Massive superyacht with two helicopter landing pads has everyone saying the same thing

Massive superyacht with two helicopter landing pads has everyone saying the same thing

The vessel is a whopping 156-meters long

If you ever wondered what $600 million could get you, the answer is the world's largest superyacht.

The boat was constructed in 2016 and is described as 'the most complex and challenging yachts ever built'.

And when you learn of the insane details of the vessel, you'll understand why.

Named the Dilbar, the yacht is 156-meters long and boasts it own 25-meter swimming pool (the largest to ever be installed on a yacht).

Shipbuilding company Lürssen also insists that the Dilbar 'features entertainment and recreation spaces never before seen on a yacht'.

It is crewed by 96 people and can sleep up to 24 passengers.

But, if that wasn't enough to entice you, the superyacht has not one, but two helicopter landing pads.

While the two pads are undeniably pretty impressive, a lot of people have been asking the same thing: why a yacht would need two of them?

People have been debating the matter on Reddit, and there's some amusing responses.

The Dilbar superyacht has 2 heli-pads.

"He has two helipads because the walk between ends of the boat is too long," one person quipped.

"When 1 heli-pad is not enough," added a second.

Someone else joked: "'But, daddy, where will I put my other helicopter?!'"

"In all honesty, the extra helipad is for when another oligarch needs to arrive via helicopter," a different person continued.

Elsewhere, others said it wasn't a yacht but more like a cruise ship because of it's size.

The ship had been owned by billionaire Alisher Usmanov's sister, but the boat was seized in 2022 following an investigation into the ship's 'true' owner.

Usmanov had been facing allegations of money laundering.

In a tweet, the German federal crime office said at the time: "The #BKA determined the owner of the M/S #Dilbar through extensive investigations despite offshore concealment.

"This is Gulbakhor Ismailova, Alisher Usmanov's sister.

"The luxury yacht Dilbar is therefore subject to sanctions law and was able to be legally impounded in Hamburg."

Dilbar is named after Usmanov's mother.

It was later ruled by a German court that the raids on the $600 million yacht in connection to Usmanov were illegal.

A law firm representing the multibillionaire argued in court last year that any basis for suspected money laundering by Usmanov 'does not exist, has never existed, and all search measures of the public prosecutor's office in Frankfurt based on this suspicion were, without exception, unlawful', Reuters reported at the time.
