Dilbar, a 512-foot yacht that weighs 15,917 tons, is the largest motor yacht in the world by gross tonnage

This morning.,

Via Business Insider:

The fate of Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov’s mega-yacht is unclear. Forbes initially reported that the yacht was seized on Wednesday, citing unnamed sources, but later issued a correction last night saying it was not seized.

“Three sources had told Forbes it had been seized, but a representative for Usmanov cited the statement from the ministry in Hamburg to confirm that it had not,” according to Forbes’ update. “In its statement, the ministry elaborated that the German federal customs agency is the ‘responsible enforcement authority’ and would have to issue an export waiver for the yacht to leave, and that ‘no yacht leaves port that is not allowed to do so.'”

Not me Prius.


Behold: the Sinot Aqua – an ultra luxury conceptual super yacht with a nod to environmental responsibility. Powered by PEM fuel cells fed by liquid hydrogen, the only by product of propulsion is water.

Stealthy, on account of its electric drive, the ship has a 3,750 nautical mile range at a speed of 17 knots.

The impressive 112m length provides for a wide beam pavilion on the upper level, beach deck, VIP staterooms, a large pool and the usual slew of sunpads, ‘wellness zones’ and outdoor dining areas.

No, it wouldn’t fit in Bray harbour or hook up nice behind a 1998 Subaru Forester.


Behold:  tennis superstar Rafael Nadal’s recently commissioned 80 Sunreef Power luxury catamaran.

Fully customised with a high grade adjustable teak deck, bar, open kitchen, six cabins and garage filled with jet skis and other water toys, Nadal will take delivery sometime next year.

Ah, but will it make him happy though?

Probably, yes.


Behold: the LOV38 – a concept named after the collaboration between  Lynx Yachts, Omega Architects and Van Oossanen Naval Architects. But you knew that.

Fancy a luxury cruiser with an ultra stable fast-displacement hull, twin 2,000 MTU diesel engines,  a top speed of 21.7 knots, two exterior dining areas, a full beam master suite, up to six guest rooms, and a spacious ‘beach club’ area? Thought so.

Price on application.


Behold: the SX76 yacht from Italian yard San Lorenzo – part flybridge cruiser, part recreational explorer.

Powered by twin Volvo Penta IPS 1050s with a top speed of 22 knots, theSX76’s open top deck allows guests to move freely from kitchen, dining and living area out to the aft seating and an 18m² beach deck doubling as space for tender and jet ski.

Below deck, bespoke Lissoni interiors continue through a master suite, two twin berths and a forward VIP room.

Price on application but don’t expect much change from €4,000,000.


Behold: the SolarImpact Electric Yacht – a 25m twin-hulled cruiser powered by two 500kW engines fed entirely by roof mounted solar panels and a battery array.

Capable of 22 knots with AI guidance systems that allow the vessel to be controlled by a single person. Possibly you.

Price on application but if you’re asking, you’re not buying.


Behold the Numarine 26XP – the GTi of expedition yachts or, perhaps, the Z4 of recreational trawlers: it’s hard to say. 26 meters long and powered by two 1550hp diesel engines, it can reach a top speed of 28 knots (cruising at 18) and is designed to berth at harbours too small to accommodate the bulkier barques of fellow plutocrats.

A luxurious interior includes 4 guest cabins (2 VIP), a master suite, various lounging and dining areas and a ‘wet bar’ beneath the enormous flying bridge.
