May 27th 2015 | lifestyle

Pictured for the first time, this is the superyacht that is set to eclipse all others. Double Century boasts an incredible nine decks and is twice the length of a football field, 130 feet longer than the biggest superyacht around today, the Azzam, owned by the President of the United Arab Emirates. A yacht with such impressive dimensions doesn’t come cheap, with Double Century costing a whopping $770million.

Abramovich's yacht, was completed in December 2010 and will now become the world's third largest superyacht. It’s reign the world's largest superyacht was short lived - in 2013, the Emirati royal family knocked it off its perch with Azzam, which exceeded it in length by 54 feet. Longer than 12 double-decker buses, not only is Azzam the biggest superyacht, it is also one of the fastest. 

Double Century's time at the top could be fairly limited, though, because a gigayacht called Triple Deuce is set to be completed by 2018 - and that measures a staggering 728 feet in length. Let the battle of The World’s Biggest Superyacht commence!

It’s really lovely to have assurance from the company arranging the night that we will be looked after, even after we have paid the money - Charlotte
