Giant yacht heads to Monaco

By Staff Writer - August 25, 2017

The world’s biggest yacht has appeared off the coast, exciting enthusiasts. The 156-metre Dilbar was docked at Antibes at the weekend, where port facilities had to be modified ahead of the summer season, before heading east.

Poralu Marine, a French company based in Ain, was chosen to carry out the creation of a landing stage designed especially for the Dilbar at the Quai des Milliardaires.

The Dilbar was voted “Best Yacht of the Year 2017” in the World Superyacht Awards. It has 20 cabins for 40 passengers and 80 crewmembers, and resembles a small cruise liner in appearance.

The Dilbar, estimated at being worth €510 million, belongs to a Russian billionaire of Uzbek origin, Alisher Usmanov, reported to have a net worth of €12.85 billion. The yacht was seen heading in the direction of Monaco on Tuesday morning.
