Dubai moored in Dubai PortPhoto: Tom van Oossanen / SuperYacht TimesPictured here in Dubai is the third largest superyacht in the world, the 162-metre superyacht Dubai. Built by Platinum Yachts and completed in 2006, a large part of her hull and superstructure was completed in Germany at Blohm + Voss in co-operation with Lürssen. After the unfinished yacht was sold to the ruler of Dubai - who is still her current owner - she was transported from Germany to the Platinum Yachts’ facilities in Dubai for completion. She was designed by Andrew Winch Designs, with Nakheel Interiors collaborating on her interior.
