America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #18: White Cloud

#18: WHITE CLOUD—220'10"

From Singapore to the South of France, there’s barely a harbor White Cloud hasn’t visited. She was in Thailand earlier this year, for example, before heading to one of her owner’s favorite marinas, the IYCA in Antibes, France. It’s a long way from his new home in California.

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #19: Allure Shadow

#19: ALLURE SHADOW—220'0"

Six guest staterooms, all with balconies, and a dining area that lets you watch a helicopter land and take off from the deck are among the features making this converted vessel stand out. There’s also a 65-inch TV in the theater on the lower deck, just forward of the galley.

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #20: Turmoil

#20: TURMOIL—209'0"

Because the late Gary Comer, the founder of Lands’ End clothing company, was passionate about preserving the environment, he had his yacht equipped with special equipment to sample the sea and air, so that scientists could analyze them for the effects of global warming. Of course, she is also outfitted with plenty of creature comforts,

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #21: Apogee

#21: APOGEE—205'0"

Water skis, fishing gear, kayaks, you name it; Apogee’s got it. There’s even a jukebox and karaoke system to keep guests entertained (or, as the case may be, running to their staterooms for some peace and quiet). She charters for $450,000 for a week.

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #22: Fortunato

#22: FORTUNATO—204'5"

Some yachts show off new paint jobs, others show off an extension or restyling. Not to be outdone, shortly after New Year’s Day, Fortunato showed off a cool new accessory: a water slide. It lets guests take a thrilling trip from the uppermost deck down into the sea. You can learn more by visiting her Web site,

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #23: Mylin IV

#23: MYLIN IV—200'0"

Seen in Norway in July, Mylin IV has been visiting northern climes in summertime for the past few years. She’s the larger of two yachts (see no. 38) belonging to Mickey Arison, head of Carnival Cruise Lines. His late father was the original owner and named her for his wife, Lin.

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #24: April Fool

#24: APRIL FOOL—199'10"

Despite what other yachts her size range feature, April Fool has just four guest staterooms. Her owner planned to cruise with just intimate parties, so he didn’t feel the need to add more. When the sun becomes too much but guests still want to enjoy the alfresco ambiance, retractable awnings on the sundeck come to the

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #25: Mduse

#25: MDUSE—198'10"

Mduse, whose name means jellyfish in French, is the second yacht on our list owned by Paul Allen (see no. 2). He’s traveled to some amazing places onboard, including the Amazon River. That’s also where rock star Peter Gabriel reportedly put good use to the onboard recording studio. This year he pulled into New Orleans for Jazz

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #26: Blue Moon

#26: BLUE MOON—198'0"

You’ll have to pardon the residents of Milwaukee who went a little nuts last July when this yacht pulled into town. You see, some of them swore they saw Oprah Winfrey and her film crew on or near the boat, and naturally some of them assumed the yacht belonged to her. Even a local NBC affiliate was amazed by Blue Moon,

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #27: Paraffin

#27: PARAFFIN—197'2"

Why would a 400-bottle wine collection be aboard a yacht unless there was a gimbaled champagne holder to accompany them, to prevent precious drops from spilling? Seriously, you’ve got to see the perfectly polished, beautifully inscribed holder aboard Paraffin. Custom made by a Dutch company called Bottler and designed by the

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #28: Pegasus

#28: PEGASUS—196'9"

Formerly known as Aviva II, this lady had us a bit confused last year. One reliable source insisted her owner under that name was American, while others declared the owner was British but was getting interest from an American. Turns out the latter was true and he ended up buying the yacht.

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #29: Oasis

#29: OASIS—194'9"

When this yacht’s owner was putting together the build and design team, he chose Glade Johnson for the styling because he was a fan of Johnson’s handiwork aboard another Lrssen, Capri. He and his wife also wanted the sundeck to serve multiple purposes, so it not only accommodates touch-and-go helicopter operations but also transforms
