World's largest yacht Azzam takes to sea

Azzam, a $605 million luxury yacht that is the longest and fastest in the world, makes a splash as it is undocked in Germany. 

Largest yacht in the world: Luxury yacht 'Azzam'

BREMEN, GERMANY — The longest luxury yacht in the world, the 590-foot Azzam, is undocked at the Lurssen shipyard in Bremen, Germany.

The yacht is reportedly worth $605 million and has been under construction for three years.

It was constructed for a mystery owner, who many assume to be one of the richest men in the world and from the United Arab Emirates.

Azzam is 57 feet longer than Eclipse, which used to be the longest yacht in the world. Eclipse is owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich.

The new yacht is nearly twice the length of a football field, and can reportedly top speeds of 30 knots, or 34 mph, which makes it the fastest private yacht on the sea, as well, as the largest.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
