Seen here arriving in Gibraltar fresh from having completed an Atlantic crossing is the 162.5m superyacht Eclipse. For a couple of years, Eclipse, built by German shipyard Blohm & Voss GmbH, held the title of the world's longest superyacht. She may have been pushed back to the second spot by the 180 metre Azzam, but at 162.5 metres, she remains highly impressive nevertheless. The enormous yacht, owned by a well known Russian businessman, accommodates 36 guests and can carry up to 100 crew members. Some of Eclipse’s most impressive features include a massive 200m² swim platform, a large pool on the main aft deck and two helicopter landing pads.
