The largest yachts measured by length
In general, the size of a large yacht is measured by its length. But a more accurate factor is the displacement and/or the volume of a yacht.
The yacht Dilbar is currently considered to be the biggest private yacht in the world. With a length of 157 meters (512ft) the mega yacht 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.

A New Top One position?
Soon Dilbar will leave her #1 position as two larger projects are currently under construction. Kjell Inge Rokke‘s yacht REV OCEAN will be delivered soon. And in Germany, a very large yacht (project Blue) is under construction for Sheikh Mansour al Nahyan. She is reportedly 160 meters long.

Also, Russian billionaires own large yachts. Dilbar for example is owned by Alisher Usmanov.
What 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 displacement is measured in tons.
