M/Y ECLIPSE is understood to measure 170 metres, which indeed makes her the world’s longest yacht by around eight meters. She is now larger than the UAE royal yacht DUBAI, at just over 162 meters long.
The Thyssenkrupp Blohm + Voss shipyard in Hamburg, is a large industrial giant in Germany and the shipbuilder which built the mega yacht ECLIPSE.
The boat was expected to be delivered to her owner Roman Abramovich in late 2009, or accordingy to some reports, sometime in 2010.
