America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #8: Talitha

#8: TALITHA—247'4"

You read that name right: She’s now Talitha, not Talitha G. This summer, shortly after she emerged from a refit at Blohm + Voss that saw the construction of new funnels to hide some of her nav and communication equipment and thereby preserve her classic lines, she dropped the "G." Her longstanding Web site, talitha-g.com,

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #9: Laurel

#9: LAUREL—240'0"

If you ever see Laurel, be sure to say hello to the littlest "crewmember," a toddler, who’s the daughter of the captain and the purser. The yacht was built with a nursery to keep the couple happy in case they wanted to start a family. Prior to arriving in Australia, this family and the family-oriented vessel have visited Maine,

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #10: Utopia

#10: UTOPIA—234'9"

Despite sarcastic suggestions by Wall Street watchers who want him to sell his toys and prop up their stock holdings, Bill Miller, the Legg Mason Value Trust fund manager, doesn’t have his yacht for sale. The yacht has two VIP staterooms on the main deck, the owner’s suite up one deck from there, and three more twin-bed staterooms (one

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #12: Reverie

#12: REVERIE —229'7"

Seems pretty silly to have a gym aboard a yacht with seven decks-after all, if you can’t get a workout running up and down the stairs, nothing will do the trick-but it’s hard to argue with the view Reverie’s gym boasts. Since it’s up one level from the main deck and aft, it gives you the

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #13: Martha Ann

#13: MARTHA ANN—229'6"

Even though all the guest staterooms on this new yacht’s lower deck feature king-size beds, no doubt someone’s going to make a run for the queen-equipped VIP, considering the cabin is just forward of the skylounge on the bridge deck. No worries if guests want to visit with each other: A circular glass

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #14: Attessa

#14: ATTESSA—225'0"

Owned by Dennis Washington (see no. 5), the "small" Attessa on our list has a private cinema and, in the bridge-deck saloon, an antique marble fireplace. She’s solely for private use, and you’re apt to see her cruising up and down the Pacific shoreline of North America.

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #15: Lady Anne

#15: LADY ANNE—224'7"

Venice, Italy, is one of the European cities Lady Anne visited this summer. Apparently the owners are big fans of cooking, so they have their own galley in their suite. There’s also a hibachi next to the traditional barbecue on an aft deck. Should anyone wish to depart the yacht for dinner, a custom Serenella limousine tender

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #16: Kismet

#16: KISMET—223'1"

Persian carvings flank the elevator in Kismet’s lobby, just outside the master suite. Guests have no reason to complain about their accommodations, considering the four staterooms are each 323 square feet. And there’s also a massage room aboard.

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #18: White Cloud

#18: WHITE CLOUD—220'10"

From Singapore to the South of France, there’s barely a harbor White Cloud hasn’t visited. She was in Thailand earlier this year, for example, before heading to one of her owner’s favorite marinas, the IYCA in Antibes, France. It’s a long way from his new home in California.

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #19: Allure Shadow

#19: ALLURE SHADOW—220'0"

Six guest staterooms, all with balconies, and a dining area that lets you watch a helicopter land and take off from the deck are among the features making this converted vessel stand out. There’s also a 65-inch TV in the theater on the lower deck, just forward of the galley.

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #20: Turmoil

#20: TURMOIL—209'0"

Because the late Gary Comer, the founder of Lands’ End clothing company, was passionate about preserving the environment, he had his yacht equipped with special equipment to sample the sea and air, so that scientists could analyze them for the effects of global warming. Of course, she is also outfitted with plenty of creature comforts,
