You can tell a lot about a yard’s history, ambition and capabilities by taking a closer look at its flagship — the largest delivered yacht in the fleet. We round-up nine of the most significant flagship yachts on the water today.
We start with the mother of all flagships, the largest superyacht in the world, 180 metre Azzam. Designed by Nauta and launched by the German yard Lürssen in 2013, her immense size is reflective of the yard’s dominance of the higher end of the market, with the six largest yachts in the world all built by either Lürssen or its new sister company Blohm+Voss.
