    Mysterious Billionaire Commissions World’s Largest Yacht [VIDEO]





    The world’s largest yacht has been commissioned by an anonymous billionaire. The 590-foot vessel will be called Azzam, which is Arabic for perseverance or determination. The builder, Lurssen, is not offering any further details of the commissioner, or the interior of the vessel.

    The yacht is almost as large as a cruise ship, powered by water jets, and is capable of moving a time-and-half faster than an average cruise ship. It would cost an estimated $100,000 just to fill its fuel tank.

    So do you think this boat is going to be big enough for one person and his closest friends?

    He's getting a very good price on his fuel considering that boat probably holds about 200-300,000 gallons.

    Try something closer to $1,000,000 to fill'er up when he's not at home. Not a problem because that's already budgeted in the 50 (who know how many) million per year operating expense. Minimum net worth of the owner of such a boat is probably around 5 billion. I don't even know what those numbers mean.

    Rumor has it that the owner is that 20-billionaire Saudi who bought into I think it was Citibank during the height to date of the great financial breakdown.

    Here's another one in his fleet
