On the 14th May 2016 Lürssen, the leading shipyard for the manufacture of large yachts, delivered the 156 m yacht Dilbar – the largest motor yacht in the world by gross tonnage.
Without doubt Dilbar is one of the most complex and challenging yachts that has ever been built, both in terms of dimension and technology. With a gross tonnage of 15,917 t, Dilbar provides spaces in the interior which have never been seen on a yacht before.
A few insights:
Her indoor pool holds a stunning 180 m³ of water and is the largest pool to have been built on a yacht.
Her diesel electric power plant of 30.000 kW is the largest installed on any yacht and allows her to operate at a continuous speed of 22,5 knots.
A total surface of 10,000 m² has been faired and painted and more than 1,100 km of cabling has been fitted.
Shipyard Managing Partner Peter Lürssen proudly said: “Building Dilbar was a great challenge and we are proud of this achievement, especially considering the contract time of only 52 months. She truly represents another exceptional milestone in not only our history, but in yachting history as well”.
Under clear guidance and leadership of the owner, the general arrangement and exterior design was developed by Espen Oeino who has given Dilbar a timeless classical profile which is underlined by the light ivory colour of the hull and the bronze accents.
Espen Oeino stated: “We here at Espen Oeino International, feel honoured and privileged to have been part of this incredible voyage. The close cooperation with all parties involved was the catalyst for making the yacht as magnificent as she is.”
Her interior design was created at the Andrew Winch Design office in London and is truly spectacular. Unique mixes of rare and striking materials give her an extraordinary look and feel.
Andrew Winch quoted: “Dilbar has been a big part of my life. She is truly special, culturally unique and incredibly detailed in so many ways. We are sure that her owners will enjoy every space on board.”
Peter Lürssen added: “Dilbar is a proud example of the size palette Lürssen can build and our order book currently features several yachts starting from 70 m.”
