America's 100 Largest Yachts 2007 #20: Rasselas

#20: RASSELAS—203'4"

Seen in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, over the summer, Rasselas looks much like her same-named, smaller (by about 30 feet) predecessor, right down to certain furnishings. But her level of engineering is decidedly higher, ranging from the night-vision camera on her foremast to her central-air system. Her owner, Kenneth Rainin, who developed scientific instruments and donated to multiple medical-research causes, worked closely with Feadship to ensure all of this. Sadly he died last spring.
