World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #15: Indian Empress

#15: INDIAN EMPRESS—311'7"

Indian Empress

If you're going to throw a party aboard your boat, then borrow a page from the book of this yacht's owner, Vijay Mallya, the Indian-born liquor billionaire and Formula 1 team owner. In early May, during the Turkish Grand Prix in Istanbul, he

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #17: Mayan Queen

#17: MAYAN QUEEN—301'8"

The code-named project Safari hit the water in May and should be ready for delivery around the time you're reading this. Through super-sleuthing, we discovered her real name is Mayan Queen, which means her owner is Mexican mining billionaire (and experienced yachtsman) Alberto Baillres. She represents a huge step up from

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #19: Nahlin

#19: NAHLIN—300'0"

Three years and still going, the refit of this nearly 80-year-old yacht continues in Germany. It began at Nobiskrug, but she was seen in March en route to Hamburg, possibly to the Blohm + Voss shipyard, which was a sister company at the time. Strict confidentiality agreements have kept even the smallest details about the refit from

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #20: Nero

#20: NERO—295'6"

Nemo

Said to be owned by a Turkish national, this lady launched last year but apparently wasn't delivered until this year. Instead of a transom “beach” with a fold-down platform for guests to climb in and out of the water to swim or dive, Nero has an 18-foot-long side

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #21: Ice

#21: ICE—295'3"

Do you remember your 40th birthday party? As cool as it might have been, it has to pale in comparison to what Suleiman Kerimov, the owner of Ice, did: The Russian oilman and investor paid singers Christina Aguilera and Shakira to perform. (When your estimated worth exceeds $17 billion, you can do things like that.) Seems he views

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #22: Lauren L

#22: LAUREN L—295'3"

Last year, when Liveras Yachts purchased this boat, then known as Constellation, we knew the yacht-management company would have her undergo a refit—and what a refit it turned out to be. Her sixth deck was extended fully to become a sundeck and to reconfigure the space dedicated to the sauna, hair saloon, and other health

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #23: Asean Lady

#23: ASEAN LADY—289'0"

Say what you will about Asean Lady's unusual two-hull design, but there's proven principle behind it. Based on an outrigger canoe, it provides a more stable platform in some seas; in fact, the owner, Brian Chang (who also owns the yard which built her), got the idea while watching boats and ships rock and roll in big seas. Of

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #24: Arctic P

#24: ARCTIC P—288'7"

When Arctic P headed to Tahiti early this spring, one person in particular was probably more excited about stepping aboard than anyone else: the lucky bidder who won a week's charter in the region. The yacht's owner, Australian media magnate James Packer, donated a trip in Tahiti as an auction item during Rock for the Cure, a

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #26: Kingdom 5KR

#26: KINGDOM 5KR—281'9"

This floating palace has another floating palace to compete against: Her owner, Prince Alwaleed of Saudi Arabia, has a new Airbus A380, the world's largest commercial passenger jet, as a private plane. Somehow we don't think Kingdom 5KR will lose out, considering the prince has both relaxed and run his business empire aboard

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #27: Alysia

#27: ALYSIA—279'8"

With a nearly one-to-one guest-to-crew ratio, Alysia ensures charter guests are pampered to the max. That's why she's able to demand—and get—weekly rates ranging from €434,000 to €696,500 plus expenses. What are "expenses"? Things like champagnes and premium alcohol, harbor and agency fees, and of course
