The global authority in superyachting
On board the world's largest private residence yacht
The largest private residence yacht on the water - 196 metre superyacht The World - has welcomed back residents on board and will resume her extensive sailing program after more than a year in July 2021. We take a look inside her interiors to reveal the luxury apartments and facilities on offer to those who call her home.
Apartments on board The World
The World has a total of 165 luxury residences on board and an average occupancy of 150 to 200 people at a time. There are currently 150 families originating from 20 different countries residing on board in apartments ranging from studio size to three-bedroom homes.
There are a total of six communal restaurants for residents to enjoy on board The World. Dishes served are inspired by the current location in which the superyacht is moored, with the culinary team sourcing ingredients from local markets, sometimes joined by residents on their excursions.
