Riding the popularity wave in Bremen last week was the luxury yacht Azzam.
The 180 m long cruiser is gearing up for delivery later this year, to a very happy owner we reckon.
Stealing the spotlight from the 163.5 m long M/Y Eclipse, the Azzam is now famed for being the largest privately owned yacht in the world.
Despite its humongous size, the liner is able to cruise at an impressive 30 knots courtesy its 94,000 hp engine, and is designed to keep up speed even in shallow waters.
While Nauta yachts did an impressive job of creating artsy exteriors for the Azzam, it’s German company Lurssen’s handiwork on the interiors which will be the deciding factor on how the super yacht fairs against the luxurious insides of the Eclipse.
