Azzam - the largest private yacht in the world




Azzam is a private yacht built by Lürssen Yachts. Azzam was launched on 5 April 2013 at 180 m (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 (14'1").

Engineer Mubarak Saad al Ahbabi directed the construction of Azzam, with technical engineering by Lürssen including design by Nauta Yachts and interior design by Christophe Leoni. Following a year of engineering, the yacht was built in three years, which is a record building time according to Superyacht Times. Azzam possesses the ability to travel at high speed in warm and shallow waters while providing luxurious and sophisticated accommodations. Azzam is longer than a British Type 45 destroyer. She managed a top speed in sea trials of 31.5 knots.

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. in WIKIPEDIA
