Yacht Bible, the ultimate destination for everything related to yachting, takes readers on a look inside the grandest superyachts sailing the oceans in its impressive site. 

While the title for the globe’s largest yacht was once held by the same vessel, El Mahrousa, for over 100 years, this has changed hands far more often in the decades since then as more supersized yachts came into the picture. 

Azzam is the current title-holder, measuring a massive 180 meters. Costing about $600 million to build, Azzam, made by Lurssen with advice from engineer Mubarak Saad al Ahbabi, grew longer during the optimization process. Thanks to the power coming from MTU engines, Azzam can reach about 31 knots, which is achievable by the superyacht’s shallow draft relative to her size. 

With a room that can comfortably house up to 36 guests and about 80 crew members, Azzam is equipped with an onboard gym and a golf training space.

Second on the list is Eclipse, which was built in 2010 by Blohm and Voss. She was the biggest until April 2013, when Azzam was unveiled. Nonetheless, Eclipse, owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, still sits as one of the most impressive superyachts ever to hit the oceans. While Eclipse is known as the $1.5 billion yacht, the superyacht’s actual cost price was about $700 million. Abramovich, the owner, also owns a second superyacht, Solaris.

Securing the third spot is Platinum Yachts’ Dubai, the biggest yacht in the world by volume at the time it was built. Owned by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai, it was built with an estimated cost of $400 million. This superyacht was the largest yacht in the world from 2006 to 2009 but was later replaced by Eclipse and Azzam. 

Meanwhile, Dilbar, a superyacht built by the Lurssen shipyard, may not be the longest yacht globally, but it is definitely the biggest by interior volume, with a gross tonnage of about 16,000. Dilbar is a 156-meter-long superyacht unveiled in 2016 and was at the top of the competition when it comes to Yachts of this magnitude. 

Designed by Espen Oeino, Dilabr’s interior design was done by Andrew Winch Design. Dilbar, which was made with a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure, can house 36 individuals and a crew of 84. 

Rounding up the list is Al Said, a 155m motor yacht that was ordered to be made in 2006 by Lürssen. At the time of Al Said’s launch, it was the world’s second-biggest yacht, but since then, it has been pushed back into the fifth position. It is owned by the Sultan of Oman.
