Voici un reportage de plusieurs pages sur quelques uns des plus beaux Yachts du monde.
Folies créatrices, démesures et combats de "j'ai l'plus grand, pousse toi, c'est moi le meilleur et plus riche"
En effet cette "compétition" entre sociétés créatrices de design, et de construction,
font bien avancer pour moi plusieurs éléments : LES IDEES, LA TECHNOLOGIE ET LE DESIGN.
Par contre elle ne fait pas reculer le prix, un exemple le
yacht le plus grand du monde l"AZZAM",
avec son réservoir de carburant de plus de 1 millions de litres,
et ses 180 mètres de ponts soit plus de la moitié
de la Tour Eiffel coûte la modique somme
de 468 millions d'euros. Nous sommes effectivement plus sur Terre avec des chiffres comme ceux-là.
Vous découvrirez dans cette sélection de photos, quelques uns des plus
beaux palaces puissant voguant sur la mer. Comme dirait Georges PERNOULT
"A bientôt et bon vent !"
Here is a story of several pages on some of the most beautiful yachts in the world.
Creative follies and excesses fights "I have the biggest, shoot you, I'm the best and richest"
In fact, this "competition" between creative design firms, and construction
make good progress for me several elements: IDEAS, TECHNOLOGY AND DESIGN.
By cons it does not roll back prices, such as the largest yacht in the world the "AZZAM"
with its fuel tank over 1 million liters,
and 180 meters of bridges more than half of the Eiffel Tower costs a whopping $
468 million. We are actually more to Earth with numbers like those.
Find out in this selection of photos, some of the most
beautiful palaces powerful floating on the sea. To paraphrase Georges PERNOULT
"So long and good luck!"

The Dilbar Superyacht, built in 2008 by Lürssen Yachts, belongs to Russian oligarch Alisher Usmanov.
It was named after his mother and boasts one of the world’s largest boats measuring 360.89 feet long in total.
It is frequently used by its billionaire owner to visit his private islands. The Dilbar boasts some swimming pools
and a helipad, amongst many other luxury features, with enough space on deck to accommodate 20 guests
and a crew of 48.
SUPERYACHT A - Design by philippe Stark - 323 millions $ (copyright photo : DR)
There is nothing unique about the name of this luxury liner however, the 400-feet long Superyacht A does boast
an original design. Reminiscent of a stealth warship or submarine, it was designed by Blohm + Voss of Hamburg
and named after the first initials of the fortunate owners, Andrey and Aleksandra Melnichenko, the Russian billionaire
and his wife. As can be expected, the Superyacht A comprises the epitome of luxury. The boat interior extends
over 24,000 square feet housing a 2,500 square feet master bedroom and disco, as well as six guest suites
which can be converted into four larger staterooms thanks to the moving walls. In addition, mirrored surfaces
feature extensively throughout the interior whilst the furniture, glassware and tableware are made of French crystal.
Above deck, the Superyacht A houses a helicopter hangar, as well as a 30 foot speed boat kept in the hull and
three swimming pools, one of which is glass.-bottomed and situated directly above the aforementioned disco.
Finally, it has been designed to accommodate up to 14 guests and boasts enough space for 42 crew members.
Superyacht AZZAM - 650 millions $ (copyright photo : DR)
Lürssen Yachts is behind this luxury liner which was recently delivered to fortunate Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nayan,
President of the United Arab Emirates and Emir of Abu Dhabi for no less than $650 million. This makes it the
world’s fourth most expensive luxury yacht with the makers boasting that the Azzam is “the most complex and
challenging yacht that has ever been built”. However, not only has the Azzam been dominating the headlines for
its hefty price tag but also due to its immense size. Measuring in at 590 feet long, this floating extravagance
boasts the largest private yacht in the world thus knocking the Eclipse, belonging to Russian billionaire Roman
Abramovich, off the top spot. In addition, this impressive superyacht is expected to be one of the fastest reaching
speeds of more than 30 knots, or 35mph. The luxury interiors were designed by French interior decorator
Christophe Leoni which has been described as “sophisticated and luxurious in a turn of the century Empire style”.
For the moment little else is known about the Azzam. Now the only question remaining is, with the world’s billionaires
constantly competing to own the largest superyacht, how long will it remain at the top?
The most expensive Superyacht HISTORY SUPREME - 4,5 billions $ (copyright photo : DR)
Finally, boasting the world’s most expensive yacht is the History Supreme. This pricey 100-foot vessel
was designed by world-renowned UK luxury designer Stuart Hughes, took over 3 years to complete and
was purchased by an anonymous Malaysian businessman for a whopping $4.5 billion dollars! This staggering
sum is owed to the solid gold and platinum used to assembly this luxury liner which features no less than
100,000 kg (220,000 Ibs) of these precious metals. They adorn the entirety of the boat right from the base
of the vessel, coated in a thin layer of solid gold, to the dining area, deck, rails, staircases and anchor.
One of the most outstanding features of this magnificent superyacht is the master bedroom. It boasts a wall feature
made from meteorite rock and a statue made from genuine Tyrannosaurus Rex bones! In addition, a
68 kg 24-carat gold Aquavista Panoramic Wall Aquarium graces the master suite and on board is a liquor
bottle featuring an extremely rare 18.5 carat diamond worth $45 million alone! Finally, an iPhone wrapped
in 500 cut diamonds, including two interchangeable diamonds fitted over the “home button, a 7.4 carat pink
diamond and a rare 8 carat diamond, add to the many extravagant features on the History Supreme, the most
expensive yacht in the world. Read more at:
