Thank you my dear Tophe,

and notice that the other Rumpler flying boat had only two fuselages
but here it had four fuselages.

Judging this contemporary artist's impression, it principally were six, with only the inner four carrying
tail booms, but the outer ones used for carrying load/passengers, too and not just auxiliary floats.
(From Luftfahrt International N° 14, March/April 1976)

From Wolfgang Wagner "Der deutsche Luftverkehr - Die Pionierjahre 1919 - 1925" a drawing showing
the internal arrangement of the Siemens-Schuckert-Werke (SSW) R IX.
The installation of the eight engines in the fuselage is clearly visible.

Two pictures of Edmund Rumpler's Transoceanic Airplane of 1926 (the second one replaces one I had posted earlier in lesser quality).

Source: Flugzeug Classic, October 2004 (article also attached below).

Thank you all for answering. So, I think that Klamt design was the largest of it's kind (considering wingspan). Can we define what was the largest luxury flying boat design?
Hugs.

Hi!

After looking a the material our friend recommended, (1926 volume of the German "Flugsport" magazine) I was able to find another image of the Klamt giant flying boat. Do you think it was also meant to have windows like a promenade in the leasing edge of the windows?
