Back in April 2013 Lürssen, the leading shipyard for large luxury yacht building, launched the 180m yacht AZZAM - the largest motor yacht in the world!

The principal designer and the man who defined the original creative idea based on his in-depth knowledge of the environment was Eng. Mubarak Saad al Ahbabi. He personally assembled a world-class team, which he personally directed in all areas of the development of the Azzam project. Under his leadership the original concept of the yacht was developed starting with the overall requirements with regards to general layout, size and performance and exterior style.

Mr Al Ahbabi brief was to build a large luxury yacht with an innovative and timeless design that would be able to travel at high speed in warm and shallow waters, whilst providing luxurious and sophisticated accommodation to its guests.

Under the personal guidance of Eng. Mubarak Saad al Ahbabi, the technical engineering was developed by Lürssen, the exterior design by Nauta Yachts and the interior design by Christophe Leoni to create what is, without doubt, the most complex and challenging yacht which has ever been built.

The yacht AZZAM has broken new grounds in terms of dimension, performance and technology. On top of becoming the largest yacht in the world with a length of 180 meters, with a top speed of over 30 knots she is also one of the fastest giga yachts too.  Finally, in terms of building time, she added another ground breaking record. Lürssen Managing Partner, Peter Lürssen proudly said: "When she will be delivered later this year, she will have been in build for only three years following one year of engineering."  "She truly represents another milestone in not only our history but yachting history as well", he added.

The overall design of super yacht Azzam has strength of character and sense of purpose, yet it maintains a timeless elegance, incorporating all the elements of visionary contemporary modern design. Nauta CEO Mario Pedol stated: "When I first saw the scale model before the general presentation to the Principal, I was 100 % happy with the outcome and so was the Principal. Such recognition made me confident that we had achieved our goal".

Under the direction of Eng. Mubarak Saad al Ahbabi the best solutions were found in order to satisfy the specific requirements with regards to design and technology and thereby creating a yacht that meets all the expectations. The end result is a truly sophisticated Super Mega Yacht.

Amongst many other features the yacht has a main salon with a length of 29 m and a beam of 18m with an open plan and no pillars. She will travel in excess of 30 knots, powered by a combination of 2 gas turbines and 2 diesel engines with a total of 94000 horse powers. 

The interior decoration was undertaken by the renowned French designer Christophe Leoni who is proud to have been able to realise a sophisticated and luxurious interior in a turn of the century Empire style. In one of his first statements, Mr Leoni said: "Though Yachting is not my main area of business, I thoroughly enjoyed the cooperation with Nauta and Lürssen and am confident that the final yacht is everything and more the owner expects." he said.

The whole project was overseen by the owners technical consultants at Burgess and their CEO Jonathan Beckett.
