Wow Girl – World’s Largest GT Yacht DILBAR Is Fine!

Posted on

GIGAYACHT

Every time I lay eyes on Lürssen yacht DILBAR, one word always comes to mind – Wow!

There’s just no other way to put it – she’s a biggie.

WHERE IS SHE MOORED?

Currently moored in her home berth in Antibes along the French Riviera, the 156 meter superyacht cuts a stunning, massive silhouette at night, backlit by her massive array of underwater blue LED lights.

HOW BIG IS SHE?

So just how big is big?  Well, in terms of length, she’s not the largest – that title currently belongs to another Lurssen, the 180 meter motor yacht AZZAM.  Where DILBAR takes the cake is in terms of her volume.  In layman’s terms – she’s a brick house, a la Kim Kardashian (sans the incessant, annoying selfies)!

In terms of gross tonnage, she’s enormous – 15,917 GT, with dimensions measuring 156 meters in length, a stocky 23 meter beam and drawing an incredible 6 meters below the waterline.

 

WHAT MAKES HER STAND OUT?

Of course, you need all that volume to fit her recordbreaking features, including a 180 cubic meter swimming pool, believed to be the largest on any yacht (certainly larger than on any private luxury yacht charter vessels)…and a 30,000 KW electric diesel power plant, claimed to be the most powerful ever fitted to a superyacht.

Here’s a cool fact – the combined length of the cabling on board stretches 1,100 kilometres, over an impressive 3,800 square meter guest spaces!  How would you like to be the cable guy who gets called when the cable TV is on the fritz???  Yikes!

TOP 10 LARGEST YACHTS

A quick look at the top ten world’s largest yachts puts to bed any doubt which shipyard can lay claim to the most superyachts on the seas. 

LURSSEN STANDS OUT

Of the ten largest yachts in service today, Germany’s Lürssen Yachts has built 5 of them, including 3 of the top 5.
With the recent launch of the world’s largest yacht, motor yacht AZZAM, Lürssen also lays claim to the top spot.  Lürssen Yachts launched the 180 meter yacht AZZAM in early 2013, wrestling the top spot away from the Roman Abramovich owned motor yacht ECLIPSE, a 162.50 meter Blohm & Voss GmbH vessel launched in 2010.

DETAILS ABOUT LURSSEN

Founded by Friedrich Lurssen in 1875, Fr. Lürssen Werft GmbH & Co. remains a family-run yard, now in its fourth generation of private ownership.  With headquarters in Bremen-Vegesack, Lurssen Yachts is renown for building some of the world’s finest luxury yachts between 33 and 200 metres, and can also lay claim to building the world’s first motor yacht in 1886.  Lürssen operates 5 yards in northern Germany and employs more than 1000 craftsmen and 200 engineers.

LURSSEN VESSELS

The company lends its name to some of the charter industry’s largest yachts.
