Ever wondered how much fuel it takes to fill up the world's largest superyachts? We have. That's why we decided to compare the fuel tank capacity of the world's current largest superyacht with some smaller vehicles and craft that are a little closer to home.
Lürssen's M/Y Azzam currently holds the title of the largest superyacht in the world, and has retained this status since her delivery in late 2013. At over 180 metres (590 feet) in length, she has a 50-person crew and weighs over 13,000GT, yet she is still able to clock up impressive speeds of up to 30 knots.
She is owned by the president of the United Arab Emirates, and amongst other features suited to this class of boat, is fitted with her own missile defence system.
Given the sheer scale of Azzam, we decided to look at how much fuel she can take, and how that compares to the things we’re more familiar with fuelling up ourselves...
That’s the equivalent of refilling a typical hatchback car more than 23,800 times, and the same amount of fuel could fill up almost six Boeing 747 commercial airliners.
Likewise, it would take the fuel of 3,636 London double-decker buses or 167 24-metre (78-foot) yachts to fill Azzam.
So in answer to the question 'how much fuel does it take to fill the largest superyacht in the world?', the answer is: a lot!
