World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #14: Evergreen

#14: EVERGREEN—302’4”

Given the strength of sales throughout the megayacht market, especially in this stratospheric size range, it’s strange to see that this yacht has been for sale for the past several years. She can accommodate 28 guests, features a karaoke lounge, and belongs to Evergreen shipping corporation founder and chairman Chang

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #16: Nahlin

#16: NAHLIN—300’0”

Nahlin arrived at Nobiskrug in Germany last summer for a long and undoubtedly laborious restoration, given her age and condition. From the 1980’s through the late 1990’s, she’d been left to deteriorate in Romania, having been used as a restaurant for a few decades prior to that. And while she’d been partially refitted earlier

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #17: Ice

#17: ICE—295’3”

Formerly known as Air under Italian ownership, this Lrssen sold to 40-year-old oil billionaire Suleiman Kerimov of Russia last year. The yacht ventured from Barcelona to Antigua before ringing in 2006, then visited Aruba in March, where some people were under the impression that she belonged to

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #18: Constellation

#18: CONSTELLATION—290’3”

There was some confusion as to whether or not this vessel belonged on our list. Part of the reason was we’d confused her with same-named (and similar-size) Oceanco belonging to a Middle Eastern head of state, and for the purposes of this list, we exclude yachts such as that. Confusion over, we now know that this

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #19: Asean Lady

#19: ASEAN LADY—289’0”

While Brian Chang, the head of China’s Yantai-Raffles Shipyard and Asean Lady’s owner, commissioned his yacht to withstand rough weather better than traditional motoryachts, he certainly didn’t expect to have to put her to the test the way she was in 2004. Anchored off Phuket, Thailand that December, the yacht experienced the

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #20: Arctic P

#20: ARCTIC P—288’7”

Sixty-eight-year-old Australian media baron Kerry Packer, who owned this converted commercial craft for a little more than a decade, died last December. Hundreds of people, including several titans of business from around the world, attended his funeral, and some people, such as British financier Joe Lewis, were put up on the yacht.

World's 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #22: Kingdom 5KR

#22: KINGDOM 5KR—281’9”

First it was the world’s richest people, then it was the world’s most expensive yachts, and now it’s the world’s most eligible billionaires; Prince Alwaleed of Saudi Arabia is on all of these Forbes’ lists. (What will they think of next, the world’s richest eligible bachelors who own the world’s most expensive yachts?) In

World's 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #24: Annaliesse

#24: ANNALIESSE—279’8”

Given that she’s the same size, carries the same number of guests and crew (36 and 34, respectively), and looks nearly the same as Alysia, why would someone opt to charter Annaliesse instead? Maybe it’s the 1,313-square-foot master suite, with

World's 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #25: O'Mega

#25: O’MEGA—270’7”

For $413,000 per week plus expenses, you can use O’Mega’s yoga and pilates studio, beauty salon, massage services, indoor and outdoor Jacuzzi tubs (hey, a proper yacht can’t have just one, you know), and myriad watertoys, such as windsurfers, kneeboards, three-seater PWCs, and even a banana boat.

World's 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #26: Golden Odyssey

#26:GOLDEN ODYSSEY —265’7”

Golden Odyssey is the pride of Prince Khalid of Saudi Arabia, who serves as the country’s deputy defense minister. He’s passionate about ocean research, particularly the preservation of coral reefs, and has loaned his yacht as well as others in his “Golden Fleet,” including

World's 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #27: Bart Roberts

#27: BART ROBERTS—265’0”

Here’s another yacht that has unfortunately remained for sale for some time. Her current asking price is $15 million, $20 million less than originally desired. Perhaps her pirate-theme interior and exterior are just too much for most buyers to swallow. It took a little more than a year to transform her from a Canadian Coast Guard
