Belgian-based Emocean Yacht Design unveiled a rendering of a 200-metre gigayacht, which if completed would be the world’s largest yacht by far – “eclipsing” Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich’s Eclipse by a whopping 30 metres. This stunning design can’t be dismissed as a mere pipe dream either – Emocean’s awesome 165-metre design for the UK’s Devonport Yachts was featured at the Abu Dhabi Yacht Show. Both are completely bespoke designs, with equipment, styling, configuration, class and all completely tailored to the desires and tastes of the client.
The 200-metre monster features a drive-in garage, two 30-mestre day boats, helipad and hanger, 30-metre swimming pool, nightclub, casino, games room, two-level cinema, three beach clubs, health spa, and 10 VIP rooms, 22 guest suites and a private owners deck accommodating a total of 45 passengers, along with 70 crew. Even at that size she’ll be impressively fast, with a planned maximum speed of 28 knots, a cruising speed of 20 knots and a range of 6,500 nautical miles at cruising speed. The price is undetermined however expect it to reach well over $500M.
