The superyacht can accommodate up to 24 guests as it has an owner’s suite, five VIP suites and six guest suites, all with open balconies.

Featuring a stunning 70ft wide atrium, a nightclub and a cinema, the vessel has cabins for 88 crew as well as the captain, chief engineer and doctor so it can house a total of 115 mense.

The 531ft yacht that was launched in 2006 by Platinum yachts is the world’s fourth-largest private yacht.

The vessel’s construction initially started for Prince Jefri Bolkiah of Brunei but it was halted.

In 2001 the hull built by Blohm + Voss was sold to Platinum Yachts who then completed the project and named it Dubai.

The superyacht that can reach speeds of 29mph also features an impressive staircase with glass steps that change colour, a barbecue area, a gym and a nightclub.

Visitors can enjoy the sun in one of the many sunbathing areas such as the mosaic swimming pool or the stunning Jacuzzis.

Dubai is among the biggest superyachts in the world, right after Azzam , the 538ft Fulk Al Salamah and Roman Abramovich’s, Eclipse.

Megayacht Azzam is up for sale for a whopping $600million after it took the record for the world’s most lucrative vessel when it was constructed in 2013.
