A huge project for the new yacht Azzam who is destined to break the record the world’s longest private boat, wresting the title to Roman Abramovich and his Ecplispe. According to early rumors, and also published the first photographs from the Daily Mail, the yacht will be about 180 meters long, exceeding the yacht of Russian billionaire “stop” to 163.5 meters in length. The cost would be around 400 million pounds, almost 500 million euros and, always the first indiscretions, should join the fleet of the Saudi royal family, patrons of the yacht. The project during construction works and tremble in the Lurssen shipyard in Germany. As he told the British tabloid, the workers and naval engineers have already been forced to move the yacht by the dock of 170 meters to that of the 220 meters, so you can resume work, now that the space was finished. Like all large vessels, especially those linked to famous names, the Azzam, has already made headlines even before it was completed, because the same experts appeared truly stupendous. Peter Seyfferth of TheYachtPhoto.com, told the Daily Mail that the photographers themselves were impressed by the size. “Hard to say at this stage, but I think a boat is much more elegant and interesting of the same Eclipse”. From the first rumors also referred to a special propulsion system which would also make it one of the fastest, besides being the longest. The dimensions are such that even surpasses some cruise ships, but if it were really the Saudi royal family, the customer, it is probable that the port does not leave very often. “It’s more a matter of prestige, to have the largest yacht in the world,” said Seyfferth. So difficult that it can also be hired, as happens in other cases. Other details are not currently available because, in the case of projects with clients such important and so special, they are the Saudi royals or Abramovich, the company holds very strict confidentiality agreements. You can still venture that, next all’Azzam, there will be a small fleet of boats made of much smaller size, which normally make up the most important nautical properties. In addition to the cost of construction, including major maintenance costs and management: the tank seems to contain something like a million liters, and will serve a very large staff to take care of the yacht every day. But if it is true that the owners are the Saudi royals all this should not be a problem. We will keep you updated.
