Lürssen Yachts Delivers the Fourth Largest Yacht in the World
Lürssen Yachts’ newly delivered Dilbar superyacht stretches to nearly 512 feet, giving a whole new meaning to the term superyacht. The ship took 52 months to build and is currently the world’s largest motor yacht by volume, and the fourth-largest by length. And Dilbar holds another distinction as well: Its nearly 50,000-gallon indoor pool is the largest ever built on a yacht.
A diesel-electric powerplant propels the nearly 16,000-ton yacht at a constant speed of 22.5 knots. The behemoth yacht’s timeless ivory-and-bronze exteriors were designed by Espen Øino, while its airy interiors were envisioned by Andrew Winch. The yacht was delivered to its new owners in May. Though little is known about the brilliant beauty thus far, this much is certain: It promises an unforgettable ride for those lucky enough to experience it. (lurssen-yachts.com)
