Dubai Yacht Interior

Dubai Yacht InteriorDubai is one of the longest yachts in the world. Just a bit shorter than Megayacht Eclipse, Dubai measures 530 feet (160 meters) and displaces over 9,000 tons. Powering Dubai yacht are four MTU 20V 1163 TB93 engines, which generate a combined thrust of 33,000 horse power).

What is now Dubai yacht was first commissioned in the 1990s by Jeffrey Bolkiah, the troubled prince of Brunei, but the construction by Germany's Lurssen and Blohm & Voss shipyards stopped even before the hull and the superstructure were finished.
In 2001, the unfinished hull and superstructure of Dubai yacht were bought by Mohammed bin al Maktoum, the Emir of Dubai and the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, when he was still the crown prince. Mohammed bin al Maktoum commissioned Platinum Yachts to complete the hull and the superstructure into today's megayacht. That work took 5 years.

Moored next to the summer palace of Mohammed bin al Maktoum, the Dubai can carry over a million liters of fuel, has a range of 8,500 nautical miles, and can reach speeds of up to 26 knots.

The defining interior architecture showpiece of this megayacht, of course, is the famed spiral staircase above. The color-changing glass steps of the staircase turn the natural light flooding from the top deck into a kaleidoscopic seven-story stairway to heaven.

This megayacht's amenities include a swimming pool, jacuzzis, a helicopter, several tenders and are aimed more at relaxation in a cool environment protected from the oppressive heat of the Middle East than adrenaline pumping ocean-going adventures.
