Is That a Gigayacht in Your Pocket?

Wow:

Pictured for the first time, this is the superyacht that is set to eclipse all others.

Called Double Century, she has an incredible nine decks, will rise 88 feet above the water and at 656-feet long, she’s twice the length of a football field and 130 feet longer than the biggest superyacht around today, the Azzam, owned by the President of the United Arab Emirates.

Roman Abramovich’s Eclipse will also be put in the shade by Double Century, measuring a relatively meagre 535 feet.

By way of comparison, the USS Yorktown, lost at the Battle of Midway, measured 770 feet at the waterline — yet didn’t have even a single swimming pool.
