Moored in the shimmering waters of the Arabian Sea, a 50-meter teak vessel, currently for sale at a cool 9.995 million USD, is the largest wooden superyacht ever built.

Brokered by Bush & Noble, the superyacht dwarfs vessels like The Maltese Falcon, Eclipse, or Azzam. However, aside from its sheer size, this yacht sets itself apart by being crafted from teak, mirroring the lines and building techniques of a traditional Arabian dhow.

“We are thrilled to have this stunning custom wooden yacht as part of our fleet. It truly is a one-of-a-kind yacht that is sure to impress even the most discerning yachting enthusiasts,” says Brett Noble, Co-Founder of Bush & Noble.

When construction began in 2020, the superyacht’s hull became its main talking point. The superstructure is crafted from teak and covered with a GRP shell, making the yacht a work of art to behold. According to Noble, “the construction for the hull was based on traditional dhow techniques, whereas the superstructure combines the latest techniques with old-school aesthetics”. It’s clear that this superyacht isn’t just a visually stunning vessel but also a love letter to the shipbuilding traditions of the region.

Under the craft’s sleek exterior are a raft of state-of-the-art navigation and safety systems. Meanwhile, the yacht’s interior boasts a completely bespoke and utterly luxurious suite of cabins that can accommodate 12 guests alongside a team of five crew members.

Brett Noble explained the uniqueness of this special build. “This type of yacht exemplifies the Middle East market in many ways, but mostly because not many people are brave enough to step outside the comfort zone of GRP or similar construction. As with Dubai, they always push the limits of what is possible”.
