Meet the Azzam: The World's Largest Superyacht. $605 million US

The world's largest superyacht, called Azzam, is 590 feet long. What's the cost to build this yacht?

A staggering $605 million US!!! No RS group buy for this big toy.

Meet the Azzam, the world's largest superyacht - CNN.com

Based on the article, the annual operating costs for this yacht are about $60 million.

From the article:

At 590- feet long, the Azzam is 57-feet longer than Abramovich's mighty Eclipse -- previously the largest yacht on the waves. The hulking superyacht is significantly longer than a football field, larger than the US Navy's Arleigh Burke-class destroyer and more capacious than many popular cruise ships.


The identity of the huge boat's owner remains a mystery, but some speculate that it belongs to a powerful Middle Eastern billionaire.


The project was brought to fruition by Mubarak Saad al Ahbabi, who assembled a triumvirate of yacht-building super stars: the Azzam's engineering was done by premier German shipbuilding company Lürssen, the exterior design was by Nauta Yachts and the interior was composed by Christophe Leoni.

At what size do these things stop being classified as yachts and become cruise ships?

From what I understand, dark painted hulls is too costly and harder to keep cool in the waters especially at that size above.

I hope the $60M/yr includes top notch security
can you imagine having this thing out in international waters? Pirates be all over it.
I'd install turrets just as a pirate deterrent
edit: the article mentions the other yacht similar has a missile defense system

The Eclipse has bullet proof windows, armour plating, missile defense system, anti-paparazzi shield

I would assume the Azzam would have all that, a nuke, and a private army.

60 mil a year and you can't have your own army?

here's a thought -->how about using one's wealth for the betterment of mankind instead of ostentatious purchases that serve no purpose but to spew more pollution into the atmosphere and oceans..$605 million could do wonders in sub-saharan africa providing basic needs like potable drinking water..or how about a cause closer to home like aid given to help in the care of the 1 million+ refugees from the syrian conflict residing in Lebanese territories..the possibilities are endless!!

or better yet, in sticking with the theme of boats, why not build a hospital ship of sorts. Maybe something along the lines of a Mercy Ship..a ship that makes port of calls in impoverished countries and supplies medical care to those who would otherwise not have access to.

p.s: really nice ship, but utterly useless!
