World’s largest yachts are getting larger

The 10 largest yachts launched in the last year indicate upward mobility in the fleet.

An examination of the world’s 100 largest yachts shows that although the top slot was unchanged in 2015, the 10 largest yachts launched in the last year indicate upward mobility in the fleet.

A list compiled by Yachts International shows that although Lürssen’s Azzam retains her distinction as the world’s largest yacht, several have been built at the upper end.

For instance, Oceanco’s 300-foot (91.5-meter) Equanimity — the largest new launch on last year’s list — would have missed the cut entirely this year, with 303-foot (92.5-meter) Feadship Royal Romance rounding out this year’s list at No. 10.
