The actual gross tonnage of the mighty 180m giga yacht AZZAM has been unveiled, indicating that the world’s largest superyacht – in terms of length – is not the largest superyacht in the world in terms of tonnage. Mega yacht AZZAM’s actual gross tonnage is 13,136 tons, meaning she places second, following the 155m superyacht AL SAID, with 15,850 tons.
Both superyachts were built by the leading German shipyard, Lurssen. The 2013 AZZAM yacht boasts stylish and elegant exteriors by Nauta Yachts and interiors by Christophe Leoni, while the 2008 AL SAID yacht has been superbly penned by Espen Oeino, with interior design by Redman Whiteley Dixon.
This month saw another giant vessel emerge from Lurssen’s facility in Lemwerder, Germany, the 156m mega yacht OMAR (project name), expected to be delivered within the next year. No details have been ever released about this striking vessel, so it is difficult to say if OMAR beats either AZZAM or AL SAID in terms of tonnage.
