World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #56: Attessa

#56: ATTESSA—225'0"

We deserve 30 lashes with a wet chamois for having Attessa’s LOA wrong in last year’s edition. While she was originally launched (for a European, under the name Aviva) at 205 feet, her present owner, American industrialist Dennis Washington, had her extended—and extensively rebuilt,

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #57: Lady Anne

#57: LADY ANNE—224'7"

Six decks provide quite a good amount of play space aboard this yacht. She was in Copenhagen in May, where a tour-boat operator reportedly told his passengers that she belonged to a Microsoft millionaire (but not, oddly enough, Bill Gates, given how so many people think he owns practically every yacht afloat). If you get a chance to

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #58: Amazon Express

#58: AMAZON EXPRESS—220'11"

Despite many changes to her styling (particularly her superstructure) and, of course, her interior, Amazon Express still has a commercial air to her. She was built as a research vessel and converted into a yacht during two stints in yards in Norway and Italy in 1984 and 1994,

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #61: Haida G

#61: HAIDA G—218'0"

From the tips of her masts to the top of her yellow funnel and right on down to her fantail stern and her original (yes, original) engines, Haida G is a glorious example of a classic yacht. She was once owned by Hollywood producer Robert Stigwood, but her current owner, a European, likes keeping a lower profile. You can charter

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #62: White Cloud

#62: WHITE CLOUD—218'0"

Two years ago we’d received word that this yacht had been extended from 197 feet LOA and undergone a dramatic interior change, though we were told conflicting information on the new LOA, so we kept her original length in last year’s edition of “The World’s 100 Largest Yachts.” But the length here is what at least one service yard

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #63: Dilbar

#63: DILBAR—216'6"

There are hot tubs, then there are Jacuzzi tubs, and then, there’s Dilbar’s setup: a waterfall Jacuzzi, on the flying bridge. Should anyone fail to find that enough of a diversion, there’s also an outdoor cinema and an outdoor disco.

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #64: Al Menwar

#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

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #67: Ambrosia

#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.

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #68: Wedge Too

#68: WEDGE TOO—213'3"

Lebanese deputy Prime Minister Issam Fares and his wife Hala have entertained many international dignitaries, ranging from political to philanthropic figures, onboard their Feadship. The teak panels lining her superstructure clue you in to the fact that this is a
