Largest Mega Yacht in the world

Azzam, thought to be the world’s largest yacht, launched.
Lürssen won't comment on the ownership. But industry sources say the owner is likely the royal family of the United Arab Emirates.

Lürssen will say that the boat was "without the a doubt the most challenging yacht that has ever been built." Aside from its sheer size, Azzam had to be super-fast and able to ply shallow waters "while providing luxurious and sophisticated accommodation to its guests."
A rear view of the Azzam shows the vessel’s jets.
For speed, the boat is powered by jets rather than propellers. It's got 94, 000 horsepower under the hood. And it hit a top speed of 30 knots, which is about 30 percent faster than most mega-yachts. "It's like a 590-foot jet ski, " said one executive involved in the project.
There are no immediate descriptions available of the interior, though we know it's in the hands of French interior designer Christophe Leoni, who's using a "turn of the century Empire style." Nor do we have critical details on the number of Jacuzzis, rotating beds, or helicopter pads. But the main salon, at 95 feet long by 60 feet wide has no pillars dividing the space.
