Lurssen's 180m Superyacht 'Azzam'The World's Largest Yacht! On April 5th, 2013 Lürssen Yachts launched the World's Largest Yacht, the 180-meter project 'AZZAM'. An industry leader in superyacht construction, the German shipyard has launched many of the world's largest, most notable builds including the 115-meter Pelorus, the 147-meter Topaz and the 138-meter Rising Sun. Under the 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 would become the most complex and challenging yacht ever been built. Ahbabi assembled and oversaw a world-class team for the project. Under his leadership, the overall requirements for general layout, size and performance and exterior style were developed. His 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 while providing luxurious and sophisticated accommodation to its guests.
