At 156 metres (512 ft), DILBAR is the 5th longest yacht in the world, however, if measured by tonnage, she actually ranks in first place as the largest yacht in the world by interior volume. DILBAR was built by Luerssen in Germany in 2016 for her owner, the Russian oligarch Alisher Usmanov.
The interior of DILBAR was designed by Andrew Winch’s studio based in London. Twelve luxury suites can accommodate 24 guests onboard the yacht. An impressive 96-member crew finds space below deck and tends to every need the guests might have. The crew can move through the vessel on separate crew passageways to ensure maximum privacy and a luxurious experience. The superyacht has a gym, sauna, spa, elevator system, beauty salon and sauna, all for the comfort and entertainment of the guests. She also has the largest indoor pool ever installed on a yacht, measuring a total length of 25 metres. The interior of DILBAR features classical yacht design with beautiful wood elements and opulent furnishings. Blue and gold accents take the interior design of the impressive superyacht to the next level and have earned her several design awards in the past.
DILBAR has a total length of 156 metres (512 ft), a beam of 25.7 metres (84.4 ft) and a draft of 6 metres (19.8 ft). She was built in 2016 by Luerssen shipyard in Lemwerder, Germany and the project took more than four years to complete. Her tonnage lies at 15,917, but she can still reach top speeds of 23 knots despite her weight. Her average cruising speed lies at 18 knots, and she is powered by twin diesel engines.
DILBAR is a multi-award winning yacht with an array of unusual features. Her exterior was designed by the Monaco-based studio of Espen Oeino, which has worked on some of the world’s largest yachts. The exterior of DILBAR is white with bronze and ivory accents to match Usmanov’s other luxury vessels. The yacht has two helipads that can hold Usmanov’s H175 helicopter. Several sunbathing decks with a great selection of seating areas make this yacht the perfect place to relax and enjoy the stunning sea views.
Alisher Usmanov bought DILBAR for an estimated sales price of US $800 million, although this number could be even higher. The yacht generates a further US $50 to 80 million in annual running costs.
The owner of DILBAR is the Russian businessman Alisher Usmanov. His estimated net worth lies at US $17.9 billion making him one of the richest men in Russia. His fortune is largely attributed to investments in the technology sector, including the internet company Mail.Ru and the phone carrier MegaFon. He is also the majority shareholder in the football club Arsenal London. In addition to being the owner of DILBAR, he also has one of the largest private jets in the world, an Airbus A340.
