own the worlds largest yacht and to bring it to reality," claims Timm. "We work almost exclusively with UHNWI (ultra high net worth individuals) clients and specialize in mega yachts and super yachts. For several years, we have advertised the sale of a 200 meter yacht on our luxury website, 4 yacht . com and have worked with several UHNWI as well as several Middle Eastern clients toward the goal of building a yacht of this size. We had many discussions with our buyer that a yacht of 200 meters was of sufficient length, however with the launching of Azzam recently at 180 Meters, that all changed.
