By Aimee Shaw

Amazing footage has emerged of a helicopter landing on billionaire Graeme Hart's 107 metre-long superyacht Ulysses.

Ulysses, which was launched in Norway this year, is up for sale for $266 million.

The superyacht which boasts a total of 15 cabins, a helipad and a jacuzzi is staffed by a crew of 42 and can accommodate up to 30 guests. It was available to hire for $400,000 a week.

Hart has a total of three luxury yachts - a larger 116m vessle also called Ulysses and a 77 metre-long vessel called Weta.

Two of Hart's ships that are similar in size to the Royal New Zealand Navy's two frigates, the HMNZS Te Mana and HMNZS Te Kaha, which are 118m.

A promotional video was released in September showing off the luxurious lifestyle on board the 107m yacht.

Hart's largest superyacht was designed by Norwegian company Marin Teknikk in cooperation with naval architect Kyle Dick of New Zealand-based Oscar Mike Naval Architects.

The 116m expedition support vessel launched at the Kleven Verft shipyard in Norway in June.

Hart is New Zealand's richest man with a total wealth of $7 billion, according to the National Business Review's 2016 Rich List.
