Benefiting from the latest technology and contemporary design, the 2014 model 43 is set to become the new icon in her class.

Its official, Mega-Yacht ‘Azzam’, built by German firm Lurssen has become the largest Mega-Yacht of them all and dwarfs Roman Abramovich‘s Mega-Yacht ‘Eclipse’ by some 57 feet.

Azzam was officially unveiled in April, but was seen by ‘yachtspotters’ being tested on the North Sea at the weekend.
