World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #35: Al Diriyah

#35: AL DIRIYAH—257'9"

When we last checked this yacht's travels in marine-traffic records, she was in Greece and expected to head for Port Said in Egypt. She flies the Saudi Arabian flag and gets her name from the original home of the Saudi royal family and capital of the first Saudi dynasty, from the mid-1700's to the early 1800's.

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #37: Eminence

#37: EMINENCE—257'2"

The project that started out as Excellence IV for American car dealer and yachtsman Herb Chambers changed hands several months ago, quietly—so quietly that no formal announcement came, an unusual move considering nearly every yacht sale in the biz is followed up with a press release. Regardless, she's the largest launch

World's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #38: Montkaj

#38: MONTKAJ—256'0"

Underwater lighting, stairway lighting, mast lighting, overall accent lighting—Montkaj has got it all and is a sight to behold at night. She's another Saudi-owned yacht on our list and spends nearly all her time cruising up and down the Cte d'Azur.

World's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #40: Tueq

#40: TUEQ—254'6"

World's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #41: Samar

#41: SAMAR—252'6"

When Samar was commissioned, she represented the largest yacht to be built in the UK since Britannia was launched. On her uppermost deck, a helicopter is stowed aft, while a Jacuzzi that can accommodate a crowd is forward. Among our favorite features of hers are the leather-lined pedestal chairs that are positioned next to

World's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #42: Princess Mariana

#42: PRINCESS MARIANA—252'3"

Carlos Peralta Quintero, president of Mexican telecommunications company Iusacell, has an unusual tender for this Danish-built yacht: a racy-looking 115-footer named Moon Goddess that was also built in Denmark (but by Danish Yacht). While Moon Goddess can zip around at 45 knots, Princess Mariana's no

World's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #43: Lady Sarya

#43: LADY SARYA—250'4"

The refit date you see below isn't a typo: She really was extensively changed two years after her launch, to the tune of being lengthened nearly 40 feet. Sardinia and Greece are among the places she's cruised in recent years. If you're a movie buff, rent the 1978 flick The Greek Tycoon, and you'll get a good look at

#45: TALITHA G—247'4"

Talitha G underwent one heckuva refit last winter in Germany. Not only were parts of the interior gutted, but the original funnels were taken off the yacht, replaced with new ones. The crew—who seem to be a riotously funny lot, judging from their

World's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #46: Giant

#46: GIANT—247'0"

Visit Giant Limited, and you can take a video tour of her deck areas, including her cavernous engine room. You can also look at lots of photos and detailed drawings of various decks as well as read about her toys, which include a Jeep and two 40-foot sportfishermen. What we don't
