As we all know, the world of luxury knows no bounds. Often, looking at the most luxurious yachts leaves us wondering or shaking our heads. First of all, we would like to define what kind of yachts we are talking about. A mega yacht or superyacht is a particularly large, ocean-going yacht with a luxurious interior.
Since these ships are exclusively and luxuriously equipped and thus correspondingly expensive, they serve “super-rich” for representation and pleasure purposes. As a basis for calculation, the rule of thumb is “at least 1 million US dollars per metre”.
With this in mind, enjoy the TOP 10 of the most extraordinary yachts in the world.
Built in 1990 for a Saudi Arabian businessman, this 105-metre yacht offers everything the luxurious heart desires.
The lettering of the yacht is made of 24-carat gold, onboard is a 20-metre dining table, a helicopter and a pool. The included private beach with palm trees, sand and sun loungers is another highlight of this gem.
In 2008, the 133-metre yacht was built in Germany by Peters Werft for the former Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Qatar, Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani. Al Mirqab is one of the 20 largest yachts ever built in the world. With 24 cabins with their own bathrooms and living rooms and an additional 2 VIP rooms for the owner, the yacht offers plenty of space. Also, the 55 cabins for the crew should be mentioned. The yacht’s beautiful amenities include the helipad, cinema, sundeck with pool and bar – and of course the extra Jacuzzi.
This luxury yacht was commissioned by the Russian oligarch Alisher Usmanov in 2008.
At 156 metres in length, the Dilbar is one of the largest yachts in the world. Built in Germany by the Lürssen shipyard, the superyacht offers 3,800 m² of living space, a 25 m pool and many other highlights.
Similarly, Al Said Yacht, launched in 2008 in Germany by the Lürssen shipyard, offers space for up to 70 people. The concert hall is large enough to accommodate a 50-piece orchestra. The crew consists of 154 people who are ready around the clock to meet all the guests’ needs.
Andrey Melnichenko’s 119 metre yacht is visually distinctive.
With more than 24,000 square feet of interior, this yacht features multiple pools, a silver-plated staircase and a helipad. The owner’s suites spread out over 2,583 square metres. Enough space for any extras and personal wishes. One of the three pools is located above the private club and has a glass floor.
This gem has been owned by the Sheikh of Dubai since 2006. It was originally commissioned by Prince Jefri Bolkiah of Brunei. Guests aboard the Dubai will find a glass staircase, swimming pool, helipad and several whirlpools. The decadent interior is full of handcrafted mosaics and bold colours. The Dubai can accommodate up to 115 guests.
Not to be confused with the motor yacht A, this is a kind of upgrade for Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko. At 143 metres, she has 8 decks, an underwater observation room and several other special features.
The crew of 54 looks after the yacht and the up to 20 guests.
Once again, Lürssen Yachts has created a gold piece. The Azzam is considered the most complex and sophisticated yacht ever launched.
With a length of 180 metres and a speed of up to 30 knots, she could almost be called the cheetah of the water.
The stunning interior designed by French interior designer Christophe Leoni.
Nothing exceeds the absurdity of this superyacht. This floating replica of the city of Monaco comes in at a whopping $1.1 billion. Home to the famous Casino Monte Carlo and the Hotel de Paris, Cafe de Paris, La Rascasse and the Loews Hotel, this 500-foot (155-metre) superyacht has only seven guest suites onboard, all with private reception rooms, toilets, dressing rooms and balconies. The main suite is the size of a luxury penthouse. The highlight of the ship is the detailed replica of the Grand Prix race track including tunnel and Rascasse curve. Lots of green plants, a private waterfall and 70 crew members are ready for up to 20 guests.
Roman Abramovich is the proud owner of the Eclipse, which was built by Blohm and Voss in Hamburg and is 536 metres long. There is a disco, two helipads, 24 cabins, space for 70 crew members, two swimming pools, a mini-submarine, and several whirlpools on board. The master suite is 5,000 square feet and has bulletproof windows and even has its own garden. This yacht also has anti-paparazzi laser shielding!
The Lürssen shipyard completed the “Nord” at the end of 2020. The interior and exterior design is by the Italian company Nuvolari Lenard. There are 36 luxury suites on board.
The Russian magnate Alexei Alexandrovich Mordashov had this yacht built at the Lürssen shipyard. Should Mr. Mordashov be visited by his friends with their ‘smaller’ yachts, they can park their yachts comfortably in the yacht garage of the ‘Nord’.
