Superyacht Eclipse is believed to have space on board for 30 guests in 15 extremely luxurious cabins alongside room for an astonishing 75 crew members. She is also said to include a personal submarine, a 16m swimming pool which converts into a dance floor as well as a truly stunning interior design from Terrence Disdale.

M/Y Eclipse is now the largest superyacht in the world, just beating the previous title holder of 162m M/Y Dubai alongside taking the number one spot in the Superyachts.com Top 100 Largest Yachts 2010/2011.
