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.

#26:GOLDEN ODYSSEY —265’7”

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

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #28: Al Diriyah

#28: AL DIRIYAH —257’9”

Al Diriyah has spent many a day in Puerto Banus, Spain, alongside a number of yachts owned by the Saudi royal family—and leading us to believe in previous years that she belonged to the late Saudi King Fahd. She’s named for a protected site in the abandoned former capital of Saudi

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #29: Delphine

#29: DELPHINE—257’8”

This is the only steam yacht in this size range available for charter—and one of the few steam yachts still equipped with her original engines.

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #30: Montkaj

#30: MONTKAJ—256’0”

This yacht frequents Monaco as well as Cannes and Antibes in France. Distinctive round ports dot her upper decks. While most yachts these days have custom lighting that beautifully illuminates them at night, the scheme aboard Montkaj is truly impressive; warm accent lighting highlights her upper

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #31: Lone Ranger

#31: LONE RANGER—255’0”

Lone Ranger was seen Down Under in Sydney around the Christmas holidays. She’d had quite a year in ‘05, kicking it off with a trip to Antarctica in January and February and then heading to the decidedly warmer waters of Tahiti.

Y: 1973/1994; B: Schichau-Unterwesser, Germany; N: Claus Kusch (conversion); H: Steel;

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #32: Samar

#32: SAMAR—252’6”

For the better part of the past three years, this yacht has been shrouded in secrecy. In fact, if you’re an avid yacht-watcher, this is probably the first time you’re seeing her real name, as she’s been known as Project Lana at the owner’s request since the contract was signed. While most of her features are a mystery, there are a few

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #33: Princess Mariana

#33: PRINCESS MARIANA—252’3”

Does your boss treat you well? Bet he or she isn’t as good to you and your fellow employees as Princess Mariana’s owner is to his. Carlos Peralta Quintero (who’s also the president of Mexican cellular phone company Iusacell and the owner of the Mexico City Tigres baseball team) treated a
