Azzam – The worlds largest superyacht tops £400 million

 Azzam worlds largest superyacht
 Super yacht Azzam is recognisably the new worlds largest super yacht after easily snatching the tittle away from the now 2nd largest super yacht Eclipse.

Measuring in at an eye watering 180 meters or 590.55 feet Azzam is a floating town capable of traveling the worlds oceans at a whopping 31.5 knots thanks to the two gas turbine / diesel motors putting out a goliath 94,000 horse power combined.

Azzam is rumoured to feature a bullet proof master suite and a missile defence system among the obligatory jet ski facilities and fwd helicopter pad.

 But who can afford such a vessel that requires a missile defence system you may be thinking, well the simple answer is nobody knows. How ether it has been rumoured that Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Emir of Abu Dhabi and President of the United Arab Emirates could be connected to the purchase of the £400 million pound super yacht. With an estimated net worth of $15 billion USD or £10 billion GBP a mere $400 million is literally a drop in the ocean for an Arab president.
