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

Posted on

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 biggy.

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.

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.

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!
