The World’s Biggest Yachts and their Owners

The largest superyachts in the world, measured by length.

In general the size of a yacht is measured by its length, but a more accurate factor is the displacement of a yacht. The displacement is the weight of water that a ship displaces when it is floating, which in turn is the weight of a ship (and its contents). The yacht Dilbar is currently considered to be the world’s biggest yacht. With a length of 157 meter (512ft) she is number #4 on the ‘list by length’, but with a displacement tonnage of 15.917 gross tons, she is actually the largest yacht in the world. Only the world’s richest billionaires are able to purchase and maintain these yachts.


Azzam - 180,6 meter (593 ft)  - Emir Of Dubai The yacht Azzam is considered to be the World’s largest yacht. Azzam is owned by Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Emir of Abu Dhabi and President of the United Arab Emirates. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan is one of the world's wealthiest royals, with a net worth of US$ 15 billion.  Azzam was built by luxury yacht builder Lürssen for an estimated build price of US$ 400 million. Her exterior design is done by Nauta Yachts. Powered by two gas turbines and two diesel engines she can reach a top speed of 30 knots.

# 1 - Azzam

Eclipse - 162 meter (533 ft)  - Roman Abramovich The yacht Eclipse is known as ‘the US$ 1.5 billion yacht’, although her real cost price was considerably less. Her original contract price was around EUR 400 million, or USD 500 million. Superyacht Eclipse was the largest yacht in the world, but this title is now reserved for superyacht Azzam. The yacht Eclipse is owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, one of the richest people in the world. Eclipse has two swimming pools and two helicopter pads, and a crew of 70. Eclipse was delivered by Blohm and Voss in 2010.

# 2 - Eclipse

Dubai - 162 meter (532 ft)  - Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum of Dubai The yacht Dubai is the royal yacht of Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum. The yacht is more or less permanently based in Dubai and is often used by his children. The yacht was originally commissioned at Lurssen Yachts by Prince Jefri of Brunei, but the project was abandoned in 1998. In 2006 she was finished by Platinum Yachts, on behalf of the Dubai Government. The yacht has accommodations for 24 guests, and has a crew of 115.

Dilbar - 156 meter (512 ft)  - Alisher Usmanov The yacht Dilbar is actually the largest yacht, measured by displacement. This means she has the biggest interior and the highest weight. She is built for Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov, as a replacement for his ‘smaller’ 110 meter Dilbar (now Ona). Alisher Usmanov is one of Russia’s richest men with a net worth of US$ 13 billion. He is the majority shareholder of MetalloInvest and he also owns Mail.ru Russia’s number one Internet company.

# 4 - Dilbar

Al Said - 155 meter (509 ft) - Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said

The yacht Al Said is the royal yacht of Qaboos bin Said Al Said, the Sultan of Oman. The yacht can accommodate 65 guests and 140 crew members. Sultan Qaboos is one of the richest royals in the world,  his net worth is estimated at more than US$ 1 billion. Sultan Quaboos owns several yachts, including the Fulk Al Salamah, at 150 meter she is almost as big as Al Said, but acts as her support yacht. She #6 in our ‘List of Largest Yachts’

Fulk al Salamah - 150 meter (492 ft) - Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said

The yacht Fulk Al Salamah is the support vessel for Sultan Qaboos main yacht Al Said. Fulk al Salamah means ‘Ship of Peace’. The assumption of her use as a support vessel is due to a lack of exterior space on board. She is often seen together with Al Said. Not much is known about Fulk Al Salamah and ever her length is not sure. We follow the numbers of SuperYachtTimes.com. Do you know more about Fulk al Salamah? Please do send us a message.

Topaz - 147 meter (483 ft) - Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan

The yacht Topaz is owned by Mansour bin Zayed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates. He is half-brother of the President of UAE, Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, owner of the yacht Azzam (See #1 above). Topaz was delivered by Lurssen in 2012. Not much is known about the yacht, but she is frequently used by the Al Nahyan family. In June 2014 Leonardo Do Caprio was spotted on board, during the football worldcup in Rio de Janeiro

Prince Abdulaziz - 147 meter (482 ft) - King of Saudi Arabia

The yacht Prince Abdul Aziz is assumed to be the official Royal Yacht of the King of Saudi Arabia. Most of the times she is based in Greece (where many Arab royals berth their yachts). But when traveling she can often been found near Marbella, Spain or Antibes, France, where the Saudi King owns summer palaces. Al Salamah was built in 1984 in Denmark, for the late King Fahd. The yacht is probably named after King Fahd’s youngest son Prince Abdul Azziz bin Fahd.

El Mahrousa - 146 meter (478 ft) - Egypt Presidential yacht. The yacht El Mahrousa was built in 1863 as the Egyptian Royal yacht for Khedive Ismail Pasha. Later she became the official Presidential yacht. She was the first ship to cross the Suez Canal in 1869 during its inauguration, and was again the first ship to cross the New Suez Canal in 2015. El Mahrousa is the oldest active superyacht, and is cared for by the Egyptian navy. She rarely leaves her home berth: not more than 3 times a year. The movie (left) has some rare interior photos.

# 9 - El Mahrousa

Yas - 141 meter (463 ft) - Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The # 10 on our list is the yacht Yas. She is the 3rd yacht in this top 10, owned by the same Al Nahyan Family, just like Azzam and Topaz. Sheikh Hamdan is a half-brother of the current Emir and UAE president Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Yas was originally a Dutch navy frigate, known as the HNLMS Piet Hein. She was converted into a yacht at  Abu Dhabi MAR to a design of Pierrejean Design Studio. We think she is not the prettiest yacht around, but she is a head turner. Unfortunately she rarely leaves the UAE.
