Superyacht picture of the day: Lürssen Dilbar
click to enlarge
Designed by Tim Heywood for a Russian owner, the 110m superyacht Dilbar (project Opal) built by Lürssen in 2008 is currently at anchor near the Cap d'Antibes.
This is one of the first green yacht which combines diesel mechanic and diesel electric propulsion system with exhaust gas particle filters for all the generating sets and for the main engine exhaust at lower power.
However, the performance of the yacht is also interesting with a top speed near 20 knots !
At the same time, an article published on Timesonline reported that "More than 100 Russian oligarchs are seeking bailouts from the Kremlin after taking on too much debt during the country’s commodities boom of the past five years"...
