Project Omar – Over $300 Million
Little is known about the 156 meter project Omar except that it is scheduled to launch in 2016 and just recently finished it’s first sea trial in early March. Project Omar, which is rumored to soon be renamed Dilbar, was reportedly ordered by Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov.

The Al Said – Price $300 Million
Al Said was named after its owner Sultan Qaboos Bin Said Al Said of Oman. Little is known about this yacht and rumor has it that a picture has never been taken of it’s interior. This mysterious vessel cost a cool $300 million to build and can apparently accommodate up to 70 people. Which doesn’t include the 150+ crew members needed to run the supership. Inside one can expect all the latest amenities and apparently there’s even a concert hall capable of accommodating an orchestra.
The Dubai – reported cost $350 million
Launched in 2006, this megayacht is owned by His Highness Sheik Mohammed Rashid al-Maktoum the ruler of Dubai.

The Azzam – reported cost $650 million
The Azzam is owned by the President of the United Arab Emirates and Emir of Abu Dhabi. This 590 foot beast is truly a mega-yacht and the largest in the world.

A world-class team was personally assembled and directed in all areas of development of this sophisticated project by Eng. Mubarak Saad al Ahbabi.
The designer is Christophe Leoni from France but much of the other details about the yacht are shrouded in typical Arabian secrecy. It just adds to the appeal! Rumors estimate that yearly upkeep on a ship of this size could cost up to $65 Million!
The Eclipse – reported costs $1.5 billion
This is a huge yacht at 536 feet long and the fact that it is so large means that so much luxury has been added to the yacht for the owner Roman Abramovich – the Russian oligarch and owner of Chelsea Football Club.
It is filled with all of the trappings of success and boasts swimming pools, hot tubs and even a disco hall. Who wouldn’t want to own this? A crazy cool feature is the fact that the eclipse has its own mini submarine that can dive from the yacht.
As you would expect with any yacht owned by a billionaire, security is a major feature. It has armor plating and bulletproof windows to protect the owner and his guests.
