#64: AL MENWAR—216'5"

This Middle Eastern-owned yacht was put on the brokerage market for the first time, for $20 million, several months ago, but as this list was being updated, we received word an offer was on the table. The new owner is getting an unusual yacht: All of the guest accommodations are on the upper deck, just aft of the bridge, and the

#67: AMBROSIA—213'3"

This is the third same-named Benetti for her owner, Taiwan native Ambrose Young, but she’s his and the yard’s first with azipod propulsion. Her interior is Art Deco, but an exterior element will probably be discussed more: Two stripes encircle the large dome on her mast.

#69: WHITE ROSE OF DRACHS —213'2"

Talk about a royal welcome: Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, christened this canoe-stern yacht two years ago. You’re apt to see her in Cap d’Ail, France. You might also see a press briefing or two onboard, as her owner, Michael Evans of the UK’s Evans Property Group, has done so in

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #70: Shemara

#70: SHEMARA—212'0"

Harry Hyams, a retired British property developer, has owned this yacht for several years. If his name is familiar, it’s because earlier this year he became the victim of Britain’s biggest-ever theft: 80 million (about $150 million) worth of art from his manor house. His collection is said to be rivaled only by that of the Queen

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #71: Van Triumph

#71: VAN TRIUMPH—212'0"

Van Triumph is a yacht surrounded by mystery; we’ve been trying unsuccessfully for two years to determine whether she’s in the hands of a new owner. Hong Kong financier David Lieu kept her close to home for many years and offered her for sale for $12 million in 2004.

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #73: Lady Marina

#73: LADY MARINA—209'10"

Lady Marina calls Monaco home. She’s the successor to a 164-footer and, like that yacht, features a number of intricate murals. Sergio Mantegazza, a self-made Swiss billionaire (worth more than $2 billion, thanks to the international travel firm Globus), enjoys his yacht so much that he

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #75: Cedar Sea II

#75: CEDAR SEA II—208'8"

Her faucets are real gold, and the woodwork is set with real gems. That’s fitting, as the yacht is owned by the same family that owns the international diamond and jewelry company Mondera.

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #76: Sokar

#76: SOKAR—208'3"

Thirty-two million dollars will get you the famous yacht upon which the late Dodi al-Fayed wooed the late Princess Diana. Anyone with young children or assistants on call around the clock will like how two guest staterooms lay just outside the master suite.
