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.

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.
