The world’s largest yachts: updated ranking

A ranking that should be updated practically every month! In fact, the rate at which these giants of the luxuriant sea are being built is really very high. Here, as of today September 2022, is the ranking of the largest yachts in the world!

The world’s largest yachts, called superyachts or megayachts, represent more than just an expression of luxury and wealth, although these elements are present in a major way during the production of these enormous yachts. These vessels are true feats of design and engineering, which is why there are only a handful of shipyards, naval architects, and designers up to the challenge around the world.

Designers, shipbuilders, and owners are developing a trend toward making these types of boats optimal, not only in terms of appearance and functionality, but especially in terms of important new issues such as eco-sustainability. Let’s take a look together at which are the world’s largest motor and sailing yachts.

  1. REV – 182.9 M

The REV is not only the world’s largest yacht thanks to the 9 meters that separate it from the competition, but it is also cutting edge in terms of design and specifications. A collaboration between naval architect Espen Øino and designer and owner Kjell Inge Røkke, it ensures the highest standards of fuel efficiency, pollution, and environmental impact; thanks to a heat recovery system, high-tech incinerators, sound and vibration reduction, diesel electric motors, and a ballast water retention system, the yacht is designed to comply with the IMO’s Polar Code, which requires ships to be able to operate autonomously for 114 days in Arctic and Antarctic conditions. Designed as both a research vessel and a luxury expedition ship, it has an incredible range of 21,120 nautical miles sailing at 11 knots. Although REV has already been launched at the VARD shipyard in Romania, it will still take about 8 months of work before the ship is ready to accommodate passengers.

  1. Azzam – 182 M

Azzam can reach a speed of 30 knots thanks to a total of 94,000 horsepower from diesel and gas turbines, an impressive figure considering its length, a full 182 meters. Launched by the Dutch Lürssen Yachts in 2013, Azzam was the queen in the mega-yacht field until recently; built for the sheikh of the United Arab Emirates, this privately owned vessel is shrouded in uncertainty. Indeed, few firm details are available on the interior, other than that Frenchman Christophe Leoni is the designer. It is said to have cost more than $600 million and to have taken only four years to build.

  1. Eclipse – 163 M

Built in Hamburg by Blohm & Voss shipyards, Eclipse was inaugurated in 2010 and delivered to Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. There are 17 cabins on board, as well as a spa, gym and beach club, plus state-of-the-art electronics and a crew of 70 to cater to guests’ every desire and request. An absolute temple of luxury, she carries three helicopters and has two huge pools, one of which can turn into a dance floor. With a maximum speed of 21 knots and a range of 6,000 nautical miles, guests have many options when it comes to choosing a travel destination.

  1. Dubai – 162 M

The Dubai, named after the home country of the owner, Sheikh and prime minister of the United Arab Emirates Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, was born of the collaboration between the two leading mega-yacht shipyards-Blohm + Voss and Lürssen. The project had been halted in 1998, leaving the hull and superstructure skeleton abandoned; the Dubai government decided to purchase them and entrust the project to Platinum Yachts. With a heliport, a submarine garage, a disco, a cinema and more, each of the 24 guests can find their own activity on board.

  1. Dilbar – 156 M

Launched in 2016 by Lürssen in 2016, Dilbar’s exterior was designed by Espen Øino (same naval architect as REV), who is praised for making this mammoth yacht sleek and streamlined. The luxurious interior, on the other hand, is the work of Winch Designs, although few details about it have been revealed. With a 24-meter (180 m³) indoor pool, the longest ever installed aboard a yacht, billionaire Alisher Usmanov certainly spared no expense; the Russian tycoon himself had ordered the construction because he was dissatisfied with his previous yacht, which cost 110 million euros and was 110 meters long.

  1. Al Said – 155 M

Al Said, by Lürssen and launched in 2007, was originally commissioned as ‘Sunflower’ and is designed by Espen Øino, although she has more classic lines than the similarly sized Dilbar. Owned by one of the richest men in the world, the Sultan of Oman Qaboos bin Said al Said, this yacht is just one of his expensive collection. Al Said can reach a speed of 22 knots and is said to have a 50-person concert hall, while the guest capacity of the entire yacht reaches 70 guests and 150 crew members.

  1. Topaz – 148 M

Few details are available regarding the features of the Topaz mega yacht of Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, deputy prime minister of the UAE and chairman of Manchester City. It is 147 meters long and appears to cost around 460 million euros to produce; the prince spared no expense and his garage contains submarines, catamarans, inflatable boats, seabobs, and paddle surf boards. The eight decks are connected by an elevator that joins as many as 26 luxurious suites capable of accommodating up to 52 guests on board. Built by Lürssen Yachts in 2012, it also became famous in 2018 for hosting the famous actor Leonardo Di Caprio in his stay in Brazil during the World Cup celebrated in the South American country.
