Azzam is the world’s longest yacht. She can reach a top speed of 30 knots.

Azzam Yacht

The yacht Azzam is the world’s largest yacht, with a length of 180 meters. Azzam is actually “just” the world longest yacht, as the new Dilbar has a higher volume and bigger displacement.

A US$ 400 Million Value

The yacht was built by luxury yacht builder Lürssen for an estimated build price of US$ 400 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.

30 Knots Top Speed

She 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 of 94,000 horse power.

She has a shallow draft for her size, but this allows her to reach the high top speed.

Bullet Proof Owners Suite

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 Breme. For some post delivery works.

May 2014 update: pretty new photos made by of Azzam at the Lurssen yard. Also an amazing new video of Azzam sailing back to the yard, see hereunder.

Interior of the yacht

Not much is known about her interior. There are no Azzam inside photos available. But she has accommodations for 36 guests and a crew of 60. It is said that she carries a missile defense system and a submarine.

Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan

Motor yacht Azzam is built for Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. He is 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.

Team Azzam

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. In the meantime we know that the yacht is permanently based in Abu Dhabi.

President of the United Arab Emirates

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 Net Worth

Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan is considered to be one of the world's wealthiest monarchs, with a net worth of US$ 15 billion. Sheikh Khalifa also runs the world's second-largest sovereign wealth fund, with reported assets of more than US$ 600 billion.

Burj Khalifa

In 2010, the world's tallest man-made structure, originally known as Burj Dubai, was renamed to Burj Khalifa, in honor of the Sheikh.

She has a height of 830 m (2,722 ft) including the antenna and a roof height of 828 m (2,717 ft). It took 5 years to complete the building.

Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al NahyanPhilanthropy

Sheikh Khalifa is an active philanthropist. Among several donations, the Sheikh has pledged US$ 150 million to the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center to establish a cancer treatment clinic.

Previous Azzam

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.

Al Nahyan Family Yachts

Sheikh Khalifa’s half-brother Hamdan is the owner of the yacht Yas. And his other half-brother Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan is the owner of the 147 meter yacht Topaz. So the brothers owns already 3 yachts in the world’s top 10 of biggest yachts.
