World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #81: Apogee

#81: APOGEE—205'0"

A funny thing happened to Darwin Deason, a Texan who runs the computer company ACS, several years ago. He told D Magazine, “We were going to the beach one day, and it was raining like hell, and these friends convinced me to go look at boats. I said, ‘Aw, I don’t want a boat.’ Well, at the end of the day, I had bought an 85-foot

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #82: Fortunato

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #83: Virginian

#83: VIRGINIAN—204'2"

The mahogany-paneled saloon with a working fireplace is the perfect place to relax aboard Virginian. If her walls could talk, imagine the tales they’d tell; people ranging from Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor (the Sixth Duke of Westminster) to John Kluge (founder of Metromedia) and even the late Malcolm Forbes (who needs no

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #84: Lady Christina

#84: LADY CHRISTINA—203'4"

If you’re going to treat yourself to a little luxury, borrow a page from this yacht’s owner: He’s devoted a private saloon and dining area to himself within his suite, plus a duplex bath and the complete upper deck. Considering there are only four guest cabins, friends or family won’t feel terribly slighted

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #86: Rasselas

#86: RASSELAS—203'4"

If you compare interior photos of this Rasselas to her predecessor, another Feadship about 30 feet smaller, you might conclude that she’s a carbon copy. But in reality, there are big differences between the two, though mostly on the technology side. One stylistic difference, though, is evident right below the mast: An open area

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #87: Sarah

#87: SARAH—203'4"

Sarah is just one of many yachts that have enjoyed cruising in Spain in recent years. Donald Starkey oversaw both her styling and interior design. Fully forward on her uppermost deck is a Jacuzzi tub, one of the best spots in the house for taking in the view.

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #88: Solemar

#88: SOLEMAR—201'8"

The owner’s suite is a two-deck affair on the main deck aboard Solemar. Just one question, though: Who could possibly concentrate on work in the office, raised on the same level as the lounge/day room, considering it offers panoramic views? Take the virtual tour yourself at

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #90: New Sunrise

#90: NEW SUNRISE—201'1"

Charter guests can tickle the ivories in this canoe-sterned yacht’s saloon, or they can admire the sunrise insignia (golden, of course) on her mast from the Jacuzzi or lounges on the sundeck.

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #91: Il Vagabondo Again

#91: IL VAGABONDO AGAIN—200'7"

Owners sometimes do the strangest things: This yacht was rechristened with the name you see here after being known as Il Vagabondo, but all while under the same Saudi ownership. She calls Port Camille Rayon in France home.

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #92: Darnice III

#92: DARNICE III—200'1"

When this yacht was being built at Benetti, her owner had a stake in the shipyard. She could still be owned by that same person, a Libyan by birth who held Italian and Canadian passports at one point, though it’s hard to obtain information on her.

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #93: April Fool

#93: APRIL FOOL—200'0"

Fittingly, this lady was launched on April 1. An American acquired her early in the construction process, under the project name Lioness. Not much is known about her at this point, other than that her owner also has a 156-footer built by International Shipyards Ancona a few years ago.
