Azzam, which was built by German firm Lurssen, is the world's largest private yacht at a staggering 590 feet long. The vessel is a $600 million floating palace that has knocked Russian tycoon Roman Abramovich off the owners' top spot of the billionaires’ megayacht club.

Abramovich’s yacht Eclipse is a mere 533 feet.

Azzam can travel in excess of 30 knots, with power coming from a combination of two gas turbines and two diesel engines with a total of 94,000 horsepower.
