The Middle East is home to almost a third of the more than 200 of the largest yachts in the world, including Azzam, the largest modern day super yacht, owned by Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The 30-40 meter yachts have witnessed maximum market growth in this region. Globally the United Arab Emirates ranks in the top 10 Superyacht manufacturers. The world’s two of the most luxurious Superyacht's are owned by the President and the Vice President of UAE.
