Superyacht Azzam

azzam

Superyacht Azzam is the World’s largest yacht, with a length of 180 meters. The yacht was built by luxury yacht builder Lürssen for an estimated build price of US$ 600 million. Her exterior design and styling is done by Nauta Yachts. The yacht’s Interior design is done by French designer Christophe Leoni, who has designed a sophisticated and luxurious interior in Empire style. Luxury yacht Azzam is able to navigate at speeds of more than 30 knots. The yacht is powered by a combination of two gas turbines and two diesel engines with a total 94,000 horse power. She is rumored to feature a bullet proof master suite and a missile defense system. Azzam was delivered to her owner in October 2013. In March 2014 she was heading back to the Lurssen yard in Bremen for some post delivery works.  May 2014 update: pretty new photos made by ship-dreams.de of Superyacht Azzam at the Lurssen yard. Also an amazing new video of Azzam sailing back to the yard, see hereunder.

 



Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan

Motor yacht Azzam is probably built for Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Emir of Abu Dhabi and President of the United Arab Emirates (UAE - Emirates). Superyachtfan comes to this conclusion as several highly regarded superyacht sites mention HE Mubarak Bin Saad Al Ahbabi as being related to the Azzam yacht project. HE Mubarak Bin Saad Al Ahbabi is the United Arab Emirates’ Chairman of the President's Private Department. Also Team Azzam is the official Abu Dhabi Volvo Ocean Racing Team, again linking Azzam to Abu Dhabi. Azzam means ‘determination’ in Arabic. So Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan is probably the owner of luxury yacht Azzam. His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, referred to as Sheikh Khalifa, is the President of the United Arab Emirates (UAE)  and emir of Abu Dhabi.  Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan is considered to be one of the world's wealthiest monarchs, with a net worth of USD 15 billion. Sheikh Khalifa also runs the world's second-largest sovereign wealth fund, with reported assets of more than USD 600 billion. In 2010, the world's tallest man-made structure, originally known as Burj Dubai, was renamed to Burj Khalifa, in honor of the Sheikh. Sheikh Khalifa is an active philanthropist. Among several donations, the Sheikh has pledged USD 150 million to the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center to establish a cancer treatment clinic. The Emir previously owned a smaller yacht with the name Azzam. This yacht is now named Adamas II and is owned by Digital Multimedia Technologies founder Allesandro Falciai. His company merged with Silvio Berlusconi’s Mediaset in 2011.
