Superyacht ECLIPSE, the World’s Largest Yacht is near her completion. She was first launched in June 2009 and has been undergoing finishing and testing work since then in Germany. After these, she will be delivered to her new owner.

Superyacht Eclipse was built by Blohm + Voss for Russian magnate Roman Abramovich who as owner of the Chelsea Football club is reported to be bringing motor yacht ECLIPSE, the largest private mega yacht in the world at 162+ m, to Cape Town South Africa for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Superyacht Eclipse boast a large number of unique and unusual features. There are an unknown number of technological advancements on the private yacht but what is known is that she has facilities for three helicopters. She also has powerful exterior yacht design and a dramatic interior by Britain’s Terence Disdale. Just as the yacht’s interior has custom styling and finishing her deck areas facilitate a 16m swimming pool which is the largest pool on any private superyacht. Amazingly the pool can also be converted into a large dance floor for entertaining.

The accommodation onboard ECLIPSE includes a 56m private yacht owner’s deck as well as additional space for as many as 92 further crew members and staff. This should be more than sufficient for friends and family to enjoy South Africa and the 2010 Football World Cup.
