One of the largest and most expensive mega yachts ever built, the stunning £400 million Topaz is taking to the water for the first time.
The huge watercraft comes from British designer Tim Heywood, who has been constructing the megayacht in the (ironically) landlocked area of Rutland for four years.
It is the fourth longest yacht ever built, ringing in at 147 meters, just a mere 15 meters shorter than Roman Abramovich’s Eclipse, which has become something of the standard to measure by. Topaz boasts a weight estimated to be in excess of 12,000 tons.
The owner’s identity remains a secret, as manufacturer Lurssen has kept all private details under wraps.
