Roman Abramovich is probably seething right now since he's no longer the owner of the world’s largest yacht. According to Superyachts.com, that title has been swiped by an anonymous billionaire who commissioned this 590-foot vessel called 'Azzam' from builder Lurssen.
The yacht is almost as large as a cruise ship, powered by water jets,
and is capable of moving a time-and-half faster than an average cruise
ship. It would cost an estimated $100,000 just to fill its fuel tank.
For those of you wondering about the mysterious buyer, the fact that it stands for for perseverance or determination in Arabic might give you a clue on where the order came from. So far, Lurssen is keeping tight-lipped about the details of the commissioner, or the interior of the vessel.
