Your Home at sea: The World

With 165 individual Residences, The World is the largest private residential yacht on Earth. Launched in 2002, the Ship is continuously maintained to the highest standards of performance, safety, and style – representing the pinnacle of bespoke comfort, sophisticated design, and remarkable amenities.

The best of all worlds

At 644 feet / 196 meters, The World is large enough to hold several extraordinary culinary venues, recreational spaces, and world-class amenities, yet with an average of only 200 or fewer Residents & Guests aboard at any given time, The World elegantly balances a sense of community with privacy and serenity. The Ship has the size and power for comfortable transoceanic crossings and polar exploration, and at the same time is small enough to dock in rarely-visited ports inaccessible to large commercial cruises.

The most extraordinary Home you will ever own

Each of the 165 Residences aboard The World is a privately owned, exquisitely stylish Home. From elegant studios to vast Ocean Residences with two or three bedrooms and spacious entertaining areas, Residents begin and end each day in any corner of the globe surrounded by the genuine comforts of home.

The World is always evolving

Our Residents collectively own the Ship, and they continually invest in maintaining and improving every aspect of The World’s shared spaces, as well as their private homes on board. Every three years, The World enters a major dry-dock, during which extensive renovations and visionary redesigns elevate the restaurants, lounges, and other facilities of the Ship beyond even our own unsurpassed standards.
