That's according to Boat International magazine, which includes the definitive guide to the world's biggest superyachts in its January 2015 issue, which goes on sale 11 December.

Boat International, often referred to as the Billionaire's Bible, is the world's leading luxury yachting title, and each year produces the industry's most comprehensive guide to the world's top yachts.

Tony Harris, CEO of Boat International Media, said: "We're extremely proud to present this year's top 101 superyachts, which is the yachting world's equivalent of the Forbes Rich Lists.

"We have access to the best and most complete data, and spend considerable time researching and drawing up the list – and we also feature insider information on all the new entries."

The biggest yacht in the world remains the epic 180 metre Azzam, designed by Nauta Yachts and built at Lurssen in Germany. The biggest new entry, meanwhile, is the super-secret 140 metre Ocean Victory, just launched at Fincantieri in La Spezia, Italy.

Following a comprehensive redesign, the January issue of the magazine also features a guide to the world's best spas to visit by superyacht, as well as contributions from Hugo Rifkind, Eddie Jordan, Jordana Reuben, Sir Ben Ainslie and Simon de Burton.
