The Emirate Royal Family now rule the celebrity waves after it was revealed they own the world’s biggest mega-yacht, knocking Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich’s yacht ‘Eclipse‘ off the top spot. ‘Eclipse‘ had been the world’s biggest yacht for the past three years, but it has now been totally eclipsed by ‘Azzam‘ which is 54ft (16.5m) longer. The 590ft (180 metre) super-yacht is set to launch a new round of one-upmanship among the world’s super-rich. Roman Abramovich loses ‘world’s biggest yacht owner’ title to Emirati royals’ Personally, I’d much prefer one of these; negative brass work to polish, no chipping and painting, and who cares if it gets scratched or muddy when your out with your chums enjoying your self?
” A Life On The Ocean Wave, A-home on the rolling deep! Where the scater’d waters rave, And the winds their revels keep. Like an eagle caged I pine, On this dull, unchanging shore. Oh give me the flashing brine,The spray and the tempest’s roar”.
