The $605 million “super-yacht” Azzam now holds the title, a 590-foot yacht that will cost $6 million a year just to maintain and keep on the water.
The Azzam is more than 50 feet longer than the yacht owned by Abramovich, who previously held title to the largest yacht.

From the Daily Mail:
The yacht can accommodate 36 guests in comfort, and boasts a cinema, conference facilities, children’s playroom, beauty salon, dance floor, swimming pool and sauna.
