The record-breaking vessel will be over 40 meters longer than the world's current biggest superyacht, "Azzam" (pictured), believed to be owned by the President of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Klaus Jordan/Lürssen

"Our client was concerned that if we built the yacht to 200 meters, then someone would come along like Roman Abramovich when he built "Eclipse" at 163.5 meters, and outdid Sheikh Maktoum's yacht, the 162 meter "Dubai," by only 1.5 meters," explained broker Craig Timm. Getty Images
Should "Triple Deuce" be built, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen's yacht "Octopus" (pictured) would be bumped to fifth place on the list of world's biggest private yachts. AFP/Getty Images
Can't afford a superyacht of your own? You could always stay at London's Sunborn Superyacht Hotel. Opened last year, it features 136 rooms costing between $300 and $1,600 per night. Courtesy Sunborn Superyacht Hotel
