Harbour to host 412ft yacht – but it will be a bit light on luxury features and big on ports of call
What the $600M ‘world’s biggest yacht’ will look like inside
After almost three decades, the annual yacht-building sale that is the New York Boat Show will finally see a massive production being launched on to the market.
The world’s biggest yacht is getting ready to be unveiled at the show and will be called The Seaworld and ultimately set sail for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. The 192m (633ft) vessel has already cost its owners $600m and will be the biggest yacht of the year when it makes its debut at the show.
Described as a 170-feet (55m) yacht, the Harbour, which has been built for a Turkish billionaire, has very little luxury in common with the magnificent size of The Seaworld. The yacht is a workhorse, with a journey of 6,000 miles (9,400km) between Gibraltar and Los Angeles listed among its port calls.
The Seaworld is reportedly 19 stories tall, stretching 192 metres (667ft) in length and carrying 26 crew members. It also comes equipped with a hot tub, big private infinity pool, a sauna, gym, a helicopter landing pad, massage room, five-star cinema, two god pods, dolphin-training room, library, massage room, family room and eight bedrooms.

But the yacht has a long list of owners, including a record-setting Russian oligarch, the TV and music producer Tommy Mottola, sportsperson Sol Campbell and former US president Bill Clinton. Along with The Seaworld, they will attend the show in New York City to view the yacht.
“There are only three men who could build a 164m yacht – my father, my friend, and me. We call it Seaworld, which stands for ‘Meet Every Billionaire,’” Seaworld’s master builder, Emmanuel Hirmonidis, said.
“This yacht will be one of the last in the world, because by 2022, the superyacht world will change again, there will be more smaller boats available,” Hirmonidis said.
