Dubai is a yacht owned by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, currently ruler and vice president of Dubai and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates. This ship is 162 metres (531 ft) long and the third largest yacht in the world after Azzam and Eclipse. It can accommodate more than 115 guests, including the crew.
Designed by Andrew Winch, platinum yachts' interior design costs US$400 million. Construction was planned for Prince Jefri Bolkiah of Brunei as a joint project between the Shipyards of Blohm + Voss and Lurssen before 1996. The advance stopped until 2001, when the ship was purchased by Platinum Yachts for Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The yacht Platinum, Panhandle and Golden Star were later renamed Dubai.

This dramatic circular staircase with natural light on the upper deck features color-changing glass steps. It has Anchor Stabilizers, Gym, Spa, Jacuzzi (on deck), Elevator, Helipad, Swimming Pool, Cinema, Dance Floor, Garage, Swimming Platform and more.
